Comments: That's what was meant Jon, although there is a sneaky placement for a .75" cam that can offer better protection for the roof. :)

Comments: To designate something as classic I usually consider if the climb is historically significant, striking in appearance, has good rock, and is fun to climb. The climb's length is not super important to me.

Comments: Hey Ryan, I think what Fred suggested was meant as an alternative to chiseling if there is a section of blank rock on a new climb. I'll ask him the next time I talk to to him if he doesn't chime in here.

Comments: If there is a killer linkup that people want to name on MP, that is fine by me. Eric can sort it out and put things into the guide however he sees fit. In my view it makes most sense to make note of linkups in the description/comments for the original routes.

Comments: Modern bolts are around 5000+ pounds for shear, depending on the bolt. The new School of Rock on MP has a description for how to pull drop-ins so the same hole can be reused. There are a lot of drop-ins around here on old routes so I was psyched to learn this technique.

Comments: Just kidding you about the book Angel. I am so sorry that somebody took that stuff. I always worry a little bit about stashing gear but it sucks to see stashes being stolen. I have a few extra bolts that I can give you to help offset your loss.

Sounds like you are right. Maybe rats of a different kind!

Comments: Sorry Angel. I hope EFR is right.

Last summer some keys disappeared from a tent at the Reef parking area. Turns out some critter pulled them under a nearby shrub and was chewing on the nylon key ring. Luckily they were found but it was not fun.

Comments: Finally catching up on my feedback after two weeks running around like mad. Climbed this with Arjun early this month and actually had a lot of fun. Very exposed but reasonable climbing at the top. A single set of cams and stoppers did the trick.

I looked the arÍte at the top, particularly where I had to step around left to open air. Nice climb Arjun and David!

Comments: On Feb 27th two anchor bolts and four protection bolts were replaced with hardware provided by the ASCA. The anchor on top of pitch 1 is now two Fixe rap anchors. The anchor on top of pitch 2 was already replaced. Two of the original bolts were still in good condition (3/8" split shafts with good stainless steel SMC hangers). These were not replaced as they still have many years left in them. The route is in prime shape now.

We still have to remove a temporary bolt from the top which serve... more >>

Comments: Hey Alex,

As I look at Eric's post I'm pretty sure it was intended to be humorous and friendly. He often jokes that he loves climbing everything; his remark that you also love climbing everything doesn't seem to be derogatory. Just my take.

Comments: Lol camera adds 30 years.

Clay is correct, it is a three bolt anchor. I do have ASCA bolts in hand for the bolts in the photo but have not gotten to them yet.

I will get them swapped out after the closure though. :)

Comments: Hey Arjun, thanks for the photo!! It is on the S face, good catch. There are two bolts protecting the poor rock in the beginning. Since the rest of the rock is better, only a few bolts were installed where there wasn't reasonable gear. It makes for a bold lead; it is probably a similar commitment level as Overcoming Inertia. It will be interesting to see if you guys think it is PG13 or R. In the interim I will keep it posted it as an R.

Marcy and I are thinking of coming up agai... more >>

Comments: Teenage Wasteland is an enjoyable outing, particularly the first two pitches. My understanding is that the route heads left after the second pitch instead of continuing on Sweeny Direct.
