Congrats on your ascent of Never Tell Me The Odds bigchris. I'm stoked for you.
It is also pleasant seeing people discussing climbing again on this site, instead of the usual distractions!
Heh, heh, heh.

Hmm.
I think there is a bunch of people in the Bluies waiting for ODH to come good on his promised ascent (involving bets on the side), of a controversial line there too...

Thanks! But it doesn't mean that I'm a good climber by any stretch of the imagination. I also need to speak to you about something FA related in Buffalo. Ive spoken to Mike Law about it and he advised me to speak with you because he feels that his information is correct but he also said that he might not be in the know.

I've written it up at 19, but I feel that the climb is closer to 17.

This one I think is 19 and Muki thinks that it is 20, but Steve is much smaller than both him and I so being an OW it is size dependant.
