My First Trad Lead - Rock Climb

Image
Powder Puff 5.6 Rock Rimmon Manchester, NH My very first Trad Lead climb! It was mellow and super easy as I had top roped and seconded this route very many times. Super stoked! Thanks so much for Jeff for the belay and to Geoff for letting use his Trad rack and giving me beta. Some photos taken of our day! Jeff and Geoff on the same route

Rock Rimmon – Aid Climbing

Rock Rimmon – Aid Climbing A lesson in Aid Climbing ! Pro was set up on the bottom portion of Armpits and I gave Aid Climbing a go. The slab portion is a bit of work, but once I got up to the vertical section, setting up the Aiders and climbing was easier. My first time aid climbing and I never realized how much I would enjoy it! Another form of climbing!

Rock Rimmon – Rock Climbing

S pent several hours climbing Rock Rimmon today. A bit muggy and the ground is trashed with broken glass and litter. But the rock is so good here - easy on the fingers and hands, and I love to climb it! Took some photos with my iPhone…..sorry for the blurries!

Rock Rimmon Evening Climb

What a great time rock climbing Rock Rimmon in the evening! I brought my grand daughter Ann along as she and Kellie's daughter, Cass, like to run around. There was a lot of traffic on the way to the cliff but it was worth it....the climbing is fantastic at Rock Rimmon! Got to climb with new and old friends, I topped off my third climb and got to see a fantastic sunset from the top of the cliff, and in all, gave my inner thighs a beating, LOL! Thanks go to both Beth and Mark for the patient belays! And especially to Kellie for putting together a great meetup and making the eve of my 53rd birthday a memorable one! <3

Rock Rimmon - Spring Rock Climbing

Such a great crag and easy to get to! Rock Rimmon is one of my favorites places to climb! Ropes were set up on the Far Left Slabs and I got to climb both the right and middle Tippy Toe routes. These were easy routes on slabs and great as a warmup. With no brightly colored holds, it was great to be climbing outdoors FINALLY! I tied in on the Tippy Toe Middle anchors so that I could snap some shots of those making their climbs, some for the very first time outdoors! Some photos of the days fun!

Easy to get to. Never expected a lovely piece of rock behind a school playground! But the routes on this Manchester, NH crag are interesting and this particular day, our group were the only climbers!
