Great TR! Thanks for sharing.

Also, if Jeff is the "sport climber" in the group that would make me the indoor plastic puller...who wears lycra...and only own slippers...and cross trains with roller blades.

Nice work!

Always wanted to do it but never got around to it. Seems like a good mid-summer route.

I hear the topo for it is bogus.

Peace

Karl, the topo is fine, just draw in a few pins and a bolt on the left P6 anchor.

Naw Walter, we miss you there! Life was so cheery with you in the office!

Speaking of the man in charge, gotta run.

Walleye,

We might need you to come out of exile. Swilliam P. Russell is planning a coup
at YMS, and we sure as hell couldn't have him running the show, not all of
us like Old E that much. Couldn't be Jo-nan W. either as some of the crew is allergic
to cats. It could be me, but that would mean we'd all be at the chapel for Sunday services. You're the most logical choice mate! Better start tuning up you're people skills for SHOWTIME !!!!!!

Not anymore, as we left the pins we hammered in. Lost arrow leaving the belay on the crux pitch. A knife blade that is part of the anchor on the end of that pitch, and I think a baby angle or something on the next. Should be good to go now.

Edit: Oh ya, maybe a couple blades or small arrows or something on the 2nd. pitch would safen' it up a bit if I remember.

Jeff, Doug and Dave - thanks for all the cool photos, beta, and upgrade on the fixed pins! I'm psyched to get on it this summer.

Great TR! Man, that thing looks a bit old school. Sure doesn't look like it has been done in a while. How about it....anyone else do this in the past five years? Post up!

How long does it have to go between ascents before it falls into the obscurity category?

I think your TR has generated some interest...I'll bet it gets a few more ticks during the hot days to come. Might have a go at it when I'm up there this fall.

I had a false start in the vicinity this past summer. We needed to get up earlier and budget more time for getting lost/downclimbing than we had, so we didn't try again. Maybe next year.
