Thanks for the full round up, Larry!

Just a slight drift:
Two remarks to your nice picture of Copenhagen:
1: The great building on the left will (hopefully) soon be turned into one of the highest indoor climbing walls in Europe.

2: Went up the spiral stairs on that central tower (Frelser Kirke) with my girls a few months ago. Youngest takes no notice of the 60+ meter above the streets; the other begging me to take them down again.

That's a lovely windblown photo of your girls, Michael. And Copenhagen's a fine city.

Hah hah! When the blocks can be wiggled with your hand that IS running it out! (it is a Zero)
Looks a lot more like a Zero to me. And I'm not sure I'd call 4 feet of rope running it out, AC...

Nice stuff Chiloe and you other dudes too! Woot!

Scariest route I've done in years was only 5.8.

5.8 was all I ever aspired to...

Moby Grape at Cannon, yesterday.

A few of the pitches are carved into beautiful, seemingly solid granite slaps. Others make cairns along the approach look bomber. An early start, clouds, and a little thunderstorm meant the cliff temps were close to perfect. And, after 6 months of "working" on adding training weight, 5.8 was just right. The hike down was another matter. Car thermometer read 92 in the shade, and I was hurtin'...still am today!

Moby Grape has some of the best rock on Cannon, but I recall thinking there were whole pitches that could just fall off. Perfect granite that's not attached to anything.
