Comments: No anchor on the tree as of Memorial Day 2016.

There is better gear than you might see from the ground, in the horizontals.

Comments: Pro is good but not great; can be tricky to get in the higher traverse. Watch out for loose stuff.

Comments: Routes are all pretty close to full 30m here -- you may want to carry extras in the finger/hand cam sizes.

Comments: Eyesore is in the list of routes to the left on this page -- its entry is here. If you mean 'why isn't it listed as a 'classic climbing' route?', the answer is that the 'classic climbing' list is chosen not by humans but by an algorithm of MP software, according to stars and number of ratings. Go add a star, if you adore it!

Comments: I remember some seriously loose rock on this -- would not put an inexperienced party on it.

Comments: Jackie is actually substantially further left than what's drawn here, until the first rooflet.

Comments: Classic is almost right here. Neither this pic nor the other topo-drawn pic for Jackie (on its page) is correct!

Comments: Mike, feel free to provide a better description for P1 than what's here, if you feel it's worthwhile!

Comments: Hi Nick, nice to see you here. Those routes are not listed here simply because no one has added entries for them yet. When someone does create entries for them (hint!, hint!), they'll be voted on by others, and automatically added to the favorites and classics lists. Thanks for the photos you added today!

Comments: If the intermediate anchor were better, I'd list the route as 5.6 and just describe the first pitch -- it deserves it. The second pitch, not so much.

Comments: This route horrified my husband, who was onsighting 5.10 at the time. I was also horrified on TR. Not worth it, at all.

Comments: This trail exists, but it's better to take either the V-3 trail just a few feet right, or the Mme G's trail that is being stoned-up now (summer 2015).

Comments: Hm. Years, likely 5 of them. We started as for Andrew, on top of the scrambling ledge. I remember an interesting move or two up a R-facing corner (and something about bees), moving up it and then left to get out onto the Silhouette face. Nice climbing up that face, some genuine crack motion, steeper than you'd expect. A bit dirty then, but not terrible. Give it a whirl!

Comments: This photo really captures the steepness well. Most photos from the base make it look much slabbier than it really is.

Like Seth, I don't use that face hold for hands. But my "thank GOD!" pocket is nicely visible here.

Comments: I think that might be right, Ken, Scott (monk) has just a little more reach than I do and I remember being just unable to reach the holds he did.
