Minimalist Aid Climbing

A set of aid ladders, 2 fifi hooks and a handful of draws.

No Climbing Shoes.

An aid route was bolted years ago at our local crag for the purposes of running a clinic through a regional gym. After a few clinics, the route was more or less abandoned on the wall. While we may not have intended to do any aiding that day, the minimal gear we had demanded an attempt. Time to put those practice wall sessions to the test, rotten bolts or not.

@gunkclimber is certainly better at it then I am.

Removing Copperheads

Far too many copperheads on aid routes in Yosemite are placed in legitimate cam or nut cracks. These heads steal the adventure of placing your own gear on these routes. What challenge is there to clipping fixed gear? It's certainly not the reason I go up there.
This vid shows how to remove heads using butter knives made from common hardware store chisels.
Contact me via mark.hudon-at-gmail.com if you want to buy as set of butter knives.
