Did you find my stick clip?

I left my stick clip on the side of the road at the top of the hill right where you come out of the sore heel parking lot. It is a silver telescoping pole with a super clip on top. The superclip has white tape around it. If you find it, please message me. Thanks.

Re: belaying through both parts of your harness

Triaxial loading primarily is a concern with anchor set ups. The tie in parts of he harness touch when you use them to belay, so it essentially serves as one point. Triaxial loading doesn't happen automatically just because you have tree points--the points have to be separated and pulling in three d...

Re: belaying through both parts of your harness

I think the reason mine doesn't do that is because when you are through the tie in points, the Grigri doesn't hang down at all. Plus, the the DMM biner I have to prevent cross loading,the gri gri stays in the same position at all times. I find belaying off the belay loop slow and awkward with a lot ...

Re: belaying through both parts of your harness

When I belay through the tie in points, the laver is nowhere near the belay loop. The Grigri is horizontal and the lever is facing away from the belay loop.

Re: belaying through both parts of your harness

Thanks! I got a new locking biner with the keeper thing to prevent the gri gri from moving up and down the spine--even though I have never had an issue with cross loading. Spoke with a couple of climber/engineers who said that there is no risk using the tie in points rather than the belay loops, as ...

belaying through both parts of your harness

I am aware that about ten years ago Petzl came out with new recommendations for using the grigri safely and that now they state that it is safest to belay using the belay loop rather than putting the biner through both parts of your harness to avoid cross loading and snapping the biner in half. Of c...

Re: Poop at Roadside

No, the goal of the post was to remind people not to be idiots and ruin access to these places. Same reason I picked up,the poop, so the owner wouldn't see it there. If he hears about it from this post, he will at least know that there are people trying to respect the place. He already knew there we...

Poop at Roadside

Went to Roadside this weekend. Yes, I registered and donated $. Saw a group of people there from Michigan (about 6-7 people) who did not register. The owner talked to them politely about the rules etc. Then, I heard the group discussing where to go next. One guy said, " let's go to Torrent." I said,...
