Yeah, the Left Flank approach is EPIC. Right up there with Lone Peak Cirque, Lotus Flower Tower, and the Incredible Hulk.

In reference to Dustin's comment regarding Pure Imagination. We saw a fairly novice climber tie in and start climbing PI stating, "hey, there are draws, why wouldn't I just try it?" Just as he left the ground, he proclaimed to the watching crowd, in a completely serious tone, "even though I have never sent a 5.11 wouldn't it be crazy if I just did this route right now!?"





...he sent.
Chuffer juice!

Routine Climbing Partner
by crhart2 » Fri Apr 19, 2013 5:02 pm
Hi guys,

I recently moved back to Lexington, KY and am looking for a routine climbing partner. I'm leading 5.10's and looking to move into 5.11's this season. I've been belay certified by the Hoosier Heights climbing gym. I'm available to climb on weekends.

Send me a message if you're interested! I'm ready to kick some ass this season!

So, I walked into the gym the other day and this climber said "hey man, I'm moving to the red for the rest of the year". Weak right!

At the base of my project...nervously rehearsing the crux moves before I start to climb.....A guy peers over the cliff at the top of the route and calls down, "Hey! Do y'all have to climb RIGHT THERE? 'Cause we were fixin' to rappel off these shuts." :roll:

Watching some boy scouts climbing...the troop leader yells out to a struggling climber "Trust your hands!"
