Comments: I'm pretty sure we did the FA and the name was the "traverse" so it fits. We did a lot of the problems given goofy names by JG. This one is fine. At the time, as you can imagine, there were trees and shrubs at the base, now long gone.

Comments: The line begins near the dog; straight up. Like a drop of water.

It will be a nicer climb once it rains...

Comments: Eric you have a point. This is soft rock and the pin wouldn't be very reliable after a season or two.

Still, I would rather have it bolt and pin free. It would be for me since I can't conceive of hanging and placing gear at the crux. I'll leave it as is and wait for a 12+ thin crack afficionado!

Comments: Still thinking about a piton mid way up the crack. It would provide solid pro through the struggle and keep the pro in line above.

Comments: Brigette and I started on Steel Crazy to join the low angle crack of Rupley's. We broke the rest into three pitches but we wandered about some. It was a great finish. I tried not to pass any chickenheads on the final headwall. Great climbing.

Comments: Paul, I think your route may be up and right of the start of this one. I'll check it out next time I go.

Thanks for the props Josh. Josh Cross and Chuck Claude got the first free ascent; great going amigo!

I spent about three seasons on stealth clean mode on the rock. It had a ton of loose rock at the start; still some left. Be cautious. The lichen above is not as bad as it was, with more use it will move along.

I wanted to keep the route true to the nature of the area an... more >>

Comments: I thought the moves above the bolt would be better protected if the bolt was installed above the roof by 6" that way you won't be pulled into the arete if you fell there. The FA thinks otherwise...be careful and do not fall. I give it a 5.10c R for that.

Comments: Definitely easier for me since I like crack. Still, the crack up high on the route is harder to jam cause it gets wider and has thin lips; pull on the edge and you're fine.
