Comments: NOTE to pocket driller: Use a bigger bit next time. I couldn't fit my fingers in!
Just kidding, chipping sucks....

Comments: No trad gear needed.

Descent option: If you don't want to climb with a 2nd rope. The top pitch can be rapped with a 70m. Then the first person can rap on a single 70 to the ground and tie on an extra rope....

Comments: A #4 c4 is useful. You can bump it up, but leave it by the little chockstone. You won't need it beyond there....

1 #4 (optional, but nice)
2 #3
2 #2

Comments: There is a huge rat, or rats that live in this route. You can avoid the mess, but don't be surprised if you see one in your face! It's nice to have a #4. You can bump it up most of the way... After every move there will be a bolt staring you in the face. Avoid clipping at all cost. I mean without rules, there would be friggin' anarchy!!

You can easily use the anchor from the dumb bolt route, or better yet step right and lower off the new hooks on Flight 67....

Comments: This would be 3 stars if the other wall wasn't there. It's annoying trying to avoid the stem. But there are really fun, well protected moves....

And you don't need anything bigger than a purple Camalot (and I don't mean #5).

Comments: Can easily link into 3 pitches with a 60m.
P1 To the base of the offwidth, 200ft.
P2 offwidth then up 40 feet of easy slab and chimney to the highest ledge, 110ft.
P3 Crux to the top, 130ft.

The crux is easy to avoid by stepping left....
A #5 C4 was nice for pitch 2 (we didn't need a #6 at all).

Comments: Jason Haas' new book describes this as that crack on the west face (seen in my photo on the right), but it could possibly be the crack on the North face that ends just left of the summit block on a ledge (behind the tree in the photo). The north face crack didn't look much fun, but the west face one is appealing, but short.... Looks like I rapped from the wrong place??

Comments: One more sling added....
If you are tall, there is a great big nut placement that protects the opening. The upper part of the low angled corner seems insecure, but if you dig out some pine needles, there are some small placements.... Really fun route.

Comments: Look out for the booby trap on the unprotected traverse, pure death....

Oh yeah, the walk off to the right is faster than rapping.

Comments: The rock this route is on is called "The Pile" and this route is called The Naugahide Stool, according to the new Gillett book.... He is also claiming the FFA. Alvino Pon bolted it but maybe never even climbed it? The rock probably doesn't warrant its own listing, since this is the only route, and it's right next to the Sentinel.
Anyway, worth a lap if you like weird slabs. It's better to rap the route than to lower, because there is tons of drag from all the low angle, rough rock....

Comments: Just seeing it from the road, you can tell it's a classic. The approach pitch wasn't the best, and there is even poison ivy on the climb! The trail or lack of a trail is pretty bad as well. But the crack makes it all worth it. Great protection, fun moves, and a good position...and soooo much less traffic than Boulder Canyon.

Comments: Just kidding, it really is clean. You just walk through this notch to get to the start of the crack....
