Looking straight at the only side with decent problems on it. This is the face that is visible from the road.

Comments: Start: LH sidepull, RH pocket/pinch. Enjoy that flexing hold; if it held me, you'll [probably] be fine. ;)

Comments: Sit start on jug. Angle up and right using a crimp and a bad sloper to gain the start of Sukha. Don't go to the very top of the boulder, jump back down from first ledge.

Comments: Did this still not see an ascent? I got on it to play back when I was working the .12s on this wall, and it didn't seem that infeasible, maybe V8 crux (based purely on my imagination). Did any of the strong guys mentioned above end up trying it?

Comments: This problem exists in its own section on this site. Perhaps this one can be deleted since it's redundant.

Comments: Looks like an undercling broke off at the top *recently??* right next to the third bolt. There's no obvious way to move up and right to where the TR anchors are located but there appears to be a sequence that would top out going left (pretty reachy/hard). Has this seen a recent ascent to verify the grade? Flake out left just after first bolt is also very flexible! For all these warnings I will add that the movement is pretty incredible for a 3 bolt problem :)

Comments: AMAZING! Best route of my visit!
Alternative descent is to belay up your second, top out the climb, walk back into the chimney, boulder out, and scramble/hike down (the portion of the 'walkoff' that navigates the summit is nearly technical and a bit heady). I didn't see any two bolt anchor in the dihedral (But maybe I didn't look close enough).

Comments: BEWARE FIXED ANCHORS!! All the lower-offs that I saw at The Alcove (5.June.2013) were in desperate need of replacement. They were all dangerously worn and sharp!! I do not recommend lowering off of them and you should instead rappel (and NEVER TR on permanent anchors).

Comments: Couldn't be sure of where this line actually went. Tried locating it based on the description here and the picture in the actual guidebook. Perhaps the third bolt requires an awkward/contrived series of moves out to the right and then back?? Otherwise this is a .10a R that climbs straight up on good pockets.

Comments: Thanks for the effort on Homespank directions everybody :P If this is in fact the big wall that runs for a 1/4 mile uphill above the gigantic talus field, then comers beware: The approach trail is several hundred yards down the road from where the "flat parking" is described (there are a couple 1-2 car pullouts in the vicinity) and it's nearly impossible to find if you don't know what you're looking for. The trail is difficult to follow through the talus and is completely unmarked. The rock at t... more >>

Comments: Hard, no matter which way you go about it. You will be pulling on small/sharp crimps or terrible pockets for the crux sequence. Height won't really help you out either. Enjoy the first two bolts, bust the crux, clip 3, hold it together thru the balancy moves to the anchors. Not soft for the grade IMHO.

Comments: Good rock, fun climbing, lichen on some [good] holds. Several options to start, 1st bolt too low / unnecessary because there is a good stance for clipping the second.

Comments: A little awkward for most of the route, follows 3 distinct features for only 1/2 of their length then the climbing ends abruptly. Still dirty and looks like several holds will come off with traffic. There could definitely be a direct start thru the steep rock into the arete.
