3 out of 5 stars Nice shot brutha, you should tie a keeper knot or tuck that in though. :)

5 out of 5 stars Thanx... Just a beat up Olympus Stylus "point and shoot". And yes, Karen took this shot.

A guide and I did CPR on a guy that fell from the rap bolts at the top of this pitch. BTW... The 2nd pitch, usually not done, is better than the 1rst, both can be done in 1 with a 60 meter rope.

0 out of 5 stars No... It's NOT El Cap.

2 out of 5 stars What are you talking about Pete ??? He's "free climbing" it, notice his hands <b>touch</b> the rock. If <b>you</b> were climbing this, you'd be pulling on the draws and standing in aiders, <b>eh</b>?

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars Correct me if I'm wrong but... This is the view looking East, therefore it must be a sun"rise".

3 out of 5 stars Pete... It's called "free climbing", as his hands <b>touch</b> the stone, not nylon or metal.

3 out of 5 stars Good shot Andy, Karen and I did the Kor-Ingals Route on the other side... Man the approach SUCKS !!!

View this Photo
0 out of 5 stars I would have to say this is definately the <b>Worst Way</b> to tie two ropes together for a double rope rap, as this is an <b>obsenely high profile knot</b> and would easily snag on something when pulling the rope. What are you thinking Pete ??? For a <b>Big Wall Theorist</b> you "don't get it".

View this Photo
0 out of 5 stars Ahhh... Understood. I'm not a <i>Big Wall Theorist</i>, so I was confused by the photo description, <b>"...to join two fixed ropes together, ropes on which you will either be jugging or rapping."</b>

5 out of 5 stars Nope... It was just really hazey outside when I lead it. My wife is pictured cleaning the same route after it cleared up a bit. Check 'photos from rrradam' for the one of her.

3 out of 5 stars How many "ranters" above have climbed at Owens ??? I have, I prefer Trad climbs, but Owens is a sport crag.<br>First off... Owens is and always has been a <b>Sport Crag</b>, as 99% of the routes are face climbs, thus everything is bolted. <br>Second... There are more bolts next to cracks on El Cap than there are next to cracks in the entire Owens River Gorge, and the bolts on El Cap are used for Aid. (BTW... Aid is synonymous with <i>HELP</i>, that is what is needed to get up when one cannot free-climb. Hardmen want to free an Aid Route, not Aid a free climb.). <br>Third... The rock at Owens is friable volcanic tufa I believe, so only the lower third is sound enough to climb, bolts are the only way to protect and get down, and Trad placements are not solid here, even if there is a weakness in the rock. <br>Fourth... You should've started a thread instead of ranting in the comments section of this beautiful pic, it sullies it. (This I am now guilty of as well in order to respond. :( ) <br>Fifth... You should get the facts before you parot the rants of PTPP, it makes his "fan club" look like mindless automatons.<br>
Bolters have their places, and Owens is one of them, as it is a sport crag. Bolts do not belong at Trad crags.

I thought you were a fellow SoCal "oldschool punker" like me.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Read the 3rd comment... We climb with a "beat up point and shoot".

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I dislike bolted cracks as well, as evidenced by my many replies on the subject... I am a passionate Trad climber. But Owens is known as a Sport crag, not even a mixed crag. Now <b>I'm</b> sullying this great picture. I even copied it to my screen-saver slide-show.

4 out of 5 stars Great shot !!! I just met this guy yesterday at Williamson. How come he doesn't have his "Melvin Shirt" on ???

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Williamson is a Sport Crag where bolting is not an issue. This climb is the only one I've seen equipped with "chain draws". Owens, however, has plently, but only on roofs. The <b>only</b> people who venture down to it are climbers, not "greenies", as there is not much to look at unless you climb and a stout hike out. At least for a smoker like me.

5 out of 5 stars Relentlessly... I told him I'd give him 100:1 odds that he couldn't climb that without crying like a school girl. He declined, as he said, "That's a given bro." He started crying once he dipped his hands in chalk. He did it though... To the screams of his daughter saying, "C'mon dad, get up that thing !!!" And this may be in the LA Climb On! video coming out soon.

4 out of 5 stars I've climbed at Owens, and I hate to see climbs that can take natural pro bolted, but... <BR>As stated above, Owens is tuff <I>(a type of rock consisting of consolidated volcanic ash)</I> and is not as solid as it looks in a picture. And, the ethic at Owens is to bolt, as it is a "sport crag" (a really good one), not a Trad crag. <BR>If you have never been to Owens, are unfamiliar with the area's accepted bolting ethic, and have never climbed on tuff, but still think it should be chopped, then you really should put down the climbing rag and get out of the gym, since you'd probably need a ladder to reach the bolts anyway.

Jesus ?!?!? You don't look of semitic descent at all brutha, you look more northern European... Like Eric the Red. Funny how the movies and Westernization has led many to believe Jesus was even close to blond and blue.

I loved Sam's Throne, almost as much as Mt Magazine. Nice shot.

You can climb it on lead Jay... It'd just go at R/X instead of G, right ??? Not everything need to be G rated bro, just like highball boulder broblems don't need to be bolted either, right ???

Damn guys... I actually like the lines, I mean, umm, curves.

Damn !!! Great picture !!! I love the rope all the way down to the belay, great perspective.

I love what looks like a wire gate biner (upper right) loaded on the gate added for extra strength. Nice attention to detail. Bravo !!!

Great problem, but I chickened out when commiting to the top, and I even had Michael Reardon and friends egging me on.

Sweet crack... Looks like it's gonna get brutal up higher. Hard to climb the fat stuff with grace.

I like this a lot... I printed it out twice, once for my cube, and I may actually frame the other and hang it along with climbing pics.

Just n00b 5.9 wanna-be elitists who fail to understand that the above 'gym climber' would likely flash their hardest climbs outside in flip-flops.

Dude! That looks like it's from Lord of the Rings!

I'd be very interested in the Geology of that formation, and the detailed process that created it.

View this Photo
Let me be more specific... I understand how limestone is formed, but I am more interested in the detailed erosion process that created that, as I don't see a bunch of rubble at the bottom, and it's pretty isolated and semetric.

Beautiful!

Great route! My wife and I did this in 38 degree weather with a stiff breeze. Burrr!!!

I did this with a big painfull blister on my foot, and Mike Reardon heckling me calling me a "cry baby" as he was belying me. Great route!

Wow! You sure told me. You're just too 'sick' man. Can't wait to see you on the front page of R&I or Climbing. Why are you way below the bolt? Did you like take a huge whipper on the crux of that 5.5?

I don't have a helmet though... Does that mean I've been doing it wrong all this time?

Welcome to climbing... If you get into it, you'll likely find that it's more of a lifestyle than just a sport.
