Monday I went to the Park with Chad Greedy and Luke Parady. Chad has put some effort into cleaning an awesome arete just up the hill from Dead Racoon. The line is a striking knife blade over a very poor landing. A fall from the top portion would have dire consequences.

Chad had top roped the line a few times, but seemed rightfully nervous before trying it without a rope. He backed off several times. After a few attempts, Chad seemed to realize now was the time, climbed to his previous high point and shut his mind for the the top. I have no interest personally in climbing such a problem, but I think it is awesome that Chad stuck his neck out for this one. Well Done! Chad and I played rock-paper-scissors to decided that name, and it is Blade of Glory V7. Check out the pics.

    for a decent story about it, click on Michael Rathke which is the one above Daniel Woods-

    and speaking of D dubs, some dude commented on my youtube profile arguing that daniel woods is not the best rock climber in the world because he has not sent a 5’15. I was like fine dipsnot, nobody is the best in the world at rock climbing cuz I will destroy anyone in Grand Ledge if they want to try and climb with the King of GL.
