ps. other things aside there's no reason to get down on somebody just because they can't boulder very well, although in this case, I understand... boxing_smiley.gif

Cleary I missed something. Stop rubbing it in!

 

So "Swiftwater"? Is there a guide online, or do I have to buy another overpriced guidebook?

Swiftwater is a picnic area on Hwy2 at about mile marker 90.

Picnic area is on South side of the road. There are boulders on south and north sides.

Haha! Distel tried to tell me that "Footless Traverse was "V3"!!! hellno3d.gif You be sandbaggin' me! madgo_ron.gif

 

26. Footless Traverse (V6) *** A long, pumping, technical face traverse on the uproad side of the huge boulder just left of Royal Flush. Good luck!

exactly. Paul is a major exception. Especially because he was talking trash about bouldering while he was at swiftwater bouldering. I just found that to be lame.

Luke, I'm not going to get sucked into another little flame war here. Suffice to say, you need to understand that there's a difference betwenn self-depricating friendly ribbing, and trash talking.

 

On a more positive note, I'm getting stoked for rock climbing again, whether Distel is going to make fun of me for not having climbed in a long while or not. cry.gif I had a good winter, and I'm looking forward to having a good summer, too.

Yeah that sounds about right... way to represent in "enemy territory" cracked hahaha.gif

 

Oh well, one of these days I'll get to see you crankmasters in action. I can only climb like maybe V2 or V3 though. I have to go back to finish off this one. You'll probably recognize it. I was guessing it's like V2 but I don't know.

it isn't v6. I told you it was v4. The guide says 3, but its a 4. Not even close to a 6.

Back to the original discussion in this thread... Ltown granite is sweet. Me and ASHW_ found good sport routes and cracks even though neither of us had been there before. Camping was hard to find, but only because it was a busy weekend. And it sounds like there is good bouldering too. It was fun.

Dats true, you did say 4, I'm just messin witcha.

 

I think the traverse is harder than the V5 I was working on though. It don't matta. It's gonna fall to the BoulderFox as well!
