  23. LOST 17quickdraws on the bolted ladder Pioneer rte

    Someone asking Ivan about correct aiding ethics and grabbing gear on regular routes.....it stopped me dead in my tracks in wonderment and I had to slow down and re-read it. This is highly and spectacularly irregular..... Ivan could easily teach a master class in pulling on gear aka "alpine trickery" as I think he likes to call it? I'm no slouch in the pulling on gear dept either - aid climbing ruined me forever.
  24. Beacon: No-lights, moonlit run up YW...?

    go do it Will - you'd like that climb I bet
  25. LOST 17quickdraws on the bolted ladder Pioneer rte

    I was contemplating this Ivan but using prussiks in aiding to climb up the rope is like grabbing the gear on regular routes, do not you think? What, like using prussiks while aiding is "bad style"? When you're aiding you get to dispense with such quaint notions of style. I always have prussiks on my harness but they're basically for emergency type situations only. Try prussiking up a 30m pitch sometime for practice to see how awesome it is - a couple of ascenders will seem reasonably priced after that experience. That said - ascenders are just a hassle on the pioneer route bolt ladder. It's easiest and fastest for the leader & follower to both aid the pitch. Without a fifi it would be a pain but not impossible. A friend of mine did it w/ just a carabiner on his belay loop and it took him like 1 1/2 hours (!) - another good learning experience. The benefit of the fifi, of course, is that when you unweight it, it will come right off - whereas with a biner, you've got to fiddle with getting the gate open, etc. It's too bad more people don't do a little aid practice before trying the pioneer route. The bolt ladder is trivial if you know what you're doing. I'd recommend that anyone who wants to climb that route go out & practice aiding on gear (on top rope even) one time, just to get the basic sequence down. That bolt ladder can be a frustrating place to do your first aid pitch.
