Last year around this time, Bassheads voted/argued/discussed their ten favorite new lines of the year.  B3bouldering had a recent post on Colorado’s year and all the newness.  I was all “Our Shiz way BETTER”.  Let’s argue again…

Oh and at some point we need to update our lists

Not to plug my own work…but here’s my list: My top ten favorite new Gunks lines, in no order

1. Ideas are Bulletproof

2. Beer Club For Men

3. Egoterrorist

4. Alcoholocaust

5. Seraphim

6. Steppin Razor

7. Raccoon City Man

8. Sarah’s Unnamed kneebar problem…Its got three of ‘em.  And she flashed the FA.

9. Harmonic Tremors

10. ISRC (Instant Single Right Classic. A stretch? Maybe, but I really dig this problem)

Which others am I missing? If you stretched the list to include all of NY, then I would add JL’s Crisis to the list.

And what projects need to get done in ’09?  Freebird project, etc.

  25. sockhands Says:

    seriously: all you bitches climb a million more days than i do and i assume many of you know where lowell lives, yet you cannot spring for a damn camera and/or steal one from josh and/or convince ds to shoot climbing shots.

    still, on the off chance that i actually climb, i have been fully capable of producing a million images of lowball choss from such session.

    conclusion: you all are vastly inferior at rock climbing than i since everyone knows it is not what you climb or how hard you climb, but how hard you spray media.

    i’m going to new jack city the gunks. it is mine now. you frittered its bounty on non-media sessions. now you must leave. forever. mine mine mine.

    with disgust
