Comments: Open shut at the top of this pitch is getting pretty worn. I left a biner on it. Please don't take it unless you plan on replacing the shut ;)

Comments: Finally got on this one, barely hung on for the onsight. 11b felt pretty dead on to me, but I may have missed some holds. I found this to be a little run out for a 'sport' climb. You would definitely deck from ~25 if you blew clip 3 (which is a possibility for shorter folks who can't easily reach the bolt from the small ledge.)

Comments: Don't stray too far right on P2(not counting the pitch 0 sitstart). My partner ran up some runout seam to some tat around a horn below a steep flared finger crack. Pro didn't look great in the flared fingers above so I traversed back left and got involved with a clean and physical OW (5.9ish and good fun at ~11k feet).

P4 involves a short but heady 10- section. I put a piece in at my feet before leaving the ledge mid pitch. Immediatly after stepping up and right from the ledge you can get a sm... more >>

Comments: Sets up for a neat sunset solo if you are into that kind of thing. Exciting, wideish bulge up high. Mostly secure jams and locks and good feet. Enjoyed the beautiful walkoff past some cool pools with views of Tenaya lake to the west.

Comments: I thought this thing was super fun. Took a bunch of giant whippers off the overhang up top. I've heard some skip the second to last bolt by staying left and gunning for the chains.

Comments: I was robbed, robbed!!! Spit off on my flash attempt by the sharp little crimps up top. Looks like the anchor may have been a bolt lower previously? thought I saw a bolt hole filled next to the last bolt. Full value, one of the best pitches of the trip thus far.

Comments: My friend and I both onsighted and agreed it could be soft (11d onsights are rare for me!). Would be full value 11c. Lots of techy and pumpy climbing; would be easy to come off in places. Either way, a classic for sure!
