Comments: A single 70m easily works for the raps - on the third pitch you don't need to fight it, just rap (mostly) straight down and then walk the giant ledge over to the anchors.

Comments: I'm going to go out on a limb and call this the best route in the canyon.

Comments: Those vertical zebra stripes, just to the left of the climb, are a great way to confirm you're at the correct start.

Comments: There is a simple way to avoid the 5.9R face. From the same start of that pitch, (on the pedestal above the chimney system) step onto the face, traverse 20 ft. left to a crack system, then 30 ft. straight up to a belay. The crack is a little dirty but protects well and is in the 5.8-5.9 range. From this belay, down climb 10ft. to the right (now back on the standard route) and continue around the corner to the 5.10 exit pitches. The only drawback to this variation is the extra belay needed to avo... more >>

Comments: I am 95% sure a single 70m rope gets you down. We used it for the first two raps- the first reaches easily, the second with just a few feet to spare. The third also appeared it would barely make it according to the mark on my rope. From here (top of P2) one would continue straight down to an anchor on the overhung wall below. (This is NOT part of Warpaint and is not visible from above.) One more rap would reach the ground in the large cave.

Comments: Despite the new/old bolt issue, Bob's description is very good. Comments on pitches using Bob's numbering:
P2 to P3 - might want to belay this easy but loose traverse
P3 and P4 - easy to combine at about 220 ft. - dirty and booshey -
P6 - Last 20ft. of this pitch you are above a pillar. May be a bad place to fall.
P7 - These bolts, particularly the last/highest one, should be replaced. It will still be exciting with new bolts.
P8 - short pitch, only 50ft. or so depending on belays but tough to l... more >>

Comments: - A 70m does work for all raps. 4 back to the saddle, 5 back to the base if you did the first pitch.
- Don't skip the first pitch. It takes an extra 5 minutes to get to it and it's a good warm up pitch for the next couple.
- There IS an anchor on top of the pitch 4 chimneys. It is out left. I am guessing that people have missed it because there is more than one way to do pitch 4 (left chimney system or the right). If you were to climb the right one you would not go past this anchor naturally. T... more >>
