Definitely my #14 WC Rock. They always laugh when i bring it and call it a cowbell, but it feels so bomber and fits so nice in the bigger-than-hands-smaller-than-fists cracks they all put their cams in.

Best regards,
JC

i see there a large numbero f beginner posting things here. there is a fundamental issue with this thread-

placing gear seperates you from the flow and energy in the rock. it is only by free soloing can u have the true experience, anything else will be a false perpeciton.

Nice try!
No fish for you!

For me, the crux of your sentence has to be the word "perpeciton". I give up.

I'd have to say my favorite piece of gear, my new ATC XP. I love it! I just started climbing, and its one of my first pieces of gear, along with a BD twistlock biner.

No matter what protection I may place, chances are there's one of those 8mm Mammut slings hanging off it.

Good stuff!

you are quite correct, we should be encouraging beginners to free solo, that way we won't have to queue behind bumblies doing their first lead.

In fact we should link this thread to the when did you first lead, and why did you first lead threads, combining them to become a super thread we can grade as a 36(Ewbank) and then we can all solo the linked cruxes and feel good about ourselves.


What a bunch of bullsh1t!

Favourite pice of gear? stitch plate

u cant argue that my statements above are not true.

TRUTH!
Is there really such a thing? Isn't it all an illusion based on each person's seperate reality?
How can dictate, what I can and cannot do?

Aceto, why don't you finally give up. If free soloing is where its at go hit up some overhanging 5.14 "trad" climb- freesolo!
but im not going to hijack a thread with another aceto sucks rant.
my favorite piece is any one of my link cams (they fit and hold in all kinds of dicey placements), second are 7-10 bd stoppers. third is my #3 TCU, its held more falls than all the rest of my rack put together.

Mine would have to be my harness, which happens to be a WC Helix.

I never have to think about weather or not it's going to hold me.
I never have to wonder if it's the proper size or not.
It holds all the gear I can throw at it. (It has 5 gear loops.)

Cool

is there a picture that's supposed to go with that? my nuts always stay seated, but I could see it getting annoying if they got up and started dancing around in the middle of a pitch.
edit: ok, i actually went back and red jmats post- i got it the lugnut pro deal. no they probably wouldn't stay seated very well, and I wouldn't fall on those nuts- it could hurt.Wink
