Re: @crossroads b4 boilerplate

we did the crack just right of banjolero, kinda shared the start. we never put anchors on it though so we never submitted it to the guide. good route though, about 5.8

Re: Severe Flash Flooding in Muir Valley

Not to be an arm chair quarterback but would it be possible to use wired together rocks to instead of concrete to make a low water crossing? might be cheaper and easier than concrete.

Re: The C2C argueing with everyone thread

Dru - you need to watch what you say. Comments like yours above have serious repercussions. Your statement has negative connotations which could lead to people, especially ladies, not wanting to do it. You do not want ladies to think it is a bad thing to do. So lets work on making this a more positi...

Re: Mother Lode Rebolting project update and help thread

would caulking work (+ sand on the outside)?? or, is it important to fill the old hole with something that hardens?? would caulking be any cheaper? plus, the applicator tip on most tubes of caulking would make it really easy to fill an old bolt hole... no one has made the obvious "my hard caulk has...

Re: Need female climbing partner

You might want to mention where you live if you're looking for a climbing partner who is presumably going to need to drive you to the Red from wherever it is you happen to live. good luck.

Re: Swimming options at the Red...

another option is the settling pond by Coal Bank Hollow. the RRGCC actually owns half of it. take the left hairpin at the top of the short hill at the start of Coal Bank and follow that road around until you see the pond and an obvious path down. i've swam there a few times. the bottom is a little m...

Re: Taking fix draws out of twinkie was a mistake

with a decent stick clip and the know how to use it, you don't even need to take a big swing at the end. It would be nice to have a single cleaning draw somewhere on the route though.

Re: Too hot to climb in June?

it all depends on how much sand you have up in it. you can climb any month of the year in the Red. climbing in the summer requires getting up early, climbing in the shade, swimming in the afternoon, and climbing a few grades lower than you're used to (although I've climbed at my limit in mid summer).

Re: Stick Clip & Flying....

i broke my knee at red rocks because i fell before i got to the first (very high) bolt so i would strongly recommend against option d. spending $20 on a stick clip is much better than getting hurt and coming home early.
