Does anyone know anything about the ropes hanging off the Thinking Spot. They've been there for two weeks as of 10-5-13.

So McCall climbing people, what's up with the awesome alpine ridge with a 300 foot head wall about 3 miles past slick rock! I just soled the path of least resistance today. But with a partner gear food and some psyche there could be a pretty good little climb past slick rock. Inquiries hit me up.
