First trip to the New as an almost local

by Tom Markiewicz on August 4, 2005

As I mentioned in my last post, I recently moved to Blacksburg, Virginia. Last weekend I hit the New for a quick day trip. The nice part about being only 1.5 hours away is I feel a little more relaxed there and can enjoy the climbing more. When I’d make the 5.5 hour trip from Northern Virginia, I really felt the pressure of trying to get as much climbing done in a weekend as possible. Now, being so close, if the weather is marginal I can still go and not be overly disappointed if I get rained out. And as anyone who has climbed at the New knows, it rains quite often.

We got some nice climbing in Saturday at Bubba City. Starting at Headless Wall we moved our way up (or down?) the cliff line and finished up at Bubba Buttress. Probably the most enjoyable climb of the day was Chicks in the Woods (11a) which is either on Ames Wall or Central Bubba (don’t have my guidebook with me). I won’t give any beta here, but it was a very technical face climb with a couple of very unique moves on it. Highly recommended route!

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. There has to be a way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!

    I plan on starting a blog and would eventually like to bring in ad revenue, should I start out on a free website or should I buy a domain?.

    I have a lot of bookmarked websites part of Blogspot that I check daily for updates, but it is so annoying to click through a list. If I make an account is there some sort of feature where I can see new posts on the websites? (Sort of like Subscriptions on Xanga)?.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But think about if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Wonderful blog!
