Nothing better than putting on a shaky hook and taking that big breath before you commit.

So let's see em!

Maybe this will get you Hooker's to post up.

Mucci, where the hell is that???



I don't have any pictures. If someone was snapping shots while I was way run out standing on a shakey hook insteat of ready to pull slack...

I'd kill em'.

Boy some of your pictures look pretty unsafe. Couldn't one of those hook thingys slip off the rock? This whole drilling with hooks thing sounds pretty bogus to me. Wouldn't it be safer just to do it with a top rope? Like this guy?


Edit to confirm that this post was made in "Joke" mode.

that's some crap.

I'll say! Not a hookable stance anywhere. I don't even know why that guy is bolting in the first place -- how would anybody be able to climb that wall when it doesn't have any holds????

[Munge: I don't remember where I found that picture. Pretty weird though.]

It would be probably best to not show the tiny dime-thin edges I have hung off a hook, while another foot edging on another dime-thin edge! But then again .. Not using a POWER DRILL .............. Yie Yie Yie!

T2, yeah, I still have a pair. They stink to high heaven, but I'm finding they are the best shoe ever for all around work.
