Re: Black Diamond

BD started moving its manufacturing to China back in 2006, first to a factory in Zhuhai. Since then, the move overseas has continued (Chinese cams, woohoo!). It's not really all that surprising to hear about quality control issues/lack of oversight. Companies move to china to save money, not to impr...

Re: red taging a PJ you didnt bolt

It seems that the red tag in question was put there to warn others of potential danger (holds flying off, wet glue, bolts being moved) etc. However, It serves the same purpose as when a bolter red tags a route to tell others "STAY OFF TILL I SEND".

Then I bet you head to the gym and show everyone up on their projects, huh? Showoff! So about how many 1/4 miles do YOU run during all this? I'm guessing it would require a half-day pass for me to complete all that, probably 5-6 total miles of running. If you want a partner sometime hit me up, I wo...
