Comments: this is the wall that sits just above the collins highway, and is not the gold wall. that crack that splits the roof to climbers right is the 2nd pitch of dirty harry. im guessing you guys linked into that roof on this climb you did here. I've looked at that face several times mapping lines, but never ventured up it. nice work.

Comments: Robert I would say take a single set from blue tcu to #1 camalot, and maybe medium nuts. You would be climbing a fair distance on p3 between bolts without pro as many of the pins on the route aren't protection quality, and serve only as route markers.

Comments: 2nd what Mr. Hummus said. The bolt is bad, and can slide out of the hole upwards of 1/2 inch.

Comments: Erik don't change the route without first contacting Fred Henion. He is all for safe, fun, well done routes, and will be open to your thoughts. You can find him on facebook.

We just always stay to the left up there and only use the bottom most part of the flake for a foot when clipping the chains.

Comments: Cold Fusion is the popular main season ski descent as it is lower angle, wider, and generally more friendly. The grunge is usually saved for the spring when the snowpack has firmed up, and skiing conditions can be considered safe at the steep 50+ degree upper slope. Either way i'm sure it's a fun climb for some, and a great descent for others!

Comments: There is loose block of considerable size at the top of the crux fingers section at the first slopey horizontal. Be careful!

Comments: Beware this is one of the classic couloirs in the wasatch for skiing. If you see skiers ahead of you it would be wise to either catch up to them or bail as they're going to send debris onto your during their descent.

Comments: Conversely if you want to french free or fraid through the tough free sections this climb is an absolute riot, and goes way faster than something like moonlight or lunar X. Highly recommend not using aiders or jugs until the last pitch off toquerville tower.

Comments: The free move there is great! Probably no harder than 5.5 as you hand traverse that rail then throw a leg in the wideness.

Comments: I'm guessing those eluding to a bivy at the block slept in a portaledge as the rocker block is only 5 ft x 3 ft. The best natural bivy low on the route is the ledge before the bolt ladder.

Comments: Bloom 2nd edition claims bad anchor. It now sports 2 star drives equalized with a 1/2 in wedge bolt with a SS Metolius hanger. Bring a new #5 camalot.

Comments: Inverts aren't mandatory for this thing. We had fist jams at the bottom. But if you want to be fancy or have small hands I guess you can go upside down.

Comments: Single rack from blue tcu to #1 camalot, a few stoppers in the small (but not tiny) to mid range, 12(ish) draws, and a 70m cord. This'll get you up/down weed killer and weed be gone comfortably.

Comments: If you're looking to simply climb the first pitch the crux is just getting to the first bolt. After you've gotten to the two nubs 8ft up the remaining is in the low 10 grade.
