  1. I would like to give a shout out to Tyler for being the fucking man!
  2. There is also that super awesome place with fixed draws that stays dry in a downpour...
  3. Dude it's 2011 just drill a bolt ladder and take out the ones that you don't wanna clip.
  4. I think smith is, in general, a horrible place to learn to trad climb. I think it would be preferable to build your technique/muscles in the gym or sport climbing, then head to trout or the lower gorge to learn to place gear.
  5. The lower gorge? It looks a bit lush for being in a desert.
  6. Iodine is super light and cheap. I think it's awesome. edit: it takes about 10 minutes to dissolve.
  7. I have a blue alien, but would prefer to have a purple C3. Let me know if you want to trade. The blue alien is in good shape, though it could use a cleaning and some lube for sure. I would prefer a local (pdx)in-person swap. send responses to bakerjohnalex at g-male , please. Alex
  8. Thanks G-Spotter. I edited my post so it actually makes reasonable sense.
  9. Hmmm. Doing a quick comparison using some tech specs found at various places on the internet: (feel free to check, they could be wrong) Gipsy........Max range: 205mm Weight: 485g BD C4 #6.....Max Range: 195mm Weight: 557g Big Bro # 3..Max Range: 203mm Weight: 263g Things I noticed: 1. A gipsy is roughly twice as heavy as a big bro for a similar range. 2. A gipsy weighs about 2 light carabiners less than a BD #6 for a similar range. This doesn't exactly scream innovation to me.
