Nice gear!

Applause to the people making gear that works for them.



I found a piton that was obviously milled by hand. Like a Lost Arrow. That looks like a lotta work. I don't trust it enough to use it...
Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

Muy bien amigo.  Que buen fissureros estas haciendo.  Yo tengo algunos amigos en el norte de espana quien hecho pitones y algunos otro cosas para escalando en Big Wall.  Un chico uso un tipo de tornillo con una tapa desde botallas como ... como se dice, mm...como un chapa pero solo para un poquito peso.  Este estaba en una de las parades en Picos.

muy bien, bienvenidos al foro.

Ok hoipolloi.. now you can translate it back for us
(and now we know how miravete must feel) 

Totally admire anyone who makes all their own pro and heads up the rock on it.
I think we forget how easy to just go buy what you need and head out with your shiny new tested & certified gear.
I wonder how many wall climbers there'd actually be if there was no other option but to make and trust your own gear?

Miravete just said thanks for responding in Castellano because sadly he doesnt speak any english.  He loves reading the forums, he thinks we are badass and he would love to see the things we have all made.


Miravete-  Porque tienes 'leads' tan grande?  Esos son como un 'copperhead' yo creo pero nunca he visto uno tan grande! jaja.  Cuando lo usas las leads tan grande.w (lo usas?  lo siento mi espanol esta un poquito olvidado).

de que parte de espana eres? Yo vivia en Quiros, cerca de Gijon, lo conoces?  Ven a los EEUU y podemos escalar en big wall en yosemite.


Ciao amigo

Usted escribe muy bien en Ingl?s. Me enga?? con traducci?n en l?nea!

Conoc? a muchos espa?oles en Yosemite. Son algunos de los mejores escaladores, y el m?s amistoso de personas en el mundo. Tambi?n personas de Pa?s Vasco, Brasil y Argentina son los m?s amistoso - muy buena gente. Escaladores demasiado loco!

Tal vez usted sabe Francisco Blanco, Sim?n y "Ga?ote" de Espa?a? Franco y me subi? un gran muro. ?l no habla Ingl?s en todos, por lo que es m?s de aventura!

Gracias por el lindo video de la fabricaci?n.

Cheers, mi amigo.



Gringos:

You write very well in English. I fooled with online translation!

I knew many Spaniards in Yosemite. Some of the best climbers, and the most friendly people in the world. Also people from Basque Country, Brazil and Argentina are the most friendly - very nice people. Crazy Climbers!

Perhaps you know Francis White, Simon "Ganot" in Spain? Franco and I climbed a big wall. He does not speak English at all, so it's more adventure!

Thanks for the nice video of the manufacturing.

Cheers, my friend.
