Comments: Aemerick congrats on your first lead. You can indeed very easily get to the bolted rap station at the top of Arrow if you climb Easy V to the top of the cliff. Two raps with a single and one rap with doubles.

Comments: Bolted anchors were not there when the route went in and they are there for rapeling the route not as an anchor from which to belay. The first pitch comes up onto the GT ledge left of where the notch in the overhang is. Many climbers set a gear anchor in the right facing corner by Limelight or right in the middle of the face to belay from. From any of those spots the notch is up and right. The best way to do Arrow is to forgo the belay all together and run it in to one long rope stretching p... more >>

Comments: Could not disagree more with Worth on this one. Mr. P's is a good climb. You can also do it one pitch from the ground for about 200 feet of continuous climbing. It has several interesting sections with some moves to unlock. There are also a number of fun steep spots with good exposure. The climbing has good variety as well. Both of its neighbors are quite good, but this route is not squeezed in or contrived and takes a completely independent line from Madame G's and Le Teton. This would ... more >>

Comments: Benjamin I really think that it is what you are used to The overhang on Modern Times is definitely not 5.10. As a matter of perspective I do much of my climbing at the Gunks. On a trip a few years back to Red Rocks I found the 11.b roof pitch on Levitation to be easier than the 5.9 chimneys on Epinephrine. Those Red Rock grades are accurate, I just have much more experience and better technique on overhangs. I had waited a while when I first started leading to do Modern Time's, being intimi... more >>

Comments: Some people just get scared and there is nothing wrong with that. That is about as easy and mellow spot that you will find on any climb. There are ledges and large holds everywhere and the grade at that point is 5.3 and really fun.

Comments: Jeff I agree fantastic climb. Not sure what you were looking at for gear off of the ledge, but it really does not get any more G on a climb than it is right there. You can get in bomber nuts, cams and tricams in multiple places essentially from the ledge until you start to traverse right. People may have some trouble seeing it all or placing it all due the pumpy nature of the climbing there.

Comments: I'm not sure what gear you were using, but for me every placement on the first pitch is rock solid gear. There are no iffy placements on this pitch and there is no specialty gear needed. For some reason this pitch got an R in the old Swain guide. This pitch is PG and only because of the crux, which requires that you make a move or two with your feet over the gear. Other than that you are dong beautiful aesthetic face moves on good gear.

Comments: I think the R may come more from the tree and even the ledge then any lack of gear. There is a good portion of the climb if you come off there is a good chance of hitting the tree.

Comments: Bad advice about not placing gear at the start unless you are sure that you will hit that move. Blue alien is bomber and I have seen it catch more than one person there. With that good gear you will not deck unless you have a really bad belay.

Comments: Have not led it in a few years but that second pin is unnecessary as it takes gear, both aliens and small nuts.
