Nameless boulder on the edge of the Holy Boulders area in SoIll.

Serious questions: 1)Is a trampoline considered aid?
2)And if so, how much would it cost for Rock and Resole to make custom rubber hand-jammies for my oversized hands? Would I have to mail myself in for a job like that? Turnaround time?
3)What's their number again?

Sorry about the time delay. I am in a time warp. But better late than never quoting you, Darren.

Which brings us to...(drumroll, please!) page 36. Once again, I feel like a proud parent. I gave birth to page 36!

"Yes."
Clarification: What if I just use it as protection; not necessarily to get me up my project?

Lorenzo, a trampoline should be in every climber's quiver of tools. They make dynos much easier.

If you are just using them for protection, without a rope, it is referred to as "trampoline soloing." It's the latest rage. Everyone is doing it.

Thanks. And, congrats! Page 36 has a bright future. God, they grow up so fast.

I am looking to do a linkup of Watkins, El Cap, and Halfdome. How would you recommend using the trampoline for protection on these? I am ok soloing as long as I have something soft to fall on. How do you guys aim for a trampoline after peeling off 600 ft off the deck?


A very good question, indeed. You've heard of "Portaledges"? And "Porta Potties"? You need a "PortaTrampoline." It's necessary big-wall equipment for the aspiring trampoline soloist.

Isn't that the truth. One minute, they're a new page and the next, they want to borrow your rack. "I promise I'll be home by midnight."

Could I point out that this is one of the funniest comments I have read in awhile?

The hardest part of being a new page parent is when they ask, "Dad, where do new pages come from?" My standard answer is "Ask your mother."

Jonathan. the PAS is strictly for writing new threads, it has no real use! It's an imaginary device, invented by people wanting to start Internet wars.

Oh I see... I wondered why I could not find one. I was thinking I was missing a integral part of looking "cool". You just made my life easier.

Definitely. Considering how much choss I have climbed in my climbing career, I regularly claim that I have freed the Salathe Headwall. It's pretty much all the same.

That's so true. I don't want to explain "page control" to them. How, in the heat of the moment, it's too hard to stop and use page control. Fumbling, playing, "Beat the Clock"...

Typically those big walls just take too much time and effort. Instead I just climb routes that are similiar to it, i.e: I have freed ElCap by climbing around 100 crack climbs. Or there are a couple of classics that I have freed in my gym.
