Comments: It worked out. Turns out I knew the other leader. He knew I was faster so I zipped up the arete keeping my rope on the left and protected the overhang off to the left. Once I was clear he finished and brought his second up who was somewhat inexperienced. Once she had gained the roof and I started bringing my second up with just a minimal delay. Probably best on a weekend to check the situation on YR first and gauge the timing of the likely traffic.

Comments: Nice photo! Good link-up. Do you have one with a bigger field of view? Pretty cool position just below the Yellow Ridge arete. I surprised someone one day on Yellow Ridge by popping up at the base of the arete as they were just about to gain it.

Comments: I don't know John. Sure looks like Andrew to me. What makes you think it isn't Andrew? Besides, very unlikely that Mr. Peterson would mislabel a Gunks photo.

Comments: JD, I was out at Crow yesterday bouldering and checked out Watusi. Looks like everything is intact to me. However I did note what appears to be a scar from a recently dislodged rock on Birds of Fire on the right side of the big block separating the two routes. Bouldered up but couldn't get high enough to get a good look at it.

The scar is beneath a bigger piece of rock above it. This is an area of key holds and pro placements for Birds of Fire. I hope it is not loose. Next time I'm out there wi... more >>

Comments: JD, if it is the block I'm thinking of, I don't think it is going anywhere soon. I always try to get a small cam or a nut in behind the block when leading Watusi before making the move up right and over the it.

Haven't been up Watusi in a while, is the old, ratty, corroded pin still at the crux? I have clipped it in the past but never trusted it. Always backed it up with an medium-sized cam in the horizontal off to the left.

Comments: It's the New Wave of climbing Tiff. Climb your favorite cracks now before they are bolted to make them safe. And just remember "you don't have to clip them if you don't want to".

Comments: Did the first two pitches of STH and then linked to Fireworks via a short Class 3/4 scramble. Fun and varied climbing.

Comments: Thanks for the route addition and history. I was telling Al Rubin about the route this weekend during a general Crow Hill discussion. He was surprised he had never heard of it. I couldn't remember the name or details. Now I can point him here. Not that either of us are ever likely to do it!

Comments: I think they are trying to bolt Dune. However where some of the bolts are placed don't seem to coincide with the route as I remember it from watching Zeb Enberg do it several years ago from the ground up with gear. He was belayed by his Dad who also had led it, albeit a number of years before, ground up on gear.

Get out and get your runs on Diagonal, CroMag, Jane, Tarzan, Watusi, Birds of Prey, Intertwine, Thin Line, etc. now before you have to do them while staring at bright and shiny hardwa... more >>

Comments: Hey Arthur,

Yeah, the approach would be a bitch in a wheelchair. Let me know when you would like to get out. We will get your ass up there and on to a couple of climbs.
