Re: Ambulance at RS sat night.

I've an idea, though the brunt of the work would have to be done by select few. I've no idea on how financing could work. As many climbing videos as there are out there, I think one could be produced [by the few. e.g., Spencer, BigUP] that takes high profile climbers (I say that only because the mas...

Re: Question for the CC

Why are the board members not directly elected by climbers? This is a straight question that deserves a straight, simple, answer. Here it is - RRGCC Board members are not directly elected by climbers because the original founders of the RRGCC chose to use the "non-membership" model in setting up th...

Re: Poop on trail at Phantasia

On Saturday, came across a pile of poop with a couple of rocks (insufficiently covering it) unburied by the ledge/tree behind Mailbox at Long Wall. ~3' from where the trail to the other routes (B3, etc) goes.

Re: This Friday and Saturday

I can't get down to the Red this weekend or I'd climb with Cathy. She's a laid back, fun, and safe climbing partner and I encourage someone else to step up!

Which vipers? The pre-'07 gray ones or the newer orange ones? Which heads do you have on them? What picks?

Catholes ...Select an inconspicuous site where other people will be unlikely to walk or camp. ... If camping in the area for more than one night, or if camping with a large group, cathole sites should be widely dispersed. i think this is the crux of the problem. there are just too many climbers in ...

Dragons also have extend-able slings. I guess BD tried this back in the day, but they got some funny nylon-against-nylon friction, so they went with the dog bone-on-a-biner design. DMM solved the friction problem by threading the extend-able sling through two holes. If the gear takes a fall in eith...

maps?

The iTouch/iPhone guidebook app is cool 'n all (not that I own either device) but where did the links to the maps go? I thought those were useful.

Which category is it under? $5K? $25K? $50K? I'm guessing not $250K but if it were that could fund an awesome playground!

Project number?

I've never heard it called a kamikaze knot. Sheep shank. It's a good knot to know. It can also be used to isolate part of a damaged rope. Just for the sake of my curiosity, why would someone use a sheep shank to isolate a damaged part of rope instead of using an alpine butterfly? Any advantages/dis...

I remember running into and bouldering with John Sherman at LRC a few years ago. He always wears his helmet, even on V-easy -- smart man!
