Comments: Do you pull the roof? Where? Go around it to the left? A couple of us were playing on this and think it is considerably harder than 5.8 if you are pulling the roof.

Comments: Looks like a miniature version of Reppy's Crack. You're not telling where it is? I'll tell you where to find some fun sport climbing in CT that is not on MP. You show me yours and I'll show you mine. ;-)

Comments: Jeff,

Three pitons? The ringed piton under and to the right of the crux overhang and the lost arrow piton above the overhang, kind of hidden. Where is the third?

The pitons are marked in the route photo here: www.climbri.org/ross.htm

Comments: Yup...and an attentive belayer standing close to the cliff with no slack in the rope. If you were to blow it at the second horizontal before placing gear you would deck. But as you said, it shouldn't be a problem for a solid 5.9 leader.

There are a number of good leads at Ross that seldom get led. Maybe Connecticut top-rope mentality or maybe because Nichols chopped the few supplemental bolts needed to make a run-out lead a safe one.

Comments: Beautiful shot but the chalk does detract from it. I guess it is the "White" Mountains.

Comments: Mike,

He wins a battle here and there but he is losing the war. Ten years ago there were no bolted climbs in CT. Now they approaching 100 and more are popping up every week. Most of the people who climb with him clip bolts as well and just don't tell him. His days of dictating climbing ethics in CT is dwindling with his age.

Comments: Next time you see Ken Nichols you can thank him for chopping it. He climbs at Ross frequently. Runs laps on The Crack of Despair.

Comments: It is not marked on the photos. It is way left (north) of Shape Shifter. Not on main wall. It is the roof to the left of Trad Crack and Bolt and Jolt. Newly bolted.

Comments: What do you figure the rating is on the new bolted route over the roof to the left of Trad Crack? I did it many years ago on top-rope but not recently. There was a pretty good chunk of rock pulled off right on the edge of the roof about ten years ago.

Comments: Isn't all bouldering contrived Jeff? ;-) Boulder #2 is much bigger and better than #1. Neither is exactly a destination worth traveling for.

Comments: If any route needs a separate rappel route from the climbing route this is the route. It would speed things up considerably and eliminate cluster fuchs at the belays with multiple parties going up and going down. Turn this into a two-lane highway and it will be more enjoyable for everyone.

Comments: Ben,

I can't think of anyplace where you would need more than a couple of 20 ft lengths of webbing or >50 ft length of static rope except maybe for the easy slab (Super Slab). There are trees close to the top of the cliff just about everywhere. Some sport routes have bolted anchors that are down aways and out of reach from the top without ropeing up. Have fun.

Comments: "Location

Chimney/cave left of "Limbomainac", "Resume Builder", and "Unemployment Line"."

Facing the wall, isn't this to the right of Limbomainac? Or maybe I didn't climb Limbomanianc and something else instead. Anyway Guanica is a fun route.
