It’s “Wash, Rinse, Repeat” At Lincoln Lake For Graham & Woods

It’s “Wash, Rinse, Repeat” At Lincoln Lake For Graham & Woods

Stop me if you’ve heard this before:  another week, another hard boulder added to the talus near Mt. Evans’ Lincoln Lake by Dave Graham and Daniel Woods.  This has become such a consistent theme throughout the summer of 2010 that I thought it might be helpful to create a Mad Lib to help streamline the reporting process .  Here’s what I came up with:

The other day _________________ did the FA of ___________________________________
            Graham or Woods             title of book Dave Graham likes
at Lincoln Lake suggesting a grade of ________________.  It was quickly
                                      # between V13-15
repeated by _______________ and both were reportedly extremely
            Graham or Woods
_________________________ about this _______ new development.
word conveying excitement              adj.

So if I was going back and reporting on the developments that can be gleaned from reading the 8a scorecards of Graham and Woods over the weekend I might fill out the Lincoln Lake Mad Lib like such (feel free to play along at home):

The other day Dave Graham did the FA of We Can Build You at Lincoln Lake suggesting a grade of V14. It was quickly repeated by Daniel Woods and both were reportedly very psyched! about this sick new development.

Unfortunately, the usefulness of this Mad Lib may be short lived as the clock is seriously ticking on the season at Lincoln Lake.  In fact there may only be a single digit number of days left, which is not great news if you flew to the States from Finland and promptly blew a huge hole in your finger like Nalle Hukkataival did.

Update: Jamie Emerson was on the scene with a nice photo recap of the weekend’s action.  How could I not include the Sheriff in the Mad Lib????

      He didn’t mention it in his post specifically, but presumably he’d want to try it provided it cools down enough in Boulder while he is there.

    the adjective is ALWAYS psyched , and V13-14 isnt really a development

      Yeah it is. The problem was found, cleaned, the landing built up. It was developed. Its a development for the depth of problems at the area.

    …and then Nalle came along, repeated in 5 and took a stroll down the mountain.

    “The Exfoliator” wasn’t that hard apparently.

      Just goes to show how many different variables affect a climber’s performance on a given day or over a given short period. Exfoliator took Woods a lot of work (for him) yet others come along and do it much quicker.

  1. Neues von Daniel Woods, Nalle Hukkataival, Dave Graham und Co. [Mt. Evans] : Kletterszene - September 21, 2010

    […] Dave Graham konnt am Freitag, rechts von Evil Backwards (8B+), ein neues Projekt “beenden”: We Can Build You (V14/8B+). Ein Problem durch ein kräftiges Dach, mit einer greisligen Zange für Links, anschließend wird auf Auflegern traversiert. Das war , lt. Jamie Emerson, Chefberichterstatter, eines der ersten Probleme, die Dave da unten fand, geputzt und jetzt auch geklettert ist. Und, und, und … wer hätte es gedacht, einen Tag später macht Daniel Woods gleich die zweite Begehung. Brian, von Climbingnarc, hätte auch einen Vorschlag für zukünftige Begehungen da oben, ein Lückenext-Formular. […]
