Comments: A beak ladder? It seems to me that if one drills a hole, he should install a bolt. What is the thinking here?

Comments: The route does not end at the ledge with anchors. One can traverse around the back side and top out the summit block. Then downclimb the block to the anchors.
This is a clean aid tower! Leave your bongs in the car.

Comments: Good climb. Not nice. It is possible to get a tipped out #6 before committing to the crux. A second large piece would be nice to have.

Comments: As a not-5.12 climber, I can say that this thing hurts. Lots of potential to kick your belayer in the face, as it is hard from the moment you leave the ground.

Comments: Can we please stop saying "well bolted?" The correct term is "over bolted."

Comments: The book gives this route 5.8 C2+. I didn't lead the first pitch but it seemed, to me, to be pretty damn contrived for C1.

Edit per Jeremy: Sand-Bagged.

Comments: This thing is really good. It's no 5.10 though, and can be done with little or no O/W technique. Solid rock for the business up top, the bottom is a fisher though.

Comments: I don't know about extra greens. I was thinking I could have used extra grays (0.4?). Pretty fun route. Not terribly dirty except for the first pitch.

Comments: I don't know what 11a offwidth feels like, but I know what 10+ offwidth feels like and this was hard. I am of normal size.

Comments: All,

I'm wondering what the variation is called? One can either head up the ramp and do the (easier) hand crack, or continue straight up into the offwidth. Anyone know the story?

Comments: No love for this thing, huh? I thought it was a blast. Don't wear a helmet. Trail gear. Get stuck. Get unstuck. Try again. Get stuck again. Go around. Get back in. Pretty awesome #6 placement. The poop and risk of decapitation are worth the misery (if you're into that).

Comments: I've done both Foxtrot and Parallels (only on lead and neither clean). I thought that Parallels was harder than Foxtrot, but that's just like... you know... my opinion, man.

Comments: I just wanted to add that to rap this route with a single sixty would be stupid and inconsiderate of the parties below you.

Comments: This is not a gym climb. Be gentile with the soft desert rocks and conglomerates. I watched a 12-year-old-75-pounder scrape what must have been a pound of rock off of this thing (top rope). If you are unfamiliar with the soft nature of the soft rock in this area, maybe wait a few years for this one. Just one man's opinion.
