That's not a rack; THIS is a rack!

THIS is a rack!

'The monster rack consisted of 2@ VG #9, 2@ BD C4 #6, BD C4 #5, 2@ BD #5(old style), BD #4.5, 2@ #4(old style), Big Bro #2,3,4,5, a standard rack up to #3(old style), and HB offsets(very useful, please bring 'em back).'

This is the crack; Pratt's crack. (And groovy TR)

I highly recommend a pair of the giant cams. You may sustitute with a pair of really giant balls though. If faded webbing and Aliens aren't your thing bring whatever makes you feel warm and fuzzy.


Reading the whole thread, it seems to me that the sage advice above is only relevant to the latter generation's replies that that TR provoked...
;-)

An interesting TR (and responses), it was too.
Thanks for the link M75.

Agreed though I like this old dogs reply to a gentle gibe about his cam;

Nice touch Robinson, What is that big cam doing hanging from your belt? I know you still have some big tubes somewhere! That would have made it a true old time send.
Bah ha ha .

Down, Dogboy!
You're from the Voo -- you know perfectly well that big cams are for pushing.
Tubes were.... I know about tubes, I invented em. They were an OK stopgap to fill a wide slot in history until better ideas came along. Fussy, tho, and often insecure. Sometimes had to carry a file to make em fit. More secure, at times, than a 4" aluminum bong, but they never sounded as good hanging on your rack....SNIP."

There were some groovy old school hard men who added some awesome tidbits to the post. I think that's what I enjoyed the most, people sharing an oral (and pictorial) history, inc. pics of the first ascent, of a rad looking climb.

Agreed,... and it also included some humour, which is often a rare commodity on USA forums!
