I swear I haven't been shunning you guys. Not sure if you know my living situation, but I'm in Red Deer (or Banff, or Rimbey, or some other weird rural town in Alberta) most weekdays. This week I'm actually in Calgary, but already have plans for this evening. If it wraps up in time, I'll stop by and say hello.

Maybe if David and Emilie bring Settlers...

Settlers to beer night? I can only imagine a disaster if that were to occur. I'm thinking about bringing bang one of these nights. I think that would be more suited for the beer environment. However, send me an e-mail if you want to set up a board game night. We have some other pretty cool options as well.

Okay, if not Settlers, how about Dutch blitz? Or spoons? Although I guess that could also be bad. In any case all board games will have to wait until next week after my licensing exam.

the_climber, good guess. I'm doing a residency in rural medicine.

I guessed that because one of my climbing partners is a Rural Doc and he's always bounced around Northern Onterrible, Alberta, and the NWT exactly how you were describing.

I think we ran into eachother when I was coming down from R&D last year about this time.

Laugh

I spend more on food for that dog a month than I do for myself. I wouldn't put my partners though riding in the back of the 4Runner with Harrison after feeding him something as rich as a pork chop.Crazy

Back to the Timbits, you should see how excited he gets when he sees a Timmy's sign. Even funnier when it's warm enough to have the top off the 4Runner and he tries to stick his head in the Drive Thru window.

Hey, Thunder Bay is not all bad. Good ice climbing around there. I considered moving there. Briefly.

Hmm, I wasn't anywhere near R&D last year so I don't think we've met before...

Oh, and Thunder Bay... hahaha he wasn't even near Thunder bay, more like Red Lake and the communities north of there. He's also up in Nunavut(sp?) a lot too. But yes they have some good ice around there, so I hear.

In light of this Wednesday being Halloween, what does everyone think about bumping the pub night to Thursday just for this week then back to the usual Wednesday night next week.

That's the real reason we're moving pub night, everyone will be busy doing the 5.4 variation of "Unnamed" on Wednesday.

Anyone want to help carry a 12' diameter styrofoam Pumkin up the approach? I'll need someone else to help carry the remote control unit's and batteries, but I'l carry the detonators myself.








Sure, I'm in for Thursdays at Molly's

EXTREME 5.4 CLIMBERS TRIP REPORT - LOVER'S LEAP

Well, as promised, Cathy and I visited Lover's leap in lovely northern Cailfornia this weekend. The climbing was fantastic, on semi-bomber Cali granite (and you know, it is a lot different then our granite!)

Two routes (3 pitches each) were climbed: The Knapsack (5.4+) and Deception Corner (5.4++), both on the Hogsback (a dome in front of the leap-proper). Plans were made for a future climb on Corregation corner (5.4+++) and Traveler's Buttress (5.4+++++) at a future date.

Photos, below.... and if you need beta for the leap, we can help.

The hellish approch:


Cathy leads the 3rd (Crux) pitch of Knapsack Crack (5.4+)


Cathy preps for her bold lead of the first pitch of Deception Corner (5.4++)


Cathy follows the creepy traverse (5.4, but felt like it deserved a few +++ due to creepiness!) at the top of the second pitch of deception corner.

Ya know the little brats will be full o' swag by 8-ish but I'm guessing no one is going tonight now. Tomorrow it will have to be but I have something to point out. The last time we were at Molly's it was loud, busy, and Thursday. That's why we moved to Wednesdays. So how about somewhere a little quieter where we can chat, not shout? I'll be staying in bed rather than shouting.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to bed as it seems tonight is not pub night after all. If I'm wrong, then someone will have to call the house and wake me, I left my cell phone at work this morning.

Brian - ice Sunday? sure, I'm in.
I may go conditions checking Saturday but if anyone wants to climb - call or e-mail me.

You're right..Thursday's, noise, busy, but Brian has shares in Molly's or something I think, because it always his first *pub-of-choice*.

We'd probably be better off to "try" and get some seats in a quiet[er] area, (if that's possible) by showing up closer to 8:00'ish then, 9:00'ish ?

I'll be going for 8:00, hopefully somebody else will too!

You know I'm in for that early star tto the drinking. Hey, if there is one thing I learned at Mount Royal College it's that even 5:30am isn't too early to crack a beer.... mind you if I was awake at 5:30am it usually ment that I was still going strong from the night before.
