General Climbing / Re: WTF!?

One of the harsh realitys of ageing is that often our best climbs turn into casual outings for the younger generation despite or perhaps because of their poor sport climbing ethics ;)

Pretty bold and damn fine climbing. Amazed at what gets done early these days! And I was happy with getting up a thin LHMW yesterday!

Lost & Found / Lost Ice Climbing Ax on Lincolns Throat
« Last post by jeffrey on November 22, 2014, 11:44:13 PM »
I lost my ice climbing ax on the Lincolns Throat trail on Saturday November 22, 2014.  I dropped it while climbing the first steep pitch but could not lower myself to retrieve it.  If anyone finds it please contact me at 603-986-0473.  It’s worth a case of beer as a reward if you are interested in that.  Thanks…Jeffrey Shutak, North Conway, NH.

i think Luke actually thinks he is helping beginners. It seems like he thinks he is important and that beginners look to him for advise?
I feel that he has a verry narrow minded belief of what climbing should be :police: So narrow and strict that he can not live up to his own rules......
hopefully the beginners are smart enough to not believe everything they read on the internet ;)

shit man i wasn't looking to grade cannon, yes it's a serious cliff, as is trad climbing.... i was  trying to put u in a box, u offend, be it your rhetoric or maybe the way u translate ( i email and talk with  french,  russian, and polish climbers none of which have your odd typo's or missconceptions)  your comments on accidents and your opinions come across to a normal person as offensive and help no one.  crap i've grabbed the reigns and headed into no mans land here, for a second i thought i could politely show u where i thought u went wrong, but i don't think u can see.

didn't somebody here belay luke though his onsight of  duet direct, thats prety badass if u've ever been on it and crapped your pants as i did trying to get up that beast, i climb for fun and wonder about luke?

I onsight without falling duet direct. There is two other routes in the same place: hanson echard and fugue. Fugue is very great; 5.9, 5.10, 5.9, 5.10 and 5.9. The hardiest is the top at 5.7, 5.8 where you zigzag to find some thing...friction and it was wet when I did it.

I climb for fun too

John, anyone who has ever climbed with you and TC knows your climbing philosophy.  I've heard it at least a hundred times:  "NEW ROUTES OR NO ROUTES!"
