Hey everyone,

Wondering if anyone has ever done G-Money on Angels Landing. It goes at A2+ and is 8 pitches long. The topo says you need 15 birdbeaks, 15 knifeblades, 18 lost arrows and 7 angles. I have never done a nailing route, but that seems like a lot of iron for a 8 pitch A2. If anyone can give some first hand info. it would be greatly appriecated.

Thank you,

Garrett

If you've never done a nailing route, please don't start on sandstone...

Hay Garret,
When were you planning on working on the route? I've got some pins, but not near anough as your describing. Drop me a line before you head out if your looking for a partner. I'd like to see if it will go clean yet. If not I'm all for positive pitoning.
Today marks day 4 after coming down from Spaceshot here in Zion. I'm not real excited to get back on a trade route. I'm also not real excited about the "rediculously soft rock" in the description.
Kevin

Kevin,

Anytime between Oct. 14th - Oct. 19th or Oct. 28th - Oct. 30th would work for me. I live in saint george so its only a 40 minute drive so if those dates don't work anytime else would be fine. I would definitely welcome a partner.

I will be heading up Lunar X this weekend (Oct 1-3) BURR!, then I'm off to Idaho for some peak bagging with family the next weekend. Who knows if I will make it to the weekend after that.
I've done some homework on G money...
Only RC.com has the beta. She looks steep fo sho.
Tomorrow I will be at the backcountry desk and look at the big book of routes.

Kevin,

Sounds good. Tell me how Lunar X goes. I'm also interested in that one as well as sheer lunancy. I just fixed the first three pitches of spaceshot today and am heading back tomorrow to climb the head wall. That 5.7 chimney was fun on the second pitch.
