#4? head, fairly big head

Average Rating = 2.60/5 #4? head, fairly big head

This is actually the 2nd time I'd set this same head in the same spot - it popped with easy weight the first time, It appeared like it would hold this time - it did not easly bounce brought it out Look at the seam around the head - this was virgin rock hard to work on cleaning this for awhile - I think part of the deal with the first two placements was simply the powdering of the rock until it had conformed to the head size

#4? head, 3rd times the charm

Average Rating = 1.50/5 #4? head, 3rd times the charm

This poor head was getting beaten by now - I pounded the alumnum back towards the wire then tried it again. I think the first two simply poweded the granite until the shape was right - then it finally worked - I wonder if one should just shape the seam a little in the first place, leaving the head in better shape?

#2 head, same placements

Average Rating = 2.00/5 #2 head, same placements

After cleaning the #1 head - I pasted a #2 head in the same placement The dead head cleaned easily with small punch hitting upward from the bottom of the placement and prying outward after it was drove in a bit.

#2 head, after cleaning

Average Rating = 1.00/5 #2 head, after cleaning

My question deals with the back of this head - notice that immediately behind the wire - it had not deformed, let a lone, flowed into the rock. And yet the wire failed before the placement

#2 head, funknessed to failure

Average Rating = 2.00/5 #2 head, funknessed to failure

This head took a fairly aggressive aider bounce test just fine It failed with funkness with an hammer swing I would catagorize as "a firm tap" I was a bit surprised at how easy that wire popped.

#1 head after funkness

Average Rating = 2.00/5 #1 head after funkness

After getting on it with aiders and bouncing it a bit, I funkness tested. Dang #1 heads, not much more than the weight of the hammer falling did this

#2is circle - shot 2

Average Rating = 2.00/5 #2is circle - shot 2

Very desperate vertical crack - could not get both heads to set - this seemed like the most probable spot I thought it would do better than it did - could not get full body weight on it

The culprit side 1

Average Rating = 2.33/5 The culprit side 1

Pictures of the cam that failed - couple of things to note: I had the spring inside - I will not do this again, always place spring outside. You can see there was not much cam contact on this guy - it appears to have twisted out on me. bad placement - that I did not get away with

Time to lick wounds

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Time to lick wounds

Time to retreat and think about this one - biggest aid fall (or any fall) I've taken yet. Look at the green tree at 11 o'clock from the no trespassing sign - the flat part of the top of this tree - underlines the area I have been climbing in the back ground. The young lady that took picture for me, snapped the shot right as I turned my arm to see best photo angle - It's road rashed from wrist to elbow - from the penji tumble

Suddenly - 20' below anchor

Average Rating = 2.67/5 Suddenly - 20' below anchor

Damn it happened fast. Getting into the crack is scary - on ramp, already 12' from anchor - very thin getting started - first piece was the smallest splitter two cam - it seemed solid - but was not the best placement, as I was to find out! got on 3rd steps and was working on setting a #5 brassy - was getting ready to give the brassy a bounch test, and was air bound - bounch test failed!

Bashie hole

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Bashie hole

The old bashie took one small tap on the top with a punch, and it fell out! Scrubbed it up with a wire brush and this is what it looked like.

Repaired Bashie

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Repaired Bashie

Pounded it in with the small end of hammer - made some X's with a blunt chisel - then a couple down the center - straight it blunt chisel blows to sink it solid into that narrow channel down the center of the scar.
