comment Making a Make-Shift harness from Tape-Slings
I did learn how to tie a Swiss Seat (25+ years ago) and have used it on several occasions. But the video you link to doesn't seem anything close to what I learned (many youtube comments argue that it might even be unsafe). The one I learned to tie is like the one in this video except that we used webbing.

comment What is the most effective method to clean skin exposed to poison oak?
Decades ago, while camping, we ran out of soap. Since the main use for soap is removing oil and grease, we'd use dirt to remove oily residues on pots and then rinse and rub with enough water.

@ShemSeger Maybe he meant setting up the top anchor for other climbers to top-rope?

comment Cleaning the inside of a backpack
When trying to get rid of odors, I usually let it dry in direct sunlight. Works for me, but I must add that I don't have anything to back up this claim.

comment Why are indoor climbing grades easier?
@Val, didn't know that. Perhaps I should consider my long-overdue climbing trip to Europe (or anywhere else, really). Are these "modern" gyms different at all? Or have they just attracted more clients?
