Comments: I have now climbed this one many times and accessed it from underdog (standard) and also from the top of Polly... getting in to it from Polly is cool but a good deal harder than the other way and you must take great care to reduce rope drag or it might feel like you are climbing the crux with a 30lb weight hanging from your harness...

Comments: UPDATE: Climbed it this evening! the chimney at the top is kneebar city :)
I placed a #4 stopper at the beginning, there were many pins (5 or 6 that i saw) i clipped 3 of them and skipped a few cause they were rotten. I was happy to clip the 3 new bolts toward the top.

The climbing was pretty good most of the way and spectacular for the last 20 feet... but loose rock, rotten pitons and even a small pricker bush will keep most from discovering it.

Comments: it's all good, just wanted to make sure people new to cannon didn't let down their guard...
we used to think rumney was safe from rock fall now it seems that nowhere is safe... constant vigilance! :)

Comments: there was a pretty good one on the original start of Mobey Grape... someone rode down a big block....

I've climbed a good bit on cannon and a little at the Gunks... I see more dangerous rock on Cannon and more dangerous people at the Gunks...

It is Cannon's dangerous reputation that keeps people smart up there which keeps them safe...

Comments: There is loose rock down there unless it has fallen off... you do not need to use it... hence i said weave between them... don't go anywhere on Cannon with the idea that there isn't loose rock to be avoided.... the cliff by it's nature is loose and slowly falling apart... that being said this is not a very sketchy pitch... just keep your wits about you as always :) happy climbing

Comments: i had a hard time placing my ass in it! haha
but really... the folks down at Parallel Universe were laughing one day when i was working it because due to my height my ass stuck well out of the climb.... they said it looks quite comical watching a disembodied butt making its way up the cliff... wish there were pictures from that angle!

Comments: just got a report of some pretty large rock fall happening here at the moment... be careful if you are out that way... If anyone can investigate safely to see if it has effected the climbs please report back...

Comments: when i forst climbed it 20ish years ago it was still thin but there was friction so it did feel 5.6... these days with that marble polish, yeah, its not easy to get established...

Comments: normally #2 cams are considered "hand sized" but as we know hands come in many sizes... for me this is perfect hands leading to a fist or 2 at the top... and as you say perfect feet :) an extra 20 feet of this climb would be great but i think another 500 ft would really get me going!

Comments: made good progress today which was fun... but the best part was trying out the giant swinging whipper from the upper section way left of the draw... such a cool spot to be flying around!
