A guy who is into a little bit of everything...music (listening and making it), photography, DIY, technology, the outdoors (hiking, backpacking, climbing...), and trying to live by grace through faith. I also currently work at a high adventure camp in the Southeast where I also do a little bit of everything...

comment How to repair my boots (leather)
I've also got some leather boots that need some TLC to keep going, but my issue is cracks in the leather around the toe, mostly where it bends, not busted stitching. Been brainstorming some solutions for a while, but was hoping to get a some solid info before I take a chance in ruining my currently still functional boots. Curious to see what we get.

comment Dealing with large runouts during sport climbing
Often these type of routes with such long runout are actually mixed routes. These require placing some protection as you would with trad climbing, in addition to the bolts. A true sport route requires no additional protection to be placed to climb it safely. If you don't know how to do that, then I'd recommend getting a friend who does trad reliably to teach you.
