Non Climbing (if you must) / Appoligy
« on: March 29, 2011, 03:59:07 am »
 I  just want to say I know I have told off lots of people and gotten offensive in the past. In the future I will try not to do that anymore. I went back and deleted some of the more offincive stuff that I wrote. If you want me to delete anything that I said to you just let me know. I also quit drinking.
 I'm still alive-sorry about that.

What do the others here do while in the portaledge and after they get to the summit. Does anyone follow a different unit of time measurment?
For example it is the beginning of a new month. Except I find a problem with this concept because when I charted the moon last night and right now it is not a full moon or a new moon.

Big Wall Trip Reports / *wet denam daydream*
« on: June 14, 2009, 12:53:27 pm »
My first wall has been bagged and burned. didder and I started at 7;00 pm and climbed untill 11;00pm the next night. 

 Wall-this is my first big wall summit.
 Do I get extra credit for climbing wet denim daydream-as a first wall?
does the 15' roof top out mean I am ahead of the other rookies?
Didder post some of the photos here.
                                           Thanks.

Big Wall Forum / How many sets of nuts?
« on: December 10, 2008, 12:12:13 pm »
 I was wondering how many sets of nuts is acceptable.  I currently have three sets sizes 1-5, and two sets sizes 6-13.

Should I have three full sets?

I attempted the prow one time and I had too much gear.

Big Wall Forum / Climbing books
« on: January 18, 2008, 02:25:26 am »
I have a few favorites here that I have been reading. Climbing free by Lynn Hill. I just got my hands on the book and I can't put it down. I am not usually the biggest reader, but it seems that almost anything insperational, and well writen; wich is climbing oreinted has drawn it self to my brain. LIKE A MAGNET THAT IS. I am currently on page 114. There is 270 pages in this book and I am uncertian if I will sleep untill I clean the last pitch. Another cool book that was brought to me today was El Capitan By Daniel Duane. This dialouge has roughly 145 historically driven pages. This will be my second reading of the book. I still remember the onsight. I picked up the lead with a slow pace, and was soon rushed with insperitonal photos. Cover to cover onsight.  Other books of intrest Big walls By Don Reid A treasure in itself. Big Walls by Chris RcNamara and Eric Sloan. Bigwalls By John Long and John Middendorf-excllent instructionals and a first rate gathering of technique. Big walls elite techinique By Jared Ogedon I think a revision of this book is in order I was slightly disappointed with the jugging technique described, and mislead by the title of elite technique I did learn a cool trick for lowering my haulbag through overhanging terrain though(all the better). About 25 magizines(climbing and rock and ice with one alpinist). Actually I think that my knowledge has solely been driven through books and expiermenting with solo techniques. With the exception of sport climbing instruction via bogious certification. I learned it all sneaking onto the water tower in the middle of the night, climbing trees, and hiding from the bears in the valley. If the bears don't get you the birds will. They will even peck through a backpack for those thought to be safely stashed goodies. Oh wait I am off route back to the book I was reading.
