Awesome video and photos!. Tommy's trip was specifically catered for climbers. Notice the camping in rocks, etc. Also, most camp chores were prolly handled by the guides, another plus as time is limited. If one wanted to do any extensive climbing (which I would be one), it would prolly work best if the whole trips was made up of climbers. Not your typical rivertrip.
Not trying to get in a grudge match, just the facts here Friday. People have been busted for bolts in the Canyon in the past. Sounds like someones doing the homework, so that will work out there
Last year a climber decided to rappel the Deer Creek Falls and got his rope stuck. Instead of taking care of his problem he just left it
Canyoneers heard of the arrant rope and ran in to remove it. The rivertrip was fined, and Deer Creek Narrows was closed for good. So now no one will be able to visit that area again
We should prolly be more careful and respectful of the area so more closures don't occur? It's good that someones checking with the park to clear up the rules because we wouldn't want to bring more restrictions than there already are?
Reminds me of Rocket the Climbing Rassler. There once was this wrestling coach PE teacher. Every year Coach gets beat by the rival school. This year it looks like there will be no change
The coach has gone over it and over it. He was sure to lose by a match. While sulking one day in gym class he sees Rocket climbing the rock wall. He is amazing. One handed pull ups, two finger monkey swings HE IS STRONG! and physically smart. He can master any problem. Suddenly the coach has an idea! Rocket should wrestle. For weeks Coach trains Rocket for the big match. Now Rocket, Your wrestler Luigi is an exchange student from Italy, and he only has one move, but he is really good at it. He as pinned everyone with his one move. THE PRETZEL! If you can stay out of the Pretzel you will surely win. OK Coach. Well after days of practicing staying out of the Pretzel he gets to the big match, and Luigi and Rocket are the last match. It's tied. The match begins. For two periods Rocket is winning, he is too strong for the pretzel, and the coach is amazed. Finally after all these years we are going to win he tells the manager. In the next second Luigi has contorted his body around ROcket and he has Rocket in the tightest Pretzel anyone has ever seen
A great sigh goes over the stands. Just when the Referee is about to slam the mat, a wrestler gives out a yell and all of a sudden Rocket jumps out on top and Pins Luigi the undefeated wrestler. The stands go crazy, and ROcket is showered with praise. Between all of the texting, and girls phone #'s being passed to Rocket the Coach asks Rocket, how did you do it? How did you get out of the Pretzel? You must tell me! Well coach, I was in the pretzel thinking I'm done, what can I do? when I saw these testicles right in front of my face? So I bit them as hard as I can!?! What?? Coach asked? You bit your opponents balls? That's not legal! Uh... no coach.. I didn't do anything illegal. I bit my own balls!! You would be amazed at what you can do when someone bites his own balls!!
If I win? you have to bite your own bean bags?
