Zion National Park
I was climbing the other day and found a cool place to slot a quickdraw for protection, I didn't even place any gear, just slotted the one end in a hole and then clipped the other side. Worked perfect but I was wondering who else does this? Can you use carribeener as pieces of protection like gear?

THANKS! :-)

OK , seriously, if the hole in the rock is small enough to clear the gate of a 'biner, I'd guess it is not very strong.(maybe limonite-iron chunks at the Red would hold)... But if you find a nice big hole where you can pass a sling and have maybe 6 inches of thick rock or more to hold you, I'd go for the natural pro'. Hope this helps out a real climber or a troll.

As named on Seinfeld episode, I think that is a 'Man-sierre' he/she is wearing. Scary anyway you think about it, AND can't spell carabiner either. Woodchuck ATC

haha. the profile pic is gone already. Bring it back. Was this a work of the admins? It was hilarious nonetheless. Wish others could have seen the troll in full form. Member since yesterday.
Definitely a need for the Man-zere.

Troll or not she sure went down hill fast after moving into her car.

This photo is allegedly of her.

Well although it could be a fake, I'm all for accepting her if she can slackline like that.

Working the sick hand-jams on Stemwide aka Big Dih...
Bummer the photo was removed, I thought it was AWESOME! Hmmm. Well, these are two very different photos. The slacklining one is kick-ass and the mansier is, well, also kick-ass! HA! Think it was something like this:
Oh yeah!

I've been belayed up pitch 4 of cloud tower in Red Rocks off of a carabiner chock and a #1 equalized. Wasn't the best, but better than nothing. Keith Earley

Maybe we misunderstood and it was all about a resident of the Carribean, thus a Carribeener'. Could be looking for a Jamaican or Cuban climbing partner for all we know. Woodchuck ATC

There's a great route at Index called Model Worker. The only pro that protects the first move is a biner slotted vertically into a pocket, it actually works as a little cam. It's pretty cool.

Yeah, I did that just a few months ago--hooked the 'biner over a flake, it was the only pro on a 20 foot traverse. The photo cut off right at the 'biner but you can still see how it worked.

By the way, the girl on the high line looks like Ilana Marcus.
