In Tennessee I use the .75 c4 the most so my practical answer is a slew of those. I guess my smart-ass answer is a full rack of #6 c4s to sell and buy a more varied set. Jeff Thilking

I'm sorry to hear that your nuts have not been very active lately.

But I understand, there is something satisfying about climbing on passive gear alone when you feel good about the placements.

In Yosemite, green Alien. I have actually tried this before, I call it the Green Alien Challenge. You have to climb a route, 5.7 or harder, with ten green Aliens and nothing else.

Really - no one said #2 C4s?

Splitter hands get too easy/boring? Not yet for me.

I agree, but I have meat claw hands. So give me a slew of #3's and set me loose at the creek, and we'll be talking.

(Though I guess I'm soloing the crux of super crack of the desert...)

Twos are awesome. But it is not feasible to climb many pitches on all #2s. I can only think of a few routes that can be ran with nothing but 2s and all of them are in Indian Creek.
