    Miss this wonderful place and miss being able to actually pull hard. Pebble wrestling at it's finest. Mushroom Boulder in my backyard, yes please.

    I have a bunch of Elcap pics from BITD somewhere. I have to go find and scan them. They prove I actually had hair once.

    Has everyone BUT ME climbed Ancient Art? Oh well.

    Philth, just cuz we're old doesn't mean we can't still climb. Just need to bring it down a few grades.

    Mud is that Veedauwoo? Really wish I took the time to climb there if so.

    I really need to start climbing again, some shots from a few years ago

    Granite is starting to dry out here in the PNW, gotta love dry rock and some sun this time of year.

    ^^^ Yes a mix of Vedauwoo, Indian Creek, and bouldering around Butte MT.

    I've been spending more time in Vedauwoo since the wide cracks don't fvck with my tendonitis as much as crimpy climbs do.

    No offense, but man I wouldn't want to be your belayer under that load of loose blocks, looks like half the mountain is ready to come down.

    mud, I hate the wide stuff, more power to you for being able/willing to do it.

    I climbed a bit in my early 20's now at 36 I get the urge to return to it at the end of every ski season. This year I may join a climbing gym and see how it goes.

    None taken, as we tried to stick to a class 4 route, which due to a poor choice in guide book, we lost it. So no ropes.

    That's why they call them the "Deadly Bells." There has been a number of rockfall deaths there.

    The sport was always filled with whiny little man boys.
    Just go lurk over on supertopo and you will see those old farts
    are just as whiny, narcissistic, and petty as people can get.
    I lost a lot of respect for some of the old timers I use to
    read about mostly due to how whiny they act on that forum.

    The kids today are actually pretty cool, they don't act
    like what they are doing is some great noble act.
    It's just climbing.

    I knew I'd catch some flack for that photo.

    I'm working on it, the rack was brand new this spring. I've been out a lot more since then and they look more respectable now.

    It's a sick photo. Few things more inviting in climbing than a shiny #3 and sunny sandstone. Was that with a wide angle lens? Looking to pick one up at some point in the next decade
