Rock Climbing: Trad / Re: Cannon - 3 routes in a day?
« Last post by AlpineIceRock on May 24, 2017, 02:28:08 PM »
I think when considering doing Cannon 2x, 3x etc. in day, one should consider walking off mandatory. I would even go as far to say walking down to the parking lot after each route and starting from there gives you the true Cannon experience.

If you can agree that part of the Cannon experience is having to walk 30-45 minutes to the base of a climb and then walk back down to your car, making it more alpine than say Cathedral (obviously) or Whitehorse, which is basically multi-pitch cragging, then doing Cannon 2-3x in a day should involve lots of walking.

Thoughts?

New Rock Routes / Crawford Cliff
« Last post by DC on May 20, 2017, 03:02:50 PM »
Last week I was up taking a look at the Crawford Cliff, across the street from the Highland Center.  There are three nice slab routes on the main face, which Sykes describes in his new guidebook.  There is one additional short route, located on a smaller face to the climber's right of the primary cliff.  It has three bolts and ends at a double bolt anchor.  Anyone know anything about it and who put it up?  Thanks, Chambo

Hey I'd be interested in some of the ovals for a project and maybe the cams. Can you email me some photos?

I just take a bath in that plasti-dip shit like you would coat an ice tool grip in. Impenetrable to black flies and mosquitoes. Only vulnerable area is the mouth hole, so I swish and gargle 2 oz of DEET. Also, I tape a sausage to my inner thigh before dipping.
