one word to describe the hangboard - sweet!!!!!

it's about time somebody made a hangboard with character - the sloper/font action looks sweet.

that said, it's all a bit too pricey for me.

Article: National Park Service Seeking Input for Arches Climbing Plan

I think it's pretty obvious to everyone that Dean's selfishness is at the heart of the this (not that a management plan is all bad) and I have no respect for Climbing magazine - they seem to be so afraid of hurting Dean's feelings that they can't be objective in their reporting. They never reported the stunt in the first place and the way that they dance around it now is plain embarrassing.

Article: Osprey Talon 33 Editorial Review
1 out of 5 stars I find it odd that we need "guest reviewers" given the number of people on this site that would be willing to fill the role. Moreover, because "guests" aren't members/contributors to the forum they don't have the same level of accountability for their opinions nor do their opinions carry the same weight.

If you're going to have a note at the bottom that says "full disclosure" then disclose why it's a guest reviewer. The lack of disclosure hints that Osprey gave you a girls pack and you gave it to a friend in exchange for the review.
