American climbers eat rock. by Stevie Hungry Haston
Enormous hunger, gigantic thirst for life, fun, and rock. Yep, a lot of my friends seem to be hungry, and greedy for enjoying life's finer things. Two mates came over from the States to climb, and so far they seem to enjoy the rock, Fran and Crusher have been my mates for a really, really long time.
And we have climbed together, and discussed stuff for a really, really long time. Last night, we were talking about the 'Endless War' that's ravaging the Middle East.
There's a point when discussion, however heated, can stay a discussion, or rage into argument. I hope I always stay under that point, on the right side of that point. And that's the point!
This is a photo of me finally doing the crux of Hore Hound, a nasty tweaky 8a. The fact that I can now do it fairly well, suggests to me that it's not 8a. So it might go down in the next guide to 7a, or 6c +. That's my little joke for today. You have to laugh, don't ya, cos politics makes me want to scream, and stamp my feet. Better to go climbing with friends, and have a laugh at the idiot who wrote the guide book!
