Comments: No worries dude. I just saw your bolts Monday (didn't climb it yet though) as i expected it follows a different line than mine. mine was on the very smooth wall to the right and it went straight through the roof... our lines would only have shared 8 feet of climbing or so and mine would have been more like 12+/13a (and the first half would have crumbled :/. I might still like to put a 1 or 2 bolt variation through the roof on the cool moves I found. if that would be ok. I knew you wouldn't put u... more >>

Comments: Years ago, after inspecting the spot, I actually went so far as to drag my drill up to put up a route in this very section... I gave it a good cleaning then started testing moves, I found the rock where I was climbing to be crumbly under my feet and decided the line would only last a few ascents before it was no good. I hope you found the sweet stuff it certainly was a beautiful piece of rock and I was sad to not put it up.

Comments: there are a few routes on my list that I just went to the spot described and climbed something that sounded close enough. I believe it started up the off width near the bottom of toady dreams. just have some fun with it then check it off :)

Comments: P1: a bit of a pain in the ass. Yesterday was the second time i've done most ofthe corner start without gear and down climbed cause it was too sketch. I then did the trick with the bolt on the Possesed...

P2: I found it considerably harder than Cathedral 11a (airation and lichen delight for example) I would have called it 11b/c if I was calling it. regardless of grade, I thought it was great fun, perfect crack climbing with all the sizes :)

Comments: I TRed this one yesterday WHAT A SPECTACULAR CLIMB IN THE PERFECT SPOT!
Next time I do Recompense I will have to lead it proper but it was so FUN!

Mark- I stayed left of the arete for the first half then went around to the right and back left to the top. It seemed intuitive that way for me... I didnt see much around the corner that I liked for the first half...

Comments: Thanks ward, that's pretty much what I was thinking but I will look to be sure I'm going for the right hold :)

Comments: I checked this thing out yesterday. Seemed doable but quite hard...
in the beginning, at the second bolt I traversed left on hard crimps... Did a few layback moves to a killer jug to make the 3rd clip... I was actually able to get a good (partially no-hand) rest here... Technical moves got me to the "impossible" move. I think with the correct balance i could make it happen, I'm nursing a bad finger right now and couldn't really bear down for the move... Left hand smooth arĂȘte right hand micro c... more >>

Comments: Indeed Mark :)

As for the arete, I've looked at it, seems doable but hard. It's a question of style. For one reason or another I feel like it would be a fitting top rope problem. There is a single bolt above the arete that might make a good directional. Not sure if I'd like to see it bolted. I will eventually have a closer look at it.

Comments: It felt that way to me at first as well... it is a little tricky and quite powerful in the crux (at least the way I did it) then it eases up quite a bit... If you play on it a bit and think outside the box it might just come to you... at 6'2" i didn't think I'd get the kneebar but with some trickery i managed to get it, though it never felt perfect, it worked... best of luck! its worth the work!

Comments: When I was a bit younger I fell off with both arms over the top... couldn't find the good hold and just slid off... My spotters were of little use from that height... they basically spanked me on the way down as I crash landed on to my single pad... yeah, I recommend not falling from up there haha

Comments: I had never imagined that the current bolts were the originals, I know the kind of gear you all were using back then. As the story was told, they were left that way because that was the original placement... Thank you for debunking this myth! Now... if that old story is BS then will someone please put that anchor in a better place haha...

Comments: As I remember it, yes, you place a solid piece or 2 and pull a boulder problem that's in the v4 range... It has been a long time but i remember some contortion and funky footwork... I should re visit this one sometime...

Comments: Thanks all for your congrats.
Extra thanks to you Tom for your approval, I was hoping to run in to you out there and chat with you about it since you are "the man" out there. It is important for me to not step on the toes of my elders. I just tried my best to do it in good style.
I have the utmost reverence for this climb.

Comments: Really fun climb! I found all of the pitches to feel about the same difficulty and also found that they get more and more fun as you go :)

Comments: I heard lore that the belay was put low to hide them from view since the FA party didn't have time to do the second pitch on their first push and didn't want others to get and ideas...
