It's funny telling people I pulled something in my back tying my shoe though.

Back is starting to loosen up. The tylenol/naproxen mix I took probably wasn't a bad idea.

BET's dead, hopefully everyone was out climbing.

Great weakend at the NRG. Went to some crowded spurt crags but I was still psyched, saw lots of friends, weather was perfect. Managed to re-RP a lot of one twos that I've done before, and even did a 12a slab which was an improvement with the LisPaul. It still swells up after every climb, and long approaches are a pain. Got on one new hard climb called Fuel Injector that is not going to go down anytime soon, and then fell at the final move of another manufactured chossheap. Good times.

A friend of ours just installed a stripper pole on his back patio, so we spent most of Saturday eve drinking margaritas and messing around on that. Then yesterday, Diogi's had a burrito eating contest for Cinco de Mayo, and both Jay and Joe were competing. Joe dominated it; ate over 2 lbs of a 5 lb burrito. He was double psyched, because a fat student of his who had just said his class was boring was also competing, and got his ass kicked. Def. fun times, I wish I could have stayed with the festivities a bit later.

Was awesome climbing with Lena and hanging with her kidlets, although apparently she has now declared on facespace that she hates the entire NRG. Oh, and Lena, both Matt and Cat got shut down on that move over the roof on "Hueco not Waco," too. They both used that terrible moving flake and screamed. I stayed off of it, after telling everyone they should have done it.

Yeah, this last bit was a large part of why I was so frustrated with that climb. I got on it with the mindset of "Paul said it was a fun route" and I was getting madder and madder as I climbed that you thought to suggest that route to me as being fun.

And I don't hate the entire NRG. I just want to condense it to one crag about the size of the Motherlode (O.K., maybe Motherlode, Chocolate Factory AND Left Flank) with only the climbs that I like. And then blow up the rest of it. Maybe I should have encouraged you guys to drop flaming torches into jay's shaft, after all.

Short of that unrealistic hope, I would like to find someone who would actually be psyched to hang the draws for me with the right amount of support and encouragement. (Another unrealistic hope?) The draw-hanging joke is actually not fun anymore, I do seriously want to punch faces when I hear that, and since you, Shaun and Ed are particularly prone to it, your faces are in most danger.

Hope it feel better by the time you have to ride your bike back!

I must have slept funny, because my neck is feeling pretty bad, along one shoulder. The pinched-nerve kind of thing that really sucks

Wait, now I'm comfrused. When you say "hang your draws," do you mean in the literal, or euphemistic sense? Because seriously, part of project climbing is just sussing out a route, and putting your own draws up via hang dogging, stickclipping, or whatever. Not by getting a stronger partner to do it, that will seriously limit your options.

My bad, I kind of thought that you would rather climb something that is a project for me, but relatively-easy one go climb for you, instead of belaying me for couple hours while I haul up the stick clip and suss out the moves. Duly noted. I will stop feeling bad about taking too long on a climb, and start taking couple hours per burn. I am sure I will lose some partners that way, but you just volunteered?

Next weekend of climbing together, I promise to stick clip up every bolt up Made in Shade. Tell me you would have gotten on Fuel Injector if it didn't have the draws hanging though, and I would call you a liar.

Btw, report from Ed says that Shaun sent 8ball first go, and Ed sent Trust in Jesus 3rd go, his first 11b.

Having a stronger partner hang my draws is a pretty big draw of going climbing with Nathan. Just saying.....

I find it easier to suss out a route when the draws are already hanging. Less energy spent hanging draws = more energy to put into the route.

Yep.

But it is more than that. With the New, the frustration of not knowing that I CAN hang the draw (or even, more specifically, the almost-certainty that at least one draw per route will be very difficult to hang) is something that normal-sized person just doesn't think about that much. Sure, on a hard climb the first time around, you are probably grabbing draws, but when you can't even freaking reach the bolt to hang that draw to grab... it is just not fun.

I had to use a frog to hang one draw on a 10a. No, climbing higher was not an option. It was the kind of situation where you clip a draw and then go sideways away from it, not up over it. If I could have reached that draw from anyone else, I would have stopped to remove the frog when I climbed past it.

Camhead toproped that route on the account of his gimpfoot. It was no harder than 10a, sure. But ask him how he would have liked to fall in that spot. He didn't-- hence, the toprope.

All it took is 3 inches or so (which the frog provided), and you would just calmly stand in a super-secure, practically hands-free spot and hang that draw. It is not about sussing beta. It is just simply about reachy bolt locations that is way worse at the new than anywhere else..

O.K. [/whine]

Camhead knows. He just conveniently forgets that the routes that he is sussing out already have the draws hanging, more often than not.

It's true. Steep + hardish = hung draws. Still, I've done my fair share of draw hanging at Sendless for my own prodges, and would be this season, too, if I was able to stand on my own two feet (huh huh).

Lena, you should have just gotten on Made in the Shade. Prehung draws, guaranteed fun movement, Neil and Drivel have done all the moves, and failure does not hurt as badly on a 12+.

if you don't like the new, don't go there. if you don't want route recommendations, always climb with people who are weaker.

if you want someone to always hang your draws for you, make your boyfriend do it. that is the whole point of the draw-hanging joke.

I do a lot of toproping at the New. I still really like it.

you're more likely to lose partners being unpleasant than being slow on a route.

it doesn't take hours to stick clip aid a route. I didn't even take me hours to ghetto aid New Traditionalist!

and you're way the fuck stronger than I was last fall when I did all the moves on Made in the Shade. Why don't you just fucking try it?

I was at a party last weekend and decided to fight a dude (totally for fun, and mutual). I woke up the next morning with a moonshine hangover and a sore back and shoulder that is still troubling me.

Managed to re-RP a lot of one twos that I've done before, and even did a 12a slab which was an improvement with the LisPaul. It still swells up after every climb, and long approaches are a pain. Got on one new hard climb called Fuel Injector that is not going to go down anytime soon, and then fell at the final move of another manufactured chossheap. Good times.

A friend of ours just installed a stripper pole on his back patio, so we spent most of Saturday eve drinking margaritas and messing around on that. Then yesterday, Diogi's had a burrito eating contest for Cinco de Mayo, and both Jay and Joe were competing. Joe dominated it; ate over 2 lbs of a 5 lb burrito. He was double psyched, because a fat student of his who had just said his class was boring was also competing, and got his ass kicked. Def. fun times, I wish I could have stayed with the festivities a bit later.

Was awesome climbing with Lena and hanging with her kidlets, although apparently she has now declared on facespace that she hates the entire NRG. Oh, and Lena, both Matt and Cat got shut down on that move over the roof on "Hueco not Waco," too. They both used that terrible moving flake and screamed. I stayed off of it, after telling everyone they should have done it.

Yeah, this last bit was a large part of why I was so frustrated with that climb. I got on it with the mindset of "Paul said it was a fun route" and I was getting madder and madder as I climbed that you thought to suggest that route to me as being fun.

And I don't hate the entire NRG. I just want to condense it to one crag about the size of the Motherlode (O.K., maybe Motherlode, Chocolate Factory AND Left Flank) with only the climbs that I like. And then blow up the rest of it. Maybe I should have encouraged you guys to drop flaming torches into jay's shaft, after all.

Short of that unrealistic hope, I would like to find someone who would actually be psyched to hang the draws for me with the right amount of support and encouragement. (Another unrealistic hope?) The draw-hanging joke is actually not fun anymore, I do seriously want to punch faces when I hear that, and since you, Shaun and Ed are particularly prone to it, your faces are in most danger.

don't warn them. just let kamhed make the joke, then punch him in the fase.

Weke-end report. And extensions.

So I've been fucking off in i'm-done-with-my-thesis lala land for the past week or so. I haven't much to do here, but PG was finishing up her coursework and stressing out last week, so not much got accomplished. Drank a bunch of moonshine, flew kites, and wrestled a dude for the hell of it.

My dad and sister came to visit this weekend. Went to Yellowstone on friday and saw all of the requisite ungulates along with a grizzly bear. Saturday I sat through a three hour commencement and made court jester jokes.

Today PG and I went out climbing. The thesis blort is in effect, but I felt reasonably good on the stuff I tried. The routes in some of the area are largely five-bolt wonders, but fun. Potential for tons more on overhung limestone.

Will probably go to Xzzzz at the end of the week. Time to get back in shape!

Wait, now I'm comfrused. When you say "hang your draws," do you mean in the literal, or euphemistic sense? Because seriously, part of project climbing is just sussing out a route, and putting your own draws up via hang dogging, stickclipping, or whatever. Not by getting a stronger partner to do it, that will seriously limit your options.

Having a stronger partner hang my draws is a pretty big draw of going climbing with Nathan. Just saying.....

and y'all are fucking, yes?

I like that part of the deal.

Now that being said, I can hang my own draws if required. But I see nothing wrong with taking advantage of a draw hanging situation when I see it.

I'll try to convince him to put up a TR for me on a route called BigOTree this weekend. If you fall at the crux people tend to hit the tree. I don't think he'll go for it so I'll probably have to stick clip my way up to set up the TR. That's just the way it is.

It's funny telling people I pulled something in my back tying my shoe though.

Back is starting to loosen up. The tylenol/naproxen mix I took probably wasn't a bad idea.

Hope it feel better by the time you have to ride your bike back!

I must have slept funny, because my neck is feeling pretty bad, along one shoulder. The pinched-nerve kind of thing that really sucks

I was at a party last weekend and decided to fight a dude (totally for fun, and mutual). I woke up the next morning with a moonshine hangover and a sore back and shoulder that is still troubling me.

My back was actually feeling pretty okay last night. I even went running. This morning it's pretty sore again. I think I'll suck it up and go see the crack ma'am today.

Nope. But I was in the mood to grapple with someone. And we were both smashed.
