Location: GA : Boat Rock

Comments: A quick correction to the directions: From where Bakers Ferry Rd. hits Boat Rock Rd. (you turn left there onto Boat Rock Rd.), it isn't nearly 1.5 miles to the turnout -- more like 0.3 miles -- it comes up quick. You'll see a sign that says "Short Sight Distance" and it's only a couple hundred feet past that.

Comments: Wonderful movement. I find this route a little easier than either Fire and Brimstone or Breakfast Burrito, but I also watched a couple of people climb it before my turn.

Comments: Wonderful newer route. I recommend it highly -- one of my favorites from my recent trip to RRG.

Comments: Yes. Maybe the photo was backwards.

Comments: Yes, this is Ostracizer. How do we get it corrected? And I agree that it is now harder than V2 -- pulling the lip is now really hard.

Comments: This climb has a wonderful knee bar in it that makes the grade feel more like V2 to me. I did this climb without that much trouble and I've never even sent a V3, much less V4.

Comments: Just a minor sidelight to this thread, but have to throw in that I love Sir Edmund Drillary and don't get why people are so negative about that climb. (Referring to what iBolt wrote up above.) Maybe it's improving with time, getting cleaner and less sharp. But the main thing I guess is that taste is just super variable. Looking forward to working Apocalypse.

Comments: I'm not sure what you mean about "skirting the roof". After clipping the bolt in the roof, you traverse under the roof for just a few moves until the little notch, and that's where you pull it. If you move too far right before pulling the roof, you'll find that once you're up and over it the next bolt is too far to your left (this happened to a friend of mine). This is a very cool climb by the way, underrated.

Comments: Don't be afraid to try this route. The swing out is unusual but feels fine once you try it if you get the right holds before lifting your feet off the ledge. Then it's only about three hard moves up from there to a good hold, foot placements, and a rest, and then easier traveling follows.


Location: NH : *Rumney : Jimmy Cliff : Junco (5.8+)

Comments: I just heard that a big section at the bottom of The Junco (bottom two bolts) just fell off. Does anyone know if this is true? And if so, did it affect Lonesome Dove or Hammond Organ? (This may be a rumor from people who were confusing Junco with Jolt -- although they were saying the bottom of the route fell off, not the top. I still haven't heard whether this really happened or not.) UPDATE: Nothing happened at Junco. Whoever said that was obviously confusing it with Jolt, although even so the... more >>
