Comments: Looks like you climbed a new route. KnuckleBalls climbs the orange streaked section further right. I just looked at the topo in the new RB guide and can see how you climbed your new route instead. KB does end at the same tree.

See the topo here for more details.

Comments: Correct. The route to the left of the flake is Huffin. That flake and face above is a really good toprope problem too! There are a few errors in the new guide book.

Comments: Climbed this for the first time and found that if you take your time and find the gear, it's more like PG13. Here's some gear beta that may help if the routes reputation has kept you attempting it. Obvious gear and good stances get you up into the crack. You can girth hitch the horn and properly done this thing is bomber. After the next move is a large stopper/tricam or offset cam, then a shallow but bomber .75 BD goes in the first horizontal above the crack. You can also get a #1 next ... more >>

Comments: Great alpine rock route with an amazing summit! Climbed it August 8, 2014. El Nino conditions meant storms were gonna happen by 4pm or sooner. Started hiking from Mosquito Flats at 4am, simul-climbed the route with a 30m rope and tagged the summit at 10:30. Probably could have done better on time, but briefly got off trail briefly gem lakes. Carried a single set of cams .3 to 3 and med - large stoppers.
