Stairway shooting gallery

FWIW, it's not my handywork. And no question--it's a big freaking hazard. Those top pitches get a lot of sun in the p.m. Either it touches down and gets climbable (I hope), or it breaks off and rattles down to the 1st pitch apron. And yeah, it'll resemble a cluster bomb. Even if it does touch down a...

DK--in the interest of accuracy for the new guidebook I gotta say Final Sound aint 13a. I may be old and weak, but I've never sent a 13a that had three credit-card crimper moves in a row.

Limestone Cowboy (rt. of Monkey Brains) is dry. So is Apetizer. The Grid routes are mostly dry ( a moist pocket here or there) and almost too hot with this weather. The cave is now snow-free, and the Pickle looks climbable.

The season is over, but for farming this fall a few hard-earned lessons: 1. A very small amount of water is needed. The stuff we were farming in Provo this year got too huge and fell down. On the other hand, you gotta keep a steady spray or the pipes wil freeze. It's a fine line. 2. Start the water ...

Style counts, as do facts. So here's the straight dope. The route name is Wrist Rocket. I bouldered it, after top-rope rehearsal, in Fall 2000. I was working on Triple Threat with my friend Howie. I thought "why not surf out here to this arete and do that instead." I brushed all the scabby flakes of...
