Tommy Caldwell is insane. Blowin' it up.
Remix...I've been reading your posts for a while, you're a beast. Super strong.
Around here (and by that I mean within an 8-hour drive) we have granite and shist. Mostly granite. The areas as: Weir, Baldy, Montagne d'Argent, Vald David, Mackenzie Pond, Rumney, Pawtuckawey, the Gunks, Smuggler's Notch, and a few others in Quebec that I'm not so familiar with.
Just got back from the Gunks. One word: moist. Humidity was insane, so I got the focus on exactly what I've said I'd do...high volume, low numbers. Worked V0-3s, focusing on top-outs. Nothing fancy or flashy.
Then I found my new project: it's a V4 (apparent sandbag, but I don't think so) called Andrew's problem. It looks nice. Way more burly than I usually like, but it's burly because of all the gymanstics.
Here's the problem (clearly not me on it)

I do the start differently, no campus, all heel hooks (I just don't like the aesthetic of most campusing...it's a personal thing).
Not sure when/if I'll get back, it's a 7-hour drive to New Paltz...but, the entire town is vegan (essentially), great cafes and shops. Tons of vegan awesomeness.
I've otherwise been staying close to home. We have a short window before the bugs get too bad, and it's nice to support the home team. I'd like to develop some lower-end bouldering in the area...but it's getting heinously buggy, so that may have to wait till the fall.
A note on my finger. So I got injured at the same time as about 4 other people. Two of those people have the exact same injury I had, pulled tendon (where it hurts in the forearm when you apply pressure). So I decided, a straight two weeks of no climbing and eat/sleep/drink well. And what happens, I'm back. Solidly. 100% healed. The others are still out. I'm pretty stoked on that.
Remix, you've got it good where you're at. I'd like to get down that way later this year or early next. No complaining aloud.
