  1. I'm looking for current route info on the East side of Chimney Rock proper, post rock fall. Joe Lind wrote up a good description on his and Jesse's new section of crack climbing here a while back. Anything since then? Saw that the 2nd pitch of the C-H is still climbable at the original grade with a cleaner 2nd pitch after the rock fall of 2012. And that supposedly the old east face rap line is now being used as a hanging belay for that same 2nd pitch? True? Anyone have the beta, 1st hand details or a topo for anything new on that face? I've heard of a new thin, 1/2" finger crack route in the general area by "Aaron and Winter" @ 12+ ? Curious about any new bolts put in on that wall for pro, belays or as a rap station as well. When were drilled, for what and by whom? Thanks!
  2. 179cm, Flex: Medium/Stiff (Standard Edition Option), Topsheet Graphic Art: Speed, Core Ingredients: UL Core- Carbon/Triaxial Fiberglass, Base Graphic Options: Red Background Diecut, FS Praxis 9D8 Drilled one for a 307 bsl and a Dynafit Speed Super Light binding. 4 holes on the toe, 3 on the heel.

    dropped the price $50.
  5. Looks real boney at the bottom for you guys from the couple times I've done it. Chock stone was covered as well. Top corner looks typically dry though. Nice job guys. It is a climb I really enjoy. Easy modern mixed and dry tooling on some nice granite. This is Craig at the entrance we used and a line drawing of where it was. Bit more snow on the chock stone Never was sure where Ade's party entered. Figured they traversed over to the same gully entrance. Ade's photo below. We went up the little gully at the black dotted line both times.
  6. $300 via F&F on Pay Pal NIB binding

    Hi Jason I seem to inadvertently keep trying, but not dead yet!

    Nice TR! More fun to be had going either direction from Roothan to Harrison. But gotta say the Beehive is also a stand out at better logistics..

    Thanks. Glad the info inspired and may be helped out some.
  10. Used one day. Not the best fit for my foot. Optional gaiter included. $700 shipped USPS. Pay Pal F&F preferred. more info here: https://skimo.co/scarpa-alien-1.0-boots
  11. New pair of unused Nomics. Still have protectors and hang tags. This is the newest version with hammer and ice picks and a spike on the pommel. The still sell for $300 a piece. $600 for the pair retail. Little late in the season but they just showed up here. $450 including shipping via priority mail in the USA. Pay Pal works best for me via f & f transaction.
  12. My thought originally was it is just Haston's magic fingers as well. It aint, trust me. 2 minutes with one and you'll be just as quick as Hastion appears to be with them. I am not chitting you here. It really is that easy. Was able to pick up a few wire/solid gate samples and been playing with them. Although I thought/wanted the pear solid gate versions. Used the wire/solid combo for a few days. Then today just replaced all my glacier skiing lockers with the wire/solid Twin gate version. Kinda like a Nomic..once ya try it you aren't gonna go back to something less. Here is what I think of them and the impression just keeps getting better/stronger the more I use them. http://coldthistle.blogspot.fr/2014/04/grivel-twin-gate.html I have never, ever liked lockers. Detest them truth be told. And only used them when required, sparingly at that. That is now gonna change. Lots of places I'd like an easy to use and fail safe locker beside the typical. Racking ice screws is a start. But there are others. Bad pro, short q-draws, bolts. List will get longer I suspect once I start looking around. Certainly going to change the profile of my Spartan rack for rock, ice or alpine. If you get some extra security with little weight penalty and virtually no extra hassle, why not?
  13. Didn't find a thread on these. Pardon me if there is one already and feel free to delete this one if so. Old news it seems but new to me. My impression is the new Grivel Twin gate really is the chit deserving one I think. I'm very impressed. Just as easy to use as Haston shows. No magic fingers here just really good design work. Call it a PSA.
  14. here ya go.. have fun! http://coldthistle.blogspot.com/2010/12/polar-circus-route-description-photo.html
