On that trajectory, the bag landed on the aft end of the longboard which............was then propelled into the sylvan area behind. Noise frightened dog; dog yelp scared Ais and yet all were howlin' with laffter ( dog included ) 10 sec afterwards.

Search for longboard continues.


But then again whudoo eye know ? Wuzzi'nt there :-)

Trying to keep the Big Mike stoke going on here with some old climbing pics. I've never taken pictures while climbing in Squamish so was surprised to find these ones buried in a cabinet. I totally forgot about this event ever taking place,early Alzheimer's I guess. It was either Jim Brennan taking these pics or my New Zealand friend John McCallum in 1989 or 1990.
Rock shoe quiz, what are the shoes we are wearing?

I never did own any Lycra, I found Zellers track pants far more stylish.

sure there are trees around mike.. it is squamish after all hehe

the thing i'm worried about is that the double chain links are misleading. A noob might be confused and believe the two chain links represent a redudant anchor system when in reality the staple is a single point of protection. If these staples are in fact breaking at 600lb's of force this would be catastrophic.

I think a 600lb climber could have catastrophic forces on any anchor.

That's less that three times my weight. How far would I have to fall to exert 600lbs? We need Ed Hartouni in here. Paging Dr Hartouni!! ;)

sorry, it's my monster workout night (for me) 2 hrs of gym crack climbing at Planet Granite Sunnyvale followed by 1.5 hrs of Vinyasa Flow yoga (which is doing great things for me...) so I'm toast right now...

Richard has the treatise:
http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1820554&msg=1820970#msg1820970
His recommended calculator:
http://jt512.dyndns.org/impactcalc


your weight? lets take 170 lbs
if the rope modulus is 14kN m/m
600lb force is 2.67 kN

that's a force factor of 0.15, so if you are out 100 ft and you fall a total of 15 ft you experience a 600lb force...

but I'm terrible at getting this right... especially late...

a 600lb climber falling the same distance feels a 6.91 kN force, the anchor a 13.8 kN force, which is getting up there into equipment failure mode.

If you're a Big Guy/Gal, you might not want to take a leader fall...
