Dustonian, thought granite was your thing before you came to the Red?

hah. the 135lb sport man comment probably struck a nerve. That one always does.

Dustin, you're a cool cat and big props (do the kids still give big props?) for the rebooting work.

Dustonian ain't no 135 lbs sport man cool cat. More like a 170+lbs sportradster fat cat.

But he does deserve props for rebolting.

Mine is experiencing some shrinkage as well... I also thought ATC was more like a 3-star 11b, still feel that climbing El Cap can make one feel like they have quite the "grower." Takes one to know one I guess...

And yes, sadly 170 on a good day lately.

watching this thread reminds me of the monty python bit with the BBC annoncer's play by play of the guy 'scaling' the sidewalk.
training is for people who care, i have a job.

What's that other vert / slab route from Terry over at the Gallery. That's a good one too. Also 4 star in the Red and 2-3 elsewhere probably. It's just the novelty of it I guess.

The first time I climbed real slab I about crapped my pants. What we call slab is not what others call it, but when you compare it to the lode it's as slab as any. :)

Lack of vocabulary makes a route a classic. Check the most online database for the most used tag and you'll find the word "classic."

Gone With The Wind is a classic movie but you couldn't pay me to watch it.
