Hung, to be perfectly honest, my reaction was prompted far more by the curt nature of the proprietary FA claim than anything else. There is a lot more work to be done at River's Bend than grabbing credit for another new route- like trailwork, maybe. I'd like to get your thoughts on finding the best line for the trail to that area that could still be used when the river comes up as it usually does in the winter, which of course is the best season for that wall.

And has anyone done anything about that travesty of a cable rail leading to the furthest downriver routes, yet? More work for the clean-up crew, I guess... everyone else must be too busy posting to their blogs.

I've got a group coming in for a half-day the first week in April, and am hoping to use them to shore up the erosion zone at the base of Castaways, before we lose that tree as well as the leaning monster and the dead hemlock on the trail to Aqualung. If you and some of the folks from the District could make it down, I'd be available any time that week and the next, but after that I'll be pretty tied up with work until the Traildaze event. Let me know what works for you... there's always plenty to do.

Climb on-


p.s. you should check out the two new routes between Lunar Debris and Squeal Like a Pig on the Parking lot wall. The route R of Lunar Debris is a bouldery moderate, the line L of SLAP is harder, and it would be great to get some consensus on the grades. I don't think anyone has climbed either besides MF and myself repeating each once after the FA.
