just kidding
automated said on July 28th, 2005
also, how can you rate something that hasn't gone. as wes said, climbing something in the red with one hang doesn't necessarily mean you're close to sending.

hey automated, good point, fyi wes has rated routes that has not yet been sent, just look at the online guide for the gallery. i mean, just because you can climb it with one hang doesn't mean you're close to sending. right?

Was cleaned in spring '10, Dirty by fall '10. Cleaned in fall, was dirty by March '10. Cleaned in March, was dirty six weeks later. Would be a quite nice 5.12 if the chains were at the last bolt, one which requires only three moves on crimps making use of the juggy ledges out right. The move immediately after the chains is fearsome (props Andrew!), but it and all the subsequent moves are perma-muddy. Andrew, would you mind if I (or someone else) installs a silicone beadline at the lip of the rock above the anchors? It should stop the seeping and the need to re-clean the route every time someone wants to attempt it. In its current condition, I'd give it no stars.

I equipped a perma draw on this route to make it easier to just climb the 5.12 section and hopefully keep it cleaner. The beadline seems like a good idea, i'll contact Rick in may when I return and ask if I can do it.

You might want to contact Rick and "ask" him if it is ok to have the permadraw there. Or I guess you could wait till spring and then ask FOMV about both :)
