Comments: You can link P1 and P2 with a 70m (maybe a 60 too??). P3 and P4 probably are best not to link, loads of rope drag.

Comments: Dean, its Jeff's (or was?) project. Did you do the link moving into the crack system? Looked cool just didn't get to it yet.

Comments: I thought it was quite sketchy. "Should be around for awhile" should not be an acceptable option when the flake will likely kill someone when it falls off.

Comments: Did anyone find an orange Grigri with a brown BD keylock? I think I left it around the base of Youth Warm-up on 2/16.

Comments: Anyone climbed up here recently? I just moved to the area and would like to check it out. From what I have found, it is good in winter, is that correct?

Comments: Note on the Rap. From the top of the crux pitch we rapped straight down the the face but did not find any anchors. Fortunately our two 70m ropes reached all the way to the main ledge (With a few feet to spare). 60m rope would NOT reach however.

Comments: Did someone take a draw off the 10 down stream from grey matter this last week? It was left there as a redirect for shooting photos and I was unable to grab it before it rained buckets and soaked everything. I would really appreciated it back its got camp wiregate biners and a long BD dogbone. Thanks

Comments: Anyone know whats up with the two bolts a few inches apart high up on the route? Was it going to be a lower anchor? I think the route would benefit from having the anchor there as the rock quality becomes bad above these two bolts.

Comments: As of 5/24/12 this route does not have hangers on its anchor if you continue up past the sling-fest anchor. There is also a decent runout getting to the anchor (the one without hangers). Would recommend just going to the sling-fest anchor is you decide to climb this. The 4th and 5th bolt are still old leeper hangers.

Comments: JJ I think that is a good grade for it, but I would be interested to see what some other people think too. Either way its a great climb [and hard]. Thanks again for all your hard work up there. I excited to give this thing another go.

Comments: Did this route on 12/17/2011, its an excellent route with some great climbing on it and would recommend it.

Firstly on the gear we took a single set of nuts and did not place any. There were a couple 25ish? foot run outs however I felt that they were no harder than 5.8, far easier than the rest of the route.

I felt that the first and the fourth (the roof) pitch were the hardest parts.

If I was to do it again I would bring a few extra draws and link the 2nd and 3rd pitches. The third pitch is... more >>
