Alex poised at the crux(?) of the upper part of Plumb Line. Alex got the crux with a dynamic move, I blew the shot.

Doc doing the Plumb Line crux statically.  Well at least the crux from the Patio on up. The real crux is apparently on the slab below the Patio level. From the Patio the crux, according to Doc, is not the overhanging crack move but the delicate climbing beneath it.

Comments: So who was out at Crow Hill working Jane on Sunday 2/2/2014? Neglected to introduce myself. Could use some new cold weather partners since Doug moved away and Kevin is involved in coaching his girls in basketball! Despite my decrepit appearance and the fact I had a grandson in tow, I am steady on belay, can consistently top rope CroMag, and will someday get the crux of Jane (on toprope!). On the negative side I do drink a fair amount of beer and have been known to bring a bit of whiskey along ... more >>

Comments: Franny's Folly Direct (5.10a/b) is a fun and challenging variation to Franny's Folly. Head up to the broad white streak under an overhang directly below Franny's Folly finishing left-facing corner. The line is clearly evident from Barrett's excellent route photo.

Surmount the overhang and finish straight up through LF corner. I have always top roped it. Might be a dicey lead although there is a horizontal above the overhang that is reachable from below that would take a good, medium-sized ca... more >>

Comments: Another thumbs up for the final pitch of Lakatakissima. Looking up I wasn't expecting much since it looked like it didn't get a lot of traffic. I was very pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Fun, interesting climbing at grade pretty much the entire pitch.

Comments: Daniel

I'm a tradster and not much of a boulderer. V3 on a good day. That said I wouldn't mind getting out and sharing problems with you sometime. I will give you a heads up next time I'm headed over there.

Only climbing a month and you got the problem you call Indian Headdress! Small edges indeed! Hadn't been on it for a couple of years. I couldn't get the third move off the ground on it yesterday. Didn't want to commit to the high foot to the first good little shelf since I don't have a... more >>

Comments: Daniel, thanks for the maintenance! Haven't done my circuit out there for awhile. I will look forward to some nicely scrubbed problems. If you are planning to visit the area, be careful when you are out there especially late in the day. It is a popular area for deer hunters, and you don't want to be mistaken for a deer. Between archery, shotgun, and muzzle loaders, it is on from now until the first of the year. I have stumbled across fully camouflaged bow hunters out there before.

Comments: Rocknice - Did you really sink a lot of jams on DC? Despite the name it didn't seem to me to offer a lot of jamming.

Also for a dubber like me the first slightly overhanging/vertical 30' with somewhat awkward feeling holds felt pretty pumpy. It always gets my attention. I definitely get rests but for me they are not entirely straight forward.

When all is said and done though still an absolutely great climb.

Comments: It is the V-groove that takes you off the left side of the huge ledge at the end of pitch 2. You go up left and then back right on less than great rock up to the double crack belay for the Pipe Pitch. The 5.8 crack variation goes off the huge ledge off to the right. If you have only done this 5.8 variation you might not recognize the terrain in the photo.
