Sorry Cris! Should have just commented on the odd angle of the lakes.

Comments: Great finish on this one! Continuous in the middle. Loses a star for the easy section below the crux.

Comments: Great rock quality, some of the best in the Gorge. Also great climbing. Was loving it until the last bolt. Then hating it for a while till I figured out how to do it. Almost blew the onsight in a couple of spots, this route keeps coming at you. 3.5 stars.

Comments: Wow the comments on this route make for a great read. Hard not hard(5.8-5.11), you can do it in tennies. First pitch is harder, no second pitch is harder, no first pitch. Covered in poop, no poop, poop(well at least this one makes sense). Holds have broken no holds have broken, only broken on second pitch. And the best is, it's runout no it's a sport climb, no it's runout.

From Randy

"And as for being run out, get a life! The first pitch is practically a sport route."

Then 2 years later

Comments: 10a in Vogel Classic. In the purple guide 5.9 and noted as being over bolted and aid was probably used, funny. Wings of Steel.

Comments: I did this route a few times. I remember a fixed bong at the start of the wide. I also did a cool variation to the first pitch that had a nice surprise.

Comments: I remember this as one of the best pitches on Little Baldy. I also remember bad bolts, one being bent. I used my cleaning tool to bend it back just enough to get a thin helium binner on it. I also remember a shitty anchor. I last climbed this route in 98 so unless these bolts have been replaced I would consider it dangerous, especially the anchor. This climb is VERY WORTHY of bolt replacement.

As far as the climbing I remember the crux being two mantels in a row on 1" edges.

Comments: My notes show 2 of 5 stars. I also wrote stoppers, tricams, tcus, small friends

Bit by Bit links with this route as Tapestry was done first. Also climbing this route year round would not be typical. I lived in Lodgepole for 5 winters and never climbed on Little Baldy in the winter and never saw or heard of anyone doing this. I am not saying It wasn't just saying it isn't typical.

Comments: I wrote 2 of 5 stars in my notes. Also wrote "first pitch is ugly and dirty with many loose blocks. After stepping on a stack of blocks they started to slide but was able to push them off. Now the pitch is harder." That was a long time ago and I vaguely remember this.

Comments: This route is named because of me! My first handrilling experience. I drilled the 2nd bolt on this route and as you can guess I broke a bit. It's been so long I can't remember the details. I think I finished the hole and placed the bolt. Don't remember if it was 1/4" or 3/8". We started this route after work and didn't get to far. I think Tim and Dale finished it on a day I had to work. Tim and Dale were both great guys and climbing partners. I have great memories, although foggy, climbing with ... more >>

Comments: I was pleasantly surprised with the 2nd pitch, enjoyed it very much. But I disagree... ok, good, great and classic should mean the same anywhere you go. I keep seeing all these routes on this site that are being posted as classic, more than half the time they are some 30' choss pile that probably should not have been bolted. As far as Same as it Never was, I tried to onsight it last year and couldn't do it. I can't rate something I haven't done but my impression was it is harder than 11c. I did ... more >>

Comments: Not third class. I'm sure the gal that fell in that section due to a hold breaking is very glad she had a rope.
