Comments: Wow, that thing looks horrible. That's about the worst position possible for holding the biner if you want to actually be able to clip a bolt with it, also, how are you supposed to clip a rope into an already hung draw with that thing?

Comments: I think that B Roth is confused and meant to say Soft in place of sandbagged. If you read the rest of the comment that's what makes based on the context. I think we all know that Chuckwalla is about as far away from being sandbagged as possible.

Comments: Wow, I don't agree with most of the description for this climb. This is honestly the most fun route I have ever done. The rock may look kind of chossy, but all the holds felt solid and the rock quality actually felt really good. As far as the movement being boring, I highly disagree, you want boring movement go climb Namaste in Kolob canyon, this route has pretty much every type of movement you could imagine and the climbing feels very 3-d and fun.

As far as the rating, the guidebook gives i... more >>

Comments: I agree with the last comment, the run-outs are kind of retarded. The first is just stupid because the rock is so soft and you'll end up in a tree if you rip a hold (which seems pretty likely), and the second run out you just sit there shaking your head about why there is a bolt 3 feet below the anchors after being a good solid 15 feet from the last bolt. Overall this route is a blast to climb, but the bolting is interesting to say the least.

Comments: Titanium bolts are commercially available at titanclimbing.com/. Also, it would probably be good to mention the Titt bolts which are similar to the wave bolt in many ways, but require less glue to use. Titt bolts are also available in a duplex stainless which is much better than the Austenitic (304 and 316) stainless steels in marine environments.

Comments: The Hardware Wall is located 5.9 miles from the left hand fork turn-off. Because of the dirt road it takes ~15 minutes to get there from the left hand fork turn-off. You will pass the Friendship campground at 3.6 miles, the Spring campground at 4.2 miles, the Blacksmith wall at 5.4 miles, then at 5.9 miles you will hit a "Y" in the road, take the right hand fork and drive another 50 feet to a pullout with a campfire ring where you park for the Hardware Wall. Cross the small stream and walk th... more >>

Comments: based on the size of the biner in that photo this doesn't look like a 1/4" bolt. I'd guess it's a standard 3/8" bolt.

Comments: Just as an FYI, all biners on this route have been upgraded to steel (Petzl Steel Djinns and Trango Steel Wiregates).

Comments: @DisturbingThePeace, i'm not saying that the austrialpin biners are not suitable for lowering off since two 10kn biners is more than enough, but compairing a breaking strength to a safe working load is comparing apples to oranges. A safe working load of a quicklink is generally 1/4 or 1/5 of the breaking strength so a 1760 lb swl quicklink actually has an average breaking strength of at least 7040 lbs or ~ 31kN.

Comments: I replaced both chains today so the route is good to go. The comment above about a broken bolt is incorrect. A bolt did break somewhere (I've seen the photos), but it wasn't on this route or any of the other routes on the main 29th street crag wall. All bolts are solid and ready to whip on at the main 29th street crag.

Comments: Awesome Ben, thanks! I thought it felt a bit soft for 5.11c, but that's all i could figure out based on Misty's topo, updating the route info now.

Comments: The problem with stainless bolts is that they will fail due to stress corrosion cracking. The fittings on boats have several things going for them which make them less susceptable to scc, number one is that there generally isn't a constant tensile stress on them like in the case of a bolt, and the second thing is that they generally have very smoothe surfaces on them that are easy to clean and don't trap corrosive ions. A wedge bolt on the other hand is under constant tensile stress and traps c... more >>

Comments: Really? You're in thailand right next to the ocean, and you're using stainless wedge bolts? Have fun rebolting in a year when your bolts start breaking off under the weight of a quickdraw.

Comments: I think DCrane is right, the discription sounds like Disorder. I also didn't see anything like this (or really anything at all worth climbing on the right corner).
