Comments: Originally done by Peter Nobles and Grossman.
We didn't know this. So I led it, when we first started doing stuff at Weather Top, and placed two bolts. When Peter said they had done it years before we chopped the bolts.
We also cleaned a bunch of loose stuff off the route.

Comments: OK I posted I would move it down in 2007. It took me 7 years to get around to it. Is this what they mean by a 7 year itch.

Comments: Could you upload a smaller photo. When I print this one it's still to big to use as a postage stamp??

You might want to pay attention to the resolution when your formatting your new guide book.

Comments: We scrambled onto the ledge from the right. You can get a small but good TCU to protect the moves out onto the face and up to the ledge where the first bolt can be seen.

Comments: Ray Ringle bolted this line years ago. If you cleaned off all the loose holds there wouldn't be a climb there at all. It would be a great climb if the rock was better.

It's a bit harder than .12-. Especially has the hold at the crux keeps crumbling away.

Comments: Your right Ronin I've never been bold enough to do a 30 foot 5.8 FA more than 20 feet from my car. You be bad.

"If so the answer is simple: don't climb at the Shaman Wall or really, on any of my lines... most are adults only." If this isn't thumping your own chest I don't know what is.

This has got nothing to do with ethics. I said your are, and should be, free to do FA's in any style you want. But calling anyone who might dare to attempt your death defying new route "bitches" is nothing ... more >>

Comments: Well lets see, most of the routes at the Outcroppings were put up in 2008. Squeezing the Lemmon II came out in 2000. That might be why there not in there.
Eric's a fairly forward thinking guy but that's asking a lot.

Comments: Oh boy, Geir banged in a 2X4 to protect a pitch in the Stronghold.

Cue the righteous outrage, in three, two, one....

Comments: Ronin,

First of all Hendrixson is not an asshole. He may be a bit too deeply mired in the sport climbing ethos these days but he's a good guy.

However, judging from the tenure of your comments when you posted the new route and your vehemence toward Hendrixson's post, you appear to be the asshole.

So you put up a poorly protected 5.8 route. Wow what a bad ass you are to all us bitches.

While I, with good reason, fully support your right to do routes in any style you see fit, you come off... more >>

Comments: Tyler, everyone, but you I guess, knows where the chessman is now. We originally posted it as a "super secrete area" as a tongue and cheek response to the Isolation Canyon developers. They posted loads of pics but kept the location secrete for quite sometime.

Anyway the first pullout on the right about a quarter mile past the 7 Cataracts Vista parking area is where you park for the Chessman. Just follow the drainage and trail straight up from the pullout. Lots of good climbs of all grades. ... more >>

Comments: I'm way too tired at this point to be smiling.
Guinness is already hopping around on her cast like it's no big deal.
IT was a great search and rescue effort. Guinness and I are both forever grateful.

I'm going to buy both Geir and Eric new packs big enough for me to fit in.
