Re: Military Trail Work 12/10/2011

I am riding down with Dustin. Sorry, I know it's late for the head count.

Who needs to train when you can afford to spend your whole life at the best venues in the world?

Hmm... except there are 5.11s in Saxony that were put up in the 1920s and Alex Huber did 5.15 in the mid-90s.

Re: PDs at Lode

I would like to address a misconception that seems to be common here: PDs are not the global norm. I lived and climbed in Europe for over two years, and came across very, very few of them. Leave your draws (aluminum, steel, whatever) on a popular 7c in Ceuse and if they are hanging from the top anch...

Re: TNB is about us this week.

If I hear some magazine editor call the red the best climbing in the States one more time, I'm gonna spit.

Re: How to apply Fixed gear in the Red

It is misguided at best to pursue a resolution to this issue based on a poll or vote. I am afraid that if the RRG ethic is going to be based on the popular vote then more closures and restrictions are to follow. To me safety, first, and then Leave No Trace should be the primary considerations. Gene...

Re: How to apply Fixed gear in the Red

No way dude this shit is BORING! True, but slightly more relevant to climbing in the Red than trading personal insults. Dude. STFU. We don't care about you, or your opinion. This thread if fucking useless, get used to it. Your poll is shortsighted at best. So shut up. Jesus fucking Christ. Consider...

Re: How to apply Fixed gear in the Red

Remember that the people voting here do not represent the totality of climbers at the red, so we can't use this voting as a source of legitimacy for any group. True, but do you have a better idea for getting a concensus? If we call a meeting and advertise the meeting, lots of people that climb in t...

Re: How to apply Fixed gear in the Red

So far it seems apparent. As of right now 63% of the people that voted in the other thread feel that stripping the draws from the lode was a BAD idea. That's a clear majority. And it seems so far on this thread that the majority (70% out of only 10 voters so far), feels that we need to equip routes...
