  1. Thin ropes- tag lines?

    What do you guys think is the thinnest line you can get that can be used as a tag line for light hauling, and descents when tied together with a normal 9.8-10 mm single rope? Any advice on this set up would be much appreciated. Also when tie-ing these ropes together do you do anything special? I'm sure the information is out there but I figured I would ask here first. I was thinking of picking one up with all these sales that are happening. thanks
  2. Icicle Canyon Conditions

    Is upper castle and midnight rock, dry enough?
  3. Newly Bolted Route: Sunshine Wall

    Cheers for the route. I was glad to have a couple small cams for the top. I remember Dave soloing past me on castle rock twice, as he did laps on the lower half. That was mega. I always thought there was something else rather meditative going on while while he climbed. Quite inspiring.

  6. UW rock

    Does anyone have information on the fate of the Rock? Will it be impacted by the new 520 project or does the UW have plans for this area? Any info would be appreciated.
  7. UW rock

    The rock seems safe as it can be, here is part of an email I just got regarding the rock. This is really good news from the someone on the inside. Hey Nick, I asked Matt Jensen about the rock (he's in charge of the IMA crags) and he said that the UW rock is in no danger of being torn down -- if it was, it would have to be approved by his department, and informed me that if it was in danger, he wouldn't let it go without a serious fight. He also let me know that the bigger threat to the rock is the fact that the rock is old and as it ages, it may becomes less structurally sound. There is a VERY slight chance that the construction they are doing down there right now could decrease the structural integrity of the rock. If that for some reason does happen, Matt has a proposal ready to go to build a new rock. All in all, good news. Let me know if you find anything else out.
