Who is Chopping Anchors????????

Someone is chopping anchors in Little Cottonwood Canyon!!! Is this the new bolting war that everyone is afraid would happen?? Somone has chopped ALL the anchors of the "university slab" (all six ancor sets). This area is the first slab you encounter on your way to the green A gulley, right below hat...

Well, if you had a full bladder you could have just "releived" yourself all over the rope. To this date, urine has not been found to affect a rope in any safety manor, but the smell would last for a long time! At that point, I am sure that they would not be climbing eithor. Just forgive this climber...

Re: c'mon

too many people bitch about whether this should/shouldn't be glued or that should/shouldn't be bolted and not enough people say thanks for the effort. So again....THANK YOU! Yes! Thanks for taking the time, and money it takes to equip a climb. I don't think that people realize that each bolt can be...

Re: FA rights and responsibilities...

On a similar note, what gives people like Tony Caldrone the right to fill up every available 5.10 face with runout routes and at the same time overbolt things at his limit? Don't 5.10 climbers deserve the right to SAFELY lead things at their limits too? Well, why not do what the rangers in "city of...

Your friends are right.........Kind of. Some boulders DO have manufactured holds............from about 100 or more years ago. As for the other aspects of climing, I suggest you come on out and make up your own mind. Utah is worth your trouble. Granite, Quartzite, Sandstone, Limestone, Cobbles, and a...

I have actually held/ played with this cam at the Ouray Ice Festival. I think that this will be a worthwhile and useful cam. Its weight is comparable to other cams on the market, maybe a bit heavier. The real test of this cam will come in the desert, and how will the track system be affected by sand...
