Climbers UNITE.......
    #4437043 - 07/22/05 07:16 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

so, a few different threads have got climbing on my mind again....

i've climbed all through Tn,and west Virgina...

my basement is made to be finished,so it has all the 2x4/6 framing stubs....

i have random holds from a previous "real" cave that i built with some friends....

it's a weird feeling to say the least(climbing your basement,literally).....



so uh,any-who,all you climbers out there ,lets here it....


cap'n...



( and anyone who remembers/can descibe, the "tights" wars,i might just send them a hold,or something)

I don't have a basement, but I'm building a campus board. Actually I've already built it, but my girlfriend won't let me install it (we don't have much space).

It's been raining for 3 days and I'm going nuts.

Haven't been able to try it much because of the rain. I can balance myself on the line for a while if I make it bounce up and down. I still haven't tried the pole, but I will as soon as it gets dry outside.

I'm weak in both :lol:, hopefully the board will change that.

One thing I miss about living in Colorado... the rock climing. There isn't much to climb around here... at least unless you want to start the belay out of a dingy in the ocean...

5.12 trad is pretty hard. If the route is not long I think I'd rather deep water solo it.

The best climbing place in finland rises from a lake too. Called Olhava, it's only 60 m tall but 500 m wide, and the highest wall we have here (I live in a flat country).

Ha! I just finished a phonecall with a landowner I've been trying to reach -got permissions to make routes on a crag I found last year.
It's on an island, 60 km from where I live. I'm putting my thesis aside for a while and leaving immediately!

*starts packing*

See you in a couple of days (unless I crater)!

Trad. It's mostly cracks. The local club has a very strict code of etchics. Routes that can be protected with trad equipment are never bolted, and only crags that have several potentially good sport routes are bolted.

Looks like I'm stuck here until tomorrow morning, my partner (who has a car, I don't) can't leave before that.

I climb. Not an expert or anything.. and I've only climbed with gear once. I don't know all the terms or the steepness grades and all that stuff. But I love me some rock climbing. Just me and my hands and feet and some rocks.

Not sure if you've ever been to Great Falls, VA.. but that's where I've done a lot of it. It's no expert climbing but damn its fun.

I climb too. Haven't done much outdoor climbing with gear either. I was going to an awesome gym regularly before I moved, but now I need to find another way to get my workout. I'm hoping to meet someone witha bunch of gear in seach of a climbing buddy.

Those are some nice pics. I'd love to play around on those rocks for a day.
