Comments: ~200' of a route, with 50' of good climbing (5.5), then 30' of terrible climbing (5.6+), then 120' of good climbing again (with the 5.8 variation). A #6 protects the offwidth at the start of pitch 2 pretty well (about 5.5), though you'd need something bigger to have a perma-top-rope. For the 30' of terrible climbing, here's a hint: the lower route is better rock overall, but only slightly. Not a great lead for tentative or learning leaders.

Comments: The pro got better on this route in the last month. Not sure why. Now takes a solid #4 DMM offset nut before the #2 DMM offset nut (also solid). Actually, you have choices for pro now, which is different. Gold Lowe-ball works great, and a blue/yellow Mastercam at the bottom and again at the top of the thin section are solid. I also enjoy a #5 right before the mantle, but maybe I'm just justifying the purchase.... 0.75, 1, and 2 for the final section are all great and protect ev... more >>

Comments: Mostly 5.6 with a touch of 5.8 at the top. If you don't get Hanta virus in the chimney, the pigeons will get you higher up. Still worth a go if you're in the area with a gear rack. Left anchor bolt was loose as of 1/11/14.

Comments: There needs to be an appreciation day for everyone who does service work like this. Thank you to Sam and everyone who lugs around heavy equipment on awesome climbs, taking risk and working harder, just to make those routes safer, easier and more enjoyable for everyone else!
