  1. Toproping at Smith

    I'll be down in Redmond Oregon 2/1 through 2/3 and if the weather cooperates, I was hoping to set up a top rope for my daughter. She's twelve, two small to belay me on lead, and kinda crushes. Since I'm not really confident in her ability to rope gun yet, does anybody know of any 10's, 11's or 12's that can easily be top roped? I've been down there a bunch, looked on-line and am coming up with extremely limited options. If it were summer, the gorge would be great, but I want to keep it fun, by not freezing to death!
  2. Swelling in palm below ring finger?

    My wife has been providing deep massage on my hand as well. Hurts, but seems to have stopped what was a fairly rapid progression. I have also been taking about 1200 IU's of vitamin E daily. This dosage is below what is "recommended" online, but I'm a little skeptical about doubling the dose.
  3. Swelling in palm below ring finger?

    I got diagnosed with Dupuytren's last Thursday. Mine is a bit painful and seems to have developed in the last 3 weeks. My main question is... If my hand turns into a claw, will that be considered aid?
  4. I think they are from 2001 or so. Tops are scratched, bottoms are good, and the bindings are great. If you've ever wanted to give Tele a try, come and get them. FREE Scott
  5. Seattle Area Partner

    Looking for a partner to climb with on a regular basis. Hoping for the gym a couple of days a week and Fridays outside as frequently as possible. Also would like to get in a couple of weekend trips and maybe a weeklong trip sometime during the summer. My general preference is to avoid the crowds so long approaches, runouts, brush, and or choss don’t bother me much (ie: alpine or slab). That said, if the only thing to be had is clipping bolts at one of the exits, I’m in. If you have kids, great, I do too so we can understand each other’s potential scheduling “difficulties”. Meet me at the gym or lets grab a beer and scheme.
  6. Misc. Gear

    Cleaning out my basement and have some old gear that I would like somebody to get some use out of. Some of it may belong in the Smithsonian, but it is all still usable. Black Diamond Prophets -Adz and Hammer – Picks are in good shape - $40 each - Sold Grivel Rambo Comp Dual Point Crampons – $60 North Face Soloist Bivy - ~ 2 lbs. - $50 ~55 climbing holds with hardware and a couple of handfuls of jibs. Holds vary; some roof, some sloper, some incuts with very few crimpers. They’re all suitable for hand holds (I used the jibs for feet and crimpers). I also have two 4 X ~7 panels and three ~ 4X4 textured panels from the old Vertical World. There are t-nuts in all the panels- $100 for holds – panels free with holds (if you want them. Sold This is my best guess of the value for this stuff. If you disagree, make me an offer.
  7. Trailer Bike

    I have an Adams Trail-A-Bike that works great. My daughter loves it. She smiles and laughs the entire time we ride (seriously).Got it on Craigslist for $50.
  8. Darrington Sunday

    I have a hall pass for Sunday and was hoping to get out on some slab. Likely 3 o'clock but would be open to suggestions. Ideally looking for somebody with experience, interested in finding a regular partner and who enjoys slurping a beer or two at the end of the day. I've climbed at various Darrington crags over the years so am reasonably familiar with the area. I have a rope, gear, and car so let's get out. Ps. My spouse is looking over my shoulder and requests that you not be a rookie or a really hot chick.

  11. Kids Skis?

    Anybody have kid skis and boots that they want to get rid of? My son is 7 about 4'4" and has a size 2.5 shoe. Thanks!!!
  12. Dr Martin Mankey

    He's awesome. He kept me out of surgery when others wanted to cut.
  13. Seoul???

    Seoul is a great town. I was only there for a few days with no opportunity to climb, but saw lots of rock. Check out this link - Korea's version of Cascadeclimbers... http://www.koreaontherocks.com/ Have fun!
  14. Impantable cardioverter-defibrillator

    In an effort to save tax payers money and reduce the risk to our emergency responders (from lifting fat people), I think implantable cardioverter-defibrillators should be required for anyone eating at fast food restaurants, smoking, or drinking.
  15. [TR] Exfoliation Dome - Blueberry 9/13/2009

    Just an FYI - Did Westward Ho on the Friday before Labor day. It's missing a couple of hangers (bolts in tact) - Second pitch and fourth pitch. I likely won't be back up there until next year, so if somebody wants to take charge, I'm sure it would be much appreciated.
