Don't toprope or lower from anchors!!!

Well, I know a lot of you lazy bastards are set in your ways of doing things... your way... because you know best. And why the hell should you listen to some 22 year old that is telling you lowering off of anchors is unethical. Fine, don't listen to me... then listen to the people who BUILD the hard...

Sounds like an interesting book. What is the reasoning behind putting loctite on quicklinks? I know alot of people do this, then again alot of people don't. If they are wrench tight then they are not coming loose... on the flip side, if someone was smart enough to bring an open end wrench to steal t...

Man, this is crazy! Now there are people questioning the ones who top rope "through their draws" and people who think that top roping in some respect is different from lowering off anchors ? If anything, a top rope set-up through the anchors will bring more damage to the anchors when the climber wei...

Back in '01 he was conducting research on climber tourism in Slade; how much money climbers brought into the area. He use to run the climbing section of the KY Tourism...

This discussion is about ethics and finding out who is and isn't lazy. It's not a factor that you rap or lower off of anchors. It is a factor that there are people who take the time to rappel, rather than sit on their untie-from-the-rope-phobic asses and lower off of anchors... steep routes omitted....

I have taken newbies climbing and I just treat it as a no fall situation. Climbing guides do it every day. Personally, I've never heard of a "no fall situation" but taken the information you've just given me I should be able to extract some sort of a defination from The American Alpine Club or the ...

All routes should have sacrificial quick links or rings so you can either rap or lower. Fact is, all routes don't. Even if they did, it is mighty bold to be calling $5 to $15 worth of gear, per route, sacrificial. You planning on replacing it when it does wear out? If anyone is questioning the fact...

Hans Florine is coming to Evansville on February 27th & 28th (seriously, http://le-mank.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=35 ), I'm sure he has a stash of old rusty pitons in his trunk. Either way, it is going to be cool kickin the shit with the worlds fastest climber. http://le-mank.com/uploads/...
