Hrm, so a pretty strong female climber (whom I believe Chossy hates, but he probably likes her now, since they're both elites, hehe) that I know only tangentially just posted up a write-up of her recent multi-week trip to Jtree.

She is pretty solid up to 13+ spurt, and has done some hard tard out here, too (All That Glitters at the RRG, as well as the second ascent of a way hard 13a fingercrack at the NRG).

So, I was pretty surprised to read this TR, just reads like any standard 10-11 climber's first trip to Josh. I guess that granite quartz monzonite is not for everyone?

Lol. Everyone does the same routes. Jerry Brown is pretty good.

I mostly like the fact that it is a "splitter tour". in jtree. home of the perfect splitters.


i mean, I'm an idiot and all... but aren't a lot of the cracks at Jtree technically splitter cracks? in that they split a face, rather than being in a dihedral/corner?

I suppose so, altough a lot (say, Hot Rocks), are kind of insipient seam-type cracks. If splitter = straight in, parallel sided IC lines, there aren't many in Jtree.

They are jagged, irregular and poddy. They do 'split a face' but they are the farthest thing from clean splitters.

Went to the Loaf sunday. Bought a surfboard from a buddy, then we pimped the old projects. Fracture, Taurus, Fingerlocks. A few other odds n' ends. Met a gal who went to grad school with my old roomies new wife. Good times.

Gnu definition of "splitter"-- you could place a bomber cam blindfolded, based solely on the size of the jam you are hanging off of.

People who learned to climb in Ontario don't really understand what a splitter crack really is. If you have to jam your hand once in a crack you're on a crack climb around here.

She really needs to stop pussyfooting around and kill you already. What else are we paying her for?

THAT's where my money's been going? Unacceptable!

Next time, we'll make sure to drop a cow-sized block, instead of the microwave-sized. or maybe just get snoop to climb in Muir, where cows fall from the sky without any effort of double-asiants.
Clearly, Lena is unaware of the rule that all falling blocks must be described in relative to a similarly sized kitchen appliance. I would personally vote for one large deep freezer or several kitchenaid stand mixers for the next attempt.

I seem to remember this being explained to her, bet she refuses to say the cow was anything but cow sized.

It was a small cow, I believe, so it was probably about like a deep freeze. Of course, Lena will always mention the cow, since that's a way better story. The Frenchie in Holy Grail was not throwing ovens at King Arthur, after all.

I don't really understand how a block could be cow-sized.


it doesn't matter. It would still squish you.

Yes, his sense of humor, but he was not supposed to post the pic -which is why it was emailed to him in the first place rather than posted- as it is our surprise insert to our Christmas cards to all our freinds. So much for that.

Speaking of poppa biner, I got a phone call this morning starting with 'This isn't going to be a fight but...' and proceeds to tell me that my 13 year old brother is telling his friends he's an atheist and how it's all my fault and we are all just so disrespectful of his religion and goIng to hell. New low? And no, how could that POSSIBLY not be the start of a fight? Not that it matters, but I never talk about religion with my brothers, because it's boring. Lord forbid the kid gets his own ideas or *gasp* reads something on the Internet.
