On a possitive note, it is warming up around the southern adirondacks. This Saturday I plan on heading south to get some snow free bouldering in at New Paltz but on Sunday I was planning on heading back up to Nine Corners (I was there yesterday to check out the conditions...about 2-3 ft. of snow still lingering in the forest and boulder field) with a snow rake, a push broom, and a shovel. With nearly 60 degree weather in the forecast and an inch of rain next Tuesday and Wednesday...if I can get most of the standing snow off of the main bouldering set before the rain, we could have a magical early season bouldering session at Nine Corners next weekend with dry boulders, prime sending temps, no bugs, and snow all around us...anyone interested??? I've done this is prior years and trust me, the effort definately pays off. Banta, I'll definately clean off "Gatekeeper" for ya! Sully, "Long Live Legos", "Super Spores"??? Pooler, "Heart Attack Man", "Super Spores", "Popordropolis"?? Any other requests??
Here are some climbing hold sets I worked on for Element Climbing. The owner is really easy to work with and has been really excited to get a steady source of new shapes.
