Comments: I did this route on the last day of our Shuteye trip last week. It was as fun and well protected slab route. Previous comments are spot on on gear. P2 a BD .75 Cam wil protect in a pocket low on the flake. you are already through "the move" when you get it though. 2 60m ropes reached the ground from the P2 anchors. Thanks to the Anderson's for a fun route!

Comments: The two pitch bolted route below Woody can be easily led as 1 pitch. I skipped the intermediate anchor and this makes it a nice longer slab pitch.

Comments: I recently climbed at Razorback twice, and the climbing is great! Led all 3 pitches of Flash of the Blade as well as this one. However, the 3rd pitch of Slasher felt harder than the first pitch of Metalhead, with a thin and awkward crux that 1 partner bailed on, I succeeded and felt it to be 10D, with spicy sloping mantles and minor runouts above...and a 3rd in our group fell 4x at the crux. All great pitches, but I'd call P2 9 or 10a, and P3 10D? P2 is very fun, and P3 is great too, but sign... more >>

Comments: There is an unknown freshly bolted 5.7 face leading to bolted rap anchor below the start of the crack that makes a good approach pitch. Also, you can rap off the pinnacle with a 70m rope and then use the lower pitch's anchor to rap to the ground.

Comments: Nice meeting you the other day Jeff. I've enjoyed a few of your routes there now!
I think Jeff's pro hints are key. I couldn't see any bolts when I left the 6th bolt, and would have been well into the R zone if I didn't have a purple .5 C4 or equiv. when I found the brief bomber spot for it. Above that, I didn't have his recommended gear for the end of the pitch, and hadn't seen his tips (even though I'd just met him)...which made for some R excitement with no pro above last bolt. Follow wise Je... more >>

Comments: counted I think 13 bolts to the anchors out left that you can rap and TR or lead Bring in the Fembot's, to climber's left. Both really fun long pitches.

Comments: As we hung at the belay after she finished, a loud and speedy swarm? of bats zoomed into the crack overhead at insane speed! Quite a show...
