Ticks That Don’t Bite, But Make The Eyes Sore

This shot was taken on the day before New Year’s eve by our friend Olivia and shows what NOT to do… walk away leaving one’s chalk detritus visible. The line is called Slash BabyFace, v0, and is a stellar line with two moderates exiting left or up and left. It’s pretty standard practice amongst outside climbers to brush tick marks off.

The photo doesn’t do the scene much justice, but I think you get the point. Buy a brush, or search the lost ‘n found at your local gym. They’re handy for more than just removing tick marks.
