Comments: Super fun sustained face climbing. Though a little runout, a fall would be clean as there are no ledges to hit. One nut placement 2/3rds of the way up was a comforting supplement to the fixed gear.

Two ropes needed for rap.

Comments: It's funny how from a distance the ravine floor looks smooth and grassy, then when you get there it's actually gnarly bushwhacking on top of a boulder field.

Comments: This is a fairly straight forward, moderate aid route at 5.7 C2.

I was glad to have a double set of nuts and a double set of cams to #1 C4, and one #2. Nothing bigger needed. I've heard micronuts and micro-offsets recommended, but I only felt the need to place one brass offset on the way up to the roof. A pink tricam was useful, as were a few spare slings for slinging flakes about halfway up. Save some finger size pieces for the gear anchor above the roof.

Even with all this I stil... more >>

Comments: Were you on this route today?

I may have spoken with you from the ground after taking a detour on my way down from the Prow.

If so, good on you for getting out, despite all the wetness.

Comments: Just climbed this today. I'd agree that it's at least as good as Standard. Less crowded too.

Comments: I felt like it was much easier to boulder, gear just took up the good locks.Very secure up high and for the top-out

Comments: Climbed this yesterday and Reppy's is my new favorite pitch. I felt like a single #3 Camalot would have been sufficient and the #3.5/4 was only really useful below the Finger. There's lots of small constrictions in Reppy's where other gear can be used.

There was some fresh rockfall just left of Reppy's. Art Mooney told my partner that it came off the original start in the last few days and may have altered that pitch significantly.

Thanks for sharing, Brad. I might never go to a lot of these places but I enjoy reading about them.

Comments: Cool. I'll be sure to post up after I get a chance to do some cleaning and take some pictures. I have a few places in mind that might be worthwhile.

Comments: So, what's the consensus on documenting climbs in this area? I've found a few fun cracks but I'm debating if they should be left for people to discover by themselves. I'm going to assume they've been climbed before I found them.

Comments: That sounds right. The road has been pretty wet the last few weeks, but if you keep following it you'll come to a swamp that visible on your left. Take a left off the road and bushwhack into the woods before you get to the swamp.

Comments: Yeah, Lost in the Sun (5.5) and Bore Tide (5.6). Each is 6-8 pitches or so. You park at the Willey Slide turn out, cross the river and wander up to the Slabs on Mt. Webster. You can find directions and a topo at NEClimbs.

I climbed Lost in the Sun in October '07 as my first decent multipitch trad climb. It was a good experience, and with more efficiency than I had at the time you could bag both routes in a day easily. All the belays are bolted and you'll only need a light rack. You will need t... more >>

Comments: For some good grovely fun, chimney up toward the back, then top out by squirming out the hole at the top formed by big chockstones. Don't get stuck.

Comments: Lots of fun! My first 5.8 lead and it felt pretty secure. I found doubles of .5 to 1 useful, as well as a single #2, but I'm sure it could be done with less by those more comfortable with the grade.
