    NH 48 Dirrettisima

    Update from the source: They got off the road and camped last night. The Kilkenny trail was a blowdown nightmare and awful blisters and some foot issues forced our dirrettisima duo to stay at Appalachia last night, but they hit the last part of the asphalt this morning and are ready for some...

    An iPhone app equivalent to Google Tracks for the Droid

    Hey all - I recently "upgraded" my communications to an iPhone. The only loss I'm feeling at the moment is my Google Tracks App.. That thing was killer. Just wanted to see if any Apple users know of a good tracking app. Here's what Google Tracks can do: While recording tracks, you can...

    Flume Gorge Loop

    Ooh.. yeah that was the section I was referring to. Along the gorge walls.. id say that's a little more than 20 feet..? maybe 100 or so the least. I've honestly haven't hiked the loop in 10 years.. so I don't remember there was a boardwalk in other places. :)

    Flume Gorge Loop

    Just so you know, they remove the boardwalk in winter. In fact I'm shocked they were still up when you went. This ice season is off to a slow start, still need to go to higher elevations to climb... two years ago Flume Gorge was IN over new years weekend!

    Flume Gorge Loop

    Thanks for the pics! I was wondering how things are shaping up in there. Looks like another few weeks though for the river bed and the ice routes to freeze up before I can get in there and climb. Cheers!

    "Is it worth it?" My take on early season ice climbing.

    Ah ok. Thanks for the clarification. Certainly.. the original question is "it" - meaning attempting the climb ice in the early season in northeast and the other "it" being the drive, the time, the energy, etc is doing the first "it". Being there's a good chance conditions will turn you around...

    "Is it worth it?" My take on early season ice climbing.

    Yes, I understand when I post stuff online then I do open myself up for others to chime in. Negative comments or differing opinions don't ruffle my feathers. Most importantly, I have never felt the need to justify what I do. On the other hand, I don't like to simply ignore people's responses...

    "Is it worth it?" My take on early season ice climbing.

    I don't need affirmation or validation for what I do. Nor do I care what others think, honestly. I was just thinking about what I've been hearing lately and made me think about what climbing really means to me. So I thought I'd share that. 'Was it worth it' was a rhetorical question.

    "Is it worth it?" My take on early season ice climbing.

    Over Halloween weekend, I went into Huntington Ravine with Frodo to catch some early season ice. I had watched the weather all week, read the forecast for that weekend, looked at the webcams every morning and talked to a friend of mine I knew was headed in there a day before I was to climb...

    Lodging in Gorham

    Most hotels in Gorham are closed in the winter, which doesn't make much sense. The only place I've stayed at in Gorham in the winter time was the Royalty Inn. Its a shame, really.. The main street area has alot of potential, but North Conway sucks all the tourism up.
