Yeah i know! He said he downclimbed the crux like 5 times before he got the sequence right!


Another hint....

Did some one say bolt ladder to no where?

I get 256 bat holes per battery out of this sucker. That there monolith is gonna look like Swiss cheese in no time.

I'm also renting it for $85/day+deposit... If anyone's interested.

Somewhere, somehow there is someone with an oversensitive ethical dilemma that just had a moment(at least) of anguish. I'm not sure why but I am sure it deserves a chuckle. Damn funny.

We gotta go put a bolt ladder in at chek & write "10b" at the base in chalk before the long weekend, then we can go back Tuesday & collect all the quickdraws.

Seriously tho, that drill looks sweet, & since my dog walking rate is only $170 per walk & $42.50 per feeding I should have a good 5 days on the tab after this weekend so long as Yula doesn't take a poo, those are $100 a piece.

Edit- Wayno, I'm the one u gotta worry "aboat" :-)

Dave was telling me about those things. Just how many of those things did he put in? Sounds like a worthy project, anyway.

Tons. I gotta find some candidates and talk to Robin to see if he's cool with it.

Are we back on staples again??!

I am pretty sure RB doesn't like anyone chopping his Jingus gear so I wouldn't even ask Mike. Just do it like everyone else does. What r u gonna say to him that he won't be insulted by? This guy has possibly bolted more pitches than anyone in North America so I don't think he is interested in any negative feedback on his methods at this point, although he is a really nice dude to chat with, he is convinced that he is in the right with his tactics. Another thing to remember is that 80% of RB staple routes are zero star ledgy slabs or squeeze jobs between cracks, do u want to waste ur $$$ on replacing hardware on routes that will probably get eaten by moss within the next year or 2 & will never be climbed again??

I think the staple count is pretty low, I haven't seen them for awhile except a few in the bluffs.

A better proj may be, as u said, changing some of his garbage rap stations, which are everywhere. The entire Squaw/Klootch buttress is covered in em as well as some apron routes & the malamute.

Edit- I'd be happy to help with replacements, just let me know.
