On P7, what is "the baby head"?

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.

Comments: One improvement though would be to have you in the pic. No way I'd had made it up there on my own.

Comments: Just having fun. I appreciate the complete description to the photo. More photo contributors should do the same.

Is it legit to climb on this thing?

Please post if you have them.

Comments: Thanks Derek.

How hard are P4 (traverse) and P5?

Also, about the pro, roughly, what is the max size in inches of the 3 and 4 BD, and the min size of the 0.75?

Comments: This must be the pitch after the long corner, the one that traverses over to the dike?

Comments: Nice Derek, thanks.

I wonder if anyone has repeated HITAGA? Great pitch. I suppose it needs an easier access pitch though, as TIINLA and Bobcat Cringe are a bit tough.

Comments: Is there a plan to have an access pitch from the bottom?

Also, is the first pitch of HB for Glory completely free? (i.e., up to the amazing, long crack pitch.)

Comments: Looks great, Derek.

About the # of bolts, the edited Clint topo that you posted here says "14? bolts".

How close is this route's anchor to the Hell Bent anchor?

Comments: Do you mean "bulge"?

Although 'getting through the budge' sounds like it could be a new phrase. I am just totally out of it...

Comments: Well, even 100-200 is plenty.

Are there more boulders like "The Pebble' in the vicinity?

That boulder looks really fun. You've shown some other areas with great-looking boulders, but I quickly forget where they are. Perhaps it would be nice to have an "Area" listing for just the boulders of the Okanogan.

Comments: So, Derek, that would be early spring 2017 (or winter 2016-2017)?

I'm keen on it. Hopefully, my knee will be up for the moves.
