BAMB!

Guess who's working the nightshift, sitting at work bored on new years day- this guy. Might as well start the new thread.

Stories, sends, photos, and all forms of humor- apparently this year is the end so lets make it a good one.

I count at least 12, if you include problems that are only partially visible. Can't quite tell if you can see the top of Lemon Chifon or not.

Hey P-owed,

Did you use my cams for your first route of the year?

Maybe your new year's resolution should be to come clean and pay me for the cams I sent you over the summer?

Still waiting for that check.

Last climb of 2011 was the 5.11 traverse on the rough boys boulder at woodson. The first climb of 2012 was bolting a support frame to the top of a 20' wall at work.

You can just make out the tops of the two face climbs in the corridor behind the Uncertainty boulder. +16.

Ron, pretty sure we did that sharp chossy hard crack between the two 5.11 face problems on the right hand edge of the photo?

+17

I recently received this email from a visiting Vedauwoo hotshot:

"If you are the fellow who posted the picture of Undertow with the more detailed trail description on RC.com,then THANK YOU! I am from out of town and have been dying to get on that route for years, I even have bushwacked some of that hillside years ago looking for it and scoured the internet looking for adequate directions, so thank you so much for providing just that on my most recent search. Anyway, we went straight there with your directions and had a great time getting spanked on it. MAD props to Piggot or whoever put that up, as I think that is one of the finest climbs of it's ilk anywhere. I came just shy of the TR send (bad idea, rope will thwart you) but hope to return tomorrow to try and eek out a lead. Sorry for such short notice, but if you want to get out with us tomorrow we would love to have you along. Thought I would throw that out because if it is the same here as anywhere else, I imagine finding a partner for those routes is harder to come by. Anyway,take care,"

-------------------------This message was sent by Mountain Project user Justin Edl.



I'm in New Jersey as I speak, and obviously couldn't commit but I encouraged Justin to document his attempts via photos and videos. Maybe some rare eye candy will be posted in the near future! If anyone is interested, contact Justin via mountainproject.

Speaking of tick lists and young Justin/Wilber, here he weighs in on some (wide) crack controversies

yah bob that crack is kinda sealed off n crappy - ugly 10a/b. if you count the top of lemon chiffon and the face climbs right and left of it = 20 Add bozo no-no and the joker (both visible in profile) and you have 22.

Suffice it to say that theres a high density of climbs in that immediate area. If you count the other climbs on those rocks that you cant see, you would probably end up with around 50.

Mantle problem(s) on the bobby brown boulder, barney rubble in the distance, etc, etc. Would it be a stretch to count baby robbins?

Jaybro -- this is the only photo I have of VP's Office. Dosen't show how steep and burly the first 15' are, but you get an idea. When you fall you go flying out of there. I was able to get absurdly bad fist jams by sticking my thumb out as far as it would go and fishing around for the little narrow inconsistancies in the crack. Anybody out there got better snaps?

Best part is when you clear the roof totally pumped and you're looking at 20 feet of overhanging way thin hands/off-fingers.

Doug, with the way you waltz most of the hard cracks up there, how come no action on VP Office...or have you already ticked that one too?

I only have two memories, with Ken Klis, on VP. We made no progress on the bottom of that thing and, like Bob already stated, would take the GIANT swing into space after coming out of it. Rapping down it I can remember seeing the overhanging off-hands to fingers that proceeded after that bottom section...sick! Like always, it would be cool to see someone on it after all these years.
