Climbing NOT (Bitch & moan, Politics) / "the bug report"
« Last post by HTH on Today at 03:07:55 pm »
A word of warning:  the bug report is not accurate.  I've been out on the rock multiple times over the last two weeks; not only are they swarming, they are BITING!

General Climbing / Climbing Instructor Sentenced in Tito Traversa’s Death

I'm not sure what to think about this. Especially since it was Tito's mother who was the direct cause of the accident!

Climbing Gear Q & A / Re: What size SDS is best for drilling granite?
« Last post by Banch on May 16, 2018, 04:39:41 pm »
hey y'all just wanted to update.  I ended up buying a Boshe Bulldog 36V 1 1/8" SDS Plus.   It seems that the SDS 3/4" is a lighter tool but the 1 1/8" is more standard/common and thus getting bits will be easier and cheaper.  I think my local gear shop, Outdoor Gear Exchange, sells bits that are for SDS 1 1/8" so it makes sense to go with that size. 

Just out of curiosity, are there other reasons for climbers to go with something other than 1 1/8"  SDS size when considering buying a drill?

Maybe if your going to also use the drill for other projects outside of rock climbing?  I was also thinking about re-sale of the drill once I grid bolt my local cliff.  (just kidding)  But re-sale is a consideration.  along with the ease of getting cheaper bits seems like 1 1/8" is the way to go.  Thoughts?  thanks. Banch.

Climbing Gear Q & A / What size SDS is best for drilling granite?

Hello.  I'm shopping for a rotary hammer drill.  Leaning toward the 36v Boshe Bulldog.  I noticed that it comes in different sizes SDS.  A lightweight model has a 3/4" SDS but others have 1" and up to 1 1/8 and 1 1/2 inch SDS.  I'll be drilling in granite, if that matters.  Also, what is the difference between SDS and SDS Plus?  thanks

Partner Exchange / Re: North Conway area partners

I'm available after work weekdays and sometimes on weekends.  Climbing a grade lower than you right now, but only because I'm out of practice.  Will be coming up from Tamworth so would rather not go north of Humphry's.

I'm looking for rock climbing partners in the North Conway area for after work midweek and maybe weekends. Usually comfortable leading 5.8 trad, trying to get comfy on 5.9, can't climb anything harder than 5.10.

Maybe local kids could use the extra money? Or does this need to be done by professionals?
