Thanks thekid. Pan Wall is a little over my head at the moment. Lost at Sea would be great to combine with an aid route on the Grand Wall. Has it still not seen a 2nd ascent?

Yeah, Lost At Sea is totally a practice nailing route. Nice one Luke.

Kieran, did you finish your aid route yet?

RyanD. Our trip was only 2 years ago. I don't think there were bouldering mats BITD. It wasn't all darkside--we did some roped climbing too.:)

MH2. Yes, same rock, opp side. Climbing that would more likely result in boulder crushes climber, instead of the other way around! Interesting that it is caused by the wind, but obvious now that you pointed it out. The wind blows like crazy at night, and the bigger, heavier pieces of gravel etc would erode the base, while the lighter stuff would barely effect the higher sections. You sometimes see the same thing with small sea stacks, which are eroded by sand and waves.

BM. By 'deaf ears' I meant that RyanD was unlikely to make any converts among the OGs who visit this thread. You know who you are!!!:) :) :)

There should be a special 'G' scale for gymnasts:

G0=V2
G1=V5
G2=V8 etc.

Relic, that photo has to be at the Buttermilks. V4 traverse, forgot the name ? When we were there some attituude filled locals climbed it, and grunted over expressively, and too loud on ever move. I figured I should have my own macho signature grunts, so at ever move I yelled “COCK” at the top of my voice.

I think the dudes would have kicked the sh#t out of me except that I was too old and climbing with three really cute young gals.

Y'know my wingspan duzzn't even reach to Big Mike's crown. Sheesh. Then again I can scratch my ear with my toe so that's also a cheat.

Anything about those skulls found ? I suspect plastic movie props that somebody didn't wanna investigate tooooooooooo thoroughly.........

Big Mike, when you guys were join to Bishop all i wanted was to see a pic of you on that thing! I thought it would be the craziest buttdragger for you but it's actually not bad by the looks of that shot. Thanks Relic. Rolfr is right tho, there's not 10 routes in NA that see the grunting & tantrums that ironman does. Best route in the milks if u ask me is to walk up behind ironman & climb the crack up to the huecos up to the ridge to the final flake all the way to the summit of the mini mountain that overlooks the peabodies, it's like a little 4 pitch scramble-classic!

Tami, if you can scratch your ear with your toe you would probably have a good time bouldering :-) just need to find the problems that are fun for you! Careful though you could become fully corrupted.....

Yup. I can see it now. "Tami Knight, sends v12 onsight and sets new female age record." ;)

Lol! I bet she could! ;)

Butt dragging is a bummer for sure. Thank god for the pad posse or my butt woulda been mega sore the next day. That first shot is a total setup. Pretty sure i never even got that far ;)

Quit being such a wet blanket MH2! Rolf is probably all sunburned and dehydrated down there. We got all natural remedy for that up here, just stand outside all day!

Cool dog! Haha Relic, that's more like it, Mikes arms are the same height as the holds!
