Man, I tried that problem so many times and did about every combination of moves I could. It finally went with the heel - toe cam above my head. Looks funny I know, but that problem is so cool it's scary.

pauly -- 3 moderates on the front were pretty cool, just warmups at about V0-V2 and that's the downclimb to get off. The line on the back I worked was steller (and no graffitti)! Depending on the topout it'll go at maybe V4. Slabby and reachy on desperate crimps to start then kicks back kinda steep w/ high steps and a big throw to the top. Very balancey, I barndoored off setting up the slopey topout. Maybe 15 ft tall at the back, 18 at the front.

Best. Campsite. Ever.

Yeah. You should have seen it. Sunshine hypnotized it with his sparkling chalkbag and convinced it to jump to its death. But, it landed softly on Meadows rug instead and we haven't seen it since.

Could that route have any more tic marks? The damn thing looks like it's got instructions written on it. Brush time for sure.
Ticking is gym climbing outdoors.

There are a couple small ticks. Perhaps it would be better to get people to BRUSH THE HOLDS before we worry about brushing a couple tick marks?

Love those shots of Snake. Look at that wing span!

And that you can see some of Meadows bumps, bruises, chalk on face, sweat...looks very accurate. Or more of what I look like when I climb anyway.

Great pics!

It looks there is some writing on there, too. What's up with that? Glad to hear the whole route isn't ticked.

Sand inhibits the production of toughtosterone, so get it out and send.

Yep. And it isn't writing, it is some strange rock markings. And tick marks or no big deal. In fact I think I added a couple to a route today.
