    freeclimb,I never questioned your memory. Are you not reading your posts or are you just skimming? in fact I agree with you on the kevlar thing. i started climbing in 85 right when the whole kevlar thing was all the rage.The first lesson I ever took was at A-16, and they specifically told us to ONLY use kevlar for nut slings, and not for prussiks or as rope.do you dance? 'cause you sure are good at sidesteppin! [ 03-26-2002: Message edited by: JoeTool ] [ 03-26-2002: Message edited by: JoeTool ]

    Freeclimb; quote: I've been in this climbing game for twenty years, and have rarely heard, or read, of gear failures. Do have an illustrative example of a webbing failure? Freeclimb, I see NO reason to take the fact that you are full of shit into a private e-mail discussion.You don't seem to have any problem posting here. You asked for an example in the real world, and I gave you one.Your only response after that, was some flippant remark about your fishing!I will not take a discussion into e-mail. I f you have somthing to say to me or rodchester say it here. Flame on

    BTW, I noticed that after I posted my test results on his girth hitch of death, freeclimb never responded.

    thats a good idea,mabye we could have moroneers posted at the base of all routes to check out all certifications and make sure you have a helmet and the 100 essentials.

    I totally agree we should continue the fee program! The forest service should use some of that money to enact helmet legislation, requiring all climbers to wear helmets.Also they could put bolts at each climb just for safetys sake.Oh yeah, it would be nice if they could put some sort of smoke detector in the muir hut, maybe with a camera so the rangers could bust those lame ass dope pushers and abusers when they get down off the mountain.And while were at it, I was thinking it would be cool if there was some sort of mandatory belay certification you had to get before you could belay anyone.
