Comments: Soo...I am miffed enough to feel obligated to defend my original comment. I never stated that I knew Rands' ascent as fact. I even doubted it at the time. I do not purchase North Face products or Urban Climber magazine because I do not believe they are core rock climbing supporters. I obtain most of this information from my library of over 400 magazines. I am just repeating things for other peoples benefit. I in no way, shape or form intend to perpetuate misinformation. And yes, I do pepp... more >>

Comments: It is not recommended to leave any valuables in your car while climbing at the VRG. The meth heads who patrol this highway corridor will smash your window and nick your stuff without haste.

Comments: Damn Brayne, you left your draws? That must have been some fall...props to you, for real. I am scared just reading the description. I've seen two or three great photos of this climb in magazines over the years and have always wanted to try it, but now I am having second thoughts.

Comments: I have read many times in print and been told from other climbers that Dark Boy is one of the best 5.13b's is the United States. The only thing that could improve this climb would be the setting (imagine if the Blasphemy Wall were in a peaceful wilderness than right next to a busy interstate highway).

The way the sections and their difficulties are dispersed remind me of the route Cote d'Azure at Rumney, New Hampshire. Beginning easy, followed by the business, then capped by what would be the... more >>

Comments: Jake braking is the loud chattering exhaust noise sound you will inevitably be barraged with by the copious semi trucks driving on I-15. It is produced when truckers use the compression release engine brake on their diesel engines to decelerate. Many municipalities that have truck routes pass through residential or business areas prohibit jake braking.

Comments: I read an article in an old Climbing or Rock and Ice rag of Bachar recounting his witness to a solo ascent of this climb by John Yablonski. Yabo made it through the roof, and pulling the lip he just freaked. He was super pumped. Bachar thought Yabo had no business being on the rig without a rope and told him so prior to booting up. So Yabo is panicking, maxing out on poor jams and his entire body starts quivering; no I mean violently shaking. Somehow between blood-curling screams ... more >>

Comments: The roof crack problem Fisticuffs is behind the spotters, above the yellow chalk bucket. The wet streak on the vertical wall is the finish. The problem starts back in the dark cave and climbs out.

Comments: From what I have read about 12 year old Drew Ruana on this route, he was fully committed and whipping from the upper crux. I think his ascent is incredible, Drew must be a tough young man.

Comments: The incredibly strong Finn Nalle Hukkataival was the first person to flash this standard V13 when he did so in December 2011. Ashima Shiraishi made what I believe was the first female ascent of Crown of Aragorn on March 20, 2012-when she was only ten years old!

Comments: The dedicated boulderer Angie Payne made the first female ascent of European Human Being late in the 2008 season. She first tried it at the end of the 2006 season fresh off a slew of V11 first female ascents in the Park. During 2007, she worked it often. After 3 seasons, she made the link, owing to her strength and perseverance.

Comments: Is the flake really that loose? Granted, the last time I was on the problem was in 2006 or so, but I remember it being quite solid. Like no worries, it's not going anywhere. I guess now it is rattling back and forth by an inch or two whilst still being keyed in?

If that is the case, rather than gluing I have another suggestion to consider. Locate the place on the flake that is abutting to the wall (probably in the center) and have multiple hands push it back flush to the wall while another... more >>

Comments: This problem and it's harder eliminate are so classic that I would suggest very, very discreetly gluing the starting flake. With the width and length of the detachment I think there would be opportunities to inject epoxy in areas that would never interfere with handholds. Also I would crush up some pebbles on the ground to camouflage the glue. This problem is so old and well loved that it would be a shame if the flake broke off. I think Casablanca is one of the top five V3's at GS, and the V... more >>

Comments: Johny Woodward is climbing The Pirate on the cover of Climbing magazine #104. Like Adam Stackhouse said, Michael Reardon free soloed this on July 12, 2006. Reardon reported that the first crux is in Zone 2-an ankle breaker, and the second crux is Zone 3-a trip to the morgue for sure. He also said that when he first tried the route a few years before his solo, the bottom crux was impossible, but later he never had a problem. Michael trained for this solo both physically and mentally. O... more >>

Comments: Jim Karn flashed The Heretic around 1990 if I recall the date correctly. It was during a time in which almost no other Americans were doing 5.13 first try. Europeans were tearing up Smith Rock and 5.13 onsights and flashes were no big deal, especially on Euorpean limestone. Karn's ascent was considered impressive in that at least one American was finally able to match the Europeans, and his future was promising. I think it was rated 5.13a at the time also.
