Open Project thread

Post by Wes » Sun Oct 14, 2007 5:38 pm

I am starting an open projects thread for lazy bolters (like me!) to post routes that they haven't sent, or have abandoned, or they just want to open a line for fun. Post the link to the online guide, or descriptions, etc. I will moderate this thread pretty closely.

Here are two lines that I equipped and haven't even touched, that are now open:

This one is probably 5.11ish. Looks cool, needs cleaned, and some anchors.

This one might need to have the anchors lowered to the last bolt, or moved way left of where they are now. Pretty line.

I just looked at it on Saturday. Its still there, and looks very doable if you ask me. I posted in the online guide that it is open and I would donate $100 to the PMRP and the FA when its sent. Also, Iron Mike at the Shire is open. It has draws but needs cleaning.
Oh man, he is messing that up. However, he is missing his left leg so that way would probably be harder for him. SCIN, just before spraying some beta for a climber doing a route the WRONG way.

Yeah, I bolted a project at Muir. The bottom looked easy, but it ain't, I can't touch it, and it's open. Here is the description from a previous post:

Bolts were installed about 2 years ago at a nameless wall in Muir Valley. Take off the red ribbon and send it.
1a) Send an e-mail to Muir Valley land owners (Rick Weber) - route may need some trail maintenance.
1) hike to the Great Wall in Muir Valley
2) hang a left at the base of the Great Wall and hike for 5 minutes, following the trail that follows the cliff.
4) bring a 200' cord (pretty sure this is long enough)
I'm guessing it's 5.13 something. Matt Nasty thought he sent it, but it turned out to be a wet dream.

There's the thing right of Zen at the Gallery

There's What's Wrong with the Underling waiting for a person of snake-like physique. Skeletor is open and closed all at the same time. How about Brad's dark side project. I guess closed. Has anybody been on these?

This thread might get a lot longer if we included unbolted projects too. i.e. Probably something left of Zen. How about between Calm like a Bomb and All that Glitters? How about left of Fifty Words? I guess you gotta rap them to know if they go.

What is up with the route that is left of palm friction at mt. olive? It has bolt at the top, no anchors and no other bolts. Looks 11ish.

I'm sure that if there are any unwanted or leftover projects that you want sent in the Red you should submit them to this guy. I hear he's staying at Keith Ladzinski's house in Zachariah.
