Re: Muir Valley - 2012 Fundraising and Awareness

It's fine to ask for donations, but I'm not surprised by the results, or lack thereof. To really make a dent, it'll take a major effort at fundraising in some way.

Re: Muir Valley - 2012 Fundraising and Awareness

The Beanfest was the original climbing party that helped generate the PBC. I can't find any current info on the PBC, so I guess it finally died after what I think was a 20+ year run. If something like this were attempted for MV, I'd recommend having both a fun section along the lines of the "Clip an...

Re: Theft of route hardware at Muir

Jesus H. Christ... I suggest we use water boarding when they're caught. It's legal now...

Stainless steel glue-ins with internal compartments of poison gas so if they're cut off, the perpetrator is quickly and mercifully killed. That's the future of bolting.

Re: Muir Valley - 2012 Fundraising and Awareness

Correction- Reading the newspaper clipping, I can see that it was originally the Central Az. BC and I guess it became the PBC later. It began with a group of us just all showing up at the same time and competing with each other. It became an official comp with an entry fee, judges, prizes, etc. a fe...

Re: Muir Valley - 2012 Fundraising and Awareness

Comps are a great way to raise cash. I was at the first 3 Phoenix Bouldering Competitions in Phoenix, Az. From very humble beginnings in 1982, long before climbing was mainstream, it grew into a monster- drawing top talent, having huge prizes and a very large field of thousands of participants, and ...

Re: ReBolting the Mother Lode

"Agreed, and there will be a concerted effort for folks to rebolt the routes they are most familiar with (which will become more of an issue on the harder stuff!) to keep things as safe and flow-y as possible. As an example, the third bolt (above the little pinchy sloper crux) on KMITJ is close to g...

Re: ReBolting the Mother Lode

:D I love the long view, the long look ahead, the long look back, and the big picture. Thanks for proposing this! You can count me in. I guess I've probably placed over a hundred mechanical bolts in limestone and granite and close to 20 in the sandstone of the Red (which may have to come out. :( I'v...

Re: ACCESS TO ROADSIDE - closed unttil further notice

I am responsible for the route right of Way Up Yonder. My name is Mike Cook and I did my first rock climb in Red River Gorge in 1976, or thereabouts. I obtained permission from John and Grant to bolt the route prior to doing anything. There was some miscommunication between us, but I did get permiss...

Bonzo Anchors

I did this route a couple years ago. I don't really remember the anchor all that well (the route, in fall colors, was Awesome, and I remember that alright). We got down O.K, obviously. But I think I backed up the anchor for my second and went down on what was there. I know I didn't leave no pieces n...
