  1. for sale Climbing & Cycling Books

    Sent you a message re: lots of books.
  2. What is your opinion on the Treadwall?

    I got a used one recently but haven't set it up yet. I assumed it would be monotonous, but I'm OK with that. I need to modify my garage ceiling to make it fit. I'll try to update the thread after 10k feet of climbing. Eric Horst mentions it in his book "Climbing for Training" and he has one. Josh Wharton and his wife have and use one according to Training for the New Alpinism. Sasha Dijiulian I think has one too. I can probably claim to be the weakest climber in NA (the world?) to have their own treadwall.
  3. for sale Scarpa Maestro Mid Eco rock shoes 44.5

    Great shoes. Consider USPS Flat Rate Envelope for around $8 if you need to ship.
  4. Still looking! I would also consider green or the bright blue, really any color!
  5. idea Cable bindings for Mountaineering Boots

    Scarpa makes the Maestrale and Atomic makes the Hawx in a 32 Mondo, which should equate to a euro 50. But if you truly need a 34 that is going to be tough.

  10. Solo TR Setups?

    This is a great thread, thanks to all who contributed their many years and pitches of experience. Seems the consensus is two microtraxions attached through the belay loop. Has anyone have any updates or tweaks in the last 5 years?
  11. Still looking! I am also looking for another older Patagonia R1 hoody, I got rid of my last one and now regret it!
  12. for sale Feathered Friends Vireo Sleeping Bag

    Message sent, curious what length this is. Thanks!
  13. review Old Dyneema Sling Strength

    Well sure slings are "cheap" but if you replace 12 60cm and ~3 120cm runners it adds up! The 8mm contact slings always felt like floss, 10-12mm is still pretty trim (especially compared with nylon) and probably doesn't degrade as quickly as the 8mm. The 12mm also seem to be a bit cheaper as you can get some brands like Singing Rock or CAMP etc on sale.
  14. idea MYOG - Gear mod's and personal creations.

    Similar to MThorman's tether, I have these coil leashes for nut tools which were robbed from a set of radios. Many years ago I lost a nut tool into a talus field several hundred feet below and it convinced me to use a tether (and definitely have one on my loaner nut tool!). Its quite nice if you take a nut out at a difficult stance that you can just leave the nut on the draw and rope, drop the nut tool onto the tether and climb through to a better stance to rack them both. Although I now use the 'fancy' Wild Country nut tool with a broad base to hit with your palm on stubborn nuts, I still think the basic BD nut tool is a great one. I added some 1/4" black fuel line held on with electrical tape to make the bottom softer when banging on it with your palm and it works quite well. The nut tool doesn't work as well for opening bottles with that side after but you can always lever a cap off with the tip of the tool I also sewed some small (3mm?) accessory cord loops onto generic Well Lamont leather work gloves to make racking them easier between belays. I have been really impressed with how well these gloves for cold belays, long days, even ski touring for much less than the BD or Petzl gloves.
