Gumby, I've seen one tick in twenty years at the Fords. Lower down I've seen plenty. Dank Oh yeah have fun and don't let your legs get too skinny. ;)

Heh Ron. do you know of the snake den at the base of the formation directly below The Books? Rife with snakes in the late spring saw @30 of the bastards. When I hear a rattle I perform no hands ariels as a means of escape. Off small cliff over giant stumps and bushes, encoded fear I guess just can't help myself. Dank

Chim,, that is funny! I did the very same thing on lakeview hill once. Sat down at a small crag to put my shoes on and the place lit up with rattles! I moved laterally about 100 feet in like six LEAPS LMAO! I had sat down right in front of a snake ball... Took an hour for the hair on my neck to settle down..;-) Nice skull Gumby!

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.

Sorry to hear about your injury. Heal up soon. Glad you enjoyed the route Bomz. There's a few more four pitch routes that rival the HOG, in the immediate e area. Topographic Oceans is particularly stellar albeit the second pitch is a bit grainy. Dank

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.
