Have you ever been so in the zone on a lead that the gear is almost superfluous? I had this experience yesterday, and apparently I hum quite a bit. Hm.

I find screaming my head off does wonders for my concentration! HAHAHAHA

 

My very hardest redpoints have been when i've given up and have to climb the route to pull gear down to leave and never return...pressures off and i just climb...

I realized yesterday that regardless of what is going on, I can still dial into the zone. Then, nothing else matters.

 

I ran the gammut from James Brown to Johnny Cash to Confederate Army marching songs.

Yeah, or Black Sabbath on occassion. When I start singing "Crystal Ship" by the Doors, it's time to untie and float to the top.

I haven't but I think I need to start. Got a title I could snag at Barnes and Noble? Can I substitute whiskey?

 

Yeah, that dude really gets me out there with his lyrics. I used to drive the freeway in Indiana at night listening to his music. I always wondered what it would feel like to drive into the ditch. Just for the experience, you know?

God I love it when I'm in the zone. I dont do anything sissy like sing or anything, but it seems as though I can see and feel the rock's (or ice, or mountain's) weakness and flow over it like a water.

 

Every sport, or athelete who loves their sport for this very reason. I golf with a few guys who are fanatical about the game and they site the same feelings.

perhaps you are referring to "w00ks". A good place to view trustafarian w00ks in their native habitat is at phish shows.

Granted. But most of the hippy wannabes around Seattle and in the climbing world are longhairs. I'm pretty cleancut.
