Comments: Nice bolted chains at S side of top. Min 60m rope to get down over crux & slab, then easy Class 4 downclimb holding onto ridge edge.

Great views from top - very worthy summit.

I found the leaning crack awkward and could not reach/obtain the jug hold. Even then with a swinging heel hook and strenuous reach to obtain balance, that is no way a 5.7 move. Seen same requirement on 5.11 routes. Maybe missed some key foot placement? Anyways, found the pin ring to be convenient to aid my way up. Just n... more >>

Comments: Tough to find start. P1-3 : 45,35,35m. Climbed with packs made roof crux toughest spot. Great views. Good variety with slab, crack, chimney, & roof. Good to have hexes.

Comments: Rope-soloed first three 60m pitches to the gully. Pro available but after long runouts. Free-soloed remainder of route up gully, trees, jump, and summits. The Jump was a bit much given carrying gear, pack, & rope. The Trees of Love (refer to another pic) was the toughest move of the route, and the last 20 ft. up the crack corner/dihedral were harder than the avg rating. Lots of rock to grab!

Comments: Kevin's beta on approach was key - follow the stream left around blk, vs. don't try to go rt up & over base of Satan's Slab. Here's how to have a 12hr roped climbing adventure : 7:45a start from NCAR, 9:15a rdy to climb P1, finish 5 1/2 pitches to base of final summit blk by 2:30p, 2 short P7-8 up to summit via who knows what route high on east face, not much room or pro on summit by 4:10p, downclimb P9 protected and traverse east & north, then short P10 over to rappel tree by 4:53p. Rapped 30' ... more >>

Comments: We did 8 pitches (4 full-length 60m, and 4 short) including belay to rap tree. Nice climbing for most of the route, with some easy 3-4 class mixed in. Our line definitely included several 5.4 moves. This route felt more difficult than Breezy (5.5) or 5th Flatiron East Face, N. side route 5.4. Last pitch up the face on rt side had long runout.
