Comments: FA: Darren Mabe, 2004. Young and impressionable, this was my first experience of learning the dark art of bolting on lead.

Comments: Added a few routes recently. Not my typical MO, but haven't had time to clean/brush them properly. Consumer beware. They are safe but tread lightly. I wanted to add them to the database so at least folks may know what they are in for, though most, including myself may hop on routes not knowing what they are. Until I get some cleaning runs on them, either enjoy as they are or bring a brush! Thanks!

Comments: Glad you enjoyed the route, Brett. I adjusted pro recommendation to say the #3.5 isn't necessary. Though there are quite a few pieces that aren't necessary.

Comments: Nice shot, nice spot. Unique hangout above the canyon. Taken from somewhere between topout of BBW and SG?

Comments: Yes, Shaun, it was very small crimp/pinch, and wasn't good beta to begin with. Can see it better in next photo of the series. Not surprised it's gone, but I remember not using it on the send but placed that piece at waist level from the flaring jam.

Comments: Big thanks to JJ Schlick and Wade Forrest for the support on my first lead attempt and Eric Deschamps for the belay on my redpoint.

I gotta recommend Lost Highway as a fitting and excellent option for a warm-up for this route.

Comments: There is a variation to the 2nd pitch that most likely has been climbed before. Instead of staying in the dihedral, traverse left to the edge and follow a broken crack up to a mostly hand crack splitter, where the angle breaks and heads for short right facing dihedral with some loose blocks. You can also start from Edge of an Age, staying on the arete instead of traversing into the "tooth". Maybe 5.9+ or so, 1-2 stars. Would need some cleaning up to keep it safe for the grade.
