Comments: I brought the #5 c4 camalot and was stoked to have it. The 10b fingures is easy compared to the physical nature of moving in the squeeze. The chockstone is crap and I would not want to find out if it could hold. You can push the 5 for a bit in the back and it fits perfect. This pitch is excellent and a great journey in tecnique through almost every size.

Comments: Everyone is a Rockies fan over night, What the hell does a boring ass game like baseball have to do with climbing.

Shouldn't you all be on some ESPN forum instead spraying about a team that has absolutely nothing to do with your life, but because the team is winning you are all on the band wagon like you have been following the team forever or something.

That was a sweet game though, so cool how they got past the goalie at the last minute and kicked that extra point at the buzzer.

You are guilty of your own blames. Your comment makes you the self-righteous and judgmental time-waster.

By the way, I am far from a Granola. Can't stand them myself. I eat Beef and lots of it. Breathing and bleading if possible. I take showers, and I feel like vomiting when I smell patchouli or whatever that stuff is they bathe themselve... more >>

Comments: Just a reminder, SCOTTISH FESTIVAL is this weekend. Good luck parking at Bear Lake and being a part of one of the busiest Saturdays in Estes all summer. For those of you who don't spend much time up there, you are in for a real crowded treat this Saturday.

Jim Wacjsentjsz, the day the park makes a new rule or regulation because of this issue and your irresponsible ways is the day I will hunt you down and go pagan style rambo on your pathetic lazy ways.

"Said leave no stone unturned"

Great ethical leave no trace approach to this fragile high alpine environment. The pads are gone, This event only creates a large high impact with many people in one place at one time. This is not a place to bring high numbers and prove yourself as a climbing community that is hear to protect and preserve. You are doing quite the opposite and as much as the pebble wrestlers go there and trash it, They have never brought a group of this s... more >>

Comments: Pads have disapeared at an alarming rate, the clean up is taking place and well underway. Let's do something more productive with the adopt a crag day. The word got out and people have stepped up. As predicted, Everyone knows it is a problem and the issue is self policing itself. Let's find a better adopt a crag objective and stop this thread so we can use our energy somewhere else.

How about a diamond clean up. I was up there last week, so much tat and there are fixed ropes and gear all the w... more >>

Comments: Another note for Mark Nelson,

this was taken from the stashed pads thread, this is from Avery's post about how adopt a crag events are organized.

Doing an Adopt a Crag event
Step One: Assess Crags for Amount of Work
Step Two: Get Permission from Land Managers or Property Owners
Step Three: Develop a Plan

Step Two: Get Permission from Land Managers or Property Owners
As with any work on public or private land, get permission first. If you go in with all the above information... more >>

"It's just a volunteer deal, so where's the waste of resources? It's not as if the taxpayer foots the bill for this."

Resources is not just about money. There is still time and energy, Phone calls are being made and dates organized, etc.

That is great people are gonna volunteer there time and pitch in, but it is such an easy problem to solve, and a mass effort could be used in better places. This one will fix itself because people are s... more >>

Comments: This is a lame waste of resources, I think the clean up will have a bigger impact on access. The park could possibly begin to take a serious look into regulations and rules when they see that many people show up for this cause. They might realize how bad it really is that it has come to this. They will see the pile of trash that is brought down to Bear Lake and shake there heads in disbelief. Don't do it, it raises too much attention in the park, Just start taking the trash out on your own ... more >>
