Hey MoPk, like this original Beckey anchor on P3 of his Premier Route at the WP??
(Oct 1994)


Actually, that anchor looks comparatively good! Looks like the roots have good penetration in the rock.

And the following is better than one might suppose...

Jeez, that Zombie kid looks and sounds frighteningly like some of the local kids I work with from time to time.
Good ol' weird Portland. :lol:

What an interesting thread.

I believe the issue is that the two camps (The Chief and everyone else) are talking about two different subjects.

The Chief is talking about cragging, albeit in a mountain setting. Everyone else is talking about mountaineering.
