First Day of Spring = First Day of the Season = Cleaning

Met my friend Mindy out at Carver last Saturday, the day it should have been full of climbers, but there were a total of five of us in the woods.

Most things look like shaggy versions of the Incredible Hulk - green, mossy, and rough around the edges. This is the Reggae Recipe Boulder (just below the routes around "Smirk" and "Uncola"):

We cleaned off the Birthday Boulder next to it which holds problems such as "The Birthday Traverse" V5, "Evildoer" V10, "All Smiles" V2 and a couple of others. Most of the problems never got cleaned last year. Set up a couple of flashes and did a mini fashion shoot. Here's one of yours truly on "All Smiles" (the 2nd time; the 1st time by left hand blew and I was able to scrap three knuckles at once).

Remember to check for current access info at the Carver Climbing Club Website.

Shaking Off the Winter

Hello Good Readers,

Sorry it has been awhile since my last post. Since last we spoke the fate of Carver Climbing was in some peril. And even though we have stepped back from the cliff's edge, so to speak, we should continue to use the property as if it could be taken away from us at anytime.

I am meeting with the Carver Climbing Club President this evening and hope to have more info to report soon. There are updates on the Carver Climbing Club site which are good and important.

Until later, but not as later as this post was.
