The weather here has sucked the last few days. In all the years before now,I haven't lost a single climbing day to the rain. But this trip we've had 3 days sort-of ruined by rain.

Yesterday we got lucky. It looked like crap, it looked like the skies were going to open any moment, but we hiked to FCR anyway. And while it rained a bit, it ended up being quite a good day, didn't start raining in earnest until the hike out (we were soaked! but it was still a good day).

There was a climb there that I've been on once before, and I wanted to redpoint it, and I thought I'd go up first, hang the draws, check out the moves... But it felt good, so I sent it as a warmup, hanging draws and awl. And it felt way easier than the grade.

Oh, and i also got a redpoint on that route I bailed on, 4 years ago, the day before yesterday. So, looks like I am finally getting into the climbing shape... just in time for the trip ending. As usual.

I think two days ago was the first time I came down from the climb and said, O.K., I can now believe that the knee surgery was worth it. Up until now I wasn't REALLY sure, bc it seemed like I was overall climbing better before the surgery, even if the knee was hurting... but after surgery, the knee wasn't hurting, but it wasn't functioning properly either, and wasn't getting stronger quite to the level it was before, so seemed like a lot of trouble for no gain...

But there was this 11b/c that I bailed on last year, with wonky knee before surgery. It wasn't even the crux, from what people were telling me, but it was a long move with a push initiated from the bad leg, with the other foot just flagging, and I could not do it last year. Just couldn't. No problem this year.

AND!!!! And, and, and!!!! I did a pistol squat on the gimp leg yesterday!!!! A recognizable pistol squat, down and up. Just one... but still... WOO?

I think those hikes are good for me.

Super glad to hear the surgery was worth it. The idea of going under the knife for little to ne gain would suck.

I'm feeling strong lately, My climbing last Sunday was subpar IMO, but in general I feel my endurance and strength is way up from last year.

Now I just need to find a project that inspires me.... Unsure

Yeah, I hear you on needing a project that inspires. I was having this issue in Xzzz this year, a combination of already having done the best of the routes in my onsight range, and having already checked the routes that would be in redpoint range, and climbing not-too-well, I just couldn't get psyched on any specific route. I got kinda psyched on one now, but I don't know if it is going to happen on this trip.

And then for the fall... I REALLY need something that I would be psyched on. Banz is finally agreeing to go to Miller Fork with me this fall, since the new book is coming out (he has this thing of not going to a new place, until the guidebook is out... except when he is on road trip and someone tells him that a crag is listed on MP, and there is a gimmie 13a... then he is all about going to that not-in-the-guidebook place!)

So anyway, I'm hoping to check out a bunch of new crags, and I also have a project that i WAS psyched on, from the spring. Not sure how psyched I am now that I blew a pulley on that "project" the first day I worked it. But I still am, sort of.

I have like 3 active projects. Problem is that my partner sends them before me and then doesn't want to go back.

2 of them are out of season though... gotta wait a few months.

Ewe need a weker partner.

Yardarm, Deliverance (or did you get that one?), and The Sic Gnar? That thing at Auburn? On the other hand, at least Hanging by a Thread was onsited, whereas it's still looming for kamhed.

I think I'd have to figure out what makes a project active to determine how many I have ... I'd say Breaking Bad, Drive-by, and Mortal Kombat all definitely fit the bill. Plus plenty of other stuff I've tried once or twice and not gone back to.

That's pretty much it. The Bat Karma.

Never got Deliverance. I punted off it then had to take a month off. Went back out of shape last September one time, but haven't been back since. It's closed from Feb to Aug for nesting.

I think it will go down pretty quick if I go back out there in shape.

Bat Karma too hot. Yardarm is in but it'll be a month before I get back. I'm really close there, but the crux is so hard it's a wildcard. I think it's like v5 or v6? Sic Gnar... hoo noes.

Sooo, since I'm newly single and just psyched on teh climb... anyone interested in some sort of Southwest meetup this winter? Might just pack myself into the Tacoma and live out there for a couple months, especially if this new freelance writing gig keeps producing.

I was just looking at Lime Kiln Canyon (UT/AZ/NV borderlands), and that place looks amazing!

Keep me posted. If our other plans fall through, I would be very tempted. I do want to change up my winter climbing destinations.

YES!

It's all up in the air, but I kind of want to hang out in Zion/Redrawks area, then maybe by mid january or so start driving down the baja coast or something cool like that.

is this going to be like yore long 3-week rode trip this past winter?

Well, this time I will not have a lady friend telling me to come back east, or be borrowing another fiernd's car.

Knot two worry..... Ther will be another log in the rode fly in the eye.

Yup! I was psyched for Banz getting strong, but it was a bummer for me personally, for this exact reason. Now we go somewhere, and he onsights the whole crag, and then he is done with it. So then we have to negotiate the "i'll go here with you on Saturday, if you go there with me on Sunday", instead of having a whole bunch of crags where we both have projects.

Oh well...

Back in the grind here.

Had a bit of an adventure getting back. Our flight got canceled at the last moment because "the plane was broken"-- I kid you not, that was the exact wording of the announcement.

I wouldn't have cared much, but Ed had a surgery scheduled at 6 a.m. today, so it was kinda imperative that we would get back in time. (we didn't know when we left for the trip when the surgery was going to be scheduled...)

Anyway, we made it. Waving the I-have-surgery-tomorrow card got us on a later plane from another airline, but we didn't get home until 1 a.m. So getting up at 5 a.m. sucked. A lot. But the rest of the day has gone smoothly.

Feel like I'm climbing well, and have been sampling routes looking for projects. Not finding much that's particularly inspiring unfortunately.

I didn't say I wanted to get on THAT one. I just wanted a not-broken plane that was on time. I know, completely unreasonable of me.

But it was weird bc this plane had just landed and pulled up to the gate, and was discharging people, and nobody there looked like they had any clue that the plane they just arrived in was "broken".

w00t! How long have you been at your current place? It's been quite a while it I recall. I'm trying to start packing stuff up at my little apartment and already feeling overwhelmed. You're got a lot more to do than I do!

What's in F33nix, besides even more heat than Vegas?

My dad passed away in March. My mom and the rest of the family is there

I am sorry. It's good that you are able to move closer to the family. How is the jorb situation, with the move? Being self-employed is good?

I'm self employed although by the Department of labor's most recent ruling, that could be debated. We do have an office in Scottsdale, but I'm not sure that I won't just go work for somebody else. Regular paycheck would be good. Hell, a paycheck would be good at this point .

weak-end report:

No rock touching whatsoever has occurred in the past week. Potluck on Saturday was fun, Ed no longer turns white and faints while wiggling his fingers in the sling, lots of pool time with lots of kids all weekend (I think there are 3-5 kids in my house, give or take, they fluctuate between the house and the pool, consume everything in the fridge, and occasionally weed my garden).

Went to see Inside Out with 3 of the kids yesterday. It was adorable, and awesome! I heard a lot of good things about it, but I was expecting the regular good-fun-for-kids Pixar production, did not expect to cry... but I did.

Not much to report here. Looked at bathroom stuff on Saturday and did a few other chores. Was too hot outside to do much of anything so mostly sat in central air bliss and did a bit of climbing in the basement on Sunday.

I thought Finding Nemo was meh. Or rather exactly-as-expected good kids movie with a few laughs for the parents.

I was expecting the same from Inside Out, but i liked it way more than I was expecting to like it, when I walked into the movie theater.

Haven't heard anyone freaking out about it though. what do people freak out about?

Well, while you guise were watching your animated filmz, I went to the hole on Sunday morning. Was able to get a 2-hang run in on the drive-by, which is not bad for having not been there in 4 or 5 months.

Nobody else was there other than the couple from the gym that I brought along. Folks have definitely been there, though ... when I started up the warmup, I was rather surprised (but maybe not that surprised) to find that the positive edge of the crimp that I matched on to the left of the third bolt was gone. It's still useable as a left hand, but not as a match, so I had to use the standard beta. It's not a huge deal, except if you are short and dependent on the match.

Who are these assholes breaking all those holds at the Hole? Inconsiderate.

I've started the hangboredom. Even with the dehumidifier I can only get the humidity down to 40% here in the Fayettenam cabin, though, ugh

.

I'm about to start hangboredom next week. Might wait for the first week of August though... no sense peaking while it is still too hot, and I won't be able to do campusing until the gym cools down a bit, anyway.

Need to mount my hangbored back. (I took it to the gym last winter, bc in winter I can hang bored at the gym, and it is nicer, bc I can do a good warmup for it. But there is no way I can do it at the gym in August, the air conditioning being absent, and awl).

I got it washed in the hold-washing machine before I took it home, cleaned all the pizza grease from the warmup hods, so it is nice and clean again. And Ed has the DRCC board, so between the rockprodigy and the DRCC I'm pretty happy.

Dunno exactly what holds I would use to rehab the finger. I was pretty happy with it in Xzzz, the pulley doesn't hurt anymore, but the finger is so freaking weak. As soon as the finger was isolated, it sucked. But monos don't seem like a good idea! And besides, it's not like I would need mono pockets at the Red.

Ideas?

For finger rehab, there are a couple ways you can mix it up to see how much injured finger can take. Hang with the injured finger on one hard hold, while doing a full four finger edge on the other. Or try different "spock" holds, in which you have two fingers in one pocket, and two in another, if that makes sense.

July is kind of early for hanging bored, but I'm not looking for a strict "peak," since I'm wanting to climb moderately hard from October to March. I'm just going to do a six week cycle, then GRADUALLY get the power endurance back mostly by getting on projects in September, and less with pure campusing. We'll see.

Yeah, I was thinking "Spock-like" for some holds. It is hard though, the pockets are too far apart on the trango board... might be able to do it on DRCC.

I am hoping for a longish season, too. But we'll see.

Got my hangboards mounted in preparation for starting the bored-hanging next week.

How is it possible that Ed standing on the ground can still reach higher than me standing on a chair? Not fair! Fortunately, I don't need the jugs on the top of the hangboard, anyway...

Wekend report: Found a way to beat this horrible heat. Full moon climbing at the Gunks Saturday. Very fun.

Also, crabbing at high tide. Was knee to waist deep in water much of the time. Kept quite cool despite 90 degree temps.

Clearly my chair is too small!

I hope you get all good beta on Ceuse in a week, and come back later for longer. My friend had just pent a month there before heading to California, where his girlfriend now lives. You guys would be crossing in the air.

Sent my project Saturday. A minor beta twerk and I sent next go. Part of a send train, my partner sent and then 4 of the routesetter crew who showed up sent too, including 2 flashes. 6 sends in a day of an obscure route at an obscure crag. Place is in the map. When we showed up in May, there was zero chalk, now it's caked.

Loyerettes birthday yesterday, nice little party with bubbles and cake. Fun.

Lol. Well they sent the whole tiny crag in a day while drinking beerz, so I don think there will be too many return visits. But 17 climbers were there at some point during the day, for a crag with 8 routes.

One of Jak's exes was getting close to the redpoint with your beta no doubt.

Need to mount my hangbored back. (I took it to the gym last winter, bc in winter I can hang bored at the gym, and it is nicer, bc I can do a good warmup for it. But there is no way I can do it at the gym in August, the air conditioning being absent, and awl).

I got it washed in the hold-washing machine before I took it home, cleaned all the pizza grease from the warmup hods, so it is nice and clean again. And Ed has the DRCC board, so between the rockprodigy and the DRCC I'm pretty happy.

Dunno exactly what holds I would use to rehab the finger. I was pretty happy with it in Xzzz, the pulley doesn't hurt anymore, but the finger is so freaking weak. As soon as the finger was isolated, it sucked. But monos don't seem like a good idea! And besides, it's not like I would need mono pockets at the Red.

Ideas?

I would also like to hang, bored. But my elbow is still tweaky.

Yeah, the only bad line on the entire run (which was rocky as all hell), I wound up falling out of the boat and then inhaling a bunch of water because I was laughing so much.

I noticed that. Maybe it's just a way to let you know that you're being watched. Obsessed and creepy.

Yes I was going to email you when I had confirmed moving dates but it looks like that won't work, though I could hook you up with some cool peeps. Sry.

Bailbiner is bailed on. The ironing!

And now I've decided to claim that I'm 4th generation Oakland... which is true. Technically. Grate grand pappy emigrated here 100 years ago and was a railroad engineer. Choo Choo!Angelic

I was hard up to climb last weekend. SO I staggered out to the local proj in some heat. very sweaty. I don't know if top rope soloing in bad conditions in your boxer shorts is hard core or just pathetic.

If felt like it was on the pathetic side.

No, it is very shady but the hike is sunny and hot and Im in a froth when I get there. The climb has mostly good texture, but the crux is tenuous and I fall off every time if my fingers are sweating (which they were). An evening breeze kicked up and my second run went better though, I just got out there too early.

I don't even bother trying to climb anything remotely hard in the sun any more unless it's cold. Spent like zero days at the house and Gee dub last season since I saw you guys in November... because it was 80 and sunny every weekend all winter.

Man, I drank a AB the other day, first one in years... It was delicious. Then went to a Grace Potter show. Never heard of her, best show I've seen in at least 5, maybe 10 years? So good.

So I'm trying to decide if I want to go to the big folk music festival happening in town here this weekend. Ticket price for two and a half days (Friday to Sunday) go at $115, which is a good value if this was something that you were really into, but a little steep if you're not sure if you want to go. Could but a one day ticket for $70, but it's not that much more for the whole weekend.

Lot of people going to be there, but I only know a few of the names and of those I'd only be interested in Joel Plasket and Whitehorse (though I think it's likely that you guys have never heard of either).

But, if I don't go I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself all weekend. Every other year I've had something else going on.

That doesn't seem all that pricey for a 2-day fest. I like going to those smaller festivals, because you can often find some kickass new acts that you like, and if the act that is playing sucks, do something else for a half-hour.

No, I don't think it's expensive considering it's a 2-day+ (Friday night is in there too) fest. It's just expensive enough though that I don't know if I should go just for the sake of going, ya know?

Oh totally. There are a few festivals around bozeangeles that I haven't made it to, largely due to scheduling, but also due to only mild interest in the genre.

I like golf music, but I feel that there should be more than two people on the list that I recognize and I'm interested in.

Still, I have some friends that absolutely RAVE about this festival every year, and seeing as this I my last week up in the area I think I'll probably go. Then I can say, yeah I went to SummerFolk once.....I've seen better.

Plus I decided to do hangboreding right now, so I don't really need to get out and climb the climbs this weekend, just get my workout in on Sunday.

Could but a one day ticket for $70, but it's not that much more for the whole weekend.

Lot of people going to be there, but I only know a few of the names and of those I'd only be interested in Joel Plasket and Whitehorse (though I think it's likely that you guys have never heard of either).

But, if I don't go I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself all weekend. Every other year I've had something else going on.

That doesn't seem all that pricey for a 2-day fest. I like going to those smaller festivals, because you can often find some kickass new acts that you like, and if the act that is playing sucks, do something else for a half-hour.

No, I don't think it's expensive considering it's a 2-day+ (Friday night is in there too) fest. It's just expensive enough though that I don't know if I should go just for the sake of going, ya know?

Oh totally. There are a few festivals around bozeangeles that I haven't made it to, largely due to scheduling, but also due to only mild interest in the genre.

I have not dabbled.

But there is a punk festival out in the desert in October that I'm going to. Bad Religion, Pennywise, Descendents, NOFX, Agent Orange, TSOL, Bouncing Souls, Strung Out, Anti-Flag, Sham 69, Swingin' Utters, H20, some 90's ska bands I could really do without, and some others.

Hopefully I'll be able to hit up New Jack the next day, it's not too far away from there.

We aren't getting any younger. When is the fest? Maybe I can swing a short trip. There is a nice textile dying workshop in Josh that the loyerette would like to attend some time in October.

Folk fest was good. Best thing about it was seeing a bunch of random people from town that I may not have seen otherwise before I left town.

Music was pretty good too, but I like that fiddle and accordion stuff.

Well-timed weight loss!

So I leave for France on Friday night, and I've been pushing myself away from the dinner table over the last six weeks, and was down about 6 pounds.

Monday night, I was fortuitously struck by a pretty severe 24-hour stomach bug that had me shitting all night and barely eating yesterday. Today I was down 2.5 more pounds! No real guarantee those 2 lbs will actually stay off, since it's basically dehydration, but it can't hurt. Unfortunately, no vomiting, so none of that beneficial core workout.

Sweet!

I never got as low as I would like to this summer, and the last two-three weeks have been weird and emotional for me leaving town and my job and all. Anyway, point of the story is that I may have even gained a bit of weight in the last few weeks.

Plenty of time for good weight loss in the next month though! Not sitting at a desk will help with desk doldrum eating and I plan in putting a pile more Km's on my bike through September.

I actually purposefully skipped putting any KmsMIs on my bike the last two weekends, I wanted to make sure my thighs didn't get big.

I also only have a weke of climbing, so I kind of have to optimize for that. If you're on the CI-plan of taking 1+++++++ years off, no need to worry too much about dropping all the weight right at the start.

I don't put on muscle easily so my thighs don't bulk up when I cycle, but it's a commen complaint from most people.

I may be going off to climb for a year, but I'd still like to hit the ground running. It's also almost time to switch over to drytooling so I'll only have a few weeks in October for rock before I pretty much pick up the tools exclusively. Bozeman IWC will sneak up on us here pretty quick.

Also, if anyone want to go climbing for a week or something in September I don't feel bad at all if I take the Fittus and leave Nathan behind building the van.

Two weak-ends make a difference is thigh bulking? Wow!

I mean, I have heard a lot of people say that they don't bike or run as means of weight loss, bc they end up feeling ravenous and over-eating, as well as gaining muscle. But surely couple weekend rides are not enough?

Banz does pretty well with running+weight loss, but he is ruthless in sticking to his starvation plan, when he decides to do it.

Running does not work for weight loss for me at all because it makes me too hungry. Cycling gets me out of the house for usually a couple of hours at a time and does not give me the same hunger pangs as running.

<----- fatty mc fatterson over hear has lost 20 lbs cycling. I get hungry, but in different ways. It also helps that I eat while riding, but being active daily has helped tremendously. Realigning my diet has helped as well, too. I gained a fair amount of muscle in my legs, but I have leaned out a fair amount too. Just commuting has helped. Eating a little bit ( a 100 cal snack like fruit or yogurt) right after riding helps with the hanger as well as I'm still burning fuels about an hour or so after a good ride.

I haven't done any rigorous testing. But I had gone out riding the past few weekends, and figured I ought to take these last two off. But the rides tend to involve a fair amount of climbing, which I suspect is probibly a driver of larger thighs. It's all very unscientific, however.

On long bike rides, your body just gets into high firing mode so much that I think it would be nearly impossible to control the amount you're eating. However, I've definitely found that just doing my quick ride in and out of the gorge– lose and gain 1000 feet in about 9 miles– is just enough to burn 600-700 calories, but not to tempt you to inhale excess calories.

Also, not sure if I told y'all, but somehow one of the chronically understaffed schools here roped me into a fulltime teaching gig here. English! It's fun, I think I'm making a difference with under-advantaged kids and awl that ghey stuff, but this is going to REALLY cut into my klimbtime. I'm really using the extra $$$, though, since Taco needs new leaf springs.

Is this how it all ends?

When you climb are you spinning or grinding up the hills? It affects which type of muscle you build. You should be in a high-cadence spin to drop weight and build lean muscle. You can achieve this on hills without bulking up. A weekend's worth of riding won't build you up.

I strength trained specifically to ride on the velodrome down here and didn't bulk up. My legs, proportionally, are smaller than when I was training for skiing. If you're cycling for sprints and training as such, then you'll end up bulking. I ride for endurance with some sprints thrown in here and there. If you're eating right and training effectively, you'll lean up and build some impressive strength.

It's also (occasionally, though not recently) non-monotonic within a cycle.

No, it ends when you get married and have babies. Ask Joe, if you are not sure. But with this full-time teaching gig... you are definitely on your way to an end.

It would have been cooler if you were teaching science. Tongue

It's hard to compare. Quick mugging at home, with a cell phone in your pocket. Or in a jungle at dusk a few thousand miles from home in a foreign country that is poor and corrupt.

Spent the day helping Nathan with a roofing job. It was 30C yesterday and humid as all get out. Today I'm unloading the Sprinter of all my stuff from Owen Sound and I don't have a place to put it, so major house cleanup.

I shouldn't complain, but not working has been a lot more work than anticipated.

Freedo isn't free.

He's doing 15-20 in the state pen for racketeering, fraud, embezzlement, and conspiracy.

Yeah, I'm always really busy on my non-working days. Dunno why it happens.

The weather is so disgustingly hot and humid here, and for the coming weekend, too. Everyone is bailing right and left. can't blame people for that ,either...

With the heat this weekend going into next week I'll be climbing indoors. I have considered doing so half ass real peridization. Did three weeks of hang boarding the end of August, figuring I'd be super busy and Inwouldnt get to the cliff. Not super effective with the humidity, but still saw some gains and it's good to stress my fingers a little.

Power is a big weakness for me anyway, so I thought some limit bouldering or going to our friends massive training wall and trying to learn how to campus would be bennificial.

It's a good plan. I'm starting the power phase, too. Though it was so hot here the last few days, I couldn't bring myself to go to the gym.

Yet, strangely enough, I am struck by a strong desire to go climbing outside this weekend. In 90F heat. Crazy, I know. I have compromised by deciding to go for 2 days only.

Weak-end report: Yes, I went climbing. Yes, it was hot.

It was the first time in I don't even remember how many years that I went on an all-girls trip. 3 other ladies.

Went to PMRP the first day, Bronaugh and Purgatory. There were some new routes at Bronaugh that were decent, and in the absence of anyone willing to hang my draws I hung them myself.

Worked on Belly of the Beast, figuring that it was appropriate for "power phase". And there was no shortage of willing spotters. And I jumped. Where was camhead, or Banz, or ANYONE, when I needed the witness? I jumped.

The second time I jumped and tore the flappers on 3 fingers at once. The combination of sand, sharp rock, and humidity is just not very good for skin! But I really wanted to stick the move, and I did. Most of the flappers weren't bad, just the top layer of skin with more good skin underneath... But one was full-on bloody thing. Ugh!

Then we went to Purgatory, and I hung the draws on Gluttony. Again, where were the witnesses?! It was an epic flail fest. I was remembering that the last time I tried this thing was also in 90F heat, a few years ago, but back then camhead hung the draws, and I whined my way up, and grabbed draws, and shit. I still can't hang the 3rd draw on lead, but stick clip is awesome. And since there weren't draws to grab for the rest of it, I didn't grab any. Such a fun route, in all seriousness. I should go back when the weather is better.

Monday we went to Chaos in Miller Fork. I'm definitely underwhelmed. Haven't yet found a crag in Miller Fork that i want to go back to, over and over. Maybe Infirmary... that one was nice. But I'll keep trying.

Lena, until there is uncut footage posted on DPM, I don't believe that ewe jumped.

Had a great, hot weakend. I have no idea why, but this hangbored phase did not sap my power as much as earlier ones did. I did a few seshes in the bouldering gym last week, and was feeling good on all the deadpoints.

Then, went hard on the permadrawed cave routes this weekend. Citizens of B_ET, get your everything ready cuz Ima SPRAY...

Saturday: climbed at the Hole. Sent Blood Raid (13a) and Lactic Acid Bath (12+) back to back. Rested, talked shit, then flashed Devil Doll (12+). Then one hung the short, bouldery Against the Grain.

Sunday: Coleseum. Warmed up on Apollo, then one hung both Pod and MRSA Seat (both 13a/b). Drank a beer, did Apollo again, drank another beer, did Apollo yet again.

Monday: Was fucking thrashed.

oooh, I feel so bad for you. Being trashed and all. Maybe you should cut your beers with some gatorade next time.

Also, maybe you should try harder climbs? instead of doing laps for your power phase? That would be grate!

So I wuz out for a longerish ride yesterday. Was almost at 45km, 15 km left to go, when some bug hit my in the face, went behind my sunglasses and stung me!

So now I'm in a bad mood, and the last 15km sucked, but other than it being a little sore where I got stung (between my eyebrow and eyelid) it wuz okay. Noticed a bit of swelling before I went to bed last night, but still not a big deal.

Eye is totally swollen this morning and I Ned to go over to the states and pick some stuff up. Even though I'm kinda ugly right now, there are still far uglier people who cross every day. I just don't want to be hassled about the stuff I'm bringing back to Canada,

Oh noez!

The stings around the eye swell horribly. I got stung by a bee in the eyelid when I was a little kid, and then again in college in the corner of the eye close to the bridge of the nose. Total shut-eye miserableness for couple days.

Are you a big sunglasses kinda gal? Does help some with people not staring you in horrible fascination.

Unless you plan to smuggle diamonds under an eye patch, and this will make your bulge bigger, I think you're probably safe.

I have no bee allergies so the swelling was just a bit inconvenient, mostly been feeling like heavy eye lids. Swelling has gone down since this morning too.

One more thing was coming tomorrow so I'm waiting till Sunday to run over and do my pick up. Going to declare this stuff, but when the fridge comes in I think I'll make plans for a weekend trip.

Truck Fridge is here... Well not here, in the Bufferzone at a friend's place but still.....

It's Nathan's birthday weekend, and I don't really have anything for him (other than a sweet van). Going away up North I think....maybe first weekend of October I should head south? Would love to get to the Gunks.

No schit. It has snowed essentially every day since I've arrived in NYC. We're having some great ski days and ice climbing, but I'm missing those occasional days of crisp sun at the NRG. Am getting stronger in the gyms here, though. It will pay off.

it's supposed to be a high of 80 in the santa monicas this weke end. just yore weekly socak weather update.

Sunny and 50s out here. Can you send us some of your snow?

I'll send you some snow if you send us some mountains. After running around the Alps for the last couple of weeks I think I'd like to try skiing.

Pretty psyched on skiing now myself right now too, though it's pretty pathetic that I grew up in Yewtaw, but didn't really downhill ski until moved East.

I knew there wuz something a little weird about ewe.

I guess that's why I bring it up here. I do feel I get some gains out of what I'm doing, but I'm not pushing hard enough to see anything significant.

That's why I like repeaters; they actually factor in a bit of the endurance aspect, and leave you feeling like you just got off a pumpy route at your limit by the end of the day.

The Manderson book will have better details, but the most important part of hanging bored is establishing your true failure point. Figure out how many reps you want to do (6 reps in a minute, each rep = 6 seconds hanging + 4 seconds rest), and then using the proper hold and/or weight added to get you to the failure point.

Failure point usually means that for the second or third to last rep, you start quivering and being REALLY tired. Then, for the very last rep, your fingers literally can't hold onto the edge. It might take a few seshes to gauge your failure point, but once you've got it, you can tailor all your workouts and weight additions to it.

+1

I like manderson book a lot. But I feel like you should take it as a starting point and then modify a bit (they suggest that, too, and Iv'e had discussions with mark and Mike over specifics)

For example, I don't add weight in 10lb increments on all holds. On most holds, I do 7.5 lb between set 1 and set 2 (or set 1, 2, and 3, if you are doing the advanced one). But for the smallest holds I actually only go up 5 lb between sets 1 and 2. And from one session to the next, I go up by 5 lb, until I start getting a lot of failures, towards the end, and then I start increasing by 2.5lb.

Also, I used to do 7 reps of (7 sec on/3 seconds off) in set 1, and then 6 reps, with increased weight, of (7s on/3s off). This is what mandersons call "intermediate workout".

Last cycle, I tried going to advanced workout, and I just couldn't do 7 reps, then 6 reps, then 5 reps. because in order to pick weights that i would be failing on on the 3rd set, I ended up with way too light a weight on the first set of 7 reps, it didn't feel like a good workout. then talking to Banz, he suggested that instead of 7 reps, 6 reps, 5 reps, I do 6 reps, 5 reps, 4 reps. It seemed to work much better for me (this is what I did in this cycle). I feel like I was getting a workout even on the1st set, and failing by 3rd set.

I guess we will see how, and if, the results pay out. I just finished the last set on hangboard this week. Starting campusing and bouldering now. (scared... but excited, too)

For me, taking 3.5-4 weeks to do dedicated hangboard, instead of fitting hangboard with climbing is SOOOO worth it. I think you should do that, instead of hangboard once or twice a week between climbing. I had started on january 13th, and the only climbing I had done in the past 4 weeks was just a little bit of easy stuff to warmup, with the emphasis on not getting pumped.

Well, yesterday I got on a bunch of new routes, in the grade that I would have been able to do after couple tries, but maybe not on the first go, and it was like, wow, this route-setter used to set much harder, his routes seem so much easier now... oh wait, this 2nd route-setter routes have gotten easier, too. Oh wait, this 3rd guy also seems to be setting easier now...
It is possible that 3 different route-setters set 8 new routes, and graded all of them softer than they used to grade before, but maybe a likelier explanation is that I am just a little bit stronger. Tongue

And I get so much more psyched with the changing cycles, too...

I'm knot reading ^^that^^

Ya, I picked a shitty time to move back east. Not that there's any good time, but... seems like CO and UT are just perfect rock weather, have been most of the winter.

Grr.

Oh, did I mention our pipes froze over the weekend? Ya, that was fun. Only plus in all this is that our landlord gave us a break in the rent this month because of all the crap we've been dealing with.

Hopefully. I scheduled this book tawk so that I can have a day before it and a day after to work on the Moon Butt. Pat's been on it before, and has been climbing teh one-three tard for a decade. Although both of us are getting back into it after a blortful winter.

Gotta say, although I get burned out by the city really easily, and this northeastern cold is miserable, the regular access to gyms has been really helpful.

It didn't turn owt that way but this PTFTW did?!?

they are not amazing. nate's been trying to get rid of his they're so bad, been leaving them as fixies in easy sections of rowts awl over the place. way too skinny to be of use.

Drup.

I have never failed on a climb due to the draws being too heavy. Though I will file that back in the future excuses department to use when I've exhausted diet, conditions, and ibuprofen use as reasons for failurez.

Skinny draws suck. Ewe just can't grab them easily enough.

Did a couple nice things on a brand new cliff, would have been 2 FAs but I took on each to not snake them from our tour guide. Last route of the day on a different cliff, was making a clip on an 11c, foot hold broke while I was clipping. Worst spot, my hand right next to the draw, rope in my teeth. Glad the instinct was to spit it out instead of clamp down. I think that's like 2x this year I've fallen with clipping slack out, yikes.

Good news about the long approach is that its only 20 mins downhill on the bikes.

Ewe could spare those poor holds by loosing some winter blort next tyme?

It doesn't work that way, at least when you want to get really lean. When you do more exercise your body asks for more fuel. Maybe if you're really big just exercise can help, but if you're already slim then you just eat more and if you love eating then you'll probably eat more than you need. The first winter I started running I gained 10lbs.

Definitely. The easiest and quickest way to lose weight is to just cut calories and keep up with otherwise regular training routines off yore head.

I'm a bit heavier than I want to be right now (163 instead of 156), and am just tracking calories and eating no simple carbs or excessive fats/sugars. It's been fairly easy, because Diogi's is closed (may be for good!), and I don't have the constant temptation of chips and margaritas, heh.

Really good getting-back-into-it seshes over the last three days, even though all the snow melting has drenched 90% of the routes here. Just trying to do volume and endurance, but I'm only able to do it on about 12c routes right now. Hopefully will get back up to 13 shape in the next month and a half.

Just trying to do volume and endurance, but I'm only able to do it on about 12c routes right now. Hopefully will get back up to 13 shape in the next month and a half.

this post could have been just as informative without the numbers in the last paragraph, you know.

He just can't help himself.

What a quiet bunch of gerks! Shame, shame!

I touched some rocks this weekend. They were wet on Saturday, and dry on Sunday. I am weke. And I have more suntan than I planned on having.

Holly cow, it was 65F and sunny. And yes, we went to a sunny crag even though we knew it was going to be hot and sunny, because we wanted dry rock. So did everyone else. The end.

P.S., it was actually a fun climbing day, even though I suck at climbing.

In other news... my uber-sandbagged gym training seems to be paying off. Ramping up for a weekend at the Gunks and then a week at the New and the Red.

Was planning on using this last weekend to throw myself at a bunch of hard shit at Rumney. (Don't get excited, carny-hands was not there - does he even climb any more?) Had no projects, so everything was new to me (well, some stuff I had flailed on once a decade ago.) Thinking of it as more training for real climbing, I expected to do a lot of flailing. I failed to flail, and sent almost everything I tried, first go. Including one route which is supposedly at the same level as the hardest grade I've ever sent, period.

This means two things, 1 - I got really lucky, and 2 - I have to get on harder shit.

That is awl.

Nice work!

I spent the weekend mostly not-climbing (aside from a day trip to Columbus gym on Sunday).

Went dancing Friday night with Ed (one of the more-horrible live "swing" bands that I ever had a pleasure dancing to... they played a lot of rock-n-roll-type not-at-all-swing music. but there were many good leads there, and surprisingly few good follows, so I had fun)

Went to see The Martian on Saturday. It was good, except for a really stupid finish (there really wan't any need to change the book finish, it was exciting enough). I heard a lot of people hyping it up, but I thought the movie was just decent, not excellent. Really enjoyed the book...

Planning on seeing the Martian this weekend, hopefully. Saw the Everest movie last week, was actually excellent I thought. Great portrayals of Krakauer, Boukreev, and Scott Fischer. Excellent scenery, and it got the intricacies of climbing pretty well.

Hey, so we'll be in your hood next weekend (the weekend of 10/17). Would be great to climb with you!

How 'bout you Lena - any chance you'll still be at the Red that Monday?

Yup, I'll be around! It will be Bridge Day that Saturday, so there will be some chaos but climbing will still be possible and awesome. I also will be having to bail early on Saturday to get to my new gf's sister's weeding. But we will most definitely climb zee climbs.

In other gnus, Alex Megos is spending three weeks here. It's pretty cool, since nearly all Euro superstars tend to just go to the RRG; I think that Herr Hörst probably convinced him of the potential of the NRG, even if it lacks a bunch of 9a's.

I don't get star-struck or blown away very often; plenty of pro climbers have come through here. But this kid is on a different level (well, obviously, first 14+ onsight in the world, Realization second go, that sort of thing). On his first day here, for his second route, he walked The Racist like it was a 5.10, no stopping for rests, no grunting, nothing. Pretty cool.

I haven't forgotten. But I don't know yet. Partner situation really sucks right now. It's amazing how quickly you get used to good things, and how hard it is to get " unused" to them. Anyone has some voodoo healing powers to get Ed's shoulder recover quicker?

Banz would be at the New that weekend. So that is a point in favor of going to the New instead of the Red. But it is a bridge day, and that is definitely a point against the New.

Then again, there are a few people who are all going to the New this weekend for various reasons, some to avoid Rocktoberfest. Others bc of the husband preferences, bc hubby hardly ever goes climbing, but when he does, he wants to go to the New, etc. So all of those people are more likely to go to the Red next weekend, and carpooling is nothing to sneeze at. But the likelihood of any of them wanting to stay for an extra day... sigh.

Someone has to write a computer program that takes all these variables into account and spits out your partner choices at the end. Tongue

I think my biostatistician Is taking hallucinogenic drugs.

I send him links to two different DNA regions.

He comes back and says, they are the same.

I click on the links I had sent him, in case I made a mistake... they are different! So I tell him so.

He sends me back screenshots of the links, saying, look, they are the same.

I dutifully look at the screenshots... and they are DIFFERENT!!!!

This is seriously hilarious.

He also made his girlfriend carry the bigger pack, under the guise of getting her to do some easy climbs. Hurray for gunkie girlfriends who like this kind of treatment.

Yeeeeah, Karen wuntzed to go climb moderates and had never been to Bubba Shitty. I sent a proj on Saturday, so she knew she could convince me to go there on Sunday.

Have never had my balls cupped so hard. That Russian guy who knew you was like, "are you camhead? why are you climbing here!"

and then when I offered some advice about lowering off of routes, he was telling his crew "listen to him, he's the closest thing to a pro climber that you'll see at Bubba City!"

Oh dear.

Ewe were getting yore balls cupped pretty good in noiZ over yore book until ewe brought up teh wilderness issue. Then teh butthurtz started to show.

The day we did NFoC is boring - everything went according to plan. Here's a better story:

This is back in Hart's Draw. Kinda like the Creek, but with very little documentation. A lot more figure-it-out-as-you-go kinda place. No crowds. Actually no other climbers at all.

Woke up one morning after a cold night (it was down in the 20s - I planned on 40s) and it's cloudy and windy, so we're looking for maximum sun. My partner knows a cliff with a bunch of new routes on it, at moderate grades. It's a long approach (like an hour), but it should catch full sun (to the degree that we get any) all day. Only trouble is that he's only heard about which buttress it's on, and that's about it. So, he figures it might require "around a half hour of time to track down the routes once we get there."

There also might be potential for new routes in that area, so in addition to the rope, haul line, five sets of cams, we throw in the bolt kit. Did I mention the hour approach? It was a long slog with those packs.

After the bushwhacking trudge and loose talus slope with fifty pound packs is finally done, we wandered around for an hour before deciding, definitively, that this cliff has zero established routes. So we picked out the best line - what looked to be a sixty foot finger crack in good rock. Only trouble was that it was still freezing. Mmm, cold fingers in cold rock. We flipped for it, and I got the lead.

I planned to most likely aid through the crux, because near the top it looked like the crack narrowed to green and then maybe even blue Aliens, and there was a huge stack of detached rotten blocks teetering just a foot from the crack. Turned out I was able to hang on and keep my feet to the other side of the crack. Onsight! Pulled up the bolt kit, and... one hanger short. D'oh!

So my partner blames himself for not checking the kit, and runs(!) all the way back to the truck to grab more hangers and bolts, while I get in the first bolt and chain, drill and prep the next hole, clean and jug, and trundle the route. What a guy!

Turned out to be a pretty sweet climb, too, which I named "Bolting for Hangers".

With the additional bolts, he did another route next to that one. By then the weather had deteriorated, and it started snowing. Not quite as good a route, he named that one "Cold Leftovers".

Not the sunny day of moderates we had planned, but two good new routes, and a good story!

GO

I'm knot reading that

I think I mentioned that I've just been doing the beginner workout out of the Manderson book, at least until my fingers didn't feel so tweaky anymore. I was thinking of moving on to the intermediate workout later this week though now that I'm getting stuff sorted out. There's no benefit to sticking to the beginner workout instead of moving on to the intermediate workout, is there?

Ewe lost me at "hang board thing".

If you looked on facespace you'd see he didn't even do it clean. Weak sauce!

More hangboard tawk.

Two finger pockets will be the death of me. Big pockets hurt my skin too much and when I reduce the size they start to feel tweaky enough that I didn't finish the set.

I think my new game plan is to keep weight taken off and do two sets instead of one with them. It won't be super effective in terms of building up finger strength with them, but I think I need a lot more conditioning on them right now.

Oh fer Christ sakes...

I am disappointed to say that Lena didn't get her phone out quick enough to snap a photo of "1st Place - Gerks" when it came up on the projection screen.

No pic? Didn't happen.

Another thing that didn't happen is that I sucked it up and got on some hard (for me) shit at the Gunks this weekend. Holy crap Carbs and Caffeine is amazeballs. Erect Direction was excellent too.

But there is a shitty lining to this silver cloud - left my puffy in my Boston friends' car... less than a week before road trip to Red and New. Don't have another one. I'm slightly fucked.
