Re: Funk Rock City Rebolt Raffle

I threw my hat in the ring for some chances... I'm torn between telling more people to get in on the fun to help Jeff versus padding my chances to win these sweet prizes. ;) I'm also down to help out; and I would love to get out there to offer a belay, haul some gear up to the crag, and I would love...

Re: Black Diamond

I have had nothing but excellent service from BD with many, many interactions... both working for a dealer and as a private consumer. Sorry to hear you had problems Clevis. When they have made mistakes in the past, they were rectified very quickly. Hope things work out for you. Honestly, I don't kno...

at the least it (the not responsible argument) demonstrates a lack of concern. to dismiss the opportunity to elevate awareness, emphasize responsibility, contribute to a climbing culture of preventative measures... 2core.. my point in the 6 ft. note was an attempt to elicit clarity and get the fact...

i think lena chita makes some points worth noting. some spotty replies are cause for continuing concern for me. i'd want to check, but the rocks ate the base of BB prolly don't extend out much past six feet, which is where the ground turns mostly smooth and flat. and i think it's fine to make judge...

It is a missed opportunity ... to touch these beginners with posters or pamphlets and information as to what to expect when they venture outdoors. This has already has been done. It is called ClimbSmart that was developed by the Outdoor Industry Association and is supported by the Climbing Wall Ass...

I take a small exception with blaming gyms/gym owners for the scores of unprepared climbers that go outside... It's not their job, and opens them up to greater liabilities should they engage in training and instruction for the outdoors (that is why God created AMGA guides). Their duty and obligation...

I've been meaning to post about the "climber" I saw at Roadside .10 wall awhile back... one guy had forgotten to bring his harness so he fashioned one out of a single dyneema sling and used quickdraws as leg loops... He was belaying with that contraption; didn't see him lead with it. Interesting to ...
