Might be a bit before this one gets open - kinda want to do the fa and I am not strong enough right now. Should be pretty cool if it goes (kinda thin in a couple places)

the red tag avengers are counting Wes....364 days counting... screw your hard work for a sweet line. screw the trail development you've done out there. screw the money you've spent on hardware. screw the day you spent developing instead of climbing. we deserve to have this thing opened. and now. (btw, I think I know exactly where this line is. it looks rad. good luck mr. kung fu panda)

Heh, yeah the red tag police might have to write me up! Actually no red tag yet, since there are no bolts - just anchors. Will be easy for people to TR from Josie's route once she opens that up though. And, if it does end up being pretty hard, I will just have to let my wife send it for me! ;-)

Rapped down it today. Fondled some holds. Looks awesome. Can't wait for this to open up Wes. Harder than Ballscratcher is my bet.

Did you try any of the moves? I think I am going to bolt it sometime this winter and give myself til spring to send, or for Tania to send, then open it if not. Maybe sooner if it seems way hard. Hmm, guess that means I should actually start this whole rock climbing thing again...

Any progress on this one Wes?

How long does a set of anchors reserve a closed project? Seems like at a certain point, someone else should bolt this and take it over. Looks like it will be a cool route.

Chris just wants extra points. Besides, Wes is going to bolt it last winter...

Yeah, you all have done so much for the red and all, and I do suck for opening a crag early, rather then just bolting and red tagging everything and keeping it quiet. But, fuck it, really. I will open it, re-name it "over it" and you all can do with it what ever the fuck you please.

that's my current modus operandi wes...bolt until I am full, and then announce. it actually works out nicely.

Whoa, I didn't mean to open a can of worms. Sorry, I was just curious because it sounds like a cool line. I will tip-toe out of the room now...

I'm not a big fan of the name "Over It", but it does appear that Wes is over the whole rock climbing thing anyway. I guess if someone else were to bolt the route they could come up with a better name. Thanks for everything you have done Mr. Panda.

Thanks to Wes' great eye on this line. I finished bolting it about a month ago and didnt feel right putting a red tag on something that wasn't mine to begin with. Rumor has it Blake sent it recently and called it 12b.
