Comments: Jeff Hebert's description from a second posting of this route:

A few bigger moves on large holds at the bottom gain a bulge before the character changes to more technical stemming and then slab at the very top.

Comments: Jeff Hebert's description and info from another posting of this route:

An intriguing, overhanging arete and dihedral combination, this climb starts up an easy fin ramp and then quickly enters some steep dihedral moves with smearing feet and laybacks which eventually bring you up and onto the final face.

Comments: Brown pee?

Water running down dirty ropes will do that. Oh well, if one is interested in fashion, I guess they should wear brown pants for route cleaning.

Comments: Other than the route and pics, I like the added history. I just shifted it to a new heading.

Comments: Looks wild. Fantastic job-

Pitch 5, I suppose you mean "flare layback", but I do like the sound of a layback with flair....rather makes me want to go out and do a stylish layback.

Despite that, I think the topo is also very well designed. Thanks for taking the time to make it.

Comments: You can get very good rests after the first and second set of anchors on Serendipity, which covers the hardest moves. So I think the rating of Hull Yeah should be the same as that of Serendipity. Seems more like 11b/c.

Comments: Nice to see someone having fun in the Index rain. Where is this?

Is it water coming out of a hole in the rock?

Comments: Ah, Escargot. It wouldn't surprise me if Nicola accidently did a 5.13.

BTW Sol, Nicola and I recently met your Uncle Doug at the Lone Pine Campground. He liked talking of your climbing exploits.
