Hard to see and reach sidepull move at the first bolt leads to easier climbing on face and arete. Small cams for middle of the route. Top is protected by bolts, still a little dirty near finish. Fun route.


Route is left of the Old School crack on the arete/finger that makes the left hand border of the right wall of Jungle gyms crag. Bolted anchor.


Bolts at start and finish. Gear to .75" for middle.

You couldn’t have watched me drill the anchor bolts at the top of “Old school”, because I didn’t drill them.
The reason that route is called “Old school” and is uncredited to the FA’s is because those anchor bolts were at the top of that crusty crack line that had signs of being climbed already when l first explored that crag. The route “New school” I drilled the protection bolts on, and let A.F. Have the first go at. Thus the FA. Credit to her. The route new school shares that existing anchor.
After a little asking around among the cognoscenti, I found out who drilled the anchor at the top of “Old school” in 1992.
Would you like to keep making a fool out of yourself by making inaccurate assertions? It’s something that Millennials are good at I’ve come to observe.
Keep trying for validation, junior. It will come for you one day if you keep chewing your foot...
If you compare the brand of bolts and hanger, and the patina of the bolts I placed at the crag with those of the “Old school” anchor, it’s obvious they are of a completely different era.
But simple details like that seem to be consistently lost on clueless punks from the gym... maybe you should start vaping...? You seem angry and grasping at non-existent straws. Maybe getting laid would help? Nov 20, 2017

30 years old? Time must get real fuckin slow when you are perma-stoned. Watched you drill these one evening summer of 2012. That's 5 years since you are probably too baked to crunch the numbers. If you are going to fuck up the rock and drill holes, put in something that is going to last. Maybe you could be a responsible adult and replace your fuck up, use all that money you make selling swag and stems to kids in Girdwood for something worthwhile? Nov 18, 2017

I know! Almost like some anonymous stoner drilled them 30+ years ago...
