Going UP and DOWN The Prow: Success and Failure
Friday July 30, 2010 4:36pm
I tried for a while to convert my photos to work on Supertopo and its taking forever, so instead I'll post a link to my trip report with pictures on RC.com. Otherwise, its buried in the threads.

That was an awesome TR! I was like "go go go, wondering when you were gonna bail (because of the title),". Then whaM! You got jacked up. You handled it well. HEAL UP!

Best wishes recovery on your injury, I've been sidelined all summer with a bad wheel.... you can still hangboard (possibly)!

I've done that route a couple times, I remember that little funky section even though it was eons ago!

Whoa, bro, way to tough it out.

The climbing above Tapir is tricky and has been scoring some falls lately. I hucked off the damn thing last time up. Take care up there...


Also, no real need to bounce on (weight/unweight) cams to "test" them in solid rock. Doing that gives the cam the opportunity to shift into an undesirable position.
