Comments: On 5/2/16 that hanger was replaced. The stud is in excellent condition. I have no idea why the hanger went missing.

Comments: The 3rd hanger is missing on this route. If you replace it, leave a comment here. You will need a hanger and a 3/8 inch nut and washer. The 3/8 inch stud is in good condition. You can easily get to this bolt by climbing "Shadows on the Earth" (the climb just right) and, just before doing the roof, traverse left.

Comments: Maybe the second bolt needs to be moved 12" left? Maybe a bolt needs to be added between the 2nd and 3rd bolt? What are your thoughts? I see the route doesn't get done much. Maybe that's why?

Comments: Mike Davis said: "Went back on 4-27 and tightened the the bolt." Thanks Mike (Hope you put the hanger on before you tightened the bolt - just kidding

Comments: Kelly Gilleran said "To me the whole route felt great until the end where it kinda blanked out and got dirty. I was trying some desperate moves with a toe hook on the arete". Kelly, I think you were going too far to the Right at the top. Don't go over to the Arete. It's kinda a hard right foot smear but can be done and staying right on the bolt line. (Heck, I did the move so you can surely do the move)

Comments: I am still not sure where Matthes Crest Traverse ends. After I went up the north peak and across the "wave" there is what I think is considered the "mandatory 5.8 downclimb" I ended the traverse of Matthes Crest there but there is, what looks to me like, more climbing continuing. I tried to solo this portion but couldn't find a way that I was comfortable soloing so I found a ramp and exited. Can others give me information?

Comments: Kelly: Your in good company. Alex Honnold thought the moves to the anchor were 12a and had to think about it a bit. (for less than a second however)

Comments: Chris: Good that you put up this route. I like the name. When you spend the money and effort to put up a new route, you get to name it, even if you want to name it with your social security number. There has been no claim of an ascent herein or elsewhere so I say the route is fair game and an asset for the area. Just remember, much of the time when we put a new route up, there will usually be others on the sidelines that will complain.

Comments: Bill: I have no idea what you mean by "On the far side". You need a better description for how to get there. If you send me a topo of the area, I will add it to the guide sheets.

Comments: More info after climbing this again on 7/25/15. At the very end of the ridge just before the last tower, you can easily walk off the crest and head back home. I did this the first time I climbed the crest but felt like I was cheating. This time I tried to climb the last tower but couldn't find a way to do it without a rope so I backtracked and went down before this last tower. If you have a rope I would think you would want to climb this last tower so you could claim the entire traverse. (Any su... more >>

Comments: More info after climbing this again on 7/25/15. People keep saying there is mandatory 5.8 or so down climbing after the North summit. I saw this "mandatory" down climbing but, because I am a gumby, I won't do it. If you are a little creative you can easily find ways around these down climbs by backtracking and traversing either left or right down from the ridge. In one case I go straight down left from the ridge about 50' and drop into a gully and go back up about 20' then find a ramp that I use... more >>

Comments: More info after Climbing this again on 7/25/15. Once you get to the notch between the South and North summits you will find a ramp. If you go to the end of the ramp you will find a corner, if you are soloing, and you are gumby like me, I wouldn't climb this corner. Go back on the ramp a ways and you can easily pull up onto another ramp about 10' above the first ramp. Again I wouldn't climb the corner at the end of the ramp but go back a ways and find a flake that goes up and left. This looks to ... more >>

Comments: Climbed this again on 7/25/15. The first time I climbed it I went all the way to the top of the South summit and did some kind of sketchy down climbing to the notch between the South and North summit. This time I didn't go all the way up to the top of the South summit but (just before starting up to the summit) I went right on a ramp toward a tree and continued on this ramp to the notch between the North and South summit. This may be considered cheating but I felt a lot less sketched out doing i... more >>

Comments: I led this climb yesterday and put a note in my guide book to never lead it again. There is potential to get hurt badly. All of the above statements (by others) are true. This could be a 2 or 3 star route if it were cleaned up and a couple of bolts added. In some cases you are making difficult moves way above your last bolt and you are standing on a moss covered sloper. If you want a good adventure this will be fun, just keep it together.
