Hey, John: We had a MASSIVE haul bag filled with beer that we wanted at the belay! Seriously. No? The rap was listed at 100 ft. and we were climbing on a 60 meter line, so....as Locker so eloquently put it, stayin' alive!
@Todd: How long did it take you to put in each bolt? I'm getting blisters on my hands just thinking about it.
I agree with Todd Gordon that it is nice to have a positive vibed thread.
Cool pics...classic Locker.
I too have been to the Mongolia area in JTree. Had just purchased a pair of Madrocks on the corner by the Coyote Cafe. My fave La Sportiva foci were on their last leg and blew out after my first route at Mongolia. I donned the Madrocks and set off on lead number two...scariest Ive had in a while.
I want to go back with my good shoes and climb like a possessed mad man.
