  1. no, just a local old-schooler. Ed only gets out to take pictures these days
  2. its always nice in California. how's the weather up there? when you're older than old school you don't need a harness can't complain about sunny cragging in february... "good grief. that guy's old" c'mon down and check it out...
  3. jeez gene, i haven't heard from you in all this time and now i read this. i'm glad to hear you're okay, i hope those washington doctors are treating you well. sorry i wasn't around to help. i guess my airtime on the ringing flake doesn't seem so bad now--but it was the last time i was on the lower wall. get well soon and get yourself back to california, the sierras are missing you. cheers, Jay
  4. drop me a line when you get to sonoma county if you're looking for partners and i'll come out and meet you.
  5. how far south are you heading? there's some decent rocks all the way down to sonoma and marin county as well. goat rocks, dry creek crag, fisk mill cove, and mickey's beach to name a few.
  6. yeah, it sure is a drag when your partner falls with you hanging below, eh michelle?
  7. yeah, that's the one. we did it with a 50m though and had no problems.
  8. we found a good half-pitch to scratch our way up just down from the rap wall yesterday. the ice took some decent screws in spots and there was some steep snow and cool mixed moves for added spice. it wasn't much, and most everything else in the area was pretty depressing, but hey, we were ice climbing in washington--what more can you ask for?
  9. naw man, its fresh. unless you're looking for the funk, but then i'm sure we can make it smell however you want.
  10. i got a full-length super comfortable couch that's in decent shape if anyone's interested. its a vintage corduroy, and its even been slept on, among other things, by fred beckey. come get yourself a bit of cascades history, free of charge. who wants it?
  11. be sure to put hemingway buttress on the list. right off the road, sunny and warm in winter, and classic lines overseer, white lightning, and poodles are people too.
  12. as your physician, i also advise you to drink heavily...
  13. There's no reason to bring me into this.... aww c'mon sean, i've seen you climb and know at least 4 or 5 climbers worse than you...i might even need 2 hands to count them all! and way to ruffle some feathers there, dru. nice. that's hitting pretty close to home ragging on index like that.
  14. guess that depends on how you define pleasure. in my book they were hot dusty slogs with a little snow on the side. but then again, everyone sees things differently in the mountains...
  15. garmont vettas kick ass! they're basically a hightop version of the sticky weekenders. i took them out of the box and straight up stuart and they worked great. i wore them the whole time except for the gendarme and they climbed very well, and were almost as light as matt's air zooms and super comfortable. they cost a bit much if you pay retail, but man were my feet happy. until the end, that is, when i made them slog over long's pass--man does that ever suck.
