Comments: Some serious fall potential if leading at your limit, but great exposure for an 8!

Comments: Third route from the left.

At 6'4" I could keep the grade at 5.10a with an extreme reach, but either I missed a hold (or it's broken off) because the start seemed like it would be a few letter grades higher for someone of average height.

Comments: One tough move, easier if you're tall (10+ maybe)

Comments: A #2 and/or a .5/.75 Camalot makes getting to the first bolt fairly safe. If following at your limit, be careful after unclipping the second bolt because of the swing potential.

Comments: Still horribly dirty; scary first bolt with spinning hanger; glad I didn't lead it; plenty of TR equipment on top.

Comments: Nice shot!
How long is the rap? Can it be done with a single rope? (30 m 40 m or 70 m)

Comments: I agree, best route on the wall. I prefer trad, but this would be crappy on gear. Always ask before you drill, though.

Comments: Great route for practicing jams of various sizes and for placing cams. Very safe for a newer leader [as long as they can get up 5.9 crack]. The crux will likely be hand size dependent.

Comments: Very fun. I used a couple holds on the arete about two thirds of the way up. Didn't seem like I was cheating, but it also didn't feel as hard as 10c.

Comments: Spectacular line in a spectacular place! I concur that no move seemed harder than 10a, but you would need to be able to cruise 5.10 to actually send it on lead due to the elevation.

We cut down a tattered rope, replaced the oldest looking webbing at both belays, and removed discarded webbing left deep in the summit crack. LNT - or as little as possible.
