Comments: I've noticed that just about everywhere around Boise is covered in graffiti. Is there a big problem with these little bastards "tagging" around here?

Comments: I thought this was the best section of climbing on the route. Look left for a really fun finger crack, just above this photo.

Comments: This walkoff is doable without a rappel. There are a few bolts but aren't necessary. You just have to know where to step.

Comments: I'll replace them with proper rap rings next time I'm up there if someone hasn't already done so.

Comments: Hey fellers. So this d-bag... what does he look like? He's a fan of cigars? I'll help keep an eye out. I absolutely can't stand the thought of a bunch of jackasses just going out and doing whatever they want to these climbs. Call me if you want.

Comments: I personally prefer the munter. It uses less gear and is easier to set up. On the downside, it does twist the rope into a corkscrew... it's best to rap with the munter if the running end of the rope isn't tied off. And for a rescue load, you can always use the super munter.
When using this hitch, remember: break to gate! The break strand should always be toward the gate so that the load strand should be butted up next to the spine of the carabiner.

Comments: Yeah, that other start is now called Flying Solo, V2. It's arguably one of the best problems in that range.

Comments: This route was incredible. Didn't get it clean but figured out easier beta... (There's a nice incut crimper right after the crack to make that big move to the edge much more static.)
