Big Wall Stallin - how do you make amends?
« on: May 06, 2015, 12:33:26 am »
Forgive me father, for I have sinned. I have not exceeded 16 pitches in several weeks.

I have climbed in an impure manner. Touch, rub, covet, heavy on the covet father! <--George Carlin fans will get that one.


That's ok man! Tres a Marias!



I will climb several pitches this weekend if at all possible, and start up on big stone there after.


Hail Deuce, Full of Grace.

Sincerely
-MungeRatSlabDouche

Well, that proved to be a wash of a weekend.

Going back to free climbing next weekend then. F-it.

This winter, with its grasp upon my waking time, so easily believed when it whispers to me that my days dancing above thousand foot drops with tap shoes made of hooks and ladders are come and gone, shall find its prisoner uncowed, shaking upon quivering legs, thin as arrows plucked from a dusty quiver, gasping for breath like a fish used to the soupy oxygen of sea-level air, and will learn that a spirit, awoken in the brush of the wilderness does not so easily sleep and is not so easily put to rest.

Come to me stone, despite upcoming deadlines, despite the lingering avalanche of sleep debt, despite the whimpering mornings dressed in a harness shaped like a dress shirt and a rope tied into a half-windsor. My arms are open to help to slip on the pack, heavier, in truth, than all of the weight of the 9-5 and once shouldered, bounces above a step, now lighter than any since the winter came.
Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.
