through the crux, which could be convoluted because the hardest part of this climb is hanging on sharp jugs for thirty feet

IMO you should get info from sojourners from a colder land, because us "locals" are used to the heat. I climb at sandrock all summer, but I have lived in Alabama all my life and am used to the heat and humidity. That being said, if you can handle heat, humidity, and mosquitoes then come climb on... :)

thanks daniel. but what im really looking for is around what temperature the slopers feel more like glass and less like rock. im in tx so heat isnt a problem. except for the fact that hp40 is friction dependent.

what exactly is the melting point of nylon? Not that your rope would melt, but possibly anyone in spandex or lycra pants could find it uncomfortable. too hot/humid is when your hands slime off hot dry rock buckets.... that's when it's too hot for me.

87.6 degrees is when they change texture. of course i'm just yankin yer crank, i was there this past weekend and got bum boy for the first time so the slopers felt fine to me.
