Locker, I had a chance to take a look at your routes this season. They look good, though I didn't get to climb them. Brandt's Booty and D&D are on Slab City. D&D is the route I soloed back in the late 90's. Looks like there are still a couple more easy lines worth doing?

Fecal Rock is actually called Hard Rock Cafe. Between A Rock And A Hard Place is located 25' to the left and was established several years prior to Potty Training. The formation was named at that time. Looks like there is also a couple more route possibilities on the formation.

Since you entered the info and have the editing button, it would be great if you could correct the Hard Rock Cafe formation name. And, not sure if you can, might have to ask Art (admin), seperate the two formations in to two crags. This will help when other routes are established on these two formations. thanks.

For the record I did not take the photo. It's a little on the "WASHED OUT" looking side... Aug 3, 2007

The photo you posted is not great, it does show the crags in question though. Brandt's Booty and D&D are on Slab City. I can't be sure untill I walk to the base, however it appears that D&D is the route that I soloed several years back. No biggie on the retro. It's difficult to see clearly in your photo if Potty Training is on the same formation as Between A Rock And A Hard Place. Is there a steep difficult route, starting inside a chimney left of PT? If so that formation is called Hard Rock Cafe. Looking foward to checking out your work this fall. Aug 3, 2007

"D&D" and "Brandts Booty" are BOTH on the same formation and it probably IS "Slab City"... that would make sense... Now we're getting somewhere...

"Potty Training" is on the formation in front of it...

Where we went south is when you thought the FIRST route was on "Slab City" I think...Close!!! Just "no Cigar"...

Now you win the CIGAR though because we DID do some routes on "SLAB CITY"...and of course you were correct that they were "easier"...

Might name the next route...

"Clueless at NJC"...

thanks DUH!...


EDIT:

"reread it several times if you need to"...

do you HONESTLY think it would do any good???...


Seriously though...

We've got it figured now...

NEXT!!!... Jul 27, 2007

duh!,

I do not believe this to be the same formation as you wrote of above...

It is the rock immediately across from Twin Towers (directly South)...

the route is FINISHED...

There is a SLAB behind it a bit (looks to have a FEW potential routes and if they are still there in the near future then...)...

is that the one you are speaking of???...

the one we put the new route on is not what I would consider a SLAB per sey...

oh well...

let me know please... Jun 11, 2007

If it is the formation I'm thinking it is, it's called Slab City. One route has been soloed on that formation, a couple of other route posibilities exist. Could be a popular easy wall if somebody took the time to develop it. Jun 11, 2007
