anyone ever bouldered in Wild Iris?
Just like this but you have to avoid
This route works up 70 feet of not-so-bad terrain to a four-move boulder problem of extreme difficulty. Not too many people have climbed it so there is no confirmed grade.
It has been climbed on gear but the F.A. did not want gear to get fixed in the crack so he bolted it.
Be prepared for 20 foot runouts.
The bolting part? If he did not bolt it people would climb up to the crux, fall many times on their gear, get their gear stuck and abandon it. The slings on the gear would rot and the cables would rust. Then there would be a bunch of fixed, worthless gear in the crack that nobody would clip. Then the whole process starts anew.
Yes it is, but they were using slightly different beta.
Maybe we would not have to clean Zodiac every five years if we did use this logic.
love the view, toprope is uninspiring
cool move, the photo is not crisp enough, could be the compression.
where is this high valley you guys speak of?
Look at the title again, it says free, not free-solo. Maybe he thought the rope would distract from the composition? I guess the shadow of the Metolious camming unit worked well with the composition, as well as the cordellete.
the photoshop blur is a bit too harsh
Wholesome Folsom it is
"If we get enough snow, I think it might be possible to billygoat the climbing section on skis, perhaps a short section of belayed skiing. We'll see."
We skied where you are climbing.
I thought for a second that this was a Deep Water Solo pic with the water-line being right at the horizontal break. Strange symmetry. Great Pic.
Nope Joe, you're wrong. These are the two cracks you see as you drive over the bridge. Each has a one-bolt steel ring anchor on top. Maybe 40 feet tall?
fix your horizon while you are post-processing
but every chalk bag feels the effect of gravity and 9 out of 10 trees grow straight upward
fix the horizon
good capture joe
