Re: Climbing partner 15th june -17th june 2018

Re: RRG Whipper videos on Rock and Ice website

Did not watch 'cleaning' video to clarify. Read title and was disturbed; and here I am trolling the internet... I have had my share of climbing fails/lessons learned...I caution others to think about which ones they share on the World Wide Web.

RRG Whipper videos on Rock and Ice website

RRG climbers,

Please stop posting whipper videos to Rock and Ice. Taking a whipper on a 5.6 trad route, or while cleaning does not make you cool; you should be embarrassed and ashamed...
Do not post these online; or at least don't claim to be a climber of the gorge.

Thanks
proud RRG climber.

Buddy checks, a thing of the past?

In the last 6 months or so, I have climbed with a half dozen or so new partners, both indoor and outdoor, different walks of life, and various skill level ... None of them seem to have the habit of doing a redundant check on their own knot/belay system, or of their partner. Nothing verbal, visual, o...

B] may bring up the discussion w/out the ' i'm telling you what to do/better than you' attitude. C] reject th...
