Re: Need climbing partner Oct 9 to 11th

I'm guessing you do know this is a major event party weekend at the Red. Miguels will be packed by Friday night. You should find tons of climbers in your capability. I'm not local so don't know what bus or cab would get you out the 45 min. drive to the Red. You might check online through the airport.

Re: lost camera at new wall in Muir

! 2014! That must be some massive super double secret probation kind of project going on there. That challenge will certainly bring poachers.

Re: The click up. People seem to love it already.

Got one last month and I"m convinced. Simple and works so much better than the Smart. Watch for these to replace grigri's all over the sport world in months ahead. Feeds so much smoother and you are not tempted to 'grab and hold' like the grigri accidents of late.

Re: lost camera at new wall in Muir

Again about the 'new wall';
is it ready for use yet? What rating routes does it have? Name of wall so as to watch for it posted up in online guidebook in future? Hope to go look at it soon during festival visit weekend IF it's accessable yet. Let us non locals know more if you can.

Re: Gri Gri Test

I don't think the recent grigri incidents are totally related to NO hands on the belay rope. It's nice to know it held for your tests. I think it is more the combination of one hand holding the device loosely when the falls happen and those thinner ropes. Your instinct is to grab and hold on. Thus y...

Re: PGA Championship 2010.

No sweat, no cardio, so it's a pasttime, not a sport. Doing math problems is tedious and requires concentration too , but I'd not call it a sport either., so how is golf different?

Re: PLEASE VOTE FOR VERTICAL WORLD ON THE REEL ROCK FILM TOU

TopRope tuff guys seems to be taking a lead over at MProj. site today. They all love the 'assisted dyno' scene , thus cast their vote. C'mon, how can that even come close to compare to some hairy braided armpits?
