Re: Roadside for sale?

This thread is an embarrassment. Many of you should be ashamed, especially the OP.

Now back to remembering why I'll never climb in the gorge again.

Re: The crowds are not going away... So what do we do?

All good until the beard part and then "something delicate like knitting or Mtn. Biking??" Really? Mtn. Biking? Let me take you Mtn. Biking, I'll even let you use one of my rigs and we'll see how delicate you think it is. Last time I checked even pigsteak had to wipe off his feet before starting a ...

Re: Question for the CC

Clevis, I doubt if you were as rankled as I was in having my professional capability challenged yet again. You are the only person on the planet that does so with such comfort and it does not sit well with me when anyone does it. Not that anyone else ever does. Ideas are ideas and generally worth di...

Re: Question for the CC

...... Its like what Charlie said about changing the charter to allow for voting and all of the paperwork that it entailed. Too much work. But if he designated authority and spread the work load among a few people who were so inclined then it would be a cinch. A cinch? Obviously you know much more ...

Re: Question for the CC

It's really sort of the standard for this type of org. Do we vote for BOD members on Access fund, Sierra Club, IMBA, or countless others? As Sax mentions, it was created by people much smarter than us over a decade ago. Could it be changed, perhaps? We could develop standards for voting members and ...

Re: How unsafe is climbing?

Admittedly I haven't been out much lately but the story has really changed a lot. Every single time I have been out the last couple years I have seen someone royally screwing it up, with potentially deadly consequences. There are many more people now and fewer of them are trained properly. It's alwa...

Re: Military Wall - Closed Routes

Heh. I just think it's funny. The new Charlie is now the old Charlie and I know at least I missed him.

Batten down the hatches kids. I may even start climbing again.

Re: Military Wall - Closed Routes

Here's the best part about it. I'm no longer president, I don't have to watch my mouth. :D I can tell anyone I want to fuck off as much as I want and I can mean every word of it. The years of justifying my actions to everyone with an opinion and keeping my mouth shut have festered long enough. I am ...

Re: Military Wall - Closed Routes

..... It is getting a bit old to have all these areas closed, and everyone preaching "patience", and then saying stuff is happening behind the scenes, then years and years go by and the same tired line is thrown out to keep the climbers from frothing at the mouth. To me, an honest answer of 'X,Y, a...

Damn dude. Losing that tag breaks my heart.

These people really should know how low class they are.
