I hope it's a troll.

Would be really good.

Pics would make a better troll though .

Arrrgh! I thought it was the real Madbolter. It was in fact the MadboIter1. Still, I think the rating by the FAs is a bit silly, don't you?

A-6 is a myth. And A-6+ must be in the land of unicorns and fairies.
Anything above A-3 is frightening.

Found this on one site. I think it is succinct and to the point:
"C6 or A6 does not exist, since the aid climbing scale was developed as discrete scale that is not open ended. Also, since C5 implies the death of both climber and belayer, a rating of C6 could not cause an increase in severity."

[quote]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grade_(climbing)#Aid_climbing[/quote]

Haven't we gone down this road of rating aid above A-5 and I think there was some discussion as to whether A-5 was even attainable. I wouldn't know as I am not stupid enough to try aid at that level. Like I said A-3 is red lining for me.

Yeah, it sounds lame so far, but...


Finish the route first, then talk sh#t about it. If you bail from it talking sh#t about it is lame.

Nate,

We don't know each other so pardon my French...you have no f*#king idea what you are talking about.

I would bail and go do a new route or a GOOD ROUTE.

Trenched heads in the Fishers is f*#king HOMO.

What a joke...f*#king as#@&%es.

It's all greek to me... trenched heads, etc.

But if Jeremy says it's lame(I choose to use the word "lame") I believe him, being a mud guy and all.

I read the Infestada link, interesting stuff...

A6? Not dead but super dead?

Aid climbers are already creepy enough... on mud?
íNo gracias!

Whassuuuup Jeremy!

Okay, finally some pics of the line of holes. See the latest post on the blog. Not great quality... just captures from my helmet cam. But they are clear enough to tell the tale. Once I get to the second anchor, I can rap and clean this pile. Then I'll whip out my Canon and do the job right. Then you'll see pics of trenched heads right next to perfectly good conventional gear, and there will be pics of euro-bashies right next to bombproof peckers.

Regarding "dissing on a route before completing it," I'm not "dissing" but merely reporting what I'm finding as I go (such are the wonders of modern technology, lol). You don't have to drink a whole gallon of milk to detect that it's sour. And what I'm finding so far is an entirely, completely manufactured route (even more so than "necessary"), done in abysmal style, wildly over-rated, and with no thought given to producing a sustainable/repeatable route. The "hardest" sections are perhaps A3, and even given a hook anchor (which is entirely contrived just to produce a rating), with the 18-inch spread on the bashies (some of which could not even be removed they are so bombproof), there is just no way that the FA team was looking at pulling the whole house down. "Harder than Intifada" not!

We all know that A6 is a mythical rating, but this route gets nowhere close to it! I've already done the "crux" of the route (according to the topo), and there's nothing proud here at all. This is nothing but a line of trenched heads and (mostly) bashie holes drilled into blankness.

Jeremy posted pics from the FA, which shows the same thing my pics show (and will show better when I clean the first two pitches).

Regardless of whether I continue, whether the thing ever gets a complete SA, or whether mud just obscures the whole mess over time, the myth of "possibly the world's hardest aid route" is already debunked. This thing didn't even knock on the door of A4, must less A5, and much, much less A6 (+).

I'll take a day off and then continue on. Much better pics to follow.

Jeremy, quit tempting me to bail, doggone it! :-)

Well, to bed. Wow, that shower was amazing. The first five minutes flow red. It's so hilarious... and felt so good after a week.

Look closely at the first photo.

There is a bolt that the blue lead line is tied into with a figure 8. 2 more down to the left at approx 8-o-clock. 2 more directly below the hook on the far right.

"Hook Anchor" is a hoax
