Preach on brother....I second Sik's comments above.

Although like work when you go to the same place(read office) / crag all the time it can get boring..hence the ZZzzzzzzz in Johnny's post.

It's the amusement park feeling and density of routes turn me off.

I like Solar. Drive-by is way cool too. I don't like Wadcutter, it scares me.

I can't think of any 5.9 sport routes at the Red that I like. Sunshine, Moonbeam, and Wadcutter all turn me off. I guess Lord of the Flies was kinda cool.

I like those 5.9's, but DAMN they are weird. For some reason, all the 5.9's in the Red have some oddity about them, but I just can't put my finger on what it is. I thought I was the only one who felt that way though.

Yeah, it's like they don't require enough technique to deem them a 5.10a, but yeah, weird as hell, and pretty pumpy too!

What the hell do you know about cool routes, Ho? Do you even climb anymore?? Rumor has it that you picked up badminton as a hobby and are quitting climbing forever??

yeah so? badminton is cool. it works hand/eye coordination as well as giving you a wicked burn in your abs. i play "mint" (as it's called to us players) on a 2 to 1 schedule. that is 2 days of working out/playing tournaments and one rest day trying to fill up on creatine and vitamins. i'm training for a tournament in december in boston.

Kampsight is an awesome 5.9 sport route. If you don't think so you suck.

Actaully, Wadcutter, Sunshine, Moonbeam & Kampsight are all great climbs...they are just hard for 5.9! I can remember getting my ass kicked on Sunshine many years ago, but at the same time I thought it was way cool as I had never seen pockets like this before that were climbable by me at the time. I still climb it every once in a while when I am up at Military and all I can think is man this is hard for 5.9. Sometimes it seems no matter what the grade people seem to dislike the ones that are stout. I had a friend once say about Bare Metal Teen.....
"I anin't climbing that thing. I don't want to have to work that hard for 12a!"

It is too bad that he was so concerned about the number and not just inspired by the line.

I gotta agree that pistol ridge is the worst sport crag in the red. Besides the marathon hike to reach the climbs there is only a handful of sport routes, which are mediocre to say the best.
