No answers to your questions from me Dana, but looking at this thread it would seem to be a pretty good fit in an expanded (and permanent) route coverage section of the board, as Evan has proposed for his next round of upgrades. Even if people don't want beta on a route I'm sure no one could argue with the idea of being provided with a little trivia about what they're climbing.
So long as you can boogie you ain't too old.

I only know the last one.
To paraphrase, something like "Courtney Cox is hot".
(not that there's anything wrong with that...sorta)

"L.P." stands for Lonely Penis.

edited to add: and the first pitch of L.P. is fun and worth doing. Second pitch looks cool, but I saw a 5-6 foot black snake slithering down it one day, so haven't been in a hurry to try it.

In the '72 guide the second pitch of L.P. is depicted as trending up and right. I tried that many years ago, and it was the loosest section of rock I've ever climbed on, anywhere. Is that what you mean? If so, go back, you'll be killed.

Did the first pitch of LP last year and it was really good, but a bit scary...Thin in the begining (Hard moves for 8) and your first piece is about 18feet off the deck. Didn't even consider p2. .............Seems to me that this section of the cliff has some fairly stiff climbs for the grade and the pros not usually too closely spaced. Not quite that far down also did that was exciting!
