I only saw two lines right of the lines on the ledge (2-3). They were both on the right side of the hollow. Do you know which line is Jared route?
pigsteak said on October 2nd, 2006
both of the lines in the hallway are mine....the right one is lobster claw, the other one un named. I know Jared bolted something around the corner 20 feet going up a may not be done yet.
SCIN said on October 2nd, 2006
Okay, thanks. I did see one lone bolt on the arete just right of your lines. That must be it.

Can anyone tell me what parking lot this is?
Wolf said on October 16th, 2006
The Sore Heel Parking lot. The same one as Purgatory, Volunteer, Gallery, etc.

Some of these routes appear to be out of order.
SCIN said on October 23rd, 2006
Which lines are out of order? I'm pretty sure they're in the correct order. Did you notice in the directions above that routes 1-8 are to the right and 9-10 are to the left of the approach trail?

Sorry, I mixed them up for fun over the weekend and forgot to put them back in the right order.

Hatfield and Delayed Gratification are beautiful, clean, and full on. Delayed could be the best 10c anywhere.
