Comments: It appears that The Matron is open for business! Looks like it wasn't even included in this years closure...

Comments: Cool. Looks like you are right.
Sorry to have accused you of foul play....

Comments: I would say 5.3 except for one tricky slab move after the crack ends (maybe a 5.5 move).

It's easy at the bottom until you reach the crack. Then it gets easier. When the first crack ends, step left to another. The crux comes after the 2nd crack ends. I stepped left again to a big flake then up right to the crack that leads to the summit... super fun.

We simul-climbed all the way to the top. But I think it would be easier (and safer) to belay when you run out of rope. And then either wa... more >>

Comments: I thought this would probably be 5.8 @ The Gunks...

Really fun little climb though. Nice sharp in-cut holds. It's over fast.... I placed 0.4 to #1 Camalots (not in that order). The only scary part is if the flake/crack pulled off with you and all your gear. Even so, the fall would probably be survivable. The hardest part may be clipping the anchor. It's a little awkward under there. The anchor just has one rotten sling with rings, so bring some quick links, or some cord to fix it ... more >>

Comments: I've done Standard Route a bunch of times over the years, but I never did this one. It's my new favorite pitch on the Elephant Buttresses! I didn't need any gear bigger than a #1 Camalot except for my anchor up top....

Hard to imagine that this went unclimbed until '91?? Especially with the old rusty pins and rusty old chopped bolt.

Comments: Does anyone know if Della-Terra minds if you walk up their driveway? This would be the best approach if it's allowed, since the well marked trail starts on the hill right behind/above the lodge. If you want to avoid their property, hike up the gully to the East, but make sure to traverse left to meet the good trail. We tried to follow the gully all the way up and wound up bush-whacking. At least we found the trail on the way down....

Comments: Yes, a 70 reaches for the first 2 pitches. Make sure to go around the right side of the tree so your rope doesn't "bother" it... Such a great beginner's route. Varied climbing with slab and crack moves on great rock with great protection.

Comments: Be careful of the lower angle routes. The jugs on these seem to collect broken glass. After cutting my finger on the first hold I touched, we decided to do the steeper routes on the left...

Comments: It's only about 5.4 to downclimb instead of "jump", but I guess that wouldn't be as fun.

Comments: The new book calls this 5.9! It was hard, dirty, and not the casual warmup I was looking for. I thought Face Full of Bush was way easier than this....

Comments: Tony, sorry if I lured you onto this by posting it.... Yeah, not the greatest route. If there was a flat ground landing, the route could be soloed as an easy boulder problem. Not a great idea with that jagged talus and the insecure lichen smearing....

Comments: Good job leading it. But I think there might be a mistake with your gear beta as there is no Blue C3?

Comments: I seriously doubt there will be much increase in traffic here because of Mt. Project. It's not like this is a secret boulder. If people follow the directions I posted, impact to the area will be far less than what is occurring now (people aimlessly trampling across that meadow).

Comments: The book lists this as V3. That's why I posted it as V2-3.... Not hard, but was hard enough for me. I'd imagine people who boulder a ton would say it's like arguing about the difference between 5.2 and 5.3.... Too easy for them to care. I thought it was a fun problem though.
