Ha ha ha! Very excellent invitation.

Rebecca T. and I will be climbing that Saturday. If we ever figure out how to get to the party we'll drop by. She didn't make it to Cindy's of course.

I think my friend crankenstein and I are going to stay in town and hit Rincon, West Ridge, or something like that. Hope it is warm, too. We got out and climbed in Eldo on Monday after work and it was nice even in the shade.

josh, thanks for the heads up!
as mushroomcloud_2 would say: "say something nice" you're not an idiot.

anyway... IF the snow does fall, it looks like it'll melt off pretty fast. what do folks think?

What if I said I was a knucklehead??? That's at least more nice while still pointing out that I'm a spelling/grammatical/computer idiot....right?

Makes me not feel bad about being "that guy" that retires gear long before most people.

The sky is falling and sky is falling. What are we going to do? The sky is falling.

I know what to do, quit climbing. It is just not safe enough. The gear is failing.

To make it safer for you all please send me all you skinny slings. I don't want any one getting hurt.

Is it just me, or does wet limestone not sound that appealing?

Oh well, one season ends, another begins
(sound of crampons being sharpened) :twisted:

I've never actually climbed on it. What's the problem with it? I just know it's calling for great climbing weather and I'm excited to clip some bolts.

I think the point is that ANY sort of wet rock doesn't sound appealing.

Weather looks to be pretty good fo rthe weekend. trick is getting to Canon City!

Do you think Shelf will be wet? Also is there some odd difficutly getting there (4wd roads or somthings)? 65 and sunny seems like straightforward good climbing weather, but I'm really new to the area. Will there be that much runoff from the snow? If it's bad i guess i'll be going back to Boulder Canyon again.
