Angie on last moves.


Slabby face.


Look for the short 5.7. Climb just to the right. When you get to the cliff by going up the access trail, go right approx 40 feet.

Crux 2nd bolt from anchor. Since breakage the move is as hard as anything on Crooked Bowtie.

Yes, crux hold broke. Move might now be 10c/d.

I'm assuming I was on this route, maybe just feeling good because it was such high quality rock, flashback to El Cap/Middle Cathedral quality? Funnest route there to date, but I thought it was easier than everyone is saying. Seemed like when you thought it was going to get harder there were plenty of good holds available. 4 star route for me any way! I saw the anchor to the right, above that overhang, is that going to be a route soon Brad/John? And fixed rope left of Crooked Bowtie?

John and I had a bit of a grade disagreement on Pushing Tin. I thought 10b, he was thinking 10c. Since you're giving it a 10a with the broken hold you must have found something we didn't. I'll go back and check it out.

Don't know about the fixed rope.

We have anchors up there for development but my priority is several more climbs at the Emeralds. If you see a line you like go ahead and jump on it. Would be great having you develop at Bowman.

I always feel like 5 feet(+) left or right of the bolt line is fair game. I usually need all the help I can find on routes. I noticed your comments for Slipstream, sounds like a "rules" problem usually found at the gym. If I can reach a good hold while still following the bolt line, or step over to a good rest stance, that's where I will be.Keep up the good work developing those routes.

Bill and Brad
Fixed rope to the left of Crooked Bow tie is mine.
I'm sloooowly hand drilling another route. Just recently got a few more bolts on this route installed.

Did it again. 4 star route, beautiful rock, still 10a, despite the heat.Looked like you could have pushed it up another 15/20 feet for full value?

Bill Price: Go ahead and push the route up another 15 or 20 feet if you think it will improve the route.
