Re: PDs at Lode

I agree with you clif. At this point, the inertia of the Red being a mega-climbing destiniation is already moving. I strongly disagree with the notion that more crags equals many more new climbers coming to the Red. There may have been a correlation when the Red was more unknown, but now since it's ...

Re: Project Draws: How Long is Too Long?

Now, with all that in place, the common scnenario is going to be dude-brah hangs his draws on Snooker and then goes down to let his brochacho warm up on Buff. Meanwhile someone else comes along from the Undertow wall trail and removes his draws from Snooker while hanging their own and leaves them a...

Re: PDs at Lode

People can debate the aesthetics of permadraws on the wall all day, though I'm not sure that any real decisions should be made on that (at the motherlode specifically) compared to many other factors that seem more important. And assumming anyone who is not an FA or landowner actually has a say anywa...

Re: PDs at Lode

Maybe we could put up a sign at the base with your phone number on it and a map to area 6, so you can set all the brahs straight. That might cut the numbers. I've never been to Area 6, though I feel if I'm going to give you a hard time, I feel I must also thank you for the many routes you've put up...

Re: PDs at Lode

what is wrong with the first person up a route in the morning leaving their draws up for the day for everyone else to climb on? last burn of the day, pull them. For the aesthetics of the wall at the end of the day when it's night time and there are no hikers/climbers to see the wall... ok. For the ...

Re: PDs at Lode

I disagree with one of the main points of this argument and will be happy to tell you in person. Removing draws so people don't get on routes over their head has nothing to do with showing respect for the land and helping maintain access. It's just a pain in the ass when you want to warm-up or redpo...

Lost Grigri2 at the Lode

Not holding out much hope, but my grigri 2 seems to have walked off while at the lode. It's blue and I'm happy to describe the biner. If you found it, or came across it in your gear, remember Spike Lee's 1989 movie.

Thanks,

Re: Iniquity vs. Cell Block Six

Having an over-inflated grade on a sport route somehow diminishes my personal experience with the climb. I am sure not everyone feels this way but regardless I wouldn't want to take away from other climbers enjoyment. So go with the adage, "pick the lowest grade you can say out loud without laughin...

Re: Iniquity vs. Cell Block Six

You may be right. Jury is still out...the votes are split right now. But as always, if I am unsure I go for the lower grade. I find this extremely interesting. Why, exactly? Would you say that even if the grade is really close, that being considered a sandbagger is better than a fluffer (connotatio...

Re: Iniquity vs. Cell Block Six

let's find a 'fuzzy' solution We could go New River Gorge style and call it 12b/c, but I guess the slash grade is a whole different debate. Reasonable. My bet is these v5's that felt easier for you had big reaches between positive holds... Good point. The way I should have phrased it is that I stru...

Re: Iniquity vs. Cell Block Six

Love all the opinions... it's really good to see how and to what extent my strengths and weaknesses make me feel that routes are easier or harder for me than the given grade. I have to agree with DonnyP that there are no moves I have found to be harder on any RRG 12b than the bottom of Iniquity. I'v...

Re: Iniquity vs. Cell Block Six

JR, I've sent all of those routes. I will now try to call Iniquity 12c. Iniquity is 12c. There's definitely logic to your argument, but as someone I know to be able to pull hard bouldering moves, I think your perception is off. For that matter, I think Kipp is stronger than he gives himself credit f...

Re: Iniquity vs. Cell Block Six

Thanks for the story Kipp, not to mention single-handedly putting that crag up. I think our climbing styles are very different, as we have debated the grades of a few climbs, usually agreeing to disagree. Those opening moves on Iniquity are hard for me. I'm working harder on those moves than on any ...
