Comments: Just did this route a week ago. One of the best in the area. So classic. Remember to pass the pitons and go to the two nice solid bolts for the end of the first pitch, and its a comfy place to sit and watch the leader climb the second pitch. For the third pitch I would highly recommend the 5.8 hand crack. You start going towards the right chimney and then youll see it on your right. So fun and classic.

Comments: A great and classic route. just so your aware the final traverse is ballzy for the leader and second. The traverse when my brother climbed it was protected with a micro nut. Bring webbing for the top anchor to tie off the eye bolts, they stick out and you don't want to put extra force by threading the rope threw the eye of the bolt. A great climb and super fun.

Comments: If your in the parking lot, why not? It's an awesome summit and a very cool move to get on the summit. Its really easy but cool. bring a couple of slings, a tcu or two, a couple of nuts a mid sized cam.

Comments: Just climbed this route and the start is great. It is not to polished and it is very crimpy, in a good way. I really didn't notice that the second bolt was placed awkardly because of the rockfall, so I don't know. Anyways this is a great route and comes highly recommended.

The start and finish are the cruxes in my opinion, and no I don't believe it is a number grade harder because of the rock fall.

And this climb is very well bolted for anyone who is wondering. Have fun.

Comments: Just went to casket this last weekend 2/15/09 and this climb is a full WI climb(something like the big blue so WI3-5, depends where you climb it), until the crack at the top. This and the Big Blue are the only good ice in at this point in the year.

Comments: This climb is classic and a must do. The crux is coming out of the cave/ hole in the route but is protectable.

When your on top of this climb you can then go down a tree rooted gully (easy, not to sketchy) or you could do kind of a second pitch and climb Sentinel Crack which starts on the just on top and to the left of Lost Ego. Sentinel Crack, another classic climb and a must do.

Comments: Sevve I agree about the decking potential but the crack/ flake to the right of the first bolt has some bomber jugs and I never felt sketched out going for the 2nd bolt. There are many other climbs at RW with a higher second bolt than this one and a sketchier landing. And for being a confident 5.10 leader to do this, I don't know. Yes and no. I don't want to offend you Sevve I just don't want to give people the wrong impression of this route.

A very fun climb with a crimpy finish that will test... more >>

Comments: Sevve, I climbing that route on nov. 2 also (was that when you climbed it?) and almost pulled that jug off. I was able to clip that third bolt not using it so its probibly better that it is gone to prevent anyone from really getting hurt.
To anyone wanting to climb this,
Yes that part is a little run out to the third bolt but nothing to insane, your belayer just needs to pay attention. I had troubles going for that five bolt. If you fall before that clip your looking at a 15 to 20 footer. There... more >>

Comments: I tried this climb and we did not summit, ran out of time. If we would have been prepared to stay a night on top that would have been easier and we would have summited no problem. So climb and hike fast if you want to do it all in a days push, I would recommend camping just for the fun of it and then you don't have to rush.
