Comments: It's best to set up the anchor at the end of P2 near a couple of fixed nuts at your feet. You can also see an old, unusable tricam with a shredded pink sling jammed in the crack.

Comments: Unless I did another route by mistake, (I don't think so) this is a one pitch route, about 50 meters. Good route on quality rock. I think the crux is getting off the deck; the footing is a tad awkward.

Comments: One rap ring is missing, but you can easily rap from As The Crow Flies anchor/rap (down and left).

Comments: A walk-up to a slick section which isn't fun and then average climbing to the top. Don't understand my partner's enthusiasm for this route. Clean and takes pro well, but nothing special.

Comments: This is an overlooked classic. Bold, strenuous moves on juggy, well-protected rock.

Comments: Chossy, dirty, unavoidable rope drag. Not worth it, despite a few nice moves.

Comments: This seems to be regularly treated as P2 of Le Gourmet (what my party did), since there is a belay station. A fine route, but, nothing special.

Comments: This is perhaps the most strenuous 5.6 I know of. Sustained, excellent rock quality, good pro. I'll do it again.

Comments: This is NOT as great of a climb as some claim. Yes there are some cool moves, like the crux on P2 and the vertical section of P3, but it's kinda like Old Lady's route with a couple of 5.6 moves thrown in. A lot of strolling traverses on ledges - though I won't complain about the ledges providing comfy belays.

Comments: My guidebook describes this as something like "exciting but never outrageous". That's a perfect description. There's one spot on P2 where your only pro option is an old piton. Other pitons are in spots where you can place your own gear and not rely on these god-only-knows fixed pieces. There are no bail-out points without losing gear. Once on, you're committed. So climb with a proven partner! This climb is wonderful, do it even if you have to wait. Rappel from Ecstasy Jr. just around the corner.

Comments: The only safe way to do this route is on top rope. The move above the first horizontal is totally height dependent. The shorty (5'1") in my party got shut down cuz there's only one usable hold for the left hand (which she couldn't reach)to balance the right hand mantle.

Comments: I'm trying to figure out why so many people gush about this climb. Other than getting past the little roof, the climb isn't very interesting. The downclimb to climbers' left looked a little intimidating but there's a spot where it's easy, though a rap station would be welcome.

Comments: Protects well, a fun route. Just take medium and large cams, maybe medium nuts and you're good.

Comments: Tip for pitch 3 leaders; load your gear on the left side of your harness for easier access while going up the crack after the traverse. Our guidebook indicated this is a 3 pitch route, but we ended up doing 4 pitches cuz I ran out of draws with about 40 feet to go.

Comments: I disagree that this is barely worth roping up for. Though short, this is a fine TRed friction/slab route.
