Comments: I would give it 4 stars if it wasn't for the traversy start. Once you're done with the traverse, it has sustained varied climbing with great movement on clean rock.

Also, it was named after a friend's reference to a cat - what did you think it was?

Comments: IIRC, it takes good nuts in the corner. You may want to bring a couple of big hexes just in case.

Comments: This is a great warmup for the far left side - straightforward climbing, clean rock, and well-protected. Harder if you are short.

Comments: This route is stellar and well-protected. Do the chimney. No need for any special gear that way (no micros, no extra wide, no offsets). This route eats nuts - bring lots of slings.

#5 is not needed. I'm a girl whom #4 cracks make cry, and I sewed it up with a bomber #3 at the first wide spot and walked a #4 way up high. Some solid hand and fist jams can be found in constrictions, but mostly good cheater face holds in and out of the crack.

The only thing to add is that i... more >>

Comments: What an eye candy! I hope more women give this 5stars, so it goes on the image of the day slideshow. Just to balance out numerous images where women are objectified.

Comments: The chockstones just to the right of the climber in this picture: www.mountainproject.com/v/106046516 are VERY LOOSE! Don't belay from the cave, but rather from the left side of the boulder at the base. It would be nice if someone can trundle the blocks on rappel (we didn't have a second rope, so had to be lowered with some shenanigans with an 80). Oh and btw, 80M doesn't make it - the climb must be close to 160, rather than 150.

Comments: There are so many awesome things going on in this photo - I love it! Like shoe laces over the soles, approach shoes taped together, and a tiny little red backpack that makes it look like the dude borrowed it from his kindergartner.

Comments: Did this in Sep. 2012 - after much slab traversing back and forth and soloing some sketchy terrain, finally got on the route at the top of P6 (above the two-bolt anchor, at the base of the 5.8 hand crack). If I were to do it again, here is how I'd approach it - take the airplane gully all the way down to the river, locate the "Golden Boulder" (big golden boulder on the valley floor) - the route is straight above the Golden Boulder - just climb up the slabs the path of the least resistance. I kno... more >>

Comments: +1 what Erik said, please read the Watch article cited above. Please yield to the traffic and please do not park right in front of the "Road Closed" gate, but rather park in the designated parking pullout on the left.

Comments: Just a heads up, there was a big rockfall on Halloween night 2012 - friends witnessed it from the Creek Pasture around 5pm. We climbed at the Cliffs the next day and found a rubble with bus-size boulders just right from the Puzzle Factory. That whole stretch of the trail is destroyed - thread lightly.

Comments: As of 8/2/12, fixed ropes are still in place on the descent. Also, there is a big hornets nest in the beginning of the peg traverse on P2 - beware and make sure to extend the left corner piece before moving on (seemed like the tension was bringing the rope too close to the nest and riling the bees up).

Comments: This route can go entirely on passives. Small nuts are way more helpful, IMO. Questionable rock in some spots.

Comments: Awesome, awesome, awesome! Felt a bit like the Gunks climbing - pull overhang, rest, pull another overhang, rest... Because of good rests, felt a bit easier than the Ames, but it's definitely a lot steeper.

Next time, I would use the V-threads for raps - on the freehanging rappel off the bolts, my ropes dislodged a microwave-sized ice chunk off the icicle that luckily only brushed me on my thigh, phew!

Comments: 60m rope comfortably gets you all the way to the tree from the road. One double rope rappel or two single ones (there is an intermediate above the first ice bulge) will get you down.

Comments: Hey, Skyeler. Glad you are ok. My partner has your cams, if your friends are still at the Creek, would be glad to get them back to you. Am curious - where did you pull the block from? Above or below the chains? The crack below the chains looks super clean.

Comments: 60m rope just makes it to the ground. I would start the climb on the handcrack on the face just to the left of the corner - you can still make it to the roof traverse if you start it on the face. Makes a more sustained aesthetic line.
