Comments: Great route. My favorite 10 I've done in AF. I thought that the anchors would make more sense moved about 3 feet left. The last part of the route calls for some sketchy traversing on holds that are ready to blow (and did several times!). Felt a little out of character from the rest of the route.

Comments: Great route. Bouldery and fun. Make sure to pick the correct pocket when pulling through the crux.

Comments: Great climb up through the ninth bolt. At bolt 9, the rock quality gets worse and makes every move slower and more methodical up to the roof. There might be some secret beta for pulling the roof that makes it 10a but I played around up there for about 5 minutes and didn't find anything that felt easier than 10c\d. I thought this felt substantially harder than the 10b right next to it and a little harder than the 10c two routes over.

Comments: One of the links at the top is pretty grooved through (insert rant about not toproping through the chains). I didn't have anything with me or else I would have switched it out myself. If anyone gets the chance to swap out one of the links up top (I think I remember it being a quick link), it would be helpful.

Comments: Is the bolt spacing like this for most of the route? 15 - 20 feet in between bolts?

Comments: I think that's leftover haze from a storm - I've never really known the Moab area to have air quality problems.

Comments: Yeah dude. Really. It's a roof and would be a bitch to clean. We don't go to J-Tree and start bitching about your ethics. Show us the same courtesy.

Edit to add: Not that I had anything to do with putting it up; just that I resent your bitching.

Comments: Killis - I've never rebolted a route but I've climbed on enough ASCA bolts in RR to make me feel indebted. If we can work out a schedule, I'll drive down from Provo and help out. Only catch is that we have to climb it afterwards.

Comments: Is wearing two different shoes important beta or is it just a fashion statement?

Comments: What's the area past Tatooine - the one under the black waterfall? We were up there today and saw a lot of cool-looking routes, but I didn't want to get on anything that hadn't been sent yet. Perin, Crisco, Tristan - are those routes kosher to get on?

And thanks a lot - this is my favorite area in the canyon!

Comments: Amazing climb! Coming out from the corner onto the exposed face is nerve-wracking move. I left a draw up there and went to get it 2 days later but it was gone. Has anyone grabbed a Cypher draw recently?
