TR at Woodson? Ahahaha! "Where a fifteen foot fall could be fatal" I'm sure I once heard appropriately said.

Yep, there's that Firefly...never did get that thing...amongst many others...*sigh*

Crazy beautiful pictures....i need to get back in shape and join you guys...dang it Jim!


Did I ever meet either of you, Ryan or Jason?

That Manuels Horror isn't straight forward....takes a bit to figure the sequence.

Oh, of you're learning crack technique, tape up for this one...

...just like Hamburger Crack, only more hamburger and more crack.

Leading Jaws? You're right, not recommended, unless a photographer asks you to, even then, kinda silly:

The crux are the rattly jams right after that cam. If I would have fallen it would have kept me from hitting the deck, although nobody plans on falling if they're third classing it. Yes, I was asked to place gear for the camera, although nothing came from that photo sesh...never saw the results.

Off the couch.
so did he send it? off the couch, even Micronut cud get that far on SB, lol! that is just before it gets burly (only about 5.8, or so, to that point)

...I wanted to lead Robbins or something similar.
go for the on sight solo, bro (seriously)! solid hands all the way. crux is a few feet from the top. actually, crux is down climbing it solo. dude, its tradition, live up to it.

btw, great pics, etc. TFPU!!!

Technicallly, the crux is the start, off the ground, but psychologically, while solo,
the top for sure! The downclimb? Twice as hard, lol!

Never seen this perspective before...pretty cool!


Edit: correction... I HAVE seen this perspective before, when I was pulling a climbing slipper out of the top of the crack. I can't recall what it was there for...???

Haha, I'm not sure about the Robbins solo.

Up, probably be okay.

Down...call the bambalance. I'll make sure to get video if I try the downclimb, you guys deserve a good laugh.

Dude, Baby Robbins is a cruise both up and down. I onsight soloed that thing without a thought at the WoodsonFest a few years back.

Just saying, it's pretty easy.
