Comments: Nobody is scrubbing their ticks, it's the humidity. There's quite a few climbs that are always chalked up but for the most part everything disappears quickly.

Comments: I just noticed your rhyme, excellent creativity, unfortunately it does not improve the quality of the ascent.

Comments: Good to hear but I still think the presence of the TR anchor allowed you a possible escape from full commitment and therefore diminishes this ascent to a mere pink point.

Comments: You didn't clip that TR anchor before the top out, did you?!!?

Comments: Hmmm...that's a good thought. I also solo with a harness and occasionally use two personals to build a moveable anchor through some sketchy parts. Does this ruin the act of soloing?!?! I'm saving this for a forum post but if you want to take the reigns please do so :)

Comments: I wouldn't worry about being able to climb the route but I would worry for the rest of eternity that there's loose rock on the upper pitches of this wall and some down below too. Don't pull too hard and for god sakes never fall.

Comments: However, if you aren't local there's no way you climbed this problem. Only locals know how to find "The Reserve". Any FIBS that stumbled on to it have been taken care of, in a bad way.

Comments: Alex. I'm serious. According to local tradition you sent a new route. For example see here: mountainproject.com/v/10774176...

Comments: Congratulations Alex! Any slight variation of a problem at DL is considered a new problem and an FA! Best part is, you get to name it, may I suggest "Chocolate Starfish"?

Comments: I love how boulderers will talk a ton of shit about a problem and the FA and then try to make amends by saying "but sick send bro!".

Comments: So what I'm seeing here is that the DL climbing Illuminati has two weeks to climb and determine if this so called route is worthy of being posted on MP. We eagerly anticipate your decision!

BTW, it is also DL tradition that in order to pass judgement on a route you MUST send!

Comments: James! You stole the, that climb, "bad beta" idea from me! Slowly but surely we are coming closer together...and you quoted me on the Enormocast. My ego beems when I hear you talk. Bravo!

In a related note the bad beta=new climb idea has solidly been established for bouldering at DL so why not on routes too?

Comments: Stick clip? Lame. Than you are just top roping, not that there's anything wrong with that. Might as well pull all the bolts and TR from the top.

Comments: Welcome to Idy slab Ivan. That finish is 5.7 and not considered R because the moves are so much easier than the rest of the route. You will get used to that :)
