    i was at a pretty established crag today. my buddy who can really smell an FA says something about taking a walk and grabs his rope, anchor kit, micro trax and brushes. he comes back a while later to ask for a belay, he’d spent some time in the woods cleaning up a line. the line isn’t long but it was real - overhanging and fist to baggy fists. very cool. i really need to up my crack game at some point. i suggested Endorance for a name because of the length and this damn ewok forest we shwacked through, but i don’t think that will stick.

    One of the best decisions of my life was saving for a set of hex's, a rope, runners that I hand tied from reading books, nuts and running away on weekends with my best friend's dad and hanging out almost permanently at the gunks and cutting my chops and getting a free ride with the ramons playing from his dad's car, and an ice cream afterwards. I came home with knowledge, fitness, and a balanced perspective of what a good life could be. I was 9. And it never stopped. I led my first climb that year, a descent route, and that set the bar for the biggest smile I've ever had going forward. I don't think I got some ridgid friend and did the horizontal gunks tie off till I was 13. By then, I was confident whipping off of gunks 5.9.

    Gotta love how climbing sets you up for coo shit later in life! Moon's Agincourt is always a good story.

    Tried a 13 when I got comfy on 12s, not even close and they were of similar styles....jailhouse/rifle style. WTF is even a 15? I hear ya on EBs. Got some given to me when I started and thought they were ok until I got Firés. Gave the EBs to a buddy who tried wearing them casually...what a kook!

    My first climbing shoes were PA's before EB's were around. The step up to EB's was life changing. Sticky rubber is several notches above that.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...
