Comments: Thought I might try and solo this but talk of a dirty finish had me down climb rather than commit to the final 10 feet. Still enjoyed the mental game and am glad of my choice after looking at it from above. I am from Arizona and was surprised there wasn't a person out here.I wish there had been so I could have bummed a TR FROM them.

Comments: Lots of people have yet to learn all the lingo. No big deal.at least Jim both didn't point it out in front of a lot of people! Oh wait.I can assure you he wasn't trying to belittle you just trying to get you on the correct page. In person he would have looked at you with a wry grin and said it in a tone that let you know that. Have a good weekend.

Comments: Please don't use any cable draws up there. I have read that they wear out as the cable takes whipper after whipper after whipper which these draws get. Just get up there and tape the biner back on so it doesn't do that again. There is a whole discussion about how the pins were fucked up when these draws were added. I really suggest you tape that biner back on.

Comments: Any data to support the claim that cable draws last longer than chain draws. I have never heard of a chain draw wearing out but I have read about cable draws fraying. A couple of chain draws would be nice.

Jbak why don't you ask Cres if he cares, I bet he doesn't.

Comments: According to my tick list I did this with you JJ. I remember using the crack I think and not being able to clip the bolt and running it out. Two weeks ago I did it staying left in the dihedral which was also fun and in the 12- range.

Comments: Or, you could tie one end of your rope to the big fat bolt on the main face just before you start wishing you had a rope, and use that as a hand line. You will still have enough rope to lead this route or Hadaptation and lower off.

Comments: The approach being "steep and brushy" is for the area below Ridgeline not the Boneyard. The approach to the Boneyard is neither.

Comments: Hey 20KN I totally agree. We used to use them for a short time. Perhaps if you get some folks together to raise some funds and purchase quicklinks and Mussies or or chain and old carabiners those who did the work or some other local will fix them up as we do here on Mt. Lemmon.

Comments: Totally changes the finish on this very short route by negating the last move. Standard draw or trad draws not opened up and you would have to make the last move to the anchors before clipping. A good safe whipper can be taken if you fail to make the move to the clipping holds.

Comments: The key is that you cross the drainage about midway up the hill, then turn right.

Comments: The screw gate on that locking biner was purposely diabled as people tend to lock them which is unnecessary. This leads to the gate bein stock in the locked postion. Rapping off of chains because a screw on a gate doesn't work or looks mangled seems way more dangerous than lowering off of a Mussy Hook and a biner that has a fully functioning gate. You might want to search dropped gear on this site.

Comments: Added a 3 or 4 bolt 10+ direct start to this route while ago. Pretty fun and powerful. Starts about 15-20 feet down gully from 96 Degrees in the Shade.

Comments: Did this for the first time yesterday, the day after the CASA theclimbershome.com/ Adopt a Crag. Now I understand why everyone loves it so much. I did the original route that finishes on the left wall of the chimney which was nice as it involved no chimneying. Glad I had a photo of the topo to guide me along. www.facebook.com/toofasttopos

Comments: You can thank Jimbo for using up the best of them. Guys brain never stops thinking of them. We've probably forgotten a couple of hundred that just didn't quite work for a particular route.
