Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the 1/4" quick links and 3/8" links of chain at the first belay with Fixe SS double ring hangers. The hardware was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association(ASCA - www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

We also tightened up the third bolt on the first pitch(crux) which was very loose.

As an aside, Dale and I placed those original anchors on the route shortly after the FA in 2002 so they have been up there for 14 ye... more >>

Comments: The description for the third pitch reads:

"When doing the 3rd pitch, you should belay at the 2nd belay of the Bihedral Arete."

Shouldn't this actually read:

"When doing the 3rd pitch, you should belay at the top of the first pitch of the Bihedral Arete."

The term "2nd belay" is a bit confusing. Does that mean the belay for the start of the 2nd pitch (in this case probably, yes), bu... more >>

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the cold shut as one of the anchors with a Fixe ring hanger. This now makes two Fixe ring hangers at the anchor. Thanks to Ron Olsen for providing the hardware.

Comments: Looks like red Loctite. I would suggest blue Loctite for future projects. It is much easier to break the bond if you need to do replacement. Red Loctite can sometimes become permanent.

Comments: Climbed this today after the block had been removed. No change in the grade of the route. No need to bring any trad gear for this route.

Comments: Dale Haas and I went up there on 6/2/16 and put a new hanger, washer, and nut on the 5th bolt. We also tightened all the other bolts on the climb, so hopefully this won't be a problem in the near future.

As far as the quality of climbing on the route...I think the climb is better and more fun doing it via the 5.9 handcrack start on the left.
