Comments: I think he was saying there were a few solutions to the existing route. Which is true, I've done it with a few different sets of beta.

Comments: I assume you are referring to the line running straight down the gully. I would not recommend ascending that thing. Last year I set up ropes on the left side of the gully that makes it a reasonable hike to get up to this area.

If anyone get's a chance before I do please take down and pack out the old line that is worn to hell. I just updated the description on the route to be more clear.

Comments: I finally led this one today and it was an amazing experience. so good!
I placed a #6 and didn't use a #5 so it seems like that is down to preference. Have fun what ever you place!

Comments: haha busted, I think I may have written that before I sent it however. I did break left and go through the roof on the send and I used the left kneebar. Now I really need to get back on it.

Comments: Hmm pretty sure I remember that hold and I don't think I used it. I will have to revisit the route sometime and see if I can figure out my own beta hahaha. Problem is there are still so many climbs I still need to do for a first time I never find time for hard repeats.

PS. Why is Rumney falling apart!?!? ::sad face::

Comments: Not sure how you are seeing it but the rope is headed back to my belayer who is anchored to a tree for various reasons. My first piece is blocked by my body.

Thanks for the congrats :)

Comments: Great to hear! Did you do the 5.11a extension I added on Wild Things? And how did 4 seasons go? I've gotta do that one.

Comments: I do not hold it against them for having a typo in the latest guidebook. So many routes to keep track of it's bound to happen, but to be clear "Corax" is from the Latin name for raven. We named the route Corax Crack because of a near by raven nest and raven crap we had to clean off of the climb. "Lorax Crack" as it is listed in the new guide implies that a Lorax crapped all over the route which I admit would be way cooler hahaha.

Comments: I have updated the description to account for the upgrade due to removal of dangerous rocks and the thorough cleaning/retro-bolting.

Comments: Your feet are on a small boulder, right hand on the arête left on a tiny edge and you jump to the crimpy left hand sidepull.

Comments: Unfortunately I don't have much else. I had some footage of me trying the moves on self belay but it's not helpful. I would however love to come up and play on it with you so I can get some photos on it and give you some beta.
Really psyched it's on your radar!!

Comments: This thing tumbled down from the cliffs all the way down to the bouldering area. We could see Jay's trail makings from the boulder! The race is on to put up a problem on it. Though as you can see I got the true FA ;)

Comments: That crux was no joke. I just edited the route to not be an "11-" anymore. Didn't seem to be anything minus about it any more. Fantastic route. Thanks for the photo Tom.

Comments: Olivia, I'm so glad you really enjoyed the climb! I agree it is very good and such a different style than the other climbs at Waimea. I made sure it was doable for shorter climbers before I bolted it but it is certainly much harder. I wouldn't be surprised if your send will be the "FSA" first short ascent haha. Let me know when it goes!!

Comments: I had a great time with Tom Bowker today as he gave me the grand tour of the cliff. I have spent a lot of time at Dickey but he has a unique perspective being the primary developer and most consistent visitor for the past 30 years! Thanks Tom for all the fantastic routes and sharing Dickie's rich history with me!

Comments: I had the honor of onsighting this today with Tom Bowker on belay. He had explained to me that a key hold at the crux had broken and it had gotten a good bit harder. I don't know what it was like before but the boulder problem crux was the hardest climbing of the day. What a fantastic route overall though. Right to the last move!
