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.

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.

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.
