Comments: Yeah agreed. Straight up from the belay into that discontinuous crack system seemed 10- for sure, and scary to start as you are looking at decking on the belay ledge if you flub up anything low.

Comments: The GPS coordinates at the spot where you walk due west from the CCC trail to this boulder are: 43*24'46"N and 89*42'40"W. I'll post a photo of the spot where you walk directly west towards a very tall pine tree. Boulder is under this tree. It's maybe 100 yards directly west of the CCC trail from this spot.

This was the easiest approach IMO, but as the comments above point out, you... more >>

Comments: The easiest approach is not from the east bluff woods trail. Walk up the east bluff trail (from the north shore) and where the cave is and the trail goes up steps to the right you stay left and follow the secondary trail around the bluff to the left, away from the lake. You will find this bluff after maybe 5 minutes.

As with many areas at Devils Lake, you can approach from any direction, but what I posted above is the quickest IMO.

Comments: Ryan: 60M double rope rap will make it to the base from the summit. I don't think one 70M rope rap from the top would make it down.

My comments above reflect our confusion when first climbing this spire. We climbed what we think is the proper 5.8 way this past weekend. From the 1st pitch belay ledge you climb the huge flake to your right to the top of the flake, then reach left into another smaller flake system which has a piton in it. From there again reach/traverse u... more >>

Comments: If you do the route to the top of the 2nd pitch of waves as suggested above (which is a great long pitch) you need a lot more than 5 or 6 draws as listed here. Maybe double that, I wasn't counting.

Comments: I suppose this goes without saying, but since this is listed as a sport route and you don't really need gear for the climbing, one may wish to bring a small rack to anchor the belayer...

One comment about a single 60M rope and this route: As I was top belaying my follower up, the middle mark on my rope went through my belay device when my climber had climbed about 10-15 feet up from the ledge. As not all 60M ropes are created equal, I probably would err on the side of tra... more >>

Comments: Got it. Went up there today. Very nice problem. As Clayton says, it's burly. Definitely the natural start is matched on the undercling.

Comments: Classic. Little train on this today.

Lost under this problem: one wooden handled brush with "C$" written on it. If you find it you will be blessed with many rad sends. Only if you keep it for yourself though.

Comments: Cool story about this route:

sdpb.org/blogs/arts-and-cultur...

Not sure about the "unrepeated" part. Jeremy, did you ever figure out if you repeated what Cleveland did, or climbed something new? If you want to meet at Devil's Lake and climb some weekend shoot me a note, and we can swing by Pete's house and you can ask him yourself. Saw him up on the east bluff last weekend.

Comments: Had someone ask me why we had a tag line for a walk off route. The weather was iffy and in fact we got rained/lighteninged off the 4th pitch. So no, you don't need a tag line unless you may wish to rap.

Comments: Interesting. Is that right? The problem description says start on starfish hold. If your photo is correct, that perhaps explains why so many think this problem is on the soft side. I had to stand on a folded pad to reach the starfish hold. Pretty sure I would never be able to find the reserve again but if and when I do, I will need to start lower!

Comments: In my opinion, now that mountainproject has started using consensus rating for the main rating used in searches and stuff, that all these routes should have their original rating reassigned to them for historical purposes. R gold you mention south tower, a perfect example. It was 5.7 and the original rating should still be listed as 5.7. If enough people give it 5.9 as a modern rating, then it will have 5.9 attached for searches and as the main rating.
