Rock Climbing: Trad / Re: Wavelength post crux bolt

I also can't see how it could have come unscrewed and fell off on it's own.

Weirder things have happened... long way to go to steal a hanger don't ya think? Let's not grab our pitchforks just yet ;)

I got some extra hangers if you want to run up there with me sometime this week? Evening mission?

Does anyone have any idea why the post crux bolt on Wavelength is missing its hanger??
It must have been removed on purpose. ::)

Trip Reports / Scotland Trip 2018
« Last post by Gunkswest on July 18, 2018, 10:34:22 am »
Spent six weeks in Scotland this spring, the first week with a North Conway luminary.

Climbed at 20+ different places, the best of which were the sea stacks and the sea cliffs on Skye and Lewis. For rock climbing in Scotland, May is the month to go.

Also got to see some old friends such as Paul Ross (founder of IME and IMCS in North Conway), Pete Long (who worked as a guide for Paul at IMCS in 1980/81), Richard McHardy (also worked as a guide for Paul at IMCS and together they did the first British ascent of the Salathe Wall), Hamish McInnes (inventor of Terrordactyl ice tools), etc.

Longer article to appear in December 2018 AMC Appalachia Journal.

Great trip.

Climbing NOT (Bitch & moan, Politics) / Boating?
« Last post by ralbert20 on July 16, 2018, 11:23:29 am »
When it is too hot to climb, Amy and I go out on the boat and ski, wakeboard, and surf. Yes, you read the last part right - wake surf behind the inboard. (look it up, it's awesome) So, the question I have for all of you, is; are any of you interested in coming out with us? We are often short on partners, and need a spotter/ spotters. The next time it is going to be >85 on a Saturday, send me a message here.

I am getting back into trad after about 2 years off and am very comfortable on 5.8/5.9s. I am free a lot of Tuesdays, Fridays, and weekends. Let me know if this works for you. I have a full trad rack and rope. - Calder
