Comments: There are plenty of trad lines here. Unfortunately, the dolomite is generally very sharp and unpleasant to jam in this area. The protection is also tricky, with a lot of constrictions and "weak" placements. Passive pro is usually better. The face climbing however is great.

Comments: Also, the anchors are vertically staggered and not equalized on both pitches, not sure if additional hardware was intended to be added or what...

I haven't seen this specific anchor, but given that Sam put it up, I'd guess it is a "French Style" anchor. A pretty trick (and safe) system that is fighting an uphill battle for acceptance in the US. There is no equalization in a French Style anchor, but then again there is only the illusion of actual equalization in most anchors with rigid... more >>

Comments: Fun route, in a Type 2 sort of way!
Looks totally cruizer from the base, but turned into a swell blue collar grovel.

Comments: To my count, 50% of the well known free solo climbers as of three years ago are now dead from free solo accidents sustained in climbs well below their technical skill levels.

According to Todd Snider:
"64 percent of all the world's statistics are made up right there on the spot
82.4 percent of people believe 'em whether they're accurate statistics or not"

Your count is unsubstantiated.

I am not a climber except for top roping but I am an orthopedic surgeon.

I'm not a doctor... more >>

Comments: Take a #5 or two for the crux wide at the top of P1, forget about face climbing trickery to the left to avoid the wide. Embrace it!
The belay sucks, but all things worthwhile require a bit of suffering. The reward comes on P2 with straight in perfect hands for 100'+.

Comments: Madison FM?
Chances are pretty slim for us lightweights to show up here. Looking forward however to clipping your bolts at 4 Storys and Reece.

Comments: A message to whomever is doing the new routing up here:

1) Cool, we're all stoked to have new lines opened up. Thanks.
2) Please camouflage your hangers. Previous and current developers in the area have been very diligent in painting hardware to blend in. Catching glimmers off the raw hangers from the highway isn't cool.

Comments: From the upper anchors, a single 60M rope will just make it to the base of the climb.

Comments: A fantastic line equaled only by the Southwest Face route. We took doubles to 3, plus a 4 and 5. Plenty of gear for the OW on P3. I ran P3 above the chockstone (that thing is cool!) about 20' to a nice ledge, then ran P4 and P5 together with minimal drag. Grade IV? Not really, just 4 great pitches of quality batholith.

Comments: Great shot!

This has been on my to-do list for 20 years. A formidable wall.
