Comments: The upper arete on this route is very fun and worthy of the hike, I just wish it was longer. The lower section, climbing through the hollow death flakes is terrifying, those things are going to kill someone. As far as the grade, I think 12+ is more appropriate, since I did it onsight and I typically don't onsight 13a. Nice job, Scott!

Comments: Nice variation, Will! A fun ending and a better warm up, for sure. The crux, however, is cleaning the route. You will want to follow it to clean it.

Comments: It goes straight up. It was originally bolted to go out left but was rebolted by the first ascentionist. Either way, you are past the crux, so it probably doesn't matter.

Comments: Hey Allen, one is Twitch and the other is a project just right of that, is that what you're referring to? Send me a message and I'll give you some more info.

Comments: I replaced the bolts and anchors on Twitch today. Thanks to the Boulder Climbing Community for donating the 1/2'' stainless steel Fixe bolts. I also trundled the loose flake at the top of the climb, it wasn't hard to pull out either which was a bit scary. Pulling out the large flake does not effect the climbing difficulty at the top at all, it needed to be done.

  • Condition report: the first bolt and one of the old anchor bolts were very hard to take out, so I will be back in the next few days ...

Comments: Thanks! Yeah, it's a tough little guy. Definitely solid for the grade but a little easier than some of the classic 12a's like Wet Dream, AKT, and BDD. Breaking the Mold is well worth the effort, have fun!

Comments: Wow! What a great variation to a great route. After the no hands rest halfway, there isn't a single hold that's bigger than a sharp crimp, and the stone is immaculate. Hard to grade a route like this, but definitely a grade harder than Convicted Felon. The easier end of 12c is appropriate. Thanks, Dave!

Comments: Excellent work, Jay! A true testpiece for the area and a great way to work on a hard route while avoiding the crowds at Primo. I can't wait to get back on this!

Comments: I climbed this and got the FA in 2012 after John put up the sport routes. I'm surprised anyone else got on this. I thought it was seriously dirty and felt more like 10-.

Comments: When I put the first set of anchors in, there were fixed biners on the quicklinks. Now that someone has stolen them, I do not plan on investing anymore money into this climb. If anyone climbs this to the first anchor, they may want to consider another set of quicklinks so their rope doesn't get twisted.

Comments: I redpointed this route after cleaning the holds(still a bit dirty in spots) and figuring out the funky sequence/boulder problem. This is kind of a one move wonder, with a hard sequence in between the first and second bolt. After figuring out the powerful undercling-press-move, it didn't seem too bad, but it took me a little while to realize that was the way to do it. Since it's a boulder problem with a rope and super funky, I think a soft 5.12b rating is appropriate. Could be easy if you're rea... more >>

Comments: I checked out these routes today. Nice job, the three bolted lines on the left are pretty fun moderates. I thought they were all about 10a with one or two of them getting close to 10b. The rightmost route is pretty dirty but not bad, and the trad line is very protectable and kind of cool. Child's Play was my favorite.

Comments: I jumped on this rig today. Excellent climbing pulling over the roof, and the last pitch is one of the best on the whole wall. I will say the mantel move before the roof is a bit reachy (not sure how a shorty would do it) and the rock is just a bit crumbly below the roof. I think the roof pitch is 12b and the last pitch is 11d. Great job, guys, nice addition!

Comments: While the rock on the first half and majority of this climb sucks, the crux up higher is wildly amazing.

Comments: There is definitely some truth to that. The moves down low are cryptic and a bit reachy but easy once you chalk up the actual holds that are slightly left of the bolt line. I think that goes for all of the routes on the wall because of the crumbly schist that exists on the techy slab moves. I thought all of the routes here, except Tropicalia, were decent, but the real perk for coming here is the seclusion.

Comments: I'm not 100% sure it's drilled, but it's a way to describe it since it looks that way. I hope this doesn't turn into a drilling debate, but there is a history of drilled pockets in sport climbing areas in the '90s. I'm not a history buff, but ethics do change over time and it is not acceptable anymore, but I'm not gonna hate on a route if it's already there.

Comments: Two of the holds in the low crux leading up to the drilled mono are flexing and about to go. I think that would make this route just about impossible, unless they formed new holds. This line would be cool if someone took a ton of effort to clean the loose chips and flakes on the first half of the route and reinforced a few holds with glue.

Comments: Not that I know of. A few of the moves going up and right after the ledge halfway are a little forced, but the moves past that are fun. After putting a #2 Cam in the upper crack you kinda move out right towards the arÍte then back up and left over the small roof for the final crux.
