  1. An exciting, no-experience-required Via Ferrate ( fixed mountaineering route) in the Canadian Rockies. Heli-Hiking and mountaineering guests at the Bobbie Burns Lodge fly by helicopter

     

    Just wait until THIS catches on south of the border!

    I wouldn't be overly suprised if sport routes were sabotaged with acid or something.

     

    I remember hearing a story about how someone had deliberately rigged a death sport route up there years ago.

     

    Apparently, they cut the heads off some bolts and epoxied them to hangers, then epoxied the whole set-up onto a possible line. The person reporting thought the route looked a little hinky, so pull-tested the first hanger and it popped. He then cleaned the whole affair, reporting that even the anchors were glued onto the wall.

     

    Scary stuff.

    Vitamin B, C, and D, plus a little E every week.

    REGULAR stretching.

    Speaking of regular, outmeal with fresh ground flax seed and fruit every morning.

    Warm up before every workout.

    You should have already proven it.
