Comments: Darren, that's just wrong.

Comments: I really, really liked this route (and I thought it was a bit easier than Lacy Doggie Panties, so if that one is .10c, then this one is... .10c- ?)

Comments: Sure: I created two layers, each containing the photo. I lowered the contrast on the top layer, and then erased the area of the crags. Finally, I added the text labels (which aren't links—I assume you're referring to the caption).

The links in the caption are formed by using the standard mp.com link format: [[item number]] (e.g., [[105739715]], which is displayed as Hard Rock).

Comments: I'm sure Darren K. can tell us the name and other vitals about this route. He told me there are three named climbs to the left of his bolted 5.9; this is one of them.

Comments: I added the alternate finish. An additional bolt at the top of the face, then two bolts over the steepest part. Airy, scary, and fun. The rating is still under consideration (the two opinions so far...mid 10 to low 11).

Comments: This is a fun route!

The rock gets progressively better the higher you go, until a simply stellar third pitch on excellent, beautiful quartzite.

For all of you choss haters out there, however, be aware that the first pitch of this line is pretty loose.

Comments: "I think this should all be included as one route."

That statement actually raises a question I've pondered from time to time: Should segments of multi-pitch climbs be listed separately from the full route if the segment is easier than the full climb and can be reached without climbing the full route? This primarily applies to first pitches (as with Cool World or Cool World Direct), but can also (as here) apply to later pitches. Note that I'm not suggesting that the full route ... more >>

Comments: The ghost of my right ring-finger tendon still haunts a shallow, two-finger pocket on that route.

Comments: "100ft of choss"—You say that like it's a bad thing :-)

You must have gotten on different routes than I did. I knocked off one small rock the whole time, and that was while being lowered.

Comments: Thanks, Christian. However, to keep the difficulty of the finish in line with rest of the route, the route goes up the left side of the roofy bit. Still airy and exciting, but enormous holds make it a slightly overhanging, 5.7-ish jug haul. I am planning on doing an alternate finish over the big part.

Comments: Have at it, Jonathan. Thanks for helping out. Have you climbed Rhinopotamus? If so, its description could use some love as well.

Comments: There are bolts for the upper pitches of Ledgarithm and Intimidator, and Run for Cover is finished.

I need to go and take photos to locate the stuff that was put in after I took this picture. Then I'll update this.

Comments: The fourth pitch isn't bad. Some fun moves near the start (especially exciting with water running down it).

Comments: Yeah, Christian, maybe just a little more...it was scary! You're going to put me in Depends prematurely.

Comments: Looks like he's wondering why the line doesn't go up those stacked, disconnected blocks.

Comments: I've now climbed this route to the second set of chains so I modified the description. The second part is a lot of fun (and definitely a "pump-fest", as advertised).

Note that lowering off the second set of chains may be a bit complicated. We managed to lower all the way to the ground with my "70m" rope, which actually measured out at 72m when it was new. When the climber was at the ground there was 1 foot of rope left before the belay device (a knot is a good idea).

Also, managing rope drag m... more >>

Comments: Someone has added a new bolt between the third and (former) fourth bolt. Judging from the rock dust (and the plethora of fresh tick marks), it may have even been done today. It's not a bad place for a bolt, but it certainly wasn't there the last time I got on this.

Comments: My understanding is that the line is a project that hasn't yet been redpointed. I belayed Darren on it this past spring (which is why I was hanging from Oscar's chains and didn't do the top part of Oscar) but he didn't finish it.
