Comments: I'm with Bob. Only lead this once. Whipped onto the pin. Now the pins are gone, bummer.
Just heard a story of someone whipping, ripping the gear from the slippery flared pinscar, and falling past the belay... yikes...40 footer?...no thanks.
Let's put the pins back in!

Comments: Nice pitch.

Kinda exciting from the new sport climb anchor to the crux roof. The crack is grainy and exfoliating with a large flake that is not very solid. Once to the crux roof, the gear becomes great. Good call on bringing extra big fingers gear.

There was no way I was downclimbing to the good, bad, and jacked anchor. I left a bomber #9 stopper and biner and lowered to that anchor. It would be nice if it stayed there for an easy descent. I assume an anchor is out of the question because of t... more >>

Comments: There is a new 2 bolt anchor on this climb about 10' down and right of original tree anchor. UNFORTUNATELY this ledge is covered in poison ivy. Be careful. If you are sensitive to poison ivy, you could likely use the tree anchor and avoid the poison ivy.

Comments: Thank for the responses.
Have you guys ever broke a bolt? This really took me buy surprise. The metolious hanger is usually a happy sight.
Geir, yes that is the bolt in question. One of the two anchor bolts had the same extremely rusty look to it. It is equipped with a metolious rap hanger. Luckily (and thanks to the person who put the other bolt in) the upper bolt in the anchor is new with no visible corrosion. Thanks to the tucson locals for doing such a good job of keeping up your crags... more >>

Comments: Broken bolt!!!!!!!!!!

The first bolt of pitch 2 broke yesterday. This bolt was about 2' above the first pitch anchor. The bolt seems like it was used mostly to avoid a factor 2 fall onto the anchor. The climbing to the next bolt is not so difficult, so the route is still doable.

The leader hung on the bolt to help in the transition to leave the anchor. About four bolts up the leader fell on a new bolt at the crux. The rope straightening out broke the bolt that he had hung on moments... more >>

Comments: An opinion on the closing time at Staunton:

A misdemeanor for being out of the park late? This seems like an extremely aggressive solution to a problem. I don't want to lose my job or spoil the possibility of getting a job for being late getting back from a climbing area. Climbing takes time, and being late is an extremely common scenario.

Putting a time limit on doing something dangerous is a terrible idea. Getting down safely should be the priority of climbing parties. A punishment for be... more >>

Comments: A fixed nut is stuck where the crux gear goes. The WIRE is BROKEN. Bring a hammer to get this piece of junk out. It is a bit of a runout through the crux, and the broken wire is in the way of getting the best piece in at the crux. I was able to get a #3 BD nut but could have gotten a larger one with a bigger wire (guess the small wires do break) if the broken one is removed.

Comments: Long pitch, I ran out of runners with 80' to go. Don't forget some small wires/rps. Good climbing, often big holds and lots of stances. Some lose rock. Anchor is 2 bolts reduced down to one smash link (never understood this practice, why have 2 bolts with only one link?) We left 2 junky biners, maybe they will be there for you or you may choose to leaves some.
