Got Dates!
« on: April 07, 2010, 08:17:21 pm »
April 29 - May 11.

My partner wants to free climb mainly and he's good at it so I think maybe Gold Wall.

Then he'll drop me at the end of the road.  Hmm . . .

Sweet, Chris! Go get it, man. Bust out a quick solo when you're done if you can. So many great small walls...but you have to do do WFLT if you haven't.

Thanks guys.  I am hoping to get on something on the east face of the Column and save WFLT for another time but WFLT may be faster than anything I'd try on the Column so we'll see.

I'll be there for a long weekend from the 22nd to the 26th. Hopefully we'll get in some off-width practice to get ready for Freerider.

I'll be there May 1st-14th. Only plans so far is giving Steck-Salathe a go with a buddy and possibly a solo of Leaning Tower. If anybody needs a partner that second week of may give me a holler.

Hoots must be expecting a big Tax Refund this year Notice the timely start date. More than likely has a little coin already in the bank, Files on the 14th, Starts his climbing season, Refund comes in, figures he is good until Oct. I like It :)

haha, I still gotta work around there, off and on from june til mid september... and who wants to be in the valley during the middle of summer anyway.  backcountry pig wrestlin is in the plans...
and that just means that all you guys can count on a stoked partner being around if you're in need!
as a fledgling member of this cool little sub-community, it would be sweet to organize some sort of BW.com beer night mid may when a lot of us are going to be around...  any takers?

When I'm in the Valley this June, I'm either going to be on one wall or getting ready for another. After my solo I'll probably hang around for a day or two but then I have to blast home. It'll be hard to plan anything around my schedule. I'll certainly try to meet up though, drinking beer is a favorite pastime of mine!

Beer & dates are good together, too.

I'm swingin' the Bridwellfest trip, but, I have, at present, no "public" plan on the Big Stone.
Yet.

Nice Smack, if I am still around, and on the ground, I may drop by to cheer ya on, or hump loads, or....

  I put ya in the BBerry. Good luck, not that it has anything to do with it.

I'm 97% packed for my Grape Race/Tribal Rite solo (another Digging a Hole Motivational program comment there also). I have all the water, dehydrated food and snacks packed away. I still need fresh food for sandwiches, beer and ice.

I'm having Sailworks modify a couple of the smaller Metolius Haul Packs for me. I'm having them put gear loops inside the packs. I'll use one as a general junk bag to drag under the haul bags and the other as my tag rack bag. With the gear loops, it'll be all organized for when I haul it up, mid-pitch, and have to rummage through it to find a particular pieces of gear.

I did that with mine too - haulpacks and smaller haulbags.

I'd suggest having them add one small loop to girth hitch a daisy chain to.  Or they could sew simple daisy chains right into the haulbag.

Sure would be nice if metolius added those in the factory...

Home now.  Good trip but a little different that I had imagined.

Day 1:  Arch Rock.  Supplication (10c), Anticipation (11b), Midterm (10b, heh), Leanie Meanie (11b).  Ouch.

Day 2:  Gold Wall (V, 5.11, A0).  Double Ouch.

Day 3:  Five Open Books, 5 pitches rest day.  Looked at Afroman.  Got scared.

Day 4:  Started the Prow solo.

Day 5:  Continued on Prow.  Let a party pass and was significantly delayed.  Got to hang out with a genuine bigwall legend for a few hours while his partner led a pitch.

Day 6:  Bailed from top of 5 due to "lack of water" but really because I was worn out.

Day 7:  Home.

Epilogue:  Won the 40+ category at a 9 hr mtb relay race yesterday; 3rd place overall in the race.  Way easier than bigwalling.  It is good to be home.

Thanks for all the moral support and positive psyche everyone.

I have a very long trip report with many photos that I will post somewhere eventually.

Right on, Chris. Nice agenda and a productive trip overall.

I always put the longest route first on the docket. For me/us small outings first usually quell the fire for the big one. You can't complain about the prizes you came home with, though. Nice...

Cheers.

awesome!

I feel so unproductive right now.

I got plans scheduled out, Freak Show being one of them, but man, seems like so much is happening in the Valley and lots of folks are there.

all I managed to do was put a couple of starter bolts on some choss piles and hiked around for a couple hours Sat and Sun.

gotta get motivated and get some shiz done and get strong! 

know what I mean?
