America, Fuck Yeah!
[30 Jun 2008 | 3 Comments | 0 views]

In celebration of our nation’s independence this week we at P&C are throwing our weight behind one presidential candidate who we feel is best suited to lead the world and convert as many foreigners to the ways of America as possible. Basically, our endorsement considerations boil down to an extended game of “Who would win in a fight”. This is how it turned out…

1. Old Man v. Black Man = Black Man
2. Hawaiian Born v. Panamanian Born = Panamanian Born, Panamanians…

Training with Limit #2
[27 Jun 2008 | 3 Comments | 0 views]

Abs. Everybody wants a ripped six pack, but most of us are working with a singularly bulging keg above our belt. For most of the population defined abs are just another vain ploy to try and get laid. And it’s actually a scientifically proven fact that good abs make you more attractive to the opposite sex. But for us climbers, good abs are essential for tickling the harder grades. In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last…

Meet the (Climbing) Press
[25 Jun 2008 | 2 Comments | 13 views]

I’ve been thinking, which is a rarity so I’m acting on my impulses here. I figure not too many of you really know the people that run the mags, write the articles, or shoot the photos for all this climbing media. They seem so inaccessible, but really they’re nice people, and not, for the most part, people to be hatin’ on. So I’m starting this new section Meet the (Climbing) Press, so everyone will finally know the people behind the…

Crag Exposure, Featured »

[24 Jun 2008 | 4 Comments | 17 views]

Today’s crag exposure comes from P&C’s friend Andrew Bisharat. Rifle needed to be covered, and Andrew is the only person I could think of that would do it better than me, so naturally, I convinced him it was a good idea. Enjoy. -Wig


When people think of Rifle, they think of what could only be called “A Scene”: shirtless posers, loser spraylords, dumb beta scammers, belay gumbies, non-pimps, overly self-conscious females who annoyingly whisper to each other while sitting on rope…

Mt. Evans, Colorado—Solstice
[24 Jun 2008 | One Comment | 1 views]



I headed up to Mt. Evans this Saturday with Jason Kehl and Abbey Smith to try my project—Bierstadt (V10), Abbey’s project—Silverback (V11), and Jason’s project—City Walls of Dying Dreams sit down start (V11-first ascent Adam Osterhoff). It was a great day even though no one sent…We got an early start (9:30 am)—which I only agreed to after a considerable bribe of coffee, pastries and smokes from Abbey. I used to ONLY be a post-noon climber, psyched to head to Chaos when…

Holy Flash Tent!!!
[23 Jun 2008 | No Comment | 1 views]

Lazy Outdoor Enthusiasts Unite! Your portable shelter of preference has arrived. Be introduced to Eldorado Outdoor Products commencement into the world of camping.

I have always dreaded assembling a tent, probably because I’m lazy and I typically arrive at campsites sometime in the wee hours of the morning after driving most the night after a work week. Not only did I dread assembling, but also disassembling. Tents are just a pain in the ass. You have poles, tarps, rain flies and…

Hey kids, keep sending in your photos for the Photo Me contest. So far we have had some good submissions, but we need more!!! Plus I just recieved the F-Stop gear in the mail this week, sick! Remember, send them to [email protected]. DO IT!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I won’t bore you with details of how busy we are, or that our pirated internet is down, or that we have been climbing or drinking every night,…

Crag Exposure »

[14 Jun 2008 | No Comment | 0 views]

I start out with a verbal sigh because Eldorado Canyon or Eldo, as its affectionately known, is a major Destination Crag that shouldn’t be penned with fleeting thoughts. I will probably fail one hundred percent, but here goes.

The canyon, characters, bolts or lack there of, pins, flakes, towers, and history make Eldo one of the most famous rock climbing areas in the U S of A. This sandstone wonder-canyon can make men cry, women swoon, and send Euros packing. Located…

A send analysis
[13 Jun 2008 | 7 Comments | 0 views]

Last week, I finally redpointed my spring project, Public Solitude in Clear Creek. For a grid bolted wall like Primo, the route is brilliant. I would try to describe it but you would probably quit reading. Suffice it to say that the route is hard for me. Really hard. Hard enough that it took me nearly 30 tries. To me, why I finally send a route is always sort of a mystery. Thus, in the spirit of science, I’ve decided to…

Letters of the Week
[13 Jun 2008 | 2 Comments | 1 views]


So just when I thought I couldn’t fit in here (D.C.) any worse…a girl from my building walks on the elevator and scoffs at me in my Chacos and prAna pants and asks “what exactly are you wearing?” Feeling like a total outcast from the “cool girl” crowd I head out to Great Falls park for some memorial day climbing with a couple friends. Of course the good climbing areas are pretty crowded and there just so happens to be…
