The only reason I haven't been opening new lines might be that I can no longer fit into the leg loops of my harness... Too much skiing--and eating!

The horizontal crack was divine. There is just something about pounding pins and knowing they are as bomber as any bolt. The rock quality was amazing. Troys pitch was still good. but the cracks didnt link all the way to the top, but rad none the less.

Tea, I heard you were down and out. Let me know when you need a 12 pack of Good Will and Joy along with some bullshit company.
I'd rather watch movie stars get fat!

The trouble is, they are adjustable--I've had to take them out twice this season, already! Do I sound like a chick?

I don't know about sounding like a chick. Maybe... My roommate (the female one, not JK) and I had a discussion about adjustable leg loops not too long ago. Maybe it's an Asian thing. You do have nice shiny hair for a dude for sure, though. What hair products do you use?

Cool looking route, I too have noticed that line...for well, decades.

Why didn't you keep following the crack?

After traversing for a bit, there is a straight in, tasty thin splitter that goes to the top. Much better looking than traversing for a long time. Afterwards, we both agreed that it is most likely the most enjoyable way. We plan on going back and finishing the traverse along with replacing some shiny hangers when the temps warm up.
