Re: Who's line is it?

I thought finding a wall to "grid" bolt was the wet dream of bolters at the RRG???? Don't tell me Pigsteak didn't have a huge boner (well, at least a decent boner) when he saw the "grid" potential at Midnight Surf....

Re: Who's line is it?

Pigsteak said "in no way does Trad hold a superior position". The bottom line. Well said.

Lk Day said "you are taking the gym experience outdoors". Indeed.

Re: Who's line is it?

Hmmmm.. Interesting. Oddly these diametrically opposed points both make sense to me.

Took a whip on the upper flake on Bandolier. Still bugs me that I didn't see the big ass pocket up there.

Re: By the numbers.

Too funny. I had a feeling he meant Gearing. O well. Andrew Wheatley and his dad, Mike Wheatley, are hero's of mine. They both go hard in the paint (thought a basketball analogy would be suitable for these tall fellers). For the record, I enjoy hearing about Andrew Gearings exploits too. No doubt ab...

Re: By the numbers.

My point: people don't want to put in the gym time to see small gains in skill sets so they pretend they found the holy grail and start trad climbing at very low levels. Not sure if I am reading this right. But to me it reads like you think it would be a good idea to bang away for small gains in sk...

Re: Trad Talk... If you're in to that sort of thing...

My question(s) for all you veteran climbers in the RRG are: 1. What route or moment (if any) really stuck with you and got you hooked on trad climbing and why? 2. What is your favorite single pitch and your favorite multi pitch trad climb in the Red River Gorge and why? 1. Parallel cracks (in a fac...

The Reacharound

Since you guys are over there retro bolting anyway..... Check out the direct line to The Reacharound. The line is basically right in line with the little sapling. The upper bits are really quite good and worthy of its own line. Might bump it up to 5.13. Why don't I do it you might ask? Too scared of...
