Comments: A fun route for someone looking for a little variety on a much-traveled cliff. Pitch 2 is a real gem in my book. A better link-up than the one described here might be to link Lotta Brews' first pitches into P3 of Black Magic, but this would bump up the grade a bit, and avoid the thought-provoking roof-to-traverse section on P3 of Bruja's, which kept the excitment pretty high for the grade.

Thanks to my thankless partner who endured yet another run up a moderate to scope out what needed to be r... more >>

Comments: Go chop away, choppy macChopperson. Bolt chopping is good, right?

Talk-action=0. Let's see the video of the bolt chopping up on this page. Get to it, attaboy! Bonus points if you wear boy pants while doing it!

Comments: ^^^^^^My six masters' degrees in engineering tell me that 2 drops of loctite save these kinds of posts and the eventual removal of the hardware that's paid for by kind donations.

That's just the benefit of spending 80 years in engineering school.

Or, having three brain cells, total. Stapled together. With duct tape backup.

Comments: Roger, thanks for the updating. I'm working a bunch right now but got word from some of my crew that this will be taken care of very soon. Thanks for good description of the problem, it helps out a lot for the replacement effort. -K

Comments: Yeah, it's really too bad you didn't rap-bolt this splitter, Wilder. That really would've been something to see. And I miss that rotten flake, too-I hear all the good climbs in Vegas have rotten, wedged flakes that you have to "micro-crimp" on. Too bad people clean loose stuff off of climbs, ground-up. That's really an ethical boondoggle. Someone call the BLM narc hotline, IMHO. That's something to do if you're bored. Why bother climbing when you can gossip? PS nice work on the toprope.

Comments: ^^^That's my boy! The chockstone is safe, the problem is just what Scott said: people taking "consumer" routes for granted and not carrying cord to back up anchors.

Bring some cord, sirs. It's your own responsibility, and if you're not an ASCA donor yet, that might be a good first step after buying some webbing and a knife to cut it.

Comments: That is so weird. I didn't think people did that kind of thing in red rock. I guess the end (a mess) justifies the means (anything goes, except ground-up and good style)

Comments: Janes is referring to the new routes that have epoxy drip patterns spread out underneath the left one with shitty homemade permamank, and the one on the right with the extra visible black chains on bolts three feet apart on 5.8 moves.

I'd be happy to out the culprits on here, but the local ethic seems to be to keep that kind of information quiet. The right route isn't bad minus the chain nonsense, the one on the left looks like a glued up pile that isn't calling my name with so many good pitch... more >>

Comments: 80m rope or doubles sounds smarter to me. Adding that much cord to an anchor to *barely* make it down is more of a bail technique than standard operating procedure on a trade route. The anchor will be cordless and nice beefy ASCA stainless once I get a day to jump on it again with Shirtless Tendon. Downclimbing a blank overhanging wall because you didn't bring the correct rope to descend sounds like not-fun in my book.

Comments: Bolts on this one are less than stellar right now with the exception of the top two stations. I particularly like the use of the power drill to chip out channels for the hangerless chain/washer setup to sit flush. The mixed metal pro bolt setups on P1 leave a lot to be desired.

How much tougher would it have been to just use a hanger or three to make these stations legit? I guess chipping and mixing metals seemed like a better idea.

I'd suggest trying the 5.7 R chimney variation to the 1st pit... more >>

Comments: Rob, you and I replaced bolts on Delicate Sound and Tales From The Gripped that day. We didn't have to touch P2 of Our Fadda as all that was already done. The ones we didn't finish dealing with were on P2 of Tales, that was when we finally gave in to our scratchy throats and descended to get water and Haterade.

I think Roger's description is making it sound like there is a sport section on that pitch, but I'd bet at most someone may have replaced the formerly chopped second bolt recently. This ... more >>

Comments: This photo shows a variant to the actual line. It is possible to break right into "Voodoo Doll", and head up to the Black Magic anchor. If climbing Bruja's Brew, step left from pitch one's bolted belay, climb more or less straight up until about 25 feet below the roof, belay on finger to hand sized gear. The next pitch steps right, takes a seam to the roof, climb straight up from the only obvious nut placement (steep, but 5.6) then scoots left to a steep pull near greenery that deposits you on a... more >>

Comments: Finally got out to finish this one after checking out the first pitch variation (.11)a while ago. Hangover day meant the #5 was forgotten at home, which was a major bummer trying to get up the slick offwidth black crack around the corner. Got a wild hair up and hopped left onto a finger and hand splitter that was crunchy enough that it might have been virgin before today, .10- range, techy and pretty fun, minus snapping all those virgin footholds. This and a little creative thinking puts t... more >>

Comments: 20 points for spray painting directly on the rock without using a template or making tape to keep paint off the rock.

100 points for using carbon bolts with stainless hanger, this is classic setup for galvanic corrosion, if you don't believe me go climb at the stone wall sometime.

Comments: All pro bolts replaced with bomber ASCA stainless. Enjoy this unusual route! It got the name for a reason...

As far as gear goes, Jerry's guide reccommendations are a little strange. bring at least 2 00 TCUs, 3 will get used, and the largest piece you'll need other than that is a .75 (single). No Z1/Z2 required, and the lack of pins is not a bad thing, where they were placed, they weren't going to hold much. Good tips cam placements abound. The rock on the upper fingers section is brittle, bewa... more >>
