The question of the day is: Whaz’up with the friggin anchors at Mossy Ledges?! Between the last climb we did there (Pussy Nuts - no anchors!), this climb, and the one I’ll post tomorrow - damn...
But we did take care of some unfinished business (after the unexpected walk-off last time) - knocking out the rest of the 5.7s on this wall...
THE WTF 5.7 TOUR: Red Rock Canyon
WALL: Mossy Ledges
CLIMB: Secret Ingredient
Ok, random thought — for the life of me, I cannot retain the name of this climb (see the video in stories and on the summary page), I have looked at this name a ton of times, written it down a bunch, and then when I need to Recall it again - blank, crickets... What’s it called again?!
Here’s the main points of this climb:
+ It’s fun. It’s interesting.
+ It’s 140 feet and I broke it into two pitches and I’m hella glad I did because rope drag would’ve really sucked through a barely protectable section beneath the roof (photo 2) AND an ~15 ft traverse to newer anchors.
+ It takes bigger pro than the smalls and mediums cited - glad I had a number 3 and 4.
+ And, the anchors on this climb are rusty mixed metal 1/4” pieces of crap we’d rather avoid - which is why I traversed over to some new anchors we saw on the face to the left.
In case ya’ want more there’s a new post with info at:
Tomorrow - Roberto Duran
Oh and rain in Red Rock Wednesday and Thursday this week (Nov 20-21) allow 24-48 to dry! Plus it’s cooler so it won’t dry as fast. 👍 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
