Comments: Don't know if you need to mantle on the crux. I think I found a way to balance fingers on the vertical edge above keeping body tension tight and the left leg flagged, standing up is not too hard, just be sure to remember where to stick that left foot once you're up as looking down afterward is not easy.

Comments: If it weren't for the opening and closing ledges, this would be pretty epic: the movement through the middle is a blast (though short-lived).

Comments: Cool route, more physical and not so technical. Also, tying knots in the end of the rope is a good habit to get into. Every time. Every route. If you're going to get injured, do it whilst climbing, not lowering.

Comments: This is a perfect place to take newbies. One recommendation; consider setting top rope anchors instead of leading this route (5.7+) until it has seen some more traffic. On Saturday, I almost took a lead fall about 5 feet from the anchors/10 feet from the last bolt after pulling off a rather large hand hold. Cool routes though! Thanks Mike, and it was nice to meet you on Sunday (I was the guy with the yellow hat that you were talking about the death blade with)..

Comments: Great warm up with beautiful exposure. Don't make the same mistake I did and only take 11 draws (I should really consider looking at the routes before I climb them).

Comments: I'm 5'8" and had to stretch pretty darn hard to reach the onsight (the key hold is an optical illusion in that it doesn't look like anything from below). After you gain the positive edge, it's just a high step and a hard pull to the easy stuff on the headwall above. This climb receives no fun points from me. Not worth doing IMO unless you are tall and trying to add an eleven to your tick list; it is an annoying 10+/11- move with ledge fall potential in the midst of a dull 5.7 face. ... more >>

Comments: Super classic! Solid 11 face, not for the faint of heart, fingers or toes. Micro-edge-fest! The business starts just after the fourth bolt and won't let up until just before the last. You are fore-warned.

Comments: At first I thought this was solid 11c, but the second time I climbed it I was able to work out a better sequence in the crux. If you implement good foot work and balance, it's more like 11a/b. Also, my buddy Landon TRed it and found a good mantle variation at the crux to gain the right foot stem. Not sure how hairy that move would be on lead though. After the tricky crux, the grade eases down to very fun 5.10 face climbing. All in all, it's a good climb.

Comments: If you manage to get past the bottom 3 clips with out getting flash pump...it's in the bag (the rest is like 9ish?). The top can be pretty loose and dirty up right so stand clear at the bottom like Mono said. Good views from the top.

Comments: I could've sworn it was 10+ before I checked the guidebook, but I guess it could be the infinite amount of ledges/rests between the business. Haha, what a clean line though. Seems like a great warm up for Ten Digit.

Comments: ticking is not to be tolerated on anything below 13. Especially on a route as chalked and juggy as this precious gem.

Comments: the pinch feature directly above my right knee is pivotal for balance as you smear your feet up and gain the jug system I'm holding in this pic

Comments: i'm 5'9 and found no issues with this route. there is definitely no need to dyno. I enjoyed the movement, especially the start. just smear right and use that pinch feature for balance as you reach up out of the dish to the start of the juggies.

Comments: i nearly onsighted this...got pumped going to the chains. but none-the-less, it would've been my hardest onsight by far. I'd agree with everyone and say it was more like a super sustained 11b with maybe one C move in there somewhere. But it's hard to tell with overhang like that.
