    This is m'raut 7c+ /v10.
    Small a few hundred meters above the saw mill Sector in the new guide book. Not much else there

    Zion's right. There's one point right below the climber in the pic where you need to layback without much for feet. Other than that it's a great cruiser.

    We headed to Flagstaff for a weekend wedding, found some rain and some awesome limestone climbing. Just a heads up, climbing in the rain is tough, climbing limestone in the rain is tougher, climbing limestone in the rain when you both forgot chalk is... interesting.

    Yeah, I think it's always been nicknamed the Pit. Fun climbing. I think we van camped out there too and nobody bothered us. Never made it to Paradise Forks near Flagstaff but pics I've seen look cool.

    Do you, or anyone want more? I've got a good decade of late 80's-90's climbing and rock & ice that I wouldn't feel bad getting off my shelves.

    RIP Charles Cole, inventor of Stealth rubber and founder of 5.10. Very interesting thread over on Supertopo where many of his longtime friends and legendary climbers share stories.

    Climbing Stoke

    went up north to this really small high quality crag two hours from montreal. old school lines, pretty sure Weissner was here to grade all the moderates two numbers less than anyone else would, heh.

    Confronted with the 5.10 finger crack, Trident, I also realized that I suck at crack climbing for the millionth time. We don't have that much good splitter around, so if i can't layback the shit out of a line or find constrictions for ring jams I am a little useless.

    Otherwise great weekend. Nobody around. Not bad for bugs. Easy camping. Two minute approach. A river to swim in. Cheap awesome burgers at the casse-croute. Baby led her first sport route. Interesting climbs.

    stoke pics forthcoming, here is my nemesis from mtproj:
