Comments: Stellar climbing, well protected, wild variation. The third pitch is simply superb. Weird fun boulder problem followed by RELENTLESS well protected thin water grooving. Must do.

Comments: If you can climb it, you should be able to clean it

Comments: Definitely no 10 plus moves, and there are 2 ledges you can actually sleep on, so I definitely would not put this one in the burly category

Comments: The fixed nut looks as if it may have been crushed by freeze thaw, I was too busy puking to get a good look.

Comments: Double ropes are definitely not needed as the gear stays in a good line except for one pocket on the left of the arete. An attentive belayer is the most important gear.

Comments: Tony, I know it was a while back, but do you recall if you stayed on the arete, on its left side? There is some stout face climbing up form the Margin of Profit midpoint ledge, but then any movement left above puts you at a no hands ledge, too tempting to avoid. The next sunny day I will give it a go. Hang tough and look us up next time you are in the south, david

Comments: I am not sure where to start with this. The climber says he started on Margin of profit, but mentions jamming up past a roof. There is no roof on Margin of profit. He then mentions jamming up the dihedral and past a second roof. There is no dihedral, or second roof, on Margin of profit. The description matches the start of Hidden assets, except for where he mentions, the second roof, which there is none on Hidden asssets. Hidden assets, however, does have a horizontal crack heading to the ... more >>

Comments: Slab aretes are generally evil, but this one protects better than it looks, however the belayer needs to stay on target. There is a bolt, but it helps little and kind of throws the line off.

Comments: The roof is intimidating, but probably easier than the corner below. You can load it with gear and just swing out with no worries

Comments: If the route were 50 ft tall it would be impressive, but its barely 30 ft tall and graded softer than my Southface Bimbo down jacket. No hard moves, but a great route to run laps on, LOTS of laps.


Location: TN : Sunset Park : Sunset North : Stan's Crack (5.8+)

Comments: Probably the best 8 at sunset with perfect cadillac smooth jamming and gear a go-go. I think you could throw cams at the route and they would be bomber! There are anchors off to the right at two thirds height, but if you have a 3.5 and or a 4 BD then continue straight up the crack for the more natural line. Large hands will keep the grade moderate, but my small handed wife stems it at about 9+

Comments: Stans is probably the best 5.8 crack at sunset, it has gear a go-go and cadillac smooth hand jams wherever you want them. I think you could throw a cam at the crack and it would be bomber! A bolted anchor is off to the right at about two thirds height, but a more fun and natural line takes you straight up the steep crack. A 3.5 or a 4 old BD is useful here. If you have big hands the grade stays at 8plus, but my small hands wife stems her way out and gives it a 9. A must do!

Comments: Very steep for the grade, but overall a mellow route with stances below each hard section, could be harder if you dont find the 5.9 way through the crux.
