The new Robin Barley guidebook.

Despite being useless as an actual guidebook and possibly being tinged with a bit of bitterness Robin's guide is brilliant. Multiple errors in grades, names, f.a.'s and location are made throughout the book, far too many to make it a good guide, but who cares?. Robin's has given us his perspective a...

Re: Kids Zone: Call to Diggers

I have to say I thought this "crag" looked like garbage the second I saw it. Having taught and coached climbing to kids for a decade I can quite honestly say that there would be no way in hell I would take any kid to such a poor venue.

Re: Cleaning routes by R.Barley

What would happen to our freedom to develop if somebody was badly hurt or killed due to one of his poor efforts of cleaning and anchoring?

Re: Manslaughter charges filed in Tito's death

Gross negligence manslaughter can be caused by an act or omission as far as I know so they do have a case possibly. A horrible, sad story no matter the outcome.

Re: More new lines at Topshelf.

There is also a stunning, new, overhanging off-width located five minutes up the trail to the left of the main wall. Gorgar 5.10+ f.a. J. Redden. A short hike up leads to another large wall with a few new pitches. 59, 5.11c f.a. Harry Young, this route is amazing. A flare with two bolts leads to ste...

Re: Rock On - climbers urinating at belay stn

I think people should seriously consider wearing bags when they climb top 100 routes.

Re: apologizing to Colin Moorehead, thoughts on route develo

Have you even bothered to read your first post? Firstly, who asked for your unqualified, aggressive opinion of anything? Much like yourself your comparison of developers to artists is lame. Developers are not artists and artists do not value idiotic, ignorant attacks of their work, they value intell...

Re: Sunset Strip horror show

Wow! Sounds like somebody backed off something they had no business on in the first place who is trying to save face. Claiming the bolt on pitch two was too far from the anchor and then claiming to have climbed up to 5.12 seems a bit off, that sh*t was easy enough for everybody else it seems. Attack...
