Sunny Slab Left - Rock Climbing



Marlow, rock climbing, Monadnock
Leading Sunny Slab Left

Today Nuno and I checked out the climbing crag at the Burns McIntire Forest area in Marlow, NH. There were only two other climbers when we got there and they were super helpful with the local beta. I hadn't climbed here in years but the place pretty much is the same as I remembered it. 

I lead the Sunny Slab Left (5.7) first with no problems, then it was Nuno's turn. Everything was fine until he got above the last clip and placed his hand in the small horizontal crack. Long story short - our climbing was cut short by some pretty aggressive locals!!

Thank you, Nuno, for your photos and your help and support for my "Turning 60 and Climbing About It" project!  With today’s climbing, I’m at  29 leads of 76 pitches! Enjoy some photos taken of our day.

Parking Lot Wall - Rock Climbing



Leading Cafe au Lait (5.6)

Another mellow day of climbing! So nice to be climbing without the humidity, but the place was a bit crowded! :) Iskuhi, Nuno and I headed out to Rumney for a quick climbing day. Also bumped into Kyle who was there climbing with James. And we met Pia, the cutest little crag dog ever! Thank you Iskuhi and Nuno, for your photos and your help and support for my "Turning 60 and Climbing About It" project!  With today’s climbing, I’m at  28 leads of 75 pitches! Enjoy some photos taken of our day.
