Comments: The bolts were place in the most solid rock, much of the rock in that middle section has a hollow sound if you take a hammer to it. This means the bolts are not in the most ideal place, but it works with a couple longer draws or back clean a bolt.

Comments: The dihedral fell off the wall this Winter, the route could be significantly harder.

Comments: Sam, I think Luke Stefurak added that bolt sometime between 2011 & 2013.

Comments: Some of the anchors could use a quicklink or two. Pitch 2 anchor could use one quic link, and pitch 5 anchor could use 2 quicklinks. Currently twists rope really badly when pulling rappels.

Comments: I edited my comment, since others above have stated the ethics and history of the area in question. I have no dog in this hunt and personally don't care, just wondering is sport climbing tactics appropriate for this side of the canyon. Is it ok to rap bolt routes on the "Dark Side"? or is it only ok for certain people to rap bolt routes?

Comments: New anchors on the route. Skip the first set of bolted anchors on the left, and continue up snow to new bolted anchors on the right before entering the chimney. 2nd pitch also has new anchors on the left across from where the old piton anchor used to be which is currently buried in ice. You can now rap the route with a single 70m rope, watch your ends on the first rap, walk down the ramp to the new anchor bolts for the first pitch, and from there, you will easily hit the ground. 2nd pitch is cur... more >>

Comments: 10'-15' of steep ice is not WI 5, the left side of the first pitch is WI 4 at most. WI 5 is usually at least 30'-60' of sustained steep ice by definition.

Comments: climbed this recently, webbing is not in good shape and should be replaced, one end of the webbing was just hanging on by a thread. Unfortunately did not have anything to replace it. Its a staggered 2 bolt anchor. One long piece of chain on the upper bolt and a couple quick links on the lower bolt would do the job.

Comments: Capt. Insano, you can camp up Camp Bird Road, but you will need 4WD and good tires as the road can be icy or packed snow. People camp up there in Winter, but it is going to be dark and cold. Why not spend $45 and get a warm place to stay and support the local economy if you are going to use the resources?

Comments: This area has received recent rockfall which has created this route. May still be an active rock fall zone, just fyi.

Comments: The piton on the pitch 3 peg traverse is getting pretty loose, might not hold too many more falls. Might be time to consider updating the piton or replacing it with a bolt.

Comments: Funny you did this one. We bouldered on the crack part last spring during a thunderstorm, and joked about putting this thing up.
