Ghostride da whip!
I think it's time to fire up the TNO Machine again!

How about next Tuesday afternoon/evening?

Shall we ease into the season with something like Huston Crack or cut to the chase with something a little more rowdy?

I've done most of that list (30+) and FA'd 5 of them.

I thought of at least one you missed though:
Far Out

Cunning Stunt (on the Maiden) might also get a mention if you were listing them. Not everyone has 5" fists...

Tony - I pulled many of those routes from your posts the last few times this thread has been around...so thanks for your contributions both as an FA and a curator.

Cunning Stunt is a good one. Had almost forgot!

He should add Super Squeeze- for me it;s a squeeze chimney, as I can just barely get my butt pulled through it if I let my legs dnagle and then wobble up. For larger people... well, good luck. Tony B

Added both of those suggestions to the list along with Athlete's Feat, which made honorable mention since the wide sections are more about liebacks and knee bars.

Has anyone ever gone around the outside on Super Squeeze?

Huston Crack at Cob Rock will be the venue tomorrow (4/20/2010).

I'll be getting there around 5:00, but folks are welcome to show up earlier or later. See you there!

We had a mellow night at Huston. Chris and Aaron made it up from Westminster and both cranked on Huston crack. Nice job, guys!
