Comments: The route is Kevin spies the line: mountainproject.com/v/colorado...

First lead? Watch the ankle-rope action once you are clipped.

Comments: Thought provoking clips on lower angle climb. Holds are small, some sloping, but they are all there. 3 Glu-in bolts give the climber confidence to peek over the top, resulting in a beautiful view of the Pacific. Long distances between clips result in missed-clip groundfalls, so It is best to have your whits about you before attempting this climb.

Comments: Why is that first draw unclipped? rope drag issues?

Comments: Obviously there is no need for a bolt here with the cam placement in that seam below. Freaking sportos.

Comments: I disagree with the authors assessment of gear at the crux. I saw at least 2 cam placements for pulling the crux roofs, which aren't all that bad anyway. Just watch for loose rock while approaching the roofs.
You *can* get some gear in the puzzle pieces, but the rock there is questionable at best, so be solid in the grade if you are looking to lead it.

Pucker up if you are solo and onsight on this route tho, the roof pulls are cryptic, the hands are a bit smeary on the second, but if you get ... more >>

Comments: Well worth the long approach. Look for a small cairn just past the Zinn overlook on the left. This is a good crag on those hot days. Parts of it are shaded most of the day, and it is a few thousand feet up above the parking lot (providing some alittudinal relief from the heat).

Comments: Thanks to Tzilla for fixing up that rap anchor. This is a not-to-be missed climb. A great warm up for hardmen, rapping the last anchors will deposit you directly at the "fun" stuff. This climb has an eye-opening start (10a), followed by some terrific 5.9 slab climbing, a roof (10a), and an awkward dihedral that you could off-width for 20 feet, so you desire. (a bit of everything?) P2 has stellar position, with a cryptic crux including an exposed leftward step into space. I think P2 is a bi... more >>

Comments: Agree, a sandbag at 5.10b. I actually find the blank face preceding the overhang to be the crux. Head right to easier climbing.... Straight up thru here probably goes at 11+. The overhang turns at 10b. This climb is well bolted, so if you are comfortable on 5.10 and wanting to push it a bit, hop on.

Comments: I think P2 is as-hard or harder than p1 on this climb. Dead vertical, it's hard to get a good rest stance, and the moves are technical. I failed at placing adequate gear and took a 25 footer (cam in flaring crack failed). Thank goodness I did not take out my belayer in the process. Be careful out there folks!

Comments: Is this route the small (12 inch) roof to the left, or the larger (4 ft) roof that forms the corner of the arete of Snow Crash? I'd say the larger roof goes at 10a or so. Has it been done previously?

Comments: Probably the only worth-while climb at this crag. I think 10- is a very generous grade. Probably easier if you are taller.

Comments: I agree with Tony both that the top and bottom pitches are about equivalent in difficulty, and that the gear placements do not warrant an S rating. I will say however that the gear on the P2 traverse is strenuous to place. I was only able to get a small nut and a yellow tcu before clipping the pin and giving it a go around the corner. Once I got around the corner, I was expecting the climb to let up a bit, but a number of 5.9 moves awaited me before I found a substantial rest stance. Great c... more >>

Comments: At the top of the second pitch (of Over the Hill) The belay tree has died and no longer wears the mark of countless rappel slings. You may downclimb easily (climber's left) To another rappel tree, or continue right on down. There is one 5.1 exposed move on the downclimb.

Comments: Don't be fooled by the featured start. Be prepared to be a little run out on small gear heading up to the bolts. The first piece of gear was well off the ground and I felt was strenuous to place. Small cams are advisable.

Comments: I think this is a good route, and while it may not be 5.11 for the duration, the top section still ticks in at 5.10c/d. I think the first bolt is way too high off the ground, so consider a stick clip. The problem is that the while the first bolt is just out of reach of clipping from the ground, the fall from this ledge would likely send you to the hospital. Would the FA agree to the addition of a bolt lower down to avoid this possibility?

Comments: I only did the first pitch of this route, and found it to be sustained 5.10d. The second pitch we did not do because Maciej pulled off a large chalky block, just by barely touching it. He lowered from the first bolt after the first belay. There was definitely more loose stuff up there. Normal spring climbing stuff, there is a good chance this route has changed a bit with the block that Maciej pulled down.

Comments: I like this climb better than the East Face Direct. Less crowded, but there is also a lot less gear, so you have to be comfortable with running it nearly a full rope length.

Comments: I actually thought this was considerably easier than Dementia. Hard for a 5.9, as you have to place gear while hanging out on the overhanging section, but the hold there is good, and a medium sized slotted nut is quick to place with the left hand. One awkward move in the middle brings you to easier climbing. Walk off is recommended. I think this is the most sustained and best 5.9 at this crag, and may be the best climb at the cliff, it's a toss-up between this and Twofer's for me. I like th... more >>
