Alexey, do you need an oxygen mask being so high in the stratosphere of climbing these days? Awesome job!

I always said this ST site is amazing source of climbing info. I climbed a lot of routes in the Valley only after I've heard about them on ST. Like Windfall at Widow's Tear area, another Kevin Worrall FFA. I remember somewhere on ST Tarbuster post some photos of Windfall, and The Warbler chime on this tread - that this is one of best routes he ever put on. In fact it is great climb, and I now regret that I did not compile TR at time I just climbed it. We probably missed another First accent story from Kevin.

What a great TR Alexey. I had alot of fun on both Astroman and Plumb Line.

I've climbed alot of so called "classic" routes and Astroman is by far one of the absolute best as far as quality and variety of climbing goes.

Plumb Line was one of those hidden gems you come across every so often. A good, clean, solid full pitch of OW. Not one of those short wannabe pitches like Twilight Zone and Steppin out. Then to top it off you get a full pitch of off hands in a dihedral and another chimney which reminded me of a shorter version of Fat Merchants Crack (sugarloaf). About the same difficulty too... solid .10b.

Put Plumb Line down on your Valley Hardman Offwidth Circuit list boys. It deserves to be there.

Heres some photos of Alexey on Astroman to feed your eyes and perk up your day.

I had lots of fun on these routes Alexey. Here's to solid partners on solid routes!
