Comments: Found a guidebook at the base today, let me know where it was and I'd love to get it back to you. Third bolt is a spinner! I was going for the 4th bolt when I slipped/needed to take, trying to reach down to my draw (didn't want to cheese grade). After grabbing the draw, I was on top of my belayer on the ground. A combination of me reaching for the draw and almost walking down plus a spinner created enough movement that it simply un-clipped. What a ride, I ... more >>

Comments: Just hiked out there, still no hangers. From these comments, looks like there hasn't been any for years.

Comments: anyone know what route is directly to climbers left of this route? Starts off .75's and has the pretty decent size OW near the top?

Comments: My fiancé and I simul-climbed this route 10-11-15. We did it late in the day and made it to the top in about 50 minutes. Does anyone have more information on this wall? The colorful topo picture looks amazing, but I can't read any of it.

Comments: after cleaning the route, my 70m rope was hanging off the ground a few feet and I have never cut the ends. My weight was able to stretch the rest of the way. Be carful and tie your ends...or possibly make sure its a true 70m

Comments: Such fun few moves up this beast. Really not to hard, great holds inside and easy stemming. I would say it is 15ft?

Comments: I have eyeballed this many times while walking down. My gf and I climbed it yesterday and I am still smiling from it. Read other comments and bring what you feel is safe. Two #4's are great and mentally three #4's would be awesome! The last 20 feet of p2 will get your heart rate up. I lie backed and bumped a #4 a good 5-6 times. Take peoples advice and belay up and right outside the cave on p2. Extra #1 and #2's won't go unused.

Does anyone know about he rap ro... more >>

Comments: Fun route. I found that the 10d traverse was far more technical than the 11a face. My girlfriend is a strong climber but found this route was harder due to her reach. Finishing up the 5.7 arete is amazing, a classic on ECM for sure.

Comments: Super good route, Lieback is pretty smooth sailing. Did it yesterday (2-16-14) and one of the bolts on the second pitch anchor is very loose. If you look behind the hanger, The entire bolt seems to wiggle. We chanced it and rapped off, it was pretty scary thinking about on the way down.

Comments: Very good route! All the moves are pretty big but the holds are huge. Hardest thing about this route is fighting the pump

Comments: Great route with an amazing finish. Do yourself a favor and climb the last pitch arete. Holds are all there but be comfortable climbing 5.6 with huge run outs! Very fun climb

Comments: Good route. The last 10-15 foot off width section is a little heady, its all there just commit.

Comments: got a green C3 stuck at the top in the middle of routes 4 and 5. Sank it for a TR anchor and it was wet inside. Ill shake your hand if you get it out. I'll buy you some beers if you return it.

Comments: This was my first trad climb I have done. The holds were excellent and it felt relatively easy to place gear. I recommend this climb for a beginner trad climber.
