Comments: Looks like this has been covered but just in case... News flash: Lynn Hill is still ALIVE and well. Might want to rethink the name. Just a suggestion.

Comments: 5.8, LOL! And ppl call ME a sandbagger. The traverse left of the 2nd bolt is protected well by the bolt but a 5.8 rating is just asking for hatemail and/or injured climbers. I pulled it clean but not by much. After that, yes, there's a heady runout on easier ground but if you're comfortable on 'chise runouts, you probably won't mind much. It's your follower that'll be looking at a big swinging fall if they come off at the crux, just after cleaning the 2nd bolt.

I see that t... more >>

Comments: Spoiler beta: We tunneled under the rock he's straddling here and didn't rope up until we were standing on top the boulder above his head in the photo. Can't say the climbing he's on now is necessarily worth it since we didn't really cover it but it didn't seem like it at the time. That "pitch" (for lack of a better term) ended up being about 12 feet of actual climbing and one piece of gear in our case.

Comments: I think something may have broken off near the middle of p2. Super hard slabby section. After peeling off several times, going left/right and trying different things I yanked on the bolt to get my fat ass up it. Maybe I missed something but my partner ended up doing the same thing after me and i consider him to be a fairly good slab climber.

Comments: Glad you all are ok Climberz!

Could this be a mixed metals/galvanic corrosion scenario? Fairly big difference between the rust levels on hanger and bolt. Possibly galvanized or stainless hanger and carbon steel bolt?

Comments: I am perplexed as to how all you skinny bastards are fitting through that wedge. I got my fat ass stuck, shredded my shirt, broke my sunglasses and scratched my arms all to hell before finally getting back out and I'm only 170 pounds and just shy of 6 feet tall.

Comments: Really hope it was rats (4legged kind) Angel. I'll help you look around for them next time we're up there. Awfully kind offer Geir. Just another reason I like this community. :)

Comments: P1 is a technical challenge off the deck for two bolts then it's a well-protected 5.7 run to the ledge. Our party broke two holds off the 3rd pitch - I would recommend not soloing anything there or on p2 for that matter.. your choice.

The rest of the route after the vegetated ledge is pure gold. Build anchor at piton belay with #2 (up high) and #3 plus the piton. That frees up all your .5-1" doubles for the last pitch.

As stated before, there's lots of potential for stuck rope... more >>

Comments: You're spot on Brad. A hold broke off right where you are. It was a big "disk" shaped wafer wedged down in a crack.

Comments: Climbed this again last weekend and a block came off through the lower stuff below the ledge. I didn't really see that it affected the overall grade that much but that specific section is maybe a letter grade stiffer.

Comments: It's a 5.9. All bolts if i remember correctly. Fun and worth doing if you're up there. You're talking about the one that's straight ahead if you were walking out of the little porthole tunnel right?
