Retracted pics
« on: March 14, 2012, 06:23:05 AM »
Pulled my post and pics, as it hadn't crossed my mind that Ghostrider and Mother Goose might be working a NEW line, versus an established albeit burly route.
Sometimes too much stoke, I guess.

Apologies to all (you two and those I've teased with the pics). 
Please respect the line, despite my possible faux pas.

Thanks.
Dale Persing

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

The funny thing is if you talk about the secret crag and it is more than 100 feet from the road, nobody goes to it anyway. I did post up some boulders in RI though recently, and within a few days I went back and every hold was plastered with chalk and tick marks  :( It is nice to see people enjoying them, but jeepers. They were only 3 minutes up a trail off a main road though.

So I'd say that Green's for instance could have maybe 100 pitches ???

DON'T TALK ABOUT THE SECRET CRAG!

actually, the second rule is: "secret crag?, you want to know about a secret crag?? i have no idea what you're talking about..."

i'm sorry nick, but that information is... well, um... we can't talk about it.
