Comments: What a fantastic route! Wish there was more of it. I highly recommend starting the route directly on the arete instead of to the left. This adds 3 or so bouldery moves. If you want beta on the roof, read the next sentence. In the overhang, stay to the left and make moves to get your left hand on the point of the large triangle-shaped feature. From there, make a long reach with your right to the lip of the overhang. From that position, you can pretty easily crank through it. Good luck!

Comments: Nice and straightforward if you figure out where to put your right foot. A nice break from the many puzzling sequences you come up against in Big Bend.

Comments: What a fun problem! Just tricky enough to be interesting. The crux is figuring out how to hold that jumble of sloped dishes before you go to the top. (Pinch it)

Comments: Not quite as long, or as good as Cheerleaders Gone Hippie, but certainly worth taking a lap on! Some good movement on solid rock.

Comments: Most mellow route at The Palace. I can't count how many people I have belayed on this route for their first outdoor lead. Nice on ramp for beginners.

Comments: I'll voice my agreement about the grade. I personally think that River Rats climbs like a 5.6 (except for one 5.8ish move), Turtle Head seems more like a 5.9-, and Orange You Glad seems like 5.8-.

Comments: Soloing Cable Route vs. bringing rope and rack:

In good conditions (no water, ice, or snow), there is no reason that a climber comfortable with leading 5.9 cannot solo this route without gear. There are only about 15 feet that could be considered 5th class climbing, and it's right at the beginning. After that, you have roughly 70 feet of slab reminiscent of the final approach on the Keyhole Route (just a bit steeper) before the scramble to the top begins.

In my personal opinion, hauling up a r... more >>

Comments: I got on this yesterday, and it definitely was trickier than I expected. Sharp, small holds and a bit cryptic. I was straight up stumped at the third bolt - I couldn't find any holds to pull myself up to the slab on. I am about 5'10".

Comments: Probably the best climb on the main (south) face at the Palace. Thoughtful and interesting climbing, lock-off moves on crimps for the crux around the 4th bolt.

Comments: Three stars for sure. Shorter than the routes at upper echelon, but super sustained. I'd say that it is solid 5.12b - harder than ODK and maybe tougher than Tailspin. A couple bits of loose rock, but pretty clean overall. Basically 30 feet of thoughtful stemming to a large ledge - then straight into 50 feet of pumpy, overhanging climbing on sloped pinches and blocky 2 or 3 finger pockets. Classic.

Comments: I hate making negative comments - but here goes. The climbing isn't fun, the stretch to the anchors is runout and awkward, and cleaning this sucker is a royal pain. Not worth it. Climb the 11- to the right for much better quality.
