Also climbing has just becoming doable again here in the NRV...shit has been snowed on, and then ice covered.  As I write, now its raining...fuck.  Tired of the sporadic good, or atleast dry, conditions locally, well here are some short clips from drier days.

Escape to Lunchbag

How do you know you're a strong climber? You make a climbing video that has absolutely no climbing in it, whatsoever. If you've got the balls to pull that off and not fear being heckled by the literal and digital peanut galleries, then fear not young climber--you crush. If you can't perform such a fearless act, then get the fuck out our way. Luckily, Clif, Jay, and myself all have enormous balls . . .
