Ok, I'm sorry but I have to say something. I have bitten my lip long enough.

How many of these threads do we have to endure. Time after time we see these photos of unroped, unprotected climbers risking their lives for a little glory. I know all the awe and positive feedback you have received here seems to validate your actions but do the risks of a free solo really outweigh the rewards.

Showing something like this only encourages more of this reckless behavior. Next thing we know you will be attempting hawkeye point without even a helmet. (just noticed no helmet here either shame on you)

The next time you go up something like this I want to see at least 3 points of bomber pro on a/and a rope young man.

(Things are a little slow here at work again.) :lol:

Coming in at #97 is 36' Big Cockroach Mound.


Obviously the 300 foot rule doesn't apply in Florida.

That was hilarious! Thanks for the TR!

After living in Florida for most of my life, I am embarrassed to admit I have not been there. Nor have I been to any of the Florida Centennial Peaks. I was too skeered to venture much past sea level.

You da man!

It looks like you needed to bushwack across at least several inches of delicate wildlife on the final pitch. Do you realize that it will take at least 2 days for those 6 blades of grass to recover from your selfish intrusion? DO YOU?

How can you sleep at night? :roll:

The glissade possibilities are marginal, at best. Might work with Kevlar pants, though.

LOL!

Although ... the bump by the tree on the left looks a little higher. Obviously you'd have to start back at the parking lot because the saddle in between doesn't look like it dips down enough to get credit for both peaks w/o a re-summit.

I've actually climbed #100, turtle mound. Man was that a hairy adventure. You could say that turtle mound is the lizard head of florida. Glad I got out of that one alive...
