When you reach the top, keep climbing -- Zen proverb
-First pitch of Two Rats and a Titmouse(CoWM starts of the groove on the right and steps onto the Arete at the 5th bolt.)
-P.Y. jams up the 2nd pitch of CoWM (TR&aTM steps to the right side of the Arete from the belay and pads up sustained 10+*super quality*)
-CoWM Direct finish 10+ granite face climbing*super quality* (Corner on the right is the .11- final pitch to TR&aTM *technical face climbing*)
Cream Direct- 8 quick draws and a light rack to 2"
Two Rats and a Titmouse- 12 quick draws

Well when an engineering test commissioned by Barley himself resulted in a mean failure of 2kN on his staples, I'd certainly like to know what (staple) routes to avoid....even if they are the "new and improved" Barley staples.J Mace wrote:Go whine about staples somewhere else...
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all of RB's work and do enjoy the majority of his routes. But putting his arrogance/ignorance ahead of the safety of our community by ignoring common and accepted practices...yes please whine away.
DON'T CLIMB ON STAPLES!!!!!!
