Re: PDs at Lode

Michelle, For the record and in front of every nobsniffing choad chuffer (or whatever Dustin said) I want you to know that I really don't want your draws. I have my own. If I want draws I will go buy new ones. Please, do not loose another night of sleep or have another moment of angst worrying that ...

Re: Community Meeting - Nov 9th

the perma draws coated in plastic were the best. they were so stiff and rigid. you could grab the perma draws and choke up on them and pull into it.

Re: PDs at Lode

all current problems stem from the increasing climbing population at the cliff. this is directly related to promotion of the great climbing at the red river gorge through: rrgcc, fundraisers, sponsors, mass media (guidebooks, magazines, videos, etc.), and word of mouth. wouldn't the climbing commun...

Re: PDs at Lode

The over arching issue is climbers behavior. If everyone who climbed in the Red had climbed initially with an experienced mentor and came to the cliff with the behavioral expectations of the climbing community already established, I think we could all agree that many of the accidents, overcrowding, ...

Re: Long Wall Ambo

It is only a matter of time before there is another fatality in the Red. It will likely be a head injury. We can't stop it. We could try to educate by getting a message out to the masses, but there is no mechanism to mentor every gym climber coming out.

Re: Project Draws: How Long is Too Long?

I think that if the solution is a binary one, and the etiquette bcomes one where no draws are left over night, then there will be few problems with people having gear taken, b/c they won't be leaving it. What I mean is if you know when you leave your draws up they might not be there when you come ba...

Re: PDs at Lode

yep, a compromise. A number of routes that can be monitored and maintained.
btw, I was the only choadnibbler at the meeting, and it was a reasonable discourse. You all should have come.

Re: Project Draws: How Long is Too Long?

Alright, you got me. I may be guilty of a type 1 error (the result we got is not infact due to the change we made, but due to randomness.) I don't know for sure, but my hypothesis is that people make crag decisions based on how facilitated the climbing is, i.e. that PD make it easy, low commitment, ...

Re: Project Draws: How Long is Too Long?

I think the "crew" has tried to articulate their reasons. Whatever motivated them, unilaterally taking them down has its own unintended consequence. It has really polarized the community and clearly become divisive. That is too bad. That said, I think if we had seen the future prior to putting them ...

Re: Project Draws: How Long is Too Long?

No, the UTW doesn't need or require fixed gear. As Toy said, none of the routes at the Lode were created with the thought of fixed gear. Yes, PD were placed to remove the hazard of sharp gear and hopefully prevent a disaster, but ( I said this then) that gear needs to monitored too, and we have real...
