"Does wisdom perhaps appear on the earth as a raven which is inspired by the smell of carrion?"
I'll take FWN quotes for a 100, Alex...
Didn't Chouinard say, "if you bring bivouac gear, you will use it."
Practise run on full Imlay in 7:43? Yowser.
If Jared got pysched...I think he'd do the gig in under 20 hours. He's convinced he could run out Kolob to the TOS and still be sub one day.

"Have you seen my car keys?"
Bad old joke.
OBGYN...there's a lot of openings in that field, but, you got to go into the hole to make a living...
(Really sorry, its my favorite joke)

Its not just Utah. And, I really think part of the reason canyoneering is popular, is, that its a group activity. Its social. Same as the bouldering aspect of climbing. Sure, you see small groups...
Ha ha. How's that, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
Shane's a plagerizer! Was hoping he'd respond...
Good to "see" Stevee B on here, even if it was a not attributed quote...
Yep. Pretty good comparison. I know folks who prefer cams for cracks to sports climbs. At Indian Creek, you can keep essentially a top rope above you by pushing an overhead cam with the rope...
That's right! And, when you get to the top, you can continue with your lack of skills by doing the very activity that is the essence of canyoneering: rappelling!
Yeah, the crack is fun....
Kinda the beauty of bolts, in a sense. Easy to remove and patch the holes.
Now, how do you fix those rope grooves? How 'bout all the material dispaced, over and over again, to build an unnatural...
De facto ethics. Is that like moral culpability?
Insert your laughing emoticon here...
Another close encounter...running the trail at dusk from the summit of Mount Tammany in New Jersey, in the Delaware Water Gap. Jumped a water bar and about landed on this feller. Huge snake. Was...
Cotalus lepidus, methinks. Rock rattlesnake. One of the protected species of rattlesnakes in Arizona. Darn near stepped on this feller in Cochise Stronghold, on the way to climb What's My Line a...
Doesn't look like a water knot, but, the webbing looks tied EDK style, maybe?
Where was that? Purty snake, and, doesn't look like the great basin variety we get here in the Wasatch. Nevada?

[Trip Report] Fun video! Nice editing.
Fun video! Nice editing.
Wasn't just a crappy piton that was removed. I believe the history was that a bolt was placed to back up the piton anchor, then, removed and replaced by a more robust bolt. Then the entire anchor was...
I'm not arguing "equal" culpability, just that there is "some" culpability. In some cases, it may exceed, equal, or be less than. All up for debate.
Are you your brother's keeper? Or not? You turn...
I know our local graffiti removal guy here for the SLCA brought a power scrubber which worked well. Had a Honda generator that he hooked up too.
Wire brush and some of that prepsolve (?) orange...
One of the degrees of culpability would be your intent to harm or injure. But, there's varying degrees of culpability. Lower on the blame game scale are being reckless and negligent.
"But, your honor, he opened the "moral culpability" door."
Well, you know, there's degrees of culpability. Cause and effect. I've never done Constrychnine, nor, was I...
Nope. But, folks who promote certain technques, remove bolted anchors, and, leave minimal single strands of webbing... Do they?
Funny...got a signed copy of SN's. Talked to the publisher at OR and he pointed out a few folks that were in it...
