    Looks like a fun year.

    I should get up a recap as well.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Damn you guys have been getting after it... I ruined sending season a month ago by putting a bread knife into the base of my index finger (I know, proud work). I guess frozen bagels are more dangerous than they appear... Anyway, I spared the tendon but chopped off the radial nerve which required surgery to reattach. It should be 6 month to a year to regain feelings in there and climbing is out of the question for now, leading to endless frustration every time someone posts in this thread or I see the stack of 80 bolts and hangers I should have been plugging into fresh choss the past month...

    Nice TR. That with the link to Solar Slab is one of the (many) routes on my Red Rocks tick list. Hopefully I'll get some of them done this spring.

    Gf's birthday request was a long weekend in St. George so with the help of bringFido.com we ended up having a nice weekend. First day was Solstice Wall, limestone that seemed almost volcanic in spots. Second day was Prophecy Wall, few dozen 1-3 pitch sport routes - an impressive wall.

    solitude to spare on the first day

    Got out and climbed Shoestring Gully last Thursday. It was not warm, but the ice was great. Apologies for the shitty iPhone quality, I need to get a better camera.



    The ice in NH is in great shape right now. Got out to Frankenstein yesterday and was supposed to go back today, but my partner bailed last minute.

    Castleton Valley. Got stuck for a few hours because of a marathon between camp and Moab/Cane Creek. So we cruised up Castleton Valley and did a portion of the approach to scout for a later trip. Didn't need to edit this one, it was a cool and breezy morning but approached 80F down valley outside Moab.

    Sick shots. Put dates on the calendar for the gunks and Rogers rock, summer isn't looking too bad even if Platty did get 6" of snow today.

    Went on a spring trip to Indian Creek. That place is incredible. There's a tough learning curve, but the pain and suffering just makes sending that much better in the end.

    Splitters for miles.

    Went to check out this spot in Brandon, limitless potential around this cliff. This is the smaller side, but that boulder that calved off like a spire really captured my imagination. Hope to knock it off this summer. Has anyone climbed these? Very little info online. Hope the peregrine falcons stay around manhattan this summer and spare some climbing areas.

    Awesome shots. Unfortunately I'm out for the entire spring and summer following ACL surgery. These threads are going to be the closest I get to any crag for a while so keep up the good work.
