The Goblin Knobs

Average Rating = 3.00/5 The Goblin Knobs

If this was in the midwest, it'd be a State Park. But there are no signs, no people and it's in the middle of no where. Where? You gotta know where.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Stood Up. Might as well Boulder

She stood me up. I met her on rock climbing.com.She seemed so psyced to go climbing in the desert. So I loaded up the camper with gear and food and headed out. Friday night at 7pm I get the call. She's not coming. I got food, a place to sleep, might as well stay for the wekkend and boulder. Photo/Climber: The Chossman

Average Rating = 3.00/5 overview of the new crag

Yes, it looks like josh, it feels like josh, it even tastes like josh, but it ain't jish. It's better. No winnabagos, no scumbag climbers, no rangers, no Nazi Park Service.

N. Buttress Mt. Dade

Average Rating = 0.00/5 N. Buttress Mt. Dade

This route is by far the best alpine route in Rock Creek Canyon. Yup, even better than the Ruby Wall (which has a lot of grainy rock), and yes my friends, even better than that 100 crowded classics route the North Butress of BearCreek Spire (but Bear Creek's summit is by far the best!)

The Hardest Boulder Problems in the World?

Average Rating = 3.40/5 The Hardest Boulder Problems in the World?

The Alabama Hills just might have the hardest boulder problems in the world. There are many huge overhanging case hardened faces; take the 45 degree wall at hueco and extend it twice its length. But finding them is the problem since the majority of the rock is shite. Contact me and I'll give you a tour because I am not good enuf to climb them. Where is Chris Sharma when you need him?

Horny Toad Attempts a Mantle.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Horny Toad Attempts a Mantle.

This guy can climb better than Chris Sharma, is tougher than Rienhold Messner, has the grace of Lynn Hill and is meaner than John Bachar. He even spits blood from his eye. When it comes to his sex appeal, well, he's a horney toad. And dig that outfit, way camo for today's militaristic youth. You won't find him crusing the latest testpiece in the Buttermilks...no he is strictly Special Forces in Iraq. Photo by The Chossman

Average Rating = 3.00/5 First ascent, first climb

At Mike's Backyard. The neighbor's daughter liked the crazy antics going on when Mike moved in. She begged to do a real rock climb, so here we go! Crystal following the first ascent of The Ladies Route, 5.6. Mike was right beside her: and a good thing too. She cried and yelled and screamed, but got up it. Photo by Rotten.

Presently there are four sport routes, one mixed route a jam crack, a layback flake, an aid climb in the process of being ascended and plenty of bouldering. Did I forget to mention canyoneering and caving? Of yes, and the never never hole.

Not in Any Guidebook

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Not in Any Guidebook

This fine climbing area is a few miles south of California's most poular hiking and mountaineering trail. Beautiful cracks in perfectly cleaved granite - yet no guidebooks, no photos, no mention, no climbers. Should I even mention it?

Storm on the Needles

Day Needle on the left - which has stupidly been renamed Crooks Peak does not have any routes that take advantage of the beautiful dihedrals in the center of the face whilst the lines on Keeler Needle (on the right) are rapidly filling up.

Somewhere in the High Sierra...again

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Somewhere in the High Sierra...again

This formation is on the opposite side of the canyon from the Dome. How about that sunlit arete right of center. Only 4-5 hour walk from the car. The entire formation is about 1500' tall. Where is it? Take a guess.

Rowell's Arete on the left and Central route on the right (in blue) are depicted in High Sierra Classics (Fiddler/Moynier)and Peaks, Trails,and Passes (Secor) inaccurately. I climbed both routes in blue and they do not match Rowell's description. Actual routes in red.

West Face topo

Average Rating = 4.00/5 West Face topo

The West face of Baboquivari Peak provides a free climbing alternative to the wall routes and nail-ups on the East side. I'itoi dance is probably the best route with The Cloud Man Got Angry variation to Born Of Water second place. Can anyone draw in Times Lost and Crystal Line on this topo?
