Re: Tutorial - Uploading and Posting Photos

The guidebook route pages do not appear to be accepting jpgs.
Size < 500 kB and these are definitely jpgs. Anyone have any help to offer?

Re: anyone know what route this is?

Backside and beyond needs some documentation work. Three is a lot up there that fall in the margin that no one knows anything about.

I hear if you pray for 10 min in the parking lot you can get in free AND you can free solo.

Re: The Kentucky Wall

Why are climbers walking around different from all the other hikers that pass along the cliff on foot?

"The Revised Plan of 2004 specifically says no one can authorize new climbing routes in Clifty."
Where can we access this revised plan?

Re: The Kentucky Wall

You don't need an impact study to open an area. Impact studies have been done. The impact study is just another way of saying no to climbing. Look around at the plethora of climbing areas in the gorge and use them as motifs to minimize impact.

Re: The Kentucky Wall

"when you compare those population numbers to other visitor use statistics, you begin to realize that climbing is only a fraction of the area's adventure tourism industry." I have to call bullshit here. When you compare the popularity of Nat. Bridge State Park to Miguel's during climbing season, sor...

"
I would be willing to spearhead the fundraiser necessary to raise the $$$ to cover the study required "
The study had been done twice ... and repeated.

"The FS is worried about even 1970s level climbing"
You are talking about individuals either retired or dead.

Re: The Kentucky Wall

- That is a lot to process. - As stated any climbing progressive interaction with the FS has not happened ... no successful negotiation. I think Terry managed one before he departed. Wasn't Government Cheese at Military negotiated? - Who talks to whom about development? It seems it is all the Wall o...

Re: The Kentucky Wall

"a nut that couldn't be hammered out in the fall was easily lifted out the next spring." Do not conflate this fact with an unsafe placement. Nuts are of course directional and metals have a greater coefficients of expansion then sandstone so after cold weather the metal gets smaller faster and when ...

Re: The Kentucky Wall

Heath I've been establishing new trad in the DBNF also; not nearly at your pace however. I celebrate your spirit of adventure while minimizing the impact. Leaving a sling on a tree on a cliff doesn't amount to any ecological impact that anyone has to worry about.

Re: The Kentucky Wall

"The anti-climbing proposal in the 1990s was not to ban bolting. It was to ban climbing, all climbing" And then the moratorium set in, in which the existing routes were okay, but no new development. However, we still do not know why the initial climbing ban was imposed. I heard it was an autocrat wi...
