The yearly transition to spring...some ideas from shim the rhino-in-chief

step 1  rumney sport climbing
step 2  drive 5 hours to the Shawangunks !
step 3  repeat
step 4  hope Cannon Cliff dries out soon...
step 5  ditto for Cathedral and Whitehose ledges.
step 6  back to rumney, try and get strong fingers...

Headed to the New River Gorge on April 23 with 3 folks,  hoping for good weather.  After that its Smith Rocks May 3-7 and the Yosemite valley with Dr Dave Polan from May 12-19.  After that its the Annual New River rendezvous (thanks Sterling Rope) - teaching 2 clinics there May 20 -21  Back to Yosemite on May 28 - June 7 - yahoo ! !
