More information:
"So where'd you get your information from, huh?!
You think that you can front when revelation comes?"
--Beastie Boys (clearly talking about some rad mountain route)

"I'm not from here
I just live here
grew up somewhere far away
come here thinking I'd never stay long
I'd be going back soon someday

I'm not from here
but people tell me
it's not like it used to be
they say I should have been here
back about ten years
before it got ruined by folks like me

We can't help it
we just keep moving
it's been that way since long ago
since the stone age, chasing the great herds
we mostly go where we have to go"
--James McMurtry

My climbing involves working with the fact that I have a genetic connective tissue disorder. This does affect my ability to do certain physical things. On the flip side, I am mentally strong and so trad and alpine climbing are natural disciplines for me.

It is possible that southeastern Idaho is boring almost everywhere but here!  The Devil's garden is so nice in July <br /> <br />  Interesting sunset geometry taken with my camera which died soon after this trip  Jason belays atop the thumb (lower left). Birds'-eye-view of the cirque proper from the last pitch of Center Thumb.  <br /> <br />(and, oh yeah, my rope is a little bit *&%$@^ here if I do say so myself!)   Jason coming up the crux of pitch 1 on a surprisingly cold morning <br /> <br />June 2014
