Re: Chebacca's 5.10b 3p at Shannon Falls

I was also concerned regarding the placement of the bolt on pitch 3 but did not want to be a whiner. :D In addition to the previous comment regarding a fall from above the bolt, clipping this bolt on the left is difficult as it requires pulling the rope across your body (with a fair amount of rope d...

If the author wants to correct content or change his/her opinion they can easily add a new reply along the lines of "what I meant to say was....". Cer...

Upper Echelon grades

I did the route with Andy ("itsonlyadream") and we found some of the pitches pretty stiff for the posted grades. Pitch 3, in particular, seemed much harder than pitch 6 (both listed at 10c).
