Nature and I did some rad highball first ascents on this remote Los Angeles crag that no-one except us has ever climbed before!

It was so rad doing the hairball first sketchy moves, when you don't even know if the sick line is going to go free!!!

Just spent the last 2 days at Mt Arapiles, Australia climbing some of the moderate classics (The Rack, Voodoo, Tarantula, Death Row plus assorted others)

Somehow the place feels like the love child born of a brief passion between Joshua Tree and the Pinnacles - I was skeptical at first but I'm warming to it.

No photos, sorry... next time.

Got a long standing personal project by Nemo today, 8+ years of walking by and looking and occasionally giving it a try. Scrappy off fingers for me with a couple of handjams. Bad landing on a sloping rock ledge makes it feel taller than it is right off the start. It was a good day for me.

Yesterday I stubbed my right pinky toe, on a free weight, which caught on a callous and split the sucker seemingly to the bone. I had that bone pain for about half an hour.

Anyway I taped it up as soon as I stanched the blood, and ddidn't look at it.

Until I got to PGSF today and faced a moment of truth. I was able to gently squeeze it into a 39 Miura and climb half a dozen pitches before it began to throb. I switched to 39.5 Tc Pros and started playing the cracks. Nothing hard, but a dozen or so succesful pitches. No great step for climbkind, but it made my day.

Then I voted Jerry into office!

Only a dozen or so pitches I guess the days are getting short.

Thanks, Rich - I needed that. Pouring rain here, hard at work.

I was once in Boston in September, and hoped but didn't quite manage to make it to the Gowannashunks. Perhaps sometime. My mother really liked to visit New York City - she grew up in small town Ontario, but worked as a counsellor at a summer camp in upstate New York, where once a week they went to the city with the old crew, had a day off, and then went back to camp with the new ones. Pretty heady stuff for teenagers, in the big city.

Happy Boulders, my usual V0 circuit with the neighbor's dog Maci. Just starting to sprinkle when we got back to the car. 42 cars today at the parking.

Stony Point - a few things out in the back and a couple problems on the B1.

Saw some gumbies in skateboard pads and bike helmets climbing up the Boy Scout Route on Turlock - warned them that was the down climb and got some puzzled looks.

It was a great day!
