Oh man, nice. A little bump from 2008.

Thx again Roger!

This is my ass out there somewhere near where you were. I may be above Coonyard or off Goodrich Pinnacle heading for the Oasis.

I am not sure where this was taken, but it just goes to show you that for the most part, we just didn't use many bolts up there. 1/4 inch was fine and welcome, even when they were 10-15 years old.

I hope you leave it as sporty as it was. Part of the Apron's education was learning to do without.

Your photo looks like Flakey Foont, just right of the first 5.9 pitch of Regular Mouth.
You can see Perhaps up and left of you.

We replace original bolts only. Runouts stay as is.

My book says I did Flaky Foont 9-25-75 with a guy named Mike. 5.9-two pitches. I thought it was hard for a 5.9. Somewhere to the left of Goodrich...

So that could be it.

I just looked it up on RC. Listed there as a 5.10c toprope pitch. And that its only 55 feet. With a tree anchor. I don't see no tree.

What happened to THAT climb? I NEVER made 55 feet into two pitches. So maybe that is NOT it? Or is it that is FOS?


I always thought I was a pretty average climber in the 70's. We were stout.

I went back on and looked again.
Now I get it, On the Flaky Foont is in Billings Montana...

"never mind".

Flakey Foot, I remember looking at that. First bolt you could see with a good pair if 10x25s. Right next to Slamdance, IIRC...
