Very Cool!

Rock fall potential there very high.
It's the one place i've almost been killed twice.
Huge t.v. sized boulder flew by my head, and a rock the size of a bowling ball almost took myself and a client out years ago.

Won't be going back...glad you were successful and safe!


Awesome.

Zander told me about your aversion to the place Jobee, definitely a worry. Even sitting underneath The Surprise in the evening dusk there was stuff raining down from the last climbers of the day. I was looking for a place to sit and spied a fresh rock scar on a nice flat rock... not there!

Getting the three done right away, Munginella, Commitment and The Surprise greatly reduces exposure to rocks kicked down by other climbers. But still a risk, no doubt. And even on Hanging Teeth one of the parties on The Caverens provided a constant stream of pebbles, rocks and heavy vegetation, without calling a warning (so I guess they were not aware that they were knocking this stuff off).

There was a bad accident there actually reported here 6 years ago
