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: Climbing to anchors below the roof is easy and fun. Pro is excellent. Take a #3 cam. The crack is bigger than is evident from the ground.

Comments: The climb is strenuous because the stances to place pro are usually strenuous; much more challenging on lead than seconding. Pro is excellent. The whippers at the top probably happen because it's hard to place pro while doing the layback moves needed there.

Comments: The strenuous start is in 5.9 territory.

Comments: Really fun! A wide variety of techniques needed. All the chimney moves just might shut down gym rats. Oh, and a helmet is a good idea for the leader to avoid injury on a fall for the upper chimney moves.

Comments: You'll want several #2 to #4 BD cams and maybe a big hex. Had to descend to retrieve cams several times in order to reuse them higher up; the wide width of the crack gave me little other choice. An inconvenience on a worthwhile route.

Comments: You definitely want to take as many #2 Black Diamond cams as you have as well as medium sized nuts. Pro is bomber. Excellent climb.

Comments: Extend your runners on the 1st and 3rd bolts to avoid drag. Beware of loose rock.

Comments: Consider this route run out in the worst place; not far above your first placement. Hello ground fall potential. It's not likely you can get a solid piece of pro in the flaring, right leaning "crack" where you need it. Run out at the top too. Fine for a TR, though.

Comments: Two or three bold moves at the bottom and the rest is a 5.7. This and other routes to climber's right on The Brain formation dry out quickly after a rain.

Comments: I also girth hitched to the handle-like root near the top as another commenter did. Better than nothing. Otherwise, the route protects well. A few lay-back moves at the crux worked well for me. This is a fun route.

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: Strenuous and fun. You'll get a cardio work-out on this one.

Comments: Though the route is beyond my capabilities (made it 3/4 of the way up on TR) this is a fun climb.

Comments: Looks like a walk-up, but it ain't. Fun route. Rock is clean and pro looks solid.

Comments: Take a couple of big hexes and medium-large to large cams. An OK route.

Comments: There are plenty of other, way better climbs without the route-finding hassle. Bottom is a walk-up, then where to go? I ended up surely off- route way to the right in an overhanging crack certainly way harder than 5.7. So it goes sometimes!

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: It would be idiotic to lead this. Great TR. Beautiful setting, easy access to hang the rope, challenging route.
