Comments: There's only one problem on the boulder, and it has a low-percentage, stopper crux for the grade (V6) and a sketchy highball top-out, so I doubt it will see much traffic.

Comments: I settled in at 12c, because that's what it feels like once you dial in the moves, although I have to point out that several very strong (5.14) climbers have taken several days to redpoint it.

If it's actually 12c, it's all of that.

Comments: That's a tough one, Joe. My initial thought about the route was that the top half was wasted mileage, although I came to see it as a fun cool-down after the business. Cleaning the pitch is pretty simple, and I don't think moving the anchors over will make cleaning the overhanging section much easier.

The route is a well established classic, which has been done too many times now to change it, IMO.

Comments: Watch out for the thick poison ivy and kicking rocks down the steep, loose approach onto the street.

Comments: This warm-up is the best route at the crag. Reminded me a little of Calypso in Eldo.

Comments: I've climbed and established a fair amount of routes with Bob. He is prolific and puts up fun routes, although he is not big on doing a lot of cleaning. I've done several of his routes and found easier sequences which were only revealed after either brushing the pitches up or feeling around in the lichen for easier sequences.

I'm not a fan of rating routes on contrived sequences when easier ones are within reach, not that I think that&... more >>

Comments: Those monos are all over the place. Mark has earned more respect than to be accused of manufacturing holds by people who probably don't even know him. I've known him for decades, and if he says he did not drill that pocket, I have no doubt in that he didn't. Accusing someone like Mark, without sufficient evidence and whose route-development résumé speaks for itself, is bad form.

If this bolted route isn't your style, there's always RP or Not to Be, in Eldo. It's barely 12a, and you should ha... more >>

Comments: Bob is correct in that retrobolting established, serious routes is an affront to many who have successfully accepted the challenge. I am one of those folks. Retrobolting routes like Perilous Journey and Clear The Deck would be offensive to me.

That said, I have a question and a comment about the bolts on Aerospace. Was the route TR-rehearsed and then bolted and led? If so, then anyone leading the route onsight has done it in purer style than the first ascensionist, negating the relevancy of di... more >>
