Staying Sane Despite The Rain - Brian B

The weather hasn't much improved in Vermont. I've been climbing indoors easily twice as often as outside. On dry days I've been running up to Smugglers' Notch, often climbing until 8 or 9, or later. My friends GP and Kiel recently added a new line called Touching This Guy or Touching The Sky, something like that. Its awesome and I'm really excited to workout some tall-man beta on it. Jenny and I also recently brought our friends Aaron and Thalia (and Tallula!) to my little home crag growing up in Jamaica VT. There are some really hard lines there and also some easy ones and although their 9-month old Tallula didn't crush the project she did attempt to add a low start.

Its raining out so I'll most likely be hitting the gym again today. Can't wait to see some of my buddies in Boulder in just a few weeks. Later on!

 

I forgot to mention Aaron Nietzel crushes rock climbs. Here is a picture sending High Grade (13a) second go. The same day Aaron sent High Grade Direct (13b), also second try, awesome!

Here is a rock I found after High School, just a 15 minute walk from my front door. I had been climbing and hiking in those woods for six or eight years before stumbling upon it.
