Scaphoid fractures can be bad. It's blood supply is more complicated than most bones and it has a much higher rate of non-union (i.e. non-healing) than most other fractures. We normally say 6 weeks for most fractures, but this one can take longer and often needs a trip to the OR to pin it back in pl...

I want a woody in my garage

So I've been thinking about building my own little bouldering wall in my garage since the nearest gym is almost an hour away and rock is much farther. Would it even be worth the effort if I can only go about 8' high? How big are home walls usually?

RRG climber in Stone Nudes

I was flipping through my new Stone Nudes calendar and got a bit of a shock. Does anybody think July looks eerily familiar?

Gear Storage

Hi all. Long time, no see. I know it's tacky to show up and ask a question, but here goes. We moved into a smaller house and my camping/climbing gear is taking up most of my new office. The camping gear will probably get stored in the attic but I'm wondering about the climbing stuff. Anybody have an...

I agree with the bolo part. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it either.

But you can do very short rapells with a single rope, you just divide the rope into thirds. You rapell on 2 of them and the third is tied to the biner. (picture 2)
