I'm interested in climbing this weekend. I have Thursday-Sunday off at this time. Currently, I have some snowshoe plans this weekend that look like they may fall through. If you are game for a climb - whether trad, sport or gym - give me a PM or email me directly at bustinmins@yahoo.com and maybe we can work it out.

My abilities are listed on my profile.

Looks like I can't make it to Table afterall. The boys have a b-day party at 1:00! Phooey! So I'll be hitting the gym around 9:30 at Paradise. If anyone feels like climbing Sat am in the gym with me, I could use a partner.

We'll hopefully be heading down to Eldo this weekend, weather permitting. I've got a pretty regular group of people that I climb with, but am always willing to hook up with somebody new. I live about 30 min north of Boulder, have a decent trad rack, will lead on gear up to about 5.9/10 (will thrash about on 5.11 sport as well). I also like to boulder out at Carter Lake (which is about 15 minutes from my house) if there is anybody in the Ft Collins / Loveland area that is interested in that.

Some enterprising Front Range rc.com type should organize a Vedauwoo trip when the weather warms up a bit more (maybe sometime in April?), it's a fun place to go for a weekend of cragging / camping and getting spanked on off-widths :wink: Lots of free camping, pretty relaxed scene for the most part (especially compared to most of the climbing areas down here).

Thinking of gyms, I was planning on going to rocknandjamn north tomorrow (wed) night. Any takers?

Was already planing on getting some climbing in at RnJ tonight, probably around 6ish.

Hey Mike,

I just read your profile and noticed you lived in Austin. I lived there for 17 years and just moved here. crankenstein (Scott Hudson) also lived a stint in Austin. Now we should defiinitely all get together and climb. E-Rock sure must still be burned in your mind, eh? Ha ha ha! Eldo is a far cry from that.

This ongoing thread is excellent. It's especially nice to be able to post html links. So we can find MapQuest pages to give directions and just post them up. Getting chilly today and a little snow, but the weather can change mood anytime. And so into Thursday we go...

Latest Weather - Snow and rain might hold off till afternoon, but cloudy, windy and cold, sunday is supposed to be even colder. Blech! I will chime in tommorow morning with what I think about coming up but there is no harm in just saying same time same place, next weekend. I may just take a drive into the area anyway to check it out.

On a similar note, anyone need a housemate or know of any leads in that area. Im looking to move into denver metro, or boulder, possibly longmont. I come with the coolest dog in the world in tow.

I would still like to get some climbing in on sat though, either at paradise, BRC (I will mortgage the house) or at R+J.

Rocky Mountain Lobster Fest!!

I cant take it anymore! I love Colorado, but there is just one insurmountable problem! It's totally devoid of good seafood. I know of two others on this thread who will agree with me!

In that vein, I have a source who will ship Maine Lobster to me! Who's in?!

The forecast is looking pretty decent, so I think a few of us will be heading up to the Rincon Wall or Cadillac Crags Saturday morning. If you see a tall geek with a scrappy looking beard, that would be me.

Well, let's start thinking about a trip to Vedauwoo. I'm thinking middle to end of April, looks like temps should average around 50ish. Which is nice since I like to cover up as much skin as possible when thrutching on flesh eating off-widths. If anyone is up for a trip during that time, or would like to suggest another time, post away.

zozo that is about a twenty year old sentiment. I am from the east coast and I don't think that's been true since the early eighties. There's no way I'd pay someone to ship me lobsters (even if they are Maine lobsters) when I can buy live ones here.

Totally devoid? not even close man. 'course it ain't cheap, but last time I bought seafood back east it kinda blew me away how expensive it was there too.

Fresh flown halibut right now (daily I think) at Whole Paycheck.

Sorry man, I used to be a chef in maine and the live lobsters you will get here are at least a week old and have probably been dipped in chemicals. My friend lives in Rockport can buy lobsters off the boat and overnight them to me (shipped in seawater).

I'll go with my plan! :D You can have one if you want.

As long as the weather holds I'm in for Saturday at Golden Cliffs. I'll be the guy in the purple pickup truck. Who else is in?

I'll be there - probably more like 10:00 10:30. I actually plan to drive up anyway even if the weather goes bad just to see the area and to look at a few places in Arvada.

Im going to need some serious directions. Im a directional tard. I can get lost in a cul de sac.

With temps in the 60s tomorrow afternoon (Friday, the 12th), I plan on clipping a few bolts at Golden Cliffs/North Table. I'll be there around 4-ish or so.

I am up for it. I have climbed exactly one off width climb on TR and all I have to say is the next day I felt like I was run over by a frieght train. :D

Skibby,

I'm up for vertical play if the weather is so inclined. I have plans on Sat. night but the rest of the weekend is pretty open. If I didn't have the plans on Sat night I'd recommend a multi-day snowshoe.

I still want to do that if we have enough season left

OK. I am planning on being in the parking lot at 9ish Sat morning. I think that we can climb until the weather turns (if it does at all). I will be in a green Nissan Sentra with Virginia plates. My cell # is 703-867-0153. I have gear and 2 ropes.
Skibby,
It will be good to see you again. I was at the RMNP gathering last fall. It was a blast! I was road tripping then and decided to settle in Boulder. You may recognize me.

Jeremy

Great. So I'll see all of you guys at Golden Cliffs Saturday AM around 9:45. I'll be in the blue Nissan Frontier and have a blue Lowe backpack. Marketa will be climbing as well. Woo hoo! I'll find you along the cliff somewhere if we don't meet in the lot. "Deck Chairs on the Titanic" might be a good 5.9 warmup.

Zozo, what's that bigass weird seafood mega-restaurant in Maine that serves you on paper plates and gives you plastic forks? The food was good, but strange decor.

Skibby. I can at least recognize you, so I'll know where everyone is. You've met Marketa as well. She's back into climbing after 9 months and loving it. What is "vertical play" anyway? Is that a form of wagering for beer/food? I'd be into wagering for beers at the Golden Brewery. Speaking of after climbing, that would be a good place to meet.

See everyone tomorrow.

-Tim Stich

You've GOT to be talking about The Weathervane...all the nasty fried seafood you can stomach. It's a New England institution.

I'm in - I'll be there around 9 - 930. I won't have a sharpie named forehead but I will be in the ugliest old "Ghetto Cruisin Crag Parkin" Pontiac 6000 with a mirror hanging down on the left side - it's nice! :)

I'm leading about 6-8 - anyone in that range? I know many of you are well over it - I just don't want to bore you to be my belay slave if I don't have to do so.
