yes please! Although I fear you underestimate my gumby-ness


Mine too! Haha. You should have seen me belly flop onto the upper ledge totally worked. It was gruesome!

I'm better at this type of "climbing"...

It's better to take cans. Much lighter. Park one in the chalkbag for the belay, of course. One must never overlook the necessity of adequate hydration. :-D

Here's a shot Isaiah got of me on Rainbow Bridge in the Garden of the Gods, last Sunday.
The crux is more or less the blank wall just below where I am at in the photo.

I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

So what was Isaiah hanging on to?

Scott, agree with Bill. Cool shots!!

Dave, yeah, the Mocs are great for Garden sandstone. Not exactly mud, but the closest we have over here. It falls apart when it rains. Does that count? :-D

Jay, Isaiah is 20. He can hang on to anything! :shock: Actually, he's a great young man, a fine climber, studying film at UCCS. There's a convenient bush to the left of the first pitch anchor, over which he rapelled, to place him just left of the crux area. Hope to see the video soon. Yes!
