Comments: Only TR'd to the final bolt, but 12+ seems like it could be a solid sandbag....

Comments: Also worth noting that it looks like the next 30 feet or so would go free with a considerable effort from some strong monkeys.

Comments: C Brown: agreed. Those bolts on the book pitch are definitely hurting and could use some retro action. I'll happily contribute to the steel fund.

Comments: "Seneca standards," eh? And here I was thinking the point of the YDS was a universal standard by which to rate the relativity difficulty of routes across the country/world. How mistaken I was.

Comments: Linked P3 and P4 (short 11a pitch and crux roof pitch), would highly recommend this approach. Eliminates that awkwardly short 11a pitch and less comfy belay stance, gives you more rope out for softer catches in the cruxes, and is easier to lower back to if you are working the pitch.
A quick word on aiding: A hold recently broke on the 12+ open book pitch (the clipping hold for the first bolt). Its unclear whether this was from aiding or not, but from the nature of things seems likely it could h... more >>

Comments: Quite fun. Although certainly not "the best multipitch sport route within 1 hour of Boulder", it is still a worthy outing. Surprisingly pumpy pitches due to the style: lots of flat, difficult to find holds.

Comments: Climbed today. Lots of thin, poorly bonded ice (pretty warm temps) but still tons of fun. I'd say pushing M6 on the grade but solid pro for the most part. Could certainly use a few cold night, lots of stuff falling off. Took us 4.5 hours bottom to top at a moderate pace, so I agree that "Grade IV" is a bit dubious.

Comments: Granted this is a confusing face in general, but we tried following this route description and found it just slightly better than useless. Could definitely use some beefing up with better references to cognizable features. At least this face is so featured, no matter what you do you aren't really going to get yourself in trouble.
