Thanks, but I couldn't get anything to rhyme with "We drank eighty cans of beer in three days..."

Amen to that! BTW, that's a nice ass in that first photo :-)

Well, it's certainly not mine - mine's much cuter, due to the superior bum pucker factor...

X-link for posterity to a follow-up Capt-mulch song to accompany his earlier 'To be fun' poem.

Another cross-link. This time to a MrsM10 posted poem on Friday Funnies thread.

A bit of the old thread necromancy here (if you love the thread enough does it become thread necrophilia?).

Spent the last few days pottering around Buffalo (about the only climbing venue in the state that is not on fire, it would seem), getting a bit of climbing in between soaks in the lake. The climbing inspired a few limericks (some would say not inspired enough, but never mind)...

Regarding the joys of bashing through dense post-fire snowgum regrowth in search of obscure crags listed in the guidebook:

A Kevin Lindorff approach,
Is much more heinous than most.
While following his guide
We quite nearly died
emerging tired, lacerated and roast.

Celebrating M9's accent of the horrific looking Ethical Drum (M7):

A spry old gent named M9
Spied a likely looking aid line.
But when the seam became thin,
He hammered a pin
Proving his ethics no better than mine.

Necroepistolophilia (madeup).

Good grief no! Wouldn't catch me on that thing (at least not without a pile of bouldering matts), it looked heinous!

My ethical stance is that if I can't look at a climb without soiling myself then I clearly shouldn't sully it with my presence. ;-)

That's a lie too. I can think of least one recent example that disproves this statement. Want to guess what it is? It starts with 'S' . . . . . and ends with 'corpion'.

That's cause S... climb looks peachy till you get on it.

It doesn't sound like you would enjoy another (harder) line I have added to my 'to do' list, in that general area then...

The most interesting bit of S...(corpian) is the really great start to it in my opinion...

Well, I just lured myself onto that one by telling myself it was going to be a friendly hand-crack once the chimney section was done (talk about a self-sandbag!)

Hm - as we discussed at the aid weekend, I think we come at this aid business from different angles.

You enjoy the mental challenge of hard aid, whereas I largely treat aid as a sort of vertical multi-day hike, getting me to places I'm too weak to free climb to!

Still, I'm going to have to step up to the plate for some harder aid at some point, or I'll rapidly run out of North Wall options. Maybe an M7 close to the ground which will give me some practice and the body recovery folks a relatively easy job when things go South would be a good place to start.

Come to think of it I consused it with another climb... (retreats back to corner to mind own business)
