If and when I hit that trail, I will see the open gate as a way to thank all the people that work so hard to keep it open; not as a a threat to access. Guess it all depends on your perspective and attitude...

No, Sycophants! I wasn't saying anything about rick. I was saying that about ynp and his arrogant statement about "purity". As far as understanding about what the word condesending means. Your saying I don't know what the word means is very condesending. I'll put my reading comprehension and word s...

I don't think there is anything wrong with free soloing... If a climber wants to do it, then they should. It's a free country - can't argue. But there are serious consequences some of these "climbers" don't seem to consider before assuming the risk. First, to the friends and family (including in th...

What were the rules on ice down at Muir? I seem to recall that someone was allowed to top rope once, and leading was completely banned. Maybe Rick or Liz can give us a heads up on their rules/conditions/etc with regard to ice in the valley?

I agree with mr point! I have recently taken a year off because of old fart elbow tendons and haven't climbed anything in that time to speak of. I usually was a pretty fair 10 climber but was thinking of projecting skeletor upon my return because 14's are just four numbers more than ten. Do you thi...

Redpoint, what gym do you go to? I would love to take a shot at your 11. I just sent my first gym 5.9+ last week. Give me the scoop, man. I'm ready to push these grades even higher.
