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: Fun route! Any reason why it hasn't been equipped as a sport or mixed lead?

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?

Comments: There's a large plate about 6' above the big crystal that is beginning to ring hollow and was seeping a little water from the bottom. I don't think it's ready to fall yet, but if water's getting behind it, it probably won't last many more winters.

Comments: The crux is so very tense...3 stars for all of the swears I muttered while committing myself to those moves. The bolts are exactly where you need them, just move thoughtfully (and I'm the kind of person that wishes every route had an extra bolt or two).

Comments: Fun but short. It was quite wet today, which caused me to take my first fall on gear in like 4 years. On a really crappy nut, which miraculously held!
Maybe don't plan on doing this one during spring runoff.

Comments: I left the wires on the ground and definitely wanted them in the first half of the crack.
More fun than the left route, I think.
