Comments: What's even more amusing is that many were done long before that dude showed up. like the one in the pic up there.

Comments: I followed this route behind a trad leader long before 1999. And that's the truth. It's a bit thin, nevertheless, it was done.

Comments: I consider myself lucky to have had the priviledge of climbing at the Upper Falls before it was closed. Now whenever I watch Deliverance it brings back fond and long ago memories...the John Voigt climbing scene, of course :)

Comments: Ah,yes, Peregrine. Many years ago one of my old climbing partners, being a poor student, decided to fashion his own "nuts and hexes" from water pipe fittings and wooden blocks. On one our trips to the Glass, we approached the Nose area and all the guide groups were hogging the first pitches of the Nose and Sundial.

Comments: This route was actually done WAY before 1999. I don't get how these folks think they did it first, but we were already on this route in 1995 and there was an old stuck cam in the upper corner when WE did it. So, it's really FA unknown.

Comments: Whatever the first pitch is rated in the book, it's 5.7 in my little world of ratings. I think the crack pitch (3rd) is actually easier.

Comments: Does anyone remember the single rap bolt at the top of the dihedral? It was chopped about 5 years ago. Good thing, it was sketch.

Comments: I have to say, I've never tried the original 10a variation. That seam looks awful thin.

Comments: Jeremy, you captured the climber's face and that "oh s#it" expression perfectly. I love it!

Comments: Ha! Jerr, didn't know you were on here. I see you survived your last day in Atl.
Yes, that was a fun day. The same weekend the two Florida brothers lit up our lives.
And yes, you were the belayer.

Comments: I've seen 5.10 leaders freak on the first 30 ft. of this climb. Best to move along if you're really looking for a 6.

Comments: This route can be a gruntfest in the first 30 ft., especially if you aren't all that good at wide cracks.
