Bouldering Discussion / Re: Ahab's in the Scalp
« on: October 01, 2014, 05:27:08 AM »
that sounds like the same piece of rock to me. I believe it is the correct problem (debatable grade) as the piece of rock looks very like Moby Dick when you are standing back looking at it. Ahab was the sailor in the story I think.

I haven't managed to climb it yet so I can't guess at the grade. Although, it is a nice piece of rock to sit under :)

"big move straight to the lip and top from SS."
problem number 18 in the first edition bouldering guide.
Was wondering what people think of this problem? I have not topped out, or linked anything on it. Managing to get my bum off the ground is a start right? :)

Bouldering Discussion / Re: "Bouldering in Ireland" reprint

with minor updates would the Fair Head section change much as there is a full guide for there also. a straight reprint sounds easiest/quickest to the market, then,  with a version 2 in a couple years time. it seems like there is well enough for a foreign visiting climber in the current book.
although what about webpages like rockfax etc.... is there anyway of knowing what they can do if an online database is made on their site?
that'll be my "less than" two cents worth.

Bouldering Discussion / Highballs

anyone do many routes in Dalkey or elsewhere that they wouuld consider highballs? routes like Little Wing in the quarry, "unprotected" and often damp so when you come across it dry would you be tempted to hop on and 'give it a go'?
its on the same slab as bird brain and northern exposure, which are often dry and top roped regularly by many people.

Bouldering Discussion / Summer Midges
« on: September 08, 2013, 05:34:37 PM »
to start a random conversation;
I'm quite prone to itching badly to midge bites, and being the end of summer, probably lots of people have had their run ins with the buggers over the last few months.
It seems that rubbing banana skin (inside of) on the bite really calms the itch down (knowledge courtesy of Terry). this was very handy for me to know as usually, a banana is somewhere inside my bag, squished or unsquished its the skin that i needed. This led to many happy(ier) evenings out than expected.
Any other tips/advices from ye all?
