Ankle is pretty much healed other than occasional aches if I overdo. I haven't climbed since November, but am currently skiing (downhill/tele) 3 to 5 days a week & looking forward to some backcountry touring.
Can't wait to get back to climbing the wyde.
How's your shoulder and all?

Make that two boats, will travel. I still have the 17-foot Ram-X, "Tangerine Trip."
Stumbled across this little gem of Brutus and Em on the First Ascent of Mungebagged Chimney July 16th 2005.
What a filthy centipede filled death trap?! lol
You see, I had become brave after having recently acquiring a drill. With this new faux armor of degenerate courage, I thought retreat would be a cinch from anything that got nutty so I could go as high as I wanted without fear of being stuck out on the sharp end with no way of retreat.
And it was. lol I had gone up a short pitch to start this thing off a year or so prior with Clint S. who I had worked with at Western back in the day. Clint was game, so we set off on it. A shitty yellow TCU, broken rock, a centipede, and some odd number of feet, and I called it quits and bailed out on an anchor I set.
Brutus and Em used wyde gear and pushed it 4 munge filled pitches to the top! Epic.
