  1. Alpiners Anonymous: PDX dry tool night

    Wow! It's great to see old rocky getting a regular workout. Anyone interested in going up tomorrow, after 5pm? I was going to go up and do a little bouldering, but if other people show, I'd much rather go vertical.

    well, I hope all you kids had some serious fun out there in the serious rain! I ended up going to a job interview instead...
  3. transition to trad

    I second this. Aiding easy routes is a great way to get your placements wired. You'll learn what works and what doesn't real fast.

    I think I'm finally going to show my ugly mug again. Mmm... what delicious weather... Probably be there around 5:30. I'll try and bring a beater rope.

    Nah... I converted it to a single speed. Maybe once I get health insurance again I'll give fixe another go... How many collar bones can one man break?
  6. Injuries without Dignity

    Eh... I'm biking home from work last winter. Thought I was so cool 'cause I was riding a fixed-gear. I neglected to roll up my pant leg on the chain ring side. Who cares if you get a little chain grease on your jeans, right? Anyway, I had just come down off a hill on this little deserted side street. Not a soul in sight, totally clear road. Almost in slow motion, I watch in horror as my pant leg gets caught in the chain. Because it's a fixed gear, I can't coast so the pant-leg-chain connection slowly pulls me off me bicycle. Crash. The result - one small scratch on my elbow, and one very broken collar bone. I learned that yelling "fuck!!!" loudly enough in the middle of the road will eventually summon help. I also learned that people have very little sympathy for you if you had just broken your other collar bone riding a fixe 6 months prior. I don't ride fixe much anymore.
  7. Why is it...

    Maybe it's cause the routes that are failures on are often the most exciting... Most of my failures occured because things went horribly wrong and I got scarred shitless - thus they tend to stick out in my head.

    I'd buy the aiders and the fifi hooks if john didn't already snap 'em up. Sent a PM.

    Grant park? That's only a few blocks from my house. Guess I can't miss this one!

    Alright peoples, This weeks session was nothing short of awesome. Ivan was on fire, Tim cut shit up, Pandora was very nearly unstoppable, ajm left on-lookers speachless, Doug dazzled, and of course, NOLSe put us all to shame with his mad dry toolin' skills. It was, well, it was just another session. Hannah, showing us how it's done Tim, the new send-bot The legend himself, NOLSe busting out some M9 p.s. I think I got everyone's name right, but if not, I apologize. p.p.s. If you feel the need to relive the moment, more pictures are available here. There are some decent picture of all y'all, so check it out.

    When I finally make the decision to buy a set of tools, I know I won't buy any that don't have replaceable picks. It seems like such a waste when it should be such an easy feature to implement.
  14. what happens when ther is no skiing in Portland

    You shoulda' been out at 11pm. There was hardly a soul on the rock. Not that we meant to be out that late either...
