He climbs nearly as well as he shoots.

I'll have to crop that out. It's due to wide angle x shade cup on lens.

can I crop it and repost, w/o losing the commentary?

btw, actually the Serrator, 5.11 OW on the way rambo wall. I wasn't going to take the time to put the route details into the database, cause I wanted to associate it only with rambo wall area, but the db wouldn't let me!

actually not my shade cup as I stated above. I think it's just the width of the angle with the lens I was shooting with. WTF? oh well, for the price I paid for it, I can just crop later.

4 out of 5 stars Killer shot, but I want to see more in the frame! ...like more of the curtain forming on the right and more of the pillar he's already climbed.

4 out of 5 stars sick! (that's not Swain is it?)

a slung icicle and a nut protected the last 35' to the bolts located on the left wall, out of sight over the top. The pillar didn't feel like it was bonded to the rock exceptionally well.

This is probably one of the safer hard climbs in maple owing to its NE orientation and lack of sun exposure. It protects well with nuts, baby angles and tcu's in most circumstances.

taken from the anchors below the nipple?

also pitch 3. P4 is a short tube in a corner. Occasionally a dagger will form 20' left of the tube, but it is inconsistant.

that's because it is.

nice climb, beautiful climber, cool shoes, neat rope, lime green shorts, CFM lipstick (YEAH!)

4 out of 5 stars Those bolts are reportedly a photographer's anchor. When we climbed the route post-cleaning in '04 (first party to do so, yahoo!) I was able to step to the bottom of my ladders and clip the east-most bolt hanger as pro, which facilitated cam-hooking the entire nipple to the bolt. As rap-anchors go, they might work, though you're hanging a ways out from the wall. In order to reach them, one would need to pendulum out from the wall as one raps, providing the opportunity to clip one of the bolts at the apex of the swing.

That's spiderjean on lead, p5, her first lead on a big wall! Having someone to hang out at the belay with was sooooo nice, and climbing as a party of three was the most fun I've had on a wall ever, and when you factor in that it was with the wall-kittens may elevate it to the most fun bar-none!

nice... cam-hooks off the ground!

Tape. The name of that game is <i>Serrator</i>, and it is aptly named. It takes stacked fists, chicken-wings, knees, thighs, shoulders, gastons, lie-backs and determination to make it to the top.

(OW= larger than fists, smaller than a chimney.)

Addiroids, you are specifically dis-invited from <i>ever</i> coming to the creek. Too bad for you!

a pic of you ass-raping a young boy, regardless how much he appears to be enjoying it, is not, IMHO, appropriate for use as an avatar.
