Re: Motherlode Hill

Jesse Wong, Ed Mank and my son Will found another Lode Hill climb failure on Monday afternoon (Oct 10, 2016). After the car was winched back onto the road, Ed Mank drove the car up the hill for the young couple. Photo Credit: Jesse Wong [img]U:\Documents\Pictures\14610891_641469769358155_45473955001...

Re: Looking for some books

You could always contact Michael Chessler and ask him to keep and eye open for the guides you are after... It may take a while...

Re: Visiting from Australia

To aid Aussie-American communications - Caribe's "modest but eye-catching breasts" = norks. Hyahno, try not to get confused between a "good root" and a "good route". You'll likely have opportunities for both in the Red. Either way, it'd be best if you keep your harness on!!! Also, leave the budgie s...

Re: 2015 V-day Fixed Gear Fundraiser

Ian, thank you for organizing and coordinating the Fixed Gear initiative. I can only imagine how much time and effort you put into all the posts, scaring up swag, buying and distributing bolts.

Re: Cabin for Sale

AJ, sorry to see you are moving and selling the cabin. I had a lot of fun staying in that cabin; Thanksgiving will forever be Reggae Thanksgiving if I'm in the Red.

I hope you find a buyer in the climbing community, PLJ

Re: Arches on RRGCC Land

Either way, that crag has a rather significant and over arching (bad pun intended) wow factor! Thank you for the hard work for bolting the routes.

Actually, I have installed an eye-bolt in one of the set-screw holes and have on ocassion hung a bent-gate biner from said eye-bolt.

Re: Treadwall Auto-"stop" Question for Treadwall Owners/User

Mike, I have noticed during intense endurance training sessions that the Auto-Stop periodically starts to slip. When the slipping occurrs the hydraulic motor is hot to the touch. As a result, I decided to increase the capacity of the oil reservior (by changing the 1"x6" pipe nipple for a 1.25"x8" pi...
