bob, bob, bob.....<shakes head sadly> I taught you better than that. I told you that climbing cracks would lead to no good, and now look at you, saying bad things about mantles! I am sending you a coupon that i clipped for one electroshock therapy session at any psych ward on the attached list. Go there and tell them that you have bad thoughts about mantles and they will know what to do. Yer uncle ron is looking out for ya, bunkie.

Not at Woodson, but nearby on the same stone. Has anyone else out there done County Planning Commission? If it were actually at Woodson it'd be an absolute must-do tick.

Ron, Henny sent me to a 12-week finishing school a while back, but the elocution drills and napkin-folding lessons simply did not stick.

(sigh) I was sure that the 12 week course would make bvb a man of impeccable manners such as I am. Alas, twas not to be.

I'm stuck in OC over the weekend, maybe I'll wander by Rubidoux for some exercise. I'm going to look for an easy FA to do, and I think Welcome to Woodson would be an appropriate name. No doubt it'll be a mantle.

Who were you with Rick when I ran into you at Santee that day at the Carousel Boulder, was it you Ron? I was told of the "scale start" then as well...couldn't help but to shake my head and recall the seriousness that we kids were held to back then when we'd learn off such antics. Thank God for that piece of carpet, as small as it was, for it was like "sacred ground" where one could make peace with God and maybe even have a devotion, or say a silent prayer, similar to what a ballplayer would do before stepping up to the plate, brushing his cleats off, then going through a pre-pitch ritual before turning to the ump (belayer) to signal his readiness. We'd chalk our hands, simultaneously looking up to plan the moves ahead, with hopes of flashing the route, for if you took any tension or came off, you'd feel yourself nearly falling back to the ground, as the belayer knew it was his role to get you back to terra firma so the next guy could get his chance. Oh, and God forbid that you said a word while someone else was climbing, for you might get a finger in your chest saying, "You're next!" Good times though.

"bathroom scale" starts.
Yeah Me n Ron did a lot of short hard stuff BITD.
We concieved and coined that term to make those problems more "sporty".
Now don't get me wrong, all of us within our group felt that, dynamic starts on certain problems was cheating.

BTW if you heard it at Santee, and I was there, you heard it from me.
We were climbing w/ Beehay that day :)

yeah...I brought out a young talent with me that day. Jon Buellar

Gary, Ive climbed on the carousel approx. 3,000 times, (including a 25 lap circumnavigation of the boulder with pre placed beers on top to keep the strength up)and they kind of run together in my mind these days. I know i never used a rope on it, i free soloed all 10 feet of it every single time.

Bob - at least you learned to curtsey at the Hensel finishing school for wayward youths, so it wasnt a complete waste of time. Henny, were you responsible for putting bob in girls clothes to climb? He came back wearing those lycra ballet tights, and the first time i had to spot him i about got the dry heaves cuz i was bein forced to stare at his private weener parts which were pokin thru those stretchy pants he was wearing. If it was me id take some of those male enhancement pills before i put that thing on display, as it was no larger than one of those cocktail weenies they serve at the bar during happy hour,you know, the ones with a toothpick stuck in em.

I'm stumped Johann. But judging by the two monster oaks in the background, I'll guess low on the hill over towards or past Y-crack?

Johannsolo, It looks to me that "secret" location you took me n Ron to last year. You placed two TR bolts that day. The one pictured was the "left" of the two problems. Both in the .12 range. I remember "hip beleying " you on those. At the time you didn't name them yet.

Greg's Face or whatever that thing is on the way down to Hard as Nails. Maybe. Maybe not. Obviously I don't know.

However, one thing is crystal clear and totally obvious. It must be incredibly difficult to be an American Legend. People are constantly trying to knock you off the pedestal and drag you down into the muck and mire. When they can't produce a list of equally impressive feats they instead resort to the political tactic of diverting attention from their own lack of substance by ruthlessly ridiculing, mocking, and belittling the awesome accomplishments of those who have ascended to the heights. Achieving swoleness does seem to have a dark side. Those who naturally rise to such a rarified level of excellence must continually fight off the heel biting, sniping, petty, and even, dare I say, childish attacks from the peanut gallery.

We can only imagine how difficult it must be. I don't know how he manages.

And Im his PR man! I can only imagine what slander his detractors come up with....

so henny i should take that as a no?

Did people actually believe that there would be no long term fallout from fashions that put your johnson on full public display? What about my welfare?! Im scarred for life! PTSD, to go along with my ADD, OCD, BFD and BVDs

bvb has detractors? Say it isn't so. Why would someone want to do that? Oh, right...

Yes Ron, in this particular case you do have a valid point and I can fully understand why your welfare would trump. Thankfully I don't seem to recall suffering that trauma. Either that or I've managed to erase the memory over time.

Admit it Ron. You were simply jealous because this picture of sporting manhood so outSWOLED your beer-belly visage. The massive guns, the eye-popping chest, the delta force lats, the slim, svelt hips, the turbodiesel legs, the porn-star 'stach: sh#t, I had to ward off the climbing betties with a bat! Henny, you are spot-on. It's been a burden, but I do it all for my fans.

He-man, God O' Bob, Woodson diety, hero to Ron, crusher of mantles.
