Hey Ice Climbers,

Found this shot on Doug's blog




Looks pretty well formed here.

Has anyone ever had luck finding the bolts I've heard are on the rock "inside" this cave, before too much ice forms in the back of it? I'm aware of the ones up higher and to the right. Danke.

I know, Crag - just curious if they are even there. I've heard a couple different versions of the tale.

Agreed, which is why I thought it was odd that someone gave us the bolt-beta last year. Perhaps they didn't like the cut of my jib and were jackin' with me.

Edit: actually, if memory serves, there was quite a bit of exposed rock in the upper back wall of it

maybe you should just hire a guide to show you how to find the bolts.

Dude!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I told you the anchor/bolts were removed and anchor re-located atop the original location some five years ago.
Looks like you are making friends everywhere you post these days.
No wonder a slew of other sites have perm banned your ass.
Yur a Fkng Trolling Kook.

DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No you didn't tell me they were moved - you acted like I was crazy for even suggesting it. Like a toddler, you went off about how I obviously was lying about ever even being in Lee Vining, that there were bolts above and to the right (which I already knew of).

The guide with the couple next to us gave us the bolt beta a year ago, and there was exposed rock in the back of that little cave, but we didn't see them so I made a screw anchor.

In spite of your years of climbing, you have made several false IDs on local mountains/areas (just in dealing with me, personally)...I tend to double-check any "advice" you slather on the web.

Now go back-edit your posts like a good boy.

maybe you should just hire a guide to show you how to find the bolts.

I don't hire guides - I argue with them. Seriously, though: it's a shame that it's so hard to learn about areas from people who have been climbing there for years...getting info is pulling teeth sometimes...almost does require paying someone. Of course, I'm only referring to gents like the Chef. Unsubstantiated-Ego much?

fair enough! the bolts are there early in season ... as in right now.
then the ice tends to cover them and some times a cave forms there.
where there is is why you might want to hire a guide, only they know.
the "guides" put all the bolts in down there in lvc for cash of course.
it also makes it fun for the rest of us when nobodys home.

Thanks Stewart, it is nice to enjoy the fruits of someone else's work like some nice bolts in a perfect spot. I try not to count on them with ice - in my brief experience with ice climbing, it's been 95% gear anchors. Guides in general are pretty decent and friendly folk. On the converse, I'm still trying to figure out how the Chef holds a job. My only thought is that he turns it off when dealing with people in person, and his clients have never heard of the internet.

I've never seen Lee Vining that crowded in person - I try to climb in general when the weather is garbage or the approach sucks to weed out the bigger crowds. Little scary.

You have only been there ONCE!

Trolling KOOK!

So lulzy, Chief. So lulzy.

I'm telling you, we should have a beer or two one of these days. We'd get along great.

Now Chief,

One of my favorite things about you, is this closely parallel kinda-reality you exist in...where you don't actually hear or read what's said or written, but create these fantastic dialogues that don't actually take place, but I'm sure...sound really good in your mind.

Perfect example: my extensive experience in Lee Vining. Where did that come from?

I'm not saying this because I want you to stop. It's a riot! You were in charge of people on a big ship with guns...that's hilarious! I'm hoping this dementia is a recent development, or at least you were an exception to the rule in the ranks back then.

Oh crap! Just saw that you added my line about my brief experience, in the same post that you say I claim extensive experience. Keep it up, mate! This is glorious.


EDIT: had to grab this before you edit or delete it...like you always do. I'm not sure what Paul Teare said, but I'm sure it was something making fun of your hilarious clown ass.

Have fun looking for the bolts Kook!

You sure do ask a very basic question for someone that supposedly has such an extensive period of time in LVC.

Just remember what Paul Teare said about who placed all them anchors while you're looking on your upcoming second visit ever.

Oh, definitely checkmate.

I'm cracking up.

EDIT: Wow, Chief, that only took about 3 minutes for you to start deleting your posts. I estimated 5-6. Well played.

EDIT#2: gotta hate print screen, yeah?

Wow, what a zoo! I climbed there one time back in the late 80's, we did the route with the cave and another to the R that was thin and scary. There were some people around but nothing like that photo. Steve Schneider was soloing up things and jumping off into snow drifts, like a professional crazy man. Afterwards, the Shepherd's Pool and alcohol poisoning.

That sounds awesome, nothing beats a good professional crazy man. It will be interesting to see the turnout this weekend with such a terrible approach (fresh snow over talus) and minimal decent ice. We're going to play it by ear, if we get up there and it looks like we're going to tear up a marginal base, we'll just head to Owens or something for alternate activities. Shepherds Pool a hot spring?

It's funny, Chief was melting down over at SP about how we were going to ruin Lee Vining for everyone by destroying the base if we climbed, blah blah blah. I don't want to ruin anything for anyone, but we joked about how great it would be to bust down all the ice on Chouinard, then spray a bunch of graffiti on the rock behind and take pictures. FYI for maniacs like Chief - screaming like a buffoon about an issue like the early ice doesn't go far with people. The calm, well-thought out advice given on reports like SMGs is way more effective.

As far as the Chief goes in general, I don't think anyone worries about him. He is entertaining, kinda like the old drunk uncle at the family reunion - ranting all crazy about some truck he used to race with aliens in back in '72. I've only had dealings with him for a short while, but it's been magical. He crafted some story about the FBI, does all this detective work trying to find where people live and work...tracked me down to my workplace in 2005...uhoh! I'm in big trouble now!

Nope. I've been tossed off quite a few of them as well.

Word to the Wise Taco people.

Watch out! This is the same "burchey" clown that has been tossed and or banned from "quite a few" other climbing websites for being nothing more than a stooge troll.

Including the one quoted above.

Just saying.

EDIT:

Burchey is jacking Copyrighted photos and placing them on his FB page:

Lol?

If you actually read that thread, you'll see ole Glassgowkiss - guy can't string together an English sentence, and it's full of profanity and crass language.

He's not banned. He's the reason I was banned, though. Going back and forth with that guy.

If you want to judge a soul based on how many forums he's been banned from, go for it.

I'll be over here with the thinkers.

Edit: Spelling, and this - nothing impresses me and the others with functional external genitalia more, than some weak anonymous moron that creates a new blank account to post up some nonsense.

Anonymous = you are garbage. I'm hardly a troll. I've create tons of trip reports, have done gear reviews/tips, etc. My pictures are all over the place, as well as my words. I try to always use BURCHEY as my name so people know who they are dealing with. You know why? Because I'm not a whiny little worm. I'm not ashamed of what I write, because I stand behind it. Not sure I can say the same for thee.

By your own admission burchey, above and on the Cascade Climbers thread that was linked, you have been "tossed" and banned for being absolutely nothing more than a disrupting and instigating internet troll on several other sites. Just a warning to the people here at the Taco as to the validity of who you burchey really are.
