Comments: As I said, we kind of blitzed in and out just doing Tarzan and then putting up The Wizard. Something about the army guys trying to kill themselves and throwing stun grenades around kind of put us off to the place after a couple of altercations with them. I've posted a picture of Marco on it occasionally on ST and mentioned it to Ed Webster, but otherwise it was all pretty stealth from a historical perspective.

Comments: Thanks. No, the doubles just seemed prudent in keeping pressure off a sort of circularly equalized nest of micro stoppers (prior to the cam) which had a screamer on it as well. We also sliced the screamer bartacks at a steep angle with a razor blade in a bid to soften the loading curve on the nest. The screamer on the cam was what took care of the rigid cam stem and is probably unnecessary today as the horizontal slot itself is basically truck.

Comments: Isn't that Poison Ivy? (Need to get back there soon)

I believe Jills was a right leaning/trending affair.

Crikey I'm get senile.

Won't matter if I can still send it I suppose...

Comments: You do not under any circumstance want to blow the last move off the climb. The crux[s] were the first and last moves.

Comments: a) Hump? It's 'Camel's Back', not 'Camel's Hump' - weird that would somehow change.

b) 'The Gully's finish is what you have marked as the 'Devil's Backbone' finish, the marked finish was a slightly spicier solo variation. It had two starts, the traditional one marked until the ground washed out, and the more commonly used marked start to Camel's Back and traverse left into The Gully. Also, The Gully typically went left in the 'gully' up to the seventh dash you have marked for 'Devil's Backbone'... more >>
