Comments: Wow, nice photo, Tyler. That boulder/pebble/erratic is amazing. Glaciers just receding and leaving their litter. Isn't geology wonderful?

Comments: No, sorry, I've seen Big Horn Sheep over at Dissolution Rock, in the Wonderland, and Sheep's Pass, but that picture was photo-shopped.

Comments: Francis...I wish I could say I've never done that, but somethings are best not shared with the loved ones. What they don't know.... well, no harm, no foul.
Of course, they knew you before the little guy came along, so they probably have a notion about your character and what you're capable of....right?

Comments: Wow, that's really sad news, Fran. Sorry, to learn that your camera desked, but fortunately you walked away. Where was this "selfie" taken?

Comments: Looking good. That could make for an exciting descent in the dark. Great image with the clouds and the anticipation of the amber liquid.

Comments: Caffeine, Americano, Cappuccino, Espresso, what's the differencio??? The anchors are still being abused. For that matter, the anchors on ALL these climbs, and more, show significant wear/grooving to prove it. Echo Cliffs deserves better than this!!

Comments: L. DeBardelaben...that is definitely NOT appropriate that you TR'd directly through the anchors and not through you own gear/draws. And you had the audacity to post up a photo of the crime. "SHAME ON YOU," girl!!

Comments: One option for descent is to rappel into the notch to the southwest (to the right if looking down the route from the anchor) toward the summit of the Temple of Ishtar. This only requires a 60 ft rappel and an easy scramble down the broad gulley to the base of "Rainy Day Woman" (the gulley is west of the start of "Rainy Day Woman").

Comments: That's not the Fu Crack, the climber (Toby) is on the Edge (5.7) of Fu Boulder. The Fu Crack is the obvious crack that the climber has his right foot on.

Comments: Ditto on Bill's comments. I'll respect the FAs 5.9 rating, but the crux is committing and unless we missed something, seems harder the 5.9

Comments: Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2014. Record high temps for the holidays at 86 degrees Downtown. Beautiful conditions at Saddle Peak with four parties of climbers and a group High-lining across the gap. Everyone having a great time. AWESOME!!

Comments: Ah, come on Chris, lighten up. "Mushroom" is a great little climb. Lots of interesting movement, where you need to focus on good technique and keep the hips in. The pump clock begins with the initial move. If "Mushroom" was as long as "Being There" it would get twenty-five stars.
