  1. Any one want to hit some easy rock on Monday the 17th or Tuesday the 18th. I was thinking something like the tooth or equivalent. Thank! Doug
  2. Rock partners aug 3-7

    Hello, im looking for partners August 3rd -7th I blew up my knee last year with a partial MCL tear that’s been a real pain to get to heal, so Im looking for a nice easy pace... I made it up the cascadian coulouir and up Columbia peak the last couple weeks ( nice and steady, but by no means fast) and think I may Be on the mend, but I don’t want to push it yet. I’m hoping to find someone who want to do easy alpine rock or some cragging. I have a medium alpine rack and rope and a couple objectives in mind, so hit me up if this sounds good!

  5. rap wall sunday

    I'll be heading up to rap wall on sunday the 12th to screw around with a new pair of monopoints to get the feel for them. If any one wants to take a jog up there with me your more than welcome to get in touch with me and go scratch the tools on the rocks. I plan on heading up around 10 am and I'm not exactly planning on setting a record pace to the wall. I've got rope, draws and a car... so if any one wants to head up, pm me.
  6. weak arm

    This sounds promising, I hook my ice tools on the frame of my balcony window at my apartment and rip off leash less pull up’s. If I choke up my grip to the head of the tools, it seems like I would get the same effect. I’ll have to give this a try.
  7. weak arm

    Here’s a quick and hopefully simple question. I just broke into the 5.10+ range and have begun to notice that my dominant arm has significantly more strength and endurance. I’ve been trying to concentrate on isolating my weak arm when I’m bouldering at the gym, but I don’t feel like I’m building much strength or endurance. Short of lifting weights in addition to my work out, does anybody have any good trick to help
  8. STP?

    STP= stone temple pilots?
  9. 7-17 anything

    If some one wants to get out on monday the 17th send me a pm. I was thinking exit 38 or 32 or even the tooth. I have a car, rope and rack. My plan was to hopefuly get out by 10 am and be back by late afternoon. I climb 5.10 on a good day and lead sport around 5.9 and 5.7 trad. I'm up for anything, so if you want to get out drop me a message and i will get back to ya by late tonight.
  10. something now!!!!!

    I'm just sitting around looking outside and the funk from A failed rainier attempt is starting to lift but I'm not ready to forgive my regular partner for being a retard. If anyone else is just sitting around thinking getting out side would be a good idea today give me a pm. I have car, rack, rope.

    Here is something interesting I ran into : Test targets addiction gene BY WILLIAM SHERMAN DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER A simple test revealing genetic predisposition for drug and alcohol addiction will be available within the year and researchers are urging mass testing - even of babies. The genetic marker is the A1 allele, identified by Dr. Ernest Noble of UCLA, and the test he developed is a swab of saliva inside the cheek later sent to a lab for analysis. Citing statistics on teenagers and the dangers of substance abuse, Noble and other experts said that early testing - coupled with monitoring and education of those with positive results - can help reduce underage drinking and narcotics use. "With the test we can get parents to concentrate and educate children on the problems of drugs and alcoholism when they're younger and more amenable to prevention," said Noble, professor of psychiatry and director of the UCLA Alcohol Research Center. "It's like any other disease, and if you identify it early, like diabetes, you've got a better chance of defeating it," he said. The patented test will cost about $35, said Noble, adding that kits are now being developed by a West Coast pharmaceutical firm. His research was funded by a $1 million grant from the Christopher D. Smithers Foundation, of Long Island. "The test is going to be very meaningful for education and prevention of alcoholism and drug addiction," said Adele Smithers-Fornaci, foundation president. She noted that the research also showed that children of alcoholics are more likely to develop the disease. "Once you've had this terrible disease strike your family you don't want to see it repeated, and this test is a terrific diagnostic tool," said Smithers-Fornaci. Stacia Murphy, president of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, said the test should be viewed as preventive health care. "The test, the genetic marker, gives parents armor in dealing with kids when they're talking about substance abuse," she said. Mitch Rosenthal, president of Phoenix House, the drug rehabilitation center, said, "There is no more valuable tool in prevention and education than early indicators." "Noble has done the world a great service," he said. Originally published on February 11, 2006 Interesting to think about some of the social and legal implications of this test.
  12. [TR] Mt. Kent- North Face 2/19/2006

    I have a copy of the kloke guide but it is packed away in a storeage locker right now. If I rember right the most of the climbs Seemed more like hikes and scrambles the actual climbs. If I’m correct, all the actual “ice” routes are covered in the Washington ice guide. It hits on Kent, Abiel, and I think New York gully on Snoqualmie. I’m moving in a month and will be able to unpack all my books, so if you don’t find a copy before than, you are more than welcome to borrow mine.
