I also have a sneaking suspicion that "Amazon Slabs" next to Echelon (and partly climbed by the present Ultimate Everything) was named after a famous rainforest rather than a woman warrior.

And so I would expect a modern route called "Carmanah Crags" to be one I would stay far away from.

Unless the turf was frozen that is.

Last I looked the bolts may need a replacement, quite rusty. Would you sanction such a thing Perry? Looks like a really cool line. BK boasted about toproping after chief cruised it awhile back when I asked about it but that's all the stories I've heard :-)

Edit- Brownie informs me thru offline communications that it has been recleaned & that he fell on the bolts so they must be ok.

Invertigo has one of the weirdest moves I've ever seen. If I ever went back to it, I'd wear some kind of kevlar armor on the back of my calf.

Ahh good morning Bruce. My use of the adjective "boasting" was only in efforts to get u to pipe up cuz I recall you saying something about LTTH. Finally getting the hang of this trolling thing:-0

What's invertigo? I haven't heard of that one but it sounds wyde, just from the name.

Speaking of Amazon Slabs, there is this other slab to the right of it which appears as a white-space-on-the guidebook maps.




People have been up there. Or down there?

Andy that slab is a climb left of and iirc accessed from Teddy Bears Picnic.

Sounds right. There are anchors up in the final cleft of the Prow. Climbs in the vicinity would be best accessed by rap in as suggested for Teddy Bears Picnic. That anchor in my photo is probably arranged that way for rapping rather than sport. But no published routes that I know of despite a good-looking face. The upper part of the face may not have a good line?

All the tube topos are gone from Area 44 :'(

Also a huge thank you to the guys that built that place. The whole thing feels like a massive passion project and you can feel the love ooze from the walls. I love it :D

You're right - thought that Unbearable was on that face but it's much closer to the corner.

That said, I remember exploration of that wall even back in the late 90s, surprised nothing has come to fruition yet. The cleaned features look to go all the way up?

There looks to me to be a good line of vertical features for the first 2/3s, then it gets steeper and looks problematic, from a distance, that is.
