Comments: Thanks -

It is fun to read a little about the history of a route. This inspires me to try and add a bit to some of my additions.

Comments: Very nice description Sol, thanks.

Two questions though-
- Is this Dave Morolos the same as Dave Morales?

- How many bolts on the full pitch?

Comments: Is this problem spelled

1) Ross Bongo

2) Rosbongo?

The above video from Jonah shows it as 1). So I wonder if the listing here is correct.

Comments: Yes, the main area pages would help. Call it the "One-line description", "Abbreviated route description" or something maybe?

If I can stop being so lazy, I could try to get the system going at Index, and see if others pick it up.

Comments: Oh, I finally figured out the symbols "F(5b)", "M" etc. Nice system, I hope others start using it more.

Looks like the neatest spot to just hang out and enjoy the air.

Comments: Hi Kerwin,

Tom (Hummerchine) has rapped in from the top. His comments are just above. Ask him -- I'm sure he would give you detailed beta.

Comments: I think the added contrast (and whatever other processing was done) turns the photo into artwork. Viewed that way, it looks great.

Comments: There is also a boulder problem in D-ton (NW WA) by the same name.

Both routes look great.

Comments: Thanks Blake.
You might not have been first, but I'm sure you had the best style. Just wait though, and it might get a barefoot ascent...

The Index 11+ does cover quite a bit of territory (terrortory?), so I could imagine it slipping into that grade. And with the reliance on slopers, it could be pretty temperature-sensitive.

Comments: Thanks, Toby.

I just moved the photo to Blues main page. If you really want it deleted, I can do that for you. But it is a nice picture of the route. Have you done this one? Looks really hard.

Comments: Alright Doug, great job!

I'll give it a try next time I'm over there. I don't know of anyone who had led that, and the first time I even heard of a TR of the upper part was upon reading Ryan's comment on the regular Phone Calls page.
