Two years ago I did Ending Crack, 5.7. A great finger to hands crack, but with foot holds on the face.

Anyrate, none of the pitches are short enough to rap with one rope, so I'll break out my lightly used but old Mammot 11 for the tag line and bringing up the 3rd.

11mm??

Good lord man, how old is that thing? I just checked their site and they don't even sell them anymore.

Around 15 years old, so its only 50M. I got it on sale at REI before I really needed a new rope. Its a dry treated rope and was only lightly used. But at the time I decided a 2nd rope was a good idea. So its in really good shape. However, since its so old I don't lead on it. Since I don't lead on it I don't climb on it, as most of the climbing is lead to an anchor and TR off that.
Plus, my brother bought another Mammut dry 50 shortly thereafter. So I really have two hardly used 15 yo 11mm 50M ropes. Crazy
My origonal rope is a Chounard non dry, way fuzy and well used 50. But I cut into two for mountainiering. Although it only saw a couple of uses at that. I'd get a new rope if I needed a mountain rope now.
Anyrate, I'd love to have another 60M Axis, except in blue to contrast with my red one.
15yo????
AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *runz away*

I'd TR it in a heartbeat.

Thats it.
Tthey are in good shape, not beat up at all, hardly climbed on heavy 11mm.

I wouldn't worry about that rope at all. I'd worry about belaying it though. I don't think I've ever even belayed an 11mm outside of some gym ropes, and perhaps 10.5s that've fuzzed out to 11mm.

hip belay ftw.

How about a really fuzzy 11?

Again, mental image of climbing with a garden hose.Sly

I'm in the same boat but instead of losing it, It'll be destroyed at work within a few weeks.

I've only ever found one phone that can last longer than 8 months in my possession.

I was all geared up to go climbing this weekend but then I started to feel like I might be getting sick and I was supposed to crash with a friend who has two kids so called it off.

Turns out I wasn't getting sick at all. Now I'm bored with nothing to do all weekend. Fuckin hell.

I actually did go climbing yesterday but it's just the local spot so it doesn't really count. Might have to go back for a second helping tomorrow despite that fact. Whos counting anyway, right?

Went to Smith Rocks yesterday and climbed with some friends! Had to project some routes because it was sprinkling on and off. Got to work in a route a little, and then looked at the radar and saw a storm was just about to hit. Right as we got to the car it started raining really hard. Need to get back out to Smith Rocks and climb because the style of climbing is really hard there for me.

Yeah I've been pretty happy with it so far. Had my current one for almost two years and some of the buttons are starting to act a bit funny sometimes but it's lasting pretty good.

For being only twenty minutes away, I got no complaints. The closest real cimbing beyond that is 2 hours away so I'm kind of lucky to have it.

there is every kind of route there. The climbing just requires you to find the right places to put your feet instead of climbing straight on. It's hard because most of the footholds on more moderate and harder routes are really small.
