So, imagine one of those gorgeous fall days where LCC is just asking for it... You've seen the video posted above and you now have beta for most of your super projects... Which one do you head to first?

Obviously, the very very tall one.

He wants to go back though.

Went back and watched the video again, looks like I'm fucking up the beta in the middle (shockingly). Sucker is hard and scary... I'm going to go get on shivers today to practice death mantles.

Looks like the lower sucker crimp out right on blue steel got you too. Don't be fooled, no one can move off of that thing.

I beg to differ. I made good progress hitting it and moving down from it. The lieback isn't all that inspiring considering the complete lack of feet...

Definitely got me. Several times too - that thing is the flat out worst kind of slimper. I tried the, go straight up the arete beta, and that seemed hard. Consensus.... thing is fucking hard.

Tried shivers in the rain, also not confidence inspiring. Maybe it's time to go back to cruising V0's in the middle of nowhere.

P.s. die noob.

Boissal, that second shot of Blue Steel is money, nice perspective!

As a non-skiier, I am fed up with snow and dreaming of climbing. Thus, more photos:

Cool bloc I stumbled across in Joe's that I have been calling the Well Hung Over Overhang. It's a mere 43.2 mile hike through deep ravines, with snakes and bear traps, and scorpions and all sorts of dangerous miserable things. Needless to say I don't think I will ever go there again, but if someone is uber motivated and wants a neat new sector in Joe's with good rock, I would be happy to provide info. (Unless someone else has found said super obscure area and does not want info released, but I doubt it cuz I don't think any boulderist in their right mind would want to venture this far)

And here is a silly little video I did of the climb IsRail in Moe's Valley. This was a test of some animation techniques I have been working on, nothing fancy:

I am interested! Nice work, strong crushing.

UC.com is surviving on 3 threads and while the mp.com moment of tard provides endless entertainment I have to say the bouldering and trad (stick-clipping sport route) photo thread still deliver the most. At times. Infrequently

Guess you kept some of your wits, do you think it was a fair price for having turned into a fat fisherman who sprays about his catches on FB?

You should change your title to mullet baitfish.

I almost changed it to "More pets than sense" but thought that would be too insensitive towards your pets. Mullet baitfish - brilliant!

Edit: Nice video too

Red Letter Day looks sick. That left hand pulling through to mantle is kinda crazy.
