I am looking to do the top 25 Washington peaks in 2003. All weekend climbs. Looking now to put together a climbing calender. Anyone interested give a shout. Will need a couple good people for a rope team, and should be a blast. bigdrink.gif

next summer's plans are to:

 

1. work some new lines on a handful of 600 - 1200 ft granite slabs and domes around here (some of the slabs/domes may still be unclimbed)

 

2. get on some of the great existing crack lines here

 

3. have a lot of fun accomplishing this all

 

good luck to everyone.

fast path to b.c. skiing is to get a multiday pass at a resort, take a backpack and do laps until your thighs turn to jello. the pack makes you focus on unweighting skis on the turn, which I've found is the single biggest hurdle to skiing the crud, getting 'em out of the snow to make the turn. that said I still suck relatively.

Wallstein, Go on a backcountry ski trip with people who are already good skiiers and won't wait for you (or so it seems). You will very quickly learn b/c skiing, or at least survival skiing!

Ray, how many times have you thoroughly lost your shit when the Doctor cracks wise with a "fun comment" in one of your conversations? And how is pointing out that no one on this message board has any effect on your (in)ability to find a snow buddy "instigating shit"? Your hair-trigger impotent rage seems to have overcome your ability to reason.

 

Time to wake up and grow up, man. The whole angry jock kick-your-ass routine might have worked in highschool, but this ain't highschool, which makes your tantrums pretty pathetic. If you were a little more rational, people might respect you; trying to get people to fear you by playing the thug just makes them laugh at you.

 

Violence is not the answer, etc. ... end of PSA.
