Cormier-Magness 2017 - Multi Pitch Summer Rock Climb
Belaying Tom up pitch 2 - Wheat Thin Arete
Trad, 8 Pitches, 1150 feet
North Conway, NH
Blueberries, run-outs and slabs, oh my! My favorite place to climb is the run-out slabs of Whitehorse Ledge. When we climbed Cormier-Magness late last summer, I didn't lead P5 & P6 like it should have been lead. So today Sean, Tom and I went back to "re-do" the Cormier-Magness route. I took P1, P2, P5 & P6. Sean took P3 & P4. And 16-year old Tom lead the last two pitches, P7 & P8. Took up way more gear than was needed. But it was a good day, and the wild blueberries were delicious. This route (MP) is fun and gorgeous - definitely my favorite route on The Slabs! And thank you Chris Magness for the additional beta! :)
