Comments: I think what everyone is missing is that in 1957 standing on your belayers shoulders or hands was standard practice. I got it myself, but being 6' 2" helps. I also went up the 5.9 first time, backed down and went around the corner- all seemed 5.6-5.7.

Comments: We were wondering where you were. Vantage now? was it the rain in 11wurt ?
No offense taken, but it's Vantage, didn't seem that bad to me. I tried to pry that block out, it seems to be wedged. Now, Bob Dylan ( the route ) scares me more, those stacked blocks at the top- yikes.

Comments: yeah, I could see it being placed on lead, a good stance to drill there. The Clint book mentions the anchor being stolen. I can't remember what was there before someone added the new sport anchor. Did it always end that way, or did it go off left? I will think about it some more before moving the bolt, but thanks for your impute.

Comments: I am one of those fools that likes this route, and have climbed it a few times, and have come to the conclusion that the bolt that protects the first crux roof move is in the wrong place, it should be on the left side, it forces the rope across your body and if you fall, you will be tangled up or flipped upside down, I am tall and stick this move but it is awkward as is. I would move the bolt over to the left.

Comments: Description
Pitch 1) 5.9 traverse from Turkey ledge at north end of the Bullet, step down to bolted anchor right of Eurasian Eyes. Small trees, hand traverse sloping holds, placing pro for your follower. It is tempting to clip the bolts that start climbs along this traverse, but it is hard and scary for the follower to unclip them.
Pass bolted anchor at base of Fight Club and head up onto ledges to pedestal behind cedar tree.This is really hard for 5.9.

Pitch 2 ) first ascent calls thi... more >>

Comments: cleaned up the mess at anchor 4/22/16. cleaned mess of slings, added quick link to piton, used cord and rap ring. This route is quite a bit harder then a few 5.10's out there. I wish I had a #4 and #5.

Comments: the top of pitch 2 anchor took a hit, 1 hanger still usable but flattened over.
We will be doing this again, needs more traffic.

Comments: one of the more splitter hand jam routes, a bit harder then air guitar, if you don't walk the #3's you may want 3 of them.

Comments: yeah, I have hiked over there from where the trail heads up around the right end of Lookout point wall, and cut out right where it gets steep going up the gully, someone would have to do trail work and develop the wall to make it worth venturing over.

Comments: Good times at the old choss pile. It never ceases to amaze me how Bill Robins would ground up OS these first ascents, so scary to even TR. I have tried to lead some of these but now TR solo to not endanger anyone, and be sure nobody is below.
