Comments: I just can't imagine where I'd stop to clip another one. But I suppose I will have to add a bolt. That part used to be inconsequential before I pried all the good holds off :( so sad to see them go. Glad it still climbs well however :)

Comments: Haha Dave told me you guys had to work this one ;P
I was surprised to hear you had pulled hand holds off, I did it a few times and didn't find that I pulled on anything, More of a straight mantle... That being said I broke a few tiny holds with my feet... This route reminds me of Bolt Line and it brought back memories of when that stuff at The Meadows was newer and exfoliating more. It will end up being solid I'm sure :)

As for the grade, I am changing it to 5.7 since we couldn't real... more >>

Comments: Ah, gotcha. Makes more sense. If you are not being cautious you could cause a lot of trouble up
There for sure. Thank you for letting us all know.

Comments: Scary... Where did the block come off of... I took a pry bar to everything i could last time I was up there...
we have been running laps on the routes specifically looking for loose stuff with nothing but tiny chips breaking loose, even before i brought the crowbar up...
Anyway, Of course safety is my first concern so thanks for the heads up...

Comments: We were on the fence about the crux of this one being 5.6 or 5.7, if you climb it please vote on the grade here and I will bump it up if need be. A couple of people already told us 5.7... Also, on the easy slab section there are some crumbly feet that traffic should take care of pretty quick, but be careful.

And yeah, the beta will make more sense once All the holds are fresh in your mind...
It is hyper-technical...

Comments: The moment many (ok, a few) have been waiting for! I sent this thing :)
My vote is in the 12c range (if you are 6' tall ish) Harder if short for sure...

SPOILER ALERT! RIDICULOUS MICRO BETA!
From the rest with my right heel in the jug, I had a left hand on the Arete and right hand on a small side pull crimp way out right, brought my right foot quite high to the left end of the edge that sits on top of the big side pull jug (this foot makes for great balance) left heel around the Arete, left han... more >>

Comments: Again, with empathy to the injured climber, my mind goes directly to how to better educate new climbers rather than how to dumb down the climbs to better suit unprepared parties.
I try to do my part to teach safe climbing practices which is what i personally do for a living but it is something the entire community should be united in. I don't see it as much as i once did... or perhaps its the sheer mass of new climbers out there that makes it hard to reach people.

Comments: It would have been sketchy if I hadn't previewed it and found the key nut placement. So, when i did it I felt safe but if the nut wasn't sound and it popped, then you would have a problem... I tested the move and found the gear before sending it "head point style"... easy to check it out after leading Gunboat..

Comments: normally the latest date for the cliffs to reopen is Aug 1st. Most years the closures are lifted well before this. I have seen no signs up there recently so I am thinking that it should be good... But if waiting a week is fine you should surely be in the safe zone by then :)

Comments: Cool :) that's one thing I love about route development. It is absolutely a creative act even though we are working with what is already there. Neat to see what different people will pick out. With your vast experience I'm sure your line is well picked!

Comments: No worries dude. I just saw your bolts Monday (didn't climb it yet though) as i expected it follows a different line than mine. mine was on the very smooth wall to the right and it went straight through the roof... our lines would only have shared 8 feet of climbing or so and mine would have been more like 12+/13a (and the first half would have crumbled :/. I might still like to put a 1 or 2 bolt variation through the roof on the cool moves I found. if that would be ok. I knew you wouldn't put u... more >>

Comments: Years ago, after inspecting the spot, I actually went so far as to drag my drill up to put up a route in this very section... I gave it a good cleaning then started testing moves, I found the rock where I was climbing to be crumbly under my feet and decided the line would only last a few ascents before it was no good. I hope you found the sweet stuff it certainly was a beautiful piece of rock and I was sad to not put it up.

Comments: there are a few routes on my list that I just went to the spot described and climbed something that sounded close enough. I believe it started up the off width near the bottom of toady dreams. just have some fun with it then check it off :)
