Rock climbing

Haven't posted in a little while, so...

Of to a great start really with this whole blog thing. Normally you at least have the motivation in the beginning. I've been working on my site, but there is still nothing there yet. Just trying to write/collect some good content. Make up some graphics, spiff things up a bit. I have been rock climbing a lot lately. Here's the new happiest place on earth ROCK'n & JAM'n. I recently graduated myself from 5.7 to 5.8. If you are not familiar with rock climbing rating systems, 5.anything refers to a freeclimbing. That's anything that can be climbed without ropes or any special equipment (shoes and chalk excepted). 6.anything requires equipment and 4.anything from what I understand is not really climbing. A beginner can probably climb up to 5.6 or 5.7 no problem, but that's all wuss stuff now. My brother can do the 5.9s. Sort of pisses me off really, but he has been going all summer, so I guess he's earned that. Seems that most of the people there climb in the 5.10-5.12 range. Makes you feel pathetic to see some little kid climb something that you cant even hang on, but if I weighed 80 pounds I'd probably get up the wall a little easier too.

Starting off here

I've tried a few times to put together some kind of blog. I like reading them, and it looked fun to try to throw one together. Usually I just edited all of the HTML myself in notepad, so it's understandable that I never really lasted all that long with one of these. This should be a little easier, so maybe I'll stay with it a while longer. I'll put up som crap about me later, and scrape up some links to good sites, but for today this is likely all I'll get put up. And a link to my site, although it's not updated much more than any blog I've tried.
