  1. BD Cobras

    Selling a pair of BD Cobras. Couple years old. Used about 4 times at Ouray, excellent condition. 1 hammer, 1 adze $425 I can deliver in Seattle area
  2. You can rap DH/LA with one rope. From the top of the 3rd pitch of DH, rap straight down (2 raps get you to the ground). A 70m gets you all the way to dirt on the last rap, a 60 gets you to the ledge about 20 ft up on Calling Wolfgang, which requires a downclimbing.

  4. House in Index for rent

    They prefer long-term, but I bet they would go month to month (maybe just until a long-term option comes up).
  5. House in Index for rent

    Not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but... My friend has a house out here in Index he is looking to rent. Its a 1 bedroom plus a loft on its own 2 acres. Big enough for 2 single people. At the end of the road, but still here in town. No houses between it and the river. Large deck, large yard, big trees. Around $800 a month. Feel free to post questions here or email me.

  6. Physical Therapists in Seattle area

    thanks for the info jon, I'll def give them a call. ya tyler, the doc said that a 3 month recovery is likely given the 20% tear(s) and my awesome physical shape going into surgery...who know a steady diet of bourbon and soda while watching the rain fall in index was the preferred 'pre-surgery' diet. should be ready for the traverse by the time the snow melts up there this summer. Snowing on the upper town wall today, wtf?
  7. Physical Therapists in Seattle area

    Im getting surgery on torn rotator cuff AND labrum. Are there any climbing Physical Therapists that love their jobs in the Seattle area? I have to find a PT by the 26th and would love some references. thanks
  8. be careful this spring

    If you are anywhere in the Sky valley (much less on a boulder 30 ft off hwy 2) I usually hack away. The next time you go back, whatever you cut down will have grown back anyway:)
  9. First Ascents - how to

    dont forget Mr. Funtime
  10. FYI on Index - The Cheeks Area

    way to be responsible stewards guys! you are correct...that is one of the places the falcons nest every year. the lack of traffic over there gives them a hassle free place to do their thing. the biologists who set up their spotting scopes down in town, can get good observations due to the nests location.
  11. Walter B @ Index (anchor bolt a bit sketchy)

    tightened the anchor bolt and the others on the route as well...all is right in the world again. chris
  12. Walter B @ Index (anchor bolt a bit sketchy)

    it was a standard 3/8 bolt using, standard practices. no loctite, over-torqueing, etc. what ive noticed with many bolts placed at index, during the first couple years it seems that freeze thaw can loosen the bolts a bit, requiring re-tightening, which usually takes care of the problem. (or maybe its just the train vibration/5th force combo thats the culprit.) im going out today, ill have a look.
  13. Thin Fingers Rating!

    Seems pretty solid 11a to me. Im pretty sure ive never given it an 11c vote...at least not in the last 10 years:) chris
