oh also:

any guides out there that have issues communicating on multi-pitch routes?

I've been on routes that were a bitch to yell back and forth on and if I had a couple goobers with me I would have been a little uncomfortable sending them off. Not to mention they may have been a little discomforted by the difficulty hearing.

Actually there is such a thing. http://www.rei.com/product/608751

That's interesting. Any idea if this works better than the old ski hand warmers that were also reusable? While they were reusable, they weren't nearly as good on the second try as the first, and on the third as the second, etc...

yeah, I had the same gripe about those "reusable" condoms that Trojan came out with a few years ago. Anyone remember those?

Please tell me you're joking. That is disgustingCrazy

I'd google it but I'm at work and I'm afraid....

design an ice screw drill and some sort of racking system that allows 1 handed operation(maybe something like the ice flute). if you could make placing screws faster and easier, i'd give it a try.

Here's another nugget from the RC.com brain trust for you to chew on.

Build me a rock climbing specific Hammer Drill. My Boch is WAY too heavy, and the thought of bolting on lead with it scares the crap out of me. Make one that I can operate with one hand, easy to carry and manipulate. Perhaps the batter (which accounts for most of the weight) could be made separate from the drill. You know, so I could carry it on my harness/back pack.

Now that I think of it, just make me an adapter so I can take the drill and battery I already have and carry them separately when ever/ how ever I want.

I can think of a few people who would buy one of those.

This gets my vote so far. I know you can convert by adding a cord, but having something that doesn't void the warranty would be great.

Make sure the extended battery cord is like the old phone coiled cables so climbers don't get tangled in the cord when not in use.

Maybe I shouldn't have a 36 volt drill.

Some climbers just carry radios. I find those a bit heavy and the batteries not reliable.

Since I already have a rope between my partners and I, I add two cans to the rack. When we have trouble communicating, we simply attach the cans to the rope, pull tight, and voila, instant phone. Wink
