Moving Dirt....

Since the comp I've been nursing a tweak in my right arm. I think it was a combo of playing basketball everyday for 2.5 weeks and then while I was warming up at the comp it tweaked out. The result was nothing serious (I think) but my right triceps have been numb for a couple of weeks. It's getting better every day and now since I've been landscaping it seams to be improving rapidly. I can't wait for the numbness to go away so I can get back on the court! Basketball has become my first choice for non-climbing activities.

Landscaping has been really nice to me, I've been working out by shoving dirt and at the same time sunbathing, actually more like sun cooking. I really enjoy working out side and the hard labor is whipping me into shape.

Other than doing work I've been glued to the TV watching the NBA Eastern and Western conference finals. I'd like to talk more about my team(s) but since this is a bipartisan blog I'll leave my comments to myself (don't want to loose any readers, hahaha.)

On an another note I'm expecting my friends from Dungeon Training to arrive here in Boulder any day now. Last time they were so happy to see me,

that I know this time is going to be off the charts...

Nice to see you in Rock and Ice and bringing people to the "cornwall boulder". Sucks you let Aron Back name problems that have been done before. Have some integrity and clear the air with Rock and Ice, give Jay Secco his credit for setting all the hard problems on the Norfolk Boulder. I guess it was a shame Joe showed you that boulder.

Thanks, Phil...

Joe has never shown me any boulders.

I've never shown Aron any boulders.

It was not my article (I did not write it).

But thanks for your concern...

Since when did Phil Schaal "let" anyone name problems on the Norfolk Boulder.
Thats pretty funny! I know Schaal is a good climber but I wasn't aware that he was to be held accountable for other people renaming boulder problems.

Sounds like you are putting the blame on someone who had nothing to do with what it is that you are upset about.

Hats off to Jay Secco for adding to the many great problems in "Cornwall" , pretty awesome.

Unfortunately, I do not think anyone really cares much about that boulder as there are far higher quality blocs in the region.

One other thing, Joe never showed us this boulder. As a matter of fact some folks form Great Barrington did almost 12 years ago. And it is these people that were climbing in this region long before any of us were even in the picture.
