decent shot, awesome, just fun route but 5.11a and fairly soft at that, not .11b.

And could someone tell me why the offwidth portion is given a .10 rating?

Awesome pic of what appears to be an awesome route...

where would someone find beta on it if someone was looking

needs a filter (a maybe a fuji film if its slides) or a bit of colorbalance (if its digital), the red's are a bit too strong

I AM IMPRESSED. We race those bies at work, and to do it with a crashpad, impressive

Gunksgoer...the crack you asked about is Rawhide... a super fun .10d ringlock to finders crack. Slimy but fun (but I am partial since I learned to climb cracks on this one.... on lead.....)

Second lead.... Awesome job!

Don't worry, eckov14 is just jealous since the last time he wore something like that to a bar some other guy was wearing the exact same thing and looked better then he did.

3 out of 5 stars Nice composition but man do I feel sorry for the guy seconding, having to take that cam out...

Naw, used to place two green cams before the transition, but not anymore, now I only place a red C3 at 15ft, a BD red at 20ft, a green cam jr before the transition and a red at the transition, a maroon cam jr about 5ft above that and a green cam jr protecting the top out. A yellow cam (2.0) can be placed between the green and the maroon to protect the slimy flare

I'd be screwed.... of the 5 or 6 ropes I have, nothing is over 9.7mm

Nice job as a first lead..... Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. And as for the critics, don't worry. you'll be outclimbing them in a year or so.....

as for first leads... everyone is different. Shell's fisrt lead, and first trad lead was a slimy 5.10b/c.... everyone is different.

Laurel, its in Haffner creek which is in British Columbia, about an hour outside of Canmore

This is an awesome shot!! The views with the city behind were interesting.

Nice photo, with the perspective of the thin fingers Its such a fun lead (except the first move where your pinkie goes numb).

looks like its great fun... what does it go at

Nice composition and colors

That looks like a fun, awesome little crack

absolutely beautiful. The color is gorgous

would like to see this in a higher res- could be a really nice picture

You should have seen it about 4 weeks earlier- at that tiome both the falls in Gold and Silver canyons were just raging (by Az standards)

The scale gets lost but what you see is the whole thing (and it is really 10-12 decent pitches long). The direct start is in the right facing dihedral shown on the lower left side of the face in the middle of the talus

That JUST went onto my ticklist for IC

nice shot. That is just such a FUN route

I agree with the contrast in the image

Nice photo.... but why would anyone in the plane really care what we do below them.

I like the use of B&W and short depth of field.

I'd have like to see the move to get to that stem.

And I'm sure the onsies will become a rage among climbers again (or atleast the diapers will)

That is an amazing photo (and painful). Where on the Optimator is it, not seeing it in Bloom's 1 or 2.

Now get with the program. You need a dark blue rope also (would requiring that it be from Bluewater be going too far?) This faded blue just won't due.

Given the expression on their face,.....going to be one hell of a climber

slightly less then vertical. Its probably the best line at the Grotto, and I always remember it being 5.10d and not 5.11a (when did that happen?).

and how do you rip gear on Ruby's. I know one guy who's spring on the cam was jammed with dirt (which I can understand) but this thing is as G as it gets.

Looks beautiful. Whats the route to the right going through the roof?
