Comments: Scratching route names onto the route base is not cool. While it may seem to be a nuance, since there are several "plaques" (pieces of flat rock with the route name and grade scratched or pecked onto it) at the base of climbs, scratching the actual rock cliff is permanent damage, ugly, and downright offensive. Yeah, the bolts and bolt holes are permanent damage too but somehow that is different than what could be considered graffiti. I was at the CCC recently and sa... more >>

Comments: Warmed up on this yesterday (before getting on Wishbone next to it) and found the bolting a bit off for a 5.9. I'll go back and move some of the bolts to make the protection less ponderous (not sure when but I'll update the route info at that time). It's fine if you're warming up on it but for a 5.9 climber the protection would be unnecessarily thought provoking.

Comments: Climbed Wishbone yesterday for the first time in...more than a decade and was pleasantly surprised at how interesting and fun it was. Perhaps because it seemed much easier than it looked (a bit light for the 11a grade but I wouldn't change it). Really fun, worth the trek.

Comments: A fairly crucial hold broke off a few years ago making the start sequence more difficult, which may make the 11d rating seem/be a letter grade low. It's still good fun, just a bit harder on the ego...


Location: New Mexico : Santa Fe Area : Diablo Canyon : Early Wall : Left End : Rope Burn in Hell (5.12b/c)

Comments: I got on this route this year for the first time since we established it ~10 years ago and found it safer, more fun, and harder than I'd remembered. It appears that it has seen very few ascents, perhaps because of the name or because of its relative isolation for the grade. Regardless, while I still feel it only deserves 2*s it is definitely worth doing. I took several falls at the crux, a 4 move bolder problem, which resulted in bruises only to my ego.
