Comments: Looks steep and highly featured. There ought to be some very nice face routes on that wall.

Is there much loose stuff?

Comments: Fun place. Lower-angle face climbing, big holds, beautiful scenery, and tons of space for more routes. Some good places in the river to dunk into after climbing as well. Nice to see someone write it up here.

When clean, it is a fantastic route.

Comments: Thanks Nickley.

Maybe you can post these sport climbs here, and let us all know about the history of the routes and who first put them up.

If I had put up a sport route, cleaned it, and bolted it, then I might not be pleased to have people swinging their metal tools at it. But I have no knowledge of this area or who the FA persons are.

Comments: Nice to see someone on it. I hope you guys did pitch 2 as well. If not, you ought to come back for it.

Comments: I've been wanting to do this climb, but the picture makes it look like a wide crack -- I'm looking more for a thin tips and stemming experience. Is this wideness just deceptive lighting?

Comments: You're welcome.

The listing now says 'trad' again. I hope to visit this crag sometime soon --I pass through often enough, it's about time I checked it out.

Comments: I'm confused as well -- on the page I'm looking at, it says "sport".

At any rate, having some bolts doesn't make it a sport route. The route description mentions some gear sizes, which I suppose, must supplement the bolts for the average leader of such a route.

Comments: Yes, very nice, but what is a "hanging crack"?

Do you mean "overhanging"?

Comments: Thanks a lot for posting this Andrew.

Which lines are the variations? Do they go left or right?

(Also, if it helps, Mt. Project has an overlay drawing tool for photos.)

Comments: You mean that V6 = Index 11b/c? But if you stack them, doesn't the rating go down? Ben would like that.

About the proposed names, this is for the free version of the entire aid line? How about 'Narrow Arrow Overhang does not care"?

Beautiful line, but I have yet to try it.

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

or

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.
