According to Breedlove's old Livesey guide, this whole rig is like 5.6+. Good go anyways!

More like 5.6++.*

Anyway SS is harder now because stuff that you used to be able to climb has fallen off.

Have you done that route recently Ryan? For me, it was probably 1974 or 75. None of the climbing seemed particularly hard (then) but I was tired in those upper chimneys.

* (Livesey's ratings are not reliable. Like many visitors to the Valley, he fell into the trap of thinking that his personal ratings were more important than the consensus rating.)

Hey, where did this thing come from?

Hey donini,
My list this year was going to be LAC again, Basketcase and My Favorite Things. We'll see how it goes, oh yeah!

Salathe was 51 on the FA, and Steck did it again when he was 74 (I think I got that data right), time for me to do some wide training...
