Kenny, don't worry i have a pair, I only have two problems I'd need a very large crack (don't know of any near me) to anchor them and I'd prefer not hang off of them, might hurt a little bit.

"Mechrist, you meant 3-4 minutes, right?"...




I'm thinking more along the lines of 3-4 SECONDS...

Never clipped a bolt my first four years climbing.Pulling gear/placing gear,that was it.Started clippin' about my fifth year.Almost got killed sport climbing about twenty years later.Stupid,stupid mistake!Got complacent.It's all inherently dangerous when on vertical terrain.I think a solid mentor is about the best thing you can do.Main thing:Don't get complacent.

Andrew Bisharat (? sp) wrote a book about sport climbing. I have seen it and it has everything you need. Good luck.

Reed, this seems like a VERY funny post...considering the hijacking we have given your thread.

Sorry.

Sort of.

"This spring we ought to get together and put that route up."...

I agree!!!...

I have a bunch of stuff I had eyeballed in the South Platte that no doubt remain untouched...

and I am pretty sure this season I will be healthy enough to pull it off...

Let's do it!!!...

Fuk YEAH!!!...



EDITED:

a bit of a hike...

But not real bad...

I hope the OP has a thick skin and a good sense of humor. I'd be stoked if he or she checked in and let us know how it's going. Start a thread and you'll get good answers, mostly. Some people will give you sh#t, but it's easy to separate the wheat from the chaff.

I'm in.

I assume based on the thread they are sport climbs. Or bolted trad lines...
