Duz anybody do that slab above all that crap? The one called "Ali booto"???? THere were three garbage bolts on it BITD. I know c'os I placed 'em :-)


I rebolted your old route about ten or twelve years ago Tami. It's still pretty rare to see anyone on it, but I like the perversity of slab. There's actually a new anchor that's sprung up at the base of it to service the low-fifth-class cracks below that lead up to the slab. Kinda weird, but it gets traffic. Neat and Cool is very heavily used by those of us with little rug-munchers.

I was thinking of adding another bolt to that anchor just to the left of it so the rope would run better, instead of over that edge. I guess i should contact the smoke bluff committee?

I think we're talking about different anchors Mike. The route Ali Bhutto is the leftmost one on the upper slab. You climb the easy corner cracks on the lefthand low angle slab to get to it. I think you might be referring to the anchor on top of the three short cracks called Clean Starts.

If that anchor puts the rope over a nasty edge, you don't need anyone's permission to correct the problem.

Yeah Mike, the right stuff is the shortened version of the now obscure- the wrong stuff which starts on the challenger, used to be able to place an optional nut in the middle of right stuff but there was a new bolt there yesterday.


What's that crack Luke's on? The one right of alley bhutoe, don't know the name but I like that photo, cool clouds!

Did u name Ali Butto Tami? What's that about? It's a funny name.
