Nemesis Rigs

Somewhere his latest post recapping some “nemesis projects” that have been giving him trouble of late in Colorado, Dave Graham makes some good points that could apply to any of us:

Many of these Nemesis Projects I keep secret. I don’t like people to know how difficult they feel for me, because they will tell me i’m weak, make fun of me, all Colorado style, and give me lots of shit. “Its an easy 8b dude, I don’t know what your problem is” or “Maybe you should train more in the gym, I think you need to bulk up” I’m sensitive to that talk.

Colorado can suck. It would be just like the kids used to do at that Jewish Day Camp my Dad sent me too.

I was the only kid who wasn’t Jewish. So they gave me shit. Which wasn’t cool. I want to avoid that.

Somewhere in there.

    Jewish day camp was a mixed bag and I -am- Jewish. My fondest memory was climbing the “hard” section of the tiny climbing wall and getting a Coca-cola for it. A less fond memory was losing at euker 0-10 and having to run through the entire camp in tighty whities.

    “…things stack up as the years go on. My stance is that they all need to get cleaned up and ascended, at whatever expense. Everything needs to be climbed, and if you have tried it, and cannot do it, you are cursed to return to it to make peace in the future….”

    True story, I think about every climb that I have put significant time into with no success at least briefly most days.

    My current nemesis rig, Slashface (V3), is five grades lower than my hardest ascent. It is across the country (I am in Florida it is in California), and requires a significant commitment to get to, but it is going to be worth every bit of effort when it goes down.

    I won’t stop until it does.
