I prefer crags  where no one hears the thump of the body hitting the ground

Black humor indeed... 😁

You've been hiding and Greens and NWP too long! When you climb down where the normal people are, you see this kind of thing all the time! Shana and I most often try to say something, and sometimes we just leave the area, no wanting to see a splat.

No matter what, it takes a lot of energy to climb around folks who we perceive as less safe.

Most importantly, though, did the arete project go? :-)

You mean this one?

I TRed it, but I want to dial it in more before bouldering it. The ground drops away some so it is almost 25' tall and there is a pointy boulder to land or bounce into. I will probably boulder the face to the left first, as it is easier and more secure.

Wow that looks WAY different without all the snowdrifts to land on. Lemme know if you want some extra pads or a spot! Good luck!
