Comments: You can either do a second pitch or just do one long pitch and get to a second pair of anchors high in the crack system. A good crack on some good rock makes a nice long pitch!

Comments: This is a great route that is on a good chunk of rock. The two pitches offer very different and unique climbing. In hindsight, the 1st pitch belay should have been moved slightly out of the way. Regardless, it is a great route put up with a great friend!

Comments: Great addition to the crag! Fun Moves and good protection. I used a few larger sizes of C3s and a small nut at the crux.

Comments: I just got back from Chiang Mai, and before spending a week here was at the Railey and Tonsai Beach. Though Tonsai and other beach crags have the wonderful addition of their location coupled with good climbing, I found that the crowds and over all attitude of climbers there to majorly detract from the climbing. Chiang Mai is the opposite of this. What it lacks in beaches it gains with good people and a fun location. I found the Heart wall to be my favorite and spent two days there doing the majo... more >>

Comments: This is a classic! I would say it is in the top 10 for The Monument for sure. I found climbing the corner high and past the ledge you grab to place gear made the move to the bolt less heady. Have a blue Metolius for after the bolt! Worth the short hike over there! After you clip the chains, flick the rope out of the crack.

Comments: Great rock and amazing sequences that slap you around. The slightly overhanging rock was a great find by the Piz. He knew what it was since the first time he laid eyes on it. Climbing the Pleasure Pillar was the reconnaissance mission.

Comments: This route has tons of good movement over generally good rock. With a few more ascents, the small flakes that are here and there will come off and it will be in great shape!

Comments: Thanks for the info. It is always great to hear about the origins of a lot of these unknown routes. Any chance I could get your name to credit you for the FA? Thanks!

Comments: The climb got a bolt update (thanks to ASCA) and a new summit register as of 10/15/2011. Raps should go: two rope rap to the anchor on the ledge at the top of pitch 3. One rope rap to anchors for pitch two. Two rope rap (or 70m rope) to the ground.

Comments: The exposure is wonderful, and the moves are awesome on some good steep rock. Doing the Pleasure Pillar to access the climb is the way to go. Sets you up at the luxury belay ledge.

Comments: Hey Jack, As it happens, I am friends with Pike, and I remember him telling me to go get on it and that it was not that bad. I saw a Glimmer in his eye and knew better. I still want it though!

Comments: Yes, it is on the caprock. It is still removed a ways from the edge because of the in cut below. They are double ring rap hangers. The 30 meters of old line that was wrapped around the pins and the large block that the pins are in has been removed as well.

Comments: The rap station at the top has been updated and replaced. Courtesy of the ASCA. A tip: when you rappel try to pass the knot passed the edge at first chance you can unweighted the rope. Otherwise it can be a brutal pull.

The original summit register is still there, and someone has kindly put a new notepad, pencils, and ziplock bags. Thanks!

Comments: It is hard to discern where this actually is. As has been pointed out by many, bolting is strictly prohibited unless for the repair/ safety of an existing route. I remember there being a short sport climb in the granite of Gold Star Canyon that has been there a while. I hope that this was put up before '92.

Comments: I would say that after my first comment, I have come to agree and understand the replacement done by Rob and Jason. It was a needed thing. As far as sustainability and longevity in the fishers I think that putting solid bolts is quite appropriate and thank you for taking the time. I am sorry for any comments that detracted from the send. I am in favor of these free climbing efforts and believe they are truly sustainable especially when compared to the gear lists of Jeremy's that include 20-30 p... more >>

Comments: As the internet, and therefore Mountain Project, is not static or fixed, I am not rewriting anything. I am very aware of the fact that all of these routes have been done and re-done again. My intentions are not to claim any of these route as mine, or to rewrite history as you say. As names and FA parties become available, I will change and update the routes. I do not agree that it is disrespectful. I simply give it a name to differentiate between climbs as having 20-30 "unknowns" would be confu... more >>
