How to overcome auto belay fear

Hi,

I know there are mixed feelings about auto belay in this forum, but can anyone please positively help me how to overcome the fear of using auto belay? I just tried this device for the first time the other day. Climbing up was okay, although it was still a bit scary, knowing there wasn't anything to hold me back. Getting back to the ground was terrible, I could not have the courage to let ...

Patagonia Books-Training for the New Alpinism

Anyone check this book out yet? Just got it last week and barely dove in yet but looks like a great resource. Reading Steve House's 1 year log of accomplishments just a year after starting this program alone is enticing enough to learn more.

Training for walking downhill in gym

After a couple of months of training in the gym by speed walking on inclined treadmill and stairmill with load, I am quite happy with the results: just did Cactus to Clouds trail (23 miles with over 11,000 feet of elevation gain) last week with 40 lbs of load and decent pace, I felt quite comfortable during and after the hike, no muscle soreness whatever. This hike was almost all ascending, just about 5 mile ...

Re: Securing and abseiling a bergschrund

I'm not sure I fully understand the question, but it seems like you are asking how to build a rappel anchor in snow or ice.

In good ice I build a v-thread anchor. (Google Abalakov V thread for an explanation). If it is hard snow, then I chop a bollard. In soft snow, then I use a fluke or dead man a picket.

Fitness

Hey lads,

new here, long time browser, first time poster!

Figured here would be a good spot to post.

Myself and a few mates are climbing Kilimanjaro and Elbrus back to back at the end of July/beginning of August. I'm looking for a bit of advice for training, not just for it but in general. I've been climbing on and off the last four years, mostly in the Alps and Scotland on holidays (for the ...

curcumin as anti-inflammatory and preventative

Howdy folks,
Anyone have any luck taking curcumin (turmeric extract) as an anti-inflammatory for general joint inflammation? I'm talking about hips, elbows, knees but especially finger joints (rock climbing overuse).
I guess my question is twofold: how has it worked for you for inflammation already present? If it has worked, how as it worked as an inflammation preventative post injury?
I've been taking plain turmeric powder for several weeks, without any apparent change. Though I ...
