Rock Climbing Photo: Casual Route Pitch 3  Photo by Mark Cushman
A Trip Report.

Welcome to Jon's Trip Report. I got the biner from fellow MP user Daryl Allan. I start off this report with a ten minute trip down the road to Eldorado Canyon for a quick lap on the Bastille.

It seems that this summer I have been on The Bastille many times, making at least four trips up the Bastille Crack, each time with some one who had never been on the wall before. I have also had the pleasure of getting on a few routes on the west face such as Breakfast in Bed, Sunset Boulevard and Neon Lights.

A few days (week) later fellow MP user show here:

decided to head up to the Peanuts Wall to do a few climbs. We started off with Your Basic Lieback, which is a very enjoyable climb with a really crappy loose rock approach. At the top we gave the biner some action as show here:

This belay was used to finish up the climb on Dihedral, which is very fun and offers two cool finishes.

A few days (week) later another fellow MP user and I made a Wednesday ascent of the Casual Route on the Diamond. Shown here for those familiar with the climb is the final traverse pitch out to the D7 raps.

At some point in between these days of climbing the Biner spent some after work sessions in Boulder Canyon, both sport climbing and doing some AID climbing, as it is my new activity and I am getting really into it.

Finally I'd like to wrap this TR up with a non timed (for those of you trying to best each others times) scramble of Freeway on the second flat iron, with my lovely girlfriend and fellow MP user.

Here is a shot of her using the biner as 'pro'.

Let me say thanks to all my climbing partners for getting out with me and I look forward to climbing with you all as much as possible.

The biner seems to have vanished again. I guess Coda had it last. Where's the biner Coda? Superclimber

Alright Cota! Cough up some pictures, or send it on, if youve still got it.

Anyone seen it?

Maybe a route on the SuperWall in your back yard! :D

Earlier in the thread Cota DID say he wanted to take it to Zion and that he tends to drop stuff off walls...

I hope it isn't laying in the scree at the base of Moonlight Buttress or something.

Awesome story though. Can't help but wonder what happened to Larry's original 'biner.
