FA above PPP at Wall of Denial?

Postby kato » Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:13 pm

At Wall of Denial Saturday, we were on the ledge above PPP and I think 11.11. On the right, there's a stack of blocks up to a small roof, then a wide dihedral with a handcrack to the top. It looked fun so we did it. I don't see anything in the guidebook on this, and based on the loose rock/lichen/vegetation at the top, it didn't look like it had been done before. Know if anyone else has done it?

Sounds like an FA.

Personally, I enjoy reading about "adventures" . . . particularly lengthy trip report posts with pictures. Perfect example of what I'm talking about is this post from a few months back:

Nice to see people out there taking a different path.

Man I totally second that sentiment. I like to see the average Joe giving it a go. You can relate; it's motivating.

WOAH. I now have a role model! And all this time I thought I was the only one in the entire world (wide web) that used sarcasm! I wonder how to get a hold of him. Why doesn't such a trusted source of information, like The Onion, print his email address so it makes it easier? Watch out RedRiverclimbing.com We're soon to have the sarcasm of not one, but TWO minds posting in this forum...

Mark;
I don't think I could stretch this into that big of an adventure... The worst of it was getting through the briars at the top. I look like someone through a running blender at me. There's about 8ft. of interesting climbing to pull the roof. But the cost of getting to it is low, and the view at the top is nice. If you follow the trad ethic of topping everything out, it's a useful pitch. I think my second got a couple pics, it usually takes a while for him to download them though...

I agree. Obama is a douche.

Assuming that you are talking about POTUS which one? M or B? And Is that opinion supposed to be pertinent to this conversation? I suspect this is probably douchbaggage squared. By the way I am not a fan of Teddy Roosevelt, but I loved Clinton.

If you can't link the two, then you're not ready for this conversation, big boi. But on the same note, has Alpine magazine published this amazing feat yet?
