Yes, that's graffiti. The Quincy Quarries are near downtown Boston, and definitely an "urban crag". The rocks are covered with graffiti.
If this was a course, then you all FAILED. Including your teacher! The angles between many of the pieces is too wide, and actually INCREASING the load seen by the pieces, as opposed to distributing the load. The angle of the webbings at the power point is also way too wide, and cross loading the biners. The biner on the left is creating a pulley affect, again INCREASING the load on the anchor point (at a minimum it should be tied off).
Way to alienate an entire region of the country by saying "bastard New Englanders".
At least we don't have to ice climb in NC.
No hassle from the campus cops? Cool.
jonqdoe, if I lived there I would do it in a second. What are you waiting for????
Don't think it makes much diff either way if you grab the rope that close to you. I never do. But its only going to be bad if you grab the rope below your pro. And it may prevent you from flipping upside down if the fell is messy.
Cleaning those routes would be a total bitch if they weren't fixed.
The guy who commented "splat" must not know jack about sport climbing. Just look at the route, its so severly overhanging, you can take the biggest whipper and just hit air. Many climbers skip the last clip on this route going up to the anchors to save energy, and many of them fall in this same spot. In fact, after you fall you have to swing in and boink like crazy in order to get back on the route, the rock is so far away. BTW, nice action shot. For this route, if you include more of the rock in the frame, you will get more rock detail and the cliff will be more exposed (not as dark). This overexposes the background (whites it out) to some extent, but that wouldn't have mattered in this case, since the fog ensures that there is not much to see in the valley background anyway.
Especially in New England.
Thats really bad.
Great lighting and positioning.
LOL. Overbolted? Anyone who claims that, go try the route and skip some bolts, and see how you feel.
Dude, where is that route? It looks rad!
