Comments: One guide source gives the classic high-ball "High Electricity" crack problem a difficulty rating of V1.

My opinion is that it is a good thing for a climber attempting this problem to be "solid" on the V1 difficulty level, because of the serious consequences of a fall from higher up on the problem
... but ...
the actual difficulty of the moves is not more than V0-

Location: New York : Ramapo Powerlinez (Torne Va... : n. Perched Ramparts : 1. Enclosure
By: kenr When: Dec 24, 2016

view comment >>
Comments: As of November 2015, most of the base of the Enclosure is covered with a deep layer of impenetrable nasty prickers + thorns. The only route known to be accessible without prickers is Sigrun's Choice.

? Alternate Access ? Perhaps it might be possible scramble up to the base of the Enclosure area from around the far right end of the Sunny Picnics area. But this is blocked by prickers and fallen logs (as of November 2015).

Comments: Thanks for that alert / warning about not getting on an unintended route.
Photos and Lines drawn on photos can be tricky, so I might have misunderstood the guidebook photo (or my own photo).

Or maybe I've misunderstood the whole Twix route in my route Description text page? Since "JC w KC redux" seems to be saying that Twix starts on a finger crack, while what I climbed started up a wider crack.

Comments: Milestone for Rush on MP:
We now have at least one route public on MP for each sector of the crag.

Non-milestone:
There are still several routes both Sport + Trad visible on the crag, "secret" from before Rush was made public on MP, which are shown in the MP sector photos -- but have no route description page public on MP because:
a) the FA party has not yet taken credit publicly for it.
b) nobody else who knows enough about the route has taken the time to post an ... more >>

Comments: Thanks for your encouragement for me to lead, but my time is limited so my priority is on just finding what's worth leading, or worth bolting, or where we could use a rappel anchor.
So just now there are some nice routes open for you to grab the FA Lead credit -- and tell the rest of us what the Protection was like -- and what Name you want to give it. Or why it should get bolts. Or how you already added bolts - (no need to wait for my approval: I'@... more >>

Comments: Thanks for raising this. It stimulates thought ...

a) Difficulty rating: When I give a Top-Rope FA on one of my route decription pages, it means that somebody successfully climbed all the sequences on that route, and told me what they felt the level of difficulty was.

If I post a route description to MP showing no TR FA, that indicates that the Difficulty rating is an "estimate". For me that means that ...

As soon as someone Leads the route and notifies me by sending a message to my MP account -- or by posting a Comment on the MP description page for that route -- I will gladly give them credit on that MP description page for the Lead First Ascent.

Location: California : Sierra Eastside : June Lake Area : Roadside Ice

Comments: The rock on this cliff is quartzite I believe.

For similar rock nearby without the two No Trespassing signs, try
the Silver Lake crag area
just 0.3 mile further north.
The quartzite there is mostly rather sound and compact, with lots of features for fun rock climbing. Prettier view than the roadside crag.
. (Don't know if ice forms around the Silver Lake crag).

Comments: Anyone who does not want to see the route lines on a MP topo photo can turn them off any time by clicking to "uncheck" the box next to the phrase "Show Topo Overlay" (which is to the right of the photo, under the bold words for title and properties).

. (and can then see the lines again by clicking to "check" that box).

Comments: I worked out all the individual moves, but I don't (yet?) have the endurance to link them all togetther bottom to top. So my suggestion of a difficulty grade is a guess -- to be corrected by someone who can climb the whole thing without rests.

Comments: I still haven't gotten the redpoint (even on Top-Rope).

The holds are there, but I have not yet found the strength/endurance to make the traverse sequence go.

So the First Ascent awaits a better / stronger climber.
. . ? (or me on a better / stronger day) ?
