Guess we all have things that inspire us and things that don't speak to us at all. Just like some of us are motivated by grades, others by FAs, or others by just spending good time with good friends. Whatever the interest or motivation though, I'm glad there are people out there sharing it, especially as a reminder that their own viewpoint is just one of many. As a fellow East Coast climber, I can also appreciate the joy of walking through the woods to play on our little bits of rock, even knowing I could pick up at any time and move to a place where endless sunny slabs waited for me at the end of the day.

Bowshaaa, I've never checked out the bouldering up your way, but every video you put out makes me want to change that even more. Let me know if you're ever in Maryland and we'll be happy to show you our own little pebbles.

If anyone was interested in the training that I perform, I have included the link to the training forum where I posted the topic "Campus Board Training":

I'm not sure who is the biggest douchebag here...

Is it SDenny with his oh-so-mp.com dislike of bouldering for no other reason than getting 30' off the deck with 12 pieces of gear and 3 rests is clearly a superior pursuit?

Or would it be the 2 bouldering bros who still can't process the fact that one isn't required to boulder V12 (clad in nothing but a pure-wool beanie) in order to hold an opinion.

Personally I'd be more inspired seeing your morbidly obese moms getting up a 5.7 rather than some manorexic hippies sending V10. Do I need to post a ticklist to validate this statement?

edit: OP, NICE SPRAY.
