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.

8/26-27 Accident

Anyone have info on a fall last weekend?
Heard it was at Roadside and a belay issue. 80' and someone is in UK Med recovering.

Thanks for posting! I always like things that make me refocus on safety.
Noticed that his leg hooked the rope during the fall. That's what made him flip.
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.

Re: Lowering on anchors.

[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. It's much faster and very easy. With the long lines and crowds this makes life easier for everyone.[/quote] M...

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!
