Just got back from Hex's place, we've been brainstorming new and alternatively cool ways to keep Chockstone fun and interesting for all. Sit tight!

Thai Government plans to cash in with a Universal Studios style Tsunami Theme Park

http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2005/03/07/1110160726628.html

This was inevitable. The 'tsunami' T-shirts have apparently already hit the streets. It seems to be in poor taste but you can't really deny them the opportunity to rebuild their country, of which tourism contributes a far bit to national revenue.

El Bourgeo, signing out for another day

Sheesh, it's category 5 (Cyclone 'Tracy' was category 4) but hopefuly it will not hit built up areas.

Here is the warning for coastal communities in the affected areas

In news from climbing dot com, the absolute legend/climbing/god of the 30's and 40's, who led the first ascent of the Eiger with absolutely sh#@house gear, showed enormous balls, and even dabbled in a Hollywood career. A moment of silence for the passing of a true legend and remembrance of our brothers who did it much tougher than we do now

Eiger Pioneer Heckmair Dies
By Dougald MacDonald

Anderl Heckmair, who led the first ascent of the great North Face of the Eiger in Switzerland, died last week at age 98. Eight men already had been killed on the 6,000-foot face before Heckmair and Wiggerl Vörg started climbing in July 1938. Partway up, they joined forces with Heinrich Harrer and Fritz Kasparek, but it was Heckmair who led the most difficult pitches, climbing with then-novel front-point crampons. He fell several times, once puncturing Vörg’s hand with his crampons, but the German-Austrian team still managed to reach the top after three and a half days of climbing.

Nazi leaders touted the Eiger ascent as proof of German superiority, but Heckmair never joined the Nazi party. He fought on the Eastern Front in World War II (where Vörg was killed on his first day of fighting in Russia). After the war Heckmair worked as a mountain guide and ran a hostel; he founded Germany’s guiding association in the late 1960s.

Holy sh##! Hollywood Hans has still got it, after all these years. No sign of Hume, Sharma, Caldwell - they were last spotted heading off with Klem Loskot to Todd Skinner's rancho de power somewhere near Hueco with a weeks supply of twinkies, beer, protein powder, a guitar and a copy Fred Nicole's autobiography "How da got strong"


U.S. Climbing Team Chosen (from climbing dot com)
By Dougald MacDonald


The 2005 U.S. Climbing Team for difficulty (roped) and speed climbing was selected March 5-6 at the USA Climbing Nationals, presented by Sterling Rope and Stone Age Climbing. Canadian Sean McColl won the men's difficulty comp at the Mission Cliffs gym in San Francisco, but Californian Ethan Pringle was the top American and will head the men's team, while Boulder-based Emily Harrington leads the women's team. Veteran speed champ Hans Florine showed he still has it, edging Patrick Cassiday by less than half a second in the speed finals. Mykael-Ann McGinley easily won the women's speed finals.

Breaking news from:
http://www.theonion.com/news/index.php?issue=4110

WASHINGTON, DC—Almost a year after the cessation of major combat and a month after the nation's first free democratic elections, President Bush unveiled the coalition forces' strategy for exiting Iraq.

"I'm pleased to announce that the Department of Defense and I have formulated a plan for a speedy withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq," Bush announced Monday morning. "We'll just go through Iran."

Bush said the U.S. Army, which deposed Iran's longtime enemy Saddam Hussein, should be welcomed with open arms by the Islamic-fundamentalist state.

"And Iran's so nearby," Bush said. "It's only a hop, skip, and a jump to the east."

According to White House officials, coalition air units will leave forward air bases in Iraq and transport munitions to undisclosed locations in Iran (see above). After 72 to 96 hours of aerial-bomb retreats, armored-cavalry units will retreat across the Zagros mountains in tanks, armored personnel carriers, and strike helicopters. The balance of the 120,000 troops will exit into the oil-rich borderlands around the Shatt-al-Arab region within 30 days.

It's obviously a fake story. If Dubya was making that statement he would have said something like "I'm please to announce that the Department of Defence and I have formulatoried a plan for a hastified withdrawal of U.S. troops from Eye-raq."
