Comments: I wish there was more information on Mt Tam. Is the center line on Bootjack Instinct or Intuition? It's definitely harder than V3, more like v4/5.

Comments: Probably the only bad route at the Bear, but I hear the stuff to the far, far right isn't that good either. 5.11a or soft 5.11b.

Comments: Hey Sean, disregarding your "ego" comment, I find it funny that this appears to have riled you up. This a pretty sick line and was submitted solely to augment the database. There's nothing about Sun Plague that is an eliminate, all holds between it's start and finish are on, and obviously it's a link up. It starts on Sunshine, a legit problem, that links into the traverse and tops Black Plague, another legit problem. Thank you for informing me on the history of Nat's which I already knew.

Comments: I wouldn't be surprised if I weren't the first person to do that line. I thought it was such a cool and obvious line that isnt in the book and should have a reference and decided to dub it Deadwood.

Comments: Hey Jerry, so I did do the loop around which appears to be the Easy Tom. With the first bolt far to the right it seemed like the obvious way to go was to the jug/bulge. But the picture seems to suggest that Easy Tom goes to the left onto Swallow? When I did Uncle Tom I did the start the way I just described but stayed on Uncle after the second bolt. It seems like Jason, Swallow have over a dozen variations to them even tho there 3 climbs.

Comments: If "the crux is topping out" I take that this is referring to Sunshine stand, which i feel is more like a V4.

Comments: I have to admit, it is entertaining to see how a suggested downgrade gets everyone riled up. I'm not sure if it's cause certain egos can't handle a lower grade being suggested for something that they perceived to be harder. I'm sure we've all done V3s somewhere that have felt harder or V5s that felt easier than start to Kill Uncle. I'll call it a V4 start and know others who feel the same and am obviously aware of others who thinks it's harder. In the end, it doesn't matter to me what "you" thin... more >>

Comments: Hey Jerry, I've been traveling a lot all over California the last two years climbing in destinations from Echo Cliffs to Jailhouse, Tahoe to the Column of the Giants. Compared to 5.12's Ive done in all these areas, I whole heartedly feel Uncle Tom does not stack up to 12a's in these other areas. I think it's an excellent route, just don't believe it has enough umph to be 12a. If Jason is 12b, then Uncle is at least to grades easier than Jason. But that just my opinion.

Comments: Acording to what you suggest both Uncle Tom and Kill Uncle go at, 12a and minimum 12c respectively, there would be around a two letter grade difference or more between both routes. I find that there is a discrepancy between that and Mountain Project's consensus for both routes, 11d and 12a/b. There would have been an even smaller disparty if I would have voted 11d or 12a for Uncle Tom.

I don't find any significance in my failing to onsight Uncle Tom and the grade. I did it about two years ago w... more >>

Comments: First of all, my response was meant for one post in particular. And secondy, I don't see any huge relevance in your "onsight" comment. I believe 99% of climbers fall within that catargory of their limit being someone else's onsight. I agree that everyone is entitled to their opinions just as I am to mine, which includes grade suggestions.
