best route on the undertow

Watch out for the flying squirrels in the crack. Amazing route.

I just broke the crimper above the second bolt, woopsie. There is still a sequence that uses the slots out left, not really any harder, just different.
Cromper said on August 22nd, 2011
The last bolt on this route is about halfway out from the wall. It would probably blow if you fell on it. Watch out!
dustonian said on August 22nd, 2011
Will get out today or tomorrow to replace it, in the meantime best to climb a different route
dustonian said on August 23rd, 2011
repaired & good to go with SS glue-ins and steel draws

mister squirrel has returned to the first good hold on this route
neeko said on March 8th, 2012
be carefull, the rock around the 2nd bolt is not good... and here is the crux!
tejas said on April 14th, 2012
Just a heads up. Some of the rock surrounding the 2nd bolt exploded from the wall a few days ago.

This thing has been raped by the "Yank the Mank" crew. Dustonian, you should keep to bolting your "filler in" lines and stay away from established classics.
der uber said on April 11th, 2013
Uh I think most of the routes on that wall don't have draws. If you are talking about Dustin rebolting the line, what does that have to do with the yank the mank crew? btw I'm pro leaving draws up and pro removing bad draws as needed.

Pretty fucking critical of someone putting in a lot of time to go around and fix routes, often because the original equipper was too cheap to use SS.
Anonymous said on April 12th, 2013
Oh heaven forbid I have to take five extra seconds to hang my own fucking draws on raise your fat erection. My GOD. I come to climb at the lode so I can climb monotonous jug hauls, not carry a fat rack of draws with me! Fuck it, now i'm going to kill myself...or i'll just climb on aluminum mank until one ginsu's my rope in half. Good riddance.

You guys are kind of funny thinking these posts are anonymous. Many of you post as anonymous then log in under the same IP address. I know who you are. The Horst stuff was a little over the top. Probably the closest I came to moderation in the online guide. Might be best to remember that I pay to keep this site up so we can talk about rock climbing and how cool climbs are. This is a recreational activity for all of us so try not to get too serious about it because people get hurt and pissed. Thanks.
SCIN said on April 13th, 2013
Mr. "Anonymous", do you really think Chris didn't use SS in 1995 because he was too cheap? Is that the perception of developers using non-SS? I choose not to use SS not because I'm too cheap but because I'm of the mindset that if the routes I put up ever become so popular that they are worth having their bolts replaced in 15 years then let the future climbers do their part and replace them. I see it as a poor investment to use SS on routes which may end up sucking or never able to be published. I may be late to this debate since I haven't been following it but if someone has you and others brainwashed into that opinion then you may want to have your kool-aid tested for poison.

this is Hugh Loeffler, - It is too bad that Resurrection has been damaged. But the rebolting effort was well worth it. The Lode is likely the best cliff in the country and with the volume of traffic it gets it needed some CQI (Continuous Quality Improvement). If one route got rebolted in a less than perfect manner due to a learning curve on the part of the folks VOLUNTEERING to do the HARD work, then so be it. Shit happens. The bigger picture is that there are a core group of good people who give a shit enough to get the needed job done and a cliff that was becoming dangerous is now set with the farthest-end-of-the-spectrum-safe-forever-bolt.

I've cooled down on this a few times in the past couple of months, and can't for the life of me figure out what is different than before the rebolt. I still did the same moves and still had the same amount of fun.
Anonymous said on April 15th, 2013
512OW, nice subtle spray! ;) Mr "SCIN". I don't think Chris was too cheap when he bolted Resurrection. Standards are always progressing and evolving. After doing some homework, I would say that developing in the Red is behind in its progression. However, I did misspeak when I said developers were too cheap. I should have said developers AND the lack of community support for developers are the problem. If we can't get on top of it now, the problem is going to be exponential requiring huge resources to manage the rebolting in 10-15 years. Time to move the standard.
dustonian said on April 15th, 2013
Chris Snyder bolted this route, and laid down the chickenshit anonymous slander. BTW I did not rebolt this route, just wasted my time on the repair.
dustonian said on April 15th, 2013
Also this route is no more "damaged" than any other route that gets bolted initially with carbon steel. If you don't want "your route" to require rebolting at some point in the fairly near future, then use stainless steel the first time around.
Anonymous said on April 15th, 2013
SO good to know 512OW "cooled down" on this route rather than climb it for any other reason. OW you're officially a douchebag now, maybe you can make a song about how cool you are coolin down?
SCIN said on April 16th, 2013
Dustin what is the fairly near future?
SCIN said on April 16th, 2013
Mr. "Anonymous" I also find it very funny that you are so against me allowing anonymous comments on the site yet you take advantage of it when you need it.
dustonian said on April 16th, 2013
Highly variable and unpredictable unfortunately Ray, depends completely on the salt/mineral content, porousness, and seepiness of each section of rock where a bolt is placed.
Anonymous said on April 16th, 2013
Depends on how big of a load I blow on the bolts when I send. Semen is highly corrosive.
climb2core said on April 16th, 2013
I think the only intentional anon posts I have made have been on this thread. Was getting tired of the vicious anon slander and hate mongering that seems to go with it. But that really has nothing to do with the price of beans in China, or this thread. Trying to raise money to for ya to raise the bar for bolting standards so in 10 or 15 years, we don't have to be collecting 10 times the amount of funds and having people like Dustin doing 10 times the work for rebolting. BTW, I still would much prefer you to do away with the anon business.
pigsteak said on April 16th, 2013
dustin, are you 100 percent stainless on all of your new routes (as well as those you have mentored?)...
dustonian said on April 16th, 2013
It depends, but about 90-95% at this point. If the line is exposed to rain, wet sand comes out of the hole, or it seems especially "salty," then absolutely. Once the Legacy bolt is (finally) released then I will be at 100%... can't speak for anyone else.
Willy said on April 16th, 2013
I'm curious as to how you know if a line is salty or not. You still snorting that hole dust?
SCIN said on April 16th, 2013
No way Climb2Core. You saw the value in the anonymous posting by using it when you needed it. From now on I expect you to be an advocate for anonymous posting on this site.

Posting anonymously is for fucking pussies. I'll never support it! ;)
