Haha, no but maybe i should apply. Any openings for part time boulder scrubber? :) I just really like the format of this book! Hopefully there is a comprehensive route guide for squam on the way that resembles this book, that would be mega.

We used the old anchor but linked the short pitch and the bulge, 2 rps The bulge move is not too bad 10- but...

My whole point was that pins are not like bolts at all and they should not be interchangeable in every single situation. If a bolt was added to this climb there would be someone hanging off it every time you arrived at pet wall since "sacking up" would not be as big of an issue anymore. Who wants to...

With no pin or bolt it could make FOTC one of the purest all gear climbs in squam, it would be way more challenging on all gear and a tremendous mental effort. Climbs like that are test pieces and when they get altered with bolts often it brings them down a notch, still classic but maybe not the tes...

just so long as there is 10bs that are harder than the 10cs or 10ds and there are V2s harder than some classic V4s and a few 12as easier than some 11cs we are on the right track don't forget a couple 12as that are tougher than the 5 star 12c just to keep everything in sync. IMO that's what is kinda ...

That sucks, was it fixed for scrubbing? One would have to be very inept to steal someones scubbing rope and start climbing on it. I'll keep my eyes peeled. :shock:
