Winter Doldrums

Well, it seems like it happens every year about this time... I get into a rut. I climb on plastic once a week and am generally less motivated. Of course I want to road trip and see new things, but Tahoe is mostly socked in and with Siemay working and little Zun around the options are just not amazing.

I could be hitting Bishop, but I'm just not into the bleeding anymore. Everything that I have left to do there costs blood, sweat and tears and most of all pain.

So enjoy a couple random photos! I should be training for Joes in a couple weeks, but I can't force myself... check it:

  1. Yes. photodump if you don't have content. it's still psych-inducing.

  2. Michael's Belay Glasses: Don't crane your neck while belaying. Michael's Belay Glasses allow the belayer to comfortably assume a closer position to the base of climbs which translates to a safer belay. They allow the belayer to more fully concentrate their attention to the task at hand, especially on long, protracted sessions. They accomplish this at roughly a 1/4 of the cost of the other product on the market, putting this easier into the average climbers budget. One of the advantages of prism ware is that they don't invert the image of the climber the way a mirror would and that they slightly magnify what one sees. All belay glasses currently manufactured use a 60 degree (not 90) deviation. 90 degrees would have a great deal of the field of vision obscured by ones face and hair. Yes, they do take some getting used to insofar as the belayers ground level field of vision, the fact that the image one sees appears as a low angle slab, and that they are heavier than a pair of sunglasses. However, most climbers quickly learn to feel more then comfortable using and overwhelmingly swear by them. They come with a carrying case and are deliverable within 6-8 weeks.
