Dabbing of the Times

Ummm, Garrett just snuck a "Dab" onto the damn NY Times website. WOOT!

“I haven’t competed for 10 years,” said Garrett Koeppicus of Brooklyn. “If this comp wasn’t right in the smack dab of New York City, the place I love and the place I’ve lived for nine years, I’d probably have nothing to do with it.” -GK

P.S. Plusalso, seriouzly - Dabathon?

More Sandstone

A couple shots from the other weekend at LRC.

Dave Failla on Mono Doigt v5
Mono Doigt

Initially, thinking of mono pulling was pretty much a turn off for me, but the pockets scattered up the face turned out to be vurr cool. I bet this thing climbs even better will cool temps. Juicing the first "mono" requires bearing down with the middle finger and stacking the ring and index finger (or whatever u can fit on top of it. You then get a high step on a gunksy pebble or start hold) and crank up to a smaller mono, then balancy move surfing out left to good pocket, jack up feet then either weird-extended-cross move to crimp rail or top out straight up via slopppperz. Like a Boss. A V5 BOSS. OHYAYER.

Now and Zen v6/7
Now & Zen (V6/7)

Sharp left hand crimp and slightly less sharp right hand pinch to start. Right heel up on shelf then big move (for me) to accuracy-requiring-bastard-crimp. Adjust feet, catch small crimp out left then fun surfing via jugs to top. This thing was pwning me, kinda threw a wobbler, can't lie. Waaaahhh!!! Oh, bouldering...

asdfasdf. I am vicariously bouldering through blog. Hope there is climbing this weekend. HOLLAH!!

Quarte and Deuce My Loade

Big Up to Bissel for channeling the day's energy with this fantastic little vidsky. A muy bueno start to the season.

Hey all,

No doubt some of you have heard the news, but our traveling boy has managed to bust his ankle. He's making serious sad face right now, so I'm trying to organize something for him. The cost of the surgery will wipe him clean, and end his trip way, way, way too early.

Check out the page I put up, and if you can, help give our sausage-finger buddy a hand.


(also, please post/repost. thanks dabbers!)

Street Mosaic

As some of you know, I have been working on launching a digital guidebook. The result has taken some time but Version 1 is officially in the Apple App Store for the iPhone. Here is the Link.

While designed for any type of travel, Street Mosaic origin was actually climbing focused. Now its an easy way to ge0-tag a climb or anything you want. All you have to do is take a pic, write a quick description, and share it.
The app does the mapping and sharing and you can search the database for nearby climbing no matter where you are.
Images people take can help in the actual identification of the climb instead of a hand-drawn pic.
Most importantly, I made it FREE.
