      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Does the humidity at areas like exit 32, 38, or index tweak em' on the instillation? I've heard some evidence along those lines like they are best for dry climates or low humidity days?

Mfg part specific: but no, check link #3. Some of these can be installed and achieve full strength during wet conditions.

Of course.

 

BTW, Gorilla Tap seems to be the schizz to keep the glue in. I suppose you could use Orings as well, but any overrun glue would still be a visible mess, whereas you can rip the tape off when the glue dries and have a clean look on the rock.
