I climb way harder than Honnold and in fact if he posted here I would just say it like this:

Hey you chicken legged 20 something year old barrel chested ape man I can haul 4th class better than you and for sure climb 5.7 in better style wanna bet I know some hot chicks that are way harder 5.8 climbers than you, and they have given birth to several kids.

Oh yeah bet you don't call that thank god ledge anymore, more like WTF ledge huh!

Anyway guys got mad skill wish him the best and how many points was that in GNAR?

Ha, a bit ironic that the guy famous for not using a rope is raising money for better protection for the rest of us!

Irony Bump!

It charged my account 4 times. Is there a contact to have this fixed?

I contacted them and they fixed it.

Please go to the event and Donate.... Donate.... Donate!!!!



I need more anchor material & bolts to continue the much needed work on the Eastside.



So.... Go & DONATE!

Here is just some of what your money goes towards replacing (Total of 92 assy for 46 Anchors at the A-Hills):

OLD

(Many of these pulled entirely out, all five pieces intact, with only a single light tug on the funkness, btw)


NEW

(Mussy's with 3 X 1/2" SS Five Piece Powers)

Yikes Chief, 5-piece pulling with light tugs? Looks like glue-ins may need to be in the A-Hills future, particularly for the grainy anchors. Even some bomber rock in Josh has really soft grainy rock at the anchor (for instance Double Cross)...

More items just donated by Metolius:
 hangboard
 Rock Rings

Many, unfortunately, were "Over Drilled", Greg.

As you know, over drilling, diameter and length wise will cause many issues that deteriorate the bolts integrity to almost nill.
