Comments: Cool maneuver. Yep....hate to say it, but that is a hair dab. Same thing happened to Nina Williams on a V10 she was working.

Comments: Wow! Most be Batman and Robin to casually hang at that inverted ledge, and be bullet proof, too.

Comments: Quite the bad case of camera tilt! Hard 5.11? Looks more like class 4, at most, from that angle.

Comments: Nice slab, but it looks a bit loose and scaley in places.

Comments: Hey Matthew....this fine specimen was one of a trio of captive-bred Rosy Boas that I kept. They are magnificent and docile creatures. This particular female had numerous offspring and ravenously consumed small rodents. The route Lichanura Trivigata was named after her due to the orange colored dike the route follows that resembled her stripes. She's just laying on a black cloth at a school Science Fair.

Comments: The route description indicates 5 bolts, but Matthew's topo (Aug. 19, 2006) shows 6 bolts.

Comments: Sounds like a job for Dean Potter. With his height and ape index the pile of stones likely wouldn't be an issue.

Comments: Boy Beta Version?? I like the name "Mars Attacks," but that looks like some heinous rope drag. However, extending the clips with long runners doesn't look appealing either.

Comments: Jackie.....I'm certain that all who have gazed upon the photos posted by PrrdyLady recognize you (eg. "but I AM the lady..."). Rough makes a very clever analogy regarding a dude in a thong and the attire you display in your photos. While the comments are offensive and display a lack of maturity, your photos have a common theme, which appears to be a magnet for "unnecessary" adolescent comments. Hey...try something different...put some careful thought into what you're trying to project in your ph... more >>

Comments: Nice. The hanger rates at 25 kN, the rap ring tests out at 30 kN, but the lap link checks in at just 5.56 kN. Good thing there are a pair at the anchor.

Comments: Hooray.....the "proposed" plan is for Williamson Rock to reopen in August 2016, with an open period from August 1 - November 15, a special permit system, limits of 90 visitors and cars/day, and a ranger onsight with citation authority.

Comments: Great strategy, Cory. We watched two guys struggling on "Hangman's Knot" and one of them complimented me on a sequent flash, but as you know you pick up a lot of beta watching people work a route.

Comments: Hmmmmm.....DelTaco, I seriously doubt she (Tori) left that magnificent $84.95 BD cam in that crack. Tori appears to be climbing in good style and with excellent composure.

Comments: Alternatively, a couple blue Aliens and a 0.5 Camelot are appropriate and useful to supplement the bolts.
