Hope the new guide book adds some traffic. (Did Wire Crack make it in?) Can't help but wonder if pulling those bolts afected traffic in the exact way Dr. Frimer's always worried about. Food for thought.
Yes, Wire Crack made it into the new Squamish Select Guide. Hopefully some dry weather will see lots of traffic to the Wire Tap area. I haven't been on it yet, but it is very high on my "upcoming tick list".
Thriller on the Pillar is well worth doing too (can rap with a single 60).
Area seems to moss over pretty quick and there is definitely room for new routes.
After climbing pitch 3 we suggest restoring a bolt midway through the flaring section. The odd are that many climbers will not have two #3s since the printed guide books say only bring doubles for #2s. The flare is shallow (no jam well), wider than a fist, and lengthy. A fall on ify gear could be serious. Most climbers will be onsighting it and not Have the benefit of climbing it several times. For a climb that is so close to the climbers cam it should be busy but it's not. No on was there the day we climbed it. Not much traffic given the moss.
If someone does. It want agree with a boot, don't clip it. But this is a wider community than 5.11 climbers.
