Are those the names of each route at the base? (or Elder Signs? :) Thats a great idea. Cool naming theme for the crag - if I'm ever in the area I'll certainly have to visit. How many other places can you climb a route named after an Outer God?

5 out of 5 stars Very nice shot - did you get the move? Nothing wrong with the look on your face - its the look of total, 100% focus - I've been there - well, not on a 12d - yet.

Well, I'm guessing he is following while wearing his own rack to help get used to the weight, and he's also no doubt cleaned alot of the leader's gear - so figure he is wearing a rack and a half. Anyway, in my opinion Rubicon is one of the best 10d lines at JT - a must-do.

5 out of 5 stars Wow - who is the awesome climbing dude kicking this route's butt? Clearly not a leader to be trifled-with!

I hear P1 is supposed to be really run out and have bad pro - so basically leader must not fall for the first half of P1? What is the grade here?

So why was the rope photoshopped out? The photo would be great anyway - nothing added by a misrepresentation.

Damn - I think that happened to me too!

5 out of 5 stars Very nice - with the contrasting colors it looks a bit like a painting.

"looks like a couple of damsels in distress!"

Hardly - they don't look to be anything like in distress to me - look to be quite happy where they are, in fact. Somewhere around Big Bear perhaps? Holcomb or Castle Rock?

The 'climbing in out-of-place clothing' photo series is entertaining and interesting - and looks nice. I guess the next step would be a shoot with the young lady trad leading in gown. Just think of the juxtapositioning of gear, formal wear, harness and rope. The full palette of colors brought forth by the rack of stoppers, Camalots and tricams atop the gown - it would be a feast for the eyes and imagination. :)

Hello Foot,

Nepal EVOs? I've used a pair for the small amount of ice climbing (merely TRing) I've done - they are nice boots. And are those Grivel crampons (G12? G14?) in single-front-point mode? I have a pair of G14s myself, and they have also served me well. What is the difficulty rating on the dry tooling section?

Is that gear in the wall? I guess that is for practice, as it doesn't look too high up?

I second that - avoid this BLM land at all costs. A group of us tried it once. One car got a flat tire do to metal shrapnel from another car carcass that had been blown apart by an explosion of some form. Also rednecks like to camp out there - staying up late making lots of noise, riding dirt bikes (one drove between a member of our group in his sleeping bag and one of our cars), shooting (guns, fireworks, etc), and they buzzed our campsite the following morning with model RC planes. One person described it as "a redneck olympics".

If you do camp here, erect a barrier to stop idiots on dirt bikes from driving through your camp (wire, ditches, etc), and I suggest barrage balloons/RF jammers/paintball gun AAA to ward off the RC planes.

We in California feel sorry for the climbers in Florida.

5 out of 5 stars Has anyone freed this route? What does it go free at?
