i was at the lost cabin. when i saw the single bolt at the top of this one my thought was that it wasn't far enough down the wall to be tangerine according to your topo. but i didn't see anything else between this corner and the led zepp arete (that one was obvious). i wasn't looking too hard though as it was tough enough moving along the wall since it's all fairly overgrown now.

Cool, Dan! Sorry, just getting back to this thread. Work happens.

Was psyched to try it out Friday, but it's looking like crap. Maybe early next week with my erstwhile, numero uno climbing partner. Damn climbers and their road trips!

Thanks, Dan. Will check it out soon. Put me down for one of your guidebook too. It will be nice to have a resource worth buying that finally addresses the majority of the development in the canyon. I have a feeling the golden era has not yet even arrived there!

Thanks for the HOG beta, Dan & Laine. It turned out to be pretty darn obvious. My confusion came from having been up close to the climb around the corner before (goes up the "gunsight" of the Hand), and I somehow thought that was the route.

Anyway, we started with the direct start and continued on from there yesterday. Excellent pitches, it definitely lived up to the hype. It's pretty challenging in sections but we didn't have too much trouble getting through it, fortunately. With only a couple of hangs, we could definitely get the team red point next time, although I think the first pitch crux is the most testy of any on the route. Weird and insecure! It almost doesn't help to know the beta on that one because you're smearing on flakes that may just bust off.

The third and fourth pitches are stellar. Pulling the roof on the 3rd was wildly exposed. That pitch is like a sport climb, it's so overhung. The fourth was excellent fingers and corner fun.

Afterward, we did Smearing for Jesus. That was pretty darn good, although it will be better once the ball bearings are cleaned up a bit off of it with more traffic. Hopefully more folks get on it, it's fairly unique and fun climbing going from bolts to gear protected fun.

It was a good day up there and we were the only ones manning The Fortress.

Glad you sent it, Jebus. Definitely getting on that rig this season (or off season as the case may be). But since I broke my finger last week I'll have to live vicariously thru you guys for a few weeks.

Bummer on the finger! Hope it heals up soon! I'll try to do my climbing part, although work and life are a bitch with other plans sometimes.

Yes, superb-ness abounds up there, Dan. We were excited about getting on more. But my boon partner deserts me once again. For bikinis and sport climbing in Thailand. F'n punk.

Any of you looking to climb Tuesday or Wednesday? Looks like temps at the fortress will abide.

What spirit!

You think enough snow will have burned off by then?
Will watch the weather.

Eager over here to break out the skis or snowshoes,
still awaiting good base.

Think about a visit to High Altitude sometime,
I'll meet you. Lead wall features some fine routes right
now. I've got rope. :)

I don't know, footloose. I figured snow slogging to climbing would be the deal but maybe I'm fooling myself. As for the gym, that's kind of hard to psyche up for. I'd rather meet up on the outside ;). Don't get me wrong, I go to one in Reno, but the thought of day tripping for plastic training depresses a little bit. We will get out there, one of these days ;).

Ron, I'm still oscillating between Tahoe and Carson Valley. Let me know when you and Rick want to challenge yourselves on Sunny Delight at the CV Sentinel.

Jeebs, let me know if you come down, Wed is at least looking sunny and calm. Tromping up the slope - boots or snowshoes - could be fun as a minimum, opportunity to work on my tan, ha ha, and check out the climbing conditions. Would probably take a couple hours in the sun for the tan rock to warm I'm thinking.

I could also glass the chute on the south side, see how its base is coming along. It's a fun rip!

Beautiful outside this morning in Jacks Valley! Minus 10F, woohoo!!
