    Good discussion. Switchback sums up my feelings really well. And those lines! Holy shit dude I love loooooong boring lines like that.

    In summary here is my thirty one day season in no particular order.
    9 BCC, 7 Foothills, 6 Uintas, 5 West Desert, 2 MillCreek, 1 Cedar Breaks, 1 Current Creek

    I’ll probably get a few more turns in, but I’m more interested in running, fishing and bike stuff, expanding my garden, renovating my yard and kitchen, and making music and beer.

    Have a good summer

    Cheers!

    this is the closest thing i have to any mountain stoke, beautiful day this weekend climbing and exploring some new terrain, found a few great pitches of 5.10 splitter that I’m guessing no ones climbed before with plenty of more potential

    bunch of tracks in stairs, …broads and mill b coverage getting thin down low.

    That looks very fun to me! Dodging shark bites.

    Cool posts guys. I’m going in for shoulder surgery on Monday so I decided to take advantage of the low avy danger and bluebird skies today to achieve an objective I’ve been wanting to do for 4 or 5 years now.

    Hey Corey I hope the surgery went well and that you on your way to a full recovery. I’ve been meaning to reply about your shoulder issue for a while, but lack of internet and not visiting the site much has put it on the back burner.

    At any rate, I go in for an MRI Monday and it’s mostly a forgone conclusion at this point that I’ll need rotator cuff repair 🙁 Anyways, just curious what kind of recovery time you are looking at?

    Right now I’m feeling as though my summer (fishing, guitar playing, scrambling, biking and gardening) is over before it begins. Tell me it aint so.

    Cheers!

    Hey Doug – Sorry to hear that. Sounds like my situation is a little different. Luckily my rotator cuff survived but my issue was labrum related. The cartilage that holds the ball in the socket. From the people I see in PT, it seems like rotator cuff injuries are worse. I’m 6 weeks from my surgery date and yesterday I was able to get back on the road bike for a good 22 mile ride yesterday. I was told by my doctor that I would likely be able to even rock climb at 12 weeks. If you need recommendation for a doctor I can give you one. I feel and my physical therapists assure me he is pretty good. In short, I’m on my way to bag a few more peaks this late spring.

    Dan – I saw your post come through in my email but it never showed up on this site. We need to lobby the admins to fix this site.

    Ooh I’m glad yours was the lesser and I’m stoked you’re making good progress.

    There is still a chance I don’t need surgery but its sort of unlikely seeing that the injury occurred in December and has only gotten worse. Near as I can tell it’s a six month recovery if I have it scoped.

    I’m pretty stoked on my doctor, as he is an experienced ultra distance trail runner and understands where my head is at in terms of future activity levels and expectations. Thanks for the info

    Hey guys appreciate all the stoke and I still check in and enjoy everyones pics and conversations I just don’t have much to add. However, Doug and Corey I too am dealing with a shoulder injury. I have no clue what led to it except maybe some overuse. I was just reaching up high and felt a tweak and have not been able to raise my arm above my shoulder mainly when its stretched out to the side and I try to raise it. It’s been two weeks now with little improvement and I kinda self diagnosed rotator cuff but I have a month long surf trip coming up in June so not knowing is killing me. I have a doctors appointment Wednesday but would appreciate any advice you gained from going through the process. I guess one positive is it doesn’t hurt to run so I been hitting that hard but I want to get on my bike, ride, surf, etc. Anything would be appreciated possible excercises, doctors names, things to consider. Thanks in advance and stay positive. Take care

    Hey Nic, sorry to hear about your shoulder man. I’m still waiting to know exactly whats going to happen to mine. I had the MRI today, but won’t see my ortho until Thursday. I’m trying to be upbeat that it won’t be serious, but its been five months and has only gotten worse. Surgical recovery is said to last about six to nine months!

    I’m glad you are running and happy to say I’ve been able to do the same. I really want to do the Tushar Ultra in August.
    I’ll post again when I get more info. BTW I’m seeing Mark Scholl (yep doctor scholls) who happens to be a trail runner.

    Cheers and all the best

    RE: Shoulder

    I’ve had an MRI and met with my ortho yesterday. The good news is there doesn’t appear to be anything that requires surgery. The bad news is I have no explanation for the excruciating pain I wake up with promptly at 2am every morning.

    For now I’m being directed to do four to six weeks of PT to include.
    Eccentric, concentric and isometric exercises
    Deep tissue therapy
    Cervical spine program
    Scapular stability program

    Phonophoresis.
    Electrical Stimulation.
    Iontophoresis.
    Traction.
    Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation (TENS):
    Moist Heat (Hydrocollator)
    Cold/Ice.

    Cheers!

    Sorry to hear about all the injuries. It really sucks. I had another discussion with my doc and after clarification, he did have to repair my rotator cuff, bicep, and labrum. I’m at about 2 month from the surgery date and yesterday I did my first tour post-surgery. Also, my first tour on my Franken-dyna-split. It was fantastic. Just super good to get out again. Love me some late April pow.

    Nic – look into Bryan Fukushima. He was pretty good and spent a lot of time with me answering all my questions and things. Probably spent an hour with me the first time. From what I hear from the physical therapists, they like the doctors that allow them to start stretching you early (Post-surgery) to keep joints from locking up. Makes the recovery faster. He’s a shoulder specialist so he seemed to know his stuff well.

    Doug – Nights still are the worst for me pain-wise, but it is gradually going away.

    I’m supposed to be able to back to mountain biking in the next 2 weeks or so. I need to do a little bit more strengthening of the rotator cuff and bicep first though.
