Comments: Reportedly, on December 11th, 2015, a large and critical undercling block right in the middle of the bouldery crux was pulled off. This block allowed the climber to do the clip from low before embarking on the v4/5 crux. Reportedly, it now looks like a double digit boulder problem and will likely not be repeated often.

Comments: We went on a Saturday in April this year and got our permits a week in advance. We hoped the permit system might limit the crowds but it was mighty damn busy (it was a Saturday after all so that makes sense). It's not clear to me if there's a daily limit or not.

What's up with NM folks arguing about letter grades? 11b or 11c? 12c or 12d? haha it's a little sprayish...

Hate to break it to you but that's just climbers in general, not just NM. :)

Comments: I think it makes sense to have the separate areas here as the walls themselves are broken up by natural breaks. See this photo for the overview.

Admittedly it is a bit difficult to orientate oneself because many routes on some of the walls are not posted here.

Still don't get it. I'm following a pitch and stemming wide for the photo--that's all there is to it.

Comments: We felt this quite soft for 12a and I don't say that to be condescending...it's a really fun route and if you're a 5.11 climber, don't avoid this based on the 12a rating. It has lots of great 5.10+ climbing to a short, crimpy crux. I've been slapped around more by 11c routes elsewhere in the Red.

Comments: Benjamin...I know how to clip draws and what textbook clips look like. In my 17 years of clipping bolts, I've never once seen the negative impacts of draw clipped "not optimally" so I go with personal preference most of the time and only really pay attention to it when I think it really matters.

I also wear a helmet when I want which isn't all the time.

But thanks for the concern.

Excellent shot. The draws hanging from your harness are a little bit of a giveaway, though.

Thanks but giveaway of what? I don't understand what you're implying I guess.

Comments: Howdy Alex and Dustin. As an admin for the RRG area here on MP, I changed Alex's initial FA information to "First Recorded Ascent (FRA)" until it could get sorted out. Typically this approach works (as it has here) as more communication between users occurs. Thank you two for getting it sorted out.

Comments: I'd love to hear how folks are doing the start of this route to the first bolt. It felt super hard for 12a to me but maybe being 6'5" is a disadvantage here?

Comments: We climbed the two 5.11s on this wall this past weekend and really had a fun time on both routes. Some of the holds are incredible. It's still a bit more adventure than your standard sport climbing so touchy leaders may want to skip 'em but you're looking for a good pump and some pretty incredible holds, check these out.
Kudos to all your hard work, Rich.

Comments: Agreed, the three sectors setup was quite confusing. As of 9/23/2015, they've all been lumped into one Main Wall section again. If anyone finds any route sorting errors, please let me know.

Comments: Thanks for the comment of recollection, Jim.

The 21st Ascent, by the Yale Mountaineering Club, reached the summit on April 2, 1956. We spent the night in a small cave in the bowl below the "horn". Our informztion was to throw a rope over the Horn and climb the open face with a belay from above. The wind was blowing too hard, so I climbed the open face free on miniscule holds until reaching the fixed bolt at the top of the pitch. (Apparently this precedes the free cl... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the report, Tim. We used 3.5" wedge bolts on most of these routes so there should be a good bit of steel still in the hole but I'll take a look at it next time we're out there.

We got pretty aggro with the cleaning and spent a lot of time per route working stuff loose. I think the rock is just barely good enough for climbing so it'll keep on cleaning up. That said, if anyone wants to get after it with some more cleaning on any of these routes, have at it!

Comments: A belay bolt was added in September 2015 at the base of this route. Please use it to avoid swinging out over the eroding area between the switchback and tearing that area up even more. The lowered climber should take the trail/switchback to return to the base of the climb instead of going straight back to the belay and tearing up the eroding area. The logs and rocks are in that area for reason. Keep our crags tidy and sustainable, please don't create additional erosion.
