Re: Lost shoes at Courtesy Wall

Thank you so much! I sent you a text message. If you could please drop them off at the gear shop at Miquel's before Sat that would be really great. I have a friend climbing that day and he could pick them up for me. Email me your address and I'll send you something for your trouble. Thanks again, Jack

Lost shoes at Courtesy Wall

I accidentally left my size 41 Sportiva Miura VS shoes at the Courtesy Wall yesterday (Sat Oct 29th). :( They are probably near the base of "Welcomed Guest" or maybe over by "Tweaked Unit." If anybody has them or knows somebody that was climbing in that area yesterday, I would really appreciate it! ...

Is it just me or is it incredibly irresponsible that Bachar didn't have health insurance at the time of his unfortunate car crash... ESPECIALLY doing what he does for a living?? Based on the description of his injuries, I wouldn't be surprised if he has a $40,000 hospital bill... That said, I sincer...

MM- I think he may have downclimbed The Rostrum without a rope... I don't think JB has soloed Astroman... Just Croft and Potter... I may be wrong...

...this isn't a goddamned public playground. You may die. If you don't like it don't climb. Though a bit harsh, I agree. For the first time ever (20 years), I'm becoming a little embarassed to call myself a "sport climber." Some of the current thought around here has become laughable... So-called "...

I know it doesn't ordinarily, but could you top-out 'L'isle au Ciel' at Funkrock (I can't remember the anchor)?? That would be a GREAT free solo (and relatively reasonable). 'No Place Like Home' would be really wild.... a few too many moves there on the arete that aren't totally "solid."

Free Solo

Things have been pretty slow on the message board lately.... I've been thinking a lot about Michael Reardon's free soloing exploits in Cali... first try solo of Romantic Warrior in the Needles... I actually climbed (most of) that route (with many falls) back in 2000... and I can't begin to explain t...

Thats some brilliant reasoning. So I guess anyone having any business on 'No Place Like Home' would not be bothered by soloing any 40 foot route, 5.6 or under, with a horrible landing, and suspect holds for the last 10 feet. Hmmmm... yeah, I guess that's what I'm saying... along with most of the ot...

Yeah, I knew Lurkist bolted The Legend. I did not know he added the sub-anchor (which evidently he didn't)....

Don't get too fumed, Spragwa. Lurk and I are friends.

NO WAY can you call a route "sent" if you bail at a sub-set of anchors. They all ought to be removed. And the fact that these sub-anchors on "The Legend" were placed for "training" purposes is even more ridiculous and offensive. The first (original) set of anchors on BOHICA would've been gone a long...
