Used to love surfing on rainy days & climbing on sunny ones when I was living in NC. Moved to FoCo in 2012. No more surfing. Recent [estimated] downgrade to lead/follow grades b/c rusty & outta shape. Hopefully I'll get back in the swing of things soon.
"Okay, I've been thinking about it.
Old custom: wait for a quick summer shower to wash the n00bs off the rock like coal dust from a miner's ball sack, then race up the route gathering all bail gear in a frenzied gear grab.
New custom: n00bs get washed off the rock like aforementioned ball dust, go home, then post up which route and what market value of said gear was. This will save a lot of surveillance time for more experienced climbers, fully maximizing their booty banditry. Everybody wins!"
...is hilarious! I'm keeping this strategy for summer at Ship.

Sep 30 - Much like JD, there's nothing that makes this route special, but I can't help having fun on it :).

Sep 30 - The truly CLASSIC Stone Mtn water groove! This route is one of the reasons I love Stone so much!! Looking up it seemed scary the first time, but it's actually quite secure friction (and comfy stance). Good way to break into Stone 9's.

Sep 30 - Best of the best!! If you like slab, do NOT miss this route. It is one of the reasons I like Stone Mt so very much! Neat train track features, nice view, fun friction, and even a couple of cam placements—like a .4 or .5 and a .75-ish, if I remember corr
