Glad to hear you're up and moving. I wish you a speedy return to the crags and good times with Stigonrock.
I guess I'm the one just out of the shot :p just over in Ontario again
We did do the ones left of the falls, the 5.8 on TR and Lew actually led the 5.10. BTW the 10 is where the blue toes came from :D
Hey if camhead can hang on a bolt, I can eat "chocolaty caramel" rice crispies :p
Cut.... never mind the shoulder Mick, when are you going to get the hair cut :P
....but I'm confused. Isn't body bouldering really a form of climbing, and that involves a pad ;)
A nice looking route but somewhat short, looks like it would be a fun lead.
I'm shocked Pete. In the interest of safety I would have thought you would use one with a safety catch on the hook to avoid the risk of dropping the pig.
Hurumph!!! .... sure I don't know what you mean by that. I was erm... getting folks into the right frame of mind :)
Ah the games marrionettes play
Ah a fine route on a little gem of a wall.
Lots of cams there but where are your nuts :P
And so the dark side draws closer eh?
Suzy A. Was she Canadian eh?
From the dark side to the cold side eh!! So did you park your butt on a pad and talk about trad?
Hey isn't that the one I took of camhead or is it you Lew, I don't see your balls :)
SNOW!!! I thought he'd just spilt his chalkbag.
Look down...look down.... Go to NRP and do the via ferrata, what a blast.
Dude, that looks an awesome downclimb :P
Welcome to the dark side ;)
Yeah but tell them to tuck their thumbs in unless they want to sprain them sooner or later. Is that Jim behind you?
Hey Brent, do you ever NOT wear those pants?
HMMMM.... no rope THERE either :P
Bloody right you didn't spill any beer, that would have been alcohol abuse.
The route name is "Skunks Do It In Tevas". It is a 5.9 with a reachy crux to big assed sloper pocket but you were probably fine ya long freak :P
It must have been a morning shot because it gets sun in the afternoon.
Check out the face :P it's like you were climbing trad or something.
Hope there's a life jacket on the gear :)
Listing it as Backbone may be a mistake but this definitely looks like El Potrero Chico. Being over the pavilion I would guess it is on the Jungle Wall and most likely is the route "Space Boyz". The small red car on the sunny road gives a nice perception of height.
Hey that 5.7 variation is good too. Especially when it starts to rain, the first time you try the 5.9 finish.
Those ropes look wrong. Can't quite tell what- twisted, both clipped, or wrong one clipped. Be careful as the consequences can be serious.
I hope you kept the good karma going by at least trying to trace the owner. I'd be thinking nice to find, but oh man a hard loss if they were mine.
Sheesh, I'm glad it was Danylo belaying. You're not even tied in.
Hmmm, there would be a 400lb block in my pants too if that happened while I was ON LEAD. I bet he was glad for the TR.
I'm afraid I only rated it a 6. I may be wrong but I would estimate this photo was rotated 22-35 degrees. The rope draw and chalkbag/gear on the harness give it away and spoil what would otherwise have been a reasonable action shot.
Oh sure. No mention of who is holding the fricken rope for you. No mention for the guy with your lives in my hands. Pfffft.
Hey I remember that climb. It had some dodgy ice that sounded more like a bowstring.
- and Amber, now it is time to come to the cold side ;-)
Spanky - How can you call your friends experienced when they make such stupid lazy mistakes? Complacent at best. The biggest problem with Tharealtn seems to be his attitude though. Too big a mouth to listen and learn.
I'm giving this pic a 9 just because you found the biggest crag in Florida ;)
Where's yer tools dudes?????
Ice is an unforgiving mistress, less so than rock, which is why falling on ice is bad. It is also why being fully competent before leading is important. I agree with Hoppinbig's warning. You were wise to come down but I have to disagree with your belief you knew what you were doing. Learn on TR and by seconding, get some milage under your belt, then you may be better suited to leading ice. Take care.
"solo?" - Yes, it's a lot more common in the UK than north america. I went to Stanage one time and did 12 routes in something over 2 hours that way. Soft grit of course :)
So fricken smile already :P
Jumping Norah - look at all that loose crap about to fall off and chop your ropes. Good job you have two.
Lockin' 'R Hookin' 5.7*
Looks rather like "Mosquito" in the Bluffs - is it?
Photo by David..... belay, gear, advice, and encouragement by who????
It is indeed a fun part of the ridge although the first time I crossed it, none of us realized it was "the" cheval part until walking back across it when we realized we had no pics. That's when my buddy threatened to kill me if I didn't stop dancing a jig. Idle threat, we were roped together... haha.
I guess you two were too far back last time to see what Yvette was doing?
No but it makes your tongue hang out like a stray dog.... hehe.
Nichole - you're a fine figure of a lass and very pretty. The photo itself is nothing great but you are. I'll not say more for fear of being called a dirty old sod except you'd look even better with a little less eye makeup. Wow.
As for Colins comment about the GoPro, don't be so harsh on him. He's climbed with me and my GoPro but he'll get a slap if he considers me any kind of elite climber. :-p
Ya duz know alpenglow is only in a morning immediately after the sun first rises right? Noob!! :-p
