Comments: Dale Haas and I brought a wrench and tightened the 6th bolt on the 2nd pitch as well as all the other bolts on the 2nd pitch as well. If you go right at the 2nd bolt, it is much easier than going left. That might be why some people think the crux of the route is at the 2nd bolt.

Comments: Dale Haas and I bolted the direct finish to this route. At the third bolt, instead of traversing right into the hand crack go straight up past two bolts to a new two bolt anchor with rings for rappel. The climbing is in the 5.9+/5.10- range.

Comments: Dale Haas and replaced the other cold shut anchor at the belay with a SS Powers 5-piece bolt. The anchor now has one SS bolt, one plated steel bolt, two SS hangers, and SS quicklinks and rings.

Comments: Dale Haas and I added a more user-friendly anchor to this route. No more need for long slings on TR or blowing a biceps tendon pulling your rope after rappelling.

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the 1/4" quicklinks 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 year... 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 >>
