after OS soloing the first flat iron, direct route


the cop was actually pretty nice about it. just the typical safety talk (since he did this for boyscouts and knows all about it). bad quality video, but i wasn't the one taping! oh yeah, i suck at crack climbing...

flame on.

Awesome stuff. I've just posted this in the forum over on buildering.net and to be honest, we'd love to get some more details on the ascent. If you fancy writing something up, I'll post it to the front page. :)

More please. ;)

Growing a winter coat in Red Rock Canyon- December...
Awesome, thanks for sharing!

The cop was pretty cool, but I couldn't help but imagine how some trigger happy cops in Vegas might have reacted to one's buildering.:( That'd totally suck to be tased off the climb, and arrested on such a fine splitter crack...

With that being said, thank goodness we have Red Rock in our backyard in Sin City!

after OS soloing the first flat iron, direct route
Thanks for the positive response guys! As I was placing my first piece a woman looked at me and immediately pulled out her cell phone so I'm guessing that's who called the police. But I couldn't believe I got off Scott free. My friend belaying me was pissed he didn't get to climb it. And the cop said to ask for permission next time! It started with wide hands then at the top 15 ft was an overcammed 3 but perfect hands so no pro needed. Another perfect hand crack in another corner is still awaiting a FA. I placed 3 3s btw. And thanks Andy for spreading the vid! Dylan Dwyer

Nice send, but you should be charged with a felony for wearing those hand jammies. Zack S.

pshh. those ain't hand jammies, that's the last 3 feet of tape we had after i forgot my tape gloves at home. had to scrounge for that too.

that crack is about 4 ft deep so i just walked the cam through to the garage side after i untied myself and dropped the rope

So... you lied to the cop? I mean, obviously it's safer to just top out than lower on a cam, but you didn't have to top out to retrieve them with that method, correct?

Correct. I told a fib so that I could finish the crime. First time he told me to come down I was thinking, then said, "man I've gotta go to the top" Dylan Dwyer
