Comments: Anyway to change the name to Coatamundi -> Candyland, since that's what this linkup is commonly referred to? CW finishes out left under the great roof, so "Great Roof Finish" isn't really accurate.

The traverse on the second pitch mentioned above is the route of the first ascentionists and shouldn't be missed. Head left on small edges and flakes toward a hanging crack in the middle of the face. This section is unprotected, but the hardest moves are right out of the chimney. Cli... more >>

Comments: This was post storm in October- 2005 I think. We were wondering if this line had been climbed before, due to the ephemeral conditions. Probably has by a bunch of old hardpeople, but who knows. Still an adventure especially since most screw placements were a joke...

Comments: Climbed directly up thin cracks above initial finger crack. Its all there but you've got to work a bit for good placements.

Comments: for those of us not familiar with Loft Cinema or the BLOC climbing and fitness, it should be noted that this event is in Tucson

Comments: Although Thin Ice was more continuous as a route, I thought that the crux pitch of Fancy Free was harder than anything on Thin Ice- for whatever it's worth, but I also probably jammed FF straight in.

Comments: As of 8-25-12, the road into the Needles is in pretty rough shape. A high clearance vehicle is recommended, although we did see a party with an Audi driving out as we drove in. During the week, the fighter jets were very active, flying low over the domes- ear rattling loud, but pretty cool to see them screaming by in an inversion. They seemed to take the weekend off.

Comments: Sad that, 1, MP wouldn't allow me to give it 5 stars, and, 2, that it replaced the 3rd (finger crack) pitch of Reunion on Granite Mountain as my favorite pitch of 10a ever.

Comments: Funny thing is that I am just using an Olympus point and shoot; a Stylus 770W I believe. These photos have not been edited or altered by software in anyway- just the magic of the rock and sky that make this place so beautiful.

Comments: According to the first guidebook to GM, written by David Lovejoy, Magnolia was graded "5.8 or 5.9, depending on height".

Comments: Well Murph, since you are assuming, you know what that means. My comments were related to the fact that the 1st pitch was regarded as the best 5.8 ever (see comments above), not to the fact that I have climbed the route. WPOD was and is rated 5.8 by the first ascensionists. Just suggesting another great 5.8 route and certainly not "crowing" about it. I'm sorry that my comments struck you in the wrong way.

Comments: 2 long pitches is the way to go.

+1 for loving the V-slot- the distinct differences in the pitches on this route add to its character and classic status

Agreed that it is only 1 or 2 tough moves to get into the slot, then continuous, repetitive movement. Won't beta spray on technique for the V-slot, but it seems that liebacking the edge would be hard and scary.
