Re: Drill question

I don't have the compact, but I got my drill at CPO Bosch as well. I think it was right at $300.

Does this mean you climbed a 5.12 like Immaculate Deception or Espresso or you crush Cell Block and Jesus Wept but can't muster the skills to get up a 12a in the PMRP?

Re: What is your least favorite sport crag?

BTW, you know what crag is terrible but worth one trip is the Unlode. Go there when you are warming up for the Lode to get the points. Make sure you can send all the routes in one trip. You do not want to go back there again. The breaky routes in the front and the sandy routes in the back. Rad.

Re: What is your least favorite sport crag?

You got me thinking about Tong Shing, I believe I climbed that on one of those 15 degree days that I somehow always wind up partaking in. I believe there were 3 that day. I recall there was a shelf at the start of the routes to the right. I had my cat heater and whoever was the 3rd would hole up in ...

Re: What is your least favorite sport crag?

I liked Tong Shing and that other really gritty 5.10 at Volunteer.

Re: Deciphering route comments

ha ha... Gumby Comment Juice. Nice.

I'm sure I've got the requisite "My first 5.10!!" and "This is hard for 9+" in there as well. :)

Re: need a "get acquainted" partner during summer '12

The local developers place high first bolts intentionally to encourage stick clipping. The rock here is not good. It's a beach just behind the patina. You'll get used to identifying what is worth pulling on when climbing newer routes where traffic hasn't cleaned them up.

Re: Decking at the Lode...

I certainly won't refuse an ATC belayer. I'd rather the belayer comfortable with what they are doing than any false sense of security from an autoblock device.

Re: need a "get acquainted" partner during summer '12

You mentioned climbing in CO and NY, I don't know what kind of stone you were on, but Corbin sandstone is rarely bullet and even then, what we call bullet is laughable in a lot of areas. I think Rick said once that we shouldn't worry about the gear so much and instead worry about the peanut brittle ...

Re: Decking at the Lode...

Larry has earned the right to be set in whatever ways he wants. That being said, when I'm being belayed with an ATC and fall, a little pee comes out. Just a little.

Hey, I have this database you can query using various API's or, if you prefer, you can flip through those 10,000 printed pages over there. Your choice.

Re: Decking at the Lode...

When I used to work in a gym we would practice catching a climber, who had a back up belay on another rope, with a grigri with a piece of tape over the caming device so it would fail. To show that a grigri will work the same as an ACT if the belayers hand was on the brake side of the rope. Would th...
