The New River Gorge and Seneca

Well, I'm back after a few days on the road. The New River Gorge was great for a day on Saturday, we actually put up a new route and worked on a few others that I had never been on before. People say that the New is tapped out for new route activity, but I know of at least two dozen new lines that have gone up in the past few months, ranging from 5.8 to 5.13+. There is a very dedicated group of locals up there searching for new rock every day, and there's plenty to choose from.

After that, the weather took a turn for the worse and we had snow non-stop at Seneca. We didn't bring the aid gear (and we didn't feel like climbing in alpine conditions without gloves) so we went caving instead.
