The fall send temps have been upon us now for a few weeks... Just wanted to resurrect this thread. I love hearing about peoples successes. So, let's hear it... What have you sent this fall that you're proud of?? No shame here.

Yeah, Denmark!! We're psyched for you... can't wait for you to make a full recovery. I'm ready to do some climbing with you...

What do you put "Standing Up In The Shower For The First Time In 4 Months" at?? It's an FA for you, right? What were you thinking?? 12d/13a?? Or did it turn out much easier or harder? Which crag is this at again??

Mega snaps to Dan Beck for replacing all the hardware (yes including bolts) on Flour Power and promptly sending it for his first 13b today! The cave is now 1/3 done, huge thanks to all the donors and Odub as well.

Thanks Dan Beck, and good work dispatching Flour Power for your 1st 13b!!! Sick!!

This is dedicated to dustonian: This past weekend I sent Tapeworm... I was psyched, mainly because it's a sweet route and I really enjoy climbing on it... this one's for you, Dustin!

Hi, my name is Chris [Hi, Chris].

I haven't climbed in two years...but I rode Cobhill on my bike!

[Stunned silence]

Lots of shame, man. Lots of shame.

All of my nylon has exceeded that 7 year shelf life and some of my cam slings are older than some of the climbers that post to this board. Oddly, only my quickdraws are not suspect. Maybe I'll be a sporto by default this fall. Can I spray about single digit grades here?

Psyched about your Cobhill bike ride, nice work!

Spray about single digit grades... spray about 4th class ascents, spray about whatever you'd like, man! Spray Away!!

Sent Random Precision. I had been sending a lot of my projects (this IS spray direct..) and I was stoked to climb hard, but then I sent that and it brought me and my ego back to the ground. My favorite .11 in the gorge. A masterpiece by Terry.
