Comments: Dave, I guess I was being overly optimistic when I posted, since the roof and the crux move up higher were really fun. Your post made me realize how stressed I was between those two points. I ended up quitting like 3 bolts below the anchor because I kicked two or three chunks of rock off on accident, and my belayer forgot his helmet.

Comments: This will be a really fun route after it gets a lot more traffic (make sure at least you're belayer wears a helmet). The moves are a lot more interesting than the moves on grape ape.

Comments: Kind of a short climb, but fun. This was my first attempt on a 5.11- climb, and I had a blast. Almost every pocket is huge, and will gobble up your entire finger (and will probably eat up some skin too). Someone left some nasty ticks on almost every pocket, luckily I wasn't planning on an OS attempt. I was going to brush them off after I finished, but by the time I clipped the anchor I forgot that I had a brush on my chalk bag.

Comments: I keep wanting to take a picture of the new bolt each time I get to it (twice this year), but I always forget until I pass it.

Comments: I did this in 2010, and chickened out on my lead of the 4th pitch and just did the 4th class version. Loucks' guide gives this version (the 4th class walk up and downclimbing to the anchor) of RoTE a 5.7. I led the slab finish (finally) on 8/15/2015, and managed to get it. The Loucks' guide calls the slab a 5.8+ variation, does everyone disagree with their 5.8+ rating? I'm not going to. The slab seems about as hard as "Out of the Darkness", but the best piece of pro is a nut far left of the slab... more >>

Comments: Seems like there are a ton of different variations for the "second" pitch of this climb. I made the mistake of going up past the chimney (instead of left to the cave), and ended up with a traverse that made me envious of the easier looking traverse to the cave. The new bolt on the third pitch was definitely appreciated. This was my first time on the upper half of the route. I can't imagine leading that traverse with that rusty bolt. The rappel off of the very top was definitely adventurous, i.e.... more >>

Comments: I can second Robin's comment. I liked it so much, that while cleaning for Robin on this pitch that I left his #3 C4 in the crack and made him lower me so I could go climb it again...I mean go get his cam.

Comments: This is a great route to practice slab. It seems different every time I've got on it, and I've only finished it without falling once (out of 4 tries). Have fun on the bottom section, because if you're not comfortable on slab the upper section will get your adrenaline going.

Comments: Robin and I went to Coxcomb yesterday (4/25). We parked on the CCC side of the pump house (there's kind of a worn down parking spot just before the gate), and while we were climbing, a security guard put a note (on a napkin) on my windshield saying, "No parking in this Area. Next time you[sic] vehicle will be towed Away At your expense!! 4/25/15". Anyone know what that's about? There are no signs saying "no parking anywhere, and the pump house just has general warnings to stay out of the fence.

Comments: I really enjoyed this route. Tried it for the first time last weekend, and the slab was thought provoking, and the transition from the top of the slab, over the arete and on to the main face was super fun.

Comments: The headwall is not at all obvious (and definitely harder than Lonesome Dove). I couldn't figure it out, so I went right and used the crack.

edit: I went back and found a few pretty big crimps just left of the crack on the right that made it better. I'd still say a bit harder than lonesome dove. Fun route, and the move from pussy whipped to the tiger by the tail face isn't that difficult, but it is exciting.

Comments: I just climbed it yesterday (11/24/2014), and the hangers looked fine to me too. Right anchor looks almost brand new, and the left anchor wasn't sharp and only seemed slightly worn as Jason said (I definitely had no problem trusting it).
