Geir's bolt-puller Hurly in action. This thing destroyed 1/4" and 3/8" split-shafts and left nice clean holes for the new 1/2"SS ASCA bolts.

Comments: This is an outstanding route, even just the first half.

We've finished updating the bolts on the first section. Thanks to the ASCA for supplying hardware! I ventured up into the second part of the climb to discover fresh rock scars and very difficult climbing (for me!). It felt like hard 13. Geologic processes will take their course... I chose not to replace the mess of old hardware on this section, mainly because I couldn'@SE... more >>

Comments: This route has been led on mainly gear by Austin Sobotka, who skipped the first three bolts and the final bolt in the Galley. After lengthy discussions about rock quality and safety, we chose not to remove these bolts. Although the rock at the bottom of the climb is decently-fissured, it is quite hollow and flexible and is marked by committing climbing. Choose your own adventure.

Comments: Thanks for sharing your stories Paul...that sounds like quite a day! And a partnership.

In response to your comment about the crux protection, I'll just say that I found plenty of thin gear, but I didn't really want to test it. I spent quite a long time building nests...but I think everything together would've been adequate to keep me above the roof corner. Placing it on-point is another matter...

I tried wrapping that same chicken-nub too, but gave up pretty fast when my crux attempts easily ... more >>

Comments: It is just possible to rap off from the new anchor with a 70m rope, but DEFINITELY tie knots in the end (when do you ever not do this, right?) and keep a watchful eye as you descend. You'll probably end up at the end of your line on top of or just above the little pedestal at the start of the route. Make sure that your rope is in front of the tree branches before you start rapping, or it'll be hard to pull...

Comments: The oldest fixed line in the approach gully to Neptune has been replaced. For future reference:

Green and purple rope--c. 2012

Blue and gray rope--c. 2015

Thanks for the rope, Greg!
