Rope is on The Rise of Punk. I broke a foot hold off at the crux. Patrick was trundling golf ball to cantaloupe sized rocks from the second tree up top (circled in red). Do not veer too far left out of the crack up there- the rock is loose and brittle in spots.

Very confusing to me, as well. Part of the blame should be put on all the climbing magazine action shots glorifying people NOT wearing helmets. It just isn't cool to be seen wearing a helmet. Many will wear a helmet biking, but not for climbing. I guess their hair doesn't look as good for the photos.
I don't even walk around the base of the walls without a helmet anymore. And I am sure I look like a dork:) Aug 7, 2017

+1 on wearing the helmet even while walking around the base. I'd rather be an alive dork than a stylish corpse with an empty melon... Aug 8, 2017
