Approaching the end of the short, 2nd pitch. The wall on the left here looks incredible. I saw one bolt with an old leaver hanging on it. The right shaded side has some steep cracks on it too.

Comments: Fun route. The bottom offers great jams and stemming but is painfully short.
Rather than using the chains on the left, skip them and work your way out right towards the prominent prow (use long slings). The rock is good (enough) and you can get great pro in either the slanting or horizontal cracks before pulling an airy and fun roof. Then belay from tree maybe 20' back from the roof. This extension makes this route much better.

Comments: I'll have to try this route again, but it really left a bad taste in my mouth. Two bolts on a nice thin hand crack, the 4th bolt gets in the way of crux footwork, making the crux even more awkward and a strange anchor placement.

Something useful about the route... you can TR the corner below the anchor, it's steep and a bit thought provoking for a few moves. Not sure about the big block in the corner 3/4 the way up. I did not pull on it that hard. I think this is the climb Wacko(?)

Comments: I thought this was a quality route and a fine memorial to your friend Zack.
I did not see any fixed gear on the route. Aside from the final pitch of real climbing (pitch 6 in the topo shown here) the rock quality was good. That pitch was a bit crumbly but easy climbing, but basically no pro until you exited the chimney/wide crack. Nothing really felt 5.7 to me either, the stemming over the bush seemed really casual.

I agree that there are definitely some sections of sparse or no pro an... more >>

Comments: The Supertopo guide lists a climb just to the left of Mixed Emotions called Ringlock. It's supposed to be a 10a bolted line on the same spire as Mixed Emotions and See Thru. I've looked for it a few times and haven't been able to find it. Am I missing something or is this an error in the book? thx

Comments: Great climb.
The first pitch was a bit disappointing, the second was very good. Had originally planed to climb Orange Book to the top but when we got to the first belay and saw that incredible looking crack, had to go for it. I personally thought the first pitch corner was more difficult (awkward) than the second pitch crack. It was like insecure jams vs. sinker.

Comments: Above the chimneys felt like sustained, steep 5.6/5.7 climbing with maybe 2 very short sections of 5.8 and has more bolts than really needed, there are holds and gear options just about everywhere you look. The chimneys are the show stopper though, absolutely incredible climbing. First team on at sunrise, back at the car by 2 pm.

Comments: This route seemed really un-inspiring. I was really cold however. Got to try it when it's warm.
