Comments: I would suggest taking one or two green aliens for the first couple of moves in the second corner. This route is amazing...FA Steve Petro?

Comments: I climbed this thinking it was "double trouble." Definitely worth doing.

Comments: I rapped the north face with one 70m. The first rap brought us to a ledge about 15-20' above the anchors, and an exposed downclimbed ensued...we also left half the rack on top and were forced to simul Kor-Ingalls to get it. Kor-Ingalls is way easy to rap with one 70m.

Comments: Yeah, I too was under the impression that this thing was first sent in the 90's. Its featured in that article "A hard crack is good to find" that was in a 97' rock and ice. somthing like that...

Comments: If you lack any form of slab skills (such as myself), expect to put in a V5 effort to get anywhere on this one.

Comments: I thought the first 15' feet of rattly fingers off the pillar were way effin hard . once the crack went splitter, i felt it eased up. Felt a bit harder than Slice'n Dice

Comments: I had a friend take a 30' ground fall on to his back from the 11+ start when three cams ripped. They were most likey placed poorly, but be warned, a big fall onto small gear is a bad idea.

Comments: I'm not sure if I put this in the right area, but this problem is just too good, and it sees very little action.

Comments: I believe you are reffering to "Failsafe," a line that breaks left off of "birds nest." I could be wrong, its been a while.

Comments: Is this that steep, laser-cut corner crack? If so, I got on this thing thinking it was wide hands- I ended up getting worked trying to do do kick-throughs/ bumping handstacks up the whole thing. OW all the way. Bring a (new) #5 Camalot for the top. Hightops, pants, long sleeve shirt highly recomended. Six stars.

Comments: Be warned that the last move has spit off many unsuspecting climbers. While the move feels quite solid, I have heard of at least 3 different people taking the fall and fuck'n up their ankles.

Comments: While on lead halfway up this corner a while back, a huge spider emerged from the crack where I was about to place gear. I almost shat myself.

Comments: I once saw a monster black widow spider pretty close to where her left hand is. Needless to say, I almost shat myself.

Comments: I had one #6 wild country, which i wakled from the start of the serrator for 20'. after that, the crack becomes too big for the last 15'-20' or so. it would be nice to have two #6 cams; its a little scary being 60' off the deck with basicaly one cam between you and a ground fall.
