    Attention: If you have stubbornly refused to adapt to the new climbing world,

    It's true, things are not as hard as they once were.

    Everyone climbs 5.11a.

    Most can climb a 12a...

    A lot of people that I know have climbed 13a...

    Among the folks that I climb with, 4 have climbed 14a...


    Me?... 5.9+ baby!


    "Everyone climbs 5.11a".....whatever. It's like Chouinard says. "Back then I couldn't do 5.11 but I could do a one-arm pullup. Now, I can get up 5.11a but I can't do a one-arm." Grades are soft, bolts have demystified 5.11. Your average sport climber is still in over his head on old-school 5.11, and that's the bottom line.

    The picture from Medford shows a pretty good shadow for Mount Shasta too. Haven't seen the Seattle one for Rainier yet. Should be a fair sized shadow.

    Arlen, check your calender. It's a little early yet. grin.gif


    You should see the shadow of Big Lou's anatomical ski pole, if you know what I mean.

    Sisu, let me reiterate, do not listen to this nonsense about reglueing your G3 Skins, or spreading the glue around, they will just peel again. G3 should be held fully accountable for the lousy quality of merchandise they have put on the market the last few years.


    Reglueing Ascension skins with Ascension glue is a time-honored tradition performed after many years of wear and tear. With care the reapplication can be nearly as affective as the original factory glue application. But the problem with the G3's is not just the glue, it's the material that the glue is meant to adhere to.


    Return them and get Ascensions. If that doesn't work, return them and get this year's grey G3 skins.


    This is the best advice here. thumbs_up.gif

  4. Hey, I just tuned in to this thread so I'm late to acknowledge that it's true that AT does mean "can't tele" and to point out that tele is an art where AT is a means to an end. You should know that a snowmobile will get you up and down with more efficiency than AT so you can more quickly get back to your wimmen and prematurely ejaculate yet again.

  5. That karpet looks good. What do you do? Get and old carpet and roll it up like a burritto? I read the link there and it just talked about how it handled then the pros cons and tips.


    How about the attachment to the body and to the carpet? Do things rip up over time. How has this been tested? I can imagine it would be ripped up in some situations but if you apply it in the proper plan it _seems_ ok. Do the attachment areas rip? Are you attaching them by slings through a cut hole in the carpet?
