getting down ...

... is sometimes the sketchiest part.

June 10, 2007: Me contemplating the descent off of a new boulder problem Matty and I dubbed Sticks and Stones, Eldorado Mountain, CO. If I don't look happy up there, I'm not.

i propose the name AND PHRASE be changed to: "misty pads", as in: misty pads may break my bones but names will never hurt me.

no offense jj, but a lot of factors led to your ankle breaking, only one of which was the quality of the foam in that particular misty pad, including:

1) you fell
2) awkwardly
3) onto one pad
4) and tried to "stick" the landing instead of collapsing on the pads
5) and no weight was taken by spotters right ... (?)
6) AND you have gotten accustomed to landing on organic foam

Wait a second...let's get back to the incriminating evidence this picture represents. Why does it look like you are "having you're way" with that boulder? Chip, is there something we should know about your "love" for bouldering?

chuffer said...

that boulder "took it" and liked it.

Then the name of this post would have been more appropriately titled "getting off..." rather than "getting down..."

chuffer said...

true.

GETTING DOWN ON IT is not just a dance move, foolish sneel!

title was very appropriate, though paradoxically, so too would be "ALL UP IN IT"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111112222223333333
