    It’s not. That cord was there for several years and was definitely not hardware store rope. I inspected and used it multiple times. For starters, the pattern is different. That cord was 5 or 6mm accessory cord.

    Unfortunately, prices seem to be headed in the opposite direction. Materials costs are up significantly.

    I could make a small fortune selling real rope for $10.99 per 100 feet.

    Of course, I would have to start with a gigantic fortune.

    Some knot-chocks from this year's canyons. My personal favorite anchor to construct/solve, though I am not the mastermind behind all these photos!

    I think I recognize that last one. If I’m correct, it’s mine. Placed last December from an even worse placement.

    Hmm, this one? Honestly, I don't think so, it's in a really obscure (ie poor quality) canyon outside St. George?

    In img_1084 there is a polished snail fossil directly under the photographer's right foot; off-camera, that is.
