Comments: yeah, I was not trusting my memory here. I know we passed the big horizontal passage of Banana Peel where there are bigger trees and went to next smaller horizontal with a tiny pine. I don't think there are bolts there.

Comments: Maybe we will see you out there, it's our dry zone in the spring and fall. I would like to hear what you think of them. The basalt takes an acquired taste, choss, but one learns to cope with it. Most ratings are way off at Vantage. Mr Clean is probably 10c. Bob's is 11a for 2 moves, Jihad is more sustained, but probably 10d. Crossing the Delaware is another good route.

Comments: Yes, exactly right, we still use them in construction quite a bit, and if it were SS with homemade SS hanger it would still be great. I would trust a 1/4 split drive Rawl over a rusty 1/4" or even 3/8" bolt. In granite or basalt anyway.

Comments: Hi Jon,
lower 2/3 is thin crux, then it has an interesting transition to wide hands. I would recommend Sinsemilla 10c, Mr. Clean and Jihad- both nice 11a's that are thin. picture is from Bobs your uncle, one of my favorite 11a's.

Comments: I was climbing this last Nov. and Jim Yoder was there, he says Marlene Ford made the first ascent. I guess someone stole the hangers, this still happens at Vantage.

Comments: maybe I was having a bad day, but I would say this is not a great warm up route. I did it as my first route out last fall and found it pumpy with sketchy pro. Make sure to find pro as it has a number of insecure moments.

Comments: in 2013 a foot hold came off mid way up this and cut our rope through to a strands of sheath. At least it was on the other side of the belay. Other then that it is a interesting little climb.

Comments: taking advantage of the spring weather in February to complete cleaning PBR. Used a cordless sawsall to remove the stump and roots, yikes that is hard work. Hammer and chisel too. Climbed it 3 times, really great however very wet.

Comments: This route is called Sloppy Seconds, first ascent by Gordon Small and Jim Sinclair, 1974. Has it also always been known as Sloppy Gordie? I climbed it thinking it 5.9 in an older book. would be great if cleaner.
