  1. Run pace

    Here's an example from today... Ran the Dirty Half with my wife, pretty much off the couch... and my time certainly reflected that (2:45). My main climbing partner has been training for three months, and he ran it a whole hour faster than myself. I ran so slow I almost missed the Taco Stand burritos at the end. My goals were very different than my friends, I wanted to run with my wife, drink beers, and have a smile on my face the whole time. He wanted to beat his wifes PR.
  2. T rice 164.5 trade SOLD

    I have an older (2008) 159 Skate Banana that I would consider trading.
  3. Goggles? What brand/color do you wear?

    I've got several pairs of goggles I would be willing to sell for cheap. I posted a pair of Smiths a while back that never sold. Oakley A frames too.. Good luck with your bid on Shasta!
  4. Gearheads: 90+ liter packs for 2-3 week excursions

    I use a ArcTeryx Bora 95 when I need a pack that big. I pretty much only use it for outdoor ed and wilderness therapy courses, when you might (read: do) have to open it up and carry a bunch of other people's stuff. It's like an insurance policy in the backcountry for swallowing gear. I pretty much avoid using my 95 unless I'm working. I've got a 50 and a 62 that work for everything else. How long of a food pack will you be doing at a time?

  6. Spantiks for splitboarding (and climbing)

    Without looking at the setup I can only guess.. but I would suggest messing around with the angle of your stance. I know that can be a bit limited by the voile discs, but it could offer a bit of space on your board. IMHO it really comes down to the width or the board compared to the size of the boot, so if your board really is too narrow, cutting a new one would be the next best option. Hope you get your setup ready for La Nina!
  7. Super Slab Bolted???

    "Ummmm. I did check the guidebook, did you? Obviously not as the route is not in there. " JLag - Are the two of us talking about different routes? Unless I am mistaken that route is in the second Watts guidebook... so your post here confused me. Where did you not find it? -PT
  8. Super Slab Bolted???

    FYI - The first Ascent information in the Watts' second addition says that " A Stroke of Brilliance" was put up in 1995 by Brooke Sandahl and Doug Phillips. The topo can be found on p.233 with the FA info on p.448.
