Comments: excellent physical climbing, way heavy on cups (#3 camalots). it is helpful to have about 1 or 2 each of .5 to #1, as well as a handful of #2's to help save on 3's. i would have liked to have a few 3.5 camalots or 4 friends as well, as the 3's get pretty tipped. a 3.5 would have been really handy at the roof (between a pair of not great blocks). bring some runners/draws as well.

there are still 3 block/flake sections that should be treated with respect. i would give this a pg13 ... more >>

Comments: old 3.5 camalots (or #4 friends) are pretty money on the first pitch. the #3 camalots get a wee bit tipped out. great route. avoid the death block in the chimney, it is pretty loose.

Comments: superb route, well done! your comment about spicy but well protected seemed pretty accurate. i haven't really climbed anything like that, and the super wide chimney/stemming was really cool. thanks for putting it up.

Comments: hmmm, that doesn't really make much sense. if you are going to go through the effort of dragging a 5 up there for a marginal piece, why not just drag a 6 instead for a good piece. it's not THAT big of a weight difference....

Comments: generally i try to avoid naming routes, but if it had bandito hangers i don't have too much of an issue with it. would anybody out there be upset if i renamed this one "bandito route" ?

i would add the route other "lift kit" route, but i can't remember the gear at the start that protects the mantle sort of move. maybe purple tcu or something?

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 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 >>
