I'm only posting this so Carrie's friends can see it. I wouldn't dare sully the honor of ST with a TR of my First-Sister-in-a-Day attempt.

Click on the photo to see it, Carrie friends.

Apologies to the original Bad Asses for doing the above. :) If you read the TR you shall see, however, that I have a Bad Ass.

I heard a rumor that bolts were added to protect a "easier" varation on the 2nd pitch. Also, you have to question it the parties involved rapped in to rehearse the crux pitches. Is this then truley a valid ascent?
Before we praise the efforts of these climbers, we need clear proof that they actually climbed what they claim. I have a friend who was climbing where they were climbing, and he says that his other friend doesn't think that they climbed what their website says they did.
Furthermore, are they even who they claim to be? Is it not possible that they are involved in an elaborate troll? Are we fools for giving creadence to their writing and supposed accomplisments? Are we fools for being on this site in the first place, for climbing? yes.

I heard water and supplies were stashed at key bolts so that the party didn't have to haul.

Tough, with the short days and all...

After scoping the crux, I decided that it would be faster to jug rather than free it on toprope.

That picture is too righteous! I've been giggling uncontrollably now for at least a half hour.

Too bad Carrie didn't have some goldline for your epoch day. Hip belay would have been nice.

Be sure to post here, as well.

Great picture!

If i'd been drinking coffee when I first saw that photo, I'm pretty sure it would have ended up all over my computer...

Damn, that's funny.

Calling fiction here (maybe).




Well maybe her underwear is a different color in the front from the back. Or maybe for some reason she had to change her shorts.

Good eye, I wondered when someone was going to call me on that. Since the pants were already falling off, I figured the day would start getting warmer and removed thermals in the bushes pre-the proud event. :)

Also, Carrie denied the hip belay - I offered.
