Deck the halls with quickdraws

It's that time of year again; the season for climbing!
Summer has come and brought with it a mixed bag of tropical rainstorms, fry-an-egg-on-your-bonnet heat, and dry refreshing sendage breeze - in vastly unpopular ratios. Making the most of the weather windows is the art, and finding someone silly enough to give you a catch is the science. 
Also wishing everyone a happy xmas and new years, send hard :)
