The last two weeks have been very cluttered, but it’s now well into December and MikeDiDonato.com is back in black.
A bunch of things have happened.
#1. MikeDiDonato.com has returned from the dead and has developed new superpowers.
JonAbad mentions a bunch of the excitement in the post previous to this one, I’d also like to point out the exciting filmstrip of features to the left. Provided I keep up with the posting this is the schedule:
Tuesday: Defy McQuaid!
Wednesday: House of Rock Video!
Thursday: Miscellaneous (either a movie review, MSPaint image, random hilarity, How-to, etc)
Friday: MSPaint Contest!
Please feel free to participate via the comments, and hopefully much entertainment will be had.
#2. I climbed my first 5.12 cleanly.
Cleanly yes, flawlessly no. But I made it to the top on my own power. For those of you unfamiliar with climbing terms, 5.12 is the difficulty that many equate with the move from intermediate to advanced climbing. It’s a huge breakthrough. 2006 will hopefully see a lot more outdoor climbing, so that I can use the techniques I’ve developed in the gym on real rock. Traditional climbing will follow. and I don’t plan on living in the shadow of 5.13 forever, so really my training has just begun.
It’s good to be back folks.
