Anybody know what the newish line at the far left of Whiskey Jack is? Short with steep boulder problem at the anchor?

Thanx

I think it is 12+ or mid 12. Gary Foster got the FA.

That was the last route I cleaned up there. Gary I think was first and Pete also did it.
I cannot remember what I named it? I guess I should come up with something. :lol:

Wasn't it called "Enjoy Your Sandwich", and about 12b?
I thought I read about that on this site last year...
Maybe you mean another route though, Haven't been up there this year yet.

Original Post....... (http://squamishclimbing.com/squamish_cl ... sc&start=0)

The route has been sent:

Enjoy your sandwich 5.12b
5 bolts (currently has a bail biner on one of the anchors. I will add chains ASAP. 13 meters long. very fun, great sequence.
FA: Gary Foster
Prep: Marc Fournier

The route may go at 5.12a, not sure but my best guess would be 12b at this point.

Prep as in donating his (Marc's) own time, effort, and money towards making the route safe to climb.

Why would anyone ask if prep = chipping??

Maybe he'd just read Manboy's anti-chipping manifesto/poll yesterday, which it looks like got deleted overnight?

As I have said before
"I have never chipped a route down to my level. I just give the first ascent away. I couldn't care less about the ascent. I enjoy putting the routes up.

Besides, I would need a jack hammer to get this route to my level" :shock:
