Comments: Ummm, yeah. The last pitch shown here was climbed many times by climbers going into Starshine in the '80s and I presume earlier. The 'Three Stooges gully' below there was climbed sometime in the early 2000s and is basically a walk up a frozen creek. Four of us had climbed the 2 pitch frozen waterfall down in the valley that you can see from the top of Starshine (worth doing, requires much cold weather) when someone suggested '@... more >>

Comments: These have some advantages when drilling by hand ground up on the lead which,if you find yourself in that position, trump all these long term concerns. I placed a lot of these in NC during the '80s and '90s, because my main concern was staying alive on that ascent. I could not give a crap about a theoretical climber 20 years out.

Comments: yeah, Faber led the FA on P1 (and you never thanked me you little bast@rd--I did spot the line ;). And it's harder than 5.9). I went back later to make the first abortive attempt on P2 and that didn't work out either since I didn't have the bolt kit and wouldn't run it out on the tri cam you can fish in there. So I don't know how my name got on this other than I embarrassed myself on it early and often. For that matter, ML and I were the first to start up the vaporizer line in like '89... more >>

Comments: I think this is 'Stick Clip this, M***** F*****', which Steve Ritchie and I did way back in the day. I know we did it before Shannon. There actually is a placement for a weird looking but totally bomber 0.5 tricam (think upside down at a strange angle between a couple of knobs) about 15-20' up.
