Hey-yo. R. Kelly Liggin, always looking for new, low-attitude, high-altitude, big-smiling partners.

Been at this game forra while, now. Probably best call me a cragman. Love trad/sport/ice/mixed all equally well. Low altitude, weekend warrior stuff as well as sending in the attic when summer temps come on. Tried aid--think it's too much ugh. Tried mountaineering, think it's a slog. Tried bouldering--probably outta do more, but there you go, the ropes call. And yes, I have "climbed" in a gym. But both times left me realizing that plastic is a thing you put water into. Have gotten into travel climbing, lately. Kalymnos, Ton Sai, Arapiles and beyond. A million other places now on my list...

And? And there was a time when I gave something of a damn about career and importance and status and what. I dunno. Something happened, and I realize that none of that really matters to me much at all anymore. Now all I really want to do is send. Anybody down for getting up?

Late. ~RKL

A much better beta shot. Note the twin crack start...one (thin) making the left corner and the fat hand crack along the right wall. Also see the obvious micro ledge, right crack, 20 feet off the deck. THIS is the Bloom un-named 5.10+ around the corner from "Where's Carruthers?."  Syncronized limbs! Cory gettin' hory on random (but beautiful) 5.10+. (Note, this is NOT "Desert Sunset." But this IS(?) "Your Moma," a duplicate listed climb, at least as described here on MP. Even though no one seems to know where that name came from...)   Where was that climb, again?  Originally, Ciao was lavished with a "6c+ (11c/d)" grade.  <br /> <br />Uh-uh. Not even close. Knock that puppy down some. Call it a gateway 11 at best.  <br />  Ciao, Sean, ciao!
