Hello. My Name is Cam.

Hey Jean, I hope you don't mind me posting on your blog, but I was thinking about how much fun we had this past weekend together in the Gunks and I've been meaning to write something for a while.

When I think of all the places we have been and all the fun climbs we have done, I get all warm and fuzzy inside.  Sometimes I just hangout on your hip all day and enjoy the ride.  I have to admit there are times when I think you have completely forgotten me, lost on the back gear loop (you know, outta sight, outta mind?).  But there have been plenty of times we have worked so well together - whether it be on-sighting a new route in a new location or climbing a line we have done time and time again. It is always fun, isn't it?  I was so psyched to be able to help you out recently on the last pitch of Doubleissima.  We did a lot of hanging out together there at that crux, didn't we?  Truth is I was glad to help. You know, Jean, there was no way in hell I was going to let go of that rock and let you down. We were in it together!

It was so fun watching your friends Louise and Carol climb up High E, City Lights, Yellow Ridge. I wish I could have helped you out on Birdland yesterday, but it was clear you need more little guys than one big guy on that pitch! (wink) - It's okay, I had so much fun anyway.

Hangin' Out on the High E Ledge

So what's next? Oh yeah, that's right - I think you said we'll be doing some climbing in Vermont the next couple of weekends.  Then we head to "The City" and The Cottonwoods soon after. Can't wait to get back out west and get in some tight squeezes with you! Later!
Fondly, Cam
Louise had lots of company up there
