Comments: We left a locking biner and a cordalette on a tree on the upper pitches of either this or Reggae yesterday (10/1/2017). If found, an email to kirk.woerner at gmail would be appreciated. Worth a shot :)

Comments: I attempted this climb with a wedding ring hanging from a biner. The idea was to ask my then girlfriend to marry me at the top. I did not make it... she said yes anyway :) I suppose I must go back and do this climb sometime.

Comments: It's funny how many different opinions there are about what's hard on this route and why. I'm tall, so although the bottom had worse protection (kind of crappy rock), I reached up high and just got a left hand that I bet others would have to climb to. That would be dangerous (R not X) in my opinion. I felt like my height actually hurt in the corner above, because although I could reach things (like the final finger lock) easier, my stem has to be way wider or farther down. The bulge on the l... more >>

Comments: Saying "Reach and forearms are the keys to this 3-move wonder." is an understatement. A very short, powerful reachy crux.

Comments: I agree with Jayer and others. While this is a good route [fairly] rated, it would be (is?) spooky off the ground for a beginning 5.8 leader.

Comments: "The belay below the pin ladder always seemed bomber to me."

I just did this (finally) for the first time. I also noticed the belay just below the crux pitch had slightly suspect rock. I think it's because we belayed too high. We started the the crux pitch by immediatly traversing hard right.

You can get a lot of gear there, but it's all based on one, fitted block about two feet by three feet that you sit on. It's unclear what is happening with it because it's fitted very well but on a sl... more >>

Comments: So, lemme get this straight. You have for years wondered why such an obvious line had never been bolted, you investigated and found clear evidence of prior ascent, and then rather than investigate and maybe get permission from the FA, you assumed that someone just didn't finish what they were doing and so bolted it up? Does this strike anyone else as odd?

Comments: "Ron, you are exactly right. These anchors should not have been placed to begin with - they are convenience anchors."

The anchors on Tagger at least saves the tree and are justifiable on that basis. The others might not make it through the revew process if they were to be added now since there are gear options.

In the case of Chockstone, this would just be nothing but convenience. The "second" pitch is easier even. Also, putting a bolt on Aerospace would be a travesty. It's scary, but that... more >>

Comments: R Thompson says: Consensus grade in its current state (who knows if more holds will break making it even harder) is 12b/c, which I suspect explains the notable difference in diffiuclty between the two routes. OMG, I'm so glad someone said this. I thought that route was harder than 12a. Did the holds break on the face at the very top?
