Route in great shape now. Had the route to ourselves on a Saturday! We found the "crux" pitch to be easier than the second pitch, fairly low angled and solid placements.

P1 - WI2 (soloed)P2 - WI3+, steep moves between ledges, difficult to protect well.P3 - steep snow (soloed) P4 - "crux" WI3, more sustained than previous pitches, but [relatively] low angled with solid placements and good pro. Was expecting much harder.

Gear: 6-8 screws of various lengths + small nuts/RPs for the bela... more >>

In, fat. P1 - WI2, P2 - WI3+, P3 - WI3.

Little/no snow on route, bomber sticks, good ice screw placements.

Comments: 10/20/04 - Route in great shape; mostly ice, not much mixed (except about one move at the crux, behind the chockstone). Approach is heinous right now. Expect to post-hole through deep soft snow up the lambs slide. This was exhausting and slow, but the route was worth it. Floatation would help.

Current conditions:P1 - WI3P2 - WI2, steep snowP3 - WI4, M3-4We rapped off after the crux pitch (did not go to broadway) which was quick with 3 double rope (50 m) rappels.

Comments: Nice photos! Julian, you must have been the party that passed us. I would say the left-hand start goes at about AI3-, M4. I am pretty inexperienced with this whole M-climbing biz, though, so not too familiar with ratings. The crux of this pitch is definitely the M and not the AI. Earlier in the day/week it might have held more ice, as it appears from the photo posted by Rick. By the time I was on it, one section was very mixed and difficult for me.

Comments: In as of 7/11/04. 3 parties on route today. More ice than mixed, but the ice was of variable quality. Melting fast!!!! We found 4 pitches of climbing. Steepening snow fields (soloed) lead to two choices: the left line is steeper and more direct, while a line to the right is hidden behind a ridgeline, but I am guessing it is significantly easier, as we were passed by another party who opted for the right line. We took the left line, Dark Star Direct.

Comments: The "difficult to protect" pitch is really not that difficult to protect. However, you must take placements when you can, because in between good placements there are no placement options.

Comments: We did Grand Giraffe's first three pitches to Body Tremors to Smoke and Mirrors. This combo makes for a stellar day.

P1. 5.9 - There is a parallel crack just to the left of the upper part of this crack. I stayed in the crack on the right, but using the other crack might make it a bit easier. I really enjoyed this pitch.

P2. 5.6 (5.4 according to Rossiter) - this must've been the toughest 5.4 I've ever done. More like 5.6.

P3. 5.10a - my partner, Mike Flanagan, led this with a #3 & @POUN... more >>

Comments: GRAND GIRAFFE - BODY TREMORS - SMOKE & MIRRORS = 3 STARS. Body tremors itself - 2 stars.5.8s in my opinion: Good pro with long runouts between placements.

Comments: This is a nice way to finish Grand Giraffe, rather than the standard finish (which I've never done). I didn't think this felt any harder than 10a onsight. Pretty sustained, good pro where you need it. Nice climb.

Comments: I thought the first pitch was the hardest 5.9 I've climbed in eldo or elsewhere. Sustained, tricky moves in the crux layback, and add to that infrequent and somewhat tricky gear.
