A Must do if you are back in this holler

Killer fun line. Looks like it might be sparse gear from the ground, but it's all there. What's up with the black cord around the anchor tree? I've never seen it before and was hesitant to trust it. Last person rapped from tree to avoid trusting their life to it. Not bashing, just wondering what it is, strength rating, durability in sun/weather.

Next time I am out here I will replace the current sling anchor with a bolted anchor.

This route looks awesome. I will have to give it a go next time I'm out there.

Chiyram excited to get on a trad route... never thought I'd see the day.

I could climb this route every day for a year and still have fun. Classic.

Very, very nice. The a-typical trad tree anchor might be my favorite part

Loved this thing, we added some new tat to the tree

And cut down the poly boat cord that was up there. What is wrong with people.

That's neither "boat cord" nor polyester, you total fucking retard
Anonymous said on July 11th, 2018
and we found the culprit of the shitty cord! Now you can explain what type of garbage you left up there...

Are you actually too stupid to read the earlier comments on this same fucking route? Stop wasting people's time, mongoloid

Having something easily identifiable as climbing cord or webbing is important. I'm glad the stuff you used was plenty strong enough, but to most people it looked like hardware store braided poly cord. Technora has the worst UV Resistance of any commonly used climbing fiber, after 3.5 years baking in the sun you should be thanking me for taking the time to switch out your tat and hauling your abandoned garbage out of the woods. As much as I'd love to, I don't read all the comments on rrc before doing a route.

Climb more and spew worthless shit all over place less, moron

Simply fantastic.... whoever cut down the original anchors from the tree, you could have packed it out with you instead of just tossing it to the bottom of cliff and leaving it.
