5 out of 5 stars The cracks won't take much gear. The route was originally lead on two bolts, one pin (stole by some wanker) and a couple pieces of gear (the seemingly gear eating cracks in the photo won't take any) but was retroed by the F.A. because for one the gear sucked, two what gear you get goes into the crux holds, and three the gear was eating at the sandstone. On a lighter note Whiskey is a strong contender for best route in the state. A must do if you're capable.

I think if he tweeked his prep a bit it could be 13+/14- :)

It's understandable that you put the grade with a route photo. Someone says, "WOW, what a killer line! I wonder if I could do it." and then they say, "Oh it's 5. blah, blah, blah, I'll have to try it when I go to Crag So and Such. " or "Damn! I'll have to be in better shape before I can try that route.". The "13's" part just seems out of context. Route grade doesn't matter without the route. It just sounds like needless spray, which many people like to pick on. Don't take it personally, I didn't mean to offend. It's not you or your picture I was poking fun at. It was aimed at what seemed to me as needless spray.

4 out of 5 stars There are a few jams here and there. The crack leans more than it shows, so in many places it's easier to grab the lip than to use the offsize jams. It's also steeper than it looks. The wall overhangs about 6 feet in 55 or 60.

4 out of 5 stars Like, I have a big set of small nuts? I have big nuts too. As for the really big nuts, they are aren't as useful as they seem.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Chopping does more damage to the rock than leaving them. The route is far from over bolted and would be a waste of precious climbable rock if it wasn't bolted. The bolts didn't detract from the gear lead for me one bit. If you don't like em don't clip em.

5 out of 5 stars Cool pic, I kinda wish I would have went back to the Hills with all of you. It rained all day at the Tower.

4 out of 5 stars You need to stop posting all these great pictures from your day in the Needles, I'm kicking myself for not going with.

It was dry when we were there. The top out is a bit spooky. It's a great problem other than the bad rock.

He must just look higher up than he really is, the water looks like it's far below.

3 out of 5 stars Hey, that was an onsight! Fun route, the picture doesn't show how steep it really is though.

4 out of 5 stars I really love that pic. You should crop out the hat and try to resize it so it isn't so grainy, then resubmit it.

The only thing more mean than making the obvious comments, is giving this photo a high enough rating that it can be on the front page for everyone to see, so they can write there own rude comments.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Not to be mean, but. Honestly Brent, who are you trying to fool with this pic? You are a much better photographer than this. Where are all your other photos? I thought it felt harder too.

4 out of 5 stars Nice shot Matt.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Stopped action, mad detemination on the climbers face, I love it! A photo like this makes me think,"Damn I wanna do that route", even though I've never even been to Maine. If the lighting was a little better and it was a touch clearer, it would be a super solid photo.

This photo seems to be getting mixed reviews. Some people really like it, and others not so much.

I resized and resubmitted this photo. I think this one is a little better quality.

3 out of 5 stars Interesting photo, but there seems to be something missing. Can't quite put my finger on it though.

You beat me. Fixing my femur topped out around $15,000. And it wasn't even climbing related. Though I do have a bigger piece of hardware, but not as much. I don't like this game, I keep losing.

4 out of 5 stars I second the yodel comment!

I wish I was on the road right now! I've been sorting through a lot of photos lately. This pic and the photo of "Lord of the Flies" are from this year.

This pic makes me laugh my ass off! The porstache really ties the pic together.

I'm pretty sure she has something well worth protecting under that helmet. To bad so many other people don't see it that way. Why does someone wearing a helmet make a picture bad? I wear a helmet a lot of the time. I've also not worn a helmet when I normally would, because it was for a professional photo shoot. Why? Because helmets are dorky, and who wants to buy a photo of some dork wearing a helmet? I happen to love this photo just the way it is.

View this Photo
Sorry, I couldn't help it. You look so hardcore I had to show the world! I was going to go back and edit the credits cause I forgot, but I'll leave it as is now. Besides, if you would have posted up to begin with I wouldn't have need to take the drastic measures I did!

You have pics of me looking :robert:. Though this one shows the route much better.

If he did the overhangng face opposite the river I thought it was 10+/11-.

I love that helmet. It may be the reason she is still alive.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yeah J, the start of Carol's Crack is straight above her head and like G said two cracks over where it leaves the pic. We actually climbed the 1st pitch of Oneway Sunset, then left into Cali. Dreaming. And up, up, up to the top. I'd actually been dreaming of trying this line since the time we met out there.

Getting good pics of this route is extremely difficult. The roof is so big it creates some heinous lighting conditions.

We have a pile of other pics but this one turned out the best of all the side shots. I just wanted to get one up on here that showed the whole route.

In that pic there is a cam near the lip. It was a dogging piece used for cleaning. The other is the tat anchor. This picture is from an earlier redpoint attempt.

No kidding. Nobody but the misinformed call it 12c.

Once you get past the exploding holds at the start it was pretty easy. I think I like the original photo without the blur a little better.

I hope you are going to write about what a bad idea that is since they need to be recessed.

They were doing that to keep the glue in the hole and the bolt in place on steep rock.

I did say it was S.Ontario. Isn't that enough? It is S.Ontario after all, we need to preserve what we have. That place is right next to the road and everyone already knows about it. Its has had access issues in the past which are straightened out for time being. No need to add fuel to the fire.

The ice on the left wasn't climbable. It barely touched down and would have just fallen apart. The rock wasn't that hard.

The bottom was really bad. I probably would have onsighted it except the holds kept falling off or exploding. Up higher I didn't find the rock as bad. It was a cool route otherwise.
