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.

Comments: AKA "Long Time Coming" by JJ. (A better name IMO).

Ended up moving this back to the Qual Wall from the Lonelies. Seems to be more or less an orphan boulder problem, but it's location is at the Qual Wall.

Comments: A couple really good variations went up today, maybe they have been done before.

Balltick V6?, start left hand on the low start hold on Tick Tock and right hand anywhere on Pinball Arete. Climb up. Ian on the start:

Start position for the variation: Balltick. See description under Pinball Arete.




Powerball V7 or maybe V6 if it were less humid out? Sit start into Pinball Arete, starting low and on right side of the arete. Blake on the start hold and first move:

Comments: You can also do a variation which is a little longer and with interesting moves, by starting on this one and go around the corner into Big Red and finish on that.

Comments: I would say R/X but that's not an option.

I think if you fell (as unlikely as that would be) it would be 3 months before you could walk again, if you ever could.

Amazing problem.
