Let's just make sure the replacements only apply to what's already there as far as on-lead gear. Routes at times get "improved" in the name of rebolting. Re-spacing bolts on rap does an injustice to routes originally drilled on lead. Monkey knows what he's doing. Keep his bits sharp and hi...

It's hard when you lose a mate and there's nothing and no one to blame. No avalanche, no rock fall, just bad luck. But you gotta say, he lived it like there was no tomorrow.

Ok Jun, that was a valid approach for me about 20 years ago. But it's hard to tell the kids that we're going to the crags wedged in the back of someone's Subie.

Ultimate climbing road rig

OK, I'm looking for my next rig. I've been through the VW Westfalia and out the other side. It had great camping gear, but a shitty engine. Exhibit A Sportsmobile is the ultimate CAV (climbing assault vehicle), but very $$$pendy. Exhibit B What else have you all seen that works well? I'm not that co...

Replies: 52

That is a popular fallacy. A big loop does not reduce impact force--it just means the leader will fall farther. A big loop is simply a convenience for leaders who don't want to be short-roped on clips. To offer a soft catch, keep your eye on the leader and jump just as they begin to impact the rope ...
