rocks in india

so round two of india trip has not been the most relaxing. from the minute i've stepped off the plane i have worked 14 hours on a consistent daily basis.

hyderabad is a another boulder mecca. unfortunately most of the rocks are being blasted to make room for all the noveau riche IT industry expat housing.

everyday my driver (yes, i am cheauffered around)takes me through the different routes to the office and everyday i see so much potential boulders. the minute i have some time off i'm going to this park that is littered with rocks (many of which has been spray painted by advertising). the picture above is right outside the parking lot of my office. so close, yet so far due to my insane hours. sorry for the crap ass picture quality. phone camera doesn't zoom too well. a few more on flickr.

The incoming photo assault from this past weekend is going to be impressive. Things this worthwhile, just like a proud send, require some prior meditation and forethought.

So I've begun my portion of the assault the same way. These are shots of those moments before the climbing begins. So take another breath, focus on your beta, and chalk up a few more times...

Dabtronics Convention 2006

So this past weekend the DABTRONICS® crew convened in the greater Albany area (and that's ALL-bany, not AL-bany) for 3 straight days of crushing rock. Needless to say, the trip was quite successful; however, even if we spun into a parallel universe and ended up dabbing through the whole trip, it would have still been fun as shit.

The rides in the big white van were so pimping, it was unbelievable. And the facilites and hospitality of the Koeppicus Ranch were excellent. 5*****s. Much thanks to G and his Dad

My body feels pretty tired, but I am not neeeearly as wrecked as I was after last year's excursion. Probably due to the fact that we just crushed everything so quickly and kept moving on, YAY-ER. Can you feel the spray yet? Well, it actually aint spray, I'm just sayin' how it is, ya nawmean'?

Ok, I felt like I was going to say something else...props to the Felch for the one of the most balls out sends I've ever born witness to. Snooze Button!! So rad. So radical. Radizzleness. Props to the whole crew in fact, cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuushed!!! Was a beautiful weekend with great friends, climbing, food, throwing stars, fire works, combos, pimp rides, tunes, and everything else...

P.S. - Here are some random pics, more pics to come.
