whats with the closed trad projects? can't we all have a go at it? Really, how impressive is a FA if you do not let anyone else try?

Wasn't "All That Glitters" a closed trad project? What's up will all of the negativity on here. You guys sure know how to take the fun out of climbing. Besides, this area is private land so it is up to the owner to manage it how he sees fit.

I just sent it today. So the drama is over. As for anyone who wants to get on it please do and let me know what you think of the grade, this is my first venture into the 12 range for trad.

nice job Josh! I'm psyched to check this thing out when I roll back into town. Good thing you sent, cause I was going to have to come show you up. Just kidding, nice job. The line looks fun from what I remember.

I TR'ed it after Josh sent it, this line is awesome! Very powerful with good gear (Josh whipped on a blue alien!) Jump on it.
