Comments: I think matt bolted it but someone else got the FA... it's in the 2009 book...
And it looked like the hanger was missing to me but I'd have to get up close to see... that might just be a stub left over from bolting process

Comments: Maybe a better system of ropes off to the left side would do the trick. As well as fixing a couple of spots to be easier to pass...

Comments: This was fun to top rope but still serious at that... There are directional bolts you can gain from path of the righteous and I placed a cam as well in the face... Wear a helmet, there is a LOT Of loose stuff in the upper part of the chimney... The pins it had been said were rotten, I gave a few gentle tugs on a slung pin and It didn't break it disintegrated leaving me holding the sling...

As for retobolting, I'd like that but it would be so much work to make it safe I'm not sure it would see ... more >>

Comments: With intense effort of mind and body I managed to onsight this climb today for it's second ascent and it was also my last 5.12a at Rumney :)

REPORT: Brady has been trying to get me to climb this thing ever since he realized I had a taste for the obscure. He said it was the best 12a are Rumney. I had planned to climb every route in my range anyway but of course I was intrigued. The story goes two ways... He was so right! and a little bit not haha. The condition of the route is currently deplorab... more >>

Comments: Yeah we had our work cut out for us but then, that is likely the only reason the spot hadn't been developed yet. It was worth it for sure :)

Comments: awwww man, really sorry to hear this.
I do have a few more obscurities to pick off but I'm getting close. I was about to start up Bonsai Pipeline the other day (as you requested) when I decided the top looked a bit wet but I will get on it soon...
Good luck with the arthritis man... I hope you can get back to it soon...

Comments: So... I sent this one this evening...
Used two separate toprope set ups to protect the traverse.

My full review: DON'T BOTHER!!!

Comments: I noticed the missing hanger as well, wondering what the story is...

lets just say I am intimidated by that route's difficulty for me but never deterred :) I always seem to get on Slice of Life when I'm not feeling 100% too, that might be part of it...
Steep pumpy climbs are always hardest for me but I seem to be able to rise to them if I put the effort in.

Comments: Sounds like they didn't take my advice of placing gear mindfully and not falling...
by "mindfully" I meant placing gear in the safest place on the flake ie closest to its contact with the rest of the cliff there by having less fulcrum to flex and eventually pull off the flake. oh, and DON'T FALL!

Comments: I tend to go up and tag the anchor then down climb and unclip a couple draws before lowering off... this reduces the drag a lot :)

Comments: Only called the pulse wall so that the organization will make sense in the next edition of the guide book... It is attached to orange crush but approached via Pulse wall but doesn't have enough routes to be called it's own crag. I think "The Balcony" will be the way it is spoken of.

Comments: I just can't imagine where I'd stop to clip another one. But I suppose I will have to add a bolt. That part used to be inconsequential before I pried all the good holds off :( so sad to see them go. Glad it still climbs well however :)

Comments: Haha Dave told me you guys had to work this one ;P
I was surprised to hear you had pulled hand holds off, I did it a few times and didn't find that I pulled on anything, More of a straight mantle... That being said I broke a few tiny holds with my feet... This route reminds me of Bolt Line and it brought back memories of when that stuff at The Meadows was newer and exfoliating more. It will end up being solid I'm sure :)

As for the grade, I am changing it to 5.7 since we couldn't real... more >>

Comments: Scary... Where did the block come off of... I took a pry bar to everything i could last time I was up there...
we have been running laps on the routes specifically looking for loose stuff with nothing but tiny chips breaking loose, even before i brought the crowbar up...
Anyway, Of course safety is my first concern so thanks for the heads up...
