Comments: Very nice route! Crux is definitely P4. Manageable temps if you climb first thing in the morning.

Comments: Got on this today. Much better new start to the route!

Comments: I would definitely suggest the Olive Oil approach. While steep, it is much shorter and more straightforward than coming up by Challenger. Additionally, the routes on the Jet Stream Wall only require a light rack and this the gully is really not that bad.

Comments: Luke: Needs equal length chains, but the bolts are ~18" apart so 5 links may be a little bit short. Definitely get up there!

Comments: Don't get sandbagged, this is the real deal! Best crack in Idyllwild!

If confident at the grade, all you need is doubles from .5-2 BD with maybe a couple of extra pieces in the 1-2" range, and maybe 8 runners. As of today, two fixed pieces at the crux.

Comments: Great pitch, too bad the crux is so short! Chuck's OS rack was spot on, well protected the whole way, might bring one extra 0.3BD. Definitely easier (for me) than Mutiny, no question there (1 move crux vs. ~15ft on Mutiny), but both are four star routes for sure!

Comments: Agree with everyone, definitely not R rated. Good climbing and great rock, I just wish that the crux was more than one move!

Comments: Best route on the wall IMO if you climb the grade. Go for the onsight, it's strenuous and pretty wild, but the gear is great.

Comments: Absolutely stellar pitch! Can easily lower back to the ledge with a 60m rope, or to the ground with a 70m.

For the rack, I would recommend small to medium nuts, a few micro-cams to purple Metolius, triples of fingers, four .5s, and a few .75-1s.

Comments: Should be rated PG13, not R. On the third pitch, you can sling plates every 20ft after the bolt until you move back into the corner. All the climbing is secure and the patina is simply amazing!

Comments: Agree with the above comment. Good climb on clean rock. Make sure to bring a BD #4 and #5 if you don't want to run it out.

Comments: Literally the best finger crack I've ever done! Awesome.

As of Sept. 2010, the anchors are shiny and brand new. Thanks to whatever good soul replaced those.
