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

Laine, Weak Stick aka the approach pitch for inside out is the second set of anchors from the right... down low.

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.

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).

Yea Dan Seeliger has a great eye for new climbs. I guess when you own a refuge larger than Yose with massive walls, you get good at that kinda stuff. Not sure if he scrubbed PCT crack as well but it wouldn't suprise me. Dude really puts in the effort.

Seemed kinda strong, a bit stoned, nice chap 5.7 looked easy for him. Good to see such a famous climber enjoy the Choss.
