    NE Fly

    It is a kernmantle rope, and I know a lot of climbers did not like it for DdRT, but I'm wondering how it would work for SRT and the RW? it is not expensive and looks like it would do the job well in that application?

    Pantin positioning?

    Where do you guys position it on your ankle? Mine kicks off all the time unless I have a biner in the lock-off hole. Maybe it is just my bio-mechanical position? my thighs are short and huge, so it is not that much of an upward movement and my hamstring and calf meet. It is a PIA to keep...

    Rope Wrench Ruminations

    Well? it has been 3 months or so of climbing on the Singing Tree Rope Wrench so I feel I've learned enough to talk a bit about it's pros and cons. First off, it is a complete switch in climbing mentality, this is the single biggest hurdle that climbers coming from DdRT to SRT have to deal...

    Bowline Cinch for SRT

    Been trying it out , sometimes you don't want a base-tie, especially if it is a TIP you don't want to over-stress, or a scenario where lowered pieces will get fouled in the base-tie. How many of you back up your running bowline? honestly... I tie it with a good-length tail, but practicing...

    Rope Wrench Methods?

    Okay, So I have been using mine a lot, love it, well thought out and makes working in some situations easier, but not all... I wish there were a way to make it , in certain situations a bit more like DRT. For instance, working a down-sloping limb , like on a big elm. Coming back in on DRT, you...

    is there anything more evil incarnate?

    Then zing-it 1.75... man, no matter how carefully i flake, big flakes, little flakes, medium flakes, it still snarls worse than any line I have used. I love it, but in a very love/hate kinda' way. anybody else feel this way?

    Petzl Ecrin Roc

    Yeah, it may not be the prettiest helmet out there, but man, I should have bought it sooner! The fit is incredible, with the 2 wheels adjusters you can adjust the nape strap and the headband individually. It is the only helmet that fits to a tee. I have a vertex vent and had a Kask, neither...
