Comments: It's easy to grin when your ship comes in
And you've got the stock market beat.
But the man worthwhile,
Is the man who can smile,
When his shorts are too tight in the seat.

Comments: Tragic, especially given that they were only a "mile-and-a-half from Tioga Pass Road" (~ a 30 minute walk).

Comments: Jordan, I think you'd be hard pressed to find any bolt ladder listed on the entire site as harder than A1/C1, whether it be in Fisher Towers mud or Yosemite granite. Although I have not climbed this particular route, I would find it difficult to imagine a C2 or higher bolt ladder. Maybe Chris O has an opinion on it?

Comments: Agreed, "C1 X" is self-contradictory. C1 by definition means that the placements (or in this case a bolt ladder) are straightforward and solid, and there is virtually no risk of any piece pulling. Also, "taking a whipper" is not really applicable when it comes to aiding a bolt ladder.

Comments: According to IMDB, "Deep Throat", the 1972 release starring Linda Lovelace was "possibly the most culturally influential porn film ever made".

Legend has it that Tobin Sorenson named the route, which was unusual given his "squeaky clean personality".

Comments: Sports Challenge Rock - West Face is already in the database. Do we really want to list it twice in the database - once as a "climbing" area and also separately as part of a "bouldering circuit"? Seems confusing doing it this way.

Comments: "I thought after climbing this route a few years ago that the rating was for climbing the thin crack, not the one where you can wedge your a$$ in."

Oh, I guess you mean like that? That would explain it.

Comments: HUGE potential might be overly optimistic. The rock quality along the coast is not exactly Yosemite granite. Sea stacks like Slate's Spire are worth climbing once "for the experience". Granted, the views are 5 star!

Comments: Single rope rap off 2-bolt anchor, although a tyrolean would probably be pretty fun. The anchor was replaced on 5/20/06.

Comments: Correction to the Supertopo: the bolt anchor indicated atop P1 (p. 123) is gone. Instead, build an anchor in the 5.7 thin crack to the left.

Comments: Correction to the Supertopo: the bolt anchor indicated for Oak Tree Flake and Grant's Crack on Swan Slab (page 98) is gone. Instead, go ~20' higher to a small tree with webbing/rap rings.

Comments: A minor correction to the Supertopo description: pitch 4 is ~80' (not 100), and pitch 5 is ~160' (not 140). Note the combined length for both pitches is unchanged.
