O.K.

4 Dales :-) Just posted to someone about penny bouldering. Way Homo! Sounds like a fun sport with my 3 year old but I've had 4 dale's and I thought...well...

Just ran outta work. Fed said 3 yr old, went to Reel Rock Tour saw a bunch of kick ass climbers doing all the rad sh#t I could never do sans family resposibilities, etc. With said family.

But it was fun, inspiring, and keeps me "blowing some sort of "gascket" everytime I try to man up and pretend to be 20 and as close (miles away) to as good as these folks are.

Check this thing out!

As for the penny bouldering dude/dudess I'm just bein' a 'player hater'.

But Cheers!!!

Obviously, Penny Bouldering is out of your league. But it's not for the faint of heart. Especially if you've had a brouhaha. :)

Or maybe 2.

awe hey man,

KabalaArch,

Meant no hard feelings. I do think that its a cool idea about "penny bouldering" the more I've thought about it. Seems like you really have got to think about the faces of the boulder you want to go with. Thinking about it on my hike tomorrow.

It was just a response to the topic.

It is really a cool idea for my kid...

Cheers!

No hard feelings intended, felt, nor accepted, BluSky.

This is ye old POFNWD thread - that was just a spontaneous thread of one of several Climber's games which creative people have come up with over the years.

It's actually a cool game to play with the children. I've never met anyone who's ever known about it. Clearly, it's origins remain enshrouded in the misty mist. Perhaps Scottie's father, Leo, himself a respectfully good Climber too, played it during his son's early childhood. Who knows? Maybe we could score for a Guggenheim fellowship as needed to research the misty origins of the game?

I've yet to google Wikepedia, to see if this actually has any kind of a historical background.

Surpassing entirely new levels of weirdness, the Game does, in fact, seem to help us to "get small," like building a scale model of an auto, train set, aircraft scale models from desktop display to RC flight replicas, ultimately to scratch build models of my own building designs. And, depending on your boulder's aclevities, you're going to be forced to closely examine the stones features, to identify edges which offer purchase, upward advancement...and "no hands" rests.

It seems as though the Climber's diversions tend to reinforce peripheral skill sets. Skiing for eamplem helps with balance in a high paced scenario; helps, too, to rationalize the exposure of a 50-55 degree slope
of steep windpack.

It seems to help indentify the utility of improbable rest points on micro edges, particularly principles of opposition.

And, it's a good bit of quality fun time with your youngsters, competitive by nature. Jusr remember to bring a small thickness article of sponge, or what have you, for a crash pad.

And, remember, while in the field tomorrow, to boost a small stone to bring home with you.

im totally 9.5 percent,
coming down from an epic, though
bitchen mountain holiday
filled with a sub-freezing,
tentless bivi with young chilren (6, 9);
howlin wind!
suffering together at 2:00am,
midnight bare-asses pees,

a wonderful meteor shower;
grateful sunrise,
skippin lake surface,

a powerful and dramatic stormfront
entering our range,

stopped by kirkwood and
hadda grilled cheese with sliced tomatoes
on then childrens / mom's mind
and a double bach tall ale or two upon
popa's graceless being.

salud, a ti.


..."honey?"

"yea."
why is there a wheel barrow in the
living room?"

"oh. i had to wheel myself across
the threshold, sweets."

"oh. okay."


off we go in gleeful company
to the local theatre's production
of ....

"a sleeping beauty."

which is exactly what we weren't the last eve's.

Ganja on a cloudy, cold Sunday is better than a Friday night drunk, IMHO.

Hey Norwegian, your daughters let you take them camping? Last I read, one was resisting.

marlon brandon,

we revampired our plan,
instead of leaving friday night,
we left saturday morning..

which was actually a damn blessing,
considering it was 29 degrees overnight
and there is not a wayward way
that we coulda endured a second bivy.

we're talkin, like
borderline reckless, there, eh.

(hey pete, that last, eh,
was for you and yours)

Wish me luck . Happy Friday night !

A bow to Lolli, and thanks to all that posted during the last 3 Fridays.

I let you down. My apologies for climbing and/or socializing off ST.

I'll try to make up.

Sluuuuuuurp!

I've been celebrating "cheating death."

sluuurp!


Glad I still have my eyebrows-----and hair, after dumping a pint of gas on a pile of soggy weeds this week.

After I threw the lit stick-match in from 6-feet away, I backed up a few more feet and enjoyed the huge "WOOOOOOOF----BOOOOOOOM!"

A while after the explosion.

1. Your current consumption

1/2 bottle Yarden (Mt. Hermon, Golan heights) red.

2. At least one inflammatory comment

PTPP is a tosser.
(but he repented, so all's good)

3. Why you are drunk and typing on McTopo instead of doing something worthwhile, like driving to the crag.

i'm in San Diego on a Friday night, for a Saturday PR event for my company. I'm watching "Gold Rush Alaska" on the hotel TV. I work 60-70 hrs/week in mines, then watch a TV show about mining when I have a few hours to relax. I'm a sick puppy, I know.

Todd Hoffman is a waddling douchebag

Waiting for my coffee to be done so I can start cleaning up for my wifes imminent return on Monday. I really really really miss my son, can't wait.

Mixing & matching, also known as playin' with fire!
There were some beers until I remembered that there is Rum!

Up yours!

Still debating the pros & cons of a Breitenbach attempt. Snow holds scree together, right?

Hoffman does waddle, for sure. But their mining drama is for real -- it's never necessary to make this sh*t up.

Best wishes, TREEZ, on your upcoming happy reunion!
