Grays Peak trip reports in August.

There's still space to breathe.

Except for the one we have planned, right? That would be the TR to top all TRs.

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Not sicking to the definitions of the YDS and Alpine Grading systems. :evil: :twisted:

Pretty foul and inconsiderate.

I'd like to add this one to my list also. Nasty. One time I was coming down the Mt. Antero road (near 11,500') and came up on a dude crapping in the middle of the 4WD road! Seriously, in the middle of the road. Paper galore :-&



:shock:

Just wow...

I'm not familiar with this apparently-newfangled way of using the word "really." Could someone describe it?

Another annoyance: using the word "loose" when the writer means "lose."

Oh. Is there some better way to express combined excitement and semi-disbelief?
