It's most likely where the abdominal internal oblique attaches to the last floating rib. Maybe the attachment to the rib got ripped a bit. If you push on your right side just under the last rib and lean to your left you can feel this muscle contract. I thought this might be a more common injury amon...

It's very painful today. When I feel like I have to sneeze I panic cause it feels like I'm getting stabbed in the side.

injury on right side; pain around lower right rib

I was pulling with my right arm out to the side and twisting my torso in a way that would engage those muscles along the lower right side. I felt a sharp pain in the lower right side about 4 inches above the pointy hip bone. Currently the pain isn't sharp but it hurts and feels really uncomfortable....

misplaced quote but the guy is right on. I honestly do not understand the venom against people that happen to climb routes that require gear and may not have the ability nor the interest to climb 5.12 and harder sport routes. I think sport versus trad has more to do with striving in an obsessed way ...

It just says #9 so they might shut it down where it intersects with FS 23. That would kind of be a bummer ... 90 days.

Here, I'm sprinkling some 'peace dust' on every ones head so we can be nicer to those who climb in the red.

Dude, just one thing that's not entirely clear; do you hang the rainbow rock from the Lords erection or do you insert it into the HUMBOLDT?

I've seen it too many times. If hand tension is applyed to the Climbers end of the GriGri, while trying to catch a fall, enough tension is lost to keep the cam on the device from engaging, Even with a hand on the Break side. You dont have to be touching the device for this to occure. Try in a CONTR...

They work just fine in that they do what they do. They just don't do what cams do. You have a lot more options for placing a cam since it expands and tends to stay in place. Still, in principle, you could lead most stuff with hexes.

I think the steep rock can get wet for different reasons. Here is one way. I was at gung ho wall and it was completely dry. It started raining and suddenly a dense cloud formed in the forest and started moving toward the wall. The cloud simply floated over to the wall and soaked it. The pockets had ...

That rack looks good and you can do most routes. If you were going to add I'd suggest this order, 3.5, 4, 1, 2, 4.5, 5. Even most hand sized cracks vary quite a bit up and down and in and out and you will often be able to find good placements for your orange, 0.5 and 0.75. Also many times you can pl...
