Bad, thank you.

Before the trailer was released & posted, so not thinking of how it would look, I posted 2 videos, they are silly, I'm having fun . . .

Not going to re-post 'em here.
The 1st one,"1/2'halfed" was shot by hanging the camera from a tree branch.
The 2nd, "Mo'buz.Mo'bray" is shot from the ground looking up.


Go take a look.

I like to think,
whether we are just lurking in the background, posting or not,
We all still try to find those feelings, to find some of the magic that is climbing rock.

Whoa, Gnome, that's one crusty, scruffy little crag, but you pull down on whatever's available. Keep the faith, brother.

dick-wrenching mega-anticlassic newroute Tuff Gong, OW on welded tuff. It will stand the test of time as a weird wide route, until more of it falls off the cliff.

Typical late-winter Sunday, heading out the driveway, to climb with ropes in Balcarce.

10 times and 2 other routes once each for about 900ish ft of clean beautifull climbing. Only managed 2 miles of trail though as I got scared off by the lightning on the peak I wanted to hike over on the way home...

that p3 5.6 is pretty hilarious huh Mike? I cleaned that rusty wingnut off the quarter incher in the descent gully, for good luck, last I was up there.


this afternoon I laid the groundwork pitch, solo, for crescent crack at the tuff crag, cleaned an ancient holubar(?) knifeblade style pin and bailed as the sun set. kinda fun bumping the bail tat from the old project to the new project, and gratifying to work on it alone, no one in the line of fire below as every single move sends baseballs tumbling down.

The pictures at the top of this page are enough from me.

but one more.

I climbed the cleaned line,

(just right of the center) to the overlap at the top,

that requires a mantel/side-pull to step up.

A move that I was not feeling.

The %humidity & temps. were equal, both 96.

When I stuck my head past the overlap

I found the side pull blocked by a cool,
all white, 2 inch fuzzy caterpillar.
I moved off right & down-climed.

I made another silly video,
but forgot to check the focus & zoom-in, so its not worth posting.
