I hear Blake and Tania were pretty bad.
Can't we all just get along?

Forget the weekend ... I went to Left Flank on Wed and it was crazy then.

set myself up for fun times by going to Bruise..i know. but, we had a lovely time watching a large group of overweight boy scouts spend an hour burning themselves on a whisperlite cooking mac and cheese, and spreading out a whole buffet of sandwiches and costco snacks. like being at summer camp again.

Rather say "how good was it" ... this is fund raising for your crags in the PMRP. May be a bit inconvenient but it's only one weekend a year. Would have given anything to be there "inconveniencing" you but I had other obligations ... wish you could be here.

Bob is correct.....and as the primary sustainer of life in the PMRP for many years, it is to him we tip our hat. thanks for the reminder, although I should be old enough to know better....

The clinic I volunteered for was at Global Village- we were a group of 15, and there were 3 other groups of 10+ people there. Not exactly the best way to teach trad especially when one guy got on Father and Son while we were still teaching ground school (at the bottom of it) and then politely told us that he had 8 more people to send up, but we could get on it after they were done.

I heard there were only 28 people in the climbing comp. To me, it seems that it is perhaps unreasonable to close down Sore Heel for that small of a group increasing the resulting crowding at many other crags.

Awesome weekend!! Huge thanks to all the ass-bustin' coalition folks, to Bob for the hospitality and good times at Torrent, and to the Webers for bearing the brunt of the tourist influx. Rocktoberfest was a blast and pleasantly free of Timmy O'Douche. I was at the Surf Friday, Bob Marley Sat, and Crossroads/Dark Side yesterday... all 4 crags were virtually empty or with very light use.... perhaps I just had good luck this weekend, but it was phenomenal all around!

If you want to donate a cool $1000+ (estimated earnings from competitors' entry fees to RF + comp, plus sponsor donations), perhaps you could have it all to yourself for a day big guy. And it wasn't shut down, they just asked that you park elsewhere for one day.

Just doesn't seem right, to invite the world to your yard for a party, but then charge for admission and expect your neighbors to deal with the rest that don't want to cough up the money.

They didn't want people climbing there, and discouraged it.
