      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!

WTB: Silent Partner

Recommended Posts

I know, I know, Gorilla tape across the pie hole is the cheaper way to do this, and I've been tempted, but that goes both ways.

 

You know who you are. You hemorrhaged money for that thing and no longer use it. Anyone out there willing to part with theirs?

Most 'big name' soloists on Supertopo (Ammon and Kate) use an unmodified grigri for aid soloing. And while the SP is no doubt the 'safest' option for free lead rope soloing, I could never come to terms with it as it's too bulky and slow. The Edelrid Eddy is just so much cleaner and faster, but to each his own and YMMV.

Once far enough off above nearest thing to hit, the shorter your tie off loops the less the device matters, I reckon.

interesting - NOT the pink plastic blow-up doll i was expecting :)

 

just trying to help a negro out, obviously he's unsatisfied with his not so silent partner… i figured a whole game change would be healing :pagetop:

You're right for solo aid; free climbing is a different story.
