recently? ha, this forum went down hill years ago. I used to post under my name until I got in a beef with someone from So Cal, so now I am Nor Cal (nothing to do with surfing).
I come by and lurk once in a while, but not too often. I posted last summer with the thought that I could get some slings back that my partner left in Tuolumne and I was abused. I recall that Locker had some nice things to say to me about leaving the slings behind! After all I am just a weekend warrior and not a hard man like he is!
I will post again, but it will be selective.
For what it is worth (and that is not much to the crowd) I started posting here over a dozen years ago.

JohnTP, glad to hear you're starting to climb again. I too flail, if you need a flailing partner, give me a ringalingding, I need to get my skills back in order and get back to climbing a lot more than I do now. Glad Rodger put this up, especially if we can get climbing again.

Ron, Thanks. I need to work on core strength and balance.

My point is that I probably would never have got back in the game were it not for the taco. It has taken some time and I am so lame; can we spell goober? But it is FUN!

JohnTP.... Good to get going again.

Come on out to Stoney... that will get you balance and core.

A lot has changed in 20 years, no?

Mark, not sure what you mean when you say, "you find what you're looking for." Are you saying that my buddies on top of the Prow were looking for trouble, which is why these guys were rude to them? Doesn't seem that way to me.

I was climbing the first pitch of one of my first routes in the Valley, Serenity to Sons, when Singer, comes rappelling down the pitch. I was a little uncomfortable on the pin scars but managing just fine. Right when he gets along side of me, he screams at me, tying to rattle me and as a way to say, "f*#k you." I've never encountered behavior like this in any other climbing area in 20 years of climbing. I'm not saying it's common in the Valley, because it's not. I'm saying it happens there more, regardless of what anyone is "looking for."

I may have given the mistaken impression that I'm leaving on a permenant basis, I'm taking some time out to decompress from the BS scenario.

I love S-T, and I love the people, so I can't simply walk away. It's a behavior issue; many people need to grow the fuk up and quit slandering and defaming others simply beacuse you don't agree with them.

Hey Rodger, this just seems like a good place to say hello to you!
Hope we get to connect in COR this year sometime.
Take good care, Phyl

Yo, Brokedown, consider posting if you're heading for the City of Rocks again this year. I'd like to say howdy. Missed it last year.
