Central Rock Gym - Climbing

Image
Got to introduce several folks of the Metrowest Retirees (or not yet) Ready For Adventure meetup group to some indoor climbing. I organized a meetup at Central Rock Gym in Worcester, MA. and we had a good group to climb. The staff at CRG was fantastic with rental gear and overall gym orientation. It was evident that everyone had a great time. Not only did they learn to climb, but they also improved with every climb - they catch on fast! #borntoclimb #thestokeishigh

Kraft Mountain Loop Trail - Desert Hiking

Image
Kraft Mountain Loop Trail Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Nevada Another perfect day for desert hiking! Today Ronnie and I hiked the 3.1 mile loop around Kraft Mountain. Although the parking lot was filling quickly, we managed to find parking at the Sandstone Road trailhead. We hiked counter-clockwise as the ascent is less gradual in that direction. There were many boulderers arriving and already many in the boulder area. Many hikers out with their dogs were enjoying the day as well. Enjoy some photos taken of our hike. The start of our hike. We hiked counter-clockwise and started our hike (East) from the Sandstone Road trailhead.

Books & Movies Library Management - iPhone App

To all my climbing and hiking bookworm friends! If you’re like me, you love to read and watch movies about all things climbing and hiking! I don’t have a large library of books and movies, but it’s large enough to keep me busy! I found it easy to keep track of all my books and movies using two library management apps called “ BookBuddy Pro ” and “ MovieBuddyPro ” by Kimico, Ltd. Both apps are sleek indeed and it’s easy to use! Cataloging is made easy and I have access to my entire library so I don’t have to worry about buying double copies of books and movies. Both apps pretty much have the same functions so I’m just going to include photos taken from my BookBuddy app to describe its features and functions.       The scanner makes it easy to add books and movies into your library. If for some reason you can’t scan the codes on the back of your book or movie, you can either add the title manually or do an online search. In this case, I personall

Another Classroom

Another Classroom Another Classroom Cathedral Ledge North Conway, NH After bagging the summit of Iron Mountain , I drove over to the top of Cathedral Ledge to visit a new crag that George Hurley found and developed called "Another Classroom". It was really easy to find – just drive to the parking lot at the top of Cathedral Ledge. Just before reaching the parking circle, about 100 feet on the left side of the road, is a wide, flat, white granite slab. From here, follow the trail that leads to the climber's descent trail. Follow the trail to the left and down onto the Thin Air trail. At the bottom where Thin Air goes to the right, take a left and follow a small path along a large gray wall and you will see the "Another Classroom" wall. You can't miss it....it's bolted! ;) **No, I didn't get to climb any of the routes. Another Classroom is the wall facing you as you make your way down this small path along a large gray wall
