The idea of using a racially neutral gluestick (I thing they are purple) and gluing burlap on the bottom sounds about right. Gigi, you just n00bed yourself. There is no running on the approach (deproach?) to the black. It's some steep walking, a couple scramble, and some raps off fixed lines.


You could try some black glue but chances are it won't work.

Simmer down tubby, purple (or any color) glue sticks are still white glue but with pigment. If JohnL wants something other than white glue he can try a naturally black glue but they generally contain petroleum distillates and won't work for his purposes.

Interesting how your post is the least interesting, lest informative, and most judgmental. I could say the same for noobtards but that would get me introuble.

Anyway,


I was thinking coconut husks might be just the thing. Get to get a big husk and trim it just right. They burn well, have no pollution, and you get a coconut for your troubles. I am assuming you have a women's size six foot for this to work.

tomato, tomotto, kill mike amato.
i like your idea. you could make them pretty cush if you used 2 layers of cardboard with a center layer of that waffle paper that they use for packing. they would be so light that you could even carry them, just in case you get benighted and need a little friendship fire! slim

This is the internet, it's very serious business and should be taken literally.

Talk to this guy. He may let you borrow one of his IBMs. Though you should stick with sanuks because they probably are about the max payload mass. Also, 2000' might be pushing the max altitude.

There is definitely a "funniest post" in this thread.

John, you should use hemp if this is a once or twice a season thing. Plenty of sandals made totally from hemp that you could use for ideas. If you're doing it every weekend though, hemp might be expensive.

Axes glistening in the sun
Just wrap your feet in duct tape. You might then be able to slide your feet into your climbing shoes. A little sweaty maybe, but think of the ankle support. "H"

I've done a few approaches (where you top out at your packs) with my feet taped with climbing tape. You can pull it off at the base, wad it up and burn it, or pull on climbing shoes over it. Works fairly well if that's all you are concerned about, and it has more traction than duct tape. Alex McIntyre

Wrap your feet in weed and then smoke it right before the climb. You'll lead two grades higher. Ray Pinpillage

If you handstand walk to the base of the climb the only approach gear you need will be some leather gloves (lightweight and packable). Crossing

i always enjoy using something once, and then burning it. it shows my true human nature.

suck it up, and carry the friggin weight. it might make you slightly stronger. talking about tarahumara, bring some minimal shoes like five fingers or something.

Just an aside, I had to drive the Crysler van today. God, I hate Cryslers.

How's the tar baby working out, John?

Jeff, shut up.


no, you! weaaaa.

other than telling you to suck it up, which you should, i also gave you good advice about minimal, light footwear.

you really think that making a shoe you can burn is a genius idea? it sounds like a lot of work for something you will burn.

The genius of John's idea is that it's stoopider than anything anyone else has ever come up with. That takes Real Genius™. Taking this subject serious is dumb.

Fuck, adding a "z" to a word to make it funny sucks. I retract that shit.
