We got out to Shelf Road last weekend for a chance at climbing the classic $#!+house Traverse. A good time was had by all. More to come in a day or two.

ERICA F. ROGERS - Well there, Johnny Traverse, I think "Rich history lies at the shit house" and "You need to pop this thing out" were my favorite lines from this fine film bound with fibrous humor and a certain fecality not found in ordinary climbing films. Well done!January 19, 2010 – 4:24 am

Ron Propri - Nice work, Eli. Worthy of the Triple Brown brand (nice logo, btw).January 19, 2010 – 9:08 am

Adam - Awesome, man. It's a good thing we avoided the lines at the shithouse last weekend. Your videos are getting more and more professional. Though it's a funny subject, I'm amazed how you made such a compelling story – that's the real talent.January 19, 2010 – 10:06 am

kris - Nice ascent, guys! You know, while visiting Shelf I got up close and personal with the $#!+house traverse Formation on a regular basis (at least once a day). It always had an intimidating presence and I could never muster the courage to press it out. Now with the beta I can go back and wipe it clean off my list!January 19, 2010 – 10:50 am

Carl - You never know where or for that matter when inspiration will come and knock on your door. My path is now illuminated. Shithousing, right on! Repeats, like the Shelf Shithouse, are on my list but the FA potential is huge. I'm checking Google Maps for rest stop, picnic areas, NF campgrounds, etc. and packing the car now. Don't need much it seems, just a bunch of beer. Thanks Eli and Adam.January 19, 2010 – 11:20 am

Sara Konecky - Ew, Kris! Funny, guys!!January 19, 2010 – 4:11 pm

Stephen - Adam its all about the O.G. Shit direct start to traverse!
Good Stuff!January 19, 2010 – 4:37 pm

Justin - Epic! Its every climbers dream to one day send such a world class route. Nicely done.January 20, 2010 – 2:02 pm
