Comments: You most likely found the routes on the Backslide Wall that are described in the frequently updated Rakkup app:

Comments: It's great to know that there's a true Wondervue local enjoying those routes and getting to know some of the neighbors. As you found through your research, it is on public land and the access is too. We did have trouble some years ago with one of the locals, a guy who seemed to be late 40s or 50s, and he got really bent out of shape, especially when the drill came out. Everyone else was friendly, but the one guy was not a reasonable person to deal with and seemed to have a reputation with the... more >>


Location: NC : Cathey's Creek Crag

Comments: Not hardly a troll, just frustrated with trying to find what appeared from the description to be an easy to find crag. What exactly does "above" mean, up the hill on the north side of the valley, upstream, or uphill on the south side? Like I said, a few sentences about the exact location of the crag would really help. Something like X.X miles west of the intersection of Cathey's Creek Road and US 64 is a bridge across Cathey's Creek, park on the north side of the creek, a faint trail leads fr... more >>

Comments: Mike,

I was able to find the falls after driving back & forth a bit, but the location of the crag was still a mystery & with the June foliage in full bloom and checking out a few dead ends it ended up being a waste of time. A few sentences of added details about the exact location of the crag would have really helped.

Having put up over 500 routes myself, I understand the work involved, but if you are going to post up a crag, at least give decent directions, or fair warning that a crag may ... more >>

Comments: Having been a party to the original excavation, um I mean development of that crag, thanks for helping maintain the place it does have some logistical challenges. Thanks Michael!!

Comments: No problems getting dogs to Crimpfest, & if gets too hot, there you can always swing over to Red Wall or Mirror Wall.

Comments: It would be easier to enjoy this resource if the original poster had put more time into providing actual directions to the crag rather than sermonizing about climbing ethics.

Comments: Josh, the only area that's in any published guide is Devil's Head Rock down along Jackson Creek. None of the other crags are affected.

Comments: If it's any consolation, the bolt hangers are probably spinning more easily because the new hangers are thinner than the original cold shuts. I think I added washers when I upgraded the hangers a few years back, but the hangers could spin more easily in that configuration. The Rawl 5-piece bolts are designed in a way that the hanger or equipment attached can vibrate or move without compromising the bolt itself. If the bolts themselves actually appeared to move, then that's a different story.

Comments: Is it possible to rap the Nose with a single 70M cord? It would appear so from the description.

Comments: I think if one didn't pick up that the low crux works best by going left on the arete, the route would seem a whole lot harder. I got suckered into staying on the face at first before discovering the much better way staying over on the arete.

Comments: Glenn,

Thanks for noting that & rappelling should work fine for anyone doing the route soon hereafter. In fact, even with single links, our rope was less snarled than what often occurs with Fixe single ring anchors.

Comments: The Sunrider bolts that were removed for the recent upgrade were tested at the CSU lab and all of them sheared at about 3800 lbs. This was a pretty good test result considering the appearance of the bolts and that they had been extracted with the Greenlee. More information on the test results will be available soon.

Comments: Interesting, I was a student of the Southeastern School of Mountaineering that summer & also climbed with Tom a fair bit back in those days. He was certainly quite the character. I remember him stitching up his own eyebrow after pulling too hard on an ice tool he was using to climb a tree.

Comments: Pocket "natural"? The entire cliff was manufactured, so technically nothing there is natural. The pocket could have been from drilling to set the explosives.

Comments: The climbing is OK, but the bolting somewhat lacking, perhaps because they were trying to force the line too much. The runout above the second roof is bad not only due to lack of pro but because the rope tends to catch under the roof. An added bolt would fix that. There's also a loose block near the top that needs to go too.
