I like slab and i like slab a lot more when i'm wearing a new pair of Muira's lace up. Muira velcro's also rule for edging,smearing and standing on small crystals. If you size em flat & snug they won't stretch much either making a wicked all around squamish shoe. The biggest performance advantage th...

Are you sure it was pink cliff? or was it the pink-colored cliff around the corner from the beaver as there is some new bolted routes there, we climbed the one on the left and thought 10+/11- it also had a free petzl biner on it!! Fun climb too!

That makes sense, thanks for clarifying. Sounds wild!
Sorry for the bad info- one must be careful when talking with climbers that have a imbalanced strength:memory/intelligence ratio. Probably easy to mix up route names when they all feel 5.6 but remembering rent day feels 5.14

Tall Skinny People

my belief has always been that it's highly possible this climb is a tube of grease but the other day a very unreliable source (strong climber with a bad memory) said it has been recleaned, rebolted and ....good ? Does anyone else hear this?? Or done it? I know there is a new route next door to it bu...

Re: It was me!

Here are the reasons I think the line should stay; - If reinstalled for the long-term, it would provide security to everyone, regardless of ability. - The large majority of climbers on the Apron are beginner to intermediate. - Will help reduce the polishing of the rock - Why the hell not? At least ...

Very cool bit of history, this route has always sounded interesting to me but where it actually starts and ends has always been elusive. The water grooves are very prominent from below and look super cool, kinda like the ones before the final flake on banana peel but way more prominent and much long...

It sounds like for many people here that climbing is an activity they participate in because it challenges the mind and puts you in situations where you must calculate and accept risks. When faced with a climbing challenge - eg. "should we rope up for this 4th class section? or scramble? or belay?" ...

Just 2 summers ago Moccasyms were $89 + tax and Muira Lace were $129 + tax @ climb on & MEC, how can the same shoe that has been made the same way for almost a decade go up in price so much? Did 5.10 stop getting children to make their shoes or something? Looks like its resole time.... :cry: One bra...

Yup, usually if i do Snake or anything north of that. You just walk to the base of Karen's Math and the gully that leads up to Memorial ledge then scramble(Hip belay maybe first time) down to the left (lookers left not skiers left) near a gravelly crack which is to the left of the top of Calculus an...
