Comments: The bolt is in on the spicy 9th pitch. Step across and make a clip. Have fun!

Comments: Just a really good climb. Technical face climbing as opposed to some of the more slug fest Black routes out there. Bolts are placed extremely well. Seems like the guys who put this one up did their homework and it shows. Highly recommended.

Comments: This one is worthy. Definitely a Black Classic. In the last two weeks, I've climbed Atlantis and Crystalvision and thought this route was by far the most strenuous and physically demanding of the three. I got stuck in the 9X chimney, too much crap on my harness and worked like a dog to get through it. Thought the 10+ pitch above that was spicy but fun, and I found the bombay chimney to be pretty hard. Ran out of long draws on that one and got rope dragged for the last steep bit.

Comments: Ok, here goes. I finally made it back to the Crystal Vision yesterday. It's been 12 years since we put it up. The crux "spicy" pitch was my friend Paul Emrick's lead, as was the crystal slab, and I must say that we discussed a bolt on the spicy pitch many times (personally I think he did a great job on the slab as it's a super fun pitch that's well-protected). I placed the bolt on the 5.8 slab 2nd pitch after having led it a couple of times w/out and decided it would just be a better climb ... more >>

Comments: Never climbed in the area. Wondering if anyone can recommend some crags and camping. I will be with my kids, 5&8 yrs. burgeoning climbers who really like a short approach! Single pitch would be best. Any advice?
Cheers

Comments: Did JHaskell's variation to the 5.9 face traverse pitch yesterday. Definitely less sketchy, but certainly takes longer. Traverse left until you see a corner and head up. The pitch is actually pretty fun, hands in a corner. Top out the pedestal and then downclimb about 30 ft (not 10) down and right to a pedestal and slip around the corner. This part is kind of a pain in the ass and eats time. However if you've got it and aren't psyched on the original 5.9 option, check it out.
