There is like $2k in gear strewn around that picture... and that's conservative. I am jealous.

I really don’t appreciate photos of me and my friend being plastered all over this forum. You all started climbing at some point and had to learn somewhere.

Some people don’t know how to pick up sarcasm and jokes.

It’s nice to see Tradiban and Harumpfster Boondoggle getting out and enjoying some desert rock together.

That is an old photo..... I believe it was featured on the cover of “Hot Belayer” a now defunct climbing mag from the 90’s. My mind is fuzzy but I recall it was vol 2 #7...... some good stuff in that one. Controversial topics included: Grigri- a no hands device? ..... And: the soft catch- reality or myth? And a complete review of special Belayer Helmets. And an interesting interview with Dean Caldwell..... titled “31 daze on the Wall o Early Morning Light, my perspective”
