Beautiful Blue Shoes.....crazy mon wearing said shoes.
Had to look up Insouciance in Webbies.....haven't used that word in awhile. Smiles, lynne learning.

Edit: thinking you No Calers are a bit on the crazy side....but to be sure I'd better come up and check it out. I can certify you one way or the other. :DD

Say, MrE, a week ago I wouldn't have recognized that route.

It has a nice variety of sizes.

Including the ideal, for energy saving purposes, hand size.

Jaybro,

I hope you rescued this poor guy. I looks like he got totally stuck upside down. Man, this looks pretty bad, all the blood going to his head and all. This guy looks kind of familiar but I'm not sure I have ever seen him upside down before. How the heck did that happen, bad fall or something?

Then you see him climbing out of a fire pit or something. I looks like he is climbing AT NIGHT fer cryin our loud.

Actually, right after I took that photo, he quietly muttered, "help"and so I got on all fours under and kind of pushed him up so he could get his foot unlocked. You should ask im about it...

You guys and gals are crazy....but that will make me look good for a change :D

Edit: this is why when people (like donini and the wyde masters suggest trying more cracks I get a little nervous.) I like "no stickum's" meaning yo not getting stuck in a crack.....especially wrong side up.

Yeah, big Wide event last night.
email invitation to 44 people, only Stephen McCabe could make it.
No lines, no waiting!
The fog had rolled in, after a hot day,
but we were doing some serious perspiring (no sweat, right?).
A couple of weeks ago, we had six climbers, of whom four made it up the
crack without falling.
It must be about time to adjust the width again.

Oh Yeah,

If anyone wants to give this monster a go, shoot me a message and get onto
the invitation list.
That would surely be an improvement over the folks who say "don't take me off
the list" but hae never showed up in three years.

29 ft tall climb, overhanging, with little roof, changing corners, flared
pod, maybe 8 ft extra height one of these days...
