Comments: First off this is not a new route. I know it was climbed in the mid 90's. Either way adding a set of anchor bolts to an existing route is wrong. The anchor you added is right on Gemini Cracks. The anchor is also being used to TR First Return now too.

I'm guessing that these new TR anchors make it easier for your guide service to operate there?

Since you brought up Ron the AAC education director... are you claiming that the AAC is in support of this? Did... more >>

Comments: The real legacy of North Carolina climbing is a tradition ground up ethic.

In this case a known route (it's even listed in the old guide as a TR) was rehearsed on top rope, retro bolted on rappel, and over graded... everything about this route is wrong. Right down to the name which is an insult to the history of North Carolina climbing.

Comments: Like I already told you... This is not a new route.

Calling everyone who disagrees with your bullshit claim of it being a FA a liar is pathetically weak but I understand that it's your only defense...

I see you dodged the question about the retro bolts. Most people start to figure it out after their bolts get the chop but apparently not you...

Comments: How is this a new route? Jeep climbed it in the 80's and it was also led a few times in the 90's. What's up with the retro bolts on it? Haven't they been chopped and replaced a few times? Usually people start to get a clue when their bolts get chopped but apparently not in this case.

Comments: The obvious couloir on the right is not the Baranow couloir. The Baranow couloir tops out in the snow field left of the summit.

Comments: I heard that several of the routes I put up have had bolts added. I hear that arete that Clay and I did, without any bolts, at Loitter Land is now a clip up and has been renamed, too.

Comments: Is that the crag with Arm and Hammer? The Red Rock Simulator?

Comments: The photo in the center, traverse in from the left to the finger crack, is Sunday Strole. Ian Altman did the FA with someone, sorry it's been a while and I can't remember.

Comments: Are people still climbing here? We put up several lines in this area in the late '90s/ early 2000s. The "unknown" photo of the 5.7/8 is the Red Rocks Simulator. Don't remember the name of the one called 5.10b in the photo, but Crystal Davis and I did the FA. I remember that we called the thin crack/seam that it shares an anchor with The Seamster.
