Dru Posted April 17, 2005 Share Posted April 17, 2005 Went bouldering in Hope for the first time this year. 'Twas dry, sunny and warm at first, and I managed to climb 5 or 6 problems, including one that I had cleaned but failed to climb last year. Then I started doing some scrubbing. Alas, the moss was still wet and after removing some living carpets, all I could do was smear the mud underneath around rather than actually clean holds As I was sitting around thinking about trying a scary highball that I have fallen off before, I was saved by the arrival of a thunderstorm. I wondered about the potential for lightning bolts to seek out my 4 foot bubba brush, but decided I was safe since the shaft is made of wood... everything got wet rather quickly, time to quit climbing for the day and go for coffee. I did christen my new freestanding "chalk purse". Works much better than a normal chalk bag for bouldering, especially with 3 blocks of chalk inside and the pipe stuck in the bottom pocket as a counterweight . It has not one, but two, count em, TWO, toothbrush holders.... I am already anticipating the day when I can go leashless and attack a mossy problem with a toothbrush in each hand Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
