Comments: I agree with Paul what's up with "guides rock"??
That's seriously bullshit!! A lot of guides use a 10"x16" board with anchors screwed in, hung on tree branch to teach that stuff! Those "teaching anchors" should be removed ASAP.
Unacceptable!

Comments: Jeez! This is retarded. First off I think the basic ethic of twenty+ years at the lake need to be accounted for and appreciated. You wait until the water is down and do it from the GROUND to the top. Not half way up or in some cases 2/3rds of the way up. People who climb out of a boat and rush to the web to post FA's need to "sac up" and climb the whole route. These are just L.A.M.E. ( Look At ME attempts to spew about themselves. Let's reverse this asinine logic here and s... more >>

Comments: Nice photo Jay. The problem you call F. "Special ED Left" is what I called Special ED. I never did the right variation letter G because of the death stump factor at the heinous mantle its hard and mental. I used to call it the "mental mantle" but like I said I never did it. The stump is a factor on "F. Special ED Orginal" but a bit safer than "mental mantle" I felt. It always looked like that stump seemed rotten enough to remove or shove over but i couldn't move it.
Thanks

Comments: The Hermit and Chameleon boulders are in what we always called the "boulder field", the areas i found known as the "Zion area boulders" are further downstream, followed by the Harvest boulders and then the area I found and named Stone Hinge. There is also the Flow boulder where i put up a bunch of stuff which below the the Zion boulders near the river

Comments: i put up 2 problems to the left of French Toes in 1999/2000. one was a one move dyno to the top above the ramp lip and the other was the same start but moved right to a cool sharp sidepull hold and topped out.
Left one was called Pocket Rocket and the right one was called The Trundle because I pulled off a big block topping out. it's probably still on the ground nearby.

Comments: there is a small boulder with 2 low balls up and to the right of the brain boulder. both started to the right of a small tree that was against the boulder. left problem was Dig Deep V6ish by Quillen and involved a hard left side pull move. the right problem was done by Behrens and was a little easier but I don't have its name recorded.

Comments: The stand start was a right facing blocky hold slightly above head height. photo you guys have is the way it was back in the late 90s
The SDS was maybe V5/6 started on crimps, high left foot, you rock up to shallow pocket with left hand pop to the broken hold in question with right hand, which where the stand start begins.

Comments: Andy Quillen and I did this in 1999 same time as The Brain. we called it O.D.B. Crack or Old Dirty Bastard because it took longer to clean it out than it did to climb it.

Comments: Jonathan Kingston FA'd the stand up version in 1997, I added a sit start in 1999 and called it Monkey's Paw. That obvious hold that looks recently broken, broke in like 1997.
