My favorite place on earth.....so far

Was just there for a short trip. Had a great time. Was way to short. Always to short. Just when you start to feel good, it's time to go

Just missed the sushi-fest...what a tease

I wanna be there.


Help....pictures, stories, discussion...anything related

Identity check..

Only bad thing about this line is that a Rick James song keeps going through my head anytime I'm even near it or see it. Can't help singing it on lead lol.

Click this video at your own peril.. it may destroy your ability to ever enjoy the classic climb pictured below (did not want to embed this one lol)

Wow Supercrack has changed. The edges used to be really defined almost sharp. They look all rounded and chipped now. In autumn 76 I was in the Moab area with Greg Davis. We bumped into Jimmy Dunn and maybe Billy Westbay, can't remember who was with him for certain. Anyway they had just done Supercrack and told us of this unbelievalble crack that looked like an architect designed it because it was perfect. I think they heard about it from Ed Webster or Earl Wiggins. So we went down to IC and had a look. Sure enough crack perfection. We had to go back to Moab to borrow some more #9 and #10 hexes, we did'nt have enough pro to do it. We had NO cams, did not trust them yet. Then we went back and did it. We flipped for the lead and I won the first pitch. Second pitch was fun too. We thought there was no move harder than 5.9 but every move was 5.9. The hardest part was hanging on to place the hexes and getting them to cam in that parallel perfection. Fortunately we did not have to test the pro. After that we became IC regulars. Climbed there alot in spring 77 and 78. No body around much. We only lived about 4 hrs away and would go down mid winter sometimes.

In many pictures, the insides of those cracks seem to be eroding away.
