Apparently people like to listen to music on walls, i never have had the foresight to pack anything

so two questions,

1> what tunes do you pack

2> in this wonderful era of technology what do you play tunes on.

As far as #1 it's whatever I like the dr doom punk approach or a little gritty techno but if i had the dough i'd get one of those mp3 players from apple and pack it with every song i own, i feel that would be the best weight to variety option

anyone else?

With the permission of whoever I am climbing with lol, it depends on my mood! I like anything fast... so I really can't awnser that.. the main think I listen too are homemade CD's that end up sounding something like what I am imagining the Charlies Angels sound track to be.. with Prodogy SOME Destiny Child.. ect..

BUT I CAN tell you what I don't listen too!!! I love country, but it's not for climbing! Jewl.. Savage Garden... anything soft and nice! I am not there to be soft and nice.. it's rock for petes sake! the main think I listen too are homemade

I listen to them on a old fashon 8 D sized battery boom box..

I have this big honkin' loud ghetto blaster - I think it cranks out about 20 watts. You can easily hear it a mile away or more.

It's all padded up with blue closed-cell foam and duct tape.

My theme song at sunset is You Shook Me All Night Long by AC-DC - I've got all their CDs.

I play The Who, I love to sing along with Monty Python, and then there's always Bob and Doug McKenzie, eh?

When I get really scared, I put in this Rage Against the Machine CD - "Fight the war, f*ck the norm!"

I believe I just might have a new tune after this weekend ... stay tuned....

Last fall, when I played my "theme song" in Camp 4 just at dusk, within five minutes, there were three separate parties who all came over to say "hi" and tell me they enjoyed the tunes on the wall.

The conversations usually started out, "oh, YOU'RE the one.... we saw your portaledge up there! It looks like a Canadian flag."

"It's not a flag, dude - it's a Big Wall Crab, eh?

I'm not sure how this one is going to go over, but I'm going to blast the opera, La Nozze de Figaro, at all those wall heathens.

AC DC is definitely the way to go!! Hey Pete, you remember when you were soloing on ZM and we were on Zodiac? After you played Back in Black every evening, i came straight back to the UK and bought the live album - top stuff!!
