  1. Last Saturday, at the Country (Index LTW) someone (mistakenly, I assume) walked off with my harness & chalk bag. Large arc'teryx harness and blue metolius chalk bag. I would love to get it back if someone finds an extra in their bag. Thanks!
  2. Cerberus 5.11d Squamish - Pendulum Fall

    that was terrible.
  3. first female 5.15a

    Most of the hardest trad lines are pink pointed too. Are you sure she placed gear on lead? I thought I remembered her clipping pre-placed pieces.

    Seriously? I know it's not cold and dangerous, but the level of dedication to training required to climb cutting edge free routes (i.e. sport or bouldering) is super inspiring to me. Way more inspiring than doing something dangerous way beneath your technical climbing ability. How can someone seriously discuss free-soloing a 5.9 in the same breath as sending 5.15? Any brave punter could go out and free solo the NEB this summer with vary little preparation. Only a few women in the world could realistically send a 15a.

    I think that Ashima will probably do one this summer if she gets an extended trip to somewhere where she can project one that suits her. I think Sasha Digulian is out, it doesn't seem like she's done anything hard since she started college. Does Josune even climb any more? Murial & Angela have been crushing lately.
  6. Index Bird Closures?

    There weren't any signs up for Midnight in the tumwater, either. Usually, it's closed by now.
  7. What is your definition of shenanigans?
  8. rotary hammer drills...

    The 18v makitas do surprisingly well. With two batteries, you could get a route done at Index. Probably not at little si. They're so much lighter than the old 36v drills, and less expensive too.
  9. Seattle and beyond...Visiting 3/29-4/10

    Any of the climbing gyms might be a decent place to meet up. Seattle Bouldering Project, Vertical World, Stone Gardens, etc.
  10. Cirque of the Unclimbables - Flight Share

    I can't go, but I'm curious, how much does it cost?
  11. An ode to Frenchman Coulee

    Regulation sucks. A WCC clean-up event/party/raffle and some added signage would be good first steps.
  12. Living in Anacortes?

    there are some decent mountain biking trails, and all the chuckanut trails are only 30 minutes away.

    Last chance before I send them back!
