Don't listen to lilgilby, total chuffer. Once witnessed him get on another person's shoulders to stick clip a couple weeks back. Most of us just solo around these parts.

Anyone have info on a fall last weekend?

Re: BAD BELAY

Thanks for posting! I always like things that make me refocus on safety.

Glad he didn't wack his noggin!

Re: Incident at Drive By Krag

Just read it yesterday.
I had written one into unbelayvable a year ago about a girl who clipped direct to the anchor from her gear loop.

[quote=" And really the BEST way to clean an anchor is to ask the group that's going after you if you can use 2 of their draws and just swap them out at the anchor and lower from their gear.

Re: Gear

I recommend the guys at KRAG for guide service.. They're great!

If you decide not to use a guide service, you better get a guide book and pick a location with plenty of climbs in the range you want.

Good luck!
Emphasis on safety!
