Re: PDs at Lode

not been on it - I realy don/t have much to offer this debate since I am not climbing much these days - BUT I love the Red and want to see the next generation take good care of it.

Re: PDs at Lode

Artsay - my problem with this whole debate is that somewhere since I stopped climbing, the climbing community starting managing fixed gear. If you are currently working on Taste the Rainbow then it is your responsiblity to unsure your safety and if that mean swtiching out the fixed gear than do it. ...

Re: PDs at Lode

For me i just don't see how the responsibility of safe gear DOES NOT fall on the climber(s) who are climbing or working the route? It's not up to the community to keep climbers safe, it's up the the individual climber, and when you take away the climbers ability to discern what is safe you create th...

Re: ACCESS TO ROADSIDE - closed unttil further notice

I love how every access issue or just complaint about climbers often ends up being about dogs and yet the dog owners still try to defend bringing them to the crag.

Re: After p90x

Sunday will be 90 days for me too. I think P90X is one of the best out there, I have had pretty amazing results but 90 days is really just the start, it takes a hell of a lot longer to than 90 days to get fit. I am either going to just do the whole "classic" 90 days again or get the P90X "plus" prog...

Re: Who does it belong to?

Nit - loved your story! Perfect comedy relief for the thread!!

I agree with pigsteak - climbers will not police themselves, how is that not obvious?

Re: Who does it belong to?

Matt, I think Lena_Chita and Rollo summed the question up better. Believe me, no one hates what a shit show climbing in the red has become more than me. I see this disgusting sense of entitlement at every major crag. I' ve heard people making fun of Kentucky half way up a route to the rest of their...

Re: Who does it belong to?

It has been suggested that I create further signage, greater web presence, etc. to address these issues; however, I feel that anything that I have to “do” is an imposition on me and should not be a part of allowing general access to my property. In a nutshell the climbing community should realize t...

Re: Who does it belong to?

Was it the online guidebook comments that prompted your concern or something else? With all due respect, Bob climbing has been promoted to the saturation point and beyond in the Red for several years now. Every crag is loaded up for the most part on a given weekend with nice weather. It's your land...

Never in a common sport climbing situation. Belay anchors are usually only need to when you need to keep the belayer from falling off his/her belay stance....and of course on multi pitch climbs

Maybe this will be the year where more people will learn how to prevent accidents than learn how to deal with one when it happens.

Re: Lead belay question

This is my biggest pet-peeve right now. I had to re-teach someone in the gym recently about it. Standing too far away from the way is a really bad idea. When the climber falls low he/she will rack their groin on the rope and second they will probably hit the belayer then the ground. You need to stan...
