"I'm knott in that category, Locker, but I'll be there!".

Any chance you'd consider wearing a micro mini, fishnet stockings, and spiked heels? Maybe some red lipstick?

That was a great workshop, and I'm proud to have been a part of it.

Volunteers spent four hours learning:
  • rigging, drags and lifting
  • splitting with feathers and wedges
  • how to operate a pretty burly rotary hammer
  • shaping tools

In the rigging workshop, we got 500+ pound rocks in the air and set pulley systems to move them. All with packable gear. Not trivial.

The participants are going to be a very valuable asset to sustainable climbing access trails (and mountain bike trails - there was a COMBA rep in the hizzle!). Thank you for donating your morning - I'll hoist one with you guys any damn day.

Good job and excellent work!

"Not trivial" is probably an understatement.
