It is not Mr Bungle. Climb the other two and decide for yourself. That is all that matters anyway...

Sigh, I'll never be a real rock climber. :-(

Just saying that is cathartic. It takes away the pressure and lets you enjoy wasting your day without the ruse that you are actually doing a sport. In the acceptance comes salvation :)

The correct answer is Good Tang or Caver's Route. Maybe Cheaper than a Movie in there too...bolted routes under 11a are what's wrong with the Red!

Lol Kipp, but I thought rock climbing started at 12b??

no worries mate...off hand, I can't think of a single rock climber on this site...

but C2C is correct.....wasting a day in the woods is easier to accept if we remember how insignificant it all is....

Clif how about you have Dru set up another 10 for you to hang all over on TR and then top the day off with trespassing again on land that you were told not once, but twice to leave in two days?
thanks, man.
training is for people who care, i have a job.

LOL, I think that was in reference to something about how there are not enough smiley emoticons :D And feel free to correct me if I was mis-speaking ;)

depends on the user group on here...the corollaries are always changing to match the times.....since the Red is currently being overrun by weekend college dudes with their non climbing girlies in tow, I thought I take the time to let them know that going bolt to bolt on the myriad of 9s and 10s at the red and then spraying is not climbing....

the best 5.11 in the Red is.... Game Boy. 95 ft, tech, good climbing, with a top out and a vista. No better.
