NH Rock Sampler

August 2, 2010 § Leave a comment

Torin and I got into a flow this weekend. We decided to climb a variety of routes at different areas which I call a NH Sampler. Saturday at Cannon we started our day by climbing the clean steep finger crack on Union Jack. We rapped off and headed over to the classic Slow and Easy. Slow and Easy is a tricky arching finger and hand crack which spits off many a climber. Now that we were warmed up we headed to Moby Grape. The earlier parties were high on the wall. We had our chance so we motored up Reppy’s. We topped out at 4:30 with many fine crack pitches completed for the day.

Sunday we started climbing on the South Buttress of Whitehorse. Torin had never been there so the Hotter than Hell, Inferno link up was the choice. There was no one around, the temps were warm but not hot, and we had a great mix of crack and face climbing ahead of us. We topped out late morning and descended. We headed over to the slabs to work on refining our footwork. Wavelength to the top was a nice completion to the weekend.

Thanks to Torin for a weekend of good company, great climbing and awesome weather.
