Trad ?
« on: April 22, 2013, 06:11:28 PM »
questions ? i'll be happy to provide suggestions. ESP for the classic NE  : sport/trad) 

Other than Rumney. it's the definition of sport/trad.. some fixed gear some runouts etc/...

i have not done Highway 61,, but i am asured that it is the defintion on hard, sketch, hard shit.. We did it in this kinda stuff in the 80's, at easier standards, and I am SO glad it still gets done,

Live it up.. suck it up

I wonder when the ghost bolt ladder will go free? That will be an interesting challenge. I know there have been 5.14 slabs that only one or two people have done in Spain. I would think that the Ghost wold be right up there.
