These cuts from the brutal jams became significantly more exciting as Rich reopened and let them fester over a two week period.

A slightly exaggerated, but pleasing move to start the climb.

Comments: Thanks Rich, I appreciate the support. Anyhow, I tried to post a video of some of the"choss" that consisted of a 300 lb. rock being pealed off the top of one of the better routes. So, I will say that I support the top down bolting methods.

Comments: The reason this climb is R rated is that I almost cracked my head open at the second bolt. It happened during my first lead on this route, I was super gripped, and not thinking clearly. I was fully extended, trying to clip for like 30 seconds, then I missed it, and took a wild windmill swing that not only brought me very close to the ground, but brought my head very close to an edge. This mistake can be avoided by almost any clear minded individual. Just pull on gear, and try again. Don't be a p... more >>

Comments: choss factory. gravel pit. crumblizer. any of these names would have been more appropriate of hour of power. plus it's just a metal crux. save your belayer dirt in the eyes pain and climb crack 6 across the way. mucho better.

Comments: this was an early 5.10a for me (apparently everybody thinks it's more like 5.9, but whatever) Did it in the real real cold with my little bro. Those horizontals take shit gear. i did not want to fall. i probably could have gotten better gear, but I was fiddling with some tricams (WHY?) and was generally displeased with the situation. I don't think i've ever used a tricam again.

Comments: a fun top rope. definitely not 11c on top rope. I'd say it was 11a, on toprope of course.

Comments: I feel like this was closer to 10b. The move at the top was pretty spicy. This rock is different than the stereotypical josh grittyness that I'm used to as well.

Comments: This route was great. Don't know why there are all the low ratings here. I thought it was like a concentrated version of loose lady. All the steep edging moves, sustained, high steps. Great route. one of my favorite leads in a long time.

Comments: For sure worth doing. Just bring more gear than I did. And preferably have a bit more experience... doing chimney stuff, or I don't know If you could call it that... Bring long sleeves and long pants. My partner (after belaying me for an extended period of time) actually let me know that we would never do an offwidth again. Ever. He didn't even try it. But I would say do it.

Comments: If you've done this one try dazed and confused on the lenticular dome, it's a bit more run out, but if you're comfortable on loose lady then there's nothing surprising on dazed and confused. I'd almost argue that loose lady is a bit more difficult. And this thing is not 10a. It's awesome, and fun, but it's 5.9.

Comments: I hate this climb. Both time's I've done it. I hated it. Maybe I'll like it on my third try, third time's a charm.
