Gumby (1/14)



  1. You go on a climb with 3 nalgenes. You come back with two and only one is original. You go again and come back with one and its one you lost the first trip. And so it goes.... You dont really OWN a nalgene, you buy it and donate it to the global pool of lost bottles......
  2. Diedre- fell at the step up/over 1/2-way up the dihedral. I just kept skidding down the rather grinding granite. When it all finally stopped I looked up to the last piece I'd placed (that held) and noticed that ALL the other pieces on the pitch were gone. I asked my belayer where they had gone and he says "oh, they all fell out before you fell, I didn't want to scare you so I didn't tell you. This taught me two things: If I don't learn to place gear I will soon be dead and my climbing buddy has the judgement of a drunk flea. I also learned that any fall on Deidre is so lame that I should probably start golfing with the blown-tendon guy.....
  3. While getting geared up for Outer Space, from way above, in a cracking, terrified voice- TAAaaaake, for the love-a-GOD TAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!!! This was a few minutes before I said- Did you just piss right there on that tree? Yeah, why not? Couple minutes later the goat shows up and drives us off the ledge. THATS WHY, You friggin' idgit!!
  4. What time is it when you see a Mountie Chicksa bent over a climb? Mountin' Time!!!
  5. About two years ago I tweaked a finger on Princley Ambitions and built a hefty belay out of 3 large hexes to get lowered off. Me and my buddy stood around for awhile to see if we could con someone into snaggin' it down but left it there. Did anyone of you BootyMasters get my goods?
  6. Hey, fuckin' WOW!! Someone actually answered! I must really exist! Somehow I don't feel real unless the computer says so......I just scored a job running a bike/ski tune shop, so I'll hang with this setup for now and pro-deal some way sweet skiis for next season......
  7. Ok, thats it!! You had your chance! I just got a better job and dont need the money anymore. I'm keepin'em! Not for sale! Actually, its a relief, I didn't wanna sell'em anyway, I was just way broke. See you out there......
  8. Hey, I got the size 12/13 boatfeet boots on sale over in FS- Randonee Setup $450. Just cuz yer feet'r big don't mean ya can't sell yer boots!
  9. Ok, someone talk to me. 45 looks and no replies. Is the price to high? Is my narrative weak, lame and inadequate? (like my climbing?) Is everyone only interested in super lightweight boots instead of these heavier boots? Sure, you gotta replace the skiis, I got'em free from the REI shop. I mean, they're skiable as is, but they're not Tua Excalibers thats for sure. OK, CHRIST!! I'll toss in the skins. WHATS THE DEAL?
  10. Raichle Concordia Tech S boots. Size 12 with ThermoFit liners installed for my size 13 boatfeet. They fit the EasyGos and DynaFit Lite bindings. These boots are on the ski boot end of the scale. I still have the original laceup inner boots. They are brand new with Merino wool liners. The ThermoFits have only been cooked once. Jim Mates at Custom Boot Service can still cook the liners to your feet. (http://customboot.8m.com/) The bindings are Silvretta EasyGo's. The whole setup has only been used 3 times. It looks brand new wear-wise except for a couple scratches. I am selling the boot/binding setup and GIVING AWAY the beat-to-shit Elan MBX skiis the bindings are mounted to!!! email me at jtflyfisher@hotmail.com $450 If I can find the skins I'll toss those in for another $20.(http://www.outdoorreview.com/pscSki,Equipment/Alpine,Ski,Boots,2000/Mens/Raichle,Concordia,S,Tech/PRD_14617_1544crx.aspx)
  11. I've been using a Coleman Xtreme stove for a while now and it has replaced all my other stoves except for the XGK. Its not light compared to a soda can but it is next to an MSR. Burns super hot and simmers great. The fuel canister feeds the fuel as a liquid so it does not lose efficiency in the cold. The cans are also recyclable. And no priming.
  12. Southwest Rib of South Early Winter Spire Sunday then Beckey route Tues. Two things: One: Goddamn am I fat and slow! Fuck! Two: The gully into the Beckey Route can kiss my ass. You'll have to have a large hand gun to get me there again.
  13. I was very new to the rock and we were up on Guye Peak. About 4 or 5 pitches in my leader hit a move he could not make. He set the rap anchor with the #10 Stopper he had found fixed right there. There was no backup at all, the anchor was a solitary, found piece. He looked at me and said, "this is going to be the smoothest rap of your life!" It took two more incidents like this to get me to quit climbing with the dude. So I'm a slow learner. BTW- Didn't you get him to mix YOU a couple screwdrivers? [This message has been edited by jtflyfisher (edited 09-05-2001).]
  14. This past week I have been in contact with MM about the trip I have scheduled with them this weekend. When all the other clients bailed, it left just me on the trip. A statement was made by MM staff that if the trip goes with only one client they will not only not make $$ they might lose some (after overhead) but the guide will. It seems that they are standing up to the agreement and letting the trip happen anyway. Why am I saying all this? MM as a business is playing the game with good Karma. With me at least.
  15. Where and how big are the logos? [This message has been edited by jtflyfisher (edited 09-05-2001).] [This message has been edited by jtflyfisher (edited 09-05-2001).]
