    I definately will keep all this in mind. Around here I've got Red River Gorge and will be heading out there this weekend. All I've got to say is that it is quite a bit more challenging-yep and FUN!!!!

    Don't use bleach, it might turn them funky colors. I use soap and water, let them dry out in the sun, then if still stinky, spray frebreeze in them and put unused dryer sheets in the toes for storage.

    You and me both. I'm doing this on a very tight budget, cams will be later. But when my partner and I get together, I'll borrow some of his. Thanks for the advice.

    Hello everyone. I'm new to trad climbing and learning how to place the passive pro. Just curious how long did it take before you felt comfortable with your gear placements to trust putting your weight on them. Thanks.

    Agreed with two-take limber and a rest day every so often. I have a bad back and knees and stretching does work wonders and also a varied warm up routine.
