Cool Photos Big Mike! Except I'm a ghost in that one of me an Kieran?? Real fun day good to see a bunch of supertopropers & lurkers out there.

Big deal drinking at 230 Relic, your a grown up, should be doing that everyday. Luke is just a kid & look at him, at the crag he was drinking beer & eating roast beef curtains with Yorkshire & gravy at noon today, chasing the whole deal with rapid fire joints. I woulda been black out too but had to drive to whistler after climbing :-)

Forest dry?

So if I went to the crag now and coiled my rope I'd get the stuffin' knocked or picked out of me as though I had burst a large boil into someone's beer?

Hahahaha.. Coils have fallen out it seems. Some nasty rumor about them causing the rope to twist and kink. The kids these days use butterfly coils typically... Rope bags are a nice cragging option too...

It was the day for Crime redpoint attempts it seems and Kyle went for his.





He squeaked it out.




Then Marc Andre cruises up with his shoes and chalk bag and calmly jumps on it...


It was the first time he fourth classed it.

He got Kyle to leave up his rope so he could swing over the wet patch to penny lane and finish up. Then he had to get down somehow so he broke out the duffersitz







LOL Marc you only did it because I mentioned it before the solo didn't you!! :)

Mike, bringin it back to life here. More nice shots, I like the one of Kieran on the face of power windows, very nice thirds. Hopefully we'll see u guys back there tomorrow.

Nice one Kyle!

Edit- Bruce & Tami I'll bring you both up to speed on the newest RCD(rope carrying device), at the sport cliff lately it seems that large reusable bags from trendy stores like Lulu or Ikea have proven to be the most efficient- & cool way to carry your rope. These are often anchored down as well to stop dogs & strollers from knocking them over & spilling the chord everywhere.

What a great Sunday Monday combo at penny, lots of familiar faces, lots of proud sends, and in my case lots belay pump (I'm so light, I get a good pump on just holding the rope).

I have my doubts as to whether the bear even left the crag Sunday night. A creature like peder moves on instinct; like if he keeps telling me and Kieran he might donate us his pin rack, we'll keep belaying him.

Damn, wish I had known sh#t was going down, I'd have come up. Bastards didn't message me! Instead, I was busy trying to kill myself on the icy death slopes at Cypress.

BK you are SO RITE. I remember ropes getting twisted, yeah, but not if you did the little twisty-thing with your thumb. Ditto the hip belay. Remember the Big Rock CHuck at Murrin Park - up by "Fist"?

I like my ATC - if I was to go climbing. Never figgerd out a gri-gri. Seemed too overly -mechanical.

Anyway..........more gear and crap to buy. Fuuuuuuuuuccccckkkkk..........
