It's hit or miss weather right now. Like 50% chance of rain every day. If you come here for a week, you will definitely be able to climb, but maybe not every day, or long routes every day. But you WILL be able to climb. If you want guaranteed dry weather, wait until July. June is often wetter than A...

I would guess he was sending routes at the Starvation Lake Crags with Culbert et al in the 60s. with his build I guess he probably rocked at offwidth and sucked at...

Let me guess

You named your route "Ashlee I Love You" and now that she's history and you're dating a chick named LaTawnya, you think you'd better change it?
