Parks review anchor ban nationwide

The National Park Service is reviewing their policy on fixed anchors nationwide (link here.) I don't believe that this will affect current fixed anchor bans in the Clifty Wilderness, but some of you all might know better.

Re: Climbing Partner AND Significant Other?

You lucky sonofabitch! :D Also, you may want to start training now, lest you be cuckolded by a passing pro-climber. ;-)

Re: Sharp draw on Phantasia

I removed it and replaced it with an Omega. Later I found out who the Omega belonged to and got it back to them. I also realized that only one of the biners on the removed draw was sharp, and so I ended up putting it back on and made it so the non-sharp side was used for the rope biner. I made a to...

Sharp draw on Phantasia

Over the course of the year, I replaced a few bad perma draws and a few bad anchors, but somehow forgot to replace the worst draw I saw all year before I left. Due to the > shape of the route, it is not the first draw that receives the brunt of the wear and tear, but the first roof draw (I think it'...

Southern Indiana sandstone

A year or so ago (when I was last back in the midwest) I started this thread: http://www.redriverclimbing.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=11720 The area described was Salt Shake Rock, and has a history of climbing. It's solid, mostly clean, and a one minute walk from the road. That got me wondering if ther...

Re: SoIN bouldering - FOUND

So JR, I'm back in Indiana again for a little while and I was wondering if you've ever checked out Deer Creek in the Hoosier National Forest. I ask because of page of this report on cliff ecology in the (climbing legal) Hoosier National Forest: https://www.ideals.illinois.edu/bitstream/handle/2142/1...

Mulching toilets are indeed the way to go--they work really well at Smith Rock, for example.

Re: Middle Small Wall?? Does it exist??

My god, man--you spent half a day looking for the trail? Last summer, there was no trail, but the wall could be glimpsed from the side of the road. A five minute bush bash directly uphill will take you to the base of the wall, where you can find the routes to the right or left from the description i...

It's almost an hour from Louisville, so that sounds about right. Access to the area above is unknown at present (haven't been able to visit the Perry County Courthouse yet), but appears to be on Hoosier National Forest land. If so, climbing there is just fine. Regardless, it's remote and unlikely to...

Lead 12s, sport (sometimes trad) Dog 13s pitifully Happy climbing anything, though. Even happier developing, but sadly left my hardware and drill in New Zealand. Found ple...

SoIN bouldering - FOUND

I'm sure a lot of people have visited Hemlock Cliffs, only to be disheartened by the clammy, mossy choss there. However, there is hope. Nearby, there's easily accessible bouldering (and short routes if you're keen) on steep, solid sandstone. There's doubtless much more in the area, but I haven't had...
