    Fiori Rings

    Fiori Rings. They look stout! Has anyone tried these yet? I am a recreational climber and I dont expect I will ever need these. Just curious about what the pros are doing?

    Spur Climb - Second Lanyard?

    I feel like you just wrote my life story! I want to keep a positive attitude like you. Fortunately I also love my "wrong" job. And I get to do a little rigging occasionally.

    Looking for high quality 9 mm double braid polyester

    Thanks for the idea. I got some 8 mil Robline as a gift for Christmas! Very nice looking. Seems like it will be colorfast. Very tight and smooth. I tried splicing a small dog lead. I am finding it difficult at first because it is tighter and smaller than I am accustomed to. I will need to...

    La Sportiva Makalu women’s size 37 (USA 6)

    La Sportiva Makalu women’s size 38 (USA 7)

    Bought two pair on EBay for my daughter. She decided she wanted something lighter. I am advertising the two pairs separately. This pair is obviously worn but still in good condition in most areas. There is a piece of rubber glued to the right inner tongue. Not sure if it is a repair or a...

    Looking for high quality 9 mm double braid polyester

    My name is Eric. I am a splicing addict. I have *way* more lanyards than I need! So I started making dog leashes and either giving them away or putting them on Etsy but no sales yet. I really like using Samson velocity but I think 11mm might be a little heavy for small dogs. I am looking for a...

    Hi R0ck1R0ck2, Are you still around? I am in the market for a new climbing rope and wanted to tap into the tribal wisdom here. I re-read this thread so I don't waste your time. I have been rec climbing on the HH2 and Yale 11.7 since 2016 based on suggestions in this thread. It's been a great...

    How do you prepare for winter storms?

    Curious how you prepare your business or your own home life? We are expecting our first heavy snow of this season. (Probably not too major compared to some of your climates) I was at Lowes and saw people buying snowblowers and repair parts for snowblowers. I started to wonder if I should go into...

    Anyone (who lacks medical training) ever suture yourself or another person or animal?

    Years ago I knew a carpenter who had a chainsaw accident while cutting firewood. He stitched up his leg using his wifes needle and thread. When I heard this story I cringed. I thought *no way* would I ever consider doing this. Fast forward 20 years with my health insurance shifting more costs...
