Comments: Asshole? You ungrateful twat, I made you a map!

I'm sorry to hear that the top of both buttresses look similar and it threw you off. I'm impressed your persevered without realizing that the nature of the rock, the approach time and orientation of the crag were wrong. I imagine you had your phone with you to compare pics? Gotta wonder in which state you'd have ended up if you had been going by the guidebook...

Congrats though, you probably made a rare repeat of:

Comments: How the hell do you match pics of a granite buttress to a chunk of red quartzite?
You didn't find a catchment, you found a pipe bridge... Didn't you wonder why it only took you 10 minutes to get there instead of 35?

That would be how to get to Twilight

Comments: Pretty amusing that you can see the jeep road on this picture. Maybe following that ROAD to a large buttress made of GRANITE on the SOUTH side of the canyon would have helped? The anchor points are fine...

Comments: Brick hard for the grade given in the book (12a), definitely closer to mid 12.
Excellent climbing and many stars despite the garbage rock at the bottom. Once you clip the first bolt it's on and doesn't really let up until the last 2 bolts.

Comments: Nice edit Allen, you had a different story this morning... Were they solid? Are you the pin goblin? Did you lie to my face about all the Ferguson pins too? Go replace bolts instead of disappearing pins.

Also, what the fuck is it with this place and people rewriting the history they're already making up as they go?

Sorry grk10vq but yer talking out yer ass. While I have pulled a fair number of bad pins over the years those pins were buried and not bad.

You're so stealth...
What is it then, a picture form the Rakkup guide which is technically not in print? You should have been a lawyer.

Comments: Did you remove the trees on Rakkup so the topo shows more than 1/3 of the route? Spam.

Comments: Interesting bit of historical knowledge! Too bad you had to spray your guidebook author SPAM all over it.

EDIT: Nice edit Orwell...

Comments: This isn't about the route. Up until a few hours ago there was a comment (by you, not in your own name of course) advertising your own guidebook and it had absolutely nothing to do with the route and everything to do with yourself posing as a third party to promote something you stand to make a buck from while on a free beta website. It's dishonest, it's misleading, and it's about the tenth time you've done it on here.

I guess erasing your comment and deflecting the narrative is very much in l... more >>

Comments: SPAM! After leaving Rakkup stickers on all the cars at the Gate you're coming HERE to promote YOUR e-guidebook? How about disclosing your financial interests in this, along with a disclaimer about the profound bias in your opinion...
As for the print guide, I'm hoping you're not referring to the Orwellian reinterpretation of the canyon's history you call a guidebook?

Comments: You can rap this line with a 60 m rope, it will leave you with about nothing to spare. No top roping though, a 70 m would be mandatory.
Fun route with 2 distinct cruxes surrounding a thin section and moderate climbing for the rest.

Comments: The dirt is already coming back! As JS said, get on it before it fills back up with grime, it's a worthy route which starts easy and gets progressively harder and thinner.

Excellent line on solid rock, even the wide section felt solid. The gear is good but as usual in BCC, a bit tricky to set right. The moves and exposure at the roof are classic. Great find!

Comments: Hard to read and scary to onsight. Blowing the 2nd, 3rd and even 4th clip could have serious consequences as the route traverses over rising talus.
Once you have the sequence figured out the climbing is great with long moves and an unexpected variety of holds.
This line and its neighbor to the left have the best rock at the Running Scared wall, reminiscent of the Jungle (same rock band?)

Comments: Triples on #2s and #3s with two #4s would work, I'm sure you could find a spot to mash a #5 and feel really good about it. Again, your mileage may vary...

Comments: Super sandbag at 10c. The opening moves are as least 11a, the rest is sustained and technical with a lot of thin hand sections and not that many places to stop and shake out. Triple or even quadruples on fat fingers to hand sizes wouldn't go unused for the OS attempt...

Comments: Pitch 1 is a full 60m rope, 210' or so. I'd have been really bummed with only medium to large gear on this pitch. Small nut/cam placements abound and a full set to a BD #5 wouldn't go unused. The climbing is easy but the hollow nature of the rock and spaced out gear keeps you on your toes. I wouldn't recommend this one to a budding 5.8 leader.
We linked P2 and P3 with a bit of simul climbing on a 60m. A 70m would probably work without the 2nd leaving the anchor. Bring tons of draws and run... more >>
