Its possible, but if you are really torquing them you might bend them permanently. But if they do bend you can pound them back. They will be more prone to bending in the future though.

I have only bent picks when only the tip was in contact an I was really reefing on them doing shallow stienpulls. It hink BD picks cost half of what a grivel or Petzl pick cost, and the picks aren't tool specific A nd ther is only one bolt to drop if you need to do a field change. And you can use another pick to tighten and loosen the bolt.

Don't take that as liberty to run your mouth/keyboard in here

Sadly Grivel Picks cost more, but they aren't as tools specific as many think.
It was 26 C today and you guys are talking about ice tools!! I'm ashamed of you all
Is there something wrong?
I don't see anything wrong.
Just needed a second opinion
So who is going to Ouray?

Are you?

I'd love to dig out my rusty tools and head to Ouray this year, but realistically I reckon 2010 would be more achievable.

The roof needs to be done sometime. I was thinking this fall, but maybe we will have to wait until spring.


Nursery?

Maybe.

I'm wondering about the Festival in particular. I was thinking about applying to climb in the comp, but you need to have someplace reserved before you do that. They don't tell you until Dec. if you are in or not. Honestly if I was going to fork out the money to rent a room for myself I'd rather go when it isn't so crowded. So I'm trying to find someone I can bum a place on the floor from if I was accepted. I'd pay my share.

I need to find a place to stay first, then I need to buy a membership to Ouray, then I need to apply. Then wait and wait.

I wonder how many people apply? I think there was something close to 50 people who climbed in it last year. I'd never win unless they had devisions, but it would be cool to do. I think I could do okay. We met a couple of guys at St.Alban last Dec. who were climbing in it. Will was good, but not like "OMG that guy can climb!". His buddy was definitely nothing to write home about. I think I could climb as well or better than buddy and I was still using my heavy boots with Sabertooths. Maybe he was just climbing poorly?


Actually Will can really climb, but sport mixed really isn't his thing.

usually stay with a friend who has reserved the same room every year for the past six or seven years. I missed the past fest, but it seems to me they were talking about moving it across the street. I'll look into it. Check the 2009 ouray fest thread, I'm sure there's some rooms already spoken for there.
