Comments: This problem has been done long ago I believe. I have climbed the line many times as an alternate warm up. Likely late 70s early 80s.

Comments: I don't recall any bad rock on this route. I have done it a few times as a warm up in the area. I see plenty of people on it. Have you climbed it recently mark? Maybe I need to relook at it. Thanks!

Comments: This picture doesn't do this climb justice. Judging by the picture you would think one would merely boulder this. Upon scrambling up to the base of this climb you realize this is a short but nice crack climb that is quite taller in person than in pictures.

Comments: this problem has seen some clean up and ascents since this was posted. It deserves a few stars as its a great problem now that all the lichen is off.

Comments: The Joker 5.9x follows up just left of the arete into the flake up top on the left and then follows huge crystals to the top. The arete staying on the arete proper is an old 5.10 TR that was recently bolted. The face to the right of the arete is the classic Sundogs 5.11d. The bolted face on the west face is the original route 5.6

Comments: Looks like cake walk. Actually quite harder than it looks with a few thinker spots. Mainly your just fighting the pump in the crux(es) because of the small holds and looking around for the next.

Comments: This is in the Iron Mountain area er vicinity kind of off by itself. Superb rock quality on this gem and the pictures and video make it look easy. Crux is throwing to a small 2 finger if that sharp crimp right before you throw for the top.The youtube video picture below is the crux move.

Comments: If you climb another route to the top. You can TR this route. You might have to rap to the anchor I can't remember. I did set it up a few years back for a climber and it worked just fine.

Comments: in passing around the sametime a few years ago I asked what route it was. Just here say. I'm sure you got it. If you haven't heard anything then its probably accurate. As for Harrisons Comment above: Helen Keller followed it she wanted to work it ON-SITE but couldn't.
