Interesting movement. I need to get the clips dialed. You have 4 bolts right in a row of each other, not spaced very far apart, yet I do not believe all are necessary. They are however useful if you n

Long reach but you have good feet. I feel that this is where the route really starts about V4-V6 bouldering moves from here on out. Can't cop out any more full rest stances.

Location: CO : Boulder : Flagstaff : Red Wall : Eric Varney Direct (V5)

Comments: Did Eric Varney Direct from the stand start (right hand in "soap dish" hold) and from a low SDS starting from the flake moving left to the "jug pod" and right hand into EVD's "soap dish" hold. I mistook the lower SDS for Moffat Direct, but upon reading the beta blog, the left "jug pod" is off for both hands and feet if attempting MD.

The lower SDS start from the flake seems like a more logical and straightforward line for EVD and doesn't really change the difficulty. In my opinion, the lower st... more >>

Comments: Does anyone have thoughts on the quality of the permadraws on this route? The nylon and dyneema bake in the sun all year long, and when I was up there recently (12/22/15), things looked a little sun bleached. Curious if anyone has any means to change these things out? Or would it be best just to hang your own draws? Would climbers have a preference to these being replaced with nylon, dyneema, or could segments of chain similar to that on Mighty Dog be appropriate? Just wanted to put some feelers... more >>

Comments: I don't live there or climb in Joshua regularly enough to even consider placing bolts in the area, and I do not plan on placing bolts there. Like I said "heated" discussion... Just curious what others do. The tatt rappel that is there just seems to be an accident waiting to happen and not because of the quality of the webbing more due to the precarious nature of the slung blocks. I don't particularly remember the terrain that leads to the summit, but perhaps one could reach the summit from the p... more >>

Comments: How are climbers choosing to descend off of climbs like Championship Wrestling? Are they downclimbing by Sphincter on the other side or are climbers using the old skety tatt with rap rings? The reason I ask is because my partner and I recently got in a somewhat heated discussion about rappelling off of the tatt and him wanting to place bolts where a seemingly logical safe bolted rap could be placed. I was opposed to adding bolts in the first place because we were only visitors to this area and w... more >>
