Comments: This route is actually 5.11+. If the climber wandered to the neighboring 5.10-, Ranch Hands, the cumulative grade would be something in the area of 5.10. However, that would of course require climbing off route. Being that the bolts for Ranch Hands are more than my wing span apart from the bolts on Barn Door (I'm 5'10" with an ape index of 0), both routes climb different features, and they do not share any holds, this route is in no way a squeeze job.

The given grade should be adjusted accordin... more >>

Comments: Geir,
Like I said, you can pretend the mess you made will disappear. People will continue to discuss your deplorable actions. Cheap insults and threats further cripple your already waning credibility. Be part of the solution, or don't. It's your choice.

Comments: Paul,
I'm not sure you understand the context of my comment. Perhaps I should have been more clear, for your sake. "Natural," was referring to the climbing, not the protection. I can explain in further simplicity, if necessary.

Comments: Aleix, unlike you, I have directly and personally contacted the parties involved. I have spoken with Scott extensively about these issues. I have repeatedly privately emailed Geir, which he ignored and continues to do so.

You on the other hand, have only been in contact with Geir and Jimbo about these issues. I know Scott has repeatedly attempted to contact you, by telephone and email, though you have apparently ignored him.

Everything I have quoted is backed up. So, you are absolutely wrong ... more >>

Comments: Jimbo, here are some words of yours from your New Years letter to Anders and Mike Diesen. Any thoughts on them now?

"...The point is most people are less than qualified to make the claims they do and most don't realize it. No fault of there own perhaps but true non the less.
I should, however, realize they are just trying to help in any given situation. Just because they haven't been "doing it" for 31 years doesn't give me the right to chastise them endlessly. There motives, most of the ti... more >>

Comments: Jimbo,

The fact that Scott didn't respond to the group emails is independent of your and Geir's failure to contact him directly.

Considering you have a propensity to sling insults just for the sake of your own enjoyment because, according to you, it's the only way you stay interested, I understand why Scott wouldn't want to jump into water infested with sharks who are out for blood.

Rickd's part of the email exchange, which I already posted on the other thread, is a prime example:

Comments: Ryan,

If you found nothing relevant about the Mark Twain quote, then that is fine. It was intended to be food for thought.

To answer your questions, which I asked Scott tonight, yes, the bolt ladder was put there so the section could be aided. In an egotistical fit during the same season, Scott went back and chiseled the holds so the section could be freed. It was the former scenario of which you mentioned, so do you think that the bolts should not have been removed? I would not disagree with ... more >>

Comments: Ryan, No one is saying the chiseled holds shouldn't have been filled in.

Before the holds were chiseled, that section was an A0 bolt ladder, which is commonly accepted in various places (for example, Yosemite).

The offending part of the route was the chiseled holds. That was the only section done in bad style, to put it lightly.

Anyone willing to go ask Scott Ayers some questions and get his perspective knows that he is deeply regretful and would not chisel ever again. Even Geir admits this.... more >>

Comments: I just found all of the recent comments. I think it is appropriate to cross-post this quote I came across from a Mark Twain novel.

Any thoughts?

"Well, there were sixty-eight people there, and sixty-two of them had no more desire to throw a stone than you had."

"Satan!"

"Oh, it's true. I know your race. It is made up of sheep. It is governed by minorities, seldom or never by majorities. It suppresses its feelings and its beliefs and follows the handful that makes the most noise. Sometimes... more >>

Comments: The final pitch still has 3 or 4 large loose blocks on it. They are dangerous and SHOULD NOT BE KNOCKED OFF because they will take anything out in their path (climbers, dogs, vegetation, bolts, etc...) A better alternative is to do a short 4th class traverse to the final pitch of the Peacemaker.

Comments: I third the chihuahua comment. I was there today and that rock seemed solid. (I was rapping and my partner was at the anchors). Maybe I am just a weakling.
