I'm not sure if this is fake, however I have always thought that this thing would fall sooner than later. The overhang at the top was spooky.

Anybody got real verification of this?

I'm calling BS. Super easy to clone stamp the summit boogieboard out of that pic.

Think I'll head out there with me dag and go see for myself. I'll be back with pics in a couple hours.

edit: It did rain like a mofo out here all night and in Moab, so maybe??

That would make a cool coffee table.


Edit: Susan, that would be one muddy hike right now.

It's a fun boulder problem. Never committed to the last moves though, that would be scary ropeless.

A Mormon Boy Scout leader must've pushed it over.

Not if you ask the now banned Burchey part 1 thru 9.

Jeremy is climbing hard and doesn't miss us at all apparently.....

Cool, crushing seems in his blood.

Along with red dust and cheap beer. Woo Hoo!

This thread is about Jeremy's mom? Lol!

It would be interesting to know the truth of the -ahem- original post.

Does anyone have a pic of Jeremy's mom?

I'm just asking because I've only seen her from behind, so don't know what her face looks like.

Yep, folks, sad to say that it's true. E.T. has finally phoned home. These are only phone photos so pardon the poor quality.

Looks like it broke off at the base of the "neck". Must have been spectacular to see. The debris blasted that boulder sitting beneath the base ledge (you can see it in the photo Susan posted above) about 20 or 30 feet. Took out a juniper, too...

I searched the rubble for a bit to try and find the pin (wasn't it a baby angle at the break?) or any other fixed gear but couldn't see anything. I only searched for about 15 minutes, though, because my dog was getting too hot and wanted to bail.



Pouring one out for a fallen homie. RIP COBRA
