comment In an abandoned quarry, is it possible to pry loose rocks from walls until stable?
Virtually all the rock surrounding where I live is Limestone...It is very prone to instability. There is also a general rule of thumb in the climbing community that you never ever climb on "blasted" rock, ie. alongside highways or in this case a quarry. It is no longer in a natural state and once disturbed it is highly unpredictable! In my most honest opinion this does not look "cleanable" by hand. This would require a backhoe for sure, with a good chance of not even achieving a stable scramble face.

comment Rating unothodox climbs
Last time I went down to Kentucky I thought I'd warm up on a 5.8, I couldn't even get off the freaking ground. Later that day I on-sighted a multi-pitch 5.11a. You will find that grades are subjective and that every climb is different, every climber has a different style, body type, strengths and weaknesses. There's nothing more rewarding than seeking some bad ass trad line, sport route or boulder and on-sighting it without even knowing the grade. I always remember the feelings I experience while climbing and not the time spent debating the grade. Get out there and have fun! Happy Climbing :)

comment Permanent Camping Cooler - No Ice Needed
If the eggs have previously been refrigerated they MUST continue to be refrigerated. However, if the egg is fresh and has not been refrigerated they can last weeks in the summer heat. eggs are designed to hatch baby chicks in a healthy environment, eggs only get "rotten" if bacteria has invaded them; they don't just rot from lack of refrigeration, or it would be impossible for hens to hatch chicks. Important to note that you should not wash them once you collect them fresh as there is a protective coating on the egg, wash when ready to consume...

@OutlawLemur I've only had the plastic slide right off when the nalgene is full and I use a key chain biner to my pack...I too agree that the lid connection is flimsy...

Invite Chris Sharma, Dave Graham, Nalle Hukkataival and Daniel Woods to your house...They just recently scaled the Bridge of Pilgrims, high above the river Arga in Spain....They'll be able to rate your brick problem with the most accuracy.

@HelmHammerhand Please be sure to understand how PLB's work and how they differ from Avalanche Beacons and devices such as SPOT. The reason I am pointing this out is to avoid situations such as this. I encourage you to give this a read.
