So my climbing partner for Mexico, Tim Emmett, broke his ankle last week (no not base jumping, cat skiing). We were supposed to leave on March 13th, but his cast won’t be removed for 3-4 weeks. So, it looks like the El Gigante trip will have to be postponed. Shit. In the meantime, I need to find somewhere to go and climb, the weather here has been SICKy beautiful, but I need more consistency, and vitamin D. Hmmm, maybe back down south, Nevada? Cali? Arizona? Maybe Smith? We’ll see, where my heart and available partners and cheap plane tickets take me. We’ll see…I got some deep thinking to do. Very deep.
In the meantime, here’s a cool little clip of Tim for his lecture tour last year, he’s incredibly animated and makes for a perfect public speaker, not to mention climbing partner, and there’s something about that goddamn British accent, it doesn’t matter what they say, it always sounds sort of interesting, those bastards got it all lined up, even when they’re drunk (which is much of the time) they still sound engaging, even more so perhaps. That’s probably the reason more North American athletes aren’t proper television stars, they sound like idiots when they get drunk where as the Brits, sound they’re even smarter than sober.
