Comments: The description for this route was obviously written by an elitist prick. For example: "This would probably be a 3 star route, if it was not so overbolted." "Overbolted" depends on who you are and most of the intermediate climbers who climb this route are perfectly happy with the number of bolts. "Most climbers will feel OK clipping every other bolt on the majority of this route." If this is true, how come no one ever does this? The authors of the descriptions should stick to describing the rout... more >>

Comments: The standard descent is to walk over the summit to a ledge on the northeast side that is just below the top. From here you can rap down a steep gully with intermediate anchors to the ground in two raps with a 60 m rope. Thus, you only need one 60 m rope to do the climb.

Comments: The description for this route reads like it was written by some elitist #$%@&. Only the first two bolts are visible from the ground so you can't find it by looking for a "sea of bolts". I bolted the route for climbers who climb at that level. Why is it OK that a 5.12 can have bolts 5 feet apart and a 5.4 slab, where you're more likely to get banged up if you fall, usually has 50 foot spacings? Lots of beginning climbers have enjoyed their first lead or their first multi-pitch lead on this... more >>
