Comments: The crux of China Doll was my first A3/C3 lead. The last moves to the pitch 4 anchor involve multiple linked hooking moves using the talon on some VERY micro edges (<1/4"). I decided hooking felt more secure than the shit gear that Jason describes above. Pucker factor was high, but the pro was good and any fall would have been clean.

Every pitch but the crux was cruiser; great clean pro, we did the whole thing with one set of offset nuts, 2 sets of stoppers... more >>

Comments: Looking for some beta on aiding this. Does this route go to the summit? What is the gear like above the angling crux seam?

Comments: You can reach the ground from the summit with a single 70m rope doubled over.

Comments: I hadn't been up Skunk Canyon since before the Sept. 2013 floods, and it looks GREAT! The flood has scoured the bottom of the canyon and removed most of the thick vegetation and loose rocks. The approach hike is now very straightforward and easy. There is definitely poison ivy but none that I couldn't step over or around.

Comments: Route has intermixed snowfields and near vertical (WI 2-3). Some patches where snow has melted out but GREAT conditions for the most part. Mixed climbing. Entire route can be protected with rock gear, though a short screw may be helpful.

Comments: Good overhanging aid (A1 due to long moves?) practice spot. The bolts remove most of the groundfall potential. There are definitely a couple of reachy placements. Fun!

Comments: "Fixed" gear still in place at crux. SO MUCH FUN! The crux protects perfectly with a purple Camalot from the stance before you start the lieback. The hardest part of this route was the belly flop above the crux to where you will build your anchor.

This route taught me that I should never leave home without my tricams....

Comments: CAREFUL. Not only does this climb only have one bolt anchors, THE BOLT DOESN'T HAVE A HANGER RIGHT NOW. There is another anchor about 10 feet lower and out onto the east face of the Ironing Board, but it is aligned for a rap to the east, and a 70m rope does not reach the ground. WARNING WARNING WARNING. NO HANGER. NO WAY TO RAPPEL.

The threads on the bolt look new, but bring a hanger and nut on your next ascent.

Comments: To echo other comments here, this is a heady lead or solo. The first two pitches have some spots where the good holds are few and far between. The climb will be runout regardless, but I think the key to avoiding terrain that is too blank is to move farther left into the next small crack. I avoided the crux below the first small tree by going far left to a large flake and liebacking up from there. If you get off route, you had better be prepared to hold your stance for a while until you find... more >>

Comments: Climbed on June 7th (photos to come later).

The snow is near perfect from base to summit (firm not wet, perfect for kicking steps). There is a discontinuity about 1/3rd of the way up that can be avoided by some easy scrambling to climber's left.

There is a large gap between the top of Skywalker and the bottom of the Leia finish. The gap can only be passed by climbing 10' of rock on climber's right. In mountain boots and crampons, I would guess that the rock moves go at 5.4 or so (in app... more >>

Comments: I got my first taste of clean aid on this route this weekend. Really fun moves with consistently good gear.

To all the trad leaders, my hat goes off to you.
