Comments: This is a surprisingly good route with decent moves and very little traffic (because of the trad start). In my opinion maybe slightly harder overall than Jump Start and definitely more consistent.

Comments: Sorry BBourgeois, but I disagree. As much as I do appreciate replacing the crappy anchors, I still think the choice of the new anchor location is pretty poor given the ledge directly below it. I also won't bring the hammer to modify one of the best routes at RW to accommodate the arbitrary anchor placement. With time though, and enough people being lowered, a groove will probably form in the rock and there won't be a problem. Slow lowering may be sufficient to avoid the risk of rope damage.

Comments: Hey Burt -- thanks for the comment!

From the road we saw two guys climb the flow to the left (Quarry Monster?). There were two thinner flows to the right that looked little thinner than in your picture from last year. Not quite in (?). Next time we're there, I'd definitely like to walk in to check them out.

Comments: Thx guys! John, just remember that stealing the camera means you'll have to haul that beast.

Comments: Thanks Burt. This is taken with Singh-Ray Gold-n-Blue polarizer filter and I have yet to figure out how to use this thing right. It confuses the heck out of the white balance on my camera.

Comments: You're supposed to have shoes for this kinda work. Otherwise, you can tweak your big toe cranking on these crimps.

Comments: Uhmm...ok, gentlemen, I see you promote the more manly, testosterone loaded colors, such as yellow

Comments: Hey ChugachMan, we walked past Liberty on the way to Ptarmigan Ridge (we backed off from it). To us Liberty looked like a heap of ash, all the way to Thumb Rock, and to us it was completely out. But some guys did it the week before we were there (see other pics under Liberty). Go figure.

Comments: Thanks much, guys! We got soaked at the bottom of the cliff, climbed out in the rain, and then it immediately stopped, but the rainbow came out.

Paul, I shot this with Pentax K20D with the ultrawide Sigma 10-20mm lens and a polarizer filter. For the exposure I spot-metered the sky just above the horizon. I like this lens but it can be a bit soft (Sigma is coming out with a better version). For sharper pics I take Pentax DA* 16-50mm. I also have a Canon G10 when going to the mountains.

Comments: Doug, I stand corrected :) Thanks for the last remark although we were inspired by conversations with Dave Groth, ascents of Jason Huston, and videos of Dave Macleod. So the credit goes to these guys.
