Comments: This is the exact line I took to keep it in the grade, going straight up through the first 3 bolts is significantly harder.

Comments: Some kind of critter has excavated a residence in the dirt to the left of the block at the top.

I would have liked to clean some of it off, but there was so much debris on the ledge/horizontal at the top that I couldn't even finish the climb.

Comments: Hahaha I must have been quite enamored with that rock, too bad it didn't return my affections and spit me off on my flash attempt :-)

Comments: Finally got out there today and cleaned the loose block. What was left above the block didn't budge with the pry bar and should be OK for now.

The thing on the right my friend Greg had mentioned felt and sounded OK so I didn't touch it.

Comments: I didn't onsight, messed up the beta at the crux. Once Jim gave me some tips felt like about mid 11. Will add to the ratings even though I haven't gone back to tick it.

PS Got on this again a couple of years later and missed a hold at the crux again.

If you want it to feel like low 11, it's probably better to do as two pitches. Even if you manage to completely eliminate the rope drag by using all 25 cm quickdraws, doing it as one pitch is probably gonna feel at least a letter grade or two har... more >>

Comments: Thanks for fixing this Eric, I lowered off that last bolt myself back in 2005 or so. *yikes* Donated to the ASCA last year when somebody (forgot who) was matching 100% of the donation. Glad to see it put to good use.

Comments: A couple of the nuts on the bolts in the middle (that probably see a lot of whippers) are loose and I didn't have my wrench at the time. Hand tightened as best I could.

Comments: It's not unsafe, but you'd probably want your belayer on their toes for the crux moves. On the second ledge up high, it's easy to forget the bolt is even there, don't forget to peek around the corner and clip it.

Comments: Thanks for posting Greg, was gonna post it a few years back but then I realized I couldn't remember where the anchors were. I think I ended up going right to the anchors for GAC Rulz? Also, can't remember if I brought the second up or they weren't interested in climbing it and I was able to clean it from those anchors.

Comments: Moving Over Stone #2 says "Photography - Scott Ayers" in the credits at end. I guess what would be called "cinematography" these days? Not sure about #1.

Comments: Great, sustained pitch with a mix of face and thin cracks. Bring the endurance on this one :)
