New training Technique

How did that route get that name? Jokes. Funny bits. Crag humour.

New training Technique

Postby Captain Haddock » Tue Sep 19, 2006 1:39 pm

Hi there,

Came up with a new training technique last night after a couple of ales. Used a 12mm drill bit to drill holes into a dead syringa tree in my mate's back yard. We drilled in different combinations of holes which led us to calling the tree the \"Bowling Pin Crags\". Strenuous finger holds on a slight overhang. What's nice is you can control the depth and the direction of the holes to form different moves. I'll send you the address if you want ...

I have two pics, one of us drilling the holes and another of one of the routes. Not sure how to post pics though.
Billions of blue blistering barnacles!!!

Hi Captain Haddock,

Are you sure the tree was dead, it is a recognised fact that sometimes the Syringa tree can play possum when it is threatened. PLease consult your neighbourhood biologist before you drill holes into any trees - its their earth.

:lol: Just kidding, I just had to get a bunny hugger chirp in there before someone serious did. When you're done maybe you can make a canoe :D enjoy !
