If you don't mind I'd like to try to use one as a NEC home page pic. can you send me the originals to al AT NEClimbs DOT com... of course I will give credit as due...

support the request.

adventure climbing was one of my first post two or three years ago. No competition to keep the integrity of the cliff and the solemnity of the night.

I am planning on being there this weekend if the weather plays along, but it is not looking so great atm. If I manage to get my work done, I will try to head up Thursday night, as Friday looks nice.

If this weekend doesn't work out, any time, just let me know when you can go a bit in advance. Rob, shoot me your number if you get a chance. I don't seem to have it in my phone and I can't find your card.

Having a big loop of slack in anticipation of a clip is a sign of being lazy and NOT paying attention.  Anticipate.  And MOVE your body in to give slack quickly - non of this fiddle faddling of pulling it out through the device.  That's in the sport context.  How about when you are x number of pitches up, darkness almost here, storm coming in, anchor is crap, leader out of sight - in that context maybe not short roping isn't the highest priority.  Context.

Yes "pay attention" sums it up - just remember that there isn't one answer that fits all.

There are other ways in that take more time  :(  Maybe ....?  At least there isn't talus to really screw up your ankle

I leave for the Sierras on Aug 10th so I was being a little extra cautious with the ankle but it feels pretty good now. Give me a call Mark and lets get out there.

The official time right now adhering to the above rules is 25:27. Also this is the time for thin air, not the record for longest time in the cathedral brothel ;)

So you get trad belayers short roping and breaking climbers ankles on the steep stuff.  You get sport belayers letting climbers ground/ledge out all the time.
Sport or trad, there is certainly such as thing as too much slack when the leader is at the second or third piece of pro.
It sounds like the guy who grounded out in Bobbi's piece was not up high and the belayer had too much slack out.

Yeah - Maine Beer Lunch is a damn fine IPA. Not sure where you'er at but if you can find Stoneface Brewing IPA give it a try. They're in Newington NH - I know they fill growlers and keg beer but not sure if they bottle or can. With that said - its as good if not better than Lunch!
