Tired old man returns to SP after at least 20 years only to find global gravity has increased to the degree that old easy problems are now impossible even while wearing newly resold Fires... sad.

This increase of global gravity is a series problem that NO one seem interested in taking seriously.

Even with this these young climbers, not having enough experience to no any better, keep climbing.

Paul..... some things have changed, some not so much, the pull of the gravity, as you just found out, varies.

Looks like you were in the sun.

Did you like the new painting on B1?

Last Tuesday was really a hi energy day!

Da Meat was out, he can still crush it, with the best of them young guns.

The new couple: Steve and Ashley - from Grand Rapids .... they took right to the place. I didn't know you could be that good and come from a flatland state.

Welcome you two.

I'm not sure it was ever that easy.....at least one handed. ;>)

Well boys...I'll see your sorry butts in a week or two. Taking some time off currently before I start another training cycle. Been getting out too...did south face Washington column and west face leaning tower a few weeks ago and am headed up to do routes on Whitney/Russel this weekend. Cheers!

Tones,
Great shot. I haven't seen Grapes of Wrath in so long that I never realized they shot parts of it near Stoney.

The bolts were just all over the place. You needed like 50 ft of webbing to equalize them. And the one in between the star drives was in pretty crooked and already a little rusty. Also it was just in a weird spot right in between the 2. The star drives pulled out really easy. I also left some quick links on the anchor so you can rap off because every time l go there, someone leaves some tat. I left the one bolt that's to the left and at the lip for the other route.

I did the little cracks to the right of freeway. But not the 5.11 to the left. But I left the bolt at the lip for that one. The old 1/4s were in a good spot, but the other new bolts were really weird.

I left the one in the right side. You can see the 2 old and 1 new in the middle, I pulled all 3 of those. And the random bolt all the way in the back by my backpack got pulled. I put 2 new ones near the crack to the right.

PS if anyone thinks it sucks or I messed it up, I'll go fix it. But to me, it's a cleaner easier set up. Also I'm down to throw in some more SS bolts if anyone knows of any that need replacing.

Hey All,

My daughter lost one of her brand new La Sportiva Tarantulace size five shoes about 10 days ago in the back area somewhere around Koda's Corner. Somehow it must have fallen out of my crash pad when leaving, so we didn't notice until just a few days ago when we went climbing again. If anyone happened to pick it up, please e-mail me at PhillVanDyke@gmail.com. Much appreciated!
