Comments: I did the sit-start direct finish yesterday afternoon. I think that finish deserves a solid v3 (maaaaybe v3+) rating, however I could see how in warm weather it could jump to v4.

I gave it 4 stars because I think it's the best start on the whole boulder.

Comments: Has anyone been up to Barn Bluff in the last week? I'm hoping to climb this weekend and am wondering if the rock is dry enough. Thanks!

Comments: A little beta never hurt anyone. Check out the page for The Naked Edge... I guess by some people's standards, the author of that isn't in to "adventure climbing."

Pete, if I knew I'd tell you. Or better yet, I'd show you.

Comments: Anyone up for an island expedition in the next couple of weeks? After hearing what ya'll had to say, I'm ready to see what it has to offer. Maybe we can get some of that gov't bailout $$$ and build a bridge so it can be sent in the summer too

Comments: I've been training quite a bit for my Thanksgiving send-fest in Mankato... I hear this project is pretty weather-dependent. Hopefully the conditions are prime and someone can send it!

Comments: Just a thought: I'd give this problem a 3 star if it were meant as the start to link up to beehive traverse...

Comments: Tom,

Just started climbing at Taylors Falls last summer, so crazy stuff to report on yet. If you're ever back in the neighborhood and want to scout out That Dam Rock send me a message or post - you bring the beta and I'll supply the beer!
