Comments: For you it may be called Doubt, but for the rest of us it was Sooner or Later.

Comments: Just in case you haven't heard about this test I will fill you in. Geir Hundal took an old SMC oval that was worn half way through and pull tested it to 4000lbs, it elongated but did not fail.

This is not to imply you should push it too long but lets not be pulling them off the route too soon.

Quit top-roping on them people.

Comments: Nope, I don't even need to look at them I can just tell that they are one star from the post on MP.com. Once again, it looks like I may have inadvertently clicked on the star quality thingy on the page.

Comments: I guess when people are brought up on well buffed routes and plastic they just assume things will be solid. They may or may not be solid. When I started climbing just after the ice age, I learned that if it didn't look solid treat it like it could break or fall off. Thus Jimbo and I do everything we can to clean the stuff we think will kill or maim people cleaned off. It would suck to have someone get hurt by something we thought was solid. We have also found that many things that will not ... more >>

Comments: Only one hook on this anchor as I recall. Is the one hook now gone as well? 9/16ths and 1/2 inch combination wrench is all you need for 90 percent of loose nuts on bolts. Very inexpensive. Mussy hooks can be found online if you wanted to pick some up, maximuspress.com/shop/proddetail.php?prod=fmp014 the community would thank you. No, maybe not but I will in advance.

Comments: Hey MJ, I see where you could read that sentence you quote as the way off of the cliff. However the sentence before it says, "Approach the same way as the Ravens but follow the trail down and right at the Murray Wall to reach the small saddle where the Fortress meets the ridge. Dropping down the east side is the best way down.

How about this MJ? From the top of the cliff you will need to walk off. To get back to the uphill end of this crag work your way north along the ridge. Scrambling, dow... more >>

Comments: Those are some toothy grins there. Maybe Jim isn't grinning but Guinness is. Pretty sure Guinness will come up lame every time we need to hike out after this.

Comments: I don't think there is a description for getting off this cliff in the guidebook. There is definitely no suggestion you rap anything. There is a description on how to approach the routes. I guess when I did the guide getting off was too obvious to me since I was familiar with working my way back along the top toward where I left my pack.

Comments: Just call it 12. It might be 12- for those of less attractive stature but for the rest of us we will have to pull harder and reach a bit farther. It was fun being there for the hooking and sending.

Comments: This climb is another diamond in the rough. Okay, perhaps another pearl in an oyster. Not very pretty as it looks grungy but once opened it is a cool climb. Deceptively hard climbing for a route that on first impression give you the idea it will be 5.7. The first pitch has really good finger locks and pro. The second pitch starts about 20 feet left on the ledge and heads up to an improbable looking tiered crack/corner. It is really fun as well with good pro. You could shift the belay or len... more >>

Comments: I have done this three times now and I know that the second pitch can have a lot of drag. Using slings and a minimum of gear I am still unable to reduce the rope drag enough to make the pitch fun to climb so I think I will add a belay and make it a three pitch route. Will post up when I do.

Anchors added so it is now a 3 pitch route.
