Holy crap man!!!

I'm glad to hear that you're alright.

The one thing, though, that I hate (HATE) {<-emphasis) seeing is for a climber to get rid of their tools just to make it.... & on that note...

What do you have lying around in your etsy shop (that is still on vacation?) I'd be willing to get a fancy something and help you not get rid of your climbing gear! Let me know!

that's a good thought. If I were there I would have bought something already, but now I wish I were there more.

Wow! You are lucky as hell to walk away from that one. Glad you did too. Thats intense.

While I agree with Epoch about selling the climbing gear, it's already out there and someone is gonna buy it, so I'll take that blue MasterCam. PM sent.

Went to Seneca Rocks this weekend. Was going by myself but two kids decided to day trip on Saturday. We got in some harder roped climbs in the .10 - .11 range.

I stuck around Sat. evening and Sun. and got some much needed soloing in. Nothing harder than .7 but covered a lot of ground, did a little onsigting and climbed a few pitches I had only done roped before. Also chatted up some nice folks on various belay ledges. Had a good time.

When I got there Sat. morning my friends were acting a bit weird and kind of insisting I should climb with them. Talking about routes I should lead and all that. I made a joke about them "conspiring against me having any fun" (soloing) that day but they were suggesting some good routes so I went with it. As the day wore on and I kept trying to head off alone, it became obvious they WERE trying to keep me on a rope. I asked them about it and they were like, 'Yeah, we may have planned that a bit. We don't like you soloing...'

At one time or another, I've had that conversation with most of my partners, friends and family members. I get it. Actually conspiring against me may have crossed the line a little, but I get it.

Hey Brian, is that top route the one I wimped out on a lot when we climbed together?

Did we climb at the bridge buttress? Too many NRG trips between then and now...

We did, and there was a great route with what initially appeared as a thin, sketchy traverse at the start (was actually pretty easy climbing) with a slick stem move or two up in a corner.

I couldn't get past it on lead and was barely able to on TR.


That may have been chockstone, which was the first route we did that day. It's like 25 feet of face climbing and then a hard move up in to an overhanging dihedral, with stemming above that. I seem to remember a short fall at the roof on your part. That's the only route I can think of. I don't believe we got on Where Real Men Dare, which is what he is on in that picture.

I think you're right.

I don't remember it well, but it does look vaguely familiar. I remember there being this thin face at the start that one needs to traverse into, and then one heads straight up.

Any other routes in that area we got on that had a series of horizontal cracks?

That is proly the one. The pro up top is not so great.

that would probably make me not want to climb with them if I had other plans.

I don't think they'll try that again and I did leave at that point and do two routes before it got dark. It's cool. I just didn't expect it, so it worked this one time.

Record setting heat in Albuquerque, 100 degrees all freaking week; at least it's "dry" heat. Like a convection oven, and who doesn't enjoy a good human flesh roast?

Moving up to Santa Fe tomorrow where it's supposed to be only 97. Meaghan will join us late Wednesday for a week. Climbing? Maybe, but did I mention the heat?

No.

That's why I wanted to leave the East: it's not the heat, it's the humidity stupidity.

Although my wife doesn't like getting " Ma'am"ed everywhere.

Sucks... Sorry to hear.

Well, hopefully they keep you on for the decomissioning, though that may not take long since y'all weren't too operational anyway. If not, you can always seek employment down on the navy bases here, else make like migrant and inhabit Washinton or AZ?
Yea, I don't know. They're not going to need many for what they got to do, and most of decomissioning likely to be contracted out.
Don't know what I'll do next. Been here too many years. Stay local, hit the road, relocate. Hard to say. Haven't been looking for work, just seeing what has been coming by. So there appears to be some work out there.
Would be nice to have a small break in between. But with some certainity with where I'll end up. That would be ideal.

WA state for the win. are you in the nuclear business? that's what the husband does.

Ma.... go back to payge one!

crap
Lets try again...
no you got it.
And Wa is deff on the radar. Have friends in Spokane, and yea thats not where Columbia etc is, but its close. Family is here in CA, so who knows. We'll see how the whole thing shakes out.
