I actually had one of those just the other night, and wasn't terribly impressed. Tasty enough to finish, certainly, but I've had plenty of tastier stouts.

Since crossfitter is holding my quickdraws ransom, I have to come to this. Any leftover buddy passes for the climbing gym floating around?

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Will be in New Orleans running too many miles this wkend, so no go for me. Enjoy!
Next time I'll be lobbying for the new kid on the block, FATE, instead of the overly crowded and over-hyped SS. :yawn:

I'll join you guys for climbing and HH. I'm willing to buy a beer for anyone who gets me free admission to the rock gym.

I'll join at least for the BRC part...it won't take much to persuade me to go to the SS.

I can get someone in for free at the BRC. Let me know.

Now that it's getting close, I've put up a poll to get a rough headcount for Friday. This is important so that we get an appropriately sized table so please vote accordingly.

For those attending the BRC pre-party:
If you haven't gotten lined up with a free buddy pass, your first visit is only $10. You can rent (or borrow) shoes, a harness, and everything else you need too

If that convinces anyone to learn for their first time, I'd be happy to show up earlier and teach you how to belay.

See you all Friday!

Beware, there is a climbing competition on Friday 6-9pm at the BRC, which means it will be even busier than normal.

I'll be there for both the beer and the climbing - am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new folks as well!

It'll be fine. The comp isn't that big and the competitors will only be on a select few routes, most of which are 12's anyway
