At least…I think its report #2.

09/28, Oaf called to report that he was going to the rock gym with some friends. I had been goading him to drop by sometime, as we went climbing a few times back in our college days. Ironically, Mike and Mary were going to see a play and we had originally planned to go, but decided not to so that we could go to bed early. As a result, I had not previously planned to go climbing. Even more ironically, we went out for a drink afterwards; I did not go to bed early by any reckoning. To bring the irony to Morissettesque levels, X stayed up until after 11 watching Dawson’s Creek reruns on The N The N, with its lineup of vapid but irresistible teen dramas is fast becoming the most evil time sink on television.

Back to the climbing…met up with ole’ Oaf and 2 friends of his. After a brief refresher on tying the retraceable figure eight knot and a brief tutorial on the grisgris belay device, a-climbing be went. Too bad we went the night we did - on Tuesday the gym was empty. Not even the regulars were there. On Thursday, all the regulars were back…and lots more people, too! Both the toprope and boulder areas were quite crowded. We split into pairs and squeezed onto toprope stations wherever we could. Steve did pretty well considering he hasn’t touched a hold in probably 3 years!

We spent about an hour toproping and then I suggested trying a little bouldering just to wear ourselves out the rest of the way. It didn’t take us long before we gave up. It was a good workout. I pushed myself pretty hard in showing some boulder problems to the others when they weren’t sure where to go. Between that and the extra endurance needed for toproping, I was pretty beat!

After wrapping up at the rock gym, we headed across the parking lot to Max and Erma’s for some cold ones. Matt and James didn’t stick around too long The beer didn’t agree with Matt too much. But Steve and I hung around for an hour or so, catching up on what’s new and what’s old. It’s close to a year since I last saw Steve. He came to see Prelude, but we went to the cast party after the show and there wasn’t much time to hang out and catch up. Steve is better at keeping in touch than I am, so he always has a lot of information on what people have been up to.

Matt and James live fairly close to the gym, so hopefully they’ll come by more. Steve is a little far, but maybe he’ll become a regular, too.

Sorry for the lack of pics. Ole’ MDA has a much nicer cam than ole’ Kicky, but I just haven’t had any opportunity to take pics since I got it!
