  1. Rad, after having worked the route on TR or bolt to bolt on lead, then move towards this. One of the ways it helps is to break the route into sections and then train yourself physically and mentally to climb through each bit. Often, people will fall mid-crux time after time and there is a mental block that is created, i.e. "this crux is way too hard, no way im going to send this" when the truth is that you can do the moves.

    I do virtually the same thing, but instead of going top down, I go to the last bolt before the place I am falling, rest, then climb through the sequence to the top

  2. super cold over there. it hasnt gone above freezing since it was cold on the west side. i just talked to my dad (who has no climbing experience)and he said there are a lot of thin blue ice bands all over the face.

    im not there but if i had to guess, it would be brittle and thin.

  3. If anyone has any way to get in touch with squid, I need to talk to him asap. please either pm me his info or get my info via pm and have him contact me asap. This is important.


  4. It depends on how badly you want to send it. I have a friend who tried a route for an entire season, then took a season off from it just to stay sane, then got back on it the 3rd season and sent it mid-way through that. On the other hand, I have tried some routes that seem like something I am interested in linking up and after several tries, realized that I would get more climbing in if I just let it go.

    If it's truly important to you, train more. If it's a mental and physical drain, let it go.

  5. i like pete's eggnest, about 10 blocks north of mae's as an alternative for b-fast, although voula's is my greasy spoon of choice.


    the traveler on leary ave that opened about a month ago is a bit overpriced for most things, but the sweet potato fries with chipotle aoli hit the freakin spot!

  6. yes, acopas are totallyfuckingawesome.com

    i have had many pairs and wear through them until they are no longer useful. if i remember correctly, if you order them online and they dont fit, you can just mail them back to re-size. also, i emailed john when i wanted to try a different model, gave him my street shoe size, he emailed me back with the correct size for that shoe and they were spot on.

    i also think that climb max down in pdx has them if yorue ever there and somewhere in oly reportedly has some acopas
