[TR] Index G-M Route- G-M and other stuff (Thin Fi

Recommended Posts

Climb: Index G-M Route-G-M and other stuff (Thin Fingers, etc)

 

Date of Climb: 6/11/2006

 

Trip Report:

Climbed G-M route with Mr. Hansel Teh Ropegun bouldering the unprotected direct start after he and alpinfox tried to get me to slide up the slimey , wet, mossy ledge to the right and backed I off crying and wetting myself. What is with the last pitch of Heart of the Country? Sky Valley Rock says 5.11a, but maybe a block fell off? It was much easier than that.

Here is a picture to make this TR more exciting. As you can see, the 5.11ality of the beast is evident:

We climbed quickly in order to avoid the mosquitos. Fast and Light, just like in an REI catalogue description..

DH and Chuck..

Is Gary Y. really an idiot or are you cats simply jerks? I've never met the guy so I'm ignorant.

He's a nice enough guy in person. He just writes funny stuff online quite often and I just like to give him shit about it because I can't help myself (i.e. I'm a jerk). fruit.gif

that was pretty sweet. you managed to nail Jeff with a direct hit with the rope when he was right in the crux, leading the second pitch of thin fingers. then you dropped the rope on sire alpinfox. we were seriously going to kill you and your party, but then we realized the coils were dropped with loving care, and only good was meant by it.

No...it is a trip report. See the picture above that validates this statement. Plus I get to brag that I "climbed" few 5.11ish pitches at Index.

That "5.11" is 5.9 for three moves and then 5.6.

As chuck said in another thread. Either a new hold was created or unearthed from the moss, or it was a typo in the guidebook.

Ok, that makes sense. I didn't realize that you can't do TRs in Rock Climbing Forum but you can in Ice Climbing Forum (seems inconsistent to me).

SO! I made it up that pitch on Thin Fingers, so I'm obviously a member of the hardman club now.
