Comments: This is my favorite gear climb at Ozone. Clean & solid, good gear, long, and a decent dose of exposure make for a fun time.

Comments: "I once saw a guy trying to stick clip the chains on this."

That wouldn't invalidate a lead attempt would it?

Comments: "I rarely change the grade from what is listed in the local guidebook but I do agree that it doesn't feel like a 10b."


Are you saying it feels harder or easier than 5.10b?


thanks

Comments: Feels like a solid 5.10b to me. Caffeine Free is my favorite line of the base routes on this buttress.

Comments: I back-cleaned several bolts and used slings on a lot of the clips and the rope drag was still bad. This is one I'd definitely recommend breaking into two pitches (at the first anchor).

Location: OR : Smith Rock : Phoenix : Carabid (5.6 PG13)
By: another Chad When: Oct 28, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: Carabid starts roughly thirty feet to the right of Drill 'em and Fill 'em and follows a lumpy crack system that angles left. Climb twenty feet to a brushy ledge and then another one-hundred twenty feet to the top of the climb. There's a black sling and a ring around a small pinnacle which can be used as an anchor. A three-bolt anchor is located left and down from the sling anchor which is in a less convenient location but is less nerve racking.

Bring your partner up. Cleaning this line on... more >>

By: another Chad When: Oct 21, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: I found this to be a really cool route. On par with the other Mesa Verde classics. I've only ever done this route with a 60m rope though you will definitely want to tie a knot in the end (but you do that already anyway, right?!). The climber will need to swing left into the slot in order to touch ground....or use a 70m rope.

Comments: "Both Summitpost and the new Falcon guide say a double rope is mandatory for rappel, but this page mentions a single rope rappel. Is it possible to rap with a single 60m or 70m?"

Nobody rappels the Pioneer Route. Not sure why it's mentioned in the route description. Rappelling from the mouth to Bohn Street seems like an exercise in frustration. Not to mention you'd annoy the group that would invariably be on the bolt ladder.

As Watts puts it: "Two ropes are mandatory on the descent... more >>

Comments: Old school climb, one 1/4" button-head with a spinner and nothing else for protection (yeah, you'd be lucky if your sling stayed on those knobs).

Comments: I guess I'm just used to slick basalt because Double Trouble didn't feel particularly greasy/dirty/sweaty to me. I mention this because it would be a bummer if someone skipped over this fun climb because of the comments here.

Comments: The next (bolted) line to the left is Getting Your Kicks. Loose rock and 5.11a. In my opinion, it's a poor recent addition to the wall.
