  1. I believe I remember seeing an Excel spreadsheet (or CSV) posted containing PNW-area crack climbs listed by ascending difficulty. Anyone have a link?

  7. Recommendations for a camera for climbing

    I'd probably do it if it was from a reputable shop who'd take it back with no questions. (And not Craigslist.) I've bought refurbished cameras a couple time through Adorama & B&H - nothing wrong with that, factory re-certified, etc. And at a decent discount. Adorama refurbs

  12. Mammut Monolith GTX

    I bought a pair of Monoliths at Feathered Friends a couple months ago. They seem to aim between the fit of Sportiva and Scarpa, and they fit my feet very well. I've done a little climbing in them. I've got no reason to think that they're anything but high quality. If there's one pair of boots that fits really well among the "around $300" options, your decision is easy. If you think the Monoliths are a little roomy, you might try on the La Sportiva Trango Alp (second ascent has them). These were almost the ticket for me but ended up being too small in the ball of the foot. /newb too
  13. Bought 'em on CC last month. They're too small for me. Size 47. Comes with original La Sportiva insoles. $220 shipped; less for local Seattle pickup. The fellow I bought 'em from said: photos: http://zubterfuge.imgur.com/nepal_47
