slow monday at work, so...

Whose got the high score for accumulated ticks you picked off yourself this weekend? I had 2 from ccc; surely someone else was less fortunate and had more.

The title of this thread is misleading: seems more like it's going to be about how many routes were ticked (who climbed the most routes). Not how many ticks were picked. I'm not disappointed though.

Tick pick pics please.

Jon, thanks for the feedback. I don't want to mislead anyone. I've changed the title of the thread to prevent any further confusion.

haha thanks. One more request; there oughta be two awards: one for quantity and one for quality (like the size of tick).

I have never had a single Tick get on me that I know of. For that matter, I just saw my first one last week (on my partners camera bag). Other than that one, I've only seen them in photo's.

Locker you're lucky.

Didn't have any from climbing past weekend, but had one from trail running on Thursday.

Earlier this year at T-Wall I sat in a nest of them, though. Probably knocked 5 or 6 off before they bit. Didn't have any after that.

Looking at a 5.7 crack with Nick
I had 14 at Devil's Lake Sunday, if that counts for anything.

Man you should come climb in CT! Enough ticks to make you vomit and they're all Lyme carriers. . . Last year after a 15 min hike and short bushwack I picked 15+ off me!!! So gross...

We've been climbing in BoCan the past couple weeks and spotted them crawling on us. Unfortunately I had to pull one off that was attached to my daughter's head last week. Not a fun experience.

Pick one of these up, and you'll never risk leaving a tick head embedded. And no, I don't have an interest in the company.

does anyone regularly apply deet and/or permethrin and notice a difference?

DEET doesn't do anything for ticks, in my experience. Permetherin WORKS. I've never had a tick on me (or my partners, for that matter) when I've worn clothes sprayed with Permetherin---even in areas heavily known for ticks.

Now the stuff is pretty intense, so wear gloves when applying it to your clothes, spray them outside and let them dry overnight (outside.) It lasts for at least 6 weeks, which by then the 'tick season' is usually dying out anyways.
