  2. Forget student loans- just auction your virginity

    CNN said the event will take place at the Bunny Ranch in Nevada
  3. Local Ice Publicity

    Article published in the Columbian newspaper yesterday about ice climbing in the Columbia River gorge. Nice work, Blake! http://columbian.com/article/20090107/SPORTS04/701089945/-1/SPORTS
  4. Abortion

    The thing that's always baffled me is that many conservatives don't want condoms to be handed out at school or birth control to be readily available to teens, but then these same people hate abortions. Kids are going to have sex whether abstinence is taught or not. I've always thought that the people who hate abortions would be the ones most eager to provide birth control so fewer unwanted pregnancies happen, but that doesn't seem to be the case...
  5. How'd you get started in climbing?

    Blake needed/wanted someone to climb with and started asking me to go to the Western WA climbing gym and Mt. Erie.
  6. where are you from?

    Born in Orange County, moved to Olympia when i was 6 yrs old and Bellevue (gross) when i was 9. Went to college in Bellingham and like to say i'm from there...

  8. Anyone live in Las Vegas?

    A friend and I are going to be heading to Las Vegas February 8-12 for a conference and climbing. We are poor grad school students and would like to camp in someone's yard or sleep on a couch (if you are cool with that) instead of staying at a hotel. PM me if you'd like to learn more about me (I am pretty normal and easy going) or think you could help us out! Thanks!
  9. Anyone live in Las Vegas?

    Found a place to stay. Thanks, all!!
  10. Autumn Colors this year

    Post more pics if you have them! I'm missing the WA foliage!! Colorado has boring leaves. The aspens are kind of cool- but mostly just yellow. The other trees have leaves that turn yellow or just brown and fall off. Someone told me that the leaves turn depending on the humidity of the region... I'm not sure if that's true but humidity affects the wavelength of the light getting through to the leaves and the leaves have different chlorophyll depending on what light wavelengths they use . Again- just something i heard.
  11. Anyone live in Las Vegas?

    The picture was taken in Boulder Canyon at a stream crossing. We didn't fix the ropes like that- someone else did.... but thanks guys for the rope management tips...

  13. THE SPEECH !!

    Back on topic- this really was a great speech. I think the end really showed Obama has a lot humility.

  16. Top Ramen

    I had macaroni and cheese for breakfast this morning. I think it's a couple steps up in noodle hierarchy.
  17. For all those chalk haters out there, this is for you: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11411778?ordinalpos=9&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum Coating (chalk vs no chalk), dampness (water vs no water) and rock (sandstone, granite and slate) were manipulated. The results showed that chalk decreased the coefficient of friction. The counter-intuitive effect of chalk appears to be caused by two independent factors. Magnesium carbonate dries the skin, decreasing its compliance and hence reducing the coefficient of friction. Secondly, magnesium carbonate creates a slippery granular layer. We conclude that, to improve the coefficient of friction in rock climbing, an effort should be made to remove all particles of chalk; alternative methods for drying the fingers are preferable. I am not arguing yay or nay for chalk (there are past threads for that if you want it), but I just thought it was interesting.

    Yes, I think you should
  19. Washitonians do it better

    So i just moved to Denver, and I have gone out climbing a couple of times to some local crags. It's nice to have climbing 20 mins away, but PEOPLE BOLT CRACKS HERE AND IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY!!!!! I think Washitonian route setters are smarter than the route setters here in CO. Sorry, i just wanted to complain a little...
  20. Washitonians do it better

    It was in Clear Creek Canyon at Wall of the 90's and also some climbs at North Table Mountain in Golden, CO.
  21. TENDONITIS - medical recommendation needed

    If it is a chronic problem most likely you have scar tissue in your tendon and just resting it won't heal your elbow completely. Sometimes tendinitis means you have a muscle imbalance. One muscle may be weaker therefore the tendon is taking on some of the stress that the muscle is supposed to take on so it's getting worked unusually hard and the body responds by trying to reinforce the site by providing extra support (scar tissue). Anyway, to properly assess your situation I recommend seeing a physical therapist. Usually PT comes before cortisone shots, surgery, etc. They can use massage to work some of the scar tissue out. They can also tell you if there is muscle imbalance and work on strengthening the muscle(s) so this doesn't happen again. Hope that helped a little!

    Yeah, i moved here to go to Physical Therapy school. But maybe in 3 years i'll go to rope-up and then i can fix any climbing injuries and if i can't make it,at least give ya'll advice in the fitness forum.
  23. Ropeup 2008 Oct 10-12

    I wish I could go, but i just moved to Denver. The past few years have been so fun! Party on!
