Lost: Alpine draw on Slesse

If you've happened to have found an alpine draw with Astro carabiners, or a DMM Shadow locking carabiner on Slesse I would gladly trade beer or a beverage or pastry of your choice for their return. The gear will have blue sparkly nail polish on it. Please email me at "bertin _ w at hotmail dot com" ...

Re: Chilly batteries

Oops, my mistake, I did mean lithium and not lithium-ion! One thing to keep in mind when comparing cost is that a lithium battery will last a good deal longer than an alkaline. How much longer is unfortunately variable, depending on things like operating temperature and discharge rate. Lithiums are ...

Re: Chilly batteries

Hanger Missing on First Bolt of Gertrude in Murrin

...and there's a big chalked X at the start of the route. Anyone know what's going on here? We sent our 200 lb friend up to test the holds on TR, but he couldn't find anything unusually sketchy.

Re: Worn Fixed Gear

Nice link. Mammut seems most worried about wear on the draw on the first bolt. I wonder if it makes more sense then, instead of having a blanket ban on permadraws, to have climbers use one of their own draws on the first bolt, and leave the rest fixed.
