I'd move to France in a damn second. Fuck Texas.

Sandstone is Godstone.

Plus beautiful women, the finest wine, cheese, bagettes, and that rad dry Swiss sausage. Carving off mad slices with the Opinel. Serve it to a goddess in the sun shimmered meadows. That's the damn life.

Are you in Texas now?

On another note... I love peeing in my backyard. I have peed in my own backyard more times in the last month than in 5 years living in Germany. And I had a backyard most of those years, there is just very little privacy in Germany. Fuck yeh yard pissin.

La Marie Rose was a fuckin oven today... 75 degrees, full sun and no breeze. And still the noobs line up to grease up the first three footholds.

HAH.

That's my toddler in his pirate helmet. You can see his strider bike in the lower left of the frame, where noobz were almost falling on it. He was rippin up the trails with his homeboy.

To be fair, Marie Rose is the most popular moderate in the most popular area. There are so many better problems that are shaded and solitary, even on the holiday weekends. This was a big German holiday, so that explains all the big Germans in the pic...

Europe also seems to be full of grade A backfat as well.

If you came to visit, I would take you to the serene spots with more stellar climbs than backfat asshats. Sometimes you end up at tha cooove because your kid made a foret friend... at least the hecklin is good.

Shit, that place looks more crowded than the gym on a snowy winter evening.

The Vulkaneifel in Germany. No crowds, a handful of problems, problems are all bad, terrible steep landings, choss quality rock and awful food. There are reasons people come here and avoid Glees... although one time Jan Hojer put up a hard eliminate there!!1

Font in the summer has a surprising amount of boldering action and even a lot of visitors climbing here. I mean... they are noobs from the Netherlands, but the psyche is high, as are the temps. Good for yellow circuits while the kid plays in the sand tho. The ticks are an issue.

And now the rain begins. At least on a Monday morning. I was so worried about my lawn moss and I think in a month I will look back fondly on the days of barren, mossless lawn as I hack back endless mushrooms with a machete.

Update: still raining. The one day was an anomaly. No wonder 'fontsgiving' isn't a thing...

full on -20c winter here in northern ontario, so much snow! the ground is freezing well.

the only rock climbing is in the dog shed, out of doors, under the shed. radiant heater to thaw fingers between tries and to let the dogs sleep comfortably.
