Comments: Climbed this rig on 5/30/15 and the first 12- pitch, the pin 10' above the belay fell out and needs to be replaced, a LA, otherwise it's 20' to first piece and you'd hammer the belay if you fell. The nut is back in on the first 5.11 roof.

Hardest, sustained, and headiest 12 I've tried in the canyon compared to Lost Cities, Hotlanta , Tague Your Time, Cheap Hooker, Twisted, Eighth Voyage of Sinbad, Air Voyage, The Diagonal, but maybe I was just out of shape for wall climbing antics, I'll know n... more >>

Comments: In case you didn't know, when a climb has a "R" in the grade. It doesn't mean that it is in that hardest graded pitch, but sometimes it is!

Comments: I saw chalk on it in 01' and also thought it would obviously go as a 13 line. Can't wait to try it!

Comments: There's no need to "run it out", just place gear as needed. The dihedral is more flaky peg just like "The Engagement".

Comments: This route is kinda hard (or I was too tired after Cheap Hooker?). Triples is correct as the cruxes are small spots within the hand cracks. The last pitch is down right scary, because the rock is super sketch!!! Really easy and quick decent into this area. Thanks, Vic!

Comments: Ya, I thought you need gear for the dihedral, no? This wall is prime for link-ups!

Comments: Sick hard route. Swing leftward on last rap w a 70m and down walk/climb the "coffee" trough to the ground. Not sketch. I also thought the 2 cruxes were "full on" hard....and 5.12 even if they were lower altitude.

Comments: Has anyone gone the .11 way past the bolts??? I did and ended up bailing to the other traverse. It seemed to go to a hard, 20', vertical, stem corner (12?) or a handholdless traverse right to a corner that if you fell you would swing huge! Bueller?
