Underwhelming Video

Sorry for the lack of media lately. This deficiency is mostly due to the fact that I've been climbing at night and usually alone, thus the boom and stadium lights have been left at home. I did, however, send one of the problems coming out of the Le Conte roof on Sunday. For the uninitiated, "Goldmund" and "Narcissus" share the same crux opening sequence but then diverge after leaving the roof. "Goldmund" finishes up "Prowess," while Narcissus goes up "Rabbit Habit." I went back to the roof last night and came agonizingly close to sending, falling two holds from the top of Narcissus. 

I don't have any sending footage, nor do I have any footage of the near send. Instead, I have footage of Peter and I flailing on our two very different projects. Enjoy.




I may go back to the roof tomorrow night, but the rest of the weekend will be spent doing mostly non-climbing related things. What a novel idea.

Also, congratulations are in order for Peter, the new father. May Guss grow up to have bigger balls than you. Cheers!

non-climbing related like hanging out with john and shannon in tuolumne?

were you doing those roof problems by yourself? nobody was spotting you on those topouts??

thanks Shannon; I thought it was only moms who thought that climbing alone especially at night was dangerous - not to mention, dare I say - not very smart????
Be careful, my Justin.

ok so I should have watched this a long time ago. Despite all the pissing and moaning about the video, I was in stitches watching it!
