Fall finally made it, with excellent climbing conditions in tow! The rock is super tacky, slopers feel like actual holds, and sunlight is refreshing instead of humid. I’ve been climbing all over Vermont and New Hampshire the last three weeks in a row. A few recent sends of note include my first on-sight of a 5.10c (Sesame Street, Rumney) and first highball boulder problem (Standard Direct, V3 – 30 ft, Pawtuckaway).

Nick’s shaky focus made a cool effect on this one!
