comment Is this Chinese rock climbing gear manufacturer reliable?
@Dakatine - If you're looking for deals on gear, Sierra Trading Post often has closeouts on new, quality gear. I've gotten a ton of stuff from them, and they send out good (and tempting) coupons in the email all the time which help a lot. I'm not affiliated with them in any way, just to clear that up.

comment Technical clothing brands for extra long arms?
I have a Rab softshell, and yes it has loooong sleeves, good for reaching. I'm a medium and 5'9" and the sleeves could definitely be shorter. They make excellent gear by the way.

Technically, yes. Still would be good info though.

The bowline on a bight does not need a backup stopper. It is a complete knot, but it's good practice to back it up, as well as the figure eight. The standard bowline, however, is a different story. I wouldn't climb on it.

@AffableGeek - I would love to know what that trail is.

comment What's the most remote place in the continental US?
I think we might have a winner! This is pretty much exactly the type of thing I was looking for. And so far, it looks like my casual mention of Montana was a good guess.

@Liam - No, I don't. That's why I said continental US. Alaska is too easy and obvious if I just said the US.

comment What's the most remote place in the continental US?
Yes, my question does imply that by my introduction, but that isn't necessarily what I'm wanting to know. Maybe I should re-word that. I don't necessarily want to visit whatever may be the most remote location, depending on what that location is. I really just want to know what's the most inaccessible location in the States? (not including the obvious Alaska, which is not continental)

Yeah, I intentionally said 'continental US' because Alaska is a no brainer answer if you say just 'US.' And if you broaden the question to North America, then Canada is a shoe-in for have the most remote place.

comment Is this Chinese rock climbing gear manufacturer reliable?
To me, it's a huge red flag that it's not in the UIAA database. It doesn't necessarily mean it's unsafe gear, but it doesn't mean that it is.

+1 for "...when you have any doubt about any piece of gear, don't use it."

I personally would not be the guinea pig to figure out if this is reliable gear. I'd like to see some reputable 3rd party testing before I'd trust my life or someone else's to such unknown hardware. My 2 cents.

@KateGregory - Yes, absolutely. Made sense when I wrote it, but I see how that could be confusing.
