AG- please confirm that Ho is FOS when he gave the grade of 12+. Always suspected, but can you confirm?

Nice! That line looks really cool, probably a lot harder than WTOK (though completely different style).

Great work Andrew. Who says RRG is not a bad ass trad area? With the comparisons to WTOK I to am wondering if 5.12+ is a sand bag.

See? This is what happens when 5.14 climbers figure out that placing gear really isn't all that hard.

I'm looking down at my rack and my gut, and feeling very inadequate right now.

the myth has been breached! retreat! retreat! fall back to "the best climber is the one having the most fun," and stories of sandbagged Gunks 5.6s!!!
