The Right Chimney

Shirley working the last 15-foot section near the top of pitch 1 of The Right Chimney route: 5.9 fist crack (for me); 5.9 off-width for Shirley (March 27, 2005).

Re: Guys, you rocks!

My inflatable doll and I were Couple of the Year last year. But she snagged on a rock while belaying me and rocketed away in a flatulant huff. Sob sob. I'm so lonely.

Re: Tiring

It was tiring for me (rested on gear here and there) but if you just have a tad more endurance in the forearms, you can crank about 40-50 feet of hand crack and catch your breath on a good stem rest just above crux. Then there's a good ledge above that before the final .9 fist crack (~10-15 foot) to the belay.



Having tried a "thin hands" 10c climb just this past weekend, I can say that this "10c" was a LOT MORE reasonable for me!!

Thanks for stopping by.

That's...

... a really cool shot. The foreground shoe and background road really give it some nice perspective.

Very cool shot!

Love the placement of the road and shoe in the frame... kind of a point-counterpoint thing going on there. Nice work and thanks for sharing!
