Comments: Bruce, you can rap with a single 60m rope. It is tight though and one should have knots at the end. A single 70m gives you plenty!

Hope you like the route!

Comments: I would have to agree with AC on this one, it felt pretty easy with only 90% humidity and 90 degrees. Such a relief from the raining and 100 degrees!!!!

Comments: Belayed at the second ledge and had no problem with rope drag. Great beta Carrie! First 2 pitches were 5 stars, the rest detracts. Great climb if Frogland is busy!

Comments: In my opinion the tips crack was desperate. Use a 70m rope and rap rings would be nice.

Comments: A #4 and #5 camalot will make anyone without much chimney experience feel comfortable on lead.

Comments: Use caution with the 70m rope. Our rope (an older Mammut); and another party's rope (Maxim?) did not reach. The other party had extended the rappel devices; rapped to the knots and had to clip in 3 or so feet above the belay. Our rope didn't even come close. 10 ft short?

Comments: This was a great route! All belays have new bolts. With doubles on smaller gear there are very few runout sections. Great on a cold day as the sun bakes you!

Comments: Middle pillar was running with water yesterday. The flow got sun baked all day. Big Cracking was heard when we were climbing. Needs to have some overcast cold days.

Comments: Climbed Zapata Falls WI3 (near Sand Dunes). Main flow was in great shape! Very plastic! Flow to the right was very bullet. Interesting to see the two distinctions so close. Great setting and would recommend to anyone. WI 2/3. The road had 4 to 6 inches of snow and would recommend 4 wheel drive. The hike from the top parking lot took 10 min!
