  1. My dear friends and brothers of the rope. I am moving to Montana in March, and I have two brand new guidebooks for sale/ trade. They are Rock Climbs of Central Washington and Tieton River Rocks. These books sell for 26.95 and 14.95 new, but I would be willing to sell them for a good bit less. I am easygoing and willing to make a deal for somebody who is willing to use them. These books have never been used Sincerely, Jamin Smitchger 509-979-2336 3410 Emerald Downs Ln. Pasco, WA

    I would be interested in trying to get to muir this Saturday. Call me at 509-979-2336 if you are still interested. About me, I have two successful summits of Rainier, and I really love hiking and climbing stuff. Lately I haven't been able to get out too much due to work, but this would be a good fun trip.

I like climbing, but I haven't been getting out very much lately so I am looking to get out this weekend. Give me a call at 509-979-2336. Sincerely, Jamin
  5. Presidents' Day Weekend

    Hey, I would be interested in getting out for a climb this president's day weekend. I also haven't been really getting out alot, but I am looking to go have some fun. Anyways, my e-mail is j7jamin at yahoo.com. Shoot me an e-mail or call me at 509-979-2336.
  6. I recently purchased a petzl rocpeck drill. Does anybody know what size drill bit to use with it? What would be the best size bit for 3/8 in. bolts. I guess you guys can really tell now that I am a newbie at sport climbing. What is the cheapest place to get some cheap climbing bolts and hangers.
  7. So is there any decent ice in Alpental where there is no risk from getting buried in a flowing snowfield. It wouldn't have to be too tall or anything.
  8. How many lead falls can a rope take?

    Diameter: 10.5 mm Grams Per Meter: 68 Impact Force: 8.0 kN UIAA Falls Held: 11 Static Elongation: 7.2% Dynamic Elongation: 31.8% Sheath Slippage: 0 mm It looks like my rope held 11 falls with an impact force of about 1800 lbs. In other words, ropes are good for many falls of decent (10-15 ft) distances for about 5 years. Anyone concur? Billcoe, was that guy who was rappelling even using a climbing rope correctly. It sounds like that guy had been abusing his climbing rope for ten years by storing it near leaky batteries and hacking it in half in numerous places.
  9. A friend of mine asked this question after he had taken a 12 foot whipper. I have heard that 10 falls of 4 feet or greater will completely stretch out the core of the rope, but I am not really sure.
  10. Placing bolts

    I would be up for that.

    Bug, have you ever climbed to the top of West Trapper. My brother and I tried to climb that one this summer. We were running late and I climbed the wrong spire. The real summit spire was about 5-10 feet higher, and it looked like the pro would have been shoddy. Any info about that climb would be appreciated.
  12. Placing bolts

    Hey, hindsight is always 20 20. So let me guess, none of you guys have ever done something dumb on a climb.
  13. Placing bolts

    I thought about it, but I decided to rap. Mucho exposure.
  14. Placing bolts

    The guy who posted on summitpost did not rappel down the route. I always check out summitpost before I climb mountains. Unfortunately, for many mountains route information is still limited. There was no information at all for where I went this weekend. I mainly do alpine climbing on mountains that are not extremely popular.
