Veteran's Day might be our last day of New England rock climbing, so Etha and I headed out to Erving, MA and got in an afternoon of both sport leading and trad leading on the Warm Up Wall! So fun climbing and met a lot of super nice folks at the crag. Special "Mahalo" goes out to Josh who let me borrow his stick clip and showed me how to use it!
My first time Drytooling The pieces of black squares under some of the holds are rubber
Was supposed to get some climbing/leading done in Bolton, VT but rain prevented that. So I headed to MetroRock Station in Essex Junction, VT and Jackie showed me some “Drytooling” moves! It’s was fun, intense and hard...just like crack climbing! I can't wait to try this again, but on some real rock! We also did some climbing with Dry Ice Tools. Unfortunately, we had to cut our climbing session short because the climber's chalk and poor air filtration in this gym triggered my asthma.
Jackie crushing it!
We left the gym and headed to the Outdoor Gear Exchange to ogle over the climbing gear. Their consignment basement is huge! Some old pitons and hexes hanging on the wall. Afterwards we had dinner at the Asiana Noodle Shop.
