T-bones tonight 5.12-

I did not try this one, but my friends made it look really easy. 100 feet, 4 stars in the guide book!
Thin hands in a left facing corner and a big hands roof.

Excellent

Wonderful, it's always nice to have friends that make it look easy. I really like the way the climber seems so relaxed.

Re: Excellent

Thank you. The climber is a professional, and actually the way how he puts his knee makes it very secure.

Re: Excellent

Most of my friends could NEVER bend their
knees like that. If they did, they'd have
to consult a surgeon to have them replaced.

Re: Excellent

Larry, you underestimate yourself and your friends. Imagine after accomplishing something like that to eat some nice big steak!

Looks tough

The ending looks a bit difficult, only one person I know could climb that.

Re: Looks tough

Josh, I was there with a group of something like 10 climbers, and I was the only one who could not do it. My new nickname = crack looser :)

Re: Looks tough

Liba, you're falling into the trap of peer
pressure and social engineering.

I LET people call me WHATEVER they choose.

Except for, "Late for Dinner." :- ))

Re: Looks tough

Larry, I could not perform well on a carnivorous wall... They did not call me that way, I just felt like that. Thank you.

Re: Looks tough

Reminds me of when I was climbing in Leavenworth. I had to back down in front of my friend's friend. As for your case, it is 5.12 after all. ;-)

Re: Looks tough ..

I feel a debate coming on how high a
person should set their own personal standards, and achieve their BEST.

If you take a good look at people who find
success and happiness in what they're trying
to achieve, those people typically FROWN on
any kind of social behavior.

They don't care if people like them or not.

Just some food for thought, in the cafeteria
of Life. : )

And, sometimes we get STUCK with tough meat!

You'd be surprised

You should have tried it,.... maybe it would have gone, maybe you'd have gotten shut down, but until you try, you never know.....

Re: You'd be surprised

Maybe you are right... small crack would be easier for me... perhaps next time? :)
