maybe they eliminated because so many of us hated it and cut it off? my new pair had no metal strap on it. last two pairs of stingers had the toe strap and i cut it opff.

Climbing Gear Q & A / black diamond cyborg crampons
« Last post by dp on April 12, 2017, 01:36:21 PM »
I was looking at black diamond cyborg crampons on their web sit and noticed that they have eliminated the metal toe piece that the heel strap interconnect to, I purchased a pair last year and there doesn't appear to be any difference from last years model to this one, any one have info if about this and is it ok to remove that piece?  dp

Conditions / Artist's Bluff Standard Direct - Rock Fall
« Last post by rbirk on April 12, 2017, 08:21:51 AM »
See post from a couple of days ago: https://www.mountainproject.com/v/standard-direct/106029083

"I climbed at Artist's today and there was some rockfall that I think took out almost the whole first pitch of this. A huge block, basically everything on the right side of the corner on the first pitch has fallen. The block that fell reached almost all the way to Brass Balls, but I think that route is still intact."

As of Sunday (4/9) most of cathedral appeared to be free of ice, except for poor ice on the north end. I spent a few hours on the prow and was stopped at the 3rd pitch due to some gushing water. Climbed a bit at echo roof area on white horse, also very wet. Heard some big chunks come flying off down the slabs. Still quite a bit of snow at the base of those cliffs, made for some wet approach shoes. Here's hoping the warm weather this week melts the snow and gives us some dry cliffs, I'm ready for rock season.

Has the warmer weather and rain started to clean up the cliffs in the Conway area? I'm guessing Monday will still be too early to get out up there, but a man can dream can't he?

not even close. I was in the yard yesterday and you can hear stuff falling off Cathedral. we haven't had enough really warm weather yet. there is also still lots of stuff on Whitehorse. the only places remotely safe to climb rock is Humphrey's or Sundown IMO.
