Ok Trad, but by that logic Nutcracker is a multi-pitch 10 too, because you can climb bombardment first.
And ya i know, officially it's a 9+ .... but in reality it's 10.

If such a brilliant route, why has nobody gone and fixed up the mess? Is Bill opposed?

People have discussed doing it, but no one has stepped up to do it. I have only done it once and agree that the placement of many of the bolts left me scratching my head, I think it would be a relatively easy fix, but someone has to pony up the time and $$$ for hardware. It has potential to be one of the better routes here in the Valley.

Frik. duet to Duet Direct is multi pich climbing and splitting hairs  to call it otherwise.

Mark. Bill passed away. It's N Conway where they have not quite embraced the fact that bolts are good ;D when things do get fixed they often do a botch job of it and you end up with bolts rigged with nylon etc.  ::)

that was my take on most of the bolts on lost soles. shitty bolts,poorly placed and a few in poor locations. the belays were messy and poorly constructed and shitty bolts. That being said it's a brilliant route!

If such a brilliant route, why has nobody gone and fixed up the mess? Is Bill opposed?

Lost & Found / Lost Ice Tool @ Lake Willoughby
« Last post by alicech on March 23, 2015, 12:20:54 PM »
I left behind a Grivel Matrix Tech tool on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at the pullout just south of the approach to the Center Tables on Lake Willoughby. Careless mistake, I was too exhausted to notice until we got back home in Boston.

Approximate GPS coordinates for the pull out are here:

goo.gl/maps/eM9y4

I would be so grateful if you could contact me if you found a Grivel Matrix in that area!! I will gladly reward via dinner, beer, or even a small ice gear gift.  :)

Thank you so much!

Ward, Most of the sane climbers went Ice climbing yesterday ;D

Still some ice at Farley and none of them either.   You do need to walk about a half a mile since the normal parking lot is snowed in.

Climbing Gear Q & A / Re: patagonia ascensionist 35 L pack

I just bought the 25L in the same color...I like it so far. nice crag pack and I got it more for rock climbing this spring and summer. Seems to carry well, it is minimalist so you have to be pretty conscious of how you pack your gear because you will feel every stopper and every cam against your spine if you just huck stuff into the bag and head out the door. Some nice simple features, nice lines...seems like they are well built and well thought out.
