Comments: brent good to know. Thanks for the beta. I had no idea that there were bolts at one point on the climb. Anyway your right. I may be the first to do it with out bolts but still no FFA. Thats fine with me.

Comments: I have done this route many times, its so good. The last pitch as stellar as the moonlight rib! This is a perfect example of utilizing the full potential Black Hills Climbing can offer.

Comments: I finally did this climb after 8 years of contemplating. When I was 13 I read a article about it (Before I was even a climber!). I watched two friends climb it but never top roped it then yesterday grabbed my best buddy Tim and we climbed it together. It was so great.

I will stick my Curtís beta for this. Keep in mind though that Curt and others who would call this pg13 are solid 5.12 climbers. What is pg13 for them may feel like R for you. I felt vary safe for the 2nd crux but I did feel... more >>

Comments: Good route. I went right on accident instead of strait up and left at the end. Try it sometime the traverse is hard then you will get to the end of it and wish there was some gear.

Comments: I had some good flight lessons on this one. Came back to send this thing after a couple attempts and a good size winger right before crux was over. Bomber gear right before the crux, place it then run it to the good holds just go for it. Its tottally worth it.

Comments: This is the best single pitch climb I did when I was in Eldo. The face climbing is so fricking amazing. Getting the first bolt had me going, but the real mental crux for me was at the very end 10 or 15 ft before the anchor. Maybe it's not so scary there, but something had me going.

Super fun do it if you are solid on the grade.

Comments: This is a cool route if you are thinking about doing it go for it, just make sure you have your head that day. I would call it 5.10 pg-13/R then 5.8 x after the crux.
