Your timing is perfect, Jef.

Isn't there a great line you've got your eye on 'round the corner from Shock Collar, with trees in the way?
Seems like your head is on right with thoughts of working around the trees, not against them.

100 ft, no cleaning necessary, a couple 5.10 cruxes with a boulder problem finish.
It would be super popular if it didn't involve a hike.

Wow! Drljefe that line looks amazing! Where is that? If you don't want to say where it is, that is totally cool.

Not so recent, but did a river trip down the Grand in Sept.

Fully appreciated all of it. Some good DWS. Stared at rock walls for 250+ miles.

So what was it? I thought those seldom if ever repeated mid-5.13 lines at Paradise Forks were the hardest-- I'd be interested to hear the details.

Thanks! Not surprised it's at the Waterfall, the "easy" routes there are hard 5.10!

edit: I also rechecked the Forks, it looks like the hardest there is the Equalizer at ".13-", with several others checking in at mid 5.12.
