Comments: So does this mean that there will be blasting on The Fiscal Cliff, or just in the area?

Comments: Thanks for the beta photo. I added those much needed anchors over 2 years ago. Please enjoy clipping them :)

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.

Comments: Fun cross moves take you into the lower crux, which is powerful on thin holds, then easier 13- climbing until the hard sequence going to the chains. Awesome and sustained, thanks to Eric for the effort on this route!

Comments: I put an extra bolt in halfway for an anchor so if people didn't have cams on them they could just do a quick 11a pitch and lower down. Not the best route in the world but kinda fun I guess, haha.

Comments: I agree, after trying everything to get to that crimp, I ended up just going to the right hand side pull out right, getting the crimp with my left, matching, then clipping. That way you're set up for the next sequence.

Comments: Thanks for the info! I got on it today, and while up the the 3rd bolt it felt like solid 12+ climbing, the sequence busting straight up past the last 2 bolts felt hard for me. Maybe I was missing something, but I thought it felt harder than Torqued Blow. Great route!

Comments: I'm not sure if I got the name right, and I don't have any FA info. If this route is really 12d, from what i saw in the guidebook, I must have missed something or a hold could have broken because going straight up after bolt 3 starts a sequence that's way harder than the 12+ crux below. Seems a bit harder than Macho Picasso. Pretty cool route though! Great job to the FA party!

Comments: What is the bolt line that starts to the left of Torqued Blow and just right of the boulder where Sky Pilot starts? It looks like it's a direct line that finishes to the left of the crack on the thin face straight above. I don't have a guidebook and couldn't find it here.

Comments: Fantastic route! I felt like the upper sequence past the jug was a touch harder than the deadpoint to the sloper, definately feels better with cooler temps. I left biners on the anchor for easy cleaning and also because running a rope through an anchor with just a bolt + quick link will twist your rope.

Comments: Great route! It is short but has great movement from bolt to bolt and even a final hard sequence before gaining the good holds to the right. Felt a smidge harder than most 13a's because of that last sequence moving up and right past the 4th bolt. I recommend stick clipping the 2nd bolt.
