Comments: I've talked with a few people after writing this. I think it depends on height and preferred style of climbing. Shorter burlier climbers will have an easier time with this move? Felt impossible-ish to me.

Comments: I agree 5.8 seems a bit sandbagged, but the worst part of this excellent route was the fear of the cheese grater effect from potentially falling. Thanks to Aaron Costello for not making excessive fun of me for squealing like a schoolgirl upon making the crux move up high over the slabby bulge.

Comments: This was my impression too. Some comments would indicate otherwise, but this makes the most sense. The left line in this photo protects well.

Comments: JJ see Gokul's suggestion for adding subareas to Grant county above.

I really don't care either way, but he seems to think listing the areas in a bigger county makes sense. Let me know what you guys decide and I'll sort it out.

Comments: OK I made a new area and then assigned it to you. Please add a description, directions, GPS, and change the name if you'd like. Now you can also add other areas. Thanks Gokul and Jugs.

Comments: I was kicking the sand under this route last week and found a penny dated 1936. Could barely read the date. Wonder how long that was under the dirt? Lucky day. Cool route.

Comments: It's really quite sad. It hasn't gotten consistently cold enough to kill the beetle over the winter lately. There are whole valleys and mountainsides of dead pines in the black hills, areas that are not actively managed like Custer State Park. When it burns, it's gonna be a fire to remember.

Comments: Steve Schultz found this little history lesson on climbingdevilslake.com and thought "The Breadslicer project" was almost certainly what became Fat Pants when it was projected previously.

Comments: Ha. He didn't really answer my question Jeremy, in true Pete fashion. Nor did I get any information about the exact line his route took.

He told some good stories about near death climbing experiences, really hanging it all out there, some in the Black Hills, some not. He also had a great quote that I won't do justice to, about how grades destroy the beauty of climbing, and demean the essence of what climbing is about.

Comments: I stopped by Pete's house one day and asked him about his route on Superpin versus the Barber route, and also about the bolt removal controversy.

45 minutes later, I had learned that Pete had a Rambler station wagon back in the late 60's - just like the one I happened to be driving that day. I learned nothing about the routes. Fun stories anyway.
