Comments: FWIW, there's a thread where these are "discussed." mountainproject.com/v/bolted-r...
I would disagree that the bolts are on Jailbait, but there are now 3 or 4 bolts protecting the start to S&M.

Comments: I did the left direct start variation (with pin and sling) and thought it was easily 5.9. I did this combined with the upper face out right as a single 60-m pitch but it ate up my rack. The Donkey's Ears 5.7 chimney is nothing less than spectacular. Echoing other's comments re the descent, we did three rappels and were forced to rope an exposed ledge traverse back to the righthand ridge to avoid the death scree. You should probably stop after two rappels and work right. Once you're on the r... more >>

Comments: The pitch 3 description here states: "Continue up the chimney until reaching a vertical crack. Continue on this vertical crack until a horizontal crack appears on the left (takes a great #2!) and then traverse back into the chimney." I chose to continue straight up the vertical crack for another 30-40 feet or so past the horizontal (as is shown in the '95 Falcon guide) until it ended, where I made a face traverse left to a nice belay ledge. This eliminated one pitch and provided what app... more >>

Comments: Fun route, survivable on a 95 degree day. We belayed as in the description given here, except for linking the final two pitches. The first belay tree is no more. Agree with going left to start the third rather than wandering right per the Falcon guide. I thought the chimney portion was really clean and some of the best climbing on the route.

Comments: Traverse left under the roof, go up the dihedral, work straight and up finish left. Protects moderately well using small tcu's to mid-sized cams, nothing special needed. You don't "need" wires.

Comments: Good stuff. I flunked reading comprehension on this one, only saw the first bolt on the upper slab and climbed the dihedral instead. Will go back but the dihedral is super so there's that. I'm 5'6" and had to stretch for a couple clips but the climbing itself posed no reach problems.
