Comments: Okay Kids, how about taking some responsibility for your climbing areas. Instead of pointing out climbs with issues how about we educate ourselves and fix things when you find them or go back and fix them next weekend or next day. Check out school of rock on this site to figure out if something needs to be fixed. I thank you in advance for getting involved in the stewardship of our areas.

Comments: Not sure what you were on. Boot Hill North End has a number of new routes on it making the current topo out of date. If you can climb the existing routes you will not be troubled with the new ones. They actually allow you to make a full day out of going there. Do you have the new Guidebook SammyG?

Comments: That lone bolt might be the alternate finish I did to Endgame. You should do it as it adds a more direct cool but slightly harder pitch to Endgame. Geir shows it in green in his guidebook as a variation.

Comments: I was just deleting excess photos and saw some from Weathertop. This made me wonder if people were getting up there as I think it is one of the better cool weather crags we have.

Comments: I wouldn't have put in the low anchors but it was nice you did. This gives the 5.7 climbers another route to lead. If you climb 5.9 then continue up the extension as one pitch.

Comments: I am 5.6 and recall having to really keep my head together but not that the moves once committed to were all that hard but comitting. This is why it is still a 10 in the guidebook which of course means it could be 10+. Nice job leading this one as it is rarely lead.

Comments: It is a true old school classic. Nice to see it is getting some traffic if I can call it that.

Comments: Pretty sure Ben Burnham put in most of these bolts or was involved so I doubt they are 5/16ths and since I have done them all I would have noticed if they were. I have replaced dozens of older bolts on this mountain and have yet to replace any of the modern bolts I wouldn't have and sometimes did fall on prior to replacing them. 1/4 inch button heads are bad 3/8ths split shanks are bad as are 5/16ths but rarely. Go Climb have fun don't worry. CASA is worki... more >>

Comments: The crack to the left of old school executioner was done before Dave Deschamps, Bob Kerry and I did it. We mistakenly thought we had done the FA. Steve never did Stiletto. I talked to him about the crack and he never mentioned the arete except to say he had looked at it.

Comments: Thought I might try and solo this, but talk of a dirty finish had me downclimb rather than commit to the final 10 feet. Still enjoyed the mental game and am glad of my choice after looking at it from above. I am from Arizona and was surprised there wasn't a person out here. I wish there had been so I could have bummed a TR from them.

Comments: Lots of people have yet to learn all the lingo. No big deal.at least Jim both didn't point it out in front of a lot of people! Oh wait.I can assure you he wasn't trying to belittle you just trying to get you on the correct page. In person he would have looked at you with a wry grin and said it in a tone that let you know that. Have a good weekend.

Comments: Please don't use any cable draws up there. I have read that they wear out as the cable takes whipper after whipper after whipper which these draws get. Just get up there and tape the biner back on so it doesn't do that again. There is a whole discussion about how the pins were fucked up when these draws were added. I really suggest you tape that biner back on.

Comments: Any data to support the claim that cable draws last longer than chain draws. I have never heard of a chain draw wearing out but I have read about cable draws fraying. A couple of chain draws would be nice.

Jbak why don't you ask Cres if he cares, I bet he doesn't.
