Comments: Long time user of MP, and rarely post. But I have to say, "Descriptions" are becoming more of an opinion section, rather then straight facts on a climb.

Comments: Great route, don't agree with "R" rating. Yes, I TRed first, as recommended by Muff. The climb protects easily. I got two bomber pieces in the "R" section and another 7 pieces of bomber gear in the crack portion. Safe great climb.

Comments: Your right John, there is a lot of potential, but with bad bolts and bad rock by the end you are pissed off rather then having fun.

Comments: Options for an anchor are limited. Head all the way to the top to get two/three finger or smaller pieces.

Comments: A route named Run From Your Wife (10c) to the left of Runaway is not included in this list. Good route, one bolt leading to a crack to a second bolt, I think, needs more traffic. Worth doing if you are climbing that dome.

Comments: There seems to a new bolt protecting the mantle, making it a three bolt route.

Comments: Surprisingly great routes on this little face. Pitfall (11c) always makes me think and Cockpit (9+) is a great warm up. I belayed Too Strong on Pitfall before the bolts where replaced, scary. Thanks to whoever replaced the bolts.

I am curious, what's the deal with the recent installation of the two bolt anchor and glaringly loud chains on a sub-face to climbers right (Hurricane)? The crack that leads to these bolts is less then 25 feet and doesn't seem very note worthy for the visually lo... more >>

Comments: The flake is definitely hanging by a hair. I would have pulled it today if my rope was not in the line of fire. I think reaching past the flake might make the route a hair hard, 11b.
