My guidebook (Mark Van Horn, 1990) calls it a .10d, but our general consensus was that it was definitely .11 something.
Go on a weekday to avoid crowds. One wkend, on a different route, I had some kids trying to pee and spit down the rock while I was clipped into the anchors prepping to lower. Whoever said all kids are 'cute' would've changed their minds that day.
If you ever pass through Camp Snoopy in Qatar, there're some fantastic hand/finger cracks in between the jersey barriers at the airfield.
Is this the big rock formation just west of Khandahar. Don't recall if it was before or after the bridge...If not, where's it at?
Good to see things are settled down enough there now to enjoy the climbing. Be sure to send me a copy of the guidebook before my next trip :)
As for a rating: 5.Sweet Pow.
Fortunately, we got there ehn we did because it was fairly crusty by the next day.
judging by the blood rushing to his head and the dangling chalk bag n draws, is he dangling upside down??
Didn't build it, it was there, we just rapped off it. Lots of those around the S. Platte. That was before we knew the triangles were dangerous. Now I replace lousy anchors when I see them.
Great pic, but where does the do end and the rope begin??
The pic was taken with a disposable camera and the original is a bit grainy. Plus, it's been through a few moves and has been scratched up. If I can find the negatives I may try to play with it.
Careful picking on the fashionable duds there summer sausage boy! When's Rico Chavez getting back from the desert anyway?
Yup. There're three humps at the summit with fairly well-worn grooves in between. You lay the rop in the groove, make sure you maintain good commo with your partner (and, hopefully not too much of a weight discrepancy....) and go. The climb, position while belaying and rap are all surreal.
You go girl! Get some turns for me!
So what's the grade and name of the route?? Any gear recommendations?
You definitely have way too much time on your hands, but that's an Excellent pic!
It's definitely Antkiller--great route
Wow! Amazing looking crack. Makes my hands itch to do some jamming!
Nope. If you weren't presently smitten, I'd introduce you two.
Everyone tells me that! that Tom Morello guy must be one damn good lookin' man if even looks a bit like me!
Yup! Have to get back there sometime soon! Have to make the sequel to Dixie Craggin'. I hear it's tearining things up at Cannes and Sundance.
The Dude has pursued many careers in life: circus clown, rodeo clown, ranch hand...
Somehow bouldering seemed his crowning achievement, bringing all of his skills and passions together in one symbiotic send...
Thanks for the pic compliments Mark! It was great climbing w/you too. I'm already looking forward to my next opportunity to get spanked by the Forks! Markguycan, thanks for the help with locating partners for my trip!
4th of July wkend in '98
I stand corrected. Mammplitude it is. Not sure why it's rated harder than DM. The Maiden seemed much harder than this one.
He's really sewing up that route. Should have climbed some Bounty instead--it's the quicker picker upper!
Awesome angle of a great route!
Hey, I think I climbed with him one time. He kept licking himself when he should have been focused on belaying me and I'm pretty sure he used one of my quickdraws as a chew toy when I wasn't looking!
