HA ! A buddy of mine had a rope stolen from an overnight REBOLTING effort !!   A 2 pitch route, overhanging and such, pretty hard work.

Negro Lesbain too Funny Casey i forgot all about that name I really am a ass clown..

I need to get out climbing. The hoof is doing much much better, BG's on the FedEx truck in Westboro and heading my way as I type. I am good to go tomorrow if you are...

Forgot to mention if i do get out although my foot is feeling better i still am gonna have to take it easy. I got a nasty case of hemroids and i have a feeling i should not be pulling down too hard for a while!!

Al hopefully I was not misunderstood. I 100% feel that takeing the rope was bad karma. was just playing devils advocate. It is possible that Ed nailed it. the perp was either  completly clueless or had an agenda...

Sporty and I put up a two pitch direct finish to 'New Perversions' on Whitesides. What to name a finish to a route named New Perversions that has one bolt in 300': 'Dirty Dykes Done Dirt Cheap'. It still cracks me up. I had to yell at Yon though when the guide came out and some PC asshole changed 'Dykes' to 'Dikes'.

I can climb it, just need to work it a couple more times. I just need the time to finish cleaning and bolt it. Not sure it's 11d tho... :-/ maybe 10c.

New P is  right of Whipping Boy. Old Rotert route, in his underground guide it was the only route on the face he gave an 'R' rating to, which freaked everyone out for years (the first time I did it I left a red tri-cam at the crux, went back a year later and retrieved it, so lots of traffic. 15 years later I think that tri-cam is still on my rack, which might explain why no one ever wants to climb with my gear). W/ tri-cams and TCUs it's not that bad, assuming you don't mind major runouts on .7 and .8.
