There are 4 bikes. You can't really see the 4th behind the guy in the black jacket.

The guy in the black jacket is actually a Democrat from Boston.

I spent a week climbing at Thunder Bay, Ontario, about a 15-hour drive from Toronto which we did over two days.

This is definitely off the beaten path. To access the cliffside, we had to drive though potted dirt roads, bushwhack uphill, and scramble up precarious boulder fields. Even the most popular of routes here have only seen a dozen ascents or so. We had our food and tents packed into the car, supplies lasting the most part of the week. Not counting driving through town and stopping for gas, we had seen exactly 3 people in our entire week.

Panoramic of the bay.
Image

Climbing just left of the pine tree. Not on this climb but shortly afterwards, one of my friends accidentally kicked off a rock which flew towards my head like a frisbee. I ducked at the last moment and it whizzed over me. A smaller chunk hit our rope slicing it halfway deep. I had to tie off (and later cut out) the damaged end leaving us with a 10m shorter length of rope (originally 60 metres). Definitely a scary situation and you wouldn't want to fall on a rope cut halfway through.
Image

Climbing just underneath the giant roof. It's a traverse pitch that spans horizontally rather than vertically. I took a fall while traversing causing me to fall downward and swing sideways, the force of the fall pulled a "nut" (a metal wedge placed in a constriction in the rock to protect against falls), causing me to fall and swing out even further. Hanging out in the middle of space away from the wall, the only way to get back up was to ascend up the rope using some kind of ad-hoc rope capture method which isn't any fun when trying to do so in a self-rescue scenario. If you're expecting to ascend a rope, you'd usually have special rope capture devices with you, but no one brings that kind of gear with them if you're just expecting to climbing up the rock.
Image

Awesome trip, adventurous but really rough going. My forearms are covered in scratches from the rock and bushwhacking and my legs are bruised. I've been back for a week now and my body still hasn't recovered, I'm sore everywhere.

Sounds like an awesome adventure. Beautiful pictures as usual. How old are you now anyway? Recovery seems to take substantially longer... I fractured my wrist about 5 weeks ago on the dirtbike, just starting to get full motion back now. Hope you get back to 100% faster than I am.

Age does affect recovery, but I think for me it’s more of a result of months of quarantine and I’m not in shape anymore. It’s hard to maintain peak performance in climbing. I did some short trips locally to climb outdoors following quarantine, returned to the climbing gym 2 weeks before this trip, and I can feel that’s I’m climbing a few grades lower and losing my power endurance. Even the skin on my hands are softer and get worn away faster.

The flip side is I think this trip helped condition me better back towards my peak performance. I’m up a grade at the climbing gym, so I’m on my way there.

Breathtaking :up:

.. and I'm off sailing tomorrow for 10+ days having spent today affixing the stainless steel gas BBQ (hang over the stern), the outboard motor bracket (holds the smallest outboard for the tender (rubber ducky)), stowing some grocery provisions and the biggest job was setting up and furling the sails. Massive and much heavier fabric that I imagined. Back soon with pics :)

Recently I did a full rebuild of my office, needed to change things up and declutter my work area. Also upgraded my case after 6 years and really liking how it turned out.

Considering I work in here full-time during the day, I like drawing the curtains and turning on the RGB lights if I'm gaming at night. Helps set the boundaries between work and personal time.

All for colour change lighting, I’ve got a fair bit of it but I would suggest hiding the actual LEDs if you can.

Fair point, I'd definitely use a diffuser if I were to put it in the living room or something.

I've watched enough pornhub to spot a studio apartment when I see one. Blacklights are a bold choice.
