real fun guiding the last week or two and stellar sunny weather too. feel lucky indeed Evan Metter & I climbed at Rumney Rocks on July 12 and had a fun day and he learned a lot i think I had a camp group from Walt Whitman - thanks Narva ! - on Thur Bastille Day July 14 - again at rumney nh, no crowds mid-week is real nice. On friday July 15 me and Joe Soloman - Belmont MA - travelled to Cannon to climb the Whitney - Gilman Ridge classic and we did the north wall variation at 5.8 as well. Joe did awesome too. !
on saturday we battled the weekend crowds at Rumney - went to Jimmy Cliff with two young women from CT - Morgan and Megan - we did clip-it-dee-doo-da and some of the other jimmy cliff routes, plenty of folks out too...On sunday July 17 Dan Albert and I ventured up to Mt Washington and the Northeast Ridge of the Pinnacle Buttress. long hike in but worth it for sure, Dan cruised the route and we were back to Pnkham Notch by 5pm or so, as dark clouds gathered overhead ! today Paul LaFontaine and I tried echo crag in Franconia Notch but we were rained outta there by 11.30 am, trying again in the am
