P1 of my "Clean Solo" in '01. P2 took some real deep thought to not use the hammer and lots of concentration. Truly one of my favorite and most memorable Clean Solo Desert ascents.

Comments: Have done this route over a dozen times now since May of 2011 and still can't get over the aestheticness of it all. Great Job Austin and Rick.

The last three times I have thoroughly enjoyed the "Hall Pass" varitiation to the top.

Comments: Oh what a great ride.

I definitely give it a solid 10d as the crux moves on P3 are just as sustained as the traverse moves over on Hall Pass on 3 Hour Arete.


Defintitely the PSOM Wall Classic for sure.

Comments: Car to Car in 7.5 hours. Crux P8, stay on the White Granite dishes through the first four bolts and you'll be fine. No move was harder than .10a on this pitch and they were all very pos.

Fun route and must do. There is no "R" anywhere on this route. Well protected in my book. You want some real "R" Slab, go to Stone Mtn. NC. There you can taste some real "R" Slab lines.

Even better, for some local spice "R", "Hair Raiser Buttress" at Granite Basin, an hour and a half away on the Eastern Side,... more >>

Comments: - All anchor's have three 3/8th" Bolts w/Qiucklinks attached for Rappels. All bolts on route are 3/8th" w/FIXE Hangers.

- This is an "Old Skool" slab route so do not FALL on it. There's a history of broken ankles and legs due to folks getting on this RO'd old route. Stay within 5' lt/rt of the bolt line. On P2, go up to the first obvious bolt and then right. DO NOT GO LEFT onto Alan H's new route that goes to the left.

- DO NOT CHOP ANY OF THE BOLTS....PLEASE!!!! There have been ... more >>

Comments: C3/C3+ When I Solo'd it clean in '99 and again when I returned to finish fixing up all the anchor's in '00. Jimmy Dunn and Dean Potter where still working on FFA of "Play'n Hooky" when I did my last trip. Afterwards, Dean asked me about the pro etc and at what Free Rating would it go at... I guessed in the .13's. He said he may give it a go.

Comments: First climbed it in '93 with many hand placed Beaks/RURPs and then "Clean Solo'd" this "Classic" back in '01 after a "Euro" crew finished it and really banged the hell out of P2. Had to pull some really tough "Clean Tricks" out of my tool box to avoid any further damage to this pitch on my Solo. Recent pics show that not many folks have added to the damage. Great route in my book. Please keep the pins at home and help keep it CLEAN and free from any further damage!
