Enjoyed reading that Ridgerunner.

I really wish Al would implement a "Hide all posts from "x" feature".  LL leaves shit smears on almost every decent post here.

Other areas such as the rock climbing up at kinsman notch. Just imagine going climbing in a beautiful area and not seeing anyone else for the entire day ! Other areas like the Sugarloafs and dozens of other areas out there. Nice to have a guide book when you have a limited amount of time to climb.

I go to now read Bag11's ramblings again because they is so funny then I join Ed's "you are a joke" group. ??


please don't mis-understand me; i don't think Lucky "is a joke,"  but that he's a "joker…"

he's making a "joke" and the "joke'" is that everyone falls for it.

The confusion about weight is more a physic consideration than a climbing situation. And there is more to learn.

1) The only one here who is confused is you!
2) We certainly will not learn anything from you!
3) You need a good Junior High school general science class to learn the basic terms such as
    weight, mass, density, and volume!

LL-Did they kick you out of Quebec and send you here to torture us?

Very sad to hear.  I ran into him once during a summer I was working up there, and we were both top rope soloing on cathedral after work.  From the few minutes I talked to him, he seemed like a great member of the community. My thoughts go out to his friends and family in the area.

Is there any news of the cause?  This is something I have enjoyed doing, and plan on doing in the future.  I would really appreciate any details to make sure I am as safe as possible. 

Again my condolences.  He was an inspirational climber.

Weight is the force that is generated by a given mass in a gravitational field. Which is why your weight changes when on the moon, while your mass remains constant.

The confusion about weight is more a physic consideration than a climbing situation. Weight can be define in two way

One think is certain it is a force of 900N on a person of 100 puonds, or 50 kilogram, will move that person higher than if it is a person of 176 pounds or 80 Kg.

If a climber received the 900 N from over is head like in an overhanging situation, he will move up and the risk of injury will be lower than if he receive the force side way. with an angle of 45 degree, the belayer will have problem to stay in position.

If a belayer weight 100 pounds and received a force side way of 900 N, he will move on a longer distance than an other guy of 176 pounds and the same force side way.

Other interesting thing is that a hand grip of 50 pounds and of 25 pounds will change the sleapage of the rope accros the belay device. some one with a strong hand grip most use a device with less friction so he can gave slack. Light weight person with weak hand grio most have a device with a lot of friction. for example, the munter hitch is not good to belay a leader because he his too strong.

And there is more to learn.

I sent Ed an email, but he didn't respond back. Perhaps he already knew about the accident thru other sources.

Thanks Steve. That campfire at Indian Creek pasture with you and Brian and that huge crowd you guys had was probably the best social event I've ever been to in my life. The one where Jim Donini was telling the story about eating the boiled monkeys in South America.

both gates should always face away from direction of travel...
I am just into my second season of doing this.  Until about 3 or 4 years ago, the prevailing thought was the orientation of the top (unflipped) biner did not matter.  That has changed with updated results and info from the field.

Petzl “tech pages” have been pointing out this hazard for at least 8 years, but I realize not everyone geeks out on Petzl catalogues like me :)
