Comments: Still cleaning up a bit, keep an eye out when belaying. Cool movement though.

Comments: Already quite clean despite being so new (much more so than Ghetto Activity). Route climbs really well... fun moves through the roof! Thanks for the effort on some new routes, Matt.

Comments: Haha, I saw this and was like "I've never done this climb!" The gears slowly turned and the world made sense again. Nice work fellow SteveZ! Can't wait to be back at the lake again.

Comments: I forgot to post earlier, so not sure if they're still there. Anyway, a week or two ago the hanging draw that you would fall on at the crux (an old, neon Spirit, I believe) is in really bad shape. The dogbone is half worn through from rubbing on the rock. This is actually kind of hard to see while climbing as it is worn all the way across, but only on the side lying against the rock. Hope that makes sense and keeps someone from popping that draw on a fall especially since many people unclip the ... more >>

Comments: Hey Peter, not sure if you're still looking (or if you already climbed this!) but you don't need gear for echoes proper. It's "sportily" bolted however echoes proper doesn't go to the top of the cliff, it stops at the bottom of poseidon adventure/echoes extension. You would indeed need gear for PA but not for EE. Hope that makes sense.

Comments: Haha, I'm flattered.

Anyway, I think he would come back to WI and have an ex/current local crank fest! Anyone interested? Heading home last week of July for Melin's big shindig.

Comments: I'm curious... did the rope actually break recently? I was there last week Friday (7/2/10) and one of the ropes (pink/purple one I believe) had significant core exposed on the boulder end of the tyrol where it rubs on the rock. It also seemed to sag very close to the water even with my bag on the line and a short draw. Maybe they need more tension or maybe the water is just really high? If it did break, I have another rope I could donate to the cause... but haven't tensioned one before. I'm sure... more >>

Comments: Well I definitely appreciate your efforts on the area! While this one didn't work out, I would say that some of them are indeed classic worthy (like Night Stick!). Like you say too, great quiet-have-to-yourself area. Thanks for posting it up, too.

Comments: Luke, I can understand why you bolted this... it looks nice. The different rock bands etc. Even the moves were kind of cool/bouldery. That said, yes, it's total choss. Win some and lose some I suppose.

Comments: Does anyone happen to have info on the bolted line just left of Black and Tan? It currently has draws hanging on it all the way up. We climbed on the face up to the first set of anchors before the wild looking roof moves and noticed a red tag on the first bolt (past the first anchors). Is this route/extension new? Is it open to climb on? Thanks!

Comments: I wanted to echo Melin's comments. It is short but I thought the routes had nice moves... and it's only a short jaunt up the hill to check it out.

Rhoads, are you still moving out to CO? We have a few longer routes here ;)

Comments: The fourth bolt is still loose (again, not just the hanger but the bolt itself) as of 7/1/09. I don't really know how to fix such things.... The chains up top are really handy though, thanks for putting those on!

Comments: Thanks Melin... I hope I still do when it happens. Bummer it's not in a couple of weeks though.
Anyway, somehow managed to drag myself up this one clean. Saved the falling for some other routes that day ;-) (hows the hand Chris? and nice lead too!)
