How many routes
did you put up before you got the
five or six, I think.
How many new
routes have you done?
In what areas
are these new routes?
the majority are in
the Marsupials, but the only area
where I haven't put up routes are
the Red Wall, Monkey Face and
the Upper Gorge.
I've hit every crag
What is your
favorite area and route that you've
Ryan: The Marsupials
is my favorite
area, and favorite route...my favorite
hard -- like 5.11 -- route that I've put
up is probably Holier Than Thou
(5.11b) on the West Side Crags. It
starts off a ledge above Manic Nirvana.
That's a really good climb.
Do you do Manic
Nirvana to get up to it?
yeah, a variation off it.
My favorite aid climb -- because
I've also done some aid climbing --
is a climb called Knuckledraggers Anonymous, up on Broken Spire
and left of the Great Roof; it's an
A3+ X. That's a pretty cool climb...
and my favorite moderate sport
climb is probably Lusty Lady,
which is up on the Mudpile, behind
Delirium Tremens. It's a full rope
length 5.8 and really nice.
As far as when
you put up routes...I know that
there's been some controversy
