Comments: Consider either top-roping this route to clean it or clean while lowering. It's quite dangerous to clean on rappel due to the slanting nature of the climb. I keep watching people do this, and it's quite unnerving.

Comments: This route feels 2 letter grades harder than Pockets of Dirt (the one to the left). It's more solid now.

Comments: The well chalked route to down the talus to the left of Wings of Desire (if you're looking at the wall). Stay right for 10b, go left around the 3rd or 4th bolt for 11a. Be aware that clipping the last bolt on the 10b requires a rather committing move off a ledge. The moves are all there, but you better have your lead head on if this climb is at your limit!

Comments: Park in the upper lot and follow the signs. Do not park in the lower lot and walk past the Fortress or you will be doing a lot of extra walking!

Comments: The new parking is at the end of Smyth Road on the east side of the lake. If you drive around the lake, you'll see a sign for Skaha Bluffs. Follow Smyth Rd up the hill. Park at the lower parking for the Fortress, Doctor's Wall and all climbing beyond that. Park at the upper lot for the Great White Wall, The Belfry and other climbing areas in the vicinity.

Comments: I finally got to do this route! Thanks to Andy for finding me a great partner who could lead the hard trad pitches. I did layback the majority of the Split Pillar while seconding. Once it widened past red cams, I couldn't jam. I was able to rest here and there, but I'm not sure I could have placed gear.

Also, I lead pitch 3 and was too short to reach the bolts on the bolt ladder. I got the first one, barely, but couldn't clip the second. I'm only 5'0", but if shorter women are looking to ... more >>

Comments: If Churning is 13a then this is 13b for sure. That's what it's rated in the newest Smith guidebook.

Comments: Yep, I'm 5 foot even and did the crux of the 12a part without any high heel hook. I just locked off those crimpers, brought my feet up and grabbed the rail. It wasn't even dynamic. I haven't been on the upper section yet though.

Comments: I did this route when it first went in and it was ok. Now some holds have broken at the crux but the real issue is the mega-choss at the top. I pulled off a fist sized hold and many smaller ones. Definitely the worst route on the left side of the corridor.

Comments: Thanks, Sam. You're awesome. I'm sure it will be very appreciated by future parties. Here's what my partner and I did to bypass it- thanks to Mountain Project and everyone for preparing me!

Comments: I just did this route yesterday and indeed the second bolt on the first bolt ladder was missing. Fortunately, I read the comments before I headed out there and brought my stick clip. I was incredibly happy to have it. The climbing where the bolt is missing is not trivial and now it is quite dangerous because the route is rated 5.9 A0. If a 5.9 leader heads up there and attempts to free climb these moves, they will likely fall, hit the ledge and possibly break an ankle. Someone will eventual... more >>

Comments: How much of a true "tower" is this? I'm wondering if I should bring my hula hoop. I'm looking to hula hoop on top of various towers and spires. Thanks.

Comments: Anyone do this route and Jah Man? I did Jah Man, leading all pitches with no problem and I was wondering if the squeeze chimney on this is any harder than the squeeze chimney on that. Thanks for any info.

Comments: I'd believe it- if you're 5'0" I can't see any way you could get up to those underclings in the roof and that's not even the crux!

Comments: Being short, I actually found the crux right at the bottom of the overhang (around the 4th bolt- oh and clipping that bolt is really hard if you're short too!). The top was easy.
