  4. Colin Haley Slideshow - BCGear Eugene 11/8

    How was the event? Unfortunately I couldn't make it.
  5. Moving to Corvallis next month to attend OSU. I'm looking for new climbing partners. Hit me up if interested.
  6. REI is changing their return policy...

    I'm surprised it took this long. I'm guessing backcountry.com will follow in the near future. REI will probably have more returns than ever this near and take a hit on gross sales. Part of me sees where they are coming from...people may buy an ultralight item, tear the fabric during normal use, and claim it's defective. That's bullshit. But say you purchase an expensive pair of climbing shoes, use them 5 times leaving them in great condition, store them in a clean closet etc. and the soles delam. 54 weeks after purchase. That may be another deal. I have had this happen with sandals before and I will never buy from this sandal company again. I'm my limited experience, adhesive failure seems to be a legitimate reason for limited use returns after >1y. Others may disagree.

  10. Dynamic Rope Shelf Life

    +1 for MountainGear.com. I just got off the phone with their CS dept. I spoke to someone who actually climbs and they were more than happy to exchange the rope for me. I will be buying from them again.
  11. Dynamic Rope Shelf Life

    To answer my own question...I found this on the bottom of the rope inspection log... Attention : These are average lifetimes in use, a rope could be destroyed during its first use. Proper storage between uses is essential. The lifetime of the rope in use must never exceed 10 years. The total maximum lifetime (storage before use + lifetime in use) is thus limited to 13 years.
  12. Dynamic Rope Shelf Life

    I just received a rope I had purchased from a PNW retailer. The BW 9.4 DD 70m rope was manufactured in Dec. 2007. I have never seen a rope on the shelf in any shop that is 5 years old. I have never purchased a rope that was more than 2 years old. I am a little preturbed and I am considering sending it back. I know Sterling Ropes give a 10 year shelf life for their products. Any thoughts?
