Comments: So, the Starfish strikes again.

The bolt remnants don't sound great, but nobody can say that Index doesn't have interesting characters.

Comments: Looks like the rock has a nice texture. What kind of rock is it?

And does this problem go straight up over the roof?

Comments: Can anyone here specify where this "gully" is?

What mountain? What is the approach?

I tried contacting the poster, but got no reply.

Comments: Thanks for the suggestion Geoff.

The idea of using "drainage" sounds fine, and geological. Though actually, I was just lumping them together because they share the same parking lot. I'm with you on reducing the huge list of areas listed under the Icicle, but perhaps there should be a general rule to apply when lumping crags together. Or maybe it is just the naming. Should this be SC Drainage, SC Parking Lot, just SC, SC Area, or separate areas?

Suggestions anyone?

If two crags happen to be i... more >>

I want you to set up a nice safe TR for me.

Comments: Holy cow, that is a wild story. I'm glad you weren't hit. Did you yell out?

It was no doubt a crazy person. Just shooting a gun off without regard to where the bullets go is insane. A ricochet can be deadly, a bullet falling down from an upward shot can be deadly. If you find a bullet on the ground, maybe the gun can be identified and the person prosecuted. It would take some further investigation, but if it were me, I'd be pissed-off enough to start snooping around, trying to find the nut-case... more >>

Comments: About that block not killing anyone -- And nobody could possibly be more grateful than myself.

It was a wet day, and I had aided under and around that block. We fell together, but I was held by the bolt to the left. The piece underneath got mangled, but Darryl (who was belaying way off to the left) and I were also shocked that the rope wasn't cut.
