Climbing Gear Q & A / Re: Wiregates Not Closing?
« Last post by neiceclimber on Yesterday at 11:19:23 AM » these are the Kincos I was referring to, they have about half the insulation the ones Tradman is referring to. I find them to be about asdexterous and warm as the BD Arc and a little cooler but more dexterous than the OR extrovert. The short cuff can lead to cold wrists. There's no waterproofing, but for 20 bucks a pop I don't mind buying a few every so often as spares to carry and swap when they get wet. I don't know about you, but I have a whole bin full of 60-120$ Climbing specific gloves that were destroyed after a season or didn't work out for me. I've grown tired of paying exorbitant prices for cheaply made cold gloves.

I would bet that HTH/Inferno is the most popular route on the south butt ??

bummer about the hornets man. it's that time of year I guess... talk to Rick W about getting bolts to replace those on B & C. I replaced the 1st bolt on HTH 15 years ago, my first replacement. it was away better than the original, but it was done by hand, so it could be better. last time I did that climb the bolts looked as if they could use some tlc.

IMNSHO many of the climbs in the Valley could use some bolt replacement!

Kinkos are like climbing with boxing gloves on. great for skiing, hikeing, rough construction, grade 3 ice etc.  but really sloppy for hard climbing and any kind of carpentry that requires dexterity.

Went to climb this and the hornets are back.  Luckily didnt find out the hard way.  We climbed brimstone and crosswalk instead.  I think if cross walk was cleaned it would be a great route!  The moves are fun.  Also i think brimstone and crosswalk could use new bolts.  I will gladly go up there and do it.  Have the bolts on hotter been upgraded recently?

Slink: Did I do that w/ you last yr? or was it 2013? Regardless, it was in the last 2 yrs and I remember big Metolius rap hangers at the top, no? Maybe that's what NEAlpine is talking about.

I think when I climbed it yrs back there were pins at the typical pitch 1 anchor below the start of the corner/chimney, but there are bolts there now, as I recall. Is that what you're asking about Nemesis?  I guess folks'll just have to go up there and take a gander.

Come to think about it, maybe I'm not the best source of info on this. Some days I can't remember what day it is and I caught myself writing 2013 on something just yesterday (WTF?). Kinda nice though when you can't remember having climbed a route. It makes it feel like your FA every time. ;D

I thought someone put in some big eye bolts a couple years ago. Did I imagine that?

At some point we sold cam wash & lube but I think any soap is fine if rinsed well, then a drop of the more affordable teflon chain lube and you should be set. If they still act funky expect it to be mechanical and scrap those biner's mechanicalchris ;)

Oh and to stay on topic, use the bike lube that looks like the metolius lube, cheaper and every bike shop carries it.
