Comments: I'm not sure if this line is distinct enough from the already densely packed routes to qualify as a named route. I wonder if this 5.4X "route" ever be repeated.

Comments: haha. Josh - I did give it 3 stars in the old book, so I liked it too! Can't wait to go for a review, probably get my butt kicked!

Comments: The bolts on this have been replaced and one or two have been moved to better clipping spots.

Comments: err, yeah, truth be told, I meant to move the anchor down a bit to avoid the horrible final slab moves. I'd recommend bailing at the last bolt - it's still solid 12a to there! I don't recall moving too much out of the bolt line though...

Comments: I heard another name for this - "Friction Pants". I will use "Grunt and Moan" in the guide unless I hear otherwise...

Comments: I've only done the route starting from above the chockstone. It's pretty hairy!
Can anyone out there comment on the route starting below the chockstone?

Comments: Ok then. The names were switched and "Cold Feet" is the left-most route. What is now confusing is that the second bolted route from the left was given 11c in the FA report, not 12b.

Comments: Charlie,
I'm guessing you did the direct start instead of off the boulder to the right.

Comments: As I recall, Ranger Brad told me Tony Calderone put this up "ground-up".Brad felt it was poorly engineered, and asked TC to add some bolts, which he did.

Comments: I looked thru some old correspondence with Greg Lowe, who called this 5.11. This may well be the only "Lowe Route" ever downgraded!

Comments: Thanks for the feedback on grade and pro. With brass offsets I think the pro is ok getting to the first bolt. I do wish I'd put it a tad lower though...

I tend to be in the camp of "fix it if it's broken", knowing well that a lot of old bolts were spaced out because we were cheap, not because we were trying to make a statement or be macho. Ok - maybe we were a bit macho...

Comments: Sorry about the high first bolt. It seemed easy at the time! I will see about a fix. PS, I'm 5'6".

Comments: Does anyone have any good quality photos of climbing on any of the Rabbit NE routes that you'd like to contribute to the new City guide?

Comments: Hey Zach,
I'm pretty sure that crack has been done, but maybe not. Do you want to give it a name and rating. I'd like to include it in the new book.
