If I were you father I would have kicked your ass instead - believe that.

Now I know it's you dad.  Gosh I've missed you.

Jim, who knew your daddy was such a violent hard a$$. Whatever happened to unconditional love and support?

On a somewhat different note, it was cool to see yesterday that folks are going after it in the Cave. I can't wait to hear of a second ascent!

Todays Cover shot looks a lot more like a winter mixed climb' when you see a shot like that  it is obviouse that it is cold, nasty and requires serious winter implements.  When you see  a shot like the  WOD shot it makes you wonder where the ice is.

I should have taken a shot of Work of the Devil yesterday. There is a 15 foot overhanging ice pillar off the ground, with ice blobs seeping out of many of the cracks. Plus, almost enough ice above the lip to push through the CD ice line. Oh yeah boys, there's ice... lots-o-fun mixed roof climbing!

Conditions yesterday on Pocket Full of Man WERE nasty. Supreme kudos to Doug and Bayard for putting that rig up!

I would love to see it climbed in those conditions. and see pictures. i just get weirded out when I see half naked guys climbing bare rock with tools ;) Full conditions and that is a totaly diferent story. even if the climb is easier with the ice on it. It just looks a lot cooler INMOP.

PS... RE: Pocket Full of Man, does it change your perception knowing that it was a pre-existing rock climb called Stars in My Pocket 5.11+ originally done by Handren (I think)? Just curious...

 It depends on how long and hard the ice was getting into it. You can't tell from the pictuer. It does look cold and nasty though. If The ice was only a few moves and  really easy then it may not be worth scratching up the corner? How often does the climb get done in the summer? My personal decisions would weigh those factors.

Mixed Climbing is Retarded. 

That is all there is to it.

Should a seldom climbed rock route be open for dry-tooling?  Great question!  I'm not sure were I stand on this one.  I would lean towards thinking if it made a better winter climb than a rock climb the answer could be yes.

I would totally say yes to that one Dave, not that I'm an authority or anything.  Mixed climbing is a very interesting experience, and one that I intend to keep working on in hopes of being able to go out and challenge myself further, hopefully without being called a retard.  I still have fun...and now I'm glad I suck at mixed climbing so I don't have to take the flack that these strong climbers are taking.  Keep innovating!

Blah Blah Blah,

A person did a route that is quite hard with minimal ice on it.  In good years there is ice everywhere.  Go there, try it, then have something meaningful to say.  So many opinions so little really said.  EasternBlowHard.....I look forward to meeting you in a bar someday......Your sarcasm and intelligence is refreshing.....LOL.
