glad to know that you guys aren't trying to force a gender on the individual anymore! :D

man! you two are lucky. not only do you have a gym in your backyard. but some mysterious ghost keeps giving you holds! maybe you should try some 3-grade sluthing to lift finger prints with scotch tape and run it through some computer database. :o

You should see what the guys from SoIll Holds do. They fill a space way smaller than your barn with tons of people every year. Everybody stays off to the side why one guy and one girl climb a problem.

That sure was nice of the anonymous people. I was floored when I came home and there was a box full of Voodoo holds on the porch. Unbelievable. The holds are amazing. Thanks so much anonymous!

Dear Anonymous Anomolies,

Finding your holds this morning, dangling from the tree in front of our house, I couldn't help but feel like a child on X-mas morning under the X-mas tree. Their shapes and texture have me feeling giddy inside and make me just want to run away from my job and play on them all day.

Thank you for such a fine gift! These new gems will be happily fondled in on a regular basis.

Thank you Anomolies! From a distance they looked like the first set (the Italian brand). Those are some of the best holds I've used.

speaking of climbing walls, getting fit and all, has anyone read the article in the recent Climbing by Pat Ament? To sumerize, it is a reflective peice by Ament on how bouldering was in the late 60's when he and Gill were at the height of their powers.
What floored me was his description of his workouts. Jesus! he was clearly coming at the sport from a gymnastic background, but still... That sounds like a sick workout. And the how he described basically everyone ding one arm pull ups and one and two finger pull ups. Those guys were strong.

and then gill blew his bicep straight off the bone and proclaimed, "i think i pulled something." a testament to the dangerous nature of being too strong..

i still really like gill's thought on sending a problem. he said that, for him, a problem wasn't really done unless it was done smoothly.. and it wasn't a problem unless it was dynamic.

Any idea what the Italian holds are? I love Voodoo, and if the Italians are better, then I'm very, very interested!

(Also, speaking of unexpected generosity, the Chancelor brothers threw in a bunch of cool, useful bonus 'seconds' in my order - great holds, great guys!)

P.S How high is the highest part of your wall?

Sandy - Stoneage Holds. Good bang for the buck.

Tom - The tallest point of our scissor vaulted ceiling is 14.5 ft. We only built to 13ft or so, though, and that feels plenty high enough even with 14" of padding to land on.

No idea on the holds. They're super sweet, though. Definitely a mystery to us...and a fun one too. :) Voodoo holds are sweet as hell! We're putting in an order for some of those next week too. Ahhh...Buddha Belly....
