Finesse Makes Best.
It is an artful, expedient, and joyous way to approach life in general.
This is exemplified in the smooth moves made by women moving over stone.


CragDarlins’ -post up yer proudest girlfriends.
CragsMen -let's see yer moms, sweet hearts, daughters.
Uberdolls -by all means post up yer own darlin' mugs.
EverydayGals –You are the rule and the gift of the female presence, Post Up!
(ya'll got it, so flaunt it)


A few basics along the avenue toward Finesse,

Power, Economically Applied:

Position, a Kinesthetic Necessity:

Humor, the Backbone of the Whole Affair:

So,
With those notions in mind,
Start young and stay young-
Or aspire to that feeling,
And finesse will come:

Pardon me Woody,
Not to intrude,
But I thought I'd bump that smile a bit:
Tolerance carries the ring of Finesse eh?

Here ya go, Tarbousier... A (noncharacteristic) taste of the Tennessee Wall for you:
Nope... not jugging' the rope. I had to move it out of the crack so that I could get in the crack. Fun route, and one I've led, but the arete to the right is fantastic and a much more appealing (IMO) route.

Found another for ya:

Nice photos and great thread as always Tarbuster.

My three year old after climbing Half Dome outside the cables. I received a lot of crap for it from the other hikers because they thought I was endangering her life.

Dirtineye,

She was very happy. When we got to the trail she ran the whole way down to Happy Ilses.

Ken, nice, I Know your child was safer than that usual donkey trail.

Mark what's the story on 'Saturn Return'? Looks great on great rock!

Is that an old 'Becca photo? I recall more extensive, VW-based tats.

just in case "finesse" also includes smiling through BIG exposure...


and I guess there is no finesse to bouldering random fist cracks in the desert (that ain't chalk, just looks like it) in your hiking shoes....but keeping the matching hat and scarf on while you are doing it adds "Panache".

jaybro,
the photo of becca was taken in the fall of 2004.

saturn return is at one of the newer central oregon crags that has stacks of unclimbed cracks. if you like basalt cracks you'd love the crags around here. feel free to contact me if you head to oregon and i'll give you some beta.
