Comments: Thanks John... been there done that. And I totally and respectfully disagree with you, as someone who served on the board. There is zero interest in managing the property from an ecological perspective. And the bylaws could be interpreted and even amended if the will was there in order to provision the use of climbing equipment for conservation purposes. As you said... by laws could make some things difficult, but not out of question or impossible. The problem is you have a few bad apples holdin... more >>

Comments: The RMF board doesnt care about environmental impact of climbing, at least not enough to do anything about it. A few idiots and a broken ethic.

Comments: Hahahaha... you made me laugh thnx man. I was kinda like really only two stars??

I think one could stay on route and place gear, i just don't think you could fall on the upper half of the route. Did you lead Black Orchid? That could be a first lead for that route.

Comments: Looks like you got the SA Chris? Did you send on TR or on Lead? Surprised you think its only 11c/d... the move around the corner at the undercling and subsequent compression sequence always felt a harder then 11+.

I've always though that you could probably get some cams in Cary's Corner on the lower section. But what would you do to protect the top half of the route? Falling at the crux move around the corner wld lead to a large swinging fall into the left wall. Falling beyond that point, I wo... more >>

Comments: Just a warning... the power lines host massive tick populations and we stopped going in that way all together as we weren't excited about pulling 10+ ticks off us per visit.

It is also significantly longer if you are trying to get to the west side and you also miss some good bouldering between bald rock and the basin.

Comments: Awesome. Ya there was some discussion about which wall to place the bolts. There were several factors that lead to us placing them on the left wall. One was the right wall has sections of very questionable rock while the left wall is solid the whole way up. Second, was if they were on the right slab you would be taking falls onto the slab which is generally not preferred. One's preference of where they should be prob depends a bit on what technique is used to climb. We would like to have a bolt ... more >>

Comments: Found a whole lot of tick marks on this on Sunday... This is a closed project. If you want an open project... the left wall of Crack Rock corner is an open project. Please respect my request or I will stop posting new areas on MP.

Comments: Just went by West Rock today to find the only other project in the state I've requested closed full of tick marks and chalk and the open project that I bolted specifically for others to have to have something didn't have any chalk on it. Pretty fu*king lame. Whoever you are, you just ruined the party for everyone... I will no longer be publicizing any new areas until all my projects are complete. Selfish climbers...

Comments: Any line you see that's not documented on MP is an FA waiting to happen... Almost every bit of stone out there has an FA on it waiting. Just use your imagination. What kinda proj are you looking for, grade, aspect, height, etc? Please record any FAs on here though so we can keep track. I know a lot of folks have climbed here but very few have posted FAs.

The No Fall Wall has plenty of other lines on it for you to get your FA on. As for my motivations... its been my long standing project of m... more >>

Comments: No rules... just respect. I put in the time to find the area and document it publicly and am asking for you and others to stay off my project, respectfully.

You CAN go climb on it... you can even send and claim the FA. It would be matter of disrespect to me. I'd certainly take it personally since the only reason this area is public is because of my hard work and sharing it with you on this site. Same goes with other areas like West Rocks Climbing. If I took the time to find clean/equip it and y... more >>
