Comments: Seems like taking draws off of projects is becoming the norm here. I had my draws taken off of Carnage this weekend.

Comments: What is the rating of the steep route with the fixed-chain draws? and the route to the right of it?

They both look like nice routes.

Comments: I pulled off the big clipping hold over the bulge. Now you have to clip off of the sloper undercling or the sideways dyno hold, and then go from there all the way up to the two finger pockets. It feels quite a bit harder to me.

Comments: There is a 3 or 4 bolt extension to this that goes at 12a and is called Blue and Black.

Comments: The moniker in the new guide is "Another 5.14". A good juggy route that has cleaned up pretty well.

Comments: Jacob, both are true. You can pick up a permit at the visitor center and the chalk at Mt. Chalet.

Comments: P1 and P2 can be combined without rope drag being a concern.

Comments: Yes, a 70m will just get you down, but make sure to tie a note at the end of the rope since not all 70m ropes are actually 70m.

Comments: The crux pitch would be 11c if it were a sport route.

We took the wrong gully into oak creek and ended up doing six or so rappels. We obviously were not the first people to take this gully since we were rapping off of old cams for several of the raps.

Comments: From the ground, this doesn't look like much, but it sure is some fun climbing.

Comments: I've been meaning to go back and add a bolt, so if you were to blow it at the crux you wouldn't deck on the slab below. If someone gets to it before me, you are more than welcome to add one and only one bolt where it is needed.

Comments: The guidebook rating of 11c/d refers to the climb to climber's right, which is certainly that grade. This climb can often be distinguished from the constant supply of leaver biners on the last bolt.

Comments: Chimney Rock is an excellent granite spire in North Idaho between Priest Lake and Sandpoint. The rock has three to four pitch routes on close to Yosemite quality splitters.

It has a bit of an approach, which keeps away a bit of the rift-raft.

Comments: The upper pitch can be stemmed and climbed without a single jam, which feels much less burly.

Comments: I would bring two #5 and #6 Camalots.

I was able to face climb this to a great degree and avoid most of the true off-width moves.

Comments: One 60M rope will probably leave you short on the first rap from the top since we needed a little rope stretch with a 70M to make it. The rest of the raps should be fine.

Comments: Originally called this the "Full Meal Deal" to honor Ike, but somehow the name was lost in translation when I gave Stew Green the details of it for his Rock and Ice article.

I like Stew's name for it better than the original.

Comments: The last pitch is not worth climbing unless you really want to warm back up in the sun. Pulling the ropes from this first rappel was quite difficult. We rapped off the tree to the right of the gully with all of the slings. Maybe you could find a better option that would make pulling the ropes reasonable.

With two 70M ropes you can get down in 4.5 more raps.
1. From the cave at the top of the Red Dihedral to the ledge at the bottom of the Dihedral
2.To the big ledge finish of pitch 6
