as a blogger, I SUCK!! OK, I even admit that in the past I posted under dates different than when I wrote the posts, but I am coming clean. . . I haven't blogged in weeks!

Well, on the plus side. . . I healed myself in 3 weeks. . . I swear! my docs are in denial!

So after the break, I spent 3 days with my friends (they let me boulder at their gym with my splint) and then I headed off. I drove, true, and maybe I scrambled and rappelled to check bolts, etc. . . but I didn't climb. . . I checked out Ul Bawi, then I went to Jeonju and chilled and worked (and looked for a summer job. . . realizing this is going to take a while. . .) and then went to Maisan!! I swear I didn't climb! My belayers totally hauled me up to take photos!! Sunday, I jumarred! And got some fun video!! MY GOD, Maisan during peak cherry blossom season is heaven on earth! it's so friggin beautiful!! I was psyched to run into my Korean teacher, Kyeong-young, with her family, enjoying the beautiful festival. And Sunday climbing with Rick, Dave, Mike and Heidi (OK, so H and I didn't climb!) just hanging out and having soooooo much fun. was incredible!!

And then--well-- my city is getting a climbing wall. . . it was decided about a year after I started submitting my suggestion (much lesser Korean cities sported climbing walls. . . Jeonju was a provincial capital with none!!). . anyway, the wall is built-- and it is amazing!! They are still building the sport park around it. . . and still paving the roads there. . . should be finished in Summer!

And I got to check out a new climbing area. . . still in conception, but coming along nicely!!! The Jeonju climbers found and developed it!

And then heading to Mokpo, and chillin' with my homegirl Ricky. . . partying a bit too much. . . but damn, for some reason, her kitchen was magic for me. . . esp when I made Dal and curried veggies. . . samish recipe as usual, but everything hit the right notes. . . was oh-my-god good!! Sadly, as usual I improvised and so may never hit that again! Still, at least I made a lot in that go!! I had similar luck with French Onion Soup and marinated Brie for "French Night". . . now Mokpo folks all think I am an amazing chef, but it's really Ricky's magic kitchen!

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion

- drawn the lines

- write names and grades (an example…
