Sweet.
I've not been Wall Climbing this year at all.

I suck. Keepin' the Faith, though. Stoke is always high. ALWAYS!

I'd give anything for a week off. Might be worth taking a mon and tues off before the cold/snow comes in. Want to do Liberty Cap but the little lady isn't feeling the approach.

Can't one of the Big Wall Forum big wigs set it up so that we can upload photos from our desktops to display in posts?

That's in Turkey? That looks just like The Kingfisher. A ringer, even.

This is probably way late and you probably already figured it out, but http://www.bigwalls.com/forum2/gallery/index.php can take uploads of pics.

I thought this pitch was gonna be knifeblades and beaks, turned out to be Purple camalots and green aliens for 120+ feet. 

WTF, wall season and no pix for months...

Mark, Munge, offset, cobble, anybody?

Been laid up with a busted ankle for the last 6 months. Thought it was sprained at first, but now looks like its broken. So bang goes my planned fishers trip. Now looking forward to getting back on El Cap next year. Here are some of my favourites from last year



Looking up the second pitch of Cowboys and Indians in Squamish



Looking up at the big f***ing roof system on Negro Lesbian before bailing



Looking back down the ridge on the Finger of Fate



4th (?) pitch of Zodiac courtesy of the stellar Mr Tom Evans.

Feeling all nostalgic now. See you at the bridge next spring?

You asked for it Mucci:

The future of bigwall pics. Checking out pictures of yourself on Zodiac while on Zodiac taken by a guy on a bridge who is not climbing Zodiac.


Obligatory Pigs in space and flagged ledge picture


Lenseflare it the future of actionsports photography


And I thought it was dangerous going for the nipple with no protection when I had my first girlfriend.


Aaaaand my favorite part of Munge and My last climb... unused iron. Makes me sad to see the pics on elcapreport of parties right behind us that tap tap tapped their way up the same route. I'm short, skinny, and often scared and there was NOWHERE on that route that iron was even preferable to clean gear, let alone necessary.

thx, do people usually get more gear in there? I must have been getting used to camhooks by then because it felt more secure to hang low on those than to scooch up on the daisies to make something squirrely fit in there. 

brass? tiny C3 black and blurple?

Ansel Evans Photo


Started talking to Briham last night while bouldering. He's heading up for Skull Queen. Gets me thinking about going up again.
