Article: Closure Threat Becomes Reality at Torrent
wow, some climbers can really be idiots. we had a similar situation at a VERY popular (and really good) crag here in slovenia, but we were fortunate that some climbers have a really good relationship with the landowner so we only had to change the access trails. bul, like in RRG, the reason was climbers being disrespectfull.

well, i hope she makes it. crampons are dangerous if youre not used to them.

Article: The Zephyr: 10.3mm of Wholesome Petzl Rope
4 out of 5 stars nice review. im in a market for a new rope, but it will be a bit skinnier than this. definitely sub-10mm. probably another mamut infinity.

Article: Helicopter Rescue Possible On Everest Summit Soon

Article: Sterling Nano Editorial Review
4 out of 5 stars lol, got a good laugh on the last comment, jay.

and im really interested in how it holds up after some time. it sounds to me sterling found the balance between lightness and durability. and it makes me wish even more that petzl would finally pull their head out of the sand and make a grigri for 9-10mm cords.

5 out of 5 stars wow, those arc’teryx harnesses really look slick. im thinking of replacing my current harness (its not worn yet, but i am starting to look into replacement options) and if i find them on this side of the pond, they look like a really strong contender.

Article: The Huber Brothers Conquer El Cap
1 out of 5 stars who was bashing the hubers? all the bashing i can see is bashing of this article, which, to tell the truth, is not exactly stellar, just some sponsor messages. the fact that they did set a speed record is not as important as the fact that they kept the time with their new shiny suunto watches ;)

Article: Adidas Acquires Five-Ten
5.10 is going down the drain... :/
