Re: Storage units near The Red

I am acquainted to the guy who owns Safe Storage in Nicholasville and Lexington KY. http://www.safestorage.com/

I've rented a unit from him in the past. All units are kept behind a locked gate, and have a lock on the door. I recommend it.

Re: This might be a good place for Louisville boulderers

Redpoint,

As far as I know, you can register on Mountain Project and will then be able to add areas and routes. If you want to start over and/or use the info I already put up, go for it.

Re: This might be a good place for Louisville boulderers

Redpoint, After seeing some of the boulders in the Knobs,as well as one of your videos online, I put the area up on mountain project a good while ago. If you'd like, I'd be happy to hand the page over to you so you can update it as much as you like. http://www.mountainproject.com/v/knobs-forest-knob...

Re: New Main Trail at Muir Valley

Good post there dustonian, love those quotes. A few more quotes come to mind: "Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike." "One touch of nature makes all the world kin." To ynp1 and anyone who shares his vie...

Re: Looking for partner for Sat Nov 23rd

Hello European Brother, I have gotten lost in Kentucky's valleys before, but by now I am a fairly good navigator. I'd like to meet up and climb. I lead 5.8 trad, 5.9-10 Sport, and will be happy to belay you on some harder stuff so you can experience the best the Red has to offer. I have ropes and a ...

Selling New Evolv Demortos , sz 7.5

My wife tried them on once, were a little too tight. For reference, they are very close to the same size as LaSportiva Tarantula size 6.5. I can meet in Lexington or nearby if you'd like to try them on. New they are selling for $60-$95, my asking price is $40. Reviews and photos found here: http://w...

Re: MV anchor cleaning accident

I will not attempt to answer any, only highlight some of the issues raised… 1. What, if any is/are the climbing partner(s)/belayer’s duty/involvement to assist the rappelling climber? Eyes on the ground? None? 2. What should/can experienced climbers offer less experienced climbers in their vicinity...

Sheltowee Trace Trail Run

If any of you, like me, have decided to divide your time between multiple outdoor sports (thereby dividing your proficiency at each of them by the same factor) and are into trail running, check this out: http://sheltoweechallenge.weebly.com/ 50K and 1/2 marathon options. Distances probably approxima...

Re: Speak Up!

Good description. Yep, instead of doing that traverse left under an overhanging corner, we went pretty much straight up, allowing us a view of the amphitheater for the rest of the climb. I'd like to go back and try out the standard route next time.

Re: Speak Up!

Hmm, perhaps I was on the route. Hard to say, I didn't have the guidebook with me. The online guide says to bear left a few times, and I don't recall ever making any significant leftward motion. Either way, it was a good time.
