Yeah, I heard you and Eduardo were planning on heading out this weekend.

I might add to the bumbly count myself with some evening bouldering on a few of the easier problems.

Captn_Mulch, Carlos and IdratherbeclimbingM9 will be there.
Have received indications from some others to that effect who have not confirmed ...

Weather forecast is 4 to 16 each day with fresh at times SW winds. Some patchy rain developing late Monday.

Safe travelling everyone.

Wow, sounds like you were actually there n00bpwn3r. But, if you were there you would know the real story. And be quite embarrased by the inacuraccy of your post. You should keep your silly mouth shut. Before you start offending and upsetting people.


And on the subject of the instructors accreditiatiuon. Seems to be a qualified guide now though. I guess there's a difference when you get a competent assesor.

aahh sweet controversy

Regardless of whether you are "in" or "out", "accredited" or not you've got to admit it is bad form to
piss on the cliff during an accreditation. Despite the fact it gets rather smelly, what would the students
think?

Well the first day of the chockstone gathering is going very well, with objectives completed and only one
minor injury, I'll let WW&S tell you more about that himself, so many people at the piles today, very
typical of a long weekend, and only one ambulance! I hope whoever it was called for is OK!

It happened.

... What happened I hear the cybermasses saying?

100,000 (+) POSTS!



Congratulations Chockstone!

Crank ^, clip, hooray!
Crank ^, clip, hooray!

For they are jolly good Chockstoners, for they are jolly good Chockstoners ~> & so say all of us! etc!

Many happy climbing returns!

Big group hug, warm’n’fuzzy feelings all round!

:)

For the statistically minded I did a number crunch back in August, and reconfirmed my findings again in late September, that we would be hard pressed to achieve the 100,000 mark by end of this calendar year based on the average weekly post numbers at that time.
... However soon after (October onwards), the posting rate quadrupled(!) due to threads like ‘climbing = dating’, ‘N008ie mistakes???’, ‘Gilgamesh FFA’, ‘Climbing and Diet’, etc.

Last Friday we still had something like 400 to go to achieve the mark. Skip a couple of days and log in now to find we exceeded it by 90 (or so), and incidentally are up to 3245 members now...

~> so it seems like we came through the crux runout OK.
Heh, heh, heh.
