The “Underwear Bet” is on, and more people have joined in (everyone likes the challenge of avoiding public nudity). So we’ve set a new deadline: One month to send – April 15th to May 15th.
But I’m off to Smith Rock tomorrow to climb some trad and send a few hard boulder problems with my only-friend-in-the-entire-world-Jeff-Hess. And every trip needs a focus:
Sport climb 5.12d
Redpoint all the pitches on the Phoenix Buttress.
Don’t cry when scared.
Something to make a trip more than just a trip. So here’s my rule:
This three-day weekend, I will not top-rope. I can lead, or second and clean on a multi-pitch, but I can’t chill with the rope hung safely through the chains above. No smoking cigarettes while comfortably on TR. Not one single pitch.
