Comments: We really appreciated the fixed lines for the approach and the shiny new rap anchors on Zoro and would like to thank those responsible for the time and effort they expended providing for the safety of their fellow climbers.

Comments: Crux pitch is fucking fantastic! and actually protects reasonably well, though it doesn't look very optimistic from the bottom...

Anyhow, the tree that appears to have been somehow serving as rappel anchor at the bottom of the first cruxy pitch (with the face climbing and drilled pins) seemed rather ambivalent regarding its connection with the ledge it currently inhabits... Perhaps more intrepid climbers than us either summit or simply down climb the easy terrain beneath said uncertain tree (... more >>

Comments: I think I was in a bad mood when I made that comment...

I agree that ascents should be ground up and chalkless.
I guess that what was really troubling me was that I was indoors, writing a paper on Shakespeare instead of climbing in Paradise.

My point, which I think was valid, was that offending top-ropers do not know that they are offending, which, now that I consider, is obviously why Mr. Davidson made his post. My apologies.

When it really comes down to it, the Forks is just not a place fo... more >>

Comments: All due respect (and I think plenty is due), Mr. Davidson, but fuck that. I lead my climbs now, but when I was starting to climb a year ago, I knew there was more to life than slimy sport climbing at the pit, but had no trad rack, no friends with trad racks, only the desire to climb beautiful splitters. So we set up top ropes, and learned, and now we lead. To me, that seems a reasonable progression. We were respectful of others and the area, actually spent much of our time on sunny, unpopula... more >>
