Developer goggles?

A very fine local cragging destination anyway.

Hopefully I haven't provoked a diarrhea of outrage! LOL!

Fun is fun!

Which are the poser crags?

Should I walk like an Egyptian?

Donner is one of my faves. You just avoid crowds and enjoy the granite. Last time at snowshed we were the only party there. Some of the locals seem pretty into their own scene. I retaliate by not giving a crap.

35 minutes, door to Donner for me! I love the place. I don't generally do weekends there though.

Damn Ron, you last go there in 1992??!!! LOL!!!

I think it's the Bay Area crowd on the weekends?

Top Tahoe five for me:

Donner, eagle canyon, woodfords, lovers, sugarloaf

Pretty much that order.

You guys have some strange notions!

I just like climbing, don't need some funky reasons to like where I'm at. Think I'll go climbing right now!

Post on, Chim! Post on, Ron!

Not what I'm talking about, Chim. You're right though, you guys are better than us posers. Enjoy the heights! I'll just be climbing like a schlep.

Yeah, Ron, I'd say calling quality rock a "ho" is funky. Or whining because -gasp!- you saw other people there. Funky monkey. Dunno, I guess I know how to adapt better there. My opinion of what's better differs guys, that it makes you rage sh#t your pants is what's funkay! Enjoy your funk!

Sounds like a ho!

My immediate plans include some banged out bitches in yose and red rock.

I've been spending some time up at Babylon Crag lately. Great lines, plenty of potential, and not a single other person. Definitely stoked for some cold weather scending at the fords though. Dan - I'd love to get a look at the topo of your fortress climbs. Those gems will probably keep me busy all winter.

Dan - I've never been able to figure that topo out. Where does Weak Stick start as a point of reference?

Babylon is good. Dirty but bullet rock with plenty of corners and splitters and slab. I have a picture topo I can send you but am wary to post it up for fear of the hordes "discovering" this historic stone. ;)

Babylon at its finest.

Hence the quotes, Ron. Much has been added/upgraded since then.

Hey Laine, Babylon Crag is good. I wouldn't know about the eponymous climb though! Above my paygrade.

My friends have been going there lately. Sounds like the manzanita is as thick as ever. They have a line they are planning to bolt there, probably a Spring fling with the weather though.

Damn you and your big words, Jeebus! Manzanita is not that bad - kudos to whomever took the time to cut out a decent trail. I did 4 routes there last weekend, 3 of which are not in the guide book, all of which were stellar. Okay, enough thread drift.

Thread drift? Why, Babylon is just North Woodfordsistan is all.

Trail's better? Cool! I'll bring the machete next time for a little trimming too. Maybe I can roust the boys for a cool weather drilling. You don't need warmth for that!

Yeah, I read a thesaurus or two too many as a kid or something.

The trail getting there is nonexistant. But around the base they've done a decent job. But that's just a sign of solitude. Did your friends put up those climbs on the upper south side of the wall? I did a 5.10+ up there that was amazing (but dirty). Double hand cracks to a steep single handcrack on a detached pinnacle thru a roof to flaring fingers. There's a chminey climb right next to it. Very cool stuff.

Nah, they didn't do that stuff. They've got a line in the works I'll stay mum about. Actually, I think they just did one visit recently. But that's a lot for the area!

You been on PCT Crack yet? That's an interesting line.

Not yet but it's on the list along with Helping Hands.

That was developed AFTER I got on PCT Crack. PCT was mungey as sh#t at the top. Like an FA without the credit! I climbed through it like a true moss man. Very cool climbing, and would be even better clean (which I hear it is now).
