Comments: ummm, 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 p... more >>

Comments: I don't think it is unreasonable to do a small amount of investigating before posting routes as FA's, 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 FA&@POUN... 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 >>

Comments: hmm, i don't have the knack for purple prose, but bitching about a tiny number of people climbing these towers after the bullshit aac festival is just, well, 'uninformed'....

Comments: Good, challenging route. I think Kerry Gunter may have been one of the FA folks.

Comments: Good, fun route although the rock quality deteriorates on the last pitch. Descent can be hairy if there is a bunch of ice and snow on it.

Comments: your pitch breakdown has me a bit confused. do you have one of the usual pitches split into P2/P3, or maybe P3/P4? i just remember p1 being a fingercrack up to the belay spot under the big roof. p2 being the big roof and a bolted slab to a small ledge. p3 being a slab with some heads up to a nice stance below an 8 to 10a crack? in a nutshell, 3 hard pitches instead of 4 (?)

Comments: I remember thinking this would be a lot better as a sport route than a gear route. Good upgrade in my opinion.

Comments: i have always parked just before the small pond (mud hole would be more accurate) that is on the right side when you are driving in. there is a small shale like hill that leads to a ridge, which goes pretty much straight up to the nice splitter hand crack. really cool wall.

Comments: i moved the old beta photo to 'unknown 10 left of variety pack'. the current photo shown above is linkage (per karl kelley, who put it up). hopefully that helps organize this area a bit.

Comments: i did mystical, maybe a month or so ago and it is all bolts now. good route with some funky planar liebacking...

i also TR'd mars, but IIRC the upper part was insanely dirty, wet, and mossy.
