Boven to get Automatic Belays!

Post by wildx » Mon Apr 01, 2019 8:34 am

Stop deleting peoples comments on articles!

Yea, my comment was negative, I absolutely HATE the idea of auto belays at Boven. And I should be free to say that I absolutely hate the idea.
And I even hate it more than it is posted on April fools day, but I am pretty sure it's not an Aprils fools joke because of the black pipes that already bolted in Boven. :puker:

Hope this never ever happens.

personally i think they should install an escalator to make it easier to get to the base of the crag. this is the 21st century people! :mrgreen:

As long as we can bolt the trad lines, I'm happy:)

Exactly. Also instead of having one climber and one belayer both people can climb. This will double our climb rates and remove unsightly bolts and the hassle of leading.

What is missing is the Zip line from Tranquilitas to the Superbowl and all the crags where it would work. If there is not enough drop then a motorized version can be added....

Now that would be super cool.

So you can high line or zip line....

Not that I know of. I have been away for a month ... now see what happens. I'll (have to) be back tomorrow. Maybe I'll just let my clients loose on the auto belays while I chill and read a book...
