Comments: Is that you? I thought you were a Petzl man, and those tools look a lot like BD Vipers!!! Looks awesome, I've been working a lot, but will can and we'll get on some ice soon. If only it would snow...

Comments: This was my very first time mixed climbing outside, and needless to say, it was quite difficult. I made it to the pin, but had to back off since I had no rock gear and the ice was minimal. (Didn't even take off the caps that's how excited and new to this I was.) Oh well. An amazing route that I have not yet cleanly done, but hope to soon do. Blade Runner is also on the list to do now, what a proud line!!! Thanks for the encouragement.

Comments: I hear there is a new guidebook coming out soon, so I hope it will shed some light on this route. Quite a stellar and fun outing for sure, if you turn the arete sooner at the bottom it makes for a more interesting climb. Not terribly powerful and great holds everywhere, just very balancy and technical. I think a good name for this route would be 'Balancing Act'. At any rate, felt like 10b/c to me, a little easier if you bail far right instead of staying on the face up top.

Comments: Stellar, I think the bolts are placed perfectly, (the first one seems high, but it is no higher than many of the boulder problems here.) If you go sport style, make sure to bring a good head because after the last bolt the runout is long enough to warrant the R rating in my opinon, (although the terrain is 5.7-ish after the last bolt.) Pumpy and fun and a great warm-up for the other magnificent bolted line here 'Price For Fire'. I don't see where you need to make this dynamic, it is quite eaisly... more >>

Comments: I have to agree with the previous comments. I tried to onsight this, and while I got to the top, it was not a clean redpoint. Very cool fusion of sport and trad climbing techniques, but very stout for the grade. Hardest 10b trad I've ever led! Easy to see how it is a classic.

Comments: No, it is actaully not backclipped. The draw is euro-style, (aka the bineres are opposite) and it is merely twisted around.

Comments: Someone should re-bolt the first bolt then. I have a gun and would be more than willing, but I don't want to have another hole really, although it could be filled. Obviously the epoxy route did not work to well.... I do recommend that someone do this though, since the route sees so much traffic. If the park sees a rise in accidents they might close the route or tower, I would not be surprised.

Comments: I talked with the visitor center and mentioned that this first bolt is now missing. I completely agree though, this can be climbed as a sport route and most people that go to the Garden do not bring trad gear for routes such as this. I was told that you cannot drill new holes but are more than welcome to use pre-existing holds to place a new bolt. I suggest that someone add a beefier bolt that is of greater diameter (do these exist?) At any rate be careful. The route is still very doable, but be... more >>

Comments: The first bolt has been re-done and is much better now. The piton is gone. Fairly safe, except for the slight runout to the last bolt. Make sure to rest before clipping the 4th bolt and moving on.
