Comments: The route is amazing and super clean.

PITCH 5 NEEDS A BOLT - the first ascensionist beta for the pitch is incredibly unsafe for a ground up attempt where you might fall.

Pitch 5 needs 1 bolt down and to the right at the end of the roof for the safety of the first and second. This would pull the rope off the arete and make any falls at the crux safe for leader and follower.

For the leader, I placed "3 shoulder length slings clipped together" under the roof - s... more >>

Comments: Colin - PM'd with longer rambling.

Above the old bolt pin anchor I think 1 goes before the scoop in the corner and the other about 12 feet below the other pin and bolt at the crux, above the scoop.

Thanks!

Comments: The most secure of the full value climbs up the middle of the Diamond. It also climbs the fastest of the center routes with solid jams the whole way except the 2 bolt traverse. Once you get there, the last 4 pitches are mind blowing!

For the rotten corner P4, has anyone done/tried the finger crack just to the left? It's on solid rock and looked like 5.11. It disappears right at the slab which might make the last couple moves spicy. Of note, the rotten corner'@SEMIC... more >>

Comments: P3 if you go straight up the twin splitters to the curving roofs and over, then right through the next towards the obvious, right-facing corner you are deposited at a small roof at the base of said obvious corner. The corner has a fixed nut to protect a fun but difficult entry into the dihedral which provides great climbing. It's a good way to add another 10+ pitch as opposed to going left then right over paths of least resistance.

P4. The 11a option protects really well, it... more >>

Comments: This is a fun alternate approach to Broadway as opposed to the death chimney, I mean North Chimney. It's two fun pitches with a bit of simul on the first. The rock is bomber, and it's relatively safe from rockfall.

Comments: Amazing route, super sustained climbing the entire way, and all on solid rock. It's pitch after pitch of classic climbing with the crux being my least favorite pitch (it's a bit wandery and could use a bit of traffic), so don't expect D1's fabulous finishing crux.

CONDITION ALERT: P4 as described here, P3 in the Fixed Pin guide at 11d (which is part of P3 and P4 here) is missing its fixed pins. I am guessing the kn... more >>

Comments: Anyone climb the Invisible Wall free? I'd be excited to hear about the 11+ R pitch, specifically where that R is, and any other beta from someone who has climbed it.

Comments: The bolt is loose. If whoever climbs it next brings a wrench, it would be a huge favor. I did my best hand tightening, but that doesn't really count.
