"Heavens To Betsy"

When you sent me that text from the mt. I nearly cried.

So happy for you, Jefe. Being on rock and in the back country is some of the best therapy ever.

Didn't get to climb, thanks to Labor Day. Beneath my project was the pale, lumpy midriff of our country, yelling 'merica!!!

Zero sleep last night (Long story not appropriate for this thread), too many cups of coffee, and of course well "Kushed"...

and before I could say "Blue Butt Plug" I found myself way too close to getting SPANKED on a climb well within my limit...



A fuking BLAST!!!...


I love this sh!t...

Jefe, I am so sorry for your loss. I wish you could feel the heartfelt emotion behind those typed words, which look so shallow just sitting on the screen.

Your route is a beautiful tribute.

Thank you Phyl, I CAN feel it. The love and support of my E friends has helped me a lot (thanks locker) (thanks bravecowboy).

Leggs and other loved ones have really been there for me and my fam.

This was the first time in a long time that I didn't struggle with climbing being a selfish endeavor, and remembered how healing it can be.
My partner was pretty understanding when I cried my eyes out at the second belay.

Here's the view from the belay, overlooking my hometown.

Edit: Jefe man, I'm sorry for the circumstances but glad to see you're out there. I was just explaining to my kids today, from their newfound perspective of mountain adventures, that being out in nature is my way of going to church, to recharge my soul, to deal with the stuff of life and be able to come back to be the happy person I want to be, to treat other people well, and to just embrace life more.

It's cool you are able to do this in a way that honors and memorializes a person you care very deeply for.

Hah The Tippler!

Very nice climb Andy.

Was the thread in at the end of the traverse?
Did you do the other climbs in the vicinity? Unprintable is the same grade but seems to get done much less than the Tippler. Maybe wrist breaking jams to inglorious knee-liebacking is not considered "modern"?

Next step: Tippler Direct - not much harder if you can lock off long enough.

My best to you Jefe. A fine tribute, I'm sure the loss no less felt though.

I haven't climbed sh#t but plastic lately. Gearing up for a mini-bonanza road trip next week. Mostly, by working too much and sleeping like crap.

A beautiful tribute indeed, Jefe. The colors at that place are amazing (I'm guessing Cochise?).


What I got on was not so colorful

Uhhhhhhh! Still working on leading. Gear placements= good. Use of slings/biner alingment = bad. But the view was nice.

Got out on some slick as snot limestone 2 minutes outside of town with a couple of guys pretty new to outdoor climbing through the climbing club I am the advisor for at the college I work at. It was about 90 degrees and the cruxes are sandbagged and low to the ground. On the plus side I cranked on my bad shoulder and it is only kind of sore. So after climbing only easy stuff and not very much of it I am ready to start climbing more often and harder this fall.
