Comments: This problem is the easy warm-up in the same little mini-amphitheater as Charlotte's Web and Grotesque Old Woman.

Comments: This problem felt like it took me *ages* to put together even knowing the beta. I must have had a mental block on it or something, because once I finally got it, it didn't seem too bad. That said, I still have more trouble with this thing than any of the other "V5"s around. Maybe it just plays to my weaknesses..

I have heard that both the sloper side-pull and the good crimp used to be worse, and the problem has gotten a little harder in the past week or two. The decent undercling that you c... more >>

Comments: I can't really add too much of a second opinion other than to say it's freakin' hard. On other climbs in the 7 range here and at the 'yard I can usually make at least a competent effort, but I can't even find a position to get my feet off the ground on this thing. Do you use the foothold that's way out to the left and try to throw, or am I completely botching the beta?

Comments: I still listen to those guys every now and again, though I don't have that album. I only have Independent Worm Saloon and ElectricLarryLand.

I can't remember if that's a band I picked up off of Headbanger's Ball or from the videos they showed during Beavis and Butthead...

Comments: Yet again I got info for this problem from here. I also took the grade from a video linked on their site; I haven't sent it yet, but I'll give it a star rating and my opinion on the grade if/when I put it together.

Comments: I again found info for this line at this site, but this line may be "The Kiss Off" from the Ocean's Eleven guidebook. If anyone knows for sure or knows the real name (I made this one up), post up and I'll change it.

Comments: I just made up a name for this problem because I don't know any information about it. I've only seen it mentioned here, but they don't mention a name for it. If anyone posts up with the proper name or FA info, I'll gladly change what I've put here.

Comments: It's mentioned here, but it only mentions that EZ did the line, no name, grade, or whether it was TRed or lead. If no one can chime in with definite info, I'd say give it your own name after you send it.

Comments: There is a trail restoration day planned for June 13th for many of the trails affected by the Jesusita fire. Not too many details on the organization of the day yet, but the general plan is to meet at Skofield park and then set out to work on the Jesusita, Tunnel, Rattlesnake, and the West Fork of the Cold Springs trails.

Check this blog for further updates.

Comments: Yea, there are a few pebbles scattered about. Unfortunately, there are even fewer that I can actually climb. It looks like you guys are all tearing up Gov. Dodge this year, I can't believe the amount of new stuff you've found!

Comments: It was nice and dry yesterday, and I spent a lot of time getting to know the landing from the dyno. Fortunately it's a nice, clean landing. Fun problem, but I never was able stick the move.

Comments: While the tree is certainly close enough to stay on your mind while you climb, I fell off this problem a few times and had no trouble with the tree, either. I really enjoyed the problem - good, powerful sidepulls and gastons to a dicey fingerlock before the top-out jugs.

Comments: A friend told me that he goes straight up to the bad right-hand pinch, then brings his left foot up into a hand/foot match heel hook, then goes out with his left hand to the crimp. I gave it a couple of half-assed tries that way a week or two ago, but my right hand kept popping off the pinch as I tried to move over the heel.

Comments: Yea I'd like to check out the Reserve sometime. I've never bothered cause from what I hear there isn't much there that I stand a chance at getting up. Let me know the next time you head out that way and I'll try to join you.

Comments: Remo - Where is this? It looks like there are a couple nice lines on this boulder.

Comments: Wow, nice lead, man. I can't imagine going up that nightmare face over over crappy gear...Anyone know if that was the first lead this thing has seen?

Comments: The book's description is limited, so I wasn't sure how close you can get to the Man and Superman arete on this climb. The sequence we figured out used holds that were just left of the arete, and it made it feel a easier than 12, so I figure we were probably off route. It was a fun problem either way.

Comments: I tried this thing several times yesterday. Maybe I was missing something, but I thought the roof sequence was much harder than anything on P.O. Wall. I never was able to stand up over the roof...

Comments: No problem. Let me know if the description for Air's location isn't clear enough and I'll try to clarify it.

Also, if anyone knows the real names of that Unknown or any FA info, let me know and I'll change it.

Comments: I have seen the piton, and I've often wondered what it was for. While I've never been on Tarantula, I always thought it went up to the higher roof, then came right into the Gargantua crack. On Gargantua, I don't get anywhere near the pin until after pulling the roof, and then it's at my feet and worthless. I'll have to try this "Targantula" variation the next time I'm out there...

Comments: I think Jeremy's comment on the main page refers to this climb as "Now or Never". I tried it once last year and thought it was really fun.

Comments: On the three new routes near the north end by Jeremy, the hanger is loose on the first bolt of the left-most climb. It looks like the nut just needs tightening, but that's just my guess. I don't know nearly enough about placing bolts to say exactly what's wrong...

The other two routes were really fun, thanks for putting them up.
