I read that totally in the gutter and am refraining from comment
I missed that.

So Doc sticks his tubesteak in unconscious people. That sounds like him. Though I thought he liked the dead ones?

It was a rough few hours. But the cable guy came and fixed the cut up cable.
Did you have to pay to get it fixed?

Or did you just bury it and say you didn't know what was wrong so they would just run a new cable and think a gopher did it somewhere along the run.

No charge.

You need to cultivate a subman.

A subman would be eager to go and belay you on your projects there and climb the bottoms of them. And hope to someday be as good as you.

Too busy and tired for ground up right now. Weekend was great. Truck is nice and muddy... breaks are well, grinding (see muddy comment).. steering, well 45 km of trails will do things to your steering.

Got a good afternoon of climbing in too.

I'm out of Fireball.

Huh..

As in
-I'm not reading all teh posts of on the pages since I left work Thursday till today.

-4wheeling in the 4Runner left it muddy with worn out breaks, but was hella fun. 45km of off-road trails will leave you with some wrench turning after a long weekend.

-went climbing in there too.

-Fireball is a Cinnamon Corn Whiskey

And WTF is with Americans and the word "huh" ?

What does 12a + 12b + ~20degrees= ?

There is kinda a rest at some jugs between the two, but it is kinda steep at that part so most of the weight is still on your arms so its tough to get a great recovery.

New Root? I'd say 12b, but I'm probably the least qualified to do so.

Are you talking two boulder problems with that rest in between? If it's not much of a rest like you say, maybe .12c.

Who am I kidding, I have no friggin clue...
Its a link up. The first crux is right off the ground then you go into the crux of the 12b. You get some pretty good jugs between the two but it isn't the best rest and you can never really fully shake the pump. You go into the second crux way more pumped than if you do the normal start.

It doesn't really matter to much. Its just another route to add into the rotation. Its just kinda nice to have a gage on my training.


I was supposed to go someplace different today and get on some new routes, but it is raining.Mad I feel like I'm in pretty good shape right now so I was excited to go rip it up.
I wouldn't give it a full 12c rating maybe b/c
Call it 5.12b+
Confuse the shit out of everyone.
The french rating system actually works better for sport climbing grades.

humm, u r all rong.... cept the part about french grades more accurately discribing the the difficulty of sport routes.

So, if you are a sprayer, you would have to call it 13a. Thats what jt512 would grade it. Cuz thats what he does to all of my routes. By the fact that you are hear talking about grades, leads me to believe.... spray!!!1

Personally, I've got to figure that the 12a and the 12b are both over rated by a grade to a grade and a half. So I would rate the link up 7a+ and let the posers whine. I'd have to send it to be sure, but it is likely a pretty gud guess. Nothing worse than having real guys walk your soft grades and down rating them...
Didn't Tom Lindner down rate The Action to 12d?

I was giving chossy the benifit of the doubt that he wasn't a full on poser by calling it 7a+. Personally I like to 'simplify' things... course people say I like to sandbag but they would be rong.
You're also the guy who wants to call the $20 Dollar Hooker 6c

Is anyone good at math? I have a question. Art would probably know this one.


What does 12a + 12b + ~20degrees= ?

There is kinda a rest at some jugs between the two, but it is kinda steep at that part so most of the weight is still on your arms so its tough to get a great recovery.

New Root? I'd say 12b, but I'm probably the least qualified to do so.

Are you talking two boulder problems with that rest in between? If it's not much of a rest like you say, maybe .12c.

Who am I kidding, I have no friggin clue...
Its a link up. The first crux is right off the ground then you go into the crux of the 12b. You get some pretty good jugs between the two but it isn't the best rest and you can never really fully shake the pump. You go into the second crux way more pumped than if you do the normal start.

It doesn't really matter to much. Its just another route to add into the rotation. Its just kinda nice to have a gage on my training.


I was supposed to go someplace different today and get on some new routes, but it is raining.Mad I feel like I'm in pretty good shape right now so I was excited to go rip it up.

You could probably get away with .12c, I'm guessing.

That's good that you are in good shape right now, it's still so early. I haven't climbed much at all the last 2 weeks, hopefully I won't have lost too much.

Looking forward to next weekend at Seneca to finish up my ticklist (hopefully). I really, really hope the weather is nice, it will be the last time I climb there for who knows how long.
yore rong!
Its not good that I'm in pretty good shape?
No I meant Marco is wrong about 12c being a good rating for the route

Maybe I should have said "Art, you are just and fair, and we will call it 12b."?
You mean 7b right?

In other news I was at Canadian Tire at lunch time pricing out some stuff, and walking back to my truck...


W T F !


Some punk was reafing on the back window to try and break in to steal my tool bag! Had my cell phone in my hand to call the cops, but fuck he was going at it and of all the people in the parking lot not a dam one of them was doing anything! Nothing! Not so much as a "hey buddy what gives?"! Ran up behind him and checked him into the tailgate. The fucker took a swing at me, so I knocked him the f*ck out! Out cold! One hit! Right the f*ck out! Gave my contact info to the security guy who said he'd handle everything with the cops... expecting a call tonight to give a statement. Security dude claims it happens more ofthen that you'd think in that parking lot. To say the least I'm still a little bit jacked right now.




My hand is a wee bit sore right now.

If I wasn't at work I'd be drinking right about now.

Damn. Good thing you came out when you did. You know what would be really shitty? If he turned around and tried to charge you with assault or laid a law suit on you for decking him. Aholes like that are stupid and think they can.

Too many witnesses for that. A few of them gave their contact info to security dude too. It's pretty clear cut. He was breaking in, I checked him he swung THEN I swung, shitty thing for him... he missed, I didn't. All eyes were on the acting right from the moment I checked him into the tailgate to pin him.

Yeah, I've got it covered pretty good. I've been through that part of the leagal system before when I got jumped by a few guys a number of years ago, so I know what to expect. As far as I can tell there's noting that punk can do to me.

Could do that, mind you I'd be happy if it was only window hinges.... 1st Gen 4Runner, back window roles down into the tailgate. I got it back up, but I'll have to pull the top of the tailgate off to re-set the window in the tracks. Pain in the ass job, but at least it's relatively easy

C'mon, last time I was in the States we passed at least 5 signs which read "No Shooting. School Zone". In Vagas I wasn't even out of the airport for 1/2 an hour before I saw someone getting their car stolen at gun point.

Too many witnesses for that. A few of them gave their contact info to security dude too. It's pretty clear cut. He was breaking in, I checked him he swung THEN I swung, shitty thing for him... he missed, I didn't. All eyes were on the acting right from the moment I checked him into the tailgate to pin him.
sounds like you got it covered. Bet you can't wait to get home for that drink!

Yeah, I've got it covered pretty good. I've been through that part of the leagal system before when I got jumped by a few guys a number of years ago, so I know what to expect. As far as I can tell there's noting that punk can do to me.

I've finally stopped vibrating! Still, can't wait for that beer when I get home.

Canadia sounds the dangerous.

C'mon, last time I was in the States we passed at least 5 signs which read "No Shooting. School Zone". In Vagas I wasn't even out of the airport for 1/2 an hour before I saw someone getting their car stolen at gun point.


I'll take my chances in tEH Frozen Wastelands.
We kin own gunz down hea in the Unityied States. Means we liable to blow a carjacker's melon off.

What does 12a + 12b + ~20degrees= ?

There is kinda a rest at some jugs between the two, but it is kinda steep at that part so most of the weight is still on your arms so its tough to get a great recovery.

New Root? I'd say 12b, but I'm probably the least qualified to do so.

Are you talking two boulder problems with that rest in between? If it's not much of a rest like you say, maybe .12c.

Who am I kidding, I have no friggin clue...
Its a link up. The first crux is right off the ground then you go into the crux of the 12b. You get some pretty good jugs between the two but it isn't the best rest and you can never really fully shake the pump. You go into the second crux way more pumped than if you do the normal start.

It doesn't really matter to much. Its just another route to add into the rotation. Its just kinda nice to have a gage on my training.


I was supposed to go someplace different today and get on some new routes, but it is raining.Mad I feel like I'm in pretty good shape right now so I was excited to go rip it up.

You could probably get away with .12c, I'm guessing.

That's good that you are in good shape right now, it's still so early. I haven't climbed much at all the last 2 weeks, hopefully I won't have lost too much.

Looking forward to next weekend at Seneca to finish up my ticklist (hopefully). I really, really hope the weather is nice, it will be the last time I climb there for who knows how long.
yore rong!
Its not good that I'm in pretty good shape?
No I meant Marco is wrong about 12c being a good rating for the route

I tried.

Call it 5.12b+
Confuse the shit out of everyone.
The french rating system actually works better for sport climbing grades.

humm, u r all rong.... cept the part about french grades more accurately discribing the the difficulty of sport routes.

So, if you are a sprayer, you would have to call it 13a. Thats what jt512 would grade it. Cuz thats what he does to all of my routes. By the fact that you are hear talking about grades, leads me to believe.... spray!!!1

Personally, I've got to figure that the 12a and the 12b are both over rated by a grade to a grade and a half. So I would rate the link up 7a+ and let the posers whine. I'd have to send it to be sure, but it is likely a pretty gud guess. Nothing worse than having real guys walk your soft grades and down rating them...
Didn't Tom Lindner down rate The Action to 12d?
Ouch.

He isn't really even a real guy. He had to live vicariously through his son.

Well, got the call from the cops. The officer was real cool about it. Said I probably shouldn't have hit the guy, but he could understand how one would react that way. Said it sounded pretty clear cut and that he didn't expect any hassle or trouble on my end with it. Going in after work to give my statement.

Oh, and he said the guy's not going to be trying to pull any asault BS. Said that the punk (well, the officer said "gentleman") seems to be of the oppinion that he got caught doing something that he shouldn't have.

Sure.
It doesn't really matter what Art or anyone else really thinks it is. Its just for my log so I can track my progress and or stagnation. I could call it 13a and the only person I would be fooling would be me. I could likewise call it 7a+ and feel like my climbing is stagnating in this hell hole.

Hopefully we will get out to the closed place closer to home midweeks this summer. The next closest place with routes I'd want to do is 3+ hours away. Which is tough when you only have one day and gas is $5 a gallon.Unsure

Maybe I should have said "Art, you are just and fair, but we will call it 12c and you'll like it."?

Sure.
It doesn't really matter what Art or anyone else really thinks it is. Its just for my log so I can track my progress and or stagnation. I could call it 13a and the only person I would be fooling would be me. I could likewise call it 7a+ and feel like my climbing is stagnating in this hell hole.

Hopefully we will get out to the closed place closer to home midweeks this summer. The next closest place with routes I'd want to do is 3+ hours away. Which is tough when you only have one day and gas is $5 a gallon.Unsure
Well in that case rate it by the single hardest move on the route.

Also, that's kinda what you get for shopping Crappy Tire.Tongue

Wasn't he shopping at a placed called Canada Tire? But you substituted the word Canada for Crappy. Hmmmm...
Everyone calls it Crappy Tire. Its because 95% of the stuff they sell is junk from China. The only thing Canadian about that company is that there seems to be one on every corner.

Well, got the call from the cops. The officer was real cool about it. Said I probably shouldn't have hit the guy, but he could understand how one would react that way.

Oh, and he said the guy's not going to be trying to pull any asault BS. Said that the punk (well, the officer said "gentleman") seems to be of the oppinion that he got caught doing something that he shouldn't have.

So you should have slapped him on the wrist?

The legal system will likely give him little more that a slap on the wrist, but I betcha his heads still ringing! And I bet he'll thing twice before trying that again in the near future...




...I say near future as he is most obviously a dumb ass. WTF, only a dumb ass has enough stupidity to actually try and break into what is obviously a Redneck's mud covered 4x4 on a Tuesday after the May 24?

What if it is a series of hard moves?

And would you rate it as if you rapped down to the move and tried it completely fresh or how it feels with a bit of a pump?

I'm just going to call it M9+.

None of my difficult routes have ever been down rated, that I know of. I have, however, seen the toll it takes on others when their difficult routes have been down rated. Generally my difficult routes get called sandbags.... and I'm OK with that. It's kinda a shame you live in a long forgotten, backwater, corner of the climbing community, cuz I would have been happy to come out, walk your hard routes and down rated them for you.

If I wanted his opinion I'd point to him with my middle finger.

Well it was naive of you to think I wasn't reading and I figured when you started spraying about grades, that was an invitation to state my opinion... Sorry you didn't like what I said.

What does 12a + 12b + ~20degrees= ?

There is kinda a rest at some jugs between the two, but it is kinda steep at that part so most of the weight is still on your arms so its tough to get a great recovery.

New Root? I'd say 12b, but I'm probably the least qualified to do so.

Are you talking two boulder problems with that rest in between? If it's not much of a rest like you say, maybe .12c.

Who am I kidding, I have no friggin clue...
Its a link up. The first crux is right off the ground then you go into the crux of the 12b. You get some pretty good jugs between the two but it isn't the best rest and you can never really fully shake the pump. You go into the second crux way more pumped than if you do the normal start.

It doesn't really matter to much. Its just another route to add into the rotation. Its just kinda nice to have a gage on my training.


I was supposed to go someplace different today and get on some new routes, but it is raining.Mad I feel like I'm in pretty good shape right now so I was excited to go rip it up.
I wouldn't give it a full 12c rating maybe b/c
Call it 5.12b+
Confuse the shit out of everyone.
The french rating system actually works better for sport climbing grades.

humm, u r all rong.... cept the part about french grades more accurately discribing the the difficulty of sport routes.

So, if you are a sprayer, you would have to call it 13a. Thats what jt512 would grade it. Cuz thats what he does to all of my routes. By the fact that you are hear talking about grades, leads me to believe.... spray!!!1

Personally, I've got to figure that the 12a and the 12b are both over rated by a grade to a grade and a half. So I would rate the link up 7a+ and let the posers whine. I'd have to send it to be sure, but it is likely a pretty gud guess. Nothing worse than having real guys walk your soft grades and down rating them...
Didn't Tom Lindner down rate The Action to 12d?

u r rong. I rated The Action 12d on the fa. Troy upgraded it to 13a in his guide without even trying the route. Tom Linder as well as several others, confirmed the 13a grade.

I hear ya on gas. I'm getting concerned about my trip. I suppose the rising gas costs will be somewhat offset by the fact that I won't be paying rent, though.

Try to spend your time climbing at places that are free (both the climbing and the camping).

simplify things. Call it .11+ Tongue

I was giving chossy the benifit of the doubt that he wasn't a full on poser by calling it 7a+. Personally I like to 'simplify' things... course people say I like to sandbag but they would be rong.
You're also the guy who wants to call the $20 Dollar Hooker 6c

The $20 Hooker won't get down rated at 6c....

He isn't really even a real guy. He had to live vicariously through his son.

HAHA!!!1 Now that's some funny sh1t... just don't say it to his face, cuz he one angry guy. Last time I saw Tom, he gave me a ration of shit cuz I didn't want to climb with him. I mentioned that sometimes he is just no fun to hang out with. He completly flipped out. Started yelling at me at the top of his lungs, I was only about two feet from him.... what a fuking scene.

Just wait till you read Trippers opinion.Laugh

Maybe I should have said "Art, you are just and fair, but we will call it 12c and you'll like it."?

Sure.
It doesn't really matter what Art or anyone else really thinks it is. Its just for my log so I can track my progress and or stagnation. I could call it 13a and the only person I would be fooling would be me. I could likewise call it 7a+ and feel like my climbing is stagnating in this hell hole.

Hopefully we will get out to the closed place closer to home midweeks this summer. The next closest place with routes I'd want to do is 3+ hours away. Which is tough when you only have one day and gas is $5 a gallon.Unsure

I hear ya on gas. I'm getting concerned about my trip. I suppose the rising gas costs will be somewhat offset by the fact that I won't be paying rent, though.
Try to spend your time climbing at places that are free (both the climbing and the camping).
(i.e. not eldo)

Or the Gunkage.

Honestly, I'd have a hard time not visiting a couple of higher cost areas on a road trip. I think the big thing is to pick and choose which ones to go to.

Maybe get a Golden Eagle pass (or whatever they call them now) so I can spend some time in Red Rocks (bivy in the dessert) and Devils Tower and maybe a couple of other places. I could spend a long time climbing at the Gunks I think, but for a $135 family pass I'd have to spend a LONG time there to justify it.

Hueco is another area that I'd like to go back to. You could sleep out in the dessert, but you'd still have to get a park pass. Again, on a really long trip it might not be worth it.

Yeah, I ordered one of the national park passes (I also forget what they are called...I think it's America the Beautiful or something ghey like that.Laugh). It will help with getting around.

I'm already planning on Red Rocks. The Valley is also a big one. Devil's Tower is looking more and more appealing. Are the Needles free?

Is anyone good at math? I have a question. Art would probably know this one.


What does 12a + 12b + ~20degrees= ?

There is kinda a rest at some jugs between the two, but it is kinda steep at that part so most of the weight is still on your arms so its tough to get a great recovery.

New Root? I'd say 12b, but I'm probably the least qualified to do so.

Are you talking two boulder problems with that rest in between? If it's not much of a rest like you say, maybe .12c.

Who am I kidding, I have no friggin clue...
Its a link up. The first crux is right off the ground then you go into the crux of the 12b. You get some pretty good jugs between the two but it isn't the best rest and you can never really fully shake the pump. You go into the second crux way more pumped than if you do the normal start.

It doesn't really matter to much. Its just another route to add into the rotation. Its just kinda nice to have a gage on my training.


I was supposed to go someplace different today and get on some new routes, but it is raining.Mad I feel like I'm in pretty good shape right now so I was excited to go rip it up.
I wouldn't give it a full 12c rating maybe b/c
Call it 5.12b+
Confuse the shit out of everyone.
The french rating system actually works better for sport climbing grades.

humm, u r all rong.... cept the part about french grades more accurately discribing the the difficulty of sport routes.

So, if you are a sprayer, you would have to call it 13a. Thats what jt512 would grade it. Cuz thats what he does to all of my routes. By the fact that you are hear talking about grades, leads me to believe.... spray!!!1

Personally, I've got to figure that the 12a and the 12b are both over rated by a grade to a grade and a half. So I would rate the link up 7a+ and let the posers whine. I'd have to send it to be sure, but it is likely a pretty gud guess. Nothing worse than having real guys walk your soft grades and down rating them...
simplify things. Call it .11+ Tongue

I was giving chossy the benifit of the doubt that he wasn't a full on poser by calling it 7a+. Personally I like to 'simplify' things... course people say I like to sandbag but they would be rong.
You're also the guy who wants to call the $20 Dollar Hooker 6c

The $20 Hooker won't get down rated at 6c....
well in that case you should have left espresso at 5.9+ instead of letting people call it 10c...

None of my difficult routes have ever been down rated, that I know of. I have, however, seen the toll it takes on others when their difficult routes have been down rated. Generally my difficult routes get called sandbags.... and I'm OK with that. It's kinda a shame you live in a long forgotten, backwater, corner of the climbing community, cuz I would have been happy to come out, walk your hard routes and down rated them for you.
Feel free to down rate my mixed routes at the local chosspile.

Just wait till you read Trippers opinion.Laugh

Maybe I should have said "Art, you are just and fair, but we will call it 12c and you'll like it."?

Sure.
It doesn't really matter what Art or anyone else really thinks it is. Its just for my log so I can track my progress and or stagnation. I could call it 13a and the only person I would be fooling would be me. I could likewise call it 7a+ and feel like my climbing is stagnating in this hell hole.

Hopefully we will get out to the closed place closer to home midweeks this summer. The next closest place with routes I'd want to do is 3+ hours away. Which is tough when you only have one day and gas is $5 a gallon.Unsure


I know that place fairly well. Last time I was there I took steve before he went to New York. You know how close to me that is?

I'm already planning on Red Rocks. The Valley is also a big one. Devil's Tower is looking more and more appealing. Are the Needles free?

To use it at RR it needs to have the extra part added to the NPS pass. I think it was $15 more and it was called the golden eagle pass a few years ago.

If you have the time you can usually figure out ways to work the system. I spent two weeks climbing at RR and only paid $5 for getting in to climb and camping combined.

Devils Tower used to seem expensive until I met Frank and started staying at his place for cheep or in exchange for doing a little work. The Tower is in walking distance too so you don't need to drive.

Hueco it is $40 or something for a annual pass and if you do work for Rob you can stay there for free I think.

The SD Needles or the Cali Needles? In SD part of them are free. Only the stuff in Custer STPK you need to pay. But that is anything along the Needles Hwy., Sylavan Lake, and the Cathedral Spires. There is free camping on FS land.

Finding places where you can walk from camp to crag will save you a ton of money on gas.

Being from out east I think spending time at the Gunks would be a little stupid if that will be weekend tripable in the future for you. But as an example you could still climb there and have it be economical. The pass is expensive at first, but once you are there you can park your car and camp for free.

Paying for camping and climbing while driving to the crag everyday will kill your budget. But one of them is very workable.

The combined all that stuff into one pass in 04 or 06...I know what you're talking about (I think). The new system is meant to be comprehensive and cover everything.

How much is it to climb at Devil's Tower? I know you've mentioned Frank before, he's sort of the local guy there, correct?

I'm probably going to try to spend a minimum of two weeks at each place I visit to make the travel worth it. I was planning for extra time in Yosemite, but who knows. Getting a truck is going to be part of the crux of it; it will be easy to just sleep in the back, but if I have to pitch a tent all the time, I'm thinking that will bring in more fees. Except for in a place like the valley where sleeping in your vehicle is "not allowed." I need an even trade for my car, though, as I don't want getting a new vehicle chipping away at my trip savings. And the car mileage is better, undoubtedly. What would you do?

I hope I can figure things out in terms of "working the system",.. with gas being what it is and all. Finding folks to share sites with, etc. It probably becomes clearer once you are out there as to how things work, I guess.

I'm not planning on climbing at the Gunks, I was just using that as an example. Aside from park fees, I'm suprised at all the places that charge you to climb. I guess Eldo is one as well, according to doc.

This will be an interesting trip at any rate. When I was in Europe I made it 3 months for relatively cheap, we'll see what happens here.

Yeah Eldo is $5 a day and there is no camping within a bit. Definately no free camping.

Devils Tower is totally worth it. The entrance is included in the old Golden Eagle pass. To camp in the park its something like $10/day, but you could check out Frank's place.

I would think if you could get an even trade on your car a small truck would be worth it. You might still want to set up a tent for more living space in areas its easy to do, but its hard to do overnight parking in at car.

A place like Red Rocks its not bad to find places to do overnight parking on some of the back roads, but its nice to be in the campground to find partners. Both Nathan and I have found it easy to share camping with people who don't mind covering your half when you're on a road trip. I think he's paid nothing when he was there for longer, I only spent maybe $20 for over 3 weeks.

You should plan on a minimum of 2 weeks per location, but be flexible to move if things start to suck. I'd also assume you'll be staying for more than 2 weeks at place that are good. Its easy to spend 3 - 4 weeks at a place if things are going well.

Being flexible is key.

Their new system seems counter intuitive to their current plan of trying to charge extra fees for everything. I suppose it is a way of hiking the price the average person pays, making people pay for stuff they will never use.



DT is free once you sneak in after the gatehouse closes. Camping is the expensive part. I forget what they charge you at the park campground. The KOA outside the park is way more expensive. Frank is generally cool with climbers setting up a tent on his property and doesn't charge per say. He does ask for whatever you would like to donate. He has a outdoor bathroom with a shower you can use. Only the shower is outside, the rest is kinda like an outhouse, but with a flush toilet and sink. Depending on how busy it is there you may be able to use some of the other stuff around his place.

When I have paid him for staying I normally give him what the Park CG charges. But he has always fed me and let me have run of the common areas of the house.




Something you can sleep in is nice, but unless you can get an even trade it probably wouldn't be worth it. If you do get a truck you will need to get it set up for sleeping in. Build a platform and get good shades for the windows so if you are parked in a parking lot people won't see you sleeping in there. In a pinch I have slept a lot of places I wasn't allowed to in the back of my truck.

I have traveled both in a car and truck. My longest trip was actually out of a car. The nicest part about a truck is when driving someplace you can stop almost anywhere and sleep. It is more of a convenience than a necessity. There aren't that many times that I have been at a climbing area where I bivied in my truck that I couldn't have set up a tent. It does make it easier to dodge campground fees though. That works best if you have two people since you can have the self register stuff all filled out and then each person can blame the other for not depositing the envelope after arriving late, if you get caught before you can roll out in the morning. Even if nobody comes around asking why you haven't paid I wouldn't suggest doing that more than once per campground. I think Bec has done similar at RR and JT with a car. Like I said before, you just need to learn how to work the system.

Honestly, I haven't hit many of the "classic" areas because they cost so much money. Not to mention they are generally over crowded. I tend to favor places on Forest Service land with free camping and no entrance fees. Even a lot of those places are becoming pay for play.Unsure

Are you planning on going to Cochise Stronghold? I think you can camp and climb for free there. And there is everything from bouldering to multi pitched routes on granite. The guidebook is tough to get you hands on though.

Being flexible is key. And if you have a small tent of truck finding a flexible girl is also key.

If you are having a good time somewhere don't be afraid to spend extra time there. Same with moving on if things aren't clicking. I have spent weeks at places that I thought I would only spend a couple days, and moved on after only a day at places I thought I would spend weeks.

Sometimes you can find good people to climb with and kinda move around with them from place to place.

Also, if you have room you can pick up climbers without cars and have them help pay for gas. Just be careful who you are picking up and taking near the borders since they do have drug checkpoints (along I-10 especially) from time to time in TX, NM and AZ. You don't want to be stuck with some guy you just met with a bunch of weed in his backpack if your car gets searched.

Also, when going into California on I-10 don't tell them you have or don't take fresh produce unless it is all marked product of the US. They will take it.

Yes, I have two copies. Two different editions. I might be persuaded to lend on out with a hefty deposit. Or let you photo copy the parts you want. Not that you would want to stop in this wasteland.

Well It is going to be beautiful all weekend here too. But today it is chance of rain, and we decided to stay local as opposed to going to the gunks today due to that fact.
Not sure what is on for this weekend, since i have to get a physical for work on friday. We would have left already had that not been the case.

And if you are stoked about a grade III, you need to get out more. Grade III ought to take 2-3 hours. Leaves time for moar climbing.

I'm already planning on Red Rocks. The Valley is also a big one. Devil's Tower is looking more and more appealing. Are the Needles free?

To use it at RR it needs to have the extra part added to the NPS pass. I think it was $15 more and it was called the golden eagle pass a few years ago.

If you have the time you can usually figure out ways to work the system. I spent two weeks climbing at RR and only paid $5 for getting in to climb and camping combined.

Devils Tower used to seem expensive until I met Frank and started staying at his place for cheep or in exchange for doing a little work. The Tower is in walking distance too so you don't need to drive.

Hueco it is $40 or something for a annual pass and if you do work for Rob you can stay there for free I think.

The SD Needles or the Cali Needles? In SD part of them are free. Only the stuff in Custer STPK you need to pay. But that is anything along the Needles Hwy., Sylavan Lake, and the Cathedral Spires. There is free camping on FS land.

Finding places where you can walk from camp to crag will save you a ton of money on gas.

Being from out east I think spending time at the Gunks would be a little stupid if that will be weekend tripable in the future for you. But as an example you could still climb there and have it be economical. The pass is expensive at first, but once you are there you can park your car and camp for free.

Paying for camping and climbing while driving to the crag everyday will kill your budget. But one of them is very workable.

The combined all that stuff into one pass in 04 or 06...I know what you're talking about (I think). The new system is meant to be comprehensive and cover everything.

How much is it to climb at Devil's Tower? I know you've mentioned Frank before, he's sort of the local guy there, correct?

I'm probably going to try to spend a minimum of two weeks at each place I visit to make the travel worth it. I was planning for extra time in Yosemite, but who knows. Getting a truck is going to be part of the crux of it; it will be easy to just sleep in the back, but if I have to pitch a tent all the time, I'm thinking that will bring in more fees. Except for in a place like the valley where sleeping in your vehicle is "not allowed." I need an even trade for my car, though, as I don't want getting a new vehicle chipping away at my trip savings. And the car mileage is better, undoubtedly. What would you do?

I hope I can figure things out in terms of "working the system",.. with gas being what it is and all. Finding folks to share sites with, etc. It probably becomes clearer once you are out there as to how things work, I guess.

I'm not planning on climbing at the Gunks, I was just using that as an example. Aside from park fees, I'm suprised at all the places that charge you to climb. I guess Eldo is one as well, according to doc.

This will be an interesting trip at any rate. When I was in Europe I made it 3 months for relatively cheap, we'll see what happens here.

Yeah Eldo is $5 a day and there is no camping within a bit. Definately no free camping.

That is the suck.

Devils Tower is totally worth it. The entrance is included in the old Golden Eagle pass. To camp in the park its something like $10/day, but you could check out Frank's place.

I would think if you could get an even trade on your car a small truck would be worth it. You might still want to set up a tent for more living space in areas its easy to do, but its hard to do overnight parking in at car.

A place like Red Rocks its not bad to find places to do overnight parking on some of the back roads, but its nice to be in the campground to find partners. Both Nathan and I have found it easy to share camping with people who don't mind covering your half when you're on a road trip. I think he's paid nothing when he was there for longer, I only spent maybe $20 for over 3 weeks.

You should plan on a minimum of 2 weeks per location, but be flexible to move if things start to suck. I'd also assume you'll be staying for more than 2 weeks at place that are good. Its easy to spend 3 - 4 weeks at a place if things are going well.

Being flexible is key.

Yeah, the Towah looks awesome. I'm betting on the fact that because gas is going up, trucks and the like aren't in great demand, whereas a car like mine is. We'll see. I'd love to have a small, low power truck for the reasons you mentioned, i.e. living space, etc.

Thanks for the camping info, sounds like most people are pretty cool. I'm planning on being pretty flexible. That is a big part of the reason I'm going solo; I don't have to make plans with anyone. Being able to do whatever I want will be nice. When I was in Europe, I saw so many people who were ready to kill their travel buddy after spending 2-3 months living and coordinating their lives with another person 24 hours/day.

Their new system seems counter intuitive to their current plan of trying to charge extra fees for everything. I suppose it is a way of hiking the price the average person pays, making people pay for stuff they will never use.



DT is free once you sneak in after the gatehouse closes. Camping is the expensive part. I forget what they charge you at the park campground. The KOA outside the park is way more expensive. Frank is generally cool with climbers setting up a tent on his property and doesn't charge per say. He does ask for whatever you would like to donate. He has a outdoor bathroom with a shower you can use. Only the shower is outside, the rest is kinda like an outhouse, but with a flush toilet and sink. Depending on how busy it is there you may be able to use some of the other stuff around his place.

When I have paid him for staying I normally give him what the Park CG charges. But he has always fed me and let me have run of the common areas of the house.




Something you can sleep in is nice, but unless you can get an even trade it probably wouldn't be worth it. If you do get a truck you will need to get it set up for sleeping in. Build a platform and get good shades for the windows so if you are parked in a parking lot people won't see you sleeping in there. In a pinch I have slept a lot of places I wasn't allowed to in the back of my truck.

I have traveled both in a car and truck. My longest trip was actually out of a car. The nicest part about a truck is when driving someplace you can stop almost anywhere and sleep. It is more of a convenience than a necessity. There aren't that many times that I have been at a climbing area where I bivied in my truck that I couldn't have set up a tent. It does make it easier to dodge campground fees though. That works best if you have two people since you can have the self register stuff all filled out and then each person can blame the other for not depositing the envelope after arriving late, if you get caught before you can roll out in the morning. Even if nobody comes around asking why you haven't paid I wouldn't suggest doing that more than once per campground. I think Bec has done similar at RR and JT with a car. Like I said before, you just need to learn how to work the system.

Honestly, I haven't hit many of the "classic" areas because they cost so much money. Not to mention they are generally over crowded. I tend to favor places on Forest Service land with free camping and no entrance fees. Even a lot of those places are becoming pay for play.Unsure

Are you planning on going to Cochise Stronghold? I think you can camp and climb for free there. And there is everything from bouldering to multi pitched routes on granite. The guidebook is tough to get you hands on though.

A park pass still seems like a good idea, but I see what you are saying.

Thanks for the tower beta. It seems that sneaking in if possible is the way to go, I've heard that from others as well. Frank sounds like a cool guy, I'd be happy to help him out with work or whatever if he'd let me pitch my tent. I might drop you a pm on his specific info...

The reasons you mention are exactly why I'd like to get a truck...but only for even trade. I'd be super convienent to be able to just pull over and sleep wherever comfortably and with a reasonable chance of no one being the wiser, which you can't really do in a car.

That campground registration trick sounds good, haha. That goes in line with what Bec was saying about meeting folks to share a site with.

I hear what you are saying about the popular areas. We'll see, I guess. I've been going back and forth about getting Rock N Road, but I think I might, just to have an encyclopedia of areas; I've never heard of Cochise (well, I think I've seen a reference to it here and there). It sounds great, though. Vedawoo looks great, as well.

Being flexible is key. And if you have a small tent of truck finding a flexible girl is also key.

If you are having a good time somewhere don't be afraid to spend extra time there. Same with moving on if things aren't clicking. I have spent weeks at places that I thought I would only spend a couple days, and moved on after only a day at places I thought I would spend weeks.

Sometimes you can find good people to climb with and kinda move around with them from place to place.

Also, if you have room you can pick up climbers without cars and have them help pay for gas. Just be careful who you are picking up and taking near the borders since they do have drug checkpoints (along I-10 especially) from time to time in TX, NM and AZ. You don't want to be stuck with some guy you just met with a bunch of weed in his backpack if your car gets searched.

Also, when going into California on I-10 don't tell them you have or don't take fresh produce unless it is all marked product of the US. They will take it.
I am very flexible Laugh.

When I was in Europe, I did exactly that; stayed in places longer that were cool, etc. I don't really have a plan per se, but I have a general arc in mind because you have to follow the weather to a certain degree.

Thanks for the info on I-10 and picking up folks. I'll be careful (obviously) but that is definately something to consider if they have gas money...Smile

Yes, I have two copies. Two different editions. I might be persuaded to lend on out with a hefty deposit. Or let you photo copy the parts you want. Not that you would want to stop in this wasteland.

Let me look it up, I know next to nothing about the place.

If I decide to go, I would give you a deposit on the book if you are willing to lend it. If it's such a cool area, why is the guide so hard to find?

Probably nothing; you're married, for one. Most of the people I saw having real trouble (and I mean that in the relative sense....they were still having fun) were a.) college couples who hadn't spent every waking moment together and b.) never travelled much. The stress of this plus being in foriegn countries can take a toll. After my first trip overseas, I though "I'm never, ever travelling with someone else for an extended period of time."

Since you both aren't new to this stuff, I'm sure you'll be fine!

Jay- you got a campsite? IME says that cannon is unstable and really prone to rockfall until july-august, and we're considering cathedral.

No.

It's going to be a day trip. Considering that it is a measily 2 hour drive it most often is. Notch and I are going to leave hear early and hopefully get up there before the crowds really show up. I'd, ideally, like to get a few good climbs in. I think we're going to go for the Funhose-Pooh-Upper Refuse link up for climb #1 and I'd like to play on Didre or Intimidation (or both) after that. Who knows, I may end up talking him into some slab action at the end of the day. My plans are to beat myself up. The bad thing is that he climbs well below my level, so anything hard I'll be the ropegun which as we all know is somewhat taxing.

IME is correct. I've heard reports about Cannon already this year with toaster - mini-fridge size blocks coming off. Our gym manager was up there on Wednesday, and I'll get a full report from him tonight. Are you leaving tonight or tomorrow? We'll have to "bump" into each other.

Probably nothing; you're married, for one. Most of the people I saw having real trouble (and I mean that in the relative sense....they were still having fun) were a.) college couples who hadn't spent every waking moment together and b.) never travelled much. The stress of this plus being in foriegn countries can take a toll. After my first trip overseas, I though "I'm never, ever travelling with someone else for an extended period of time."

Since you both aren't new to this stuff, I'm sure you'll be fine!

Nah, I'm not really worried. We've already done the whole spend a month together living out of a back of a truck, only being seperated when you have to take a shit, thing.

I might have to kill Nathan if we went over seas though, considering how poorly he managed just visiting Quebec.

That sounds like being married.Crazy

But yes.Also, don't make plans to have anyone fly in and meet you either. Make them drive to wherever. If you are trying to get a piece of ass in Hueco and your buddy is flying into Phoenix the next day it makes it hard to pick between where you should be.

A park pass still seems like a good idea, but I see what you are saying.

Thanks for the tower beta. It seems that sneaking in if possible is the way to go, I've heard that from others as well. Frank sounds like a cool guy, I'd be happy to help him out with work or whatever if he'd let me pitch my tent. I might drop you a pm on his specific info...

The reasons you mention are exactly why I'd like to get a truck...but only for even trade. I'd be super convienent to be able to just pull over and sleep wherever comfortably and with a reasonable chance of no one being the wiser, which you can't really do in a car.

That campground registration trick sounds good, haha. That goes in line with what Bec was saying about meeting folks to share a site with.

I hear what you are saying about the popular areas. We'll see, I guess. I've been going back and forth about getting Rock N Road, but I think I might, just to have an encyclopedia of areas; I've never heard of Cochise (well, I think I've seen a reference to it here and there). It sounds great, though. Vedawoo looks great, as well.


If you already have a park pass there is no need to sneak into the Tower. Having a park pass is nice for rest days too. I have went to a lot of places that I normally wouldn't have coughed up the $20 for a half a day I spent there when passing through.

You can PM Frank. He is Bigwally on here.

Get a station wagon. We met a guy who had his wagon all set up for covert sleeping. He said he has slept in residential areas before. Just roll in late. Go to sleep and leave in the morning. Just make sure it is legal to park where ever you park.Laugh

Poaching camping kinda goes with what Bec was saying about sharing, but not really. If you do poach make sure you have a good story. And you still could get a ticket. Sharing sites really isn't poaching, since the site is paid for.

Rock n' Road is nice, but it won't tell you anything you can't find on the NET. On the other hand you can't flip through the NET when you don't have a computer or internet service.

If you wanted to leave a huge deposit we have a ton of guide books. Most are irreplaceable though but we have some off the wall places. R&I used to have mini guides years ago in every issue. I've hit some really cool backwater places. Here is a tip. If you see a guidebook for a place you would like to visit someday, (and it isn't the Red where they come out with a new book every two years) BUY IT. I have books I've bought years ago and still never used, but the books have been out of print and you can't find them anywhere. And don't buy Falcon books unless you need to, those sadly will never go out of print and are generally fucked up.

Vedauwoo is cool. Really sharp though. Bring lots of tape. Jack also rated everything there.Wink

Yes, I have two copies. Two different editions. I might be persuaded to lend on out with a hefty deposit. Or let you photo copy the parts you want. Not that you would want to stop in this wasteland.

Let me look it up, I know next to nothing about the place.

If I decide to go, I would give you a deposit on the book if you are willing to lend it. If it's such a cool area, why is the guide so hard to find?
Its not the cool new envouge area and there probably isn't a shit ton of new development happening. They were made in a single printing and they only printed however many they thought they could sell. I suppose there isn't enough demand yet to reprint. I almost sold my first edition to Redlegrangerone way back when for a good amount of money.

Yeah, but not so good when trying into Quebec and then to Montagne d'Argent. Nor when driving around Quebec city. Montreal wasn't so good either the first time.

You only deal with it well when we finally get where we need to go.

You know, that is a really good idea about the station wagon. This might need some more thought....

Sty was giving me some bandit camping ideas for the valley. Like you said, there are ways around stuff. Maybe I will get by on my good looks.Tongue

I need a new computer, and am thinking about trying to get a cheap laptop to store photos and write on while I'm travelling. So if I can access the net, I guess I might be all set versus having something like Rock N Road. The $50 price tag seems a bit much, especially since you don't get any info on actual routes. Maybe I'll go to REI and flip through it again, maybe not...

Thanks for mentioning your catelogue of books, maybe we can work something out. I was only originally interested in info in the main areas I'm visiting: Yosemite, Devil's, Squamish, RR, Indian Crk, Zion. But I'm definately getting more and more interested in the less popular areas, especially if I can work out partners. I saw some of your pics of Vedawoo, it looks great! I suck at offwidth, just haven't done much of it, so I will learn. Or turn into hamburger.

The Falcon guides tend to be hit or miss for me. The New Hampshire one isn't that great, as I remember. Eric Horst wrote Rock Climbing West Virginia, Virginia & Maryland and did a pretty good job. He's definately selective in routes and skips a fair amount of good ones, IMO, but he also covers three states, so...

I was going to get the "Rock Climbing Utah" guide, as it also seems to cover a broad range. What do you think, Sty?

Well, if the climbing is good, then the climbing is good.

It really is a mixed thing. I mean, you hear about Yosemite this and Yosemite that, and rightfully so i guess. But that's where all the people are. Crowds suck, but you won't lack partners.

Then you have the backwater areas with just as good rock quality but are not as big, and less people...but less partners.

Round and round we go. It will be fun no matter what. And you can't see everything in one trip, either.

it offers a pretty good overview of the state, if you're looking for decent coverage of most areas in-state, all in one book. You could spend several hundred dollars in guide books for Utah/Colorado Plateau and still have less than half of the ones available.

You'll always run into someone where ever you're climbing that has THE guide for the area, YKWIM? I wouldn't worry too much about having a comprehensive guide for your destination of the week, as long as you know how to get there and can socialize with the locals you should be fine.

Get a station wagon. We met a guy who had his wagon all set up for covert sleeping. He said he has slept in residential areas before. Just roll in late. Go to sleep and leave in the morning. Just make sure it is legal to park where ever you park.Laugh

Poaching camping kinda goes with what Bec was saying about sharing, but not really. If you do poach make sure you have a good story. And you still could get a ticket. Sharing sites really isn't poaching, since the site is paid for.

Rock n' Road is nice, but it won't tell you anything you can't find on the NET. On the other hand you can't flip through the NET when you don't have a computer or internet service.

If you wanted to leave a huge deposit we have a ton of guide books. Most are irreplaceable though but we have some off the wall places. R&I used to have mini guides years ago in every issue. I've hit some really cool backwater places. Here is a tip. If you see a guidebook for a place you would like to visit someday, (and it isn't the Red where they come out with a new book every two years) BUY IT. I have books I've bought years ago and still never used, but the books have been out of print and you can't find them anywhere. And don't buy Falcon books unless you need to, those sadly will never go out of print and are generally fucked up.

Vedauwoo is cool. Really sharp though. Bring lots of tape. Jack also rated everything there.Wink

Cool, I will have to PM him. I was just looking at his profile, he seems like a nice guy.

You know, that is a really good idea about the station wagon. This might need some more thought....


Sty was giving me some bandit camping ideas for the valley. Like you said, there are ways around stuff. Maybe I will get by on my good looks.Tongue

I need a new computer, and am thinking about trying to get a cheap laptop to store photos and write on while I'm travelling. So if I can access the net, I guess I might be all set versus having something like Rock N Road. The $50 price tag seems a bit much, especially since you don't get any info on actual routes. Maybe I'll go to REI and flip through it again, maybe not...

Thanks for mentioning your catelogue of books, maybe we can work something out. I was only originally interested in info in the main areas I'm visiting: Yosemite, Devil's, Squamish, RR, Indian Crk, Zion. But I'm definately getting more and more interested in the less popular areas, especially if I can work out partners. I saw some of your pics of Vedawoo, it looks great! I suck at offwidth, just haven't done much of it, so I will learn. Or turn into hamburger.

The Falcon guides tend to be hit or miss for me. The New Hampshire one isn't that great, as I remember. Eric Horst wrote Rock Climbing West Virginia, Virginia & Maryland and did a pretty good job. He's definately selective in routes and skips a fair amount of good ones, IMO, but he also covers three states, so...

I was going to get the "Rock Climbing Utah" guide, as it also seems to cover a broad range. What do you think, Sty?
A buddy of mine travels covertly, disguised in his "soccer mom" Toyota Previa.



Aside from all the benefits of driving a Toyota, it's Low-Pro, easy to camp in/out of if you get the dark window tints, and if you drive it right gives the appearance of respectability, which can go far at times to prevent the traffic stop from even happening in the first place. Wink

So my partner and I are going to do a grade III this weekend at cannon. Ought to be fun.

What about Cathedral? I'll be up there tomorrow.

And if you are stoked about a grade III, you need to get out more. Grade III ought to take 2-3 hours. Leaves time for moar climbing.
Jay- you got a campsite? IME says that cannon is unstable and really prone to rockfall until july-august, and we're considering cathedral.

No.

It's going to be a day trip. Considering that it is a measily 2 hour drive it most often is. Notch and I are going to leave hear early and hopefully get up there before the crowds really show up. I'd, ideally, like to get a few good climbs in. I think we're going to go for the Funhose-Pooh-Upper Refuse link up for climb #1 and I'd like to play on Didre or Intimidation (or both) after that. Who knows, I may end up talking him into some slab action at the end of the day. My plans are to beat myself up. The bad thing is that he climbs well below my level, so anything hard I'll be the ropegun which as we all know is somewhat taxing.

IME is correct. I've heard reports about Cannon already this year with toaster - mini-fridge size blocks coming off. Our gym manager was up there on Wednesday, and I'll get a full report from him tonight. Are you leaving tonight or tomorrow? We'll have to "bump" into each other.
we'll be up there tonight to camp and tomorrow to climb. 860-866-8197 for beers in the evening.

That sounds like being married.Crazy

But yes.Also, don't make plans to have anyone fly in and meet you either. Make them drive to wherever. If you are trying to get a piece of ass in Hueco and your buddy is flying into Phoenix the next day it makes it hard to pick between where you should be.

Have fun on the couch tonight.Laugh

A friend wanted to meet me in the creek, I wonder if I should make him drive from west virginia...
Just don't pick them up at the airport? Where would they even fly into? Salt Lake? That would be a lot of driving for you to pick them up and drop them off if they are only coming out for a week or something.

It is nice to have people lined up, but it really sucks to have set plans sometimes. Use your best judgment I guess.


I probably piss Bec off more than she does me.Smile

The guy with the wagon had a frigging boat. A lot of modern wagons are pretty small. A small truck might be a better option, but the wagon might be worth looking into. if you get a truck you will have to find a topper too if it doesn't come with one.

There was a discount bookstore here in two that had R&R for $20. I don't know if they still have them or not.

Vedawoo has a lot of great hand and fist cracks too. Its just famous for its offwidths.

When I go on a trip I bring a whole pile of guidebooks. I don't use half of them, but is keeps my options open and it doesn't really take a huge amount of room.

Falcon can be very hit and miss. Even if the author tries really hard they still manage to fuck stuff up. Normally the authors don't even seem to try that hard though. Falcon is mostly interested in putting out a cheaper guidebook more people will buy. Sometimes it is unavoidable to buy one, but given a choice I'll always take the not Falcon book.

Keep an open mind without expectations and you'll have a great time.

There are always ups and downs. Being flexible really helps get through the bad times. Having a soloist or silent partner or being cool with freesoloing new routes can be great if you have a dryspell with partners. That said, I stopped by the Tower to ropesolo a route and ended up having more partners than I knew what to do with. So I stayed a few weeks and only moved on because Bec was flying into Vegas.

Yes, yes. We need details aside from the rainy day story.

I want a Trad tuesday.



I did have a new route Saturday though. Enjoyed all 145m of it. Would have been completely hooped without pins. Fucked up one of my KB's though Mad. Damn twisted limestone cracks... mind you it wasn't over driven, tied off actually and was likely my best piece in the top half of the first pitch.

Pics, when I find the sync cord for my camera.
From what I've observed, any talk of actual climbing should not be happening within this thread.

Are you planning on going to Cochise Stronghold? I think you can camp and climb for free there. And there is everything from bouldering to multi pitched routes on granite. The guidebook is tough to get you hands on though.
Yes, I have two copies. Two different editions. I might be persuaded to lend on out with a hefty deposit. Or let you photo copy the parts you want. Not that you would want to stop in this wasteland.

Let me look it up, I know next to nothing about the place.

If I decide to go, I would give you a deposit on the book if you are willing to lend it. If it's such a cool area, why is the guide so hard to find?
Its not the cool new envouge area and there probably isn't a shit ton of new development happening. They were made in a single printing and they only printed however many they thought they could sell. I suppose there isn't enough demand yet to reprint. I almost sold my first edition to Redlegrangerone way back when for a good amount of money.

Well, if the climbing is good, then the climbing is good.

It really is a mixed thing. I mean, you hear about Yosemite this and Yosemite that, and rightfully so i guess. But that's where all the people are. Crowds suck, but you won't lack partners.

Then you have the backwater areas with just as good rock quality but are not as big, and less people...but less partners.

Round and round we go. It will be fun no matter what. And you can't see everything in one trip, either.

And sometime you'll meet people climbing at the crowded area that you'll follow to climb with at the uncrowded area. When I went on my road trip I met up with Nathan, then we went to Hueco, and from there I just went with the flow because of people I met from area to area.

There will be other people road tripping you'll end up meeting over and over again (and arrange to meet up with again).

So I made an early reply to the current helmet thread and I've been holding off on replying ever since. I don't feel like getting into a pro vs anti helmet argument. I'm pretty pro helmet, but realize that in many situations they'll do squat.

I have no desire to try to convince anyone that they should wear a helmet.

We got stopped at a border patrol checkpoint on 93 south and asked if we were american citizens. Kind of wierd.

It was entertaining on my part. Notch and I were walking back to the car and we passed this guy with a somewhat bewildered look on his face. He looked familiar, though where from? I had doc's number and was going to call him later, but my curiosity got the better of me and I gave him a rang. I called him as, what I suspect, he was posting a message on the board thar at the parking area.

He ended up borrowing notch's nuts.

You could have striped your rope into core strands and made a 140m rap. Or just made multiple raps. Whatever happened to "no man left behind"?

I could maybe understand dropping one nut and not going back down to get it, but a whole set? That would be close to dropping two cams.Shocked


I was climbing over water once and the guy I was belaying dropped a set of his nuts. I caught them out of mid air as they came by.Cool

In our matching shirts?

I don't care too much about the PC right now, I'm more concerned about lunch. But you're right, work keeps me pretty busy now, too busy to PC++ like I used to.

Now, back to lunch. I got stuck out on the floor and I'm ~3hours late for my meal. Pirate

You spilt that much katchup on yourself... you know there is this thing called "bleach" that you can use in the washing machine to... never mind, I figured it out...


...Doc never learned how to use the washing machine after spilling a tub of kachup on himself at the BBQ.

Why didn't you rap down and get them?
Because it was greater than 70m to the deck?

You could have striped your rope into core strands and made a 140m rap. Or just made multiple raps. Whatever happened to "no man left behind"?

I could maybe understand dropping one nut and not going back down to get it, but a whole set? That would be close to dropping two cams.Shocked


I was climbing over water once and the guy I was belaying dropped a set of his nuts. I caught them out of mid air as they came by.Cool
hopefully not with yer tooth.Crazy

It is actually BBQ prophylaxis. I can spill ketchup on myself in that shirt and no one can notice.

Anyhow, I'm off to clean some potential routes and maybe drill a few holes for some bolts. Ought to be fun.

I was waiting for my friend to upload his pix.

I should have worn the red shirt the first day, the grey one blends in pretty good with the rock, but they still came out pretty good.
