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.

Some nasty rumor about them causing the rope to twist and kink

Thats how it starts. Some nasty rumor and the next thing you know its off to the history books for you. Funny how it never kinked before. You think Mammut and the rest of the cartel got together and put a special twist in there? Thats my guess. Same with the hip belay. You can't sell many Grigri's if a recumbent and half asleep hip does the trick. Lucky for them climbing went mainstream and through careful manipulation by the multinational corporate climbing schools and those propagandist indoctrinating how to manuals low tech went the way of the Edsel.

It all started with the Willans

edit : good to see Young Marc is bucking the trend..... or is that bunching his shorts? Nothing quite like a good dulfersitz to remove hair from your chest, and a few other places

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..........

No photo cred. Sheesh, I risked my life for that photo and Kieran takes the credit. Hmm.

At the second belay I get a txt from my co-worker. "Umm did you go to P.E.I. For lunch"

Hahahha.

Another great day.

It's clear Bruce that Don Whillans was into self-flagellation. His harness proves it.
