The Golden Rule.

<11.24.07> Secrets of the Beehive Area, Bishop, CA. Kevin Jorgeson on the First Ascent of "The Golden Rule." X.
Kevin took me up to this boulder he had cleaned the day before, and off course, it was small. He placed a couple pieces on the way up, well because, you know, in case. The first piece goes in around 30 feet in a face crack up and right from the arete. (see first photo)
Yeah, I know. Afterwards, Kev belayed me on top-rope so i could work out the moves. I got pumped and had him "take" far before the first piece even goes in. Burrrrr!!!!!

Kevin finally shows his true colors and gives up bouldering in exchange for plugging his gear in cracks.

unless this shiz is v14+++ i fully expect kj to repeat is in proper style: as a boulder problem... thereby nullifying its existance as a 'trad' line and demoting these photos to mere pre-valid send 'headpointing'.


bwahahahahahahaaa



[in reality: that line looks INSANE! NICE JOB JORGESON!]
