Got out yes..... but not so much for me but my daughter. Took a good long hike. She did some bouldering along the way. She shocked the hell out of me when she pulled herself up on these little crimpers. :shock:

By the time we got back to the house she dropped down to her knees in the front yard and told me to carry her.

Yeah, 3:00 A.M. That's the hours of the restaurant business. It doesn't help that my commute is approx. an hour.

Climb on!

Dudemanbu and myself threw down on Friday, he led this henious 5.8 variation on this sandbagged 5.4, it was nuts, half way up following it, I burst into tears, and I wasn't even leading, he has one cool head.
Later...
we sent some crazy unrecorded boulder problems in the woods south of Main Cliff. I recorded them in the rc.com guide, but I haven't seen anything about them anywhere else. Some good lines, some chossy garbage. Go check it out.

The only reason he cried was because of the 40 mile an hour winds and 37 degree temperature. He was racing as quickly as possible while cleaning to make sure he got to the top before i went hypothermic.

Anyone up for climbing tomorrow (sunday) on some traprock?

Good thing you didn't know you were on autoblock till you got to the top.

Wish I saw your post earlier, Dudemanbu, myself and Chris(dunno his username) were at Ragged in the afternoon. Good times, sorry we didn't get in touch with you.

Tuesday afternoon SOMETHING is going on. Maybe bouldering at 7 falls, maybe something else, I dunno
You should come.

I'm not exactly sure where pinnacle rock is. I'd like to go, and if someone could put up directions that'd be great.

i don't really go down that far south very often. i live in the valley and i try to stay around here for most weekends....although i do make trips once a month or so to just about anywhere. if anyone is planning something cool pm me and i will probably be down for the session.

major climbing goin' on last week
Tuesday was great at Pinnacle, and Thursday a few of us headed over to Ragged.
Dudemanbu onsighted the most sandbagged climb this side of the Mississippi, and I continue finishing off climbs that I have previously retreated.
Noseblob got a good sampling of what CT had to offer, the good and the bad, hope he had a good time.
It was great.
you should have been there

again,
this tuesday Dudemanbu and myself were too stupid to realize the weather was too crappy to climb
we did some more bouldering around Main Face at Ragged. The problems were dirty, but fun.
Its snowing today, maybe I should get my ice tools back out.
