    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...

    Decent. But I've been to the silvretta because it's been hot more often than not.

    I ticked krieger des lichts ( in this vid, not my vid though)

    This weekend should be ok. Still a tad warm but doable. No idea crowd wise. I've only been once this year.

    This weekend I was in the murgtal for a qick session on sunday to finish of some leftovers between correcting class Tests for 12 hours on sat and sunday afternoon. Nice climb.
    I maay go this weekend but not likely I still have Tests lieing around.

    Are you headed to the wood?

    Led my first sport routes this weekend. 2 5.8's and a 5.7. Super easy stuff, but still psyched to finally do some leading and get out.

    Yep. Only did 3 routes as my friend had never been, so had to take him on the tour from parking lot all the way to Waimea and Jimmy Cliff.

    Not much of an image, but it was fun to be out moving on rock.

    At Crystal Crag near Mammoth last month. Three of us on the climb, so short pitched it and I led two of the four pitches. I am getting too old for this, but still fun if only a 5.7.

    You can't really appreciate it in the picture, but that is all pure white quartz. Pretty fricking amazing.

    Marcel Remy just passed away, he was killing it until his passing at 99!



    If I can flail my way up some shit like him or Fred, hell, if I can just make it that long I'll be stoked.

    rip, marcel.

    and another sideways special, onsighting an earlier 5.10+ pitch

    climbed a newer route on mount ogden (my home crag i guess), found it to be more "rocks stuck together with dirt" then actual rock climbing. no thanks. beautiful views though - here was one of the few interesting parts, an off route traverse on good rock

    this was one of the best pieces on one of our pitches - i wish i was kidding. not hard climbing, but tons of garbage rock, and no opportunities for gear.
