Comments: Thanks Fat Dad and Benjamin.

I saw your comments and this post after so long and it still makes me smile. That was 2005 ... Her first lead. She is now leading rock climbing trips through her university in the Sierra's and loves loves loves climbing. she still can't climb harder than me, well yes she can , but it's once to look back at that day every now and then.

Comments: Have to say this was pretty fun. The first pitch of "...cowboys..." goes pretty easy and then The fun stuff. Up and right of the rap bolts, turn an overhang with HUGE holds and follow the bolts. Was able to put some pieces in to make the overhang move. Great views and exposure. 5.8+/5.9 you pick

Comments: Ken said,

"How many members of the general public have you discussed this with, because my experience so far has been that most of the dissent has been expressed in climbing forums like this, by people who aren't even that close to the actual players and/or facts."

I have read all of your comments up to here and wonder about the above statement the most. As was stated above, Outside magazine will run an article, backpacker, climbing, rock&Ice, etc. and these are just the related journals. My w... more >>

Comments: I just recieved this email from Patagonia.

"Patagonia ambassador Dean Potter’s May 7 free solo of Delicate Arch has generated significant controversy about the legality and appropriateness of the climb of what has been described as a national icon. We’ll be interested to follow the controversy and to listen to views of those on both sides.

A few facts are in order. First, no crime has been committed. The National Park Service has conceded that its regulations were ambiguous and that they will ... more >>

Comments: I am giving this route 2 stars with a caveat. It is a route for children. Kids will have a blast on this face. Mine did. Thank you Kayla and family for such a fun place to take my daughter.

Comments: I have to agree with Chris. Although not a classic, there are some classic moves. The bulge is downright fun and the finger crack (IMHO) fell a bit easier than 10c. I can't usually do 10c fingers!

Comments: The name comes from a sign that was observed in the Michael Moore Movie "Roger and me". He actually made a sequel to "Roger and me" called "Pet or Meat" It refers to a woman who was so down on her luck at finding a job in Flint, Michigan that she raised rabbits. She would skin some for meat sale and the others were sold as pets. Hence, Pet or Meat.. The woman was so interesting that she was a highlight of the first film and became the focus of the sequel. I recommend both films, and the climb.

Comments: I will have to disagree with Locker. I thought the route was fun and that pitch 1 had a thoughtful move over the first roof. P1 was easy to protect. P2, don't hang out. It's easier to keep moving on the good holds under the roof. Way too many people watching for my taste though.

Comments: This is a really fun route. Steep and featured with leaning stances. Worth the effort. While there I did the wide crack 3 feet left into an offwidth. Also 5.9ish. Is this a route with a name? Just curious. A bit of a spooky down climb to the climbers left!

Comments: I have to agree with Chris and Locker. This was a very fun route. Well protected and very different then the typical Joshua roof. It's all there with a good reach.
