  6. George Carlin 1937-2008

    Not written by Carlin, but "Dr." Bob Moorehead, former pastor of Overlake Christian Church, who resigned as head of the church when he was found to have molested several male parishoners. Now that's something Carlin would have had fun with. There's surfeit of material swirling around t3h int@rn3ts falsely attributed to Carlin. Check out snopes.com for the full lowdown. The man was ahead of his time in some startling ways. His "Airport Security" routine from 1999 eerily presaged 9/11. I imagine he's pretty pissed off right now, feeling he had left so much unsaid.
  7. Helmets for cragging - likes & dislikes

    If a cragging fall is your concern, then the so-called softshell is the way to go. I have a BD Tracer for cragging and can honestly say I don't even notice it on while climbing. One thing to note when selecting a helmet is the difference between CE and UIAA certification. Both organizations test the same, but their standards differ, with the UIAA being the more stringent. It's been a few years since I examined a range of helmets, but back in 2004 or so, there were at least a few Euro helmets on the market that didn't sport UIAA cert. Both the Tracer and the Meteor III pass UIAA. It's also interesting to note that they haven't yet mandated a test for impact in a fall. They test vertical and perimeter impact with a 5kg weight, measuring the force transmitted, but that really doesn't equate at all. In all the years I've been climbing with my father, he's only ever climbed one route sans lid. He's been cragging for over 45 years and is the coolest climber I know. If he sees the sense in wearing a helmet, everyone should -- 'nuff said.
  8. Anyone here bolted basalt?

    For the most part, the Tieton is andesite, not basalt, and while it forms similarly at a macro level, it's definitely different structurally. Anyway, if you're looking for expert advice on drilling in the Tieton (and on whether you should drill there at all), you should PM andyf.
  9. Eastern Washington Boldering

    If you're in need of some kitty litter, then yeah... Not worth your time, especially with what's up there somewhere in the O.K. Noggin.
  10. Infinite Bliss chopped- true or false?

    Er, were you thinking of me?
  11. Offwidths in Leavenworth

    RE: the backside of Grand Central at Peshastin... Vertigo has more of a chimney on its upper half, not really an off-width. Empire State possesses a few off-width moves here and there, but doesn't stand out as an off-width per se, especially with all its face holds. Bomb Shelter definitely isn't an off-width either. I remember belaying Jens on that ages ago... not that a belay mattered, as the kitty-litter rock and aged fix pro probably wouldn't hold the bodyweight of an infant. T'was a nice on-sight on Jens's part.
  12. Suggestions for Yos.

    That's where Bishop's Terrace is, if'n I recollect correctly. Tasty two-pitch 5.8 with a super-short approach. I'll also second the recommendation on Central Pillar of Frenzy -- just make sure to pack a #4 Camalot for the wide stuff on it and don't venture beyond the fifth pitch. If you're looking to push yourself, consider Serenity Crack, if it's not too hot.
  13. inspiring books about female climbers

    Alison Osius, of Climbing/Rock & Ice (and Lynn's ghost editor on Climbing Free), has Catherine Freer's personal journals and papers. Hopefully she'll one day find the time to write Freer's bio, as Freer certainly stands out as one of America's best all-around female climbers. One can only imagine what she'd have achieved had her life not been tragically cut short. Sadly, a lot of women climbers these days are largely ignorant of her legacy.
  14. crack climbing sucks

    As do a host of other hardmen. Jay Smith (another person who's tougher than anyone on this board) has one of the most elaborate taping routines I've ever witnessed. Taping is less about compensating for poor technique and more about compensating for weak skin. Some people are lucky enough to have thick hides that can withstand a belt sander. The rest of us have to opt for a little epidermal augmentation.
  15. Hugh Banner passes on

    I had the honor of meeting Hugh a few times. He was a classic old-school Brit climber: short, stout, and full of mirth. And oh did he ever love to talk about gear. He had an amazing prototype of a much updated Dyneema helmet, which will likely never see the light of day.
