Comments: Nick, not to burst your beaming bubble, but the "bad beta = new route" concept (and debate) predates your time at the Lake and Mountain Project (or as it was originally known in those halcyon days of the early millennium, climbingdevilslake.com). And while it's an accepted tool in some parts of the bouldering community; I think we should still fight the good fight on the route side.

And yeah, I quoted you on the EC, because I think that quote is spot on about leading at the Lake. ... more >>

Comments: My instinct here, without looking at it, is that this is just "FMOB" with bad beta. I'll reserve that judgement until I can out there and take a look at it, but boy I find it hard to believe that one could fit another route in between "FMOB" and Hero's Fright (where aspiring ascensionists are already warned about mixing holds on the two routes).

And Doug, maybe one of us admins should split Chicken D/T and then rewrite FMOB to reflect reality. I nominate you because ... more >>

Comments: Well-protectable, but kinda-generic 5.9 hand crack, to a couple sting-in-the-tail 5.10 moves. Worth a go if you're in the area and looking to climb at the grade.

Comments: A pair of friends and I skied up & down this on a perfect bluebird day in April after a spring snow. One of my best days in the mountains.

Comments: I'm fairly tall, and I felt (as strange as this sounds) that it was easier to start this from a sit and throw for the high RH sidepull.

Comments: Steve,

Thanks for your blessing on this - the Wisconsin climbing community will benefit greatly. I think with the addition of the bolts, this is destined to become a classic. Leading this on gear must have been quite an interesting experience - pre-send rituals or not. Hopefully the bolts will give modern-day climbers the opportunity to contemplate what was a bold, impressive ascent.

Cheers,
James

Comments: I think this is one of the best routes I have done in the RRG. I found it well-bolted, engaging and fun. Don't miss this one if you're at Pebble Beach and climb the grade.

Comments: Admittedly, I changed the route description (and cleaned up some no longer relevant comments) to describe the route's current state. I didn't think you'd mind Nick - I apologize if my assumption was wrong. I thought about reassigning the route to me - but I felt you deserved the to keep the credit for the original contribution. Let me know if you think my solution warrants editing.

For what it's worth, I had a chanc... more >>

Comments: Ha!

Joel,

They can't all be four stars, and compared to adjacent routes, this is the last 5.8 I'd climb.

Comments: This would make a great final to pitch to a wintry ascent of Great Ridge. Felt very alpine-esque.

Comments: I move that the description of this route is the first MP description fully-plagiarized from Jay's new guidebook.
