Comments: I'm sure you're all good guys and good climbers. It's easy to misconstrue typed text and meaning/motivation behind it. Can't really find fault with anyone that wants accurate route info. Josh, thanks for posting it up in the first place. I'd be happy to knock a few back on Tom's deck with any of you any day.

Comments: Kevin,

Andy didn't say "summiteers" he said "submitter". The submitter is Josh Janes, not you and the others in the first ascent party. Please read his comment again. I don't know Andy personally, but he has always seemed to be a reasonable guy, and has great reverence and respect for the areas he climbs in and the FAists that put up bold routes like this one.

Comments: There's a perfect .4 under the jug on the second ledge. This protects the stretch of crimps just before the huge horizontals before you turn the corner.

Comments: While I agree with you Ed, this isn't the only place that this has occurred. I don't know how long the bolts have been there, or if the FA put them there. Other routes that are bolted cracks and can probably be protected with gear are Disturbance at Beauty, Beetle Byway at Meadow, and the list goes on. There are also routes that go the other way. Gear-protected but thin, requiring tiny gear and definitely R rated- the addition of bolts would be justified (with regard to safety), yet they rem... more >>

Comments: ***NOTICE***

This is the response that I received to the email that I sent to the State Park yesterday:

"Hi Jake

I am the mountain region biologist for NC state parks (and a long time Stone climber), and your email got forwarded to me. First off many thanks for reaching out to the park on this. I know that flake very well, and I really appreciate the heads up. Ive told the guys at the park to post notices that the Arch is closed for the time being due to unsafe conditions, a... more >>

Comments: Awesome Ross. Friends of mine were there last weekend. They are Stone veterans and were telling me about it yesterday. They said didn't touch it or place under it.

Comments: WOW! That is definitely new, definitely huge, and definitely terrifying. Thanks for putting the picture up Ross.

Comments: I'll contact the State Park and see what they say. I would imagine they need to suspend access for a few hours and would want to oversee the trundling- in whatever way they deem necessary. If this is the block that I'm thinking of, that thing is gigantic and could very well change the character of a couple of routes below it when it comes off; to what degree- who knows.

Edit: Just sent an email to the .gov site of the state park. Will update if/when I hear anything. Please be car... more >>

Comments: I completely and wholeheartedly support this statement! Thank you Matt for saying publicly what everyone knows to be true. The last sentence is particularly pertinent, and is the most solid advice I have ever heard and should be adhered to strictly.

Comments: Never been, but it's awesome that you took the time to do a line that you've done before and upgrade fixed gear and clean up tat. So thanks.

Comments: It stays dry when there's a straight downpour- like in the late spring and summer. With misty, wind-driven rain, and with the added water of melting snow runoff, almost everything was wet- even routes like this one that are notoriously dry when everything else is wet. It is a sweet route though.

Comments: Wasps in a finger pod about 3/4 of the way up on 3/15, between the little tree/rest stance and the bashie. I'm with Sam. I'm not a really proficient 5.11 climber, but the start felt pretty difficult for me, especially right off the ground. I had to layback most of the initial corner because I guess my fingers are so thin, I couldn't get any solid locks. It definitely eases up as you ascend, and the awesome jams and locks as you go up are really rewarding.

Comments: Yeah. Def. not Block Route because it's below the Arch, not beside it.

Comments: Pics can be deceiving. The first pitch of this thing is a pretty serious lead. I mean, the whole thing is, but especially the first pitch, and particularly up to the first bolt. I don't doubt that there are people that can "run all over it" but I think they would be few and far between.

Comments: This is the second route with this "do it without a rope or it doesn't count" comment. Let's just drop trou and compare dicks and skip the nonsense. If you're a badass, then people will know, and there's no need for this type of personal hyperbole. There are a few badasses that live in the region, and they're all super humble guys and gals. You could learn a thing or two from them.

Comments: I was blown away by the quality of not only the rock and problems in this park, but the aesthetic quality, ambience and manicured nature of the park itself. Thanks for all your effort and hard work with regard to establishment, documentation and access, Aaron. This place is a gem.
