Comments: Well I am now back in the UK..Thanks chaps for your nice comments. I really loved the desert and hope you all have a great time exploring its wonders. You are very lucky to have so much adventure just there for the taking... do not take it for granted.. it is far more rewarding than clipping bolts on sport routes or jumping on mattresses..as usual just winding you up.. or am I? ... All the Best... Paul

Comments: Thanks grk . Pulling up on one finger a couple of feet above a bolt is nothing compared with the risks involved in a true climbing adventure... rock or alpine... An experience that is about life itself..two sports that are now many many miles apart.I guess to each his own...

Comments: Met him a few times at the early trade shows. Great chap and a visonary with regards climbing gear. Loved his fiberglass peg hammer best I have ever used. Another loss from the tigers of yesterday.

Comments: History of Yellow Brick Road and Liquid Sky. After John Bouchard retreated due to a hernia after bolting half way up the yellow wall Jeff Pheasant and I returned in 1976. I bolted the rest of the yellow wall to join the cracks of what is now know as Liquid Sky followed this on normal aid to the top.

Comments: Only a forty foot runout did not realized we put the bolts in that close.Actually its sad really that many climbers these days are still insisting on doing one pitch climbs..This is a good example of a route that has SIX pitches.Maybe there is an epidemic going around of acrophobia?

Comments: Just a detail:- The first ascent of the Bridge pitch was mostly done on aid by Joe Cote,John Porter,Paul Ross in 1972 as the 4th pitch of The Mines of Morea. The FFA of the Bridge pitch was done four years later in 1976 by Jimmy Dunn.

Comments: Looks great at least as long a climb as most of the FA's on here. Keep up the good work.I really think there is an epidemic among climbers of acrophobia.

Comments: Best to have 4 wheel drive to get to Three Fingers Canyon. The first wash can give problems to two wheel . Its about 30 mins walk from the wash to the canyon.Little Spotted wolf parking is easy with two wheel.

Comments: Always best on any of the Reef climbs to take along some back up webbing. Some of the climbs were put up over nine years ago so original webbing might look a bit old.On many of the more current climbs we have left biners on the rap stations.
