Article: Balancing Act
5 out of 5 stars Knieveltech -- how about buying ad space to flog your own misinformed opinions? Nowhere in this article was there any "flogging of wares." The book wasn't mentioned; he didn't even use the term "Warrior's Way." This was not free advertising, it was an article on some very practical ways to improve your climbing.

Article: Access Threatened at Sunset Park (TN)
You must really dig the X Files, Doug.

Article: Red Rocks: A Climber's Guide Editorial Review
5 out of 5 stars Well-written review. This new guide is very nice, but not perfect (nothing is, I guess). As with other areas I've been to, it was good to have more than one guidebook for cross-referencing; the Swain book helped fill in for some deficiencies in the Handren book, and vice versa.

Article: Deliberate Transitions are Ambiguous
5 out of 5 stars Sorry to rain on your parade, pug, but insights on the mental aspects of climbing from Arno are far more interesting to most of us than dictionary definitions and other pedantry from a windbag computer programmer.

Article: The Mental Toughness Error
5 out of 5 stars Another great article on the subtleties of mental training. Thanks!

Article: The SCC & Yellow Bluff
5 out of 5 stars The really cool thing here is the domino effect: the purchase of Boat Rock helped pave the way for buying Jamestown, which in turn probably made Yellow Bluff possible. And once YB is in climber hands, I hear rumors that yet another domino will fall before long . . .
