Nice, Russ. I REALLY want to do some of those longer routes at Toecheese.

Any bad runouts on Ides?

I thought this one was longer... hmmm..

Mouse over the "i" in the upper right corner of the frame for info on each slide.

Any bad runouts on Ides?
I don't remember any, but I don't think the last two pitches had any pro at all, or maybe one nut between two plates or something. So yeah, no runouts over about 130ft.

Nice slideshow man, the rock looks great there, what's it like? It looks like a best of JT/Alabama hills/little Egypt combo?

Only WAYYYY Better! True Granite, not Quartz Monzonite. The rock, views, routes and overall feel of the place is spectacular!

Mussy, buy some new socks and start packing the Skamper™, I see Cochise in our winter travels!

Cool. Nice shot of Beeline. FYI, the routes around the corner to the right of Beeline are good. Dunno names or ratings (felt mid to hard .10ish??) but they are fun.

Mr Walling has never struck me as being greatly in need of our validation
but, since he insists, I will concur that the pictures are entertaining,
high quality, and perspiring.

I wonder how he feels about the little LED's in his camera.
