Big Mike, when you guys were join to Bishop all i wanted was to see a pic of you on that thing! I thought it would be the craziest buttdragger for you but it's actually not bad by the looks of that shot. Thanks Relic. Rolfr is right tho, there's not 10 routes in NA that see the grunting & tantrums that ironman does. Best route in the milks if u ask me is to walk up behind ironman & climb the crack up to the huecos up to the ridge to the final flake all the way to the summit of the mini mountain that overlooks the peabodies, it's like a little 4 pitch scramble-classic!

Tami, if you can scratch your ear with your toe you would probably have a good time bouldering :-) just need to find the problems that are fun for you! Careful though you could become fully corrupted.....

Yup. I can see it now. "Tami Knight, sends v12 onsight and sets new female age record." ;)

Lol! I bet she could! ;)

Butt dragging is a bummer for sure. Thank god for the pad posse or my butt woulda been mega sore the next day. That first shot is a total setup. Pretty sure i never even got that far ;)

Quit being such a wet blanket MH2! Rolf is probably all sunburned and dehydrated down there. We got all natural remedy for that up here, just stand outside all day!

Think of all the money your saving on chapstick Mh2, not to mention our climate is good for the complexion. I'm sure Rolf is already starting to look like this lady being down in Jtree with those Santa Anna winds.

I utterly suck as a boulderer. ALways did...........unless it was some wonky mantleshelf that needed you to put yer foot by yer ear onto an edge and press that out to stand.

Most boulder problems I've come across need big upper body strength and long reaches. I have a strong core & legs but never was upper-body powerful; acrobatics is more about body alignment & moving that through space. Some of the more upper body powerful events are included in men's gymnastics - rings and pommel horse come right to mind.

With my long body and tinky arms & legs and inability to crank even one pullup, bouldering was always epic.

So don't look for Tami V12s anytime soon unless it requires doing a one minute handstand on top as part of the V-grade :-)

Ha!!!

And, yeah? The skulls ?

Tami, if you go bouldering MORE THAN ONCEEEE, you develop this thing called strength. Haha. With your talents you would crush!

This reminds me of when I was about 12 there was a local radio station in Kamloops that put on a contest where they had hidden a golden skull with ruby eyes, valued around $50k somewhere in the bush with 40k of downtown, they put a grid map in the paper & every week on the radio blanked out a square which represent a square km where the skull wasn't. This was to happen until there was only 15 squares left. Once down to 15 they talked about the skull week in & week out until winter came & the contest kind of disappeared. As a young buck me & my friends did our share of looking around the 10k radius from our neighborhood we could get on our bikes, we found many interesting things but the skull was never found by anyone & much like this current skull story, many of the townspeople wondered if it was ever real.................

Yeahhhh. :-)Busted. :-D



Interesting story about the hidden skull. That reminds me of the Kit Williams book "Masquerade" where he buried a golden rabbit , the location of which was to be unraveled using clues in the book. The finder turned out to be more lucky then a sleuth and was quite the scandal.

I got up early this morning and got inspired to do a few edits. Nina's been bugging me for some Bulletheads pics. What you have to understand Nina is that is takes considerable effort to turn this:

Nina on p1 of Two Rats and a Titmouse 10d (p1-10c)



Into this:





but sometimes shots like this:

Kyle on p3 of Two Rats


Require very little effort due to the lighting and background.



And background is what turns a great shot into an amazing one imo.

Don't do it Tami! They're all evil little (and big, like Mike) trolls who live under the rocks and eat children. Those body parts found in the forest should be evidence enough!

Yeah, right, "Why not come bouldering with us, little girl" said some guys carrying portable mattresses.
