Most of the Poison Ivy and other foliage invading the routes at stover is dead for the season. I'm thinking this might be a good time to get out there and do some cleaning. I think my next target is the upper pitch of Three Buttress, looks like there's a large P.I. bush at the top of it clogging the crack. And i remember Obnoxious Partner had a good bit of P.I. on the top of it over the summer. I've already cleaned some of the cramped thumb face, opening Afterburner and Higher Than I back up.

I'm wondering:

A. anyone have any objections?

B. Any suggestions for routes that could use cleaning?

C. Anyone want to help?

In a couple weeks I'll be on break and would be up for some route cleaning. send me a pm and maybe we can arrange something.

edited to add, just because the ivy is dead doesn't mean the oil is all gone, so i'd still recommend gloves... found that out the hard way when i touched my garage wall that had ivy on it previously and was removed a month before.
