Comments: Yes, I've seen a number of examples of "paraphrasing" of passages in my guide. And yes, it is a little annoying to see one's work doctored up and presented as original. But as long as it's not directly copied,it's just lazing writing, not plagiarism.

Better to just quote the source!

Thanks for noticing Aerili!

Comments: Thanks for the clarification Rick. I think I got those names from Brad's notes several years ago.

Comments: Yes, "Taco Time 5.8" is the furthest left route on the Taco formation. "Taco Supreme 10b" is second from the left, and starts with friction moves and small sidepull/underclings.

The route on the leaning "boulder"has a steep start 5.8/9 and a 5.7ish slab move up high to a chain anchor.

Comments: There is a newish route just left of the upper "tunnel", not to be confused with "Taco Time". "Taco Time" is the furthest left route on the formation, and "Taco Supreme" 10b, is the 2nd to the right. "TS" takes optional small cams (I used 2).

Comments: Hi Mike, I hope you stumble upon this...

The original info I got from Brad had "Saint" at 12c and "Cold Feet" at 11c. You mention "Cold Feet" above as 12c...

I guess I'd better get on it to find out!

Comments: Things are a little squeezed in here. I think "Bone Crack" is the wideish corner on the left, and "Drew's Dihedral" is the direct line that ends at the same anchor. Hope that helps.

Comments: This super-obvious, super-popular route was surely climbed decades before Jay G. named it "Adolescent Homo". It never has been "Adolescent Homosexual" (except here on MP). I added the "sapien" part in the guidebook to quiet the critics while retaining some of the punky quality. Personally, I'd love to hear the original name - if they bothered to give it one.

Comments: I backed off this cool little crack back in the diem (when we were still speaking Latin). Good job pushing thru lads! Yes to a finish up the head-wall!


Location: ID : City of Rocks : Breadloaves : Upper Breadloaves - West : Bad Crack (5.10a)
By: dave bingham When: Jan 20, 2015

Comments: "Bad Crack" isn't really so bad - if you're into wide cracks. The 5.10 rating is outdated info. I led it last year and thought 5.8 or 9, and I suck at wide cracks. It's also pretty hard to avoid clipping at least one bolt on "Muffin Top", so it feels a bit contrived. Two-and-a-half stars? Not.

Comments: There used to be a fixed pin near the start of this fun route. I found the gear alternatives less-than-comforting. I'd love to see a bolt or two added at the bottom!

Comments: We did a fun top-rope directly below the anchors of the first pitch. "Tail Feather" 10a** Avoid the crack and bush up top via slab moves to the right.

Comments: I'm surprised the diagram shows draws being clipped in to the same chain link as the threaded rope. That's fine if there are rings, but running the rope and a draw thru the same chain link is like an elephant humping a chipmunk.

While the overall sequence is fine, it's a bit slow, and certainly not the only safe option when threading.

Comments: Interesting point about being easier than "Red Rib". For sure. Thanks to Kevin Pogue for all those bolts. Clipping about half of them make it feel more "old school", if you're in to that sort of thing.

Comments: Awesome route! It's super-blank looking, but has just enough classic City edges to make it go without any stopper sections.
