Gotcha. Thanks for the beta, Kenny. Kinda neat not knowing the ratings and just climbing them.

There looked to be another thin crack with anchors in between them and some nice looking cracks a little bit below the orange corner. All in that same 9-10 range. Would you agree?

Laine, Tall People reach, Short People Climb...height dependent. Climbed it many times before I placed the bolt. Tall people may think it whimpy!

Really good climb, Dan. Slick feet gaining the crack then a perfect splitter to the top. A nice warm up climb. Heading back Saturday to check out some of the upper tiers. Any suggestions?

Laine, all the routes on the upper tier...the area above where you described are all stellar. The best route in my opinion is Atvian Grin. The direct start shouldn't be missed, a thin crack splitting a bulging block directly below the business, I added the direct stsrt after Shawn's fa. Kenny did you start that way or did you climb the easy blocky stuff to the right? Anyhoo we're in Ely and will be back at the fords on Saturday as well See you'all there. Dan

Dan - after climbing Tall people reach, Short people climb 2x, I'd have to say it's definitely not whimpy for "taller" people (I'm 5 11 on a good day). That 10 foot finger section above the bolt is stout for a 5.9. It does make a nice initial pitch to access the upper tier. I thought Ativan's and that new 10c on the upper where stellar though. Props to Kenny for his 13+ hours of scrubbing on that one, it was worth it!

Great work, gents!

Hard to believe it was once so dirty. Just goes to show we can all clean up well with a bit of effort (well maybe not everyone)...

went up today and removed the rest of the questionable stuff on the new route on the upper tier (Dr. sleep) it's good to go! take doubles of small to med stoppers and camalots to #3 and tie a not in your 70 meter it doesn't make it down!

good to see you out there Laine.
