Buttermilk Falls Ravine 03-07-09

John Mackey leading up a steeper variation on Buttermilk Falls


Cruised up Buttermilk Falls Ravine on Friday with John Mackey and my buddy Paco.  Amazing springtime conditions from start to finish.  Yea the ice was wet but it was so nice out it didn’t matter.  The creek crossing was easy with the tree bridge someone made.  We pretty much soloed each pitch up to the top.  Paco wanted to lead the stellar last pitch.  I’m sure with the warm weather things are going to take a hit but starting next Monday it’s back to being coldish again in the Catskills.  Oh yea, going rock climbing at the Gunks today with a group of clients.  Should be pretty amazing to slip the old rock shoes on.
