best way to avoid hang-offs is to give it that little extra on the routes. hah, im betting when you are hanging off a route & going for the flash that hang-off will be a real motivator!

I hope team garage - Moncton is planning on making the trip. Everyone from NBCCSJ and St.A is expected as well. Halifax too! If you can, try and give a lift to someone new... we plan on setting lots of easy fun lines.

Is there a category for old out of shape 'off the couch' variety of climbers?

If a husband speaks in the woods, and his wife is not there to hear him...is he still wrong?

Suck it up Martha! You climb harder off the couch than I do in peak shape. Any additional whining and you'll be -10 points for each infraction. :twisted:

Thank Gawd this isn't a rope comp. I'm not a fan of Penalty Slack. ;)
