I collected my new bargain internet ordered crash pad from UPS last night. I don’t have a photo of it, but here is a replica being tested by my flatmates back home.
The woody warming night kicked off with some climbing/bouldering DVD watching – the one with bouldering in Nova Scotia was good, but The Australia Project was fairly rubbish (well it was nice to see some of my home crags, but they hardly made the most of it). Then warming of woody, photos below. It needs more roof holds, and more extensions are in the planning.
Exhausted. Bouldering at Governor Stable was very much fun. Everyone bouldered like champions. A couple of photos… of the first bunch of climbers walking in. I love the look of a herd of walking bouldering mats.
And of still life with chalk bucket. Which I won… for coming second in the intermediate female division, woo. It came with the bear, as well as some chalk, and an M-16 bouldering brush. I was wondering why there was a package with a picture of a rifle on it. “Originally designed to clean the internals of an M-16 rifle, the M-16 Bouldering Brush is the perfect tool for rock climbers.” Excellent.
Apparently this is samosa. I’d always referred to them as the crunchy triangle things. That were frequently found in the company of spring rolls.
First time bouldering on Richmond Bridge today, until random hand pain intervened. There were going to be photos, but it started raining, and got all gloomy as the cold change swept over. So I guess today was the last of my sunny weather until it starts warming up in the US.
