I think that route is Begoon Offenbacher? They all look similar, but I think Fathom Direct comes in from the left to join this route. Great route whichever it is.

Oops...corrected...I got Long's peak on my mind...I kept calling "Wallstreet" on Grand Teton "Broadway" also.

Buissonier? I have a picture in almost that same spot. Great climb.

4 out of 5 stars There are very few top-roping pictures where the top-rope doesn't detract from the picture. This is one of them. I think the top-rope actually contributes to this photo.

She looks like she's having a great time, maybe jamming is not the most efficient way to climb this crack (or not HER most efficient way), and give me a F'ing break about the pro...typical armchair climbers...Good picture and looks like a fantastic climb and climber.

I watched my partner lead this and he started with his back on one wall and at the bolt flipped so he faced the other way. It looked terribly awkward to make the transition, but when I followed it I did the same and it felt pretty good. I thought this was the easiest of the chimney sections. I thought the previous "pitch" (if counting 4) was the most difficult.

Gotcha...yes, I thought that was a pretty hard transition too. The chimneys worked me enough that we stopped at all four belays and didn't link any of them. This also allowed us to easily haul our small pack.

Is this route in the old Kelley guide book?

A 60 gets you down just fine. There used to be two rap stations very close to each other in this spot. When I have used this rappel, I have wondered if there any routes on the wall you rap down. I'll have to look into that. There is a 5.7 across the rap gully that has only been done a few times. Not sure of the name, but I did it after the (presumed) FA.

I saw tit in my old Kelly book, but there is not topo or description. Is this climber's right from the amphitheater? Probably not very far from the amphitheater either? Any other landmarks or beta you can give me...I'd like to check this route out.

Great picture and formation. It'd be a 5-star picture if the climber(s) had on brighter clothing.

The first pitch of RDW is pretty short, and has more tightly spaced bolts, so if you hit anchors pretty quick and could get back to the tree ledge with one rope, then it was RDW. Mercuries is a little easier, but the bottom pitch is longer. Love Stone Mountain!

Let me guess Chase...you took the picture?

4 out of 5 stars love it.

4 out of 5 stars NIce picture. Would definitely benefit from a brighter shirt...but I'm sure camera-friendly fashion was not the first thing on your mind that day! And thanks for getting the Barbie doll off the front page.
