Rumney +


Had three good days of dry climbing in a row. Did some great routes and problems. It was very cold at night and we awoke to frozen tents in the mornings. Flashes, Onsights, Real Redpoints, Pinkpoints, Hangdogs, Sends, Dabs, and Projects! The Cold drained my 3 camera batteries leaving me with just 8 pics and 1 vid. That is why I cannot show you Awesome pictures of Rumney OR Pawtuckaway...
Rains came in and we took off to explore Pawtuckaway's famed spots. All we had was a NE Bouldering guidebook in a ghost town with almost no street signs anywhere. We were dirt-roading all over for a while. With a little help we finally made it to Round Pond where we met some great giants. Wow. Tons of really good, beautiful granite boulders. Some super highballs and everything else inbetween. Unfortunately almost everything was wet and we gleaned what we could. We were mostly happy to find and see this sweet place to which we will return.
DGROM has a bunch of pics he could share with us too...
