Re: Project Draws: How Long is Too Long?

I agree with you Rob. I think leaving your draws up on a route is your choice. I would like to see folks just hang them the day they came out and take them down the same day. That probably won't happen, so my personal practice will be to clean your draws and leave them on the anchor (not the base) s...

Re: Project Draws: How Long is Too Long?

How about no project draws. I don't want to climb on anyone else's gear. I would prefer to climb on my own draws. Why can't we put up and take down our draws each day?

Re: PDs at Lode

Good discussion. Dario spoke wisely when he said that if nothing else this is spurring a needed discussion. But what is the issue? Is it pds? I don't think so.

Re: property for sale

$5000 per acre? Have you checked comps in the neighborhood? You have Tryle Tutt as a neighbor about 1/2 mile back towards Koops. How long has this been on the market?

Re: More dropped climbers

The root cause of both of these problems is inexperience and culture that has lost respect for belaying and falling. Steve Hong in a recent interview talked about how he had to work at loosing his trepidation of falling that was instilled early in his career through trad climbing. He contrasted that...
