How do you know I wasn't? Recycling makes sense Laugh Out Loud Crazy


Let's see, 2,000 years ago, initials J.C., and recycling does make sense. Could have been you....

Well if it was you figuring out what patterns of stars looked like, you've carried your skills into the present age to be applied to rocks.

 Mike asked if I would mind if he sent a guy named Andrew, who was visiting the gym yesterday, over to climb with us.I mentioned something about being social to Geoff. He responded "I'm the socialest there is".

 Andrew ended up climbing with others.

 Josh was dropped off the gym by his Mom and Martha. He was very excited about climbing being in the Olympics, and SNL's impersonation of Spicer. Martha had no idea that I was at the gym. It was a (Brad)business meeting, since we talked for a couple minutes about work and exchanged a check for me and pay for one of Geoff's sons.

 Who is going to be the Rock(Plastic) Climbing sports announcer at the Olympics? Geoff did an excellent play by play of Andrew climbing higher than we did on a well set route. Geoff was sure Andrew was going to fall off sooner than he did, pretty damn funny.

 Seabright Brewery is hard to beat, for extending the business meeting. This is how we fill in some of the days between Mud research outings.

I'm always good at extending business in this manner.

 The C's were top notch on Top Knot. Great lead KC.

 We shelled out some egg hunting in the Monsters lair .

 Nice to run into Gavin.

 JC rocked out 2 serious stance placements while uncorking the bottle. The arraignment of the the previous 2 days is that he does most of the work(7 bolts to 1) and while I expound on the possibility of his future employment opportunity as becoming a gargoyle model.  Smiley

 On the whole, gargoyles seem to have small foreheads bro. This statue has a larger one than most.

 Uncle Sam, Buddha, God, and Plato are more in the running. That Lawrence of McEnroe look you were sporting may be catchy.

 Cool

^^^

That is a very interesting photo and a cool formation. Looks like fun.

I have two groups of questions:

1. Is the LOLR up and right (below you), and then around to the summit? Is that how you climbed?

2. Am I seeing horizontal ropes across the gap between the summit and the rocks to the left? Did you guys set up a tyrollean traverse to get off??

And I'll take my answers offline if online would give away too many secrets for now  Grin  Wink

Nope.
It is like a smaller version of Bicuspid without the unprotected rotten start.
A small crumbly pillar (to my right in the pic) which can't be seen in this picture allows you to gain the main pinnacle.
I placed a bolt on that middle summit for a directional while you climb down to the slot and gain the smaller crumbly pillar.
Pretty cool climb - a mini mountaineering adventure.

 JC spotted a line that worked out on a pinnacle we have dubbed the monster, not that it resembles him sporting a goatee in any way.

 At one point JC was around a corner and as I continued to feed out rope I inquired "How are things going?". He yelled back "I'm committed" and probably should be for his mossy run-out to the top.

 The climb surprisingly went at 5.7ish 2bolts 75 ft corkscrew. Cool summit! Dude, that was a great day and climb.

That was an awesome day and I am going with Behemoth for a name.
I will include in the description for the upper slab - climb up to a perfect stance on a decent size lodestone and wonder why there is not a bolt. This one will be left for all the naysayers.  Laugh Out Loud Devil Eeeeek
