comment How do I mount a hangboard in an apartment?
I bought the Metolious Rock Rings, by the way. They're mounted on my doorjab pull-up bar. I have been doing a 20-minute finger work-out twice a week that is exceedingly painful. Thanks so much for your help.

comment How do you know if smaller brands of climbing equipment are safe?
I am all for supporting small businesses. But when it comes to safety gear, I prefer to support businesses that I know hire huge teams of mechanical engineers whose sole job is equipment testing.

This is a fascinating answer, and not one I ever would have thought of doing. Have you actually tried this?

comment Primitive fire starting in northeastern Brazil
Just a note: I hate the bow-and-drill method. What a pain. For all practical purposes, I would say try to bring a light and a flint.

comment Safest months to hike in Colorado
I do not know Colorado, but in California I have found summers to be much safer for hiking/backpacking. Sure, you might get wet if it rains and a mosquito bloom is a horrible thing, but that's about it.

comment Difference between a Fingerboard and a Hangboard
Thanks for the references. Particularly the second one, which seems to use the terms interchangeably.
