Nice :) Been needing to go back there and try more routes, I've only done Yggdrasil (Red Dihedral) as a day hike, positive vibes looks great and so does Sun Spot. Hopefully in the next 4 months I don't get injured, should be good enough to try those routes!

Now that Donini has confessed his love for the evil pastime, I'll admit I'm a shameless bolt clipper, and I really like ultra light draws.

How the bolts were placed doesn't even cross my mind - how well they're placed is what's important.

It's a perfect compliment to the mind game of placing gear for protection - each makes the other better.

Well said Warbler.

Each has its own place.




TORK!!! WOOT! That really is one of the funnest climbs and formations I've been on.




gdavis,

"I've climbed with maybe a dozen or so people that talk sh#t about sport climbing but won't climb a move harder than 5.7 unless they have a piece clipped above their head..."

I don't think we've climbed together. How do you know me so well? heh

I'm going sport clipping tomorrow.
Another month and my shoulder should be healed up enough to go crack climbing.

Killer Pillar on Elephant rock has a few excellent sport routes and the view and exposure are outstanding.

No Gerry, that was a couple years ago. I think he's dealing with a knee problem right now, but haven't talked to him in a little while.

I went clipping up 4 of 9 pitches we did at NJC today.
My shoulder is healing nicely, and I, AM, getting my Physical Therapy.

Another month and I'll get back to some, GOOD OL, non clipping, climbing!

n00b sh#t...

bitd, if ya didn't have the balls to do something, ya waited until ya did. BUT, today, if it was my kid (or grandson) that was learning to climb, i would say "HELL YA..."! Using yer head, and keeping it safe, is SMART (imo). And I would now say FU to anyone that put somebody down for doing something as simple as ^ that. It's all about having fun. And no damage was done to the route/environment.
