Re: Legacy Bolts vs. Power Bolts

Have you run into much of a problem with Powers loosening? I've been using them for a few years and have been fortunate in that regard. I'm not bolting anywhere near the Red. I tend to climb a fair bit in the Red, though, and posted here because I know you folks have plenty of experience with both t...

Re: Legacy Bolts vs. Power Bolts

Thanks for the input, guys.
The lack of hammering is actually one of the things that makes me lean towards Powers. They can feel as solid as a piton before putting a wrench to them.

Legacy Bolts vs. Power Bolts

Am between batches of bolts and am considering possibly switching from 1/2 X 4 3/4 in. SS Power Bolts to Climbtech Legacy bolts. I haven't used Climbtechs but I know that both have been used a fair amount in the Red, so I'm hoping that someone who has used both could offer an opinion on their advant...

Monday, November 7

Would like to get out for a short day on Monday. I can start early but have to be on the road early in the afternoon. I'm interested in getting on some wide stuff but am happy to pick a crag with routes that interest us both and trade belays.

Re: Trad partner

Tradist,

I only care about offwidths but, for the next few weeks, am mostly available weekdays. That any good for you?

Friday August 12

Would like to get out Friday, August 12. I prefer wide cracks but am happy to swap belays on whatever. I'd have to keep the day short - need to be on the road around 2:00, but I can start early. I won't likely see a computer between now and then so, if you're interested, shoot me a text message: (51...

Re: Sneak in some routes in July & Aug?

Temperatures should be ideal.
What sort of climbing are you looking to do?
Do you know the dates you'll be free to climb?

Re: June 8

Yeah, I meant June 8th. Thanks for pointing that out. I think I've editted the post now...

If anyone is looking to climb June 8th, I'm more adept with a belay device than I am with a kayboard. Honest.

June 8

I'm planning to be in the Red and looking for a partner on June 8. I'm interested in offwidths but am willing to trade belays if someone has something else in mind. I have to get on the road early (by 2:00) but am willing to start as early as you like. I won't have email access so shoot me a text at...

Re: Climbing partner

ANy chance you're looking for a partner the SUnday/ Monday of this coming long weekend?
I've been climbing a long time, and am willing to swap belays on a person's project, though I'm really only interested in wide crack climbing.
