Comments: Every time I show up after not having climbed this in a while I find myself falling or stepping off and going wait... how did this sequence go? Errrr... Well it must have gone like this...no...maybe like...no...ahhhhhhh. Send.

Comments: Was out this weekend lookin at this rock... If you started on Kerosine and ended up on the finishing mantle shown on Ahab vid, then it'd be a link up of the two ;-). The problems both have two distinct starts, finishes, and only share one hold.

I added a beta pic. Kerosine has some amazing movement if you get the sequence right. I will say matching that hold ruins a lot of cool movement. Throwing to the crimp dish is fun, setting up and throwing for the crimp is awesome, sticking it ... more >>

Comments: HaHa...yup its my Direct Atomic Pleasure Project. It's been a long standing proj of mine. It clocks in at about V7/8 I think... I've fallen on the last move to the lip more times then I'd care to admit.

Comments: Thanks for adding the pic... though I'm not sure where you got the names. Many have climbed this before you or I so I would refrain from making up names and publishing them on here unless there's something else at play.

Comments: Perfect thanks Brian! Do you have a link for that map so I can cite it and use it on the CT page?

I made the change from N/S/E/W to the geographic regions for various reasons, one being to educate people who climb in our state. I switched to this language and to educate folks but also provide a different perspective on our state, one which includes its unique geological history. It provides a better perspective of the landscapes of CT.

I figured if I got enough complaints I would revert back ... more >>

Comments: In the world of bouldering, I would say that's a different line but shares a hold with Kerosine. Kerosine starts just to your right, goes up right first, then big move w/ left (to the hold you grab with your right), then to a crimp out right and up right to the dish and mantel. I would consider it a variation or a new line and you should add it to MP. Thanks for sharing bud!

Comments: Thanks John... been there done that. And I totally and respectfully disagree with you, as someone who served on the board. There is zero interest in managing the property from an ecological perspective. And the bylaws could be interpreted and even amended if the will was there in order to provision the use of climbing equipment for conservation purposes. As you said... by laws could make some things difficult, but not out of question or impossible. The problem is you have a few bad apples holdin... more >>

Comments: The RMF board doesnt care about environmental impact of climbing, at least not enough to do anything about it. A few idiots and a broken ethic.

Comments: Hahahaha... you made me laugh thnx man. I was kinda like really only two stars??

I think one could stay on route and place gear, i just don't think you could fall on the upper half of the route. Did you lead Black Orchid? That could be a first lead for that route.

Comments: Looks like you got the SA Chris? Did you send on TR or on Lead? Surprised you think its only 11c/d... the move around the corner at the undercling and subsequent compression sequence always felt a harder then 11+.

I've always though that you could probably get some cams in Cary's Corner on the lower section. But what would you do to protect the top half of the route? Falling at the crux move around the corner wld lead to a large swinging fall into the left wall. Falling beyond that point, I wo... more >>

Comments: Just a warning... the power lines host massive tick populations and we stopped going in that way all together as we weren't excited about pulling 10+ ticks off us per visit.

It is also significantly longer if you are trying to get to the west side and you also miss some good bouldering between bald rock and the basin.
