Comments: Just a high quality line. The wasps are lingering in the first little slot of p2.

Comments: Yeah, the first hanger is still loose but felt safe nonetheless. Really nice pitch and recommended for variety after P1 of Touch and Go.

Comments: ...a #1 Camalot will give some comfort at the horizontal crack before the last bolt. I found that finishing the route straight up would bump the grade up significantly. Blank friction. Enter Sore-o-pod or exit left if up is not an option.

Comments: High quality area. We found the top slab to the rap anchors a wee bit frictiony with one bolt and some tasty exposure.

Comments: Nice line. This route seems to be finger width dependent. Those folks with skinny fingers will find the jams solid and trustworthy. The meatier-fingers might have a bit more trouble with them jams.

Comments: Short but fun. The jams are not sustained throughout the whole pitch as Heel and Toe states, but becomes a wide crack in between two solid hand cracks.

Comments: A lot more mellow then posted, except for the last move if you avoid the Sore-o-pod crack. Very well protected and good fun.

Comments: this is an exciting little seam with a nice approach. i think it fairly deserves two stars. if you're just cruising the area and are interested in the full experience of the climb, it's worth it. a nice warm-up to other climbs in the area as well.

Comments: Nice route with some diversity. Jesse's description of the pitches is well said. To add: pitch three is a prominent left-facing dihedral...the closer you get the more obvious it becomes. with [Luebben's] guidebook and this site description, routefinding should be much easier. For those who are headed to Greyrock for their first time, descents on this line (and others near) are via walk-offs. head northeast following rocks cairns and trail posts to a trail that has a switchback (to the southea... more >>

Comments: Get ready for some quality mantling. If you are of shorter nature, the first bolt might be tricky. The undercling is still there and felt solid. Enjoy.

Comments: One 60 meter rope is good for the raps. If you want to be overly cautious, bring two. Rap station-rap station-slung tree-ground. A nice day at Combat=a nicer way to bring in the new year.

Comments: Fun route, a good one to warm up on before hitting some of the other moderates. It didn't seem of very sustained nature. The crux was short, some interesting little bulges on the granite. Plenty of gear placements, seems like a good first 9 lead. Overall, Happy Hour is a great place to work on placing gear to your heart's delight while being able to challenge yourself.

Comments: Delightful. The grade is right on for the crux, which is the open book slightly overhung tasty fingers bit. It's solid fingers and placements makes it the perfect first 10 lead. Way to grunt sal! There is a fixed cam just atop the crux which looks a little worn but still good. Next time, rock, paper, scissors is mine to win.

Comments: I've done this route a couple of times and would go with a 5.7- rating. The first pitch, being awkward to shove yourself in the chimney, can easily be done by frictioning up the outside. This will definitely limit gear and it'd be runout, but the angle is very positive and it'll feel much easier then "cold fingers" on fall wall. This is an exciting route that deserves two stars.

Comments: What a neat line in that area of the canyon. Great rock quality. Get those small stoppers ready before you pull the crux. You can get at least two beauties before you crank over the small roof. The rest is pure joy.

Comments: Enjoyable route of sustained nature. I felt the top of the first section a crux of sorts. Neat area with good exposure. Three stars all the way.

Comments: Nothing short of delightful. Although, I wanted it to be longer. I'm not complaining by any means...great sustained hand crack. With that...don't forget the hand sized gear.

Comments: A quality pitch of thought-provoking little moves. From mantling on the face to little fingers...a very enjoyable lead and agreed with the rating of 5.9. Have fun!

Comments: Great hands to a sweaty groaning offwidth, this great route is one you'll most definitely remember. it'd be nice to carry two 3.5 Camalots near the top of the offwidth.

Comments: just a joy of a climb. this will test the balancy slabby friction doers. the pro makes it very comfy for those looking to challenge themselves after cold fingers.
