After returning to The States I've been keeping things very mellow.  The spring weather in CT has been a mixture of hot, cold, and wet weather.  Without much happening for me with climbing at the moment, I was lucky to head out one day with Ty.  Ty has been trying a project in CT which might be one of the hardest in the North East.  He was very close and then the weather shifted.  Temps went from 50's to the 80's.  We were thinking that anything that might have gone down would have to wait until next fall.  But on this day something changed.  Conditions went from a jungle feeling to a cold windy fall day.  Without any plans we headed out and Ty capitalized on the weather which was a gift from the gods.  No name yet but the grade is in the 8B+ range!!!!

Climbing trips for me follow an up and down trend, mostly related to the weather/conditions. The last month here in Switzerland has been the same, ups and downs, some cool days a lot of warm days. Motivating has been a bit challenging for me. The last two days have been nice with the northern winds picking up.

The prolbem below need no introduction. All I have to say is that I've spent many many years wondering if I would ever climb it.

A week in the Uk

A life long dream of mine was to visit Sheffield. I realized that dream a week ago. Although the weather didn't allow many days out. I had a great time with the people I met. Some day I will go back.
