Thought it was a new route but dashed when found rap slings
« on: March 14, 2009, 06:59:46 PM »
My climbing partner Paul had his eye on this gem for some time. When it came time to do the route last week we found very old rap slings at the top. So it isn't a FA and begs the question who did it? We were dashed that someone up scooped us but also had such a great time on the route to post this clip on youtube.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBCb0blfG4M

Cool video! North Bald Cap. Those are probably my slings. We've been calling that route, Gold Mine, WI4.  Such a good route, isn't it? In fact, that whole area is pretty nice. Much easier getting in now that the logging has opened a good roadway in.  Most everything in the entire valley there has been done before and a few that didn't form this winter.

The video appears to be removed?!?! I would love to see it if you can get it back up an running. Sounds like a great route and video.  :)
