Exactly!!!!!  I'd be more than happy to pay for bolts if I knew people wouldn't chop them.  I don't know how to place a bolt... so I can't help there.


Internet gold.

Excuse me, are you cross posting in this thread!? Don't act like people have forgotten that Idyllwild thread.

That thread alone made me realize Tradiban's brilliance.  That thread makes the Criterion Collection.

IMO, if the pro is bad and there is a history of injuries a bolt is needed.

If there's a history of injuries then it means a bunch of people without the requisite skills are getting on it who shouldn't, but that in no way means a bolt is required. However unfortunate it may be that people get injured when they fuck up climbing, it's part of the inherent nature of what trad climbing is. Not prepared to manage risk or accept the consequences of your decisions and actions? Fine, then don't trad climb, but even contemplating the prospect of bolting a fifty-year-old classic is both insulting and embarrassing.

Am I the only one that thinks those holes should have been even closer together?



WTF?

Glad to hear from a Tradifan! I'm assuming the FA is unavailable? Has anyone consulted the "community"? Anyone know the "community's" address or phone number?

I keep coming back to this thread to see if there was a report on the climbers/accident. Any word? Sorry if I am off topic by inquiring about the original post.

On the plus side, it’s a pretty nice, flat decking zone. Plumb fall. I give it 2/10.

We could always list pads and spotter as protection?

Should they bring a release of liability form?

Any way to set a long TR on this instead?

Too much work.  Autobelay instead?

If you have to ask, you're not local.

Locals here, locals there!
We're the locals everywhere!
We've been here for a short stretch
But we know this land the best
Climb our rocks, climb our cocks
Locals beta says that hold's off
How do we know because our friend
He's been local since way back when
last month

Remember if you are local, you can set up slacklines everywhere.

The old guard will not be offended, as it will return the route to its FA condition with the rusty pins.

Haven't ever seen anything like that, how old it might be?

LOL "old style piton".

Hrmpf™.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
