Slight Access Trail Change

Due to the huge Nor-Easter wash-out,  the fallen tree bridge is gone!  Luckily,  there's another stream crossing 50 yards upstream.

Just walk to the right of the meadow as you leave the parking area,  and overall,  it's about the same distance.

1 Day 4 FAs

17 Mar 10 - For the record,  I am sunburnt and it's not even officially spring.  Dave and I headed up to the 'Good Book' wall and scoped out some lines with super sport potential.  Grade-wise,  it was a steep jump-start to the season, but when you are putting up new routes, the opportunity is too good to pass up!

On the left, you can see Dave on the 5.9/10 vertical wall,  that starts with a few feet of overhang,  on solid red sandstone-like rock.

We did get shut-down on one route,  so if you want to shake off the winter,  and you're climbing strong,  it is waiting there for you!
