Comments: This is my favorite route to date! For anyone who loves exposure, you have to do this climb. Pitch 3 was AMAZING!

Comments: ha ha, contrived is right. I knew nothing about this route when I climbed it and was all over the opposing wall. Thought it felt about 5.7 that way.... barefoot (don't worry I cleaned every foothold on my way down) ; )

Comments: This route was really fun with great movement. I found plenty hands and feet all the way up. I agree there is some tricky footwork, and a few balancy moves. I wonder how long that really sharp two finger hold in the middle of the route will last : ) That missing could make things a bit harder!

Comments: This climb is really fun! That being said, it kicked my ass. (On TR!) I "climbed" the beginning 3 different ways. Arete on definitely seemed the most feesible. Straight up the face is really hard with no hands and greasy feet. Using the crack to the left is significantly easier, prob more like 5.10a.

Comments: This climb humbled me.... a few tricky moves that made me swear. The offwidth was fun.
Edit: Ditto what Stan said!

Comments: This has apparently been upgraded to 511.a do to greasy rock. 5.11 feels about right. The crux is very well protected, but yes, greasy! Really fun moves. There is a loose hold at the top that seems like it will hold for a while, but be careful.

WTF? Someone find a whole 200 extra miles somewhere?? Don't ask the ranger about it, apparently a touchy subject : )

Comments: Probably not a good lead for a new 5.7 leader, as it feels harder than that. Esp considering the crux is the start. Mostly climbs the face.

Comments: This is one of my favorite climbs. Thought provoking and balancy moves on thin egdes. Good place to work on footwork and grace : )

Comments: I agree. The crux section of this is quite thin. Gotta trust your feet. I would call it a 5.9+ : )
