Comments: Simple: A wise climber wastes not money on TC's "guide" books.

Comments: Finally got on the 3rd pitch. Highly recommended. #3 cam for the initial roof. A 70 will land you back at the belay @ the top of Tarzan, but you have to put your rope around the belay tree. Pulled fine though.

Comments: It's 35 feet long, how many draws do you think? I know it's a crazy long approach (5 min), but carrying enough draws shouldn't kill you. And do you want a blow-by-blow beta description? Just go get on it. Pfft.

Comments: Agreed. That's always the way I've descended as well. Pretty straight forward.

Comments: Agreed. And I'd say it's a bit more than 45 feet-likely 60 or 70.

Comments: Thanks.
I needed that.
My point is that the crag is quartzite.

Comments: Where the hell is your wrist?!!?

Or your forearm for that matter?

Is your hand attached to your upper arm?

If so, forgive the insensitivity.

Comments: Depends on the carrier of course, but generally LCC is more cell friendly than BCC as it is a glacial canyon and therefore generally straighter. Certainly there are places where a signal is hard to find, but it's usually not too far of a walk to get one.

Comments: That's nice. I'm sticking with the name I gave it since it really isn't a route, but more of an approach.

Comments: The next fin up and right with the R-facing dihedral (zoom in) has 2 routes on it that look good with great rock quality. Theres a bit of gear, then a fixed nut, then 2 separate bolted lines. Easy to get to if you're up there. Didn't climb 'em as we were just out for a walk in the woods.

Comments: "the addition of anchors would make this route a bit more enjoyable."

Bullshit. Much more interesting to build an anchor.

Comments: Am I the only one that realizes a helmet won't save yer noggin from a rock that size? Of course you should wear a helmet, and of course it may stack the odds slightly more in your favor, but it's funny how the comments of "wear a helmet" give the proverbial hall-pass for every chossy area with said inherent risk. Helmets are magic that way.

Glad the sucka missed you.

Comments: Thanks Kirk, I'm glad you cleared that up. Certainly the most difficult crag to find.

EVAR!!!

Maybe we could paint a line on the ground from the road to the crag. I'll donate the florescent pink paint.
