Comments: There's about 30 established problems above Mason Lake, mostly in the large talus field. There's another dozen or so established around Upper Mason Lake (below the granite big wall) as well. Definitely a lot of potential around Cataract Reservoir, but the rock quality isn't quite as good as the upper stuff.

Comments: Not unclimbed. Don't have any route details, but I know this has been climbed on for at least a few decades.

Comments: I thought it might have been that one. I ticked it when I cleaned the problem, but didn't end up using it. It seemed harder to me using it.

Comments: I did it both ways and they both feel about V6. Pick your poison - easier moves to get to the last crimp left handed with a hard throw to the lip or a hard move to get he last crimp right handed and an easy move to the lip.

Comments: To elaborate on the description a little: It appears the original line follows the bolts via two sets of double barrel pockets, then left to the obvious jug rail. But, it seems much easier to follow a line of pockets and crimps about 5 feet left of the third bolt. Also, the dyno mentioned in the book (from the jug rail up and right) is very contrived and much harder than going to a good left hand pinch. Long story short, if you take the path of least resistance left of the bolt line it's mor... more >>

Comments: This route is called Spare Tire. The original FA was done by Jim Scott entirely on gear, then Meg and Rand re-cleaned it and added a few bolts (with permission).

Comments: Although most disagree, I think this is a much better route than First Best. Also, instead of going left to the anchors, you can continue up through the wide crack in the left facing dihedral which leads to the Orange Crack 1st pitch anchor. This makes it about a 100ft pitch.
