    +1 on a choss-centric forum, I for one would happily share some stoke on here instead of the proj. I appreciate the database section of that site but would love to see the forums go away. The average user has the sensitivity of an overweight teenage girl forced to go to the pool and opinions strong enough to put bolts in. The moderation has been getting heavier this last year and some mods are extremely trigger happy about following "guideline #1"...

    A few oldies, I hope we don't plan on discriminating against bouldering/sport/ice?

    While up on Hood a couple weeks ago, I was thinking about a few trip reports in the past with people skiing up to illumination rock and climbing what is essentially a semi solid pile of scree and dirt -


    I never had a problem with the runout 5.12 on trad gear in the gunks, but I wouldn't climb Illum rock with a gun to my head. This is good trip report from such a mission.

    Do you seriously think that would stop them?

    Those shrub placements come in handy when things get too runout...

    So I am stuck visiting for a month in northern Ontario . Instead of pouting and sitting on my ass we have been establishing some climbing. Banging first ascents and naming shit is pretty cool and humbling . Cleaning rroutes is way more work than I wouldhave thought .

    Boulders

    Yep. It's that rarely done 12a all the way to the left of the crag, really good. And yes, same handle as on MP.

    all the recent activity was posted before the new subforum. Maybe move the threads? This is the best climbing thread I recall, if anything the whole thing should be moved.

    A perfect fall day in the Collusium at the NRG, Lake Haiyaha near LCC in RMNP sometime during second week in August (I think?), Beginning of the End v11 at Cooper's Rock, WV, and Venus in Scorpio v11 in the Gunks, respectively. Doesn't get much better than climbing in the gorge with perfect temps.

    Cool stuff, man, and welcome to TGR.

    I've only been climbing for a little while, but I certainly have the bug. I would love to get to the New one day soon.

    Do it. I flew out there last month to visit some friends and play on the gauley river. Got 4 days of climbing in and just about every climb was classic. I also barely scratched the surface. Bring lots of chalk, I used more chalk there in 4 days than I'd use in a few months in CO.

    What he said. It's as close as I have to a home crag and until mid-December I try to get there almost every weekend. There's endless classic lines however I do find the quality of climbing drops off dramatically when you get below 5.10. There is so much developing going on here in regards to sport, trad, and bouldering that its pretty staggering. If you ever decide to make the journey give me a shout on here. Always down to show new folk around these hills.

    The Knife Edge of the Shield, Sandia Mountains, NM. Awesome ridge run, then you get to this part in the viddy, the 'W"...... About 1000 foot drop to climbers right, 800 feet to the left. Bluebird weather for sure!

    With the first tour of season yesterday, I figure the meat of climbing season has come to a close. Bummer, we were still pretty motivated after last weekend. Great year with a few desert trips, alpine ice and rock, and plenty of Eldo classics.
