In between recent home wall sessions and grueling hangboard work outs, I have been flipping through some of the media folders I had collected from this past fall; which in hindsight was one of the best autumns (weatherwise) that we have had here in the Adirondacks in the past four years. I know the SAC crew was taking full advantage of it and I am glad that we did. With the weather pattern the way that is has been, it might be a long time until we are out there developing again. Oh how many undone projects I had to walk away from as 2013 was quickly coming to a close. I will be thinking about each and every one of them as I try to improve my strength, stamina, technique and endurance this winter.
Good on ya mates, can't wait to get out there again (and hopefully soon)! Last year we were able to boulder at Great Barrington right into mid-January. Not the case this year...not the case this year.
Some archived photos from late fall, 2013.
Many more posts to come in the next few weeks. I want to actively track my training schedule, progress and results. What better place to do so than right here on the S.A.C. Deet, daht!
This is one sweet ass boulder problem at the Round Pond pull off on Rt. 73 in Keene Valley, near Chapel Pond. I wasn't able to walk away with a send, but had a bunch of fun with Sully and Ron that weekend in Keene. I am anxiously awaiting Spring to head back to these boulders to continue documenting problems for the Adirondack Bouldering Guidebook. Tons of rock and all of it is on State Land!!!
