Quotations from a Japanese TV show called "MXC: Most Extreme Elimination Challenge" where young contestants do obstacle courses. The two commentator's voices are dubbed into English and the dubbing is always hilarious (sexual innuendo mostly). The commentators are Kenny Blankenship and Vic Romano.

Very Nice, but please remove the topo coordinates, they are way way off, and deflect from an excellent page.

The coordinates are actually in the area around

lat = 47.6

lon = -120.7



NOT 52 North, 67 West! That is way up in Canada somewhere.

Click on your topozone map and see what I mean.

The ones I gave are just general. I mean, they are not the correct coordinates, but at least in the general area.

Finally!

Excellent page. That's quite a resume you got from L-worth.

What exactly is a double gaston technique and would it work for us on that Hesitation Blues at Smith :) ?

Thanks man.



A gaston is where you sidepull outwards. Your elbow is out and your hand is near your chest. A double gaston is doing the same thing with both hands. It works great on flaring cracks that you can't jamb or lieback.



Did you try Hesitation Blues again? Do tell!!! I don't remember any sections that the above technique would be effective on.



I will be continually improving the page as I go. I didn't have many good climbing shots from the 2 routes I submitted. I'm hoping you can add some pics to them. I believe you said you climbed both.



Looking forward to the Zebra Zion beta...

Hey Martin

Ahhh - good to know. Thanks!



Did you try Hesitation Blues again?

No. Got some other ideas I think before we try to hit that again (maybe next time you come to Smith we can work on it ).



I'm hoping you can add some pics to them. I believe you said you climbed both.

I'll go thru. our photos and submit some stuff tomorrow (after you've had the chance to submit your shots) - whatever doesn't overlap too much with yours. Nice page & I'm gonna check out the photos now.



take care!



ps Still impressed by that free solo you pulled. Ain't for me ;)

Great overview page, Martin. Sure looks interesting. And I'm glad that I'm not the only one having trouble with Mr. Klenke's lingo :-)
