  1. colchuck via standard walkup route sunday?

    Thinking of heading up it on Saturday. Were the snow conditions typical for this time of year? Crampons, etc?
  2. washington pass conditions.

    Did you make it up to Cutthroat? Is the route snow-free?
  3. [TR] Enchantments Tour - Various Walk-Ups, C2C 7/

    Was up there 7/9-7/12. There was still a ton of snow up there. Plenty of water sources. Everything is melting out rapidly.
  4. Vantage question

    It will be packed.

  7. Shiny new bolt on Castle Rock

    Funny- You guys are going on and on about a pre-existing bolt being upgraded. Nobody mentioned the scrap yard of old bolts, hangers, holes, glue, engine parts, etc. at the top of Jello tower (look down at your feet when glaring at this (brand new) 5 year old bolt next time). Most of the old bolts and pins in the area were installed because that was the only way to protect there before modern cams were invented. Think: old bolt on the S. Face of Jello Tower. Or, old bolt(s) on classic crack, etc. I think: It's OK to replace failing/ worn bolts if they were installed there at the time of the first ascent, and cannot be protected nearby with removable gear. This is probably pretty rare. I think the bolts on Old Grey Mare have been replaced recently? If so, that's a pretty good example.
  8. Rating/Name of route on boulder near GNS

    Group? Just me and one girl. On the Lizard then Rogers Corner. I was at the last belay when you topped out. I was kidding about the "full rack" comment. I just think free-soloing is a lot more fun & practical with no one around, and nothing but shoes and a chalkbag.

    Four cams and nuts isn't a full rack buddy. Where I'm from, Four cams and nuts IS a full rack.

    Also, try free-soloing GNS on a busy Sunday with a rope on your back, and a full rack clipped to your harness. Then video tape yourself on a 5.9 boulder problem. That would be sick!
  11. My weekend rant.

    Nah... I'm not buying it.
  12. Climbing video from Joshua Tree, CA

    I was there 3 weeks ago. I see the badass army van (in the background of the last scene) was still there.
  13. How CC.Com has changed, 2001-2008

    First three years: -Captain Caveman was busy peeing in people's butts. -Mike Adamson was plotting search and destroy missions against members of the cellphone posse. -Charlie was not yet banned for life. -Sexual Chocolate was gay, gayer, gayest. -There were still first accents to be had on sweet granite cracks in Renton. -CC.com was more interesting than porn.
