Comments: After thinking a bit about what Ian said "We need more hard boulder problems in Wisconsin." I can understand now.

It's not that "we" need more hard problems in WI. I think it's that Ian has done all the hard problems in WI and might get bored, if not for all of the sits and variations he has been adding. I suppose if I had climbed all the boulder problems at my limit and there wasn't anything left to work on, I would be doing exactly what Ian is doing.

Comments: I R confused. So you start up and right of intercourse, make some moves backwards down and left. Then you go up intercourse? So you start by down climbing?

Comments: I've always climbed the blue line. Both lines can utilize the foot jam. And it's definitely not a cheap move and doesn't help everyone. It's one of the more unique moves I've pulled while climbing.

Comments: Crashpads of all sizes needed for this one sweaty. You can fit a small 10.5 crashpad in the first crack, then move up to an even smaller 5.4 crashpad, clip that and huck for the top!

Comments: I recall telling you about this line last year sometime. Glad you roped up and got on it. How close to a send did you get?

Comments: Nothing wrong with climbing a squeeze job, or posting it. I think the controversy here is that you bolted a squeeze job that most likely was already climbed and on gear to boot, then claimed the FA, and changed the name of the climb.

If holds broke off, this could be a re-ascent, but the name of the climb should not be altered. "Blinded by Lust" was the name given to it by the FA and that is what it should be called.

IMO:

Blinded by Lust 5.11+

FA - Rich Bechler
FA after holds broke - Keith... more >>

Comments: Haven't looked at this since it was posted last year. After reading the comments, sounds like you are trying to claim an FA of a route Rich Bechler did decades ago. The only rock right of Ten High before you hit Whiskey Chimney, is what you are climbing on. Therefore making the climb "Blinded by Lust" 5.11+ FA Rich Bechler.

You mention lots of cleaning and ripping small holds off. I've thought many things were FAs here in WI, only to find out they had been done 5-10 years ago. The amount of di... more >>

Comments: If you recall sir, you handed me the brush when I topped out and I scrubbed the top holds pretty good. I'd say this thing is clean.

Comments: I used photoshop to edit Rhoads pants and shirt so you can actually see him. They were both grey.
