Re: backpacking/climbing in South America

I did two amazing backpacking trips down there a few years ago--one out of El Chalten and one in Torres del Paine. Shoot me a PM and I'll be glad to share more information.

Re: Boulder, CO

Clear Creek Canyon is definitely worth checking out. It's very close to Denver, and not far at all from Boulder. Wall of Justice is a good spot with several routes in the grades you're looking for. There are some really steep climbs if you want to be reminded of home! Slammer is a super fun 12b that...

Recreational Use Statutes

The issue of recreational use statutes has popped up again, this time in the Muir Valley thread. In order to avoid further derailing that thread with this ridiculously long post, I thought I’d start a new thread. When we start to talk about fundraising for PMRP and Muir, people often ask why the Coa...

Re: Herd Mentality

I haven't tried it. I'll try next time I'm around. If I can send it in a day or two, downgrade it! (After giving me a few days to spray, of course.)

Re: Top Roping at the Red?

There are very few climbs at the Red where you can set up a top rope without someone leading the climb. If no one in your group can lead, I'd suggest hiring a guide. Check out http://www.redriveroutdoors.com.

Lost GriGri at Lode

Hi. I lost my GriGri at the lode a week or two ago. It's the original GriGri, it's red, with a gridlock biner and a pair of gloves clipped to it. Rohr is scratched on the back of the GriGri. I heard from folks climbing there the next day that someone picked it up with the intention of dropping it of...

Rumor has it that a GriGri 2 was turned into Miguels recently, so check there!

Re: ACCESS TO ROADSIDE - closed unttil further notice

Re: ACCESS TO ROADSIDE - closed unttil further notice

Why not charge to climb in the PMRP or muir? If the landowner charges for access to the land, then the landowner has a legal duty to keep the land safe. If the landowner allows access for recreational purposes without charging a fee, the landowner is protected from legal liability. Kentucky, like a...

Re: Breakins 2011

don't take a nice car to the Grey's Branch trailhead for the time being If your choice is between a nice car and a truck/suv/van with decent clearance, I'd say take the nice car to Gray's Arch (i.e., Military & Left Flank parking area). To chop a cat you have to get under the car, so it's much easi...

Re: Guides at Military today

is it legal to guide on FS land? Technically you're supposed to have a special use permit to engage in for-profit guiding on Forest Service land (36 CFR 251.50). I'm sure this rule is violated all the time and I doubt many of us care a if a guide takes a couple people out without the proper permit....

I picked up a black women's jacket at the 10 wall at Roadside yesterday evening. It's at the counter at Miguel's if it's yours.

Go for it! You can definitely do it. 3 months sounds about right. I've followed Hal Higdon's plans for the 2 marathons I've run. His half marathon plan is 12 weeks. He has you run 4 times the first week: two 3m runs, one 2m run, and one 4m run. So you'd need to be at a point where 3 or 4 miles doesn...
