Location: MN : Tettegouche SP (North Shore... : Palisade Head

Comments: Jessica, there are no permanent anchors for top roping any Palisade Head routes, you have to build your own. Bring a standard rack and some very long chord/runners. Sometimes you use cracks, other times trees, sometimes both. It's also a good idea to have a piece of carpet to put between your anchor and the edge of the cliff, it is very sharp in some places.

Shovel Point does have some permanent anchors, but only above a couple routes. Again, you'll need some very long runners.

Comments: My friend Jon and I climbed the route in March 2014 for the first time. Quite an adventure! He wrote up a nice summary of the day.

Comments: Ice on Mt. McRae is not in at this point.

Also important to know that the routes on Mt. McKay are currently closed due to access issues. They are on reservation land and are currently posted 'no tresspassing'.

Ice in Orient Bay and Kama Bay is in.

Comments: My partner and I both thought that it would be better for the pitch two belayer to use an anchor about 15' right of the anchor that's at the base of the second pitch. It's a more protected position and we added a second fixed pin. Check it out. We also thought the first pitch was easy but sketchy, and the second pitch solid M7.

Comments: Follow the road until it drops steeply down to the mine. At this point follow a well traveled trail off to the right.

Comments: Left-most route on the over hanging wall you walk by on the way to Swiss Cheese, Single Malt Seam, etc. it's a good idea to stick clip the first bolt.

Comments: I got back on this route again last summer, and found that some small crystals have broken off since the FA. It's harder traversing from the steep schist to the base of the crack than it was a few years ago. I'd say it's moving toward the realm of 10+.

Comments: After I did some fairly extensive cleaning, I did an on-sight lead of this line on June 21, 1986. At the time I thought I did the FA of the line, maybe not. Here's the route and gear description from my notes.

Overhanging face to right of Socket Wrench. Climb obvious finger and hand crack 40' to where it ends and ledges go off left. From here, climb straight up, protecting a seam with 1.5-2.5 stoppers and #1 and 2 RP's, while using flakes for holds. Work up and left (crux) until you ... more >>

Comments: Ok, speaking of the route (black bolts) from where this photo was taken. I called it Joint Effort and put it in a couple years ago, then kind of forgot about it. I thought it was a decent route that went about 5.8, unless you start up the bald shoulder left of the trough/gully. Seemed like it was 5.10 for a couple few moves that way, but I'd go up and clip the bolt first.

Comments: I lost an Enforcer glove, right hand. I may have left it behind while climbing at Sandstone on about the 19th of January. Beverage of choice to whomever finds it and gets it back to me.
Cheers!

Comments: Randy, I don't get you at all. The thread had nothing to do with rating comparisons between different areas of the country. Everyone knows they vary and, who cares? Usually, when I can't believe I'm doing something,I shouldn't be. And by the way, congratulations on your flashes and onsights.

Comments: With no ice, moving past the last bolt is a good bit harder than 7+.

Comments: As you know, Gene started the names of his routes with 'Just', which is why I thought he was in on it. I climbed with Paul and Gene for the first time in '86, I don't think that was the first year he was in the Needles.

Comments: Anaphalactic Shock is the route to the right of the arete, as you're looking at the rock. I've always gotten to it by scrambling up and left from the base of Mr. Critical.
