We have to get you out of those aiders. Your on a hand crack for christ sakes.

Thank you for saying it first Ian. Now that I think about it, I don't think Brad knows how to hand jam. When he follows hand crack pitches he does it with two gold camalots.

While I won't deny that I've gotten to the top of MANY a climb by yarding my ass off, I would like to point out that it's not exactly a perfect hand crack that I’m aiding...

It's more of a righteous finger crack!

And another thing… I’ll wager a lunch here in Durango that neither of you two free climbing studs can manage to drag yourselves to the anchor on this pitch without a rest.

That’s right... I’m calling you out...

PS. Admit it, you think that big cam in the triangular placement that I’m standing on is cool.

Sounds like we need to make a trip to Sping Canyon Ian! It can't be that hard of a free climb Brad was able to aid it.
