Crack Me Up (They Died Laughing)

Only time for a quick post now, to be embellished when time permits.  The weather was perfect for a weekend of crack climbing in North Conway.  Saturday with Rosie, Louise and Annie - we met Matt Ritter and climbed the cracks at the North End of Cathedral Ledge (North Conway, NH) all day.  Sunday Annie and I climbed Toe Crack which on that day was aptly renamed "Toad Crack" as I encountered a camouflaged toad in a horizontal crack about 1/3 of the way up!  Here are a couple of pics of They Died Laughing, probably one of the best 5.9 cracks in the area.
