Comments: I didn't haul the crash pad up there... but that's not a bad idea.

Note to soloists: bring two #4 Camalots and one #5 for the anchor under the tooth.

Comments: i for one agree with the removal and the NON-replacement of this bolt. its an eye sore and not needed in these modern days of fancy cams.

Comments: Freeclimbed the 1st three pitches to the roof the other day. Pitch 1 is 5.9. P2 is 5.10+ with some thin pro. P3 is 5.10-. We rapped from here with two 60m ropes to the webbing at the top of P1. I'd give the 1st 3 pitches a star or two.

Comments: Everyone has a different opinion of each climb and I feel obligated to call this one a bomb. Greenery, not so solid rock and flared cracks inc. The worst exit wall climb I've done.

Comments: the old anchors and one protection bolt have been replaced on pitch 1. if youre not up for leading this serious first pitch you can easily reach the anchors for a great TR via the anchors on p.1 of fat city. only one of the two bolts for lead have been replaced (the 2nd one).

Comments: [Don't] forget your crash pad for the start. A sucker belayer/spotter might also come in handy.

Comments: One can rap with a 60m rope from the anchor below the roof down to the top of the 5.9 flake. Plus, the anchor below the roof now sports a spankin' new bolt as of 02/2002.

Comments: I seem to remember something about a mass heap of lichen on pitch one of this route... at the crux? A bit easier and not 1/2 as steep as Cathedral Wall proper but a pretty fun route all the same.

Comments: I swear I'm telling the truth! A yellow TCU was the only thing I could get to stick in the first pin scar in the roof. Only two cams were touching the rock, and as soon as I reached out and placed the next TCU, the yellow blew out. Just about messed my britches. P.S.- I've only seen em in the mags, but those new "2 cams" from Splitter Gear might work here also??
