Comments: I followed this route once in the early 80's on Easter sunday. All of the ledges had little piles of jelly beans. Very fun.

Another time I brought up a friend that was new to climbing. He froze up and refused to move up or down for a long long time. We had to finish in the dark when he finally decided to continue climbing...

Comments: There is a fun 5.11 variation a few feet right of the start. Might as well top rope it while you are here... Really just a tall boulder problem, and being tall is also helpful.

Comments: There is a nice RP and or #1 Ballnut placement in that corner on the left. It protects the opening move nicely.... But then back-clean it after you clip the bolt, since you will want both pieces again....

Comments: This water fall isn't right by this crag... it is at the western end of the lake in Bohinj.

Comments: It's nice to have a #3 or #4 for the belay. There is a nice crack on the left wall, and the rest of the ledge is a shattered mess. A #2 or a large hex might fit as well... Just save something large for the belay.

Also:
In case you are not up for the Northumberland Crack finish, it is possible to escape to the left at the top of this route. Maybe all the way to the walkoff but at least over to the Hot Spur.

Comments: This is the Hot Spur finish (5.6).

Probably better than the regular finish, which starts around the right side of the tree.

Comments: Yeah Mike,

We didn't find it on the way out the day we saw you. We all hiked out together and thought we were on it, but ended up back on the other one....
But I came up it next time. It was steep as hell! But, maybe better. I didn't see any ruts or wash outs. And it is more on the crest of a ridge, so it will dry faster after snow and be less prone to erosion.

So I guess my vote is yes, it's better.

Plus you get this view....
Let me know when it's time to volunteer for trail work.

Comments: My old book showed 4 bolts on the topo. So we were a little surprised by that one sad little bolt hanging out of the rock. Very safe with a big enough cam though....

Comments: Thanks, Monty....

Thanks Jason,
I figured you must have been up it as research, and we almost asked you about it but didn't want to ruin the surprise.... I slipped a few times on that ramp up to the roof, scary stuff. I only say it is 5.10 since the Umph Slot is only 5.8 right? A Valley Giant certainly isn't required, but it got placed. That thing was like a hot potato, no one wanted to carry it.

I'll do the right variation on the 3rd pitch "Next Time", ha ha ha. But seriously, this might... more >>

Comments: Nice easy lead, not even polished like others of the grade here. Beginners should bring some gear though. Not many bolts....

Comments: "Stem across dirt and pigeon shit..." Welcome to Table.
Best Route Ever = sarcasm and maybe a better name than unknown? Sorry to lead you astray.... Not one of the better routes here, but I did enjoy it.

Comments: Pretty nice hangers for being homemade, beveled edges, and not even rusty. I think I liked these better than the old gold shuts on the other routes....

The rock is mostly solid, and there are really good moves. Much more fun than it looks.

Comments: This almost felt harder than Offwidth Buldge to the right.... Maybe a foothold fell off? Lots of danger and suffering to be had on this one. Probably a BOMB, but also strangely classic.
