Re: Wasatch History

I've thought about it for a while, but haven't had the time...work keeps me busy. For now I try to post up stuff on utahclimbers.com. It's helpful to have climbers of all generations record their most important climbs. Nate Smith did a lot of research while working on his guide. The climbers of the ...

Re: Help, I'm a tard and can't post photos

Ok, I found a 3rd party photo hosting site to replace Photobucket (the extortionists!) I'm using Flickr, a free photohosting site. It's easy to sign in, once you have your photo downloaded, left click on the photo, then click on the curved arrow (bottom right) and then copy the address. (must have u...

Re: your mp moment of zen...

Late for Dinner, 5.6 is the most moderate route in AF, it's in the Hard Rock area. It's perhaps my most proud FA down there. Recently this came to light about the approach... "great place to climb with slits and pockets in the limestone. did not like the approach and trail needs to be put in be...

Re: Ice and snow pics

Correct, it's just up canyon from the Wave Wall. The climber in orange, is my brother Jonathan. These falls were my first steep ice leads (1977). Near the top of the pillar, I took a 15' plunge when my humming bird ice tool popped out...my first (but not the last!) fall on ice. These ice falls were ...

Re: your mp moment of zen...

Jonathan and I have added some SS bolts here. Over the last 25 years, the ground creep and weathering has lowered the base a few feet. This made the first bolt even higher off the ground. After reading the above posts, you'd think the new bolts don't help much but they do. You just need someone who ...

Re: Trip Reports

That's right! I've got to get a selfie stick. So I was in the up stairs section of the gym doing my usual light workout / warm ups...doing these post surgery pushups where my knees touch the ground. A friend of mine was teasing me about doing "girly pushups"....yet as you mentioned, there ...
