Comments: The new route on Phallus is one of Piana's he did a couple years ago. Hard Years 5.8+? Starts off chockstone and is primarily bolts. Really great line! Then there is a direct start with a couple bolts and gear called Short Arm Inspection 5.10. Also Piana's, but not as good. I'll add them soon...

Comments: Yes it is 40m not 40'. Can barely TR with an 80m rope. There is now a set of anchors for this route, just below the summit.

Comments: Spoke with Nate Postma a while back about his route and apparently it was not documented correctly. This is actually a 3 pitch climb! Guidebooks only describe the 3rd pitch. Which makes sense, since there is a nice looking line leading up to the 3rd with bomber anchors. The 2nd pitch, I believe, has a large flake that looks and sounds sketch. But Postma says they couldn't get it come. I'll update this route once I climb the full line.

Comments: Onsighted this today. Very fun, aesthetic line, but felt contrived at the top. 12-?

Comments: Also possible to keep trending left after last bolt to reach Knob Goblin's anchors.

Comments: Excellent line, one of the best in the park! No need for the R rating, or even PG13...Beginning is thin for gear, but it is there. Bomber placements are all over this route.

Comments: BHCC replaced all hardware on this and M&M. Bring a finger or hand size cam for higher up.

Comments: All hardware replaced by BHCC on 7/17/15. First set of anchors were removed. It now goes all the way to a huge belay ledge. Bring one finger or hand size cam for the horizontal.

Comments: Sweet! Yeah, Tony is putting in the last bolt here. Then as he climbed on, the very crystal he was hooking on broke under his foot.

Comments: We recently did the Blue line. V3/4? Climbed on the arĂȘte the whole way.

The Red line looks real hard. Didn't try.

Comments: Ok, maybe Jason just gave it this name...which is why I thought he did it first.

Comments: I could be wrong about the FA. You would know better than me. So the Lewis Bros. did do this line first?

Comments: Originally given 12a, but I thought Everlasting was much harder than this. Would have been a better climb if the crack was utilized more for gear and the bolts weren't out of the way, trying to force an arĂȘte climb.

Comments: Never saw anything in the Blue Book. Except for the 5.12- OW crack that Bein TR-ed. Right next to this line but seperate. Maybe that's what your thinking of?

Comments: I'm pretty sure it's something of Shaffer and Love's. Though Shaffer couldn't remember if it got finished ever. Did it have anchors?
