Comments: This is fun ridge traverse climbing. Agree w/ fossana about the headwall being sustained and it's probably the crux. Several options here and it felt like I chose the easiest; felt like 5.7+ face climbing on crusty flakes and cracks. After the headwall is gained, climbing through the slot is fun as there is a perfect hand crack. Then the ridge fun begins. Some class 3 and 4 mixed in with mid-5th and anything up to 5.10 if you wish. I stuck with the all the easiest options and 5.7 is a ... more >>

Comments: The thin crack climbs like a face since it isn't deep enough to jam in. A lot of face, lie-back and gaston will get you up to the step across move which is easy for a tall person. The thin gear is good. blue and yellow metolius cams. I placed an orange one for the step across move.

Comments: So much thin edge climbing all over this wall I may have been off route a bit a couple of times because I thought the bolts were poorly placed and it took a bit of traversing around to make clips. Good, sustained face climbing though. Not like the hueco jug hauls like malice or alice. Loose rock at the top. Hand size cams will build a good belay and we soloed up a right side short 5.6 crack to gain the top. Start on All the Nasties(the thin crack will protect w/ a small nut or green c3).

Comments: our descent went like this. from George's description above, after scrambling up the big chockstone and seeing the corridor, continue up and right (east/SE) on a class 4ish move up a short wide crack. Then on top, walk east to gain the slabs and head towards mopboysV6.

Comments: The traverse is airy, weird and fun! Small & med nuts do work well on both pitches. I think a #4 cam would protect well in amongst the slinged huecos on P1. I set up that same belay Jason talks about above with the 2nd bolt and nuts on P2. Works great for communication, especially if the wind is blowing, otherwise forget about it. Get your rope tugs down before-hand. Take lots of slings. Watch for loose rock. Have Fun!

Comments: fun indeed. pretty sustained 5.8 & 5.9. can finish on cakewalk for another 5.7 pitch with med-large cams (#2-#4s) or hexes. scramble up and right after the 2P traverse belay. A 60m barely makes it but an option is to lead P1 of CWDirect to the 2nd bolted anchor that is 40 ft. up past the 1st.

Comments: good slab ride!
minimal rack beta: 1 #1 bd c4 cam, then 1 metolius blue mastercam down on P1, 5 shoulder sling draws, and 6 long quickdraws. I like shoulder slings on the first couple clips to minimize rope drag. Sling the big bomber tree atop P3 for anchor.
