Comments: Yeah def felt most sketched clipping the chains, first few moves were polished feet but low enough that you could jump down and not mess yourself up.

Wish I would have spent a longer rest before the second 1/2.

Comments: Not to be a dick Floyd but that first pitch is no where CLOSE to 5.10, sounds like you have to work on your technique a bit. I onsight lead solo'd it and I can only do a handful of 5.10 leads and two 5.11's at my peak.

Comments: The rusty 1/4" bolts at the regular route anchors have been replaced with 3/8" bolts, fixie hangers, and petzl quick links.

Comments: I wouldn't say this is a sandbagged .11a at all. There is basically 3 moves in the 11 range...I'd call them maybe closer to 11c/ V3 but you have that amazing rest and a bolt basically making it a top roped move. Getting from the 2nd to 3rd almost was harder with crap feet.

Sweet sand stone twist to slab climbing

Comments: If you do some internet searching on the Grizzly dome you can find all about the other routes along the road to it and to the right of the main wall. A great place to take people new to leading and mulitpitch, make sure they have at least a little knowledge of friction climbing.

Comments: Stuck me a #8 BD nut in the The Leaning Tower. If anyone grabs it it'd be great to get it back (I'd pay for shipping). Thanks :D
