Comments: Cool you got on this thing...
about UNDERTOE... or a variation via ferrata, well, it needs attention to enable the work on the many virgin, hard, vertical lines which girdle this perfect piece of stone.

Comments: Obviously, your original nomenclature must be reinstated, running the whole gamut of this lovely gorge once again.

Comments: Finally! So the FFA of Blackbeard's Tears! Wow.
Brilliant Work, Ethan!

Blackbeard’s Tears, ahh... its fissure, its proximity to some white-noise cacophony of wind, and wave-shore action...

This is that rare kind of cliff that has the ability to intrinsically "gift us" an awesome flow experience...

Perhaps you know this; it's the sharing of the rope, and the willing desire to seek out the unc... more >>

Comments: Perhaps, Mr. Griffin, perhaps.

We all interpret things according to our own paradigm.

Not yellow dots but white patches. That is, I have found these 1/8-1/4" sections to be powder-coated with a fine layer of particulate matter, so beware.

Comments: Of what I did here, so long ago: I could have mapped, named, rated, spewed, all about the boulders & route details.
But after the amazing meeting I had on the beach with a resident elk, I concurred with him that his neighborhood, this place, well, it needs to be free from the hordes who tend to visit beautiful places, and end up loving them too much.
Ossagon really deserves to keep its obscurity, and its original and uncertain character intact.
This means not naming/rating an FA of an overhangin... more >>

Could be interesting...

Way to go, putting up routes, traverses and otherwise, on this nice-looking feature!

Comments: Yeah, when these lines were first touched, FA: Tim, Rich, Petch, MH were psyched not to do any hooking. Rich and I initially set the anchor to do this route up--that is we 1st TR'd these; thankfully, I found an easier way up to the anchor nook over the top to the right where these route start.

After Rich belayed me, and I pounded some pins, thin pro (-almost dicy-) But one bomber piece was good though, (can't remember) Two or three tied ... more >>

Comments: Indeed, and I'm pretty sure Tim soloed everything on this outcrop, including Dream Theme, Nightmare, etc. ... he'd go up the harder ones and then down climb the easier ones...nevertheless, to name a route after one's sweetie is admirable!
