Comments: I may have been completely whacked out pumped, but it felt a bit harder than the stated grade.

Comments: That camera is so tilted to make this look steep. I know for a fact you almost fell on a 5.6 in the 'Gunks. In fact, I know you almost knuckled on a 5.0.

Comments: That Weseley dude is soft. I watched him brownpoint a 5.6 in the 'Gunks once. He has no idea what he's talking about.

Comments: Save your #4 cams for the upper section on P2, otherwise you'll be running it out about 40 feet.

Comments: Best route in CO.

P4 as noted here is not 5.7. It doesn't become 5.7 until AFTER the scary bolts above the anchor at the top of the 5.10 pitch.

Comments: This route apparently used to have bolts at the top but now they have been chopped.

Comments: Nice finish to Crescendo, but it felt MUCH easier than 10a. In fact, it you can handle overhangs, the extension felt easier than the crux at the top of Crescendo.

Comments: definitely clip the anchors to the left. The ones at the top of this climb are scary rusted.

Comments: P3 felt WAY harder than 5.7. Not sure if it was the correct place to go, but we did the crack in the corner, between the 5.9 flake above us to the left and the 10ish crack on the face to the right.

Comments: A bit harder than 5.2 because of the polished start. Has some fun moves for the grade, but overall, kind of boring.

Comments: Not really sure there's any need to go back into the corner once one hits the face on the left. The slab moves on the face are fun and at the grade. The move back to the crack above the roof is also pretty fun at that point, too.

Comments: Intimidating at first, but moves are pretty easy for the grade. P1 is long.

Comments: That far right piton is either no longer there or should be pulled. It was wiggling when we used it. Not sure if we got a chance to pull it on the way down because we were fighting daylight.

Comments: Pffft...piece of cake, right? My first aid lead and it was on a solid 130 feet of quarter-inchers with wingnuts. I pumped out before reaching the first anchor, so a buddy finished that up.

Topping out on the summit via a tyrolean traverse was fun (scary). The rock is considerably better after the first two pitches. I mean, it's no longer mud at that point.

If you have two 60m ropes then you can rap all the way down from the top of the third pitch anchors (skipping the scary-as-shit first anch... more >>

Comments: A bit of a choss-fest up to the last pitch, and then it's all worth it. Really surprised there is as much loose stuff on P1 and P2.

P1 felt more like 5.4 in some sections and the very start of P3 felt more like 5.5.

Comments: Pretty easy climb, but one fall and you're probably flying through the air on one side of the arrete or other with your rope searing against the soft sandstone. I think the exposure increases the grade on this climb.

Comments: This route was soft and probably would be fair at 5.6. Still, it was a good warm-up.
