A back east question
Does Super Conduction on the Sun Wall at Looking Glass, NC go clean or should I begin practicing my pin work? It is rated IV, 5.7 A2(3) in the old Kelley book

PS I have RP's, HB offsets, DMM peenuts, Alien hybrids, double small range Metolius, four pink tricams...

I'd be all for doing Glass Menagerie in November.

I don't have the thin stuff, but I've got a THICK freeclimbing rack, and all the aid gear. Let me know if you're up for it!

There was an article in Rock and Ice with a bunch of supertopos for Looking Glass. It might have been in there. If it was it would likely have an up to date gear list.

Was that the Jeb Tilly article from some time ago? It lives as a cutout in my Kelley book. All free moderates. Will try to do an article search on R&I.

This article had some topos for hard climbs. One was A4 or A4+ can't remember. I just remember thinking that the place looked pretty sweet! This couldn't have been too long ago. Just email someone at supertopo or at rock and ice. They ought to be able to tell you which issue.

http://www.southeastclimbing.com/...h_carolina.htm#super This web page says it goes at III-IV 5.7 C2 but you should bring a few small to medium angles and some KB's in case some fixed gear isn't there.

YES. In a heartbeat. There's two other guys up here in DC on the local list who are interested too. If two teams do it in a row, there could be some pretty rad photos in the deal. (first team's cleaner photographing second team's leader, good angles)

I did the Menagerie a few years ago. I'm happy to provide some beta to anyone interested.
