Is that the name of the route, or the FA? or both? Any other info? Grade? etc.

What Route is this? Indian Creek

Any idea what route this is? Indian Creek wall, LH side a bit before you hit Jim's Dihedral. Doesn't seem to be in the guide book. Ended up climbing it looking for Crack Attack (don't ask...couldn't remember what it looked like, and the description kind of fit - although I had my doubts). It's extre...

Re: Rebolt/Repair Question

I added 1/2" quicklinks to Creature Feature for that reason and they were gone in a month. Another option is to cut them off with an angle grinder. Someone needs to invent a lockable quick link, where you drive a pin in after it's closed and it doesn't open again. This crap is ridiculous. Edit: has...

Doctor Recommendation?

Anyone have a general practitioner they'd recommend in the Lexington,/Georgetown area?

Looking to set up a Primary Care Physician, preferably with someone who understands climbing/outdoors related injuries and need's. Let me know who you like!

Thanks for the advice rex, I was going to play Good Tang by ear: I know it's a bit stiff for the grade. Still looking at Leftout, Double Caves, and possibly Delirium Tremors

mark, yup, been on all of those except CTAM. Great routes!
