Location: CA : Sierra Eastside : Eastern Hills : Sagehen Summit Area : Granite Basin : ... : Clevenger Route (5.9)

Comments: Who knows what I did, except it was a fun finish. When I did Clevenger Route, I checked out the first half of the 2nd pitch of All Along the Watchtower and it looked stellar though a bit sketch!

Comments: Setting up a TR was super easy for us. 3 cordelettes and some biners and we had the power point over the edge, the rope ran freely, and the rope stayed out of the crack.

It's a fun little climb with good rock quality to start, then it slowly deteriorates the higher you climb. I second the gear selection: .75 to a #4 camalot. Bolt protects the exit moves.

Comments: Climbed this today and seems like the 3rd bolt has been replaced. Also, Stewart Green's guide calls this Ralph the Rat.

Comments: Yup, if this was on Wall Street it would have people on it all the time. Good climb to learn to trust your feet on.

Comments: I was here April 3rd and found route names and faux petroglyphs written in chalk all over The Punisher Boulder. Cleaned it up best I could with water. Please respect the rock.

Comments: Climb is a 2 move boulder problem only 8 feet high with a bad landing; we soloed it up and then back down. The highlight of this little adventure is checking out the cable car terminal and surrounding area up top. Maybe a good first tower for beginners.

Comments: A good hike to a nice summit in a very cool location. But, the climbing was meh. The highlight was beers on the summit!

Comments: There is a piece in suspect rock here and there, but overall it takes decent pro. I sewed this up (due to the sandy rock) and placed singles from .5 C4 to a #5 C4. There's even a spot you can place a #6 if you wanted to.

Also, if you fall you're in a tight chimney so odds are you're gonna fall/slide down the chimney than horizontally out, except the squeeze at the top. In a fall you probably won't put too much force on the pro.

Comments: I placed 10 pieces of pro on this climb- all new style BD C4's. I used 2 #1's, 2 #2's, 2 #3's, yep, you guessed it 2 #4's, 1 #5 (though I would've placed a second one if I had it) and 1 #6. You could get by without the #6, but since I almost never get to use mine I took advantage of the climb to bring it outside. The moves were just insecure enough to make me think, but it's the 140' length of offwidth and wide hand moves that make me give it the + ratin... more >>

Comments: After Flakes of Wrath my next favorite route at Wall Street; a unique climb with fun moves. I feel the bottom half is technically easy (yup, think foot bridging) but rather physical. The upper half is much less physical but seems to become more tenuous the higher you climb.

Comments: Fun route and a good lieback. Takes good gear the whole way. However, I disagree that this is one of the better routes at Wall Street. It's good but not thaaat good.

Comments: Damn. Glad I'm not doing stand-up comedy in front of this crowd :) I think Sand Felipe is an outstanding climb. In other climbing areas this would one of the best, if not the best, climbs at the crag. Whereas, here it is maybe middle of the pack.

And for the bolting: I don't mind the closely spaced bolts so much but if the reasoning is to make a super safe climb then why did whoever retrobolt not put in another bolt to protect the moves getting to the bolt ladder? Like other people here said, ... more >>

Comments: Climbed this route today and found the initial start and the offwidth sandy and the holds crumbly. However, the main corner system seemed solid to me. But as Todd says, don't take this climb for granite! :D

For what it's worth, I sewed this climb up and I don't have a desert rack. In C4's I used a .4, .5, an overcammed .75, 1, 2, and a tricky to place #3 right before the offwidth. Also, in Metolius Power Cams I used a 7, and an overcammed 8.

A beautiful route, in a beautiful area, with a... more >>

Comments: For mere mortals like myself, if you climb through the first five bolts and stop at the midway anchor to Wild Will's Arete the route goes at 10a and seemed 2 1/2 to 3 stars to me.

Comments: Sweet quality rock! I felt clipping the 2nd bolt was more heads up than the 3rd but they're probably both heads up. Haha!

I climbed this a couple years ago with a skier from South Lake. He pulled straight out on that poor flake until my wife and myself started yelling at him "Pull straight down! Not out!" He just looked at us, smiled, and asked "You got me?"

Comments: Hey DJ, did you use the arĂȘte for the upper face? I'd say if not it's definitely 10d, but if you climb with your left hand on the arĂȘte it brings the grade down to 10c. See ya out there!

Comments: Falcon guide calls this route Light Headed. The North Tahoe Guidebook has several errors in it. Though the Falcon guide also has several errors, as well. Oh my, what route is this? Why can't they just make a god damn fvcking guidebook of Donner Summit without any errors ;)
