Comments: Replaced the hanger on the second bolt. We changed the locations of the top anchors and added a bolt so now the climb is a little longer.

Comments: I have free soloed this route a couple of times alone. I will give you a little beta that I wish I'd had. At the start, between the 1st and 2nd tower go up the first ramp from left to right. The fresh air traverse (FAT) can be a little tricky to find. When I last did it a couple of weeks ago, you could see webbing that someone had placed on three pitons on the FAT and you can see them before starting up to get on the FAT. (before going up to the FAT you will have come down to... more >>

Comments: Dennis: Good Job. It looks like there is a discrepancy on where Fast Food Wall is located. Maybe my coordinates weren't correct?

Comments: I made changes to the topo which is in the Photo's section on the Emeralds main page which will provide better information on "Solar Wind" and "Sun Burn"

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: 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 a little ways beyond 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 ... more >>

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: More info after climbing this again on 7/25/15. At the very end of the ridge just before the last tower, (this is after the North peak and after the "wave") 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... more >>

Comments: More info after climbing this again on 7/25/15. In areas along the ridge, if the climbing looks too difficult you can be a little creative and easily find ways around these down climbs by backtracking and traversing either left or right down from the ridge. People keep saying there is mandatory 5.8 or so down climbing after the North summit and after the wave. I think I saw this "mandatory" down climbing but, because I am a gumby, I won't do it. ... more >>
