I agree with you about being able to walk 10 slabs if I'm going to have a decent shot at cleaning Dorsal.
Hard to find slab friends, everyone seems (acts like?) to hate it. Going to the Swell this weekend as I have a friend that loves desert climbing and I've become quite fond of it myself too.
I have one partner to go with for slab and we just don't always work out time wise. I need more slab partners that want to do 10's and 11's. I mean, right now I may have to TR some of these, but still..
excuses, excuses, excuses..
How many of you climb slab regularly? As mentioned before I fell at the varnish section of Kermit and I had a hard time with Punany on TR, but if any of you would be up for climbing, I'd be more than happy. I'm not going to pretend I'm a rock God or never get scared or anything. I still haven't tried an .11 in LCC (was supposed to try equipment ovehang this weekend, but weather was supposed to be bad so we stayed in Ogden), but I did pretty well on Static Cling (11a on Wallstreet), not clean, but felt like it would go down... Got absolutely shut down on Scarlet Begonias (11a? in Zion). Actually haven't even tried the classic .10's in LCC because friends and I started visiting the desert on weekends or we end up taking out guys that just want to cruise on some easy stuff. So anyway, tired of talking about myself, starting to feel like a resume.
I get most Fridays off if you need a partner. I'll even be a belay bia on something if you have a hard project you want work, as long as I get to follow / TR. BCC, LCC, Provo 22 pitch sport climb, whatever.
Thanks again for all the beta, everyone is pretty damn helpful on here.
