Comments: Photo I took with Charlies Camera. Probably Winter of '83/'84. But much to my chagrin, at the time, did not receive a cover photo credit for. Leonard Coyne was belaying him, and Alex and Jenny Lowe were in the picture at the start of the 7th Tentical but are cropped out of the picture. It fell down a few days after we climbed it.

Comments: This is a great route. It has fun climbing up the arête .

Comments: This is an Awesome climb, but I second what Phil says. Shit can happen and I don't like having one bolt between me on the technical crux and a 25’ plus fall to the rocks below. It's possible that I just didn't look hard enough but I didn't find anything I would call adequate protection to put in leading up to the first bolt. By adequate I mean something I would be confident could hold the fall if that first bolt failed. Getting to the first bolt is a bit sketchy but my concern is more about ... more >>

Comments: Sorry but I feel compelled to speak up on this subject. No disrespect to anyone is intended. In fact this comment is all about respect. Adding bolts to some elses's route to make it less scary or convenient without getting permission from the FA'ers is bad style and disrespectful. PERIOD....

With the advent of sport grid bolting in Boulder Canyon, I can understand how this ethic is being lost or not understood by newer generations of climbers. In fact, it might not be understood by some in the... more >>
