Comments: How about cable draws on all of the bolts?

If it's possible to camouflage the draws, I've got some great spray paint. I'll even hang em if needed.

Comments: Fun. I climbed it to the anchors of Texas Sucks/Easy to Remember. I found appropriate gear the entire way: a yellow C3 deep in a pocket just after pulling up onto the no-hands rest, and a 0.4 C4 on the top part of Easy to Remember. Will definitely do again.

Comments: If you look closely, it looks like the rope is between his leg and the rock. I think it just lines up with the line his rolled-up pants makes. Hmmm.

Yeah...so bring yer friggen' headlamp, so you don't have to climb the last pitch and do the entire descent with an iPhone shoved in-between your helmet and head with the flashlight on....

Good times. Heard there was a repeat attempt on it, would love to hear how it went and if there are plans to go back for another round.

Comments: Nice couch at the base of Beginner's Luck...makes the place look like a dump, paired with all the trash at the parking area.

I wonder how much longer we'll be allowed to climb here?

Comments: The line follows the rope down into the snow/rock bands, around the corner to the right, and into the chimney system where you can see the south-facing bare rock band.

I believe your last piece of pro is not in view in this picture, that's how far down it is. Yikes.

Comments: I laughed when I saw that bolt sticking that far out of the rock. I wiggled it around and didn't feel very confident in it. There was a good BD .5 C4 placement I used instead.

Comments: Pitch 2 is pretty fun and worth doing at least once. Wish it were longer. Better than pitch 1 in my opinion. We continued up above pitch 2 for a 3rd pitch. Wide hands through an overhanging bulge. Felt 5.10-ish (PG-13).

Comments: I enjoyed the route. Better than I thought it would be with a few memorable pitches. We did the original first pitch to the very top to also enjoy the adventure coming back down. It was a neat experience 'canyoneering' on the descent and passing all the airplane wreckage.

Comments: Tim,

A 70m rope will for sure work. I run laps on the Watch Crystal Crack and Apes of Wrath with my 60m rope, just barely. Keep in mind this is just to the top of the first pitch anchors, where Apes and WC meet on the nice ledge with the 3 bolted anchor.
