If your gear has seen more days on the rock or ice than you have, you might be a brent_e.

Brent, Brent, Brent.

You silly fool, you can't sling a partridge!

Well you could, but they are pretty hard to keep slung, let alone keep in place. They are far to soft anyway. Any slung partridge will be marginal at best.

You need to sling the pair tree.




Back on topic. How many people have a mismatched set of nuts?

Do your nuts hang a little lopsided Brent? :lol:

as you're new to aid, i know that you haven't heard of the partridgehead. You have to paste it in a smaller crack with a hammer, Nate. They wiggle a little bit at first, but after you start wacking them in there, they don't move so much and are bomber. Chouinard fixed, like, 6 partridges on el cap.

The think aboug pear trees is they take a long time to set. approx 11 years. You need to sling the seed really long, then wait a while.

and yes, my nuts are lopsided, but they still work fine, thank you very much. (actually, i do have a full set of one brand - trangos - just so you know!).

New to aid! Pa leeze! I've been pounding steel since you were suckling on your mama's teat.

You don't even have a set of matching aiders! :lol:


You obviously have partridgeheads confused with beaks, which are similar but none the less couldn't be more different. If you used a partridge head in that situation, "paste" would only begin to describe the mess.

In reply to:

You just need to get them started before you even get on the route. Just make sure to keep the roots moist or they won't grab as well when they are set.

I find they are much easier to deal with and far more reliable than partridge can be.

It's good to know you do have a full set of nuts, even though they are lopsided. :lol:

Maybe if you got Val into playing with them she might be able to help you even them out?

they are all lopsided, when you think about it...you have micros on one side (well, you have micros on both side...whole 'nuter story) and then you have your larger nuts on the other. sometimes you keep them on different biners....but let's not get into that.

And they are very likely to attract marmots, which will also chew your rope in half at the same time as eating the P.H.

Miracle Grow

It really doesn't take that long. You can depump, eat lunch, take a nap, look at the topo, then have confidence when you are running it out above. Not to mention the pears you can eat while waiting!

I'll freely admit I have a big set of small nuts.

I try and keep my nuts from getting lopsided. I generally have a double set of the smaller sizes and a single set of the bigger nuts.

Everyone knows it generally takes a bigger set of smaller nuts to do harder routes.

Have you ever lead a sport route on gear?

well, to be honest, i've been working on my posting speed of the last couple months. I figure that if i use mozilla and keep a couple tabs open, i can refresh one with "my topics" and post up quick replies there while i browse the frontpage or other articles with another tab.

and it's easy to the do the "crazy nate" thing....just hover on "url" and it will give you the beta.

and yes, my kung fu is leagues ahead of yours.

I figured out the link part already. I just don't think I want to commit the time to be as good at posting.

Your style of Kung Fu is admirable, but is not the Kung Fu to end all others.

caughtinside, i'll tell the story of that quote.

so, it's february and cold ass outside. It's about 5:30 and I arrive at chossmonkey and granite_grrl's appartment, ready to launch to the daks. Thinking ahead of my writing, this story sucks. But, we're packing the car cuz someone was late (i shouldn't talk! lol), and this woman walks by, looks at me, and says "have a blessed day" and keeps walking.

Nate and I adopted the saying and it found it's way into my sig when chossmonger quoted it.

yup, story sucked.

well

She said "Have a blessed day.".


Brent was just like, :wtf:?

I don't think he quite picked up on what she was saying at first. It came sorta out of no where.

I proceeded to the car with the last of the stuff and told Brent "Have a blessed day." We jumped in the car, Granite_Grrl looking at us like we are from another planet and we drove off into the night.

You're an inventor, right Brent? What does the "e" stand for anyway?


Excuse me!

I'm not Canadian.

At least not yet. :tinfoilhat:

The thread started out as a flame on Brent. Though it has kinda moved away from the original topic because no one except for D.E. wants to play.

I will admit D.E.'s post was a little disturbing.

If anyone wants to get this thread back on track go right ahead.


If you ___________, you might be a brent_e.


Oh, and the "e" is the first letter of his last name.

anyway, I wasn't going to plant the ice axe in her, maybe steinpull on her left nostril and heal hook her left ear, but she wouldn't have been much worse for wear.

Blessed for who! I was told I was going to have to go back to work in Canada that afternoon, and then I dented the front panel of my car from slidding into the guard rail the next morning (while you were harping at me to pull over so you could have a better look at the ice next to the road).

Fun weekend, sure. Blessed.....not bloody likely!

Yeah and you like what you are doing now better than what you were doing before.

And I wasn't harping at you to pull over. I was harping at you to SLOW down before you pulled over.

Sheese, never let a woman drive! :lol:



Maybe I'm just a positive thinker. :lol: But all in all that was a pretty good weekend, things could have been far worse.

You forgot about work. The damage done to your car was quite minor. And in the end Brent's toes are probably okay.

Not to mention, Brent got his first free screw. :shock: :lol: An I got to buy my first pair of $80 mittens!

It's kinda funny. Did she say "blest" or "bless-ed" ??

She said "Have a blessed day.".


Brent was just like, :wtf:?

I don't think he quite picked up on what she was saying at first. It came sorta out of no where.

I was worried she was Jehovah's Witness or something. We almost had the car packed ready to go climb some ice in the Dacks, the last thing we needed was this woman trying to witness to us.

It had been a bad year for ice and we were chomping at the bit to get going. Lucky for her she just kept on walking. Blessing my day as she went by. Brent was reaching for his ice tool and I think he was going to plant it right between her eyes if she would have stopped and held us up.

I proceeded to the car with the last of the stuff and told Brent "Have a blessed day." We jumped in the car, Granite_Grrl looking at us like we are from another planet and we drove off into the night.

And we did have a blessed day, well kinda, more of a weekend than a day. We froze our asses off in the Dacks. Poor Brent froze his toes. But we got in a lot of good climbing. Being the team player I am, I'll surely trade Brent's frozen toes for some good ice. :lol:
:lol: :lol: :lol:

You guys just made my morning. Was that in St.Kitts that you nearly got witnessed or in the Buff Zone?
As for the good ice, it's still here in the Rockies. I may go for a quick solo in K-Country tomorrow before work. The weekend should be great weather for rock but ..... ahh, think I'll head up the icefields parkway for more ice.

I'll give you guys a heads up, I want to head back to Ontario for Christmas this year with the ulterior motive being a trip to the Daks. I'll introduce you to the Bivvy if you're still around those parts. On the other hand, if you head out to Calgary before then, you'll be on ice a lot sooner :wink:

Anyway I'm done raising the CanCon for now so "Have a blessed day".

Grant, you suck!!! :lol: Climbing ice still, and then telling us about it! Have you no decency?

So what time can you pick me up at the airport? :D I can get my ice gear together pretty quick, and if I leave while the Wife is at work she'll be powerless to stop me! :twisted: Bwahahahahaha!



That little story unfolded at our place here in the Bufferzone. I'm not sure if it is all the chemicals in the air or what, but there are some weird people here. Hopefully we'll be going along our merry way soon. I've heard Alberta is nice. Long winters, big ice. Mmmmmmmm, ice.



It snowed Tues. and Wed. here. Didn't really stick, but it was enough to get my hopes up that we were going to miss summer this year and go straight back to winter. But its warming up again. :cry:

By the way, you were supposed to flame Brent. :roll:

The Reverso should be fine. I didn't use it very much. Besides, I think the one I bent was the one for all the food I bought for you when we went to the Daks.

We don't know if the pick was defective yet or not either. Maybe I'm just too strong. :robert:

i read the manual last night for the reverso. looks cool. So you're saying i still owe you money??? Even though i threw you a couple scream aids?!?! EVER THOUGH!!!! :D

it's likely not defective. you likely had it torqued off angle a bit and manked it, like i did with my pick. But hey, at least it wasn't a B-rated.....that thing would be trashed if you did the same move, i'm sure.

No, I was trying to make you not feel so bad. We traded a good piece of gear for a good piece of gear. The other half of the trade was I gave you something that you turned into crap, and you gave me something I turned into, well, technically not crap, but? :lol:

You would almost think you should break the pick rather than bend it though. I could be wrong. I'll ask James.

it's the same steel, though. So if one bends, the other should just bend easier because of the thickness.


if you straighten the pick that you manked, it will likely break next time. You've work hardened the spot that you bent back, and made it brittle.

I would think either would break. T-Rated should be harder to break because it is thicker.

I would think it would be more likely to bend again, then break off from metal fatigue.

We better be careful. Phaedrus might move this into Gear Heads. :lol:

So I heard back from James.

He said BD picks bend before breaking and to pound it back straight. It won't be full strength but it will be okay as long as I'm not climbing something that matters if a pick breaks. He also said I should probably have a "Bridge" set as should you. What we are doing is about the worst thing you can do to a pick.

He said we might be able to spot weld another piece onto the pick without friggin' up the heat treating too bad. He didn't know for sure though.

He also said that the ratings on picks are more or less bullshit. All he uses are B rated and he hasn't broke a pick in years.


Now to get this thread back on track.



If you are going to weld up some super M picks for Nate, you might be a Brent_e. :D

indeed.

and chossy,
I don't know how easy it is to spot weld to something so thick. It might be easier to tig weld a plate on top, a la trango. I might be able to figure out how to heat treat them, too.

what's a "bridge"???


i'll weld up some drytool picks.......100 dollar....

No, I don't think I did.

It would probably be more than 81.50 now. The US dollar has been slipping.

I'll have my chance again.

Besides, if I don't put up routes for you, how are you supposed to practice your drytooling?

I used about $20 worth of hardware the other day just so you could have something to aspire to. :robert:

Now you want to charge me $100 to modify some picks? :?

81.50 is about 98 bucks if the US dollar is at 1.20 cad. I don't know what it's at. I see it as everything in the states being on sale! :lol: Most of the gear i get is from there, so it's nice.

the bufferzone is everywhere, and it's nowhere. it's the place you don't want to be, but can't escape. it's black and white. it's heavy lightness and serious vanity. it's near niagara falls. get a damn map.

You don't have any money to give. A belay slave would be good, but that isn't happening either.

All I really wanted were some mods done to that set of picks.

They even wrote a song about the "Bufferzone"

"On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
'This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the Bufferzone..."

Yeah, those days sucked for us. Actually, I think as a whole the bad american dollar is not good for canada. I think it messes up some of the trade. But i'm no economist! :D

Some things, like gas, are still cheaper for canadians even with the exchange rate.

ha! i don'tk now why i got both purples. I think it's cuz one was in great shape and 25 bucks shipped. the other was 30, or something. really cheap for me. And I like tcu's!

nope, not much money, and not much climbing.

I can likely do the mods to your picks. I don't know what to weld onto them, though. Stainless/chromoly/some other high carbon steel. I don't really have cromoly that I could use (we have some for the racecar....but i can't really steal that!). Got lots of stainless, but it's soft, which actually might be better - more bite in the rock.


to keep the spirit of this thread.

You might be a brent_e if you had a negative balance in your bank account to pay for a new pack.

But wikipedia turns up nothing on bufferzone. The top google hit was an ultimate fighting website!

No desert.

More tollways than highways.

That warm smell ain't colitas, and no I didn't shit myself. It is the petrochemical processing plants up wind.

It certainly isn't Heaven, I think it must be Hell.

Hopefully I can leave! :shock:

Ah Betty, you have all these Canadians asking to climb at the Gunks with you, and then we dissapear for a while. Still want to head down there sometime with you, talked with Brent and he's keen too (if he'll ever take a full weekend off). We'll just get Mr. Monkey on board and pick you up on the way (hopfully we'll all fit in my car!).

Oh calm down now. I dated a Canadian once before- and vowed never to do so again. I ain't got any of *those* kind of plans. I was was presuming that you would be with granite_grrl and chossmonkey, so I'd met the 3 of you in a dark booth in the back.

And I do have exams, now, but next month in May, which isn't that far away I will be back, exam free and ready to play!!! Better get on the calendar soon, my schedule fills up fast!

Edited to say: Granite_Grrl- if Mr. Wanker (aka "Brent-e") won't take a weekend off to go climbing in the Gunks, my ex and I are back together, so barring he doesn't have to work on any given weekend, he can meet us in the Gunks. FWIW

If you assume all the ladies want you and they really don't, you might be a brent_e :boring:

I ain't got any of *those* kind of plans. I was was presuming that you would be with granite_grrl and chossmonkey, so I'd met the 3 of you in a dark booth in the back.

Kinky. :D


Mrrrrroooow!



Now just how dark is this booth? I really have no desire to see Brent's hairy ass. :shock:<---- Should be a puking smiley.



In reply to:
Oh calm down now. I dated a Canadian once before- and vowed never to do so again.

Pretty disappointing aren't they?

There is a reason Granite_Grrl married an American, and it wasn't to immigrate.

I've heard that it has something to do with the long cold winters they have in Canada. The extended cold during puberty leads to permanent shrinkage or something.


:lol:



In reply to:
my SO is Significant! I like her. I think i'll keep her (if she lets me).

How significant can she be if you don't even know if she'll keep you? Truthfully I have a hard time trusting someone who doesn't climb ice. :twisted:

don't you think we would split up in pairs somehow, Nate??? :shock: Like, maybe, you shouldn't have to look at my hairy ass, cuz you would be with your wife??? Do you have a crush on me?????

good one, Nate. She's fairly significant. We've actually talked about "the thing that is not to be mentioned too soon else to freak her and me out a bit." And I think i'm stuck with her! (thankfully, she is a good woman who i find very attractive so we're good).

maybe next year we can try some ice?! :lol:

Now if we split up how would that be kinky? Group of 4=kinky. My wife and I, well okay, I guess it can still get pretty kinky. :oops: But that's not the point. :roll:

That's just what women tell guys with small bananas, as to not hurt there feelings.

Honestly why would CB be so turned off by Canadian men and GG had to find someone out of the country?

I'd say its likely the Canadians they knew didn't know how to use their small banana. Not to say you are in the same banana boat as every Canadian man. It was just a generalization.

What? You are merging racks? :shock:

I don't think Rebecca and I have really fully worked out the merger of our racks. That is why it is important I get a new #0 TCU soon to replace the one I broke of Rebecca's.

It takes more than being a good person and good looks to make things work out long term.

Hmm, I am doing more internet exploration of this mysterious and dark New York place.

Ok, I see Niagra county (location of the much feared Bufferzone) and I see Seneca County, which Christa claims is miles from any real rock. Which county are the gunks in? Orange?

And when are you moving out of the Zone, and where to?

Not quite as far south as Orange County, they're in Ulster County. Either way you slice, they are quite a haul from Seneca and/or Niagra counties.

Where to you move from when you move out of the Buffer Zone???

To anywhere that has better closer climbing!!!

Who is this,.... Christa? :shock: <---Imagine this face with one eye closed and a big eyebrow all crinkled squinting at you.

There is a ton of rock in the Niagara Gorge, it gets some sweet ice too, but pretty illegal I hear. Part is State Park which is illegal, and part is city, I'm assuming it's illegal since nobody has been putting up routes. Though I am tempted to go ask to see for sure. If I was to be damned here much longer I might try and sell the tourism angle to the powers that be. This is a dead or at least dying area.

The Gunks are just a short 5 1/2 hour drive east of here. It is pretty much north of NYC. Find New Paltz on the map and you are pretty close.

There is legal slimestone bouldering just across the border in Canada. It is in the Gorge. Climbing with a rope is illegal though. Go figure. The next closest stuff is just out of Toronto, 1 1/2 hours away.

In reply to:

ASAP. Probably just across the border though for the time being. Then hopefully to Calgary by winter. :D Mmmmm, Calgary. Mmmmmm, ice. Galgalgalgalga. Sorry I was just having a moment. :oops:

I did figure it out on my own. It's not like it says right on your profile. You need to dig around a little.


You should be pretty set when the ice comes around. Being near the Finger Lakes and all. Low profile but lots of it, isn't there?

Umm... well yes and no, there is a good amount of decent ice around...especially just down the road in Ithaca, HOWEVER, most of it is insanely illegal because its all on state park land. So I'm still left driving to the Catskills or the Daks for decent ice. :boring:

Technically we're not actually in Buffalo, we're in Tonawanda.....which may actually be worse than Buffalo :? .

Moving, ASAP. But we've got this nasty immigration issue, seeing as Nathan and I like living together and would like to remain in the same country. Lots of work for both Carpenters and Engineers out near Calgary, so we'll likely head there.

I'll give you a toprope anytime you want to go climbing. :robert:



What are you some sort of sally? Your back is supposed to hurt from shoveling not your hand. Well, maybe your hand if you didn't wear gloves and you got a big blister on the palm. But you shouldn't have to worry about that because all of the :boring: you do instead of climbing. :lol:

my back is strong, chossy. My hand is feeling a bit better today, and the lump is getting smaller. Weird.

Hey, we're going into algonquin park in a couple weeks. I should get a picture of the very large, likely virgin, chunk of granite that we pass. I think climbing is illegal in there, but this is a sweet piece of rock!

I only made a couple posts over the weekend, so, maybe.... It scares me a bit, cuz my dad had something like this, and now he has arthritis so bad that they have to fuze his wrist.

In reply to:

true, but I don't know if anyone would bother you there. No one would see you and we would camp legally. I don't know that, if you were caught, a ranger would bother you too much. But, that is a crappy attitude to have, isn't it?

the rock has been on my mind for a long time. it's Granite, it's reasonably large, and it has potential. It would be really really cool! But, it's hard to get to. there is a large swamp that has to be crossed and a mile or so of tough terrain. Would definitely be worth it.

And when are you moving out of the Zone, and where to?

ASAP. Probably just across the border though for the time being. Then hopefully to Calgary by winter. :D Mmmmm, Calgary. Mmmmmm, ice. Galgalgalgalga. Sorry I was just having a moment. :oops:
That reminds me, I should go ice climbing again this weekend. I spent Easter weekend exploring the rock around here.
:twisted: Yep thet's the sound of me rubbing again. FWIW though, a lot of the sun exposed hard stuff has fallen down and the avi hazard was high lately but next weekend should be OK with a little searching.
Still better than the BufferZone tho' :P

I lost the software to upload pics from my camera when I had to reformat my 'puter. Left the damm discs in ON. Haven't tried looking for the drivers online yet.

You might be a Brent_E if you want to torment yourself with pics of what you're not climbing.




How much searching.... not much. Just find north facing or deep gulleys. I saw a few blue icefalls along the Parkway weekend before last, had lunch sitting in the sun, climbed a southwest facing fall that even with a ton of sun-rot was fun, saw a little snow fall, and had a pleasant drive back with daylight to spare.
The choice is getting less though :(

I spent my Easter weekend sweating my balls off down at the Red. I guess that was better than sweating my balls off digging ditches and wrecking my hand like Brent did.

Here is "some other stuff". 220' total route length. 70'-80' of steep climbing. This is about the easiest line on a wall several hundred yards long. The shitty part is that it was only in for about three weeks this year.

Matt Samet wrote a piece about the "Sub-Man" in one of the climbing rags a few years back. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Basically you belay me, spray for me, do what ever. In exchange for the privilege of getting to hang out with me. :lol:

Oh, and I'll probably do some rope gunning for you if you do a really good job, just not on anything that will wear me out for my proj. :D



Cleaning that would be a major bitch. Probably need to aid it. I think there are a bunch of fixed nuts on it though, that should help a little.

yeah. Is there a way you can strengthen that size without getting on it? I doubt it - probably just have to gun it and do climbs like that (i guess crack climbing isn't like doing pullups on a hangboard).

It's called technique. If you are super strong it is easier to get by. But the best solution is practice, practice, practice.

It really isn't a pump thing for me as much as a security issue. Though over gripping does quickly lead to a bad pump. I'm getting better. I need to go run laps on Assembly Line at the Tower. That route felt harder than most of the 11's I did out there because it is the "perfect" bad size for me and flaring enough that you can't cheat and grab the edge.

It's closed for falcon nesting now but should be open by the time we get out there mid July. :D

This is generally true. In fact, I hear it all the time. "But Caughtinside, you're much too young and good looking to be an aid climber!" This is the case, but I out of action for a couple months recently with a finger injury.

Fearing to go too long without rock, I took to aiding at the local crack scene. Shit is slow, yo. Plus, I only had one daisy and one aider at the time. The rest was a hodge podge of knotted slings and webbing. Let me tell you, standing in your makeshift aider made out of your knotted 10mm double length sling sucks donkey balls!

And I already have a grigri for self belay, I just wanted to mess around with a new device. But brent wouldn't part with it for the price I offered, which was so low as to be insulting. Oh well!

Fair enough. Aid is actually a pretty good skill to have. Why just the other week I had to aid a line to bolt it.

I actually just got done ordering a new #0 TCU for MRS. Monkey to replace the one of hers I destroyed. :?

You two should get together and then you could have one whole set of aiders! You really should have two sets though.

Mr. Chossmonkey,

Since you bolt routes as well, and like myself have an affinity for choss, have a look at these:

The work:

The reward!
http://www.rockclimbing.com/...p.cgi?Detailed=43191

This is Aloha Patrol, a 4 pitch sport line in CA me and a bud put up. Super route, slightly sandbagged, sweet choss city! Plus, I'm shaking like a fiend in that photo to try to hang out while my buddy got the shot. There's a funnier one, I'll see if I can find it.

oh, you always gotta put route names in italics, it lends a certain mystique.

Howler Monkey

http://www.rockclimbing.com/...p.cgi?Detailed=41607

Killer pull over bulge, no feet. We named it Howler Monkey, because we had just finished bolting it, and this dude hikes up this 100 yard talus slope just to our left, about 30 feet. We saw him, but he didn't see us.

Thinking he's alone in the wilderness, and having conquered the slope, he let out a long and primal bellow, that had us totally cracking up. He was a bit sheepish after he noticed we were hanging around.

About as sick as .10d gets.

Sometimes top down just doesn't work. The "top" of the route is the underside of a big roof. A big extension ladder would have worked nicely though.


In reply to:
Sorry to hear about that one. Again, top down.

Actually I could have avoided this if I would have been actually bolting as I climbed it the first time. I just wasn't quite sure where the best line would go and I had a lot of time to kill. So I aided it first then bolted it.

Or is it a 12 month off season? :?

Those January pics look a little too warm for ice to form.

Actually when I lived in WI we could get out in Feb. and climb in a T-shirt on occasion. Though that wasn't very reliable warm. Once I had to shovel a foot of snow to clear an area at the bottom of a route. :lol:

That was before I learned the ways of the darkside though. Warm winters,.....no thank you. Calgary should be nice, only a 7 month or so off season.

She went to the Dr. yesterday to see about getting LASIK.



The pins should be here tomorrow. When do you think you'll be able to do the mods? Where would you do it? I could come over someday while she's at work and we could work on them.

man, i won't have time for a bit (3 weeks, maybe). like i said, i'm gone this weekend for 5 days, then I have to build that racecar. So, it'll be a bit. Maybe we can work on them somehow after I get home.

Got a lot on my plate, though.

She wouldn't probably be able to have the laser surgery. She'd have to have a different one because of the way her eyes are.

Still under laser surgery, but its PRK instead of Lasik. That's where they reshape the surface instead of cutting a flap. :shudder: I get the hebly-jeblies when I think about someone cutting my eye balls.

Oh another note they dialated my pupils to the size of sausers, stayed like that all day. Couldn't focus on stuff close....I was wanting bifocals!

Anyway Brent, post pics of the car if you can, sounds like a super cool project.

I'll try and get some good pictures of it when it's done. It should look pretty neat. The sidepods that we're working on right now are going to be naked carbon fiber and will contain all the carbon ducting that we designed and built. It's nice to teach these guys on the team about how to use this stuff, and i'm learning a lot myself, too (about how to teach, as well as how to build!). We really face a lot of challenges because we don't have the funding to get the proper equipment, so we have to improvise so much - it really works the grey matter. I will be really happy to post some of the images when we're done. I'm proud of all the work that myself and the team has done.

That was before I learned the ways of the darkside though. Warm winters,.....no thank you. Calgary should be nice, only a 7 month or so off season.
Actually Calgary was nicely mild this winter but the mountains were still nicely cool. And as for a 7 month off season... only if you're a wuss. Climbing starts in October albeit sketchy and although it's pretty warm right now (warm enough for rock) when it chills out again, I'm off for more ice. I was on rock at Easter, and ice again last week.
I'm tellin yer man, it's still ice season here. A 5 month off season is all you have to endure.
I still have to get out to Professor Falls this winter, and that's in Banff. There's even more ice up on the Icefields Parkway, even if some has fallen down.... well quite a bit. The weeping wall isn't in anymore unless you're crazy.

And you might be a Brent_E if you talk about building cars on a rockclimbing website.

Hmmm.

If you want to stretch your imagination, we'll be drytooling here all summer long. I've actually been spending more time drytooling on the home wall than I have been using it for bouldering. :lol:


It will be nice to get on some ice next winter though.

Did I tell you about the steinpull I made on the wall? So far it is holding up really well. I've been really cranking on it too.





I have one set of the pins now. The other is on back order for a few more days.

That new TCU is pretty sweet too.

yeah, i know! they look great. and are lighter, too (although it doesn't really matter to me).

I have to get to mec. need a couple more racking + rope end biners (thanks again for the ones you and Rebecca gave me) and some slings. I'm thinking i'm going to get those nifty onsite supertiny slings. they're like the mammut but not as nice (but cheaper).

Is that a threat to eventually go climbing or are you buying early for your X-mas decorating?

Hey now, those are organically grown fruits, flakes and nuts. And naturally, I would expect any self respecting canadians to engage in 355ml steinpulls, but that is compatible with a day of climbing.

Is anything real in California? Well, I'm really 30 miles from some fun choss, and really less than 4 hours from a little spot called yosemite.

Hah... tell a lie about the truth and say you're telling the truth about the lie then people won't think you're telling the truth about the lie and they'll accuse you of lying about the lie instead of telling the truth about the lie and your reputation of truth will be saved from the lie because you can only lie about the truth instead of the lie which in actual fact you lied about in the first place which makes it the truth.

........and if you can find time to figure that one out then you may be a Brent_E. :tinfoilhat:

I can, and I climbed less than twenty routes so I may be a Brent_E although I did climb more than 20ft each time so cumulatively I may not be a Brent_E. :nono:

It was a good trip. Van broke down on the way out, but the hike in and out wasn't bad, and the fishing and weather were really good. I even got a tan! (albeit, uneven). Got a couple decent size speckled trout, too!!!

So I should take that as, "I'll be too busy this weekend AGAIN, to do something as silly as climbing."? :roll:


And just how does Val feel about you having a "Ladyfriend" on the side? :lol:

What about your buddy that is going to the midwest? :(

Wanna help us move? It would only be for a day. I'm sure we could make it worth your time.

Also, I could use a belay bitch. The pay is low, but you would get to climb some. Mainly to hang the draws, and clean gear. :D

Can't, can't, can't.

Don't you know its easier and quicker to say can rather than can't? Can't is so negative to. Its self limiting talk I tell you. With an attitude like that how will you ever achieve anything?

I've come up with a number of nice summer jobs. Is there no pleasing you?

Not enough glamor?

I still think you should see about working for Frank. Big whoopty do you won't get to see yer sweety for a while. I won't be seeing my wife much this summer since I'll be away working. Besides, Val could probably go too.

like i said, not me. And sadly Val has to stay in kingston this summer - has to. As mentioned, I appreciate the offers and suggestions, but i'll have to find something closer to home that will allow me to put some money in the bank. school is bloody expensive and i'm getting cut off this year from parental funding, so life will be a bit harder (i know...."whine whine whine" cut off, blah blah blah....but it's hard for me to work during the school year so i need the cash now).

Nate,
thanks for defending me on that other thread about the handles. I read it quickly today. Appreciate it, man. I was actually thinking about a better way to mass produce these things as a summer project. Might be possible. I just need to find some CAD wizzard to make stuff up for me!

Ack, no funding, no coop work terms, no working through the school year? Yeah, I hope you get a job that'll pay well over the summer. Its hard to make enough money to live off for a year when you only get to work for 3 months......I mean, how will you be able to continue to buy gear off the internet?!

So that actually means you will have more time for climbing! No parental funding= No heavy weight to hold over your head to make you do stuff. :twisted:

Brent is a pretty good looking guy. I bet he could pimp himself out and only have to work a couple of weekend nights a month. :P

I probably won't be climbing much. I'll be working. :?


The climbing in the miwest has treated me pretty well though. Dispite being from there I still turned out pretty :robert:.

One of the last times we were in the Gunks we were talking to the Julie woman who seems to be in every Gunks picture. She asked where I was from and she was like :wtf: when I told her I was from WI. She seemed pretty surprised that people from WI could go to the Gunks and actually hold there own.

I'm looking forward to climbing on real rock too for once in a friggin' long time.... I think it was November just before I left Aus. I've spent way too long training at the rock wall here on campus.... My girl and I are heading to The New for a few days at the very end of May. It's gunna be awesome to see her again.

I wouldn't mind an alien or three....

I lifted lots of boxes. Does moving a climbing wall count as climbing?

I bootied an Alien out at the Gunks last fall. It was all old and worn out though. It hadn't been hacked on yet by people who don't know how to liberate stuck cams, it was just old.

In one day at RR I found a #3 Camalot with a Nuetrino biner, #1 Flex Friend a nut, two Petzl biners, some new webbing, a nice climbing quick link, and a liter of water. All in exellent condition. The water hadn't yet been opened and we were parched, it was a very welcome find. :D

You might be a caughtinside if you have no idea what you're missing.

You might be a Brent_E if you're a mechanic in a climbing forum, claiming to have tried some bouldering.

You might be a chossmonkey if you need to get yourself out to Alberta to give darkside a belay on ice when no one else is still interested in ice "because it's rock season" and he really really wants to go looking for ice up on the Icefields Parkway and there is still rotten falling down ice in Grassi Lakes lowdown in Canmore so there has to be climbable ice up high or in the north facing places or in the deeper gullies or somewhere because he can feel it in his bones and just knows there is some and really really wants to go ice climbing again because he hasn't been ice climbing in like three or four or forever more weeks now.

You might be a darkside if you're a lost cause.

That may be true, but please don't clue me in! You might be like caughtinside if you live less than 3 hours from Yosemite valley, 30 minutes from the local pile, and a lifetime of rock in a 2 hour radius. I don't have the time/money for another hobby.

You know what they say is the most critical piece of gear for a california ice climber? A really fast car!

By the way, Grant, with both you and Nathan gone I see myself having issues going away every weekend I have avaliable, this stupid shift work is messing up my climbing chi.

You might be a Brent E if you have a partner like Rebecca, willing to go away almost every weekend and you don't take advantage of it (common Brent, you know you want to head to the Gunks May 27-28th).

No fighting for attention needed - I've done threesomes before :shock: oh hang on though, this isn't the coffee shop thread is it :roll:

I'm still up for climbing on weekends, I just don't have an airplane handy, do you? In fact I'm thinking my car may be on it's way to dying :evil: maybe a few more climbing days in it yet though.

Gunks for May Long, don't be a total mechanic there Brent :P I'll be heading to Skaha myself mixing it up with a little bolt clipping and a little gear fondling.




PS - what's this if/when sh|t? I'm counting on you two to head out here by fall latest so we can resurrect the weekend adventures and start the new ice addiction display.

Grant buddy, I hate to tell you but the weather last night (while you were working) was beyond gorgeous. We were climbing in the shade and the temprature was PERFECT. I think the ice season is finished. ;-)

You might be a darkside if you think that you can still climb ice in the +30 weather we are having.

You might be a jumpingrock if you found a way to do 6 pitches of bolt clipping on superb rock after work yesterday.

See now David, that's why you are an ice newb and I'm going ice climbing the weekend after May long. I will find some, I will climb it, I will be happy - regardless of the conditions. It may be soft, easy swinging, hero ice or it may be aerated rotten ice that scares the bejeebus out of me. I will love it all the same.

Did I mention considering buying some Monsters I saw on sale?

BTW Icefields Parkway is still getting sub zero temps at night :D

Heh as long as you are happy of course :-) I'm thinking about heading up "The Great Choss Pile" weekend after may long. Been too long since I challanged the beast to kill me.

whoa....hello peoples. been a while since i've visited this little thread!

update:

went to michigan last week for the FSAE competition. However, we had a little issue...on the final dyno run before the race just before we were going to assemble the car, we melted the piston. I say "we," however, i wasn't there to witness (kingston). So, it was bust this year. The guys decided to use this car next year due to time and money constraints which didn't allow us to get a new piston/engine or hone the engine before we had to leave. It's a damn shame, to say the least. A damn shame. looks like we're going to try and do another car this year and use the current one as backup. Anybody know of anyone with a couple CBR 600 Hondas they want to part with?

anyway, i'm up for some climbing this week but i don't know who is around. I think rebecca took off and nate is also gone. anybody up for the glen? or maybe a night trip to nemo?

and does anyone want to sponsor a car team!? :lol:

Brent, just got back tonight. Had fun at Nathan's sister's wedding....but am I glad that i didn't have one like that! She was a total stress ball. Nathan is still out in MN, I miss him already :cry: :cry: .

So, you're doing another car....for this year? wtf? How the hell will I ever get you out to climb now?

You may be a brent_e if you'll be stuck in a garage all summer instead of out on the cliffs!

If you are working on another car while your buddy Nate is within walking distance of the Tower, you might be a Brent_e. :lol:

hey Nate, hi Rebecca,
yeah, hopefully another car for this year. I want to build it for this coming year but we have a backup plan and car incase it doesn't get built. Although i wish we didn't because it's going to be real hard getting people moving on this one. I wish it was like a job and people could get fired for not pulling their weight, but alas.

hope stuff is going well for you, Nate. I hope you get some good climbing in and get some pictures!

Rebecca, I'd like to see you soon! if you are free this weekend I would definitely be up for some climbing. it'll have to be after noon, though. Give me a day (hopefully weather permits) and we'll work with that!

finally got a job! it's only for a few more days, though. Interlock driveway for my previous boss. I'm WAY out of shape for that!

Brent, I'm on day shift next week. I want to visit my uncle on Thusday, but other than that I'm free. You wanna do some drytooling at Jordon? Or we could just go for dinner.

Let me know, just shoot me a PM.

Not too shabby. My buddy Ward was out here where were you?

I climbed the last four days. I got on a pretty hard route today. 25 pieces of gear I used on it, orange Metolius and smaller. It was hard!

what? Its not like you're around to flirt with me. I've gotta get attention from somewhere :twisted: . And while the cat is very excited about me coming home from the weekend, it just isn't cutting it :P

Brent, Bon Echo was pretty rad. Hope we get up there some time this summer, I think you'd really enjoy it.

Ahhhhh I like Bon Echo; pity I can't make it there this summer. Oh well, I'll just have to try for the Bugaboos instead. Little bit of a difference in the approach though :shock:

:( Well I think I may have to call it a day. You see I went ice climbing yesterday and the choices are getting limited now. I was happy to have made it a round 40 days on ice but maybe I'll consider some alpine ice a little later. Until then it's back to rock.

You may be a Brent_E if you are missing out on Rockies ice, Devils Tower rock, and Bon Echo approaches. :P

4 months to ice season :twisted:

yes, I am a busy bee. sucks.

Seems as though your wife and I have a date for the weekend after next, though. Bon Echo. Mosquitos + Blackflies. A cramped and hot tent. Sounds like good fun!


I should have said hi to you tonight on the fone, Nate. :lol: Sorry. How's the house going??? We're doing interlock right now and it's getting FREAKIN hot. man. hot.

talk soon

Sheesh man, you've got the mosquitos and the blackfly but yet you still want more Bugs :twisted:

You might be a Brent_E if you have temps in the 30's instead of chasing the sun in the teens in the Rockies.

You might be a Darkside if you have to work afternoon shift instead of going climbing with your roomates.

You might be a Brent_E if it's fully summer heat temps and you are still talking about climbing NEXT weekend, always with the NEXT weekend. :P
