Comments: I watched two bull elk fight in that meadow with several cows standing watch. Then we climbed the Sickle. Great day.

Comments: La Sportiva Testarosa, size 39, $100.
Almost new shape, good sharp edges on the rubber. Used one day at the gym and one climb at Tensleep before we decided they were just too small.
Serious hotrods!

Comments: Mike shared this pic with me several years ago as I began a long obsession with the Cassin. For years, I could think of no cooler thing than chillin on the bivy ledge at the top of the Japanese couloir and drying out my mittens. Perhaps the mittens were damp because of a death defying crevasse screamer and a heroic extrication on the glacier below. After 2 AK trips and having not set foot on the route, I can still look at this pic and say, maybe someday...

Comments: Really good stuff. My girlfriend got me a painting a few Christmases ago. It is a bomber blue #3 Camalot being plugged into a desert splitter. You see the action from inside the crack. It hangs above my desk where I type this. Highly recommended and prices are a bargain for what you get.

Comments: A great route in its current state. Better with new bolts. Worse with more bolts. That nice little run over very easy and large holds should be no issue for anyone who has any business on 12c. My $.02.

Comments: More info about such an undertaking is found here:

So is the "Walk in the Park" different from the "Glacier Gorge Traverse"? If not, then credit goes to this Jim guy. Rossiter's got enough FA's, right?

Comments: No real crux? Were we on the same route? If you climb this route, you will know where the crux is. I bet you can pick it out from the ground.

Comments: Really good route. I thought the bottom 12b was my favorite in the canyon. This extension only adds value. Anyone out there to confirm the 13a grade? It felt easier than at least one 12d I have done. But that was 9 months ago and I could be stronger now. Thoughts?

Comments: Yes, sorry about that. I have your old guidebook somewhere. I could not remember the name and I do recall that everyone called it the "Open Book." I grew up around there. Logtown was home crag for several years. I will never forget my father working and finally climbing this route. Many a climber has learned to use their feet on this one. A fine route. I forgot the story of Todd's fall and injuries. Old Dave told me that one. Modern gear took the sting out of a trad lead of this one, bu... more >>

Comments: I broke off a few holds in working the route. One has some significance but probably does not change the grade. At the top a good crimp on right lets you grab a sidepull with the left before reaching up to the anchors. A few bits pulled off that sidepull and I then decided to skip it for a higher intermediate before grabbing the finish jug. Good route, big moves and bouldery.

Comments: Fine climbing, but the difficulty is somewhat contrived in places. Look closely as you clip those bolts, as you may notice that if you were climbing 15' left or right, you would be on an easy crack or some jugs. Oh well, the moves are good and the climb is fun. Not 10+. The rebolt looks good- the originals are strong as bubble gum these days. B stepped up and led the crux. She is the not a strong slabber and found the crux trivial.

Comments: Confirmed! The last hanger is gone. This makes for a memorable runout to the anchors facing a 50 footer. An onsight to remember.

Comments: Descent comments: In 2007, I did the North Ridge and descended to the North and West at no harder or more dangerous than 2nd/3rd class. This seemed to be the quickest way back to the start of the North Ridge. Yesterday, we climbed Syke's and decided to try the South and East descent option. I did not care for it, but here is how we did it:

The descent starts at the saddle between the sub-summit where Syke's tops out and the true summit- you will see some cairns leading east (out over the fa... more >>

Comments: Took 10 tries to send, but was so close after 3 tries- so frustrating. I fell on the upper dyno move every time as the July heat made my palms drip. I have seen much stronger climbers than I fall from the upper diagonal crack. You muscle heads need to learn to jam!!! Any 5.10 crack climber should never fall after that last dyno.
What a route. What a relief to be done. The mystique surrounding this one is real. Time for a beer.

Comments: Never been to this area, just a quick question- How can 5.9+ turn into V5 if you take the rope away? 5.9+ is closer to V0-. Rope or no rope, the grade is the same.
