Comments: The really thin glue-in bolt that you are asking about is titanium. Sam Lightner has been rebolting routes in Lander, and he has been using glue-ins. Some of the first routes he rebolted, he used titanium bolts left over from his days in Thailand.

Comments: The super-secret-ninja beta is to invert while still in the handcrack; kicking heel-toe cammies into the widepart; then you let go, no-handsies, whipping around to the jug; then you can switch the cammies to knee-jammies and wiggle up. That's it . . . DUH!!!!

Comments: So I went out, for the morning, to the normally crowded Friday the 13th alcove. But, today, instead of finding the normal host of people frying in the sun amongst the tape scraps and rope ends, I found a white (soft plastic), narrow-neck Nalgene, and one blue lace-up ClimbX shoe. I would be more than happy to return it to the rightful owner, since I have no use for it.

P.S. PLEASE pick up your trash and do a sweep of the area before you head on to another climb.

Comments: Even though it is doubtful that it belongs to a climber, I found an iPod Touch on the saddle between Glen Dome and Land of the Rising Moon, in Central Vedauwoo. Since karma always comes back around, I am interested in returning it to its proper owner. If it's yours or you believe you lost yours around there, please contact me with some general information regarding this iPod.

Comments: Really good route, but not casual to get to. The rack is really #0.75 through #3 Camalots with a focus on the #0.75 and #1.

Comments: As of today, there was not a fixed nut off of the flake at the start, but a #4 nut will pass in its place.

Comments: This is a good wall that gets plenty of afternoon shade, and is inhabited by grumpy old men, constantly reminding you of how tough they are by downgrading all the climbing, while tr'ing laps on Neat.

Comments: WARNING: the rock in the pod about halfway up moves as well. It actually moves with ease, whether from a loaded cam or just a foot jam will cause it to shift from one side to the other, causing cams to tip out and fingers to get stuck.

Comments: You mock jammer for naming the problem and sharing it with anyone that might be interested, yet didn't you do the same thing, Strappo, by calling it "Soggy Bottom?" You can hardly take offense to problems being redone and renamed when you chose not to share that information because it was below you, and yet you make a stink. I'm sure the pebbles in your driveway are lovely, but if you choose to take them for granted, so what if someone cares enough to name them. You hardly broached the conver... more >>

Comments: THIS IS ONE GREAT CLIMB! The gear is great on it and the jams are good. It is splitter and flaring, it is classic Vedauwoo climbing. It is all about gunning for the rests and feeling the exposure!

Comments: Watch out for choss before and at the roof. There is some soft rock on the left side, and choss waiting to peel off on the right side of the roof, exactly where and what you want to grab. Once pass the roof, it is pretty solid now, but there is a block that is currently marked with an X, so tread carefully.

Comments: The name or alias you be referring to is "Worthwhile For a Squeeze Job." The climb is rad, I would recommend this to anyone interested. It is a striking climb that flows nicely with the crux at the top.

Comments: There are some good edges and crystals out left, through the whole crack, that make for good rests. There is especially a no hands rest before the offwidth finish. Also, a lot of people do face climb the slab at the end, avoiding the offwidth section.

Saying all that, I thought it was 5.9 even. You definitely was tight hands to hands for gear, and a big piece is nice for the end. Due to the flare, a few #1 Camalots are nice with 1 or 2 #2 Camalots, and a #5 Camalot for the... more >>
