What exactly is the benefit of webbing on bolted anchors? It has its place when it comes to slinging trees but seems like an unnecessary weak link next to bolt hangers and quicklinks- It slowly rots off the hardware and discourages clipping in directly to the bolts. Is there any reason not to re-eq...

Good for light treks or even 3-day excursions in any weather conditions. Easily fits needed gear for we...

cut the tat, replace it with new. start carrying a knife and webbing. A steel link helps too... It's come in handy for me. If you forget any of that stuff, backup the anchor point/rap ring and put the fattest person on rap/lower with as much gear as possible. Bounce test. If the last person down fe...

True dmw, but at least in the park you have fresh air and sunshine from time to time... And occasionally, I am that desperate.

I made the comment on there about the helmet... I just wasn't sure where to start. Did not look like the greatest belay, legs mixed with rope, spinning upside down fall with no helmet... I prefer a helmet at all times even though I hate wearing them... It's just another reassurance I like to have. I...

At some point, I will run out of things to break and tear. At that point, I will be a tangled mess of metal, plastic, tissue and donor parts. I will still require beer.

I like Old Stye, PBR, and Corona. Lucky for you, I'm a cheap drunk.

Sloopy,

So basically, what you're saying is... the next time we go climbing, you're buying me beer? I'll let the fellas know that you're good for a couple of six-packs. Mind you, you can reply with whatever you want, but all I can hear is you saying "I will buy you free beer".
