Chrysler Crack

"Bob Thumb" leads the classic finger crack "Chrysler Crack" at sandstone quarry. Note the #1 cam he will use to protect the crux.

--Not really. Climber is Big Bob Harrington, and he's racked a #12 Valley Giant for this 6" to 12" crack.

Huge cams!

They look bigger than #6 BD, is there a bigger one? Bring out the big bro, nice!

#12 Valley Giant

Tip-to-tip 12 inches when expanded. The tiny red cam behind it is a #6 Wild Country.

great shot!

there's a shot of Roxanna Brock leading this in her new guidebook. Looks like a stellar route & atypical of Red Rocks (smooth, clean looking splitter-type crack)?

would #4 Big Bros work?

Re: great shot!

#3 and #4 Big Bros are good. If you own one, a #5 bro could actually be placed up higher, but is not really needed after you move into the crack.

dodge caliber

A lot more vehicle recalls, this time it is on the 2007 Dodge Caliber because of a sticky gas pedal problem. The Chrysler Group, who is the owner of Dodge, has given a voluntary recall of the autos gas pedals, and it has reported they feel they could filter it down to what months the defective pedals were manufactured in. However if you own a Dodge Caliber just bring it in to a dealership to have a free inspection on your pedals. Also when you have had any problems with sticky gas pedals feel free to report the dilemma to NHTSA.
