Comments: I've always had my belayer on the nice block at the start of Ranger Bolts and either skipped the bottom 5.12 section by starting on Ranger Bolts and transferring over or doing the same but then lowering into the very base of West of the Sun, essentially doing the bottom few bolts on top rope and transitioning to leading after.

Comments: A somewhat key hold has broken off just shy of the first set of anchors making this slightly harder now but maintains the same grade, in my opinion.

-To the first set of anchors feels solid 5.11d/5.12a and is great climb itself.

-To the middle anchors which Jim described in his comment is 5.13a - but stopping there may cause Yabo to roll over in his grave.

-To the tippy top is 5.13a but with a 5.12a red point crux at the top - If you do it this way Yabo rests in peace.

Comments: If you place protection in the cracks, like you should, you won't find the route deserving of a R rating. A good rack is 1/2'" to 3" or purple to blue C4 camalots.

Comments: Great climbing, difficult for the grade? Maybe. I had a hard time reading the sequences squinting into the sun. The second pitch (the first bit of 5.11 climbing) was hugely fun. Steep jugs and bolts in Yosemite Valley?!?! Yeah dude!

If you see either of these names in the FA section of the guide then you know what to expect. Bold and classic Pinnacles climbing.

R Rating: Given the ledges on the route the possibility for injury is a real possibility. However, the crux is well protected and the only place of concern is above the last bolt (after the crux) while placing some gear in a flake from good holds. A couple medium cams do the job.

Comments: Rumors are rumors, but a rumor is that a hold has broken at the bottom crux sometime after the FA. After investing some time trying to find a sequence I could see some possibility in climbing the route but I don't feel like it would still be climbed at 5.12d. Has anyone out there done this line recently?
