Thanks dude. My best angle. I got points deducted for using tape, but I got them back by going shorts...

Thanks for the beta steel--I was on the wrong side of the park.

So who HAS sent this thing? No doubt Hartouni-- Barefoot in a speedo.

It was loading so slowly that I gave up (and I've got DSL. Perhaps the world's slowest DSL, but dangit, I pay good money for this slow DSL). I'll try to download it at the office tomorrow. The suspense...killing... arg...

Hey Susan,

I'm glad to see the Inquisition didn't turn out to be too trivial. I didn't get any photos when I was working on this thing so it's nice to see these.

Since you asked, I did get the problem on my return a day or two later. To be fair though, I did tape my hand that I was doing the majority of the jamming with, in which case the problem was barely 5.8.

Russ, got any video of Big Bob's Big Wedge? That one seemed a little harder than the Inquisition

Blaine, this obsession is all your fault you kow. You did that thing? We don't believe it.....that thing is horrendous! Even Jay the offwidth machine couldn't do it.

Show us your magic!!! See you next season.


edit - sure does make for some entertaining video though.

first off, I don't do speedos, the LA zoo would be out to pick me up and take me back to the ape cage....
...second I don't do barefoot, I'd probably tape my feet....

and lastly, those guys are all bad ass...

Like I said to Gary weekend before last when he asked me if I was shopping for a partner who could lead 5.11, "Gary, you know it's not about the numbers, it's about how much skin you can loose"

BRAVO! Russ, Will, Jaybro, Steel... and all you JTree monkeys.

All in perspective, sometimes you have to take time out, smell the roses,

and psyche for the next attempt.

uuughh.. that thing looks tough..

Those contortions are best left for
the Cirque Du Solei or porno actors/actresses!

The Position: Piledriver
Difficulty Level: 7
The Move: It sounds like an urban legend, but it's real.

Start with a shoulder standspread the legs, then descend from above.

Say the Judges: "That's the one move that even I, the trained professional, refuse to attempt," says Wicked Pictures contract star Stormy Daniels. "It's the most uncomfortable thing you can get into, and people just don't look that sexy upside down. And the guy can't put any weight on the girl because he'll snap her back. But who cares about the guy in that position!"

that thing looks burl.

Hey Russ - you got any vid of Lucille?

also, if you want to reduce the size of your vids for the internet, I found that Super works pretty good, and free....

No Cubs hat? You look like a pale cholo at a Loverboy show with that bandana!
Did you and the crew give "Maneater" a go?

You guys are sick!

Anyone else wonder how Jabro can look so "relaxed"
hanging upside down in that hideous OW?
Obviously the mans got skills.

Russ, has that thing really been done before?

Nobody's surprised about working the offwidth but how about Mussy getting a haircut?

First thing I noticed in that video was the fact that Russ got a haircut. I almost couldn't tell it was Russ, what with the short white hair and the chiseled brisket!

Russ has white hair?
I figured somebody dumped their chalkbag on his head.

Susan, it's the cane hanging there in the picture that got me wondering...

Hmmmm. Knew I left my cane somewhere. Need a walker thesedays anyways.

Know any slots like that where a flab-stack works?
