Comments: Perhaps someone who regularly climbs here can approach the landowner and explain that CT has a statute (Recreational Use Act, HB 1551) that exempts landowners from liability from people using their land for recreation.

Comments: Thanks. We were pulling it to the right. The bolts are accurate. I can see the bolts in the full res photo in PhotoShop and put the X next to them. It just looks weird because the angle makes everything foreshortened.

Comments: Do you pull the roof? Where? Go around it to the left? A couple of us were playing on this and think it is considerably harder than 5.8 if you are pulling the roof.

Comments: Looks like a miniature version of Reppy's Crack. You're not telling where it is? I'll tell you where to find some fun sport climbing in CT that is not on MP. You show me yours and I'll show you mine. ;-)

Comments: Jeff,

Three pitons? The ringed piton under and to the right of the crux overhang and the lost arrow piton above the overhang, kind of hidden.

The pitons are marked in the route photo here: climbri.org/ross.htm

UPDATE: As of 7/2017 there is only one piton on the route. None needed anyway.

Comments: Beautiful shot but the chalk does detract from it. I guess it is the "White" Mountains.

Comments: Mike,

He wins a battle here and there but he is losing the war. Ten years ago there were no bolted climbs in CT. Now they approaching 100 and more are popping up every week. Most of the people who climb with him clip bolts as well and just don't tell him. His days of dictating climbing ethics in CT is dwindling with his age.

Comments: Next time you see Ken Nichols you can thank him for chopping it. He climbs at Ross frequently. Runs laps on The Crack of Despair.

Comments: Isn't all bouldering contrived Jeff? ;-) Boulder #2 is much bigger and better than #1. Neither is exactly a destination worth traveling for.

Comments: If any route needs a separate rappel route from the climbing route this is the route. It would speed things up considerably and eliminate cluster fuchs at the belays with multiple parties going up and going down. Turn this into a two-lane highway and it will be more enjoyable for everyone.

Comments: Ben,

I can't think of anyplace where you would need more than a couple of 20 ft lengths of webbing or >50 ft length of static rope except maybe for the easy slab (Super Slab). There are trees close to the top of the cliff just about everywhere. Some sport routes have bolted anchors that are down aways and out of reach from the top without ropeing up. Have fun.

Comments: "Location

Chimney/cave left of "Limbomainac", "Resume Builder", and "Unemployment Line"."

Facing the wall, isn't this to the right of Limbomainac? Or maybe I didn't climb Limbomanianc and something else instead. Anyway Guanica is a fun route.

Comments: Warrants an entry? Boulderers enter in every little pebble in the country, so by their standards this IS a mountain. Put some bolts on it, and you'll have people lining up to climb it. :-)

Comments: Morgan, I guess I didn't get the tongue-in-cheek. Don't worry I never take these debates too seriously unless it involves a safety issue. It's just the rather silly pursuit of climbing up a rock.
