Casual Day Back Home


The Coxing Kill, a.k.a. Split Rock, where a grimy Gunks guide can freshen up.

After three busy days in the Gunks, today’s schedule was casual. Spent the afternoon at the Measles Walls with friends Val and Kevin. They had already made several runs up Run for Rabies, Cracklosis, and Scared for Life when I caught up with them. I took one lap on the last route, then we moved round to the righthand face. I led H1N1 and we took turns TRing it (with one lap up I Am Lesion as well).

Kevin’s feverishly takes his turn on H1N1. 

Before calling it a day, I jogged over to the Upper Measles Wall for quick runs up Hydrophobia and El Muerte Rojo as well.

The shade and a breeze helped make the current heat wave easily tolerable, and although their were swarms of hikers, we had this little crag to ourselves today.


Hey, the Indian Pipestems were just handy.
