Comments: September seems to be the month to do this route. After a late night in Vegas, we arrived at the parking lot to see two other cars. One seemed to be a bunch of mountain bikers and the other was likely a party on this route. They were two pitches up and well ahead of us such that we did not catch up. The weather was perfect and we weren't in the sun at all. This was a great route in comfortable conditions! The walkoff adds to the ease and enjoyment of this route. Be sure that if you get a ... more >>

Comments: It is indeed a shame that a leader in the climbing community chooses to throw drivel at a person who bolted a route that had seen little to no action in 25 years. I'd love to work this route, but it sounds like the bolts will go soon. I'm glad overall that Byrne is working with Chris to see that his input is now respected in regards to what is done with the route. He has shown class while other idiots have not.

Comments: This is a highly underrated climb and needs to get some more traffic on it! Make the venture up and out of the usual Avalon crowds to find this hidden gem. The 1st pitch is probably far easier than 10c, but perhaps the necessity to avoid wet moss and vegetation along with a slightly awkward but very cool, airy traverse makes it a 10. Awesomely fun, and well done finding this line to the original bolters!

Comments: Thinking about it more, however, perhaps instead of the average another statistic like the mode should be used. In this case, the most popular grade would be 5.11a, and thus please you.

Comments: To respond to your long ago posted question about how the consensus is calculated....

Just as an experiment, I gave the letter grades a number such that 11a = 11, 11b = 11.25, 11c = 11.50, 11d = 11.75 and so forth. With the gradings you gave above, if you add up all of those (the 5.10 grade gets a 10.5 and the 11b/c gets a 11.375) then the average comes out to just over 10.9, which to me, equates a 5.10d. Although no one is putting their grade at 5.10d specifically, the average with the low 5... more >>

Comments: Definitely one of the best 10s in the canyon. Awesome climbing and a nice extension. I found myself smiling every time I put a hand somewhere on the rock where I thought a hold would be, it was there pleasantly. Getting to the first bolt can be one crux depending on how you do it, and the second is the roof. Once that's done, it drops down to very pleasant 5.8 climbing. Do it!

Comments: I'd agree with those posting about loose stuff, mainly large and some small flakes. Because of the comments, I was doing the hollow punch test, and there was a lot that didn't sound good at all. Unfortunately, this really takes a lot away from an otherwise fun warm-up route. I am sure that in the next few years if not sooner, this route will change drastically due to large blocks and flakes coming off. Be aware of what you are pulling and stepping on while on this route!

Comments: Rarely am I one to comment on the way a climb was bolted due to the sheer effort put in. Here though, I don't understand this route and the bolting at all. It's definitely contrived if you follow the bolt line and stay off the things to the right. To me though, it's so close to the easier things on the right that you might as well have bolted that area instead. When I was climbing this today, I wanted to go left, but there was so little there and no chalk whatsoever I felt off route. I just... more >>

Comments: Good beta shot- this is definitely what worked for me, and the previous commenter was spot on for what I was trying beforehand. The high step to the rail with the left foot is a much harder move.

Comments: Yeah, when I climbed it today, I was confused about the sequence above the roof. Having climbed it before, I remembered a nice hold to get your feet over to the right and eventually up. Without the hold, it's definitely harder- perhaps 10a.

Comments: Perhaps it's because I am only getting into trad, but this definitely felt 5.10 to me. With comparing the other routes in the area, especially Tower of Power, there were two moves on this (the lieback and pulling right with a high foot above the anchor) that felt easily as hard if not harder than any move on Tower of Power. Fun climb and agree that this could have been protected with a little runout and skipping all of the bolts. I certainly appreciate those anchors though!

Comments: Not being a trad climber, I appreciate the bolting on such a great route. However, I will be a trad climber at some point and will pass the bolts as was done on the photos attached to this climb.

Comments: This is a highly underrated route. I'm glad we hopped on it even though it hasn't gotten much praise. It's got some great juggy boulder-moves at the bottom and a tricky finish. Will come back and rock this thing next time. Awesome stuff.

Comments: I don't really know why this has gotten praise, but for our first climb in CCC, we hit Herbal Essence. After coming down, both of us were annoyed. Perhaps we didn't get it, and didn't understand the sequencing, but we both thought this route sucked.

We have the old handwritten guidebook and it said this was a 9- and I'd agree.
