Amen!

We currently have a dog issue beginning to brew at my regular crag. Finding dogcrap right at the belay area for a climb is absolutely uncalled for. There is also a quiet zone (Clearly listed in the guide book) where people are supposed to be extra quiet as to not disturb the land owners above the cl...

How about just spending some time developing the hundreds of possibilities that still exist in between all the other existing routes. As I walk along the cliffs there are so many places where you would think a route could be. I suppose you could simply toprope anywhere you want which opens up any li...

Ha.... Interesting you should say that!

I just bought my first passive gear this past weekend. I played around with it at ground level working on placements and multidirectional anchors. Looking forward to my first trad lead real soon.

Wasn't a big fan of bouldering untill my outside experiences

When I started at the gym bouldering the easy problems was a great option to learn the ropes. Didn't take long to get tired of the 10' walls though and started spending more time on routes. As I got better I started mixing up the day with routes and problems. I still didn't care for bouldering, but ...

LOL!! Hey, when I'm 6'1" and can't reach it without doing a smear dyno........uhh.... yeah that's a bit reachy. Forget to mention we climbed Devil's Standtable Sunday. That's a pretty cool place. We need to go back and do a couple more lines up that thing. We ended up slinging the back side of the t...

Just an idea

I'm curious about several things. What are the odds of climbers actually privately owning portions of land around the climbing areas. Not the bluffs themselves, they would all be co-owned, but I'm talking about the land surrounding the crags. If climbers had a chance to own some land and not just do...

Anyone going?

Yep, already know about many of the SoIL spots. Definately going to be there a lot this summer. Many of the areas in SoIL are within 100 miles from me. I was just hoping by chance there was something in Indiana within maybe 50 miles. I heard Hindostan Falls has some climbing and it's 86 miles. Dawso...
