Comments: man, i am glad to hear somebody else say that. i did this one a couple weeks ago. i haven't been climbing much lately, and not many cracks, but this felt challenging in a lot of ways. the gear looks really straight forward, but when you actually go to place it, it is very easy to place gear that isn't great. the corner also leans a bit to the "bald" side, which adds to the stress when you are trying to tinker in some gear.... more >>

Comments: are you talking about the one in almost black rock, maybe 100' right of spiderpig? that thing looks pretty cool, and hard.

Comments: another route that i thought was better than it looked. bolting seemed good, other than a few spinning hangers.

Comments: i thought this was a nice little route. better climbing and better rock than it appears from the ground. the rock features are pretty cool and create nicely technical climbing for the grade.

Comments: ahhh, only in tieton can you be climbing in a puffy, dodging falling choss, getting pummeled by icey wind, picking ticks off of you, and listening to a rattlesnake buzz at you from under your pile of gear... good times!

Comments: judging by the small amount of rope left when rapping with a 70, i would estimate that this route is closer to 110 feet or so. the route is very interesting as you are continually climbing a series of small pillars, some of which vibrate substantially when you pound them. it seemed like the kind of route where a gorilla tugging beginner could get an unfortunate surprise.

to find the route, when you get to the top of the approach trai head up and slightly right through some minor ledges that n... more >>

Comments: those monster foot muscles are well coordinated with those monster calf muscles. i can't imagine climbing most of the routes at index barefooted. they always seem sooo foot intensive.

Comments: I thought this was a Robert Warren route called Left Dihedral that went to the top and walked off to the left(?).

Comments: I don't see why you are upset with me about it. I think my responses have been pretty straightforward, even-handed, and factual.

Comments: Umm, I have actually been friends with Rob for almost 25 years and have a lot of respect for him. Thus, when I get a bunch of emails from fired up folks, it is a bit awkward....

I don't really think that asking somebody to remove the bolts from a sensitive area to be a big battlecry or anything. I also don't really think that asking folks to remove bolts they have added to previously existing lines to be that un-reasonable.

As you have noted, the main pa... more >>

Comments: I don't think it is unreasonable to do a small amount of investigating before posting routes as FAs, particularly at areas with a fairly long climbing history. I think the main thing that people are getting agitated about is posting some of the other routes that are on private property.

I don't think it is unrealistic to expect that a sponsored climber with a significant presence do a small amount of homework before claiming FAs, posting routes that are ... more >>

Comments: Recently I have received some emails concerning some "new" routes that went up in Escalante Canyon a week or two ago. These aren't new routes. This is what is known as the Mosquito's nest area, which was documented in the original Desert Rock ('88). Any serious desert climber should have been able to figure this out, but.... All of these routes have been climbed numerous times, with the descent being a rap ... more >>

Comments: Yeah, I am pretty sure I have climbed this before. Is there a crack on the left side of that flake/block that goes up to an anchor? I can't really remember it all that well though.

If it remotely looks like a crack that is better than 1 star, I pretty much guarantee it has been climbed, particularly in that general area of the canyon.

Comments: i am trying to figure out what you are more full of, bullshit or your self. you dont consider a 3 to 1 client to guide ratio on AA to be a horde?? i have seen 9 people, 2 of whom were guides for the same company, at one belay and you call me misinformed? you dont like my opnion? tough shit, you're going to hear it.

Comments: i take it that 'uninformed' is the empowered/organicprocess/wellness buzzword of the year. i love how you throw your own opinions out there, then 'respectfully' request that others keep their opinions to themselves.

i find it hilarious that you find guidebooks\photos/etc guilty for bringing hordes to the creek, but somehow the splitter camps, guiding hordes up AA, and other climbing festival crap is unrelated. hmm, ... more >>
