Comments: There are two bolts on top, both star drives, one with a modern Metolius hanger and the other with a homemade angle iron hanger. Neither is particularly good.

Comments: The directions to The Chamber are perfectly adequate. There aren't that many little caves in the canyon wall 200 feet east of the Cheese Wedge. And there are always GPS coords if you really need help.

Comments: Mike, here's Dean's video: facebook.com/deanlords/videos/...

And his route description from the draft guide:
"Start underneath on the far right side. Pull onto the lip and traverse left to the very apex of the boulder, then mantle out. The big flat top boulder underneath is off."

So "sit start" wasn't accurate on my part, but he definitely uses the right pillar to get established.

Comments: I heard someone added TR bolts? Pretty lame. If you're scared of the landing, go do Heebie Jeebies instead; it's a better route anyways.

Comments: I never came back to finish this. As I didn't do the topout, V4 is just a guess. Let me know.

Comments: Jacob- It does indeed go on gear--as long as you don't fall. The flake is too brittle to trust. The bolts should stay.

Comments: Tony, I wouldn't suggest such sacrilege [especially in a town that owns so many pitchforks], but my book lists it only as a toprope route, while its neighbor to the left is listed as 5.8R trad. Thanks for clarifying.

Comments: Going left side in makes sense, but that puts all the pro behind you and above your head which is...well, awkward. About the same angle as Easy Jam at Vedauwoo, but much wider [squeeze chimney] at the bottom.

If your partner wants to lead it too, DO NOT PULL THE ROPE. This should have been obvious to me, but I'm not a smart man.

Comments: I belayed Nate up this one. You're right-- he meant that the anchors don't have any lowering hardware, as he was on TR from the bolts you describe :)

Crux was scary for me, hearing that holds may have broken is good news for my ego.

Comments: The anchors are in kind of an awkward place for leaders-- requiring 2-3 moves above a slanting ledge after the route feels like it's over. I imagine that they're all the way up there so that the rope doesn't rub too much when toproping, but I wonder if it would be better to put them down where they could be threaded from the ledge.

Comments: I think I want this to be my first 5.10 gear route. Is the initial runout a problem for someone new to the grade?
