Terror, one of my first leads bashing pins. I think Dirty Harry may have told me who was working the free ascent. Seem to remember someone mentioning it over coffe at Sawbucks in town. Dam it sucks when your memory goes!

It was you that left Rolf. Your memory is doing fine up North, here.

I'm pretty sure I saw that bolt out at the right end of the roof in the fall while walking by, but I haven't been there since.

That pitch looks rad. I wonder what it'll go at??

Feeling fit and feral, gf and I had a day that didn't include watches or video.

How about Freeway first, then the Grand to Bellygood ? Smirked the grin...

What a fun day, running around the Chief twice with some very steep hiking between taking the forested trail down.

That's a lot of pitches and what was best is each lead egged the other guy on.

Saw 3 or 4 people hanging out on Wrist Twister from the parking lot today. One guy was either a really fast aid climber, or....

Met up with the elusive HarryHotDog tonight, at a tiki bar just off the strip.



Also pictured are Vegasclimber (Travis) and his lovely fiancé Christina. It was a lovely night enjoyed by all parties. Hope to get out with Harry on Sunday!

Marc-Andre and his friend Luke are working on a free variation of Wrist Twister which joins the upper section of Cerebrus.

This thread needs a bump. One of my climbing partners finally got a decent camera, so here are some shots from a few weeks ago in the Bluffs.

Byron on...? You tell me.

Yours truly, my beautiful woman keeping me off the deck. I never noticed how tight she keeps the rope, ha ha.

I miss the sun. Waiting for the dry in Squish seems almost strenuous sometimes, especially if you don't spend winters gliding around the snow on fibreglass or strapping knives to your feet and hands while hoping they don't cut your rope.
I got hopeful we'd have a nice spring after a great January, but here we are. I've turned to drink, I hope y'all are in better shape.

Sweet pics mark, first one appears to be the finger crack at clean starts.

Second one, I'm not sure,

You're right about Clean Starts, Luke. Surprised you didn't recognize the second one, as *somewhere* in this thread there's a pic of you on the same route with the same colour helmet giving out free tix to the gun show...

(I'm pretty sure it's you, anyhow, the angle's not ideal.)

Ya. It's tough when the thread author goes galavanting off too far flung climbing destinations... Thanks for the pix!!

Where you been, Mike?

Bumbling up candy-ass 5.8s at Red Rocks, that's where. It'll probably take him a full year to come to terms with Squamish climbing again. And he may have completely ruined his chances of ever climbing at Index.

Highly doubt that!! Sandstone is rad but granite is my first love. Index is a must also. As to the grades I've been climbing, well, you can't always get what you want... But at least I've been climbing 9 out of the last 11 days... Can you say that Dave??
