Comments: Adventures like these take a great hit when everything gets bolted. Sure more people climb them. But a solid portion of the remoteness that atracts them is removed from the equation.

I've not climbed here yet. I was browsing this area on MP, and happened apon this discussion.

I do live in Vegas, and I do appreciate the difference between a Jay Smith bolt and a Yaniro pocket.

Realistically, Vegas is crazy.

Comments: I can't imagine what you learn about yourself, or where you go mentally to be alone for 40 days and nights, tinkering with climbings most focused form of minutia...sounds biblical...laughing. A hearty adventure in a great wasteland.

Comments: Loved this route. Climbed with standard rack to old #3 Camalot, and one old 4.5 Camalot.

If I went back, I would climb it with no wide gear, as the crack on the inside would suffice if you were in send mode.

I found the OW to be pretty tame with a knee bar. More like 10-?????

Comments: I just took my first trip here. I wanted to praise Marty Lewis for releasing a superb guide (imho). I found it very clear, concise, and ontop of the area.

I consider myself a climbing geek, and fairly well-travelled. This guide was probably one of the better organised guides I have ever used, and well worth the money.

Nice job sir.

Comments: Waaaaaaaay out of character to call this 10d...especially in Red Rocks. I was told it was 11c and didn't argue after I had climbed it?

So call it 5.11 and have a great time on it, fun route!

Comments: Aged with grace...proudest comment ever. Congrats to all of us for not roughing her up.

Climbed this today in 5 stretchers, no simul climbing. Rack standard with extra 2 and 3 old BD cam, no 4.

Rappelled Hot point not Burlesque.

Wonderful outing...full value for the grade. Tone down Steck/Salathe and morph it with East Butt of Middle Cathedral was my thought as I climbed.

Superb route. Kudos to FA team.
