Love this thread. Do trees count? This one sent some branches through our roof, was nearly all dead, and had to come out. Would not have done it without the climbing gear!

'Abalakov' (D6), "Ob Savi" dry tooling crag (Slovenia)

Except for both warm ups, Abalakov is my first lead. This tooling thing is a good workout, and it's quite safe, being mainly overhanging, and bolted. Single pitches.

this is a spot I found while hunting on Sat. it was a brutal hike up a very steep slippery mountain. Ihe oak leaves on the ground make it treacherous. Aparently you can 4x4 up there from the back side but I have never done that..

Had an awesome day climbing with the Mucci Man. We did Keystone Corner, Five and Dime, Copper Penney and Lunatics Fringe. Was also great to bump into Chad and James getting after it as well.

Had a great time at Ragged Mountain, in Conn. this past weekend.

That place is really unique, with tons of great crack/face climbs.

Repeated some great 5.10 crack climbs.

The blue route and the orange route. I did the blue one unroped and downclimbed it. I think it goes at 5.2. I also worked on the left crack (5.9).
Now that you're laughing, please remember that I had my spine fused less than a year ago and am just getting back on the (gym) rock. Plan to go out to Rubidoux in a couple of weeks and get on real rock (as opposed to Reel Rock - I don't think me 22' gym solo will make their film list).

Gym climbed for the first time since shoulder injury. Even went on the route where I got hurt. No pain 24 hours later. Thanks Susan and Michael for meeting up with me.

Didn't send anything (oh BTW, is there a thread for TRing?), but worked (TR) a new D6 line at the 'Ob Savi' dry tooling crag this morning. That's the third 6 I'm on, and I must say that this 6th grade is quite extended. In this case, you really got to get those upside-down tool positions straight, on horizontal cracks, for instance when it comes to seriously lying back the moves on the traverse. But what's cool at this crag is that you mainly drop off far away enough from the rock.
-first time mono-pointing today (brand new lynxes!), but still using the quarks and the ol' nepal Xtreme.

I didn't climb at all. Instead, I spent 6 hours covered in chemicals, scrubbing til I hurt, and removing spray paint from the Santee Boulder field. There is so much that it is incredible, and what makes it worse is the locals have started painting over it. Please, PLEASE, join your local access group and help them when they need it. San Diego's is www.alliedclimbers.org.

For the record, I've never seen Donkey Dick paint free in my 13 years of climbing in San Diego. The friction is amazing right now, so head out there and check that rock out. I can't believe how much paint we took off of it. And we WILL be heading back out there with more resources to attack the other boulders. This is a battle I'd like to win, and ACSD can surely use your help.

Thanks,

Josh

Josh, what materials and technology are you using? Apart from a lot of elbow grease, that is.
