OK. Here we go.

Might have a job in the Greeley area, starting early October.

Anyone looking/willing to give a guy some floor space/couch/spare bedroom for a couple weeks, until said guy can find an apartment? I don't think I can fit in time to find a place to live between now and then.

Disclosure information: I snore, I like cold beer, I love cheap Mexican food, and will ALWAYS step outside to smoke a cigar. And I will absolutely NOT accept charity. I will ONLY accept offers if you let me pay for my stay. We'll work out prices, but I will not freeload.

Oh, and I'd prefer some place north of the Denver metro area. Longmont, Loveland, Fort Collins, etc.

Two, perhaps three weeks. Let me know if you've got a couch to spare. I'll let you know if the job offer comes through.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled climbing discussion.

Hello folks. I just moved to Boulder and am looking for a climbing partner to do mostly sport climbs from 5.9 to 5.10b or something like that. I love bouldering too. Nothing too serious just would like to get out and have fun climbing maybe in boulder canyon doing lead climbs and whatnot. send me a message if you're interested. got my own gear for sport climbing.

It takes really good gear, so you should try it.

It started raining the day we hiked up to it. Looks super nice.

Since I sign on only once in a blue moon, I'm probably out of the loop. But if you're talking about Center Route on Cynnical Pinnacle, it's a must do. The route is pretty sustained for it's grade, takes gear well, and is in a tremendous position. IMO it's among the best crack routes in the state. OK, well among the best that I can get my bulbous behind up.

The downside -- the approach sucks. Think endless stairmaster of ball bearings -- unless the Platte has recently eliminated all decomposing granite kitty litter on trails. And if you bring a rack like I do (I'm a wuss and proud of it), the weight of the pack will make the approach suck even more.

Be careful on the rappel that you don't go straight down the route. If you do, you may donate yet another rope to the crack. Many moons ago the rap route was to the right of the crack -- be certain to go there, or wherever the recommended rap goes these days.

And don't forget to check out the "W" route to your left on the ascent. That's where the real Platte hardmen climb. (note -- I don't go there -- a Platte 5.4 still gives me a challenge)

Shorty, Sorry you are out of the loop. Center route on Rincon in Eldo. The gear is still good on it.

All righty then. I'll just amble aimlessly back to the Platte, ponder decomposing granite, and have some more coffee. And other than observing that the Rincon version is striking line, I have no input on the route. Especially early on a Monday.

It's all good, Shorty. I was talking about Cynical Pinnacle, so we are both in that other loop. We hiked up to Sunshine Dome and did Turkey Foot, but the rain kept us from doing anything else.

Tim -- your comments (and location) contributed to my thinking it was the Platte's Center Route. Oh well, not the first time I've jumped to the wrong conclusion.

So... are you and Ms. Roach going to make it out my way to HWSNBN one of these days? I thought you might be stopping by a couple of weeks ago. Last week I started up on a new face, working a nice moderate crack. Unfortunately, the logistics of working 4 pitches off the deck and cleaning a gazillion years of gunk from a hand crack wiped me out. Maybe I can finish the pitch this weekend.

Yes, Tracy and I have talked about visiting your area sometime soon. Jeanne has always had a good time there from what I hear.

Anyone interested in climbing at the Rockn & Jammin in south Denver tomorrow (wednesday) evening? I'm looking to do steep lead routes, but I'll belay you on whatever.

If you hear a ruckus at the Bank Campground's group site this weekend feel free to stop by and say hello. I (and a few other Nebraskans) will be there all weekend. I'm the only one in the group that posts regularly on this site.

Most of us will be at Pizza Madness Saturday evening watching the NU/Va. Tech game but later the campfire will be blazing til the wee hours.

Hey, y'all:

Will be in the Denver area (Broomfield, specifically,) next Thursday thru Friday. Job interview. Arrive the 16th, interview that day, leave Friday. Exact times not yet solidified... waiting on the company to make the travel arrangements.

No chance to climb, but damn sure would be willing to meet up with folks for a cold beer and food.

Anyone free?

Thanks for coming. I found someone's keys under my tramp and Britt's shoe hanging from the gutter in the backyard. I didn't find anyone under the piano, though.

Hey Brad, hope your recovery from the surgery goes smoothly. A friend of mine just had his ankle tendons fixed and another friend had her tennis elbow repositioned. Both are in the same boat as you with the recovery.
