Fall Fall Fall Fall

This week's temps are delightfully lower than last week, and everybody seems a little slap happy that it feels like fall. Between drooling over the new down jackets and counting down the days until I head to the New River Gorge for a week of sandstone climbing, it feels hard to get much work done. Still, there is much to accomplish on Looking Glass. I have a few goodies on my tic list for cooler weather- so we shall see how it goes....

2nd Pitch of Cornflake Crack- I've never been on the second pitch, but I look at it wistfully every time I pass it. Who doesn't??
Le Pump - I feel like a champ on this route... on toprope. The mix of slopers, balancy moves, and small holds seems to suit me. It is time to give it a go on lead.
Hyperbola- I took a nice whip on this and haven't gotten back on it. Move over copperheads...
The Odyssey- Cold weather prevented us from doing the crux pitch of this route several seasons ago, yet Phil and I think of it whenever we see the duct tape hiding the puncture on his down sweater from the offwidth on the 2nd pitch.
