bedellympian Posted June 1, 2015 Share Posted June 1, 2015 Disclaimer: This is not a page for aid haters, if you'd rather free climb get off your lazy butt and go do it. I have been alpine and free climbing for a few years now but would really like to get some experience aid climbing and either do Liberty Crack or some other grade V this year. I have tried aiding a 5.9 crack with a friend's aid setup once. I have done plenty of french-free and random stand on a sling BS, just screwing around at the crag and in the alpine. Really I want this experience just so that I can have another tool to push my alpine climbing. Questions I have for those who might know... 1. I know I need etriers and theoretically two daisies... is there any other MANDATORY gear I should get for C1? I have plenty of gear for trad climbing, lockers, etc. 2. Smith is my local crag so I have done plenty of A0 and avoided the A4 shit shows that seem to be everything else. If I was going to go do an intro multi-pitch aid climb, where should I go? Index? Anywhere closer to Central Oregon? 3. Anyone want to do a little mentoring in late June or July weekends? Thanks in advance... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
