How do I know you are telling the truth and you don't just want the whole place to yourself?

Why isn't it called the Rocklands? It is land with rocks on it.

I am not shamed that I climb 15s. I sometimes even enjoy a 13. There are some very nice 15s out there.

Yup, you are exactly right, dont bother with anything over 17 and never NEVER climb anything longer than 6 bolts.....

Doesn't anyone have something constructive to do?
There's no point being pessimistic, because it probably won't work

The others are right Drifter, Rocklands is a waste of time. Just a few scrappy boulders in a field. Really NOT worth even going. Dont bother. Silvermine is in a class of it's own, and those 15's there are stellar! I read in \"Rock&Ice\" that the 15's at Silvermine are 'World Class', which means that it's acceptable by American standards. And you can be sure that this is a high standard by looking at their inbred leader and retards like Paris Hilton.

Seriously though, Drifter, dont bother with Rocklands, you'd hate it there. Apparently, there is a new 12 at Silvermine. Have you 'sent' it yet? :wink:
