Wes Converse getting ready for some mixed action Devils Kitchen, Catskills

Went back into the Devil’s Kitchen on Friday.  Things have gotten bigger since I was there on the 4th.  Wes lead the Smear WI 4+ and I did the first corner WI 3+/4.  Brendan and I also dipped around the corner and climbed the right side of Bridal Vail Falls.  The middle of the route is open with a lot of water running though it.  The right side climbed at WI 2 with interesting features being created from the spray.  The creeks have gotten better to walk on since the 4th as well.  We are going to get a nice winter storm tonight with 5-10 inches expected.  With the cold temps and the snow January is shaping up to be really good.
