Comments: You actually did those last 2 pitches? Looks hideous. Nice choss guzzling.

Comments: Wrong. Using a POWER DRILL is verboten. One can use a bolt gun, since you can hunt with guns in wilderness.

Comments: Yes, yes it is.

Who else would obscure the condition of the link by hiding it with water-loving webbing?

These need to go the way of the washer stack anchors.

I suggest people cut the webbing off when they run into such.

Comments: I told you YEARS ago where the line was Ten. How dare you not believe me, the ultimate of guide-memorizing gumby climbers!

Comments: Thanks. I was afraid of that. It'd be some sweet sweet action to be able to put more routes in Box.

Comments: 1st pitch can be easily TRed from Firefly anchors and is good entertainment on the way down. Didn't lead it, but 5.9 seemed a bit sandbagged--on lead anyway. I'll give it 9+.

Good pitch. Classic BCC: Foot holds appear right when you need them, but just barely...

Comments: 3 stars for the grade. Can't think of many 5.6's in BCC that have this kind of exposure. Only did the 1st pitch, but used micros to #1 camalot.

Comments: Yup, but the draw does keep the rope out of the crack. That's important for the modern gumby.

Comments: Led this today; took my little girl out for some fun.

If you don't clip any nearby bolts this route is full-on R. There was a 40' section that wouldn't take any gear at all--well maybe, just maybe a really bad #1 RP, of which I didn't bother.

That said, it's easy to clip a couple nearby bolts with a long runner, or just run it out as it's EZ.

Comments: It's an obscure Far Side comic. Caption reads, "The vet let me keep them. They're my testicles."

It's generally how I feel about my leading abilities.

Comments: In case you were wondering, Boissal isn't the only one annoyed with your spamming. If your guide has better photos/topos, then put them on here. We don't want to know about your "guide".

Comments: I personally don't see myself ever sending this rig, but keeping the beta to yourself is appreciated for many. Just sayin...
