Comments: You might want to add Andrew's partner to the f.a. info, to make it a complete entry. On the 2nd ascent we had a goal, along with completing the route, of cleaning off some loose stuff and fixing the first belay. I think I'd have struggled a bit more if the last pitch were truly 10, but time will tell, I guess. A great route, I thought.

Comments: No ice skates with you? Nice pic of a unique part of the RR Canyon. Looks like a memorable day.

Comments: Looks like it was a cold windy night... for a hot desert locale I sure have frozen my ass off more than once in RR Canyon. A great pic, part of the enjoyment of which is that, as you are taking it, you are in the sun! Yea!!

Comments: A few feet above the fixed baby angle, above the roofs, one can also break out right onto the slightly overhanging face and gain a ledge with a two bolts and chains. It's steep but juggy until the last few moves.

Comments: From the summit register it would appear that the first and second ascent parties were there on the same day, more or less together... call it one ascent, or call it two, whatever makes sense to you.
Paul Horton and I made another ascent on April 6, 2013, replacing the rap slings on the way down. They were badly hammered from sun exposure, as you would expect. We found the climb a rewarding and engaging intro to technical routes here in the Swell. The first pitch would have been a little ... more >>

Comments: Nice shot... my favorite pitch on the route, right over the Window. Too often people climb around to the side and miss this spectacular but pretty easy stretch.

Comments: Paul, I thought it might be something like that, an upcoming trip... glad not to be 'snowing' on your parade! It does happen... even in the Mojave. Have a great trip. I miss daily access to RR climbing...

Comments: This was the big storm that rolled through in Dec. '08. Seems like it put down about 16"-18" on the flats.

Comments: We went back and summited two weeks ago... maybe I'll come up with some more info and a photo or two, when the weather gets crappy. Thanks, G/G, it was fun to get the shot but the fun ended there, that day.

Comments: The rock? Hmmm, laughable... volcanic brecchia.
And we got stormed off, have to go back.

Comments: The first two pitches are forgettable. The last pitch is stellar. Perhaps do Dihedral of Horrors, then rap down and do this last pitch. A good day.

Comments: Don't be discouraged by the mossy/junky looking start to the third pitch. You can work around the vegetation without disturbing it, or you.

Comments: A nice shot that also reveals some serious air quality problems. Reminds of a view from a RR summit, looking out towards Vegas....

Comments: We down climbed to the saddle on the east side of the peak, as described in the guidebook, belaying the pitch that reached that notch, then descended south, on the east side of the arete, to reach the base and start of the route. We didn't like the wet/snowy descent to the north and would recommend at least looking at this option.

Comments: We were actively looking for the finishing crux crack but still missed it... very typical Teton route finding issues. Many choices, not an obvious unmistakeable line. This is a good route well worth doing.

Comments: The extensive retro-bolting of CC has certainly changed the nature of the route. Earlier, a climber was more or less wedded to the crack, wide or not, if he/she wanted pro. Now... as Jorge Urioste put it, "it's a forest of bolts" up there. Having said that, it's still a wonderful climb.
