Friction Fest with Riley Wyna
Friday June 1, 2012 5:19pm


Meeting and climbing with Riley Wyna earlier this week was great, he suggested slab and off we went. The agenda was:

-Harry Daley 5.8
-Green Dragon 5.11b

and we filled Tuesday up with a long jaunt all the way to the Oasis via Goodrich Pinnacle.

Great climbing with a great guy. Thanks Riley!

So cool to see pictures of people climbing with the heel of their hands down or at least on the rock. Hey, you guys aren't gym climbers, are you?

You will have to teach me how to do a TR like this Kalen.
You are very talented - there are shades of subtle genius in there brother.

That pic of me sitting in my busted out truck is perfect.
"meet Riley Wyna" Bahahahaha

I was thinking on the drive back what the record is for toolings in a 24 hour period.
Along with the prank and the humus/bean sprout ticket I had four!
I think it will be one of my new goals in life to see how many times I can get a Ranger to say "tooling" while being tooled.

Kalen,
Lol - sometimes you eat the sprouts and sometimes the sprouts eat you!

Cosmic - very sorry - You know I often roll through in such a rushed state and functioning in such a limited brain capacity that I hardly know what is going on - it was all I could do to get a little climbing in and even then I ignored many responsibilities..sorry

Jan - Mouse was telling me your hubby used to call Apron climbing "girl climbing" LOL
Can you confirm? Lol
How the heck can 100 foot run outs be girl climbing?

Just the Maid and Eric - its cool we were both getting our slab on at the same time! Lol

Miss ya all...can't wait for the next party!

Dats true

And they don't wear DA Brim!

Lol

But...you are what you eat!
And you consume cheese, cream, meat, milk, fat and various other cow fats.

Still time for ya Cosmic - you can make yourself heart attack proof and heal all that damate caused by diet and smoking.

Just the facts brother

Nice work Kalen !

I really enjoy Harry Daley. In fact we did it the same day -- as I was walking down from there in the early afternoon I looked up and probably saw you guys.

Ya got my imagination going .. I've thought about those higher routes on the Apron off and on for a while ..
