I had quite the exciting day of climbing. Climbed a route going for the second ascent that hadn't been climbed in at least 2 and a half years. Was super exciting! Most of the holds had nice little pebbles sitting on them, so I had to dust as I climbed. And getting to the chains repelled me several times. I think I whipped probably 5 times trying to clip the chains. Now it is clean and ready to be sent next trip.

Sweet! That's cool. what's the grade?

I see what you did there.

If the Good Lord smiles on me once more I'll be off to Sespe Gorge and Pine Mountain over the weekend of Oct 10/11.

My marine buddy Tim from church is jonsing to go. Didn't take even a sec to say yes to a weekend of climbing. He was so excited, he invited Hector, our mutual freind from church. And Hector is jonsing to go. So it kind of all worked out, as I had to tell my wife that I kind of have to go now, the guys are really excited. Wink I like Hector, he's a real good guy, but he's never done multi pitch. I've also never shown him how to rap. We'll see how he does. Shocked But this way Tim will have to drag the second rope behind him to bring up Hector. Sly

Anyrate, I'm excited to head out.

Edit since I couldn't spell Tim's name right Pirate

Mad

Hope it holds out for you.
Couple weekends ago I was in NC on business and it was supposed to rain over the weekend when I was planning on sight seeing. But it turned out nice, very nice.
I don't know if I've written the trip up here or not.

Wink I like Hector, he's a real good guy, but he's never done multi pitch. I've also never shown him how to rap. We'll see how he does. Shocked But this way Tim will have to drag the second rope behind him to bring up Hector. Sly

Anyrate, I'm excited to head out.

Sweet. Sounds like a good time. It's always fun when you get out with folks you haven't climbed with for a bit.

Yes, and we're camping w/o the families to boot. I think I'll make it Tim's job to bring the beer.

Always a good plan. But you've gotta be sure you can trust him to bring good stuff. Do you trust him? If you're waivering, you might want to drop a few subtle hints just to be sure.

I did tree root 5.5 about 18 years ago. Looking foward to doing it again. I believe it was my first multi pitch. With a 50M rope it was 3 pitches. Last pitch being short.

Two years ago I did Ending Crack, 5.7. A great finger to hands crack, but with foot holds on the face.

Anyrate, none of the pitches are short enough to rap with one rope, so I'll break out my lightly used but old Mammot 11 for the tag line and bringing up the 3rd.

Actually, when I first climbed there, it was bolt free. As the rock takes pro well. But the bolts make for nice anchors for rapping off. The tradional descent is down the gully in the left of the pic. It mostly class 3, with a couple of class 4 sections, but a lot of exposure. So we rapped off a tree in the old days.

Hopefully he's cool with mutipitch. It can be frustrating to get all geared up for a day of climbing but not be able to go beyond the first pitch because of a member of your party.

It's happened to me in the past and it sucked staring up at all that unclimbable rock the whole day.Frown

Just a hazard of introducing new people to the sport though.

Yea, I've thought about it though. It is easy to lower off the first pitch. We can even lower him from the second pitch to the first anchor. Heck the face is unbroken, such that if we had a 300 foot rope we could lower him from the top of the second pitch to the ground easy. The problem will be if he freaks on the second pitch, then if we lower him, he will have to tie into the anchor on the top of the 1st pitch by himself. So perhaps I'll have him second instead of third.
I'll have to think about it all.

Good lord man, how old is that thing? I just checked their site and they don't even sell them anymore.

Around 15 years old, so its only 50M. I got it on sale at REI before I really needed a new rope. Its a dry treated rope and was only lightly used. But at the time I decided a 2nd rope was a good idea. So its in really good shape. However, since its so old I don't lead on it. Since I don't lead on it I don't climb on it, as most of the climbing is lead to an anchor and TR off that.
Plus, my brother bought another Mammut dry 50 shortly thereafter. So I really have two hardly used 15 yo 11mm 50M ropes. Crazy
My origonal rope is a Chounard non dry, way fuzy and well used 50. But I cut into two for mountainiering. Although it only saw a couple of uses at that. I'd get a new rope if I needed a mountain rope now.
Anyrate, I'd love to have another 60M Axis, except in blue to contrast with my red one.

Yeah you definitely want the least experienced person in the middle. Especially when it comes to rappeling, it always makes me nervous to either send an inexperienced person down first, or to leave them alone at the anchor. If a third person is available, I much prefer to have someone by their side the whole time for their first series of multipitch raps.

I've never even used an 11mm before but I've got a mental image of trying to stuff a well used one in to my atc being like trying to rapp off a garden hose.Tongue

My first rope was a 10.2 but it's been 9.8's since then. Not too skinny, not too fat, but just right. IMO of course.

He's climbed with us several time to 100 feet, and he's jonsing to go again. But hes never rapped. Since its multi pitch, 2 rope raps, I'm considering belaying him w/ 1 rope while he raps the other. Or just lowering him period. We'll see how he like being 150 then 300 feet up.

Well the old fuzy 11 was quite the chore to stuff through a Lowe tuber on rap. But there was very little risk of falling, as there was way toooooo much friction. If you let go of the rope, the tuber would lock down on the biner, and you could just hand out hands free. Took some getting used to actually holding down the rope on my new, as of several years ago, 10.2 gliding through the ATC XP. Laugh

Anyrate, none of the pitches are short enough to rap with one rope, so I'll break out my lightly used but old Mammot 11 for the tag line and bringing up the 3rd.

11mm??

Good lord man, how old is that thing? I just checked their site and they don't even sell them anymore.

Around 15 years old, so its only 50M. I got it on sale at REI before I really needed a new rope. Its a dry treated rope and was only lightly used. But at the time I decided a 2nd rope was a good idea. So its in really good shape. However, since its so old I don't lead on it. Since I don't lead on it I don't climb on it, as most of the climbing is lead to an anchor and TR off that.
Plus, my brother bought another Mammut dry 50 shortly thereafter. So I really have two hardly used 15 yo 11mm 50M ropes. Crazy
My origonal rope is a Chounard non dry, way fuzy and well used 50. But I cut into two for mountainiering. Although it only saw a couple of uses at that. I'd get a new rope if I needed a mountain rope now.
Anyrate, I'd love to have another 60M Axis, except in blue to contrast with my red one.
15yo????
AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *runz away*

I'd TR it in a heartbeat.

I wouldn't worry about that rope at all. I'd worry about belaying it though. I don't think I've ever even belayed an 11mm outside of some gym ropes, and perhaps 10.5s that've fuzzed out to 11mm.

I'm in the same boat but instead of losing it, It'll be destroyed at work within a few weeks.

I've only ever found one phone that can last longer than 8 months in my possession.

I was all geared up to go climbing this weekend but then I started to feel like I might be getting sick and I was supposed to crash with a friend who has two kids so called it off.

Turns out I wasn't getting sick at all. Now I'm bored with nothing to do all weekend. Fuckin hell.

I actually did go climbing yesterday but it's just the local spot so it doesn't really count. Might have to go back for a second helping tomorrow despite that fact. Whos counting anyway, right?

they are amazing. Was able to watch the radar at the crag yesterday and get out of there before it started storming.

I'm in the same boat but instead of losing it, It'll be destroyed at work within a few weeks.

I've only ever found one phone that can last longer than 8 months in my possession.

my dad had that phone before we got new ones. They are crazy strong and water resistant.

Went to Smith Rocks yesterday and climbed with some friends! Had to project some routes because it was sprinkling on and off. Got to work in a route a little, and then looked at the radar and saw a storm was just about to hit. Right as we got to the car it started raining really hard. Need to get back out to Smith Rocks and climb because the style of climbing is really hard there for me.

Turns out I wasn't getting sick at all. Now I'm bored with nothing to do all weekend. Fuckin hell.

I actually did go climbing yesterday but it's just the local spot so it doesn't really count. Might have to go back for a second helping tomorrow despite that fact. Whos counting anyway, right?

I like the looks of your local spot. looks fun. It's the one with the huge stone blocks, right?

Yeah I've been pretty happy with it so far. Had my current one for almost two years and some of the buttons are starting to act a bit funny sometimes but it's lasting pretty good.

For being only twenty minutes away, I got no complaints. The closest real cimbing beyond that is 2 hours away so I'm kind of lucky to have it.

there is every kind of route there. The climbing just requires you to find the right places to put your feet instead of climbing straight on. It's hard because most of the footholds on more moderate and harder routes are really small.

I'm lucky in that regard though. 8 years of handling brick and stone at work, combined with regular use of lotion has basically turned my hands in to very tough but supple leather.

I have never split a tip while climbing and it takes 4+ back to back days of gym climbing to make them sore. It's one of only a few benefits to a trade that otherwise wears your body down faster than pretty much any other.

Ahhhhh. Yeah technical footwork does tend to blow your arms out quick.

Just about every route at my local spot falls in to that category so my endurance and recovery ability is usually way ahead of my power. Put me on an over hanging route and I can hang up there for awhile but the lockoff after lockoff kills me pretty quick.

Yeah, I've got some ClimbOn! bar coming in the mail tomorrow/today so that should help.
It was really annoying, though. I split my middle tip and flapped the inside of my ring finger knuckle both in one slap.

When I ordered the stuff I didn't know I was going to give myself a front and back split and a flapper of a jug sloper. Still confused how it happened, too.

I think it's good the way it is, unless there is a concensus by the 'regulars' to add it. The links point to it. Again, the origional link to the origional thread:

The Lounge is a different beast than this or the BET and is looking almost impossible to do the same as here or there. We were looking to move, anyway, a few weeks ago. Nothing took hold. Now would be a good time, though.

I did tree root 5.5 about 18 years ago. Looking foward to doing it again. I believe it was my first multi pitch. With a 50M rope it was 3 pitches. Last pitch being short.

Two years ago I did Ending Crack, 5.7. A great finger to hands crack, but with foot holds on the face.

Anyrate, none of the pitches are short enough to rap with one rope, so I'll break out my lightly used but old Mammot 11 for the tag line and bringing up the 3rd.

11mm??

Good lord man, how old is that thing? I just checked their site and they don't even sell them anymore.

Around 15 years old, so its only 50M. I got it on sale at REI before I really needed a new rope. Its a dry treated rope and was only lightly used. But at the time I decided a 2nd rope was a good idea. So its in really good shape. However, since its so old I don't lead on it. Since I don't lead on it I don't climb on it, as most of the climbing is lead to an anchor and TR off that.
Plus, my brother bought another Mammut dry 50 shortly thereafter. So I really have two hardly used 15 yo 11mm 50M ropes. Crazy
My origonal rope is a Chounard non dry, way fuzy and well used 50. But I cut into two for mountainiering. Although it only saw a couple of uses at that. I'd get a new rope if I needed a mountain rope now.
Anyrate, I'd love to have another 60M Axis, except in blue to contrast with my red one.
15yo????
AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *runz away*

I'd TR it in a heartbeat.

Thats it.
Tthey are in good shape, not beat up at all, hardly climbed on heavy 11mm.

I wouldn't worry about that rope at all. I'd worry about belaying it though. I don't think I've ever even belayed an 11mm outside of some gym ropes, and perhaps 10.5s that've fuzzed out to 11mm.

hip belay ftw.

Ben der done dat.

I used a Lowe Tuber for years with the old fuzy 11 though.

Yes, stopping threads before they reach 100k will probably do that. Too bad. We were at 97k+. Although, that last 2k or so was not coming too fast.

Heh, I missed that while I was scanning reading the last page.

DDT was creating redundant threads and stressing the hampster. Deleting the big mans threads would have only been fair.

Yes, stopping threads before they reach 100k will probably do that. Too bad. We were at 97k+. Although, that last 2k or so was not coming too fast.

You were in spitting distance of getting 100k and your thread got locked. I'm seriously sorry for you.

weather and family were good. St. Louis is a surprisngly very hip and cosmo town. A bit weird to see churches like they were Dunkin' Donuts in Boston, though (on every corner).

Will write the TR up tonight (gonna do it on Facebook). I'll copy it from there to here and post a couple of pics, too. Plus I'll provide the Flickr link for the rest of the photos.

Looks as if my outdoor climbing season is done. Ankle is doing fine, but the partner has found a man and she wants to get a weekend in climbing with him before the weather turns cold. That was the last weekend I was going to climb outside. Frown

Oh well. Disappointed but I understand. I'm not climbing consistently anyway because I'm trying to heal. So I can understand why she'd see him as a better partner (better / consistent partner & better / more romantic undertones).

Meh. What are you gonna do. Honestly, the halcyon days of really hurtzing buttz and severe pc++ escalation are behind us. We coulda had 2k done in a couple of weeks if we'd been on our game. It is kind of a shame considering we were so close though. We could have been the biggest, most annoying thread on rc.knob ever! Oh, wait, we were.

That kinda blows. I think I got the boyfriend ditch recently. I planned to climb a classic tower in Sedona (The Mace) recently with this friend of a friend. I hadn't met her, but our mutual friend recommended we climb together. This girl stipulates she doesn't want to camp out with a guy she's just meeting on a trip. I totally understand. I offer to meet her before, maybe climb at a gym, but we never do. So, we're on track for a daytrip to do a cool climb. I'm packed and ready to go, and then, the night before, she calls up and says it just doesn't feel right. Oh, really? The NIGHT BEFORE it doesn't feel right? Could you have told me the week before? But, she says, we could still climb in a group or something to get to know each other. I tell her, I basically know you well enough now not to want to climb with you at all. Somebody flakes on you that hard right off the bat? Yeah, no.

I'm pretty sure she'd been tiptoeing around her boyfriend and then he found out or something and put the kibosh on everything. Besides the whole boyfriend thing - and no offense to anybody who subscribes - she's Christian, and, sorry, the last thing I'd want to do is get involved with that whole mess. I wanted to tell her, hey, this isn't about you, this isn't about you being a girl, this is about climbing a fucking climb! Get over yourself!

HaHa, that was a vicious cock PC++ blocking wasn't it.

They were already on top of the bitch breathing all hard and pawing her clothes off and just before they can get it in - I mean they can literally feel pubes tickling the tip - BAM, daddy walks in to the room and slaps on the chastity belt!

I wanted to tell her, hey, this isn't about you, this isn't about you being a girl, this is about climbing a fucking climb! Get over yourself!

I've meet all kinds in that regard.

I did 2 day trips with a craigslist partner (didn't even know she was a she until we met in person) and everything was going well so we started planning a two day trip to WV. Come to find out she didn't own a tent so offered to share my two man (already assuming that wasn't gonna fly) and much to my surprise she agreed. Didn't even bat an eye.

When I said something about having climbed with woman in the past who would have not been comfortable with that, she looked me right in the eye and said "I'm not worried about you, I've got mace".

Ahhhh the midwest. Gotta love it.

The midwest, let me tell you about the Mid West, but how about the South East?
I been to NC so many times I ought to take up residence. You can't help but to swing a stick and hit a Baptist church in the South. Then there are the other denominations.
But now the midwest. I had to fly into Tulsa and drive to Joplin MO, and some guy gets on the radio. I'm a church going kind of dude, but I'm like, ah man, do we have to pander to the southern preacher stereotype? No, not at all. It was a car salesman. Dang they're all like that from there. Crazy
Meh.

Oh well. Disappointed but I understand. I'm not climbing consistently anyway because I'm trying to heal. So I can understand why she'd see him as a better partner (better / consistent partner & better / more romantic undertones).

That kinda blows. I think I got the boyfriend ditch recently. I planned to climb a classic tower in Sedona (The Mace) recently with this friend of a friend. I hadn't met her, but our mutual friend recommended we climb together. This girl stipulates she doesn't want to camp out with a guy she's just meeting on a trip. I totally understand. I offer to meet her before, maybe climb at a gym, but we never do. So, we're on track for a daytrip to do a cool climb. I'm packed and ready to go, and then, the night before, she calls up and says it just doesn't feel right. Oh, really? The NIGHT BEFORE it doesn't feel right? Could you have told me the week before? But, she says, we could still climb in a group or something to get to know each other. I tell her, I basically know you well enough now not to want to climb with you at all. Somebody flakes on you that hard right off the bat? Yeah, no.

I'm pretty sure she'd been tiptoeing around her boyfriend and then he found out or something and put the kibosh on everything. Besides the whole boyfriend thing - and no offense to anybody who subscribes - she's Christian, and, sorry, the last thing I'd want to do is get involved with that whole mess. I wanted to tell her, hey, this isn't about you, this isn't about you being a girl, this is about climbing a fucking climb! Get over yourself!

I've meet all kinds in that regard.

I did 2 day trips with a craigslist partner (didn't even know she was a she until we met in person) and everything was going well so we started planning a two day trip to WV. Come to find out she didn't own a tent so offered to share my two man (already assuming that wasn't gonna fly) and much to my surprise she agreed. Didn't even bat an eye.

When I said something about having climbed with woman in the past who would have not been comfortable with that, she looked me right in the eye and said "I'm not worried about you, I've got mace".

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

LMAO.

Well done.

weather and family were good. St. Louis is a surprisngly very hip and cosmo town. A bit weird to see churches like they were Dunkin' Donuts in Boston, though (on every corner).

Will write the TR up tonight (gonna do it on Facebook). I'll copy it from there to here and post a couple of pics, too. Plus I'll provide the Flickr link for the rest of the photos.


Ahhhh the midwest. Gotta love it.

The midwest, let me tell you about the Mid West, but how about the South East?
I been to NC so many times I ought to take up residence. You can't help but to swing a stick and hit a Baptist church in the South. Then there are the other denominations.
But now the midwest. I had to fly into Tulsa and drive to Joplin MO, and some guy gets on the radio. I'm a church going kind of dude, but I'm like, ah man, do we have to pander to the southern preacher stereotype? No, not at all. It was a car salesman. Dang they're all like that from there. Crazy
Meh.

I've notice that too. If you just "drop in" on one of those radio programs, it's often hard to tell if your learning about your everlasting salvation or being sold a three in one fruit juicer.

Used car salesman indeed.

Unfortunately that trip never did happen because she wasn't comfortable having a partner who solos. Didn't want the personal attachment to a dead man walking I guess.

I'll always respect her for that comeback though.

Sonic Burger, so what with the hype?
Kum and Go is a chain of gas stations, WTHeck?
Wallyworld, dang there a lot of heavy, really heavy people riding those store scooters.
How come every single resturaunt in town, including KFC, is an all you can eat buffet???

We are not rock climbingcontent. Not arguing religion or politics because that would be content. Mad

I think we were both more talking about climbing than religion. At least I was. I gathered his comment was more content based (i.e. - I didn't see it as an anti-religion rant). If that's the case then you're fixed statement above is understandable.

Besides the whole boyfriend thing - and no offense to anybody who subscribes - she's Christian, and, sorry, the last thing I'd want to do is get involved with that whole mess. I wanted to tell her, hey, this isn't about you, this isn't about you being a girl, this is about climbing a fucking climb! Get over yourself!

That totally blows. Yeah, I wouldn't climb with her either. I hope you let her know that in fair terms, as well as your friend who recommended you two climbign together.

Seriously, whats that got to do with rock climbing SPCI?
We are not rock climbingcontent. Not arguing religion or politics because that would be content. Mad

I think we were both more talking about climbing than religion. At least I was. I gathered his comment was more content based (i.e. - I didn't see it as an anti-religion rant). If that's the case then you're fixed statement above is understandable.

Opps, sorry I think I confussed you.
I was trying to continue along your lines about how the lady passed climbing with zeke because she was a Christian. So what has that got to do with climbing? Nothing. Or being Dem or Rep? Or black or white? Again nothing to do with climbing. I climb with someone because I want to climb.
So no I didn't see your post as anti religous or what ever. Actually more in lines with my own thoughts.

Oh well. Disappointed but I understand. I'm not climbing consistently anyway because I'm trying to heal. So I can understand why she'd see him as a better partner (better / consistent partner & better / more romantic undertones).

That kinda blows. I think I got the boyfriend ditch recently. I planned to climb a classic tower in Sedona (The Mace) recently with this friend of a friend. I hadn't met her, but our mutual friend recommended we climb together. This girl stipulates she doesn't want to camp out with a guy she's just meeting on a trip. I totally understand. I offer to meet her before, maybe climb at a gym, but we never do. So, we're on track for a daytrip to do a cool climb. I'm packed and ready to go, and then, the night before, she calls up and says it just doesn't feel right. Oh, really? The NIGHT BEFORE it doesn't feel right? Could you have told me the week before? But, she says, we could still climb in a group or something to get to know each other. I tell her, I basically know you well enough now not to want to climb with you at all.

Man, that's teh suck! I had someone bail on me after I had taken a train into a different country (Germany into Switzerland) to go climbing. Lucky I had a friend in the area who was happy to take me out for a climb. Actually ended up being a great four days.

We're still in season down this way.

All you gotta do is make the 30 hour round trip.Unimpressed

Just starting the rock season down here... but that would be a 30hr trip one way!

I've meet all kinds in that regard.

I did 2 day trips with a craigslist partner (didn't even know she was a she until we met in person) and everything was going well so we started planning a two day trip to WV. Come to find out she didn't own a tent so offered to share my two man (already assuming that wasn't gonna fly) and much to my surprise she agreed. Didn't even bat an eye.

When I said something about having climbed with woman in the past who would have not been comfortable with that, she looked me right in the eye and said "I'm not worried about you, I've got mace".

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

LMAO.

Well done.

That is pretty funny! Made me laff!

Yes exactly, sorry for the confusion. I see how my post caused that.
Its kind of a beef of mine. People not hanging with someone because they are a different religion, politically party, or of a different point of view. Actually, what really gets me is when people start attending a different church so they are not associated with anymore.
Sure I have freinds that moved on, so I don't see them, or think to call them. I still do considered them freinds. But some actually dislike them, just because they go to a different church. Mad Rather petty, certainly not appropriate given the doctoren we claim to follow.
All right, rant over. Wrong audience.

Dude, that route looks sweet. I wanted to do it, but it snowed. I heard the rock gets super sketch when damp so...

Yeah, it looks cool. Sedona's coming into season, so it'll go down soon for sure. I have a buddy who got bouted on The Mace by a shoulder injury, so I know he'll want to get up it. There's some interesting looking routes there and a lot of new development that's not in books yet. I hear it's an acquired taste though, quite chossy in places and a little scary.

Oh well. Disappointed but I understand. I'm not climbing consistently anyway because I'm trying to heal. So I can understand why she'd see him as a better partner (better / consistent partner & better / more romantic undertones).

That kinda blows. I think I got the boyfriend ditch recently. I planned to climb a classic tower in Sedona (The Mace) recently with this friend of a friend. I hadn't met her, but our mutual friend recommended we climb together. This girl stipulates she doesn't want to camp out with a guy she's just meeting on a trip. I totally understand. I offer to meet her before, maybe climb at a gym, but we never do. So, we're on track for a daytrip to do a cool climb. I'm packed and ready to go, and then, the night before, she calls up and says it just doesn't feel right. Oh, really? The NIGHT BEFORE it doesn't feel right? Could you have told me the week before? But, she says, we could still climb in a group or something to get to know each other. I tell her, I basically know you well enough now not to want to climb with you at all. Somebody flakes on you that hard right off the bat? Yeah, no.

I'm pretty sure she'd been tiptoeing around her boyfriend and then he found out or something and put the kibosh on everything. Besides the whole boyfriend thing - and no offense to anybody who subscribes - she's Christian, and, sorry, the last thing I'd want to do is get involved with that whole mess. I wanted to tell her, hey, this isn't about you, this isn't about you being a girl, this is about climbing a fucking climb! Get over yourself!

Man, that's teh suck! I had someone bail on me after I had taken a train into a different country (Germany into Switzerland) to go climbing. Lucky I had a friend in the area who was happy to take me out for a climb. Actually ended up being a great four days.

Phone bailing the morning of is one thing. That^ would have pissed me off.

OK, so the knob Trip Report from Farm Aid won't be up until Wed, but the Facebook one is up as we speak.

I can't do the knob one because I have to upload the photos to a different site other than FB in order to post them here.

So I've moved in with a bunch of fun super-strong climbers.
This past weekend we went down to Shastoe, in Northumbria for some sandstone bouldering.
The group that went was Sam (my flatmate), Andy (his friend from highschool), Antoine (a Belgian student) and a friend of Antoine, Katia (who didn't climb).
We drove down and walked in with our multitude of pads, across the farm (Northumbria is just one big farm, rolling hills with small trees and the like) and we saw a table that had a bunch of eggs on it, and a few empty cartons saying "Fresh free range eggs - 6 for 1.50 or 12 for 3.00". I didn't have money but it was a pretty cool idea - the area is popular among walkers escaping from Newcastle for the weekend/afternoon.
Anyways, here's the pics and descriptions:


Walking in.


Northumbria.

(sorry there are no warm up pics)


Sam Flashing a 7a+ roof. It uses a small-ish undercling that you have to reach way above you for, so it's super shouldery. Then you had to make a big move to the lip, then pop again for a sloper, then just top out.



Antoine flashing said roof problem.


Me trying a hard 7b - the "dyno past the bad holds" beta did not work. I wuz too weak for this problem.


Andy using the correct beta. Yes, he stole my hat.


Andy *almost* sticking the sloper. He didn't send that day (only Antoine did) but he got damn close.


Antoine moving for the sloper.


Almost sticking the sloper, he got it next go.


Sam working a 7b+ roof/lip thing. It was haaaard.


Antoine trying said problem.


Sam


Andy


Antoine.


Me


Then we went home.

Yeah it did for a few hours until I could contact my other friend. I was in Bern and he lived back over the border in Konstanz. I took the train there and then spent the week with him climbing in the Donautal. My original plan was to hook up with a friend from England and climb near Grindalwald (and possibly think about the Eiger). Maybe it's lucky I didn't go. Unsure

Sam Flashing a 7a+ roof. It uses a small-ish undercling that you have to reach way above you for, so it's super shouldery. Then you had to make a big move to the lip, then pop again for a sloper, then just top out.

Aight - tmie for my own TR from Farm Aid 2009:


The year 2009 has not been a good one for me. I'm not going to go into details, but I've gone through the range of loneliness and frustration mixed amongst a sprinkle of disappointment and overzealousness (is that even a word?). The past few weeks have been particularly difficult.

I was nervous about this trip. I'm saving cash for my move to Chile next winter and I couldn't see spending extra money for a trip to St. Louis to see a bunch of bands I'd hardly go see if they were touring in Boston. But little by little, as I sucked myself into more aggravation, something changed inside of me and I said, "Fuck it. I'm going. Whatever happens will happen. I'm not going to stop having fun just because life hasn't been fun lately."

So I hopped on a plane and, after being delayed by 1.5 hours in Boston and having my Minneapolis-to-St. Louis flight cancelled (and rescheduled), my sister (Ami) and her husband (Chris) met me at the airport late Friday night after a long day of travelling. Thankfully they only live 15 minutes from everywhere in the St. Charles area and it didn't take long before I was sound asleep on their pull-out couch.

Farm Aid was on Sunday. It was still Saturday and Ami and Chris had a full day of parenting ahead. Ami spared a few minutes in the morning and took me to downtown St. Charles where there is a very pretty midwestern Main St. down by the Missouri River. We walked around and talked, stopped at a local Scottish-goods store, and enjoyed the cool weather. I was tempted to jump on a rusted, abandoned barge just to see what was inside, but I thought the better of it and we continued back to the car. Then we headed back so that Chris could take the youngest son to a soccer game while I went went with Ami to the middle-son's soccer game. I don't know these kids. I had never met them until I arrived in St. Louis, but I had fun challenging the middle son on as he tried (successfully) to run around two soccer fields in less than five minutes (he was just over four minutes). He's 11 years old. I thought that was a pretty good time.

After that we had to prepare for the youngest son's birthday party and the local Chuck E Cheese. I haven't been in one of those places since I was a kid. Mom, Dad: you have my deepest respect. Holy cow those places are mad houses. Thankfully, though, I had to be in downtown St. Louis for the Farm Aid Eve party Saturday night. Chris's father drove me there and dropped me off on a party-hopping "The Loop" (the nickname for Delmar Blvd) at the Blueberry Hill restaurant (owned by Chuck Berry). I was hungry and so glad for the awesome food. Soon enough my Waltham Farm Board co-hort and Farm Aid staff friend (i.e. - she who hooked us all up with this) Alicia showed and I started to loosen up. The band, Seven Smart Fella's, was pretty good and I was starting to get the feeling that St. Louis wasn't the boring farm town I had thought it was. Farmers, it seems, know how to let loose and have fun in a good way. Yeah, people are friendlier in the plains. For the first time in a long time I relaxed and felt good about not being so up tight about things. In short, despite the fact that I've thoroughly enjoyed several things in 2009, I was starting to have fun.

Alicia had to head out early and I saw no reason to stick around much longer than that. Ami and Chris met me on The Loop and we walked around and took in the scenery. I was tickled by St. Louis's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and I just felt good about walking around this part of town. I don't know what it was. Maybe it was the atmosphere. Maybe I was just letting go? Maybe I didn't have to be anyone or anyplace to do anything for once. Slowly I felt the knots of stress untie.

It was late, but I wanted to see the Arch and I didn't think I'd get the chance before I left on Monday. Ami and Chris were fine with that, so we hopped in the car and took a ride around town. Let me say this, despite the fact that it was dark, I could clearly see that St. Louis has one of the coolest, nicest, prettiest parks in any city I've ever visited. All the museums, fountains, and rolling green hills were impressive. I could easily spend a week just in this park taking in all the sights. I really wish we had more time during the day, but I was impressed with what I saw.

Then we went to the Arch. Getting there was a little adventurous due to street closures and the like, but we got there and it was just as impressive as I hoped it would be. I vaguely remember seeing it twice in my life: once when I was travelling across country by car (Mom, correct me if I'm wrong about this) and once again from an airplane when I was flying from somewhere to someplace else. I've always wanted to go up inside of it and see the land below me from the top. But it was midnight at this point and the park rangers were getting restless with all the people stopping to see it in the middle of the night. Still, I wandered all the way down to the Mississippi River (I didn't dip my fingers in. I kind of regret that now) to get a better angle, then I ran up the steps to shoot from directly below. Ami and Chris got shots of the moon underneath the silver metal. It was a cool night, but the smooth Arch was not cool to the touch. It was impressively blank and stark and calm and imposing and meaningful all at once. It is a thing of pure beauty.

The three of us were up early to be at the volunteer tent for an 830am briefing. Breakfast, the locally grown by local farmers kind, was about as good as I'd ever had. I even went back for more hashbrowns, and I've never been a fan of potatoes!

We were stationed at a donation booth and it was our task to set it up, decorate it with hay, cornstalks, and pumpkins from the press conference. Then the gates opened at noon and the show started. We were close to the stage and could hear all the early acts go on and come off. The crowd was building in ancipation for the main acts later on. I wanted to see Willie, Neil, and John (I couldn't have cared less about Dave Matthews, but he did a PHENOMENAL duet with Willie on some song called Graveyard (or something like that) and I was suddenly impressed with someone whose music I've never liked much). I was looking forward to Wilco. I wanted to soak in the atmosphere. I couldn't wait for our shift to finish (and man, by 3pm, I WAS HUNGRY!!).

I've had a lot of dissapointment the past few weeks. Some of it I knew was coming (such as having to stick it out at work another couple of months). Other parts I was taken by surprise. I've always been someone who feeds off chemistry with people but it seems that when I've sensed it was present it turned out to not be true. Since my divorce 2.5 years ago I've worried that I'd never feel that again, and I'm perpetually wrong still, and it still sucks, and I did nothing but drag my heart around with me all day Friday through the frustrating flight delays and cancellation. But we got busy at the donation booth. The one thing I learned about farmers is that they really care about Farm Aid. We were selling programs for whatever donation people wanted to give. A few gave a buck, but the vast majority of people gave five, ten, twenty, and even $100 a few times. Some of those folks who gave more than $20 didn't take the DVD they could have had for that price. It was crazy. And it was fun. And even though my stomach was turning from hunger, and even though the second shift was 45 minutes late to relieve us, I was so satisfied with what I was doing that I forgot for a few minutes that I was supposed to be sad.

Of course, once the final person came to relieve me, I was immediately saddened by the fact that the food tent was closed until 430pm. "DAMN!" I said to myself. The food was so good that morning that I refused to buy from a concession store. I had 45 minutes to wait until it opened again. I had lost Ami and Chris only to find out that at 330pm they managed to score box tickets for only one hour. By the time I realized this it was closer to 4pm. In order to get a ticket for myself I was going to have to track down one of the Farm Aid employees. These folks were running all over the place in an outdoor stadium that easily holds 20,000 people. How was I going to track her down, get a ticket, and get to the box seat in time to catch the latest act? It seemed impossible, so I figured that I would let someone else have the ticket instead.

But then my boredom got the best of me and I decided to take a chance to see if she was at the Volunteer Tent. I figured that all the tickets would have been given away at this point. I held out no hope. I was hungry and the alloted time to be in the box was almost up. But, to my surprise, the woman was there with the ticket. I had 15 minutes left to get a wristband from someone (apparently the ticket is not enough to get you in) and get to my seat. "OK," I said, "I can do this." At the very least I knew I'd be reunited with Ami and Chris.

Well, an odd thing happened along the way. I learned that the wristband was one of those sticky ones that one gets when going to a nightclub. They can't be taken off easily for a reason: they aren't supposed to be swapped out (only one person can use it because the only way to take it off your wrist is to rip it, thus making it invalid). The woman with the wristbands said that she'd come and get us at 430pm. She wasn't sure how this was going to work, but she only had one wristband for every ticket. Somehow they were going to try to get the wistbands off the current squattors and onto the wrists of the new lucky recipients.

I caught the last few minutes of the show that was on stage (Country singer Jamey Johnson - maybe?) and 430pm soon came. I wanted to dash off to get food, but I knew they were coming to get us. I didn't want to screw over the next person by disappearing, so I waited. And we waited. And then Gretchen Wilson came on (funny story about this in a minute). And soon it was quarter to five. And then it was five. We didn't know what to do, so we just stayed there listening to our stomachs compete with the on-stage talent. Finally, Chris recieved a text message that said something like this, "Hey folks. We can't figure out how to exchange the wristbands. Enjoy your night."

WOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!

We grabbed dinner and brought it back to the box to enjoy the rest of the show. I felt much better after that. We watched the rest of Gretchen Wilson and then Wilco after her. Wilson at one point shouted out to the crownd, "Any of you folks out there proud rednecks?". Half the crowd went nuts. And then Wilco got on stage later and shouted, "Any of you folks out there NOT rednecks?" The other half went nuts, too. I smiled and enjoyed that moment. While I enjoyed Wilson's upbeat music and performance in general, I gotta say that she's all gimmicks pandering to a specific population. I was a little embarrassed at how she took advantage of the flag and all. I believe every bit that she's a good patriot, but I don't believe one bit that she's a tolerant citizen.

Anyway, I wasn't too thrilled about seeing the next two performers (Jason Mraz and Dave Matthews), so I went to find Alicia. She was taking down the booth that she had worked during the day. Once we took down her stuff, we brought it all backstage to the Farm Aid trailer. Wow, what a mad house it is backstage. So many buses. So many roadies. There's a lot that goes into putting on a show like this and I was glad to see first hand what that was like.

Alicia headed off to do some work and I went back to the box. I caught the tail end of Dave Matthews (and the awesome duet with Willie Nelson) and Alicia joined us in the box.

"So," she said turning to me, "you want to get up close?"
"Yeah," I said. "When, who, how?"
"I can get you up there for Neil Young if you want."
"Sweet!"

She took off and grabbed her spare all-access Event Staff pass and I met her down by the s
