Re: Dreaming

Kalymnos > Geyikbayiri, at least based on hearing a lot about the former and climbing a couple of days at the latter. The climbing is pretty fun but it is rather polished, at least the routes I tried. Kalymnos seems to have a more complete package with the whole island paradise aspect vs. Geyikbayi...

Re: Dreaming

I'd love to get to kalymnos, turkey, spain,and france this year Kalymnos and Turkey were on the radar. Looked amazing from what I saw of Tom's trip, and Narc's stuff looked good too!

Re: Fixed Gear

On the topic of fixed lines though, I try and strictly avoid jugging lines without a "sub-anchor" that I can see from the ground (bolt or good piece of gear near the top). One of the most dangerous and unnecessary things you can do IMO is jug an old fixed rope that you can't see from bottom to top....

Re: Mental Recovery

This past April I was sport climbing in the Red when I heard a loud pop in my ankle. I wasn't doing anything crazy, just doing the normal stand-up-on-a-foothold move I've done thousands of times on a sport route in the Red. I've done countless "more dangerous" things like trad climbing, bouldering ...

Re: Mental Recovery

Before I get to my response, let me preface this by saying that bouldering is not something to be avoided simply out of fear of injury. Sure, bouldering can be dangerous. Shit happens. But shit can happen during other types of climbing as well. Case in point: This past April I was sport climbing in ...

Re: Media frenzy!!

Except that climbingnarc posted that on Thursday and this thread got started on Tuesday... How do I know that climbingnarc didn't make that post because of reading this thread... I'm still skeptical! FWIW I heard it from multiple "sources" prior to this post coming to in existence. At least one of ...

Re: Climbing over X-Mas Break

Since my discussions with Ian were the impetus for this post let me clarify/add a few criteria: - No camping - Approach it from the perspective that climbing is not the main focus of the trip but rather one thing out of many that could be done. - We are open to international destinations as well Por...

Re: Emerald City/Global Village Wildfire

Apparently a couple of dudes were scavenging for metal in the old quarry off of Glencairn using acetylene torches and it got out of hand (they bailed of course instead of doing something about it). The fire burned all the way up the hillside and around the back side of the cabin you can see from 11...

Re: Taste the Rainbow...

Maybe we could raise funds to install timers next to the permadraws that will send an electrical charge down the route when your time is up??
