  1. Lost: arcteryx softshell smith rocks

    Hey there, I have your jacket in Portland and my buddy has your other jacket, hat and glasses (didn't have room for all of it). I forgot about it until I emptied my pack yesterday! I gave my buddy a call and he still has your other stuff as well. What side of town are you on? I'm in SW, my buddy's in SE and we both work the next few nights in a row. Maybe get you your stuff back this weekend? Sorry for the late response. Phillip
  2. Lower Gorge soft? Cruel Sister is the hardest 10a I've ever been on.
  3. Recall Alert: GRIGRI 2

    Whether you call or email Petzl, make sure to request a shipping label that will be sent to you via email. I called a rep, received a "RA" number, but was refused free shipping at the UPS Store. When I called Petzl back while at UPS, they said the way they were trying to handle the shipping was a problem and apologized that the code I was given over the phone wouldn't work.

    Your "dbags have retrobolted a trad line even though I haven't seen it" anger is bullshit, too.

  9. I want to be a "new girl!" (need RN position!)

    The Oregon job market is tough- many hospitals have removed their new grad positions and require 1-2 years of experience. The area hospitals that offer new grad internships get flooded with applicants for limited positions. St. Charles in Bend has limited positions even for experienced RNs. The only interview I got in Central OR was at the prison in Madras. Good luck in your search, but if you aren't finding what you're looking for I'd recommend getting RN work/experience wherever you can while you continue to look. As someone that just went through this process over the summer, I feel for you! Best of luck on the boards and job hunting.

  11. Cool video - Dracula 5.12 RX

    Crimper's right. From the PRG site via Tom Scales: "Last but not least, Dracula (5.12a) is in my opinion the best route on the wall. Technical and pumpy, it keeps you thinking all the way to the intimidating finish. Originally an aid line, it was first free-climbed by our own Gary Rall back in 1990. In 2004, my friend Eric Vining and I made the first “clean” ascents, skipping all 10 bolts. The first half of the route is a bit dicey, with the first gear (a couple RPs) coming at the 3rd bolt. Keep it together while climbing the “ramp” and you’re rewarded with bomber placements at the 5th bolt; just don’t get too pumped plugging cams below the pod! We sent Bloodline sans bolts a few days later, which was far less nerve-racking, as it eats gear start to finish.
