A first blog:

The weather is starting to warm up here in the North East and my focus is starting to shift to the next trip (Red Rocks and Utah!). However the winter here has been glorious. Winter held and produced many 40 degree, sunny, dry days. I've been taking full advantages of this: last Tuesday I was able to climb Roses and Blue Jay (V13). A first of the grade for me.  After two days of previous work, it was coming down to the wire. I blew off work (not a good idea, but proved to be well worth it) and Brayton and I headed up to Great Barrington. It was cold. Perfect. I knew today was it. Either it went down or I would have to wait for a long time for my first...

After a few do-overs, I held the crux move to the lip, and kept it together to the top. Elation!!!

Included a little video of a unique problem at Ice Pond.
