Accident tally??

It's mid March and we are at three accidents so far...that I know of. Any stat minded people out there want to start a basic excel spreadsheet and keep track of accidents this year. Track things like, major contributing factors(ie bad belay), minor contributing factors(barking dogs and crying childr...

Re: Rock and Ice March issue

Ahh piggie finally seeing the light...really that is awesome. You will find a whole new perspective and motivation when you return to climbing...it won't own you anymore. Yet as KD said, us compulsive rec types often find new additions. I did 16 adventure races last year....

Re: Bad belay or just really good at lowering?

"Dude...you are heavier than I thought" ~ yeah that was all about weight difference. Pigsteak - he wasn't one hand spotting - he was praying for him...he needed it. This was a beautiful video! Perfectly answers the question, "how can we be having so many accidents at the red". It's like video eviden...

Re: Hurt Knee

Had a sports med doc look at it about 4 weeks ago. Did an MRI to confirm MCL sprain and rule out ACL tear. No ACL tear, type 2 MCL sprain. I am in a brace for another 4 weeks plus twice a week PT. Had a follow up with doc this morning - the MCL is still loose, needs more time to heal and tighten up ...

Yep the "Barely on, barely sticking the move. Not solidly pulling through, but barely, barely on will make the difference"... is the big take home for me.

Re: 2010 Season

10 - For the 2010 Adventure Race season - numerous 10top finishes in both solo and team events. Did my fist 24hr event and won $280.00 doing it. Met some new friends and learn a lot more navigational skills. 4 for the 2010 climbing season, but I did bolt my first climb so that was cool. My 10 season...

Re: A better way to report bad bolts

It's a bad precedent/slippery slope this tread in trying to protect newbies from themselves. Yeah it sucks that almost every weekend a beginner/inexperienced/newbie climber at the Red ends up in the hospital. Yet the push should be in how the better educate and train them, not to have the fixed gear...

Re: A better way to report bad bolts

It would help if everyone understands what constitutes a "bad bolt". Sending Team Suck on a mission to fix something that only needed a couple of cranks of a wrench....well sucks. Plus fixing/replacing bad bolts should be the responsibility of every climber not just Team Suck. Yes there should be a ...

Re: When do draws left on a warmup become booty?

I once got two draws off Creep Show - they were mid route - I never though twice about them being anything but Booty! But I will say that I never really used them because I never trust booty gear that I don't know the history of.

Re: Ambulance at RS sat night.

only thing I learn is to stick to the super secret crags and to avoid climbing on the weekends for as long as I can.

Re: When do draws left on a warmup become booty?

For fun, or at least my amusement, can you explain, "I left them there as directionals for my climbing partner who was toproping the line."? Did you also leave the rope hanging? Oh and please leave all draws on any route regardless of the grade, we are slowly working on fixing the entire Red with pe...

Re: My New Chipped Proj-get on it

Yes pigsteak you can go ahead and chip all those hold-less routes you bolted, you don't need mine or Bill Ramsey's permission. Just be sure you chip those routes down to at least 12b. Any climbing short of free soloing on-sight is contrived. Chipping, gluing, "comfortizing", drilling bolts,adding fi...
