in utmost respect for those valiant predessesors whom have traveled "our" 5.10 paths when only hexes and chocks interrupted injury; and when 5.9 was the logical designation for those routes that kicked our arse....
in utmost respect, charlie d.,

i challenge all, or some, would-be sailors to attain every 2nd, or 2nd and a half story balcony WITH A HANDRAIL, along Placerville's 1/4 mile mainstreet. i do believe there exists 7 or 8?

simple. juxtapose a path parallel to the miner's path, both hoss men and angelic beatrices':
climb onto the elevated balconies and bow to the traipsing patrons whom are upholding our's, yours and mine economy. smile to the POLE eese as they wonder upon your position among the stars???

5.9. no harder. the crux is a one arm hang, feet dangling above passer buyers, lunge to a 1930's electrical cord, it blows obviously!
regain, with a one arm pullup, traction unto yonder!

if you send ALL 7 'er 8, ill buy you beers until you stop me.

Thanks charlie D.

Flower of High Rank, now there's a 5.9

And beer, not free, at the Lumber Mill afterwards?

Any takers?

Itís a bit far to travel just for beer, maybe, we could bet racks? Or maybe your car?

weld all, or anyone!
you can do it.
just whisper graces to those departed
as you lie back ancient downspouts, mantle the defunct hangman's tree sign, shimmy up the columns's who sustain yesterday, walk the crooked path, smile past the gutter sludge... lunge for the rusty handrails that the gowned cowgirls of our past held onto as they authored their's future!.

go. do it. then. but not now. bcause now is only that and its of my making and not yurs and when you hold the now in your hand it burns so! that you must consume it... only to regurgitate it, or puke it bak up onto your toes and then kick it ouround.. kick the sh#t of the now until it becomes then, and then...

wish it back.
but its gone.


and It left It's impression upon you, and you'll never be the same, for IT.

when i woke up in the ambulance, completely ignorant of my immediate past,
my only question to the paramedic hovering 'bove me was,
"did i hurt anyone?"

then i rejoined blankdom...

How much longer till they tear it down? You must have hit it early in the day not to hit all the smokers out on the sidewalk!

well,
swheatheart, it is more defunct than gone.

the hangMAN proper is departed. gawd bless his soul.
but the metal skelton of the sign survives! though only rusty angle iron and decrepid wiring which are perfect to receive my hopeful grasp.

scout i clawed my way up.
up into the fardest reaches of those smoker's most hopeful glances!
i out-climbed their wafting columns of carcinogins.

they did not know what to think of neon charlie! perched within the hangman's tree sign, beaming confident life, and NO rope.

it is interesting to intermingle my notions with those of common understanding.

it's like gently setting el cap down in the lap of the meadow observer.
