Comments: This photo shows the first half of Earwax Crack really well. And it gets better all the way to the finish.

Comments: Hi Wayne, I almost did put one there. The groove is so short I decided to put the anchor at the top. I could add one there though.

Comments: This is the ultimate finish to a three pitch route . P3 is not complete and unsafe, so I do not recommend it. There are two very large flakes that need to be dealt with afters hours. As soon as it's done we will let you know . Until then enjoy the first 2 pitches .

Comments: I did the whole route a long time ago and remember it was really good. The run out is a little bigger on the last pitch then the well bolted p1 .

Comments: This route is on my list to clean up. Replace bolts and scrub. The creek is easy to get up after a couple days of no rain.

Comments: I like to protect traverse with a .3 or .4 BD cam. Someone did some cleaning at the start its still dirty but it was worse a year ago. I did so much digging on the top and bottom before I placed the bolts. The lay back section was as is. Fun climb totally worth doing.

Comments: I have , and I think being at the top of p1 would be safer then being on the ground and I've seen it done that way too.

Comments: Yes the way I set it up is , when you thread the bolt also use the fallen tree . It should have another bolt but I didn't have one and the tree is perfect but not obvious because you are standing on it. originally I only used the tree or double rope rap from p1 law and order's finish.

Comments: I rapelled this route 7/29 with a 70 but had to down climb the first move so it can be done with a 70 carefully.

Comments: You can see in this picture the right variation is clean . The little bushes come back quick here but at least they are a small plant .

Comments: Oh I only added one at the top of the flake . I never got around to doing the rest. I think mike did it .

Mike, where the two bolts are that protect the mantle move to get to the crack , I wanted to move that clip up higher so it protects the move better . And did you replace the carabiniers with links at the anchor ? Moving from the top of the flake left I wanted to add a bolt there . And then reposition the next two bolts .

This one of my favorite climbs . Thanks Jon for the props but I'm ... more >>
