I'm heading to Australia in a couple weeks and am sure to get some climbing in while there. Then going to New Zealand (South Island) - perhaps I could pass it along to Nate.

Just remember to inspect it and if it is, just carry it.

What's wrong with that? The more crack the better!!! Well at least until the powder is in at Wolfcreek in a month or so....

Climber Drawing
This brings back a memory of the prestigious and coveted White Carabiner Award.
Back in the late seventies, at Taylors Falls, MN, my partners and I, (all affiliates of the DLFA) would pass on the coveted white carabiner to the climber who was the most worthy of earning it.
The white carabiner was given to the climber who did the best job of f*#%ing up over the previous year.
I once received it for lowering Dave Halls off of a route called The Cross. I wasn't really paying too much attention and inadvertently lowered him past the ledge until he was waist deep in The Saint Croix River. His shoes were soaked and his chalk was paste.
I wonder what ever happened to the iconic white biner of shame?

First route is done and carabiner is ready to pass along. (John-- why don't you shoot me your shipping address.) What is the plan here for pics and TRs? Should we start a new thread? Post them here? Other?

Hi Larry,
Glad to here the first route has been done. I think starting a new thread for the trip reports might be a good idea. That way those who are interested can reply here and the trip report thread will be somewhat cleaner. I'm really looking forward your TR.

Hey I would like a chance to give the traveling biner a go. Maybe we could get a duplicate biner out there so 2 or 3 of them could be traveling at the same time. More trip reports and stories that way. We also would not be waiting for a month each time the biner traveled afar. Dallen

I'd be happy to remind that poor oval how to fold a munter hitch, and bang it around wherever I find myself climbing when it gets to me ....

Would love to get in on the game. Could take it up to the Gunks or NH this winter for some ice climbing, or possibly out to PA for some short sport routes. Definitely count me as interested. Bet it would be the 'biners only stay in NJ.

Crested Butte, looking for a landing . . .
Has this game ever turned out bad for the players . . . like working on the set of Poltergeist? I have a pair of lycra tights from 1989ish that could be passed around and photographed on various routes - for the truly intrepid. I think the biggest/best runout pic provider gets to keep 'em.

I better go look to see if I still have them - if not, how about some Verve tights?

Where's the BINER???
This started in August. I just got back from courthouse today and there IS a story behind it. Also, I would have to see if my phone would get a good shot of the biner's good side so I could send it to my computer and later post. Anyway, looks like people still want to see what is happening to the biner. post up please
