So its been the better part of a year since I updated this blog. I slowly let it die last spring for a couple of reasons. The main one being that it stopped being fun to blog and instead felt like a chore. I have had a lot of friends express frustration that they missed being able to follow my climbing adventures. So in response I have shifted my online presence into two different venues that I am excited about. The first is Sendage. I left 8a in 2008 because that site stopped being fun. Sendage is the first alternative that was intriguing enough to make me want to try it out. It is essentially an 8a style logbook that links through your Facebook network. The second is Tumblr. My Tumblr started out as an outlet for my non-climbing photography. However, after leaving Blogger I realized I still wanted to post climbing images without feeling a need to write any accompanying text. So please feel free to follow me on those two sites, I will hopefully be updating them regularly.

So after 77 days of not climbing outside, I made my return to real rock! While no particular climbing moment marked it as particularly triumphant, it was everything I needed it to be. The day provided a much needed break from the intensity of my busy daily life and was filled with the comedic, serious, debaucherous, thrilling, and satirical moments, both on and off the rock, that I have only experienced with good friends while climbing.

The weather in Boston continues to be less than ideal for rock scaling. I am going to try and get out on Saturday even if I have to put some work in cleaning off stuff. The snow is still coming down hard, looking like we will get a least a foot of the white stuff today. In other news, my good friend Max Krimmer just started up a blog of his own. He has been crushing it recently both in Southern Colorado and Bishop. Check it out.

New year so I guess the thing to do is a new post. 2010 was an awesome year, although with probably the least climbing in it of the last four years. I finished my senior thesis, graduated from college, got a job, and moved across the country. My plans for post summer 2011 are still up in the air. Maybe Denver, maybe Seattle, maybe somewhere else. We'll see. For now, the goal is to increase my fitness in the gym while the weather is bad. There are still a handful of climbs I would like to do in New England. Until then.
