Comments: First bolt above the roof is surprisingly far from previous one (out of character with the rest of the route and the rest of the crag), but the climbing is very easy. A fun line, absolutely worth doing, but there are better options if you want gym-like bolt spacing.

Comments: Note--*you* pass on the right side of Crack of Noon Buttress. The buttress will be on your *left*. Match what you see with the mountainproject pic and you'll do fine.

There's an amazingly clear, rock-bordered foot path from the top corner of the pullout. It is heading southwest as described, though I'd have sworn it was northwest. Somebody put a lot of love into this trail--kudos.

Came here to help a friend fulfill his 35th birthday challenge--35 bolts (not counting anchors) in 35 minutes. The... more >>

Comments: Pretty much exactly the same difficulty as p1 of Supergrinder. I'll call them both 10a.

Comments: Doh, sorry, yes, right, not left. I'll edit the original post.

Yeah, Supergrinder p2 2nd bolt is a few inches above a knobby rail/dike extrusion. If you're coming up Supergrinder, the move is sort of left traversing (at least the way I've done it). But you can get to it from directly below if you're coming up Shattered Glass, which is what I did--it felt hard. Before committing to doing it that way on Shattered Glass, I first traversed right, in the vicinity of the 1st bolt on Supergrinder. Tha... more >>

Comments: The only person to send it so far is 5'7"; if you are taller than that, you may really struggle. The roof beta from the FA is here (and is mesmerizing):

Comments: Amazing line & position. Heady bolt spacing on the traverse. Distinct crux at 2nd to last bolt of arete. Holds morning sun longer than most west-side walls.

Comments: Maybe 35 meters; definitely not 35 feet.

Really, really good. Quite easy if you use hand and foot jams. Still pretty reasonable even carefully eliminating all back-of-hand and top-of-foot contact. A bit more strenuous using only the right lip of the crack and the features to the right. Fun to play around with on TR--so many features to work with!

Comments: Fantastic. It's all pretty easy except for the p2 crux. P1 must have cleaned up nicely--it's about as clean as you could hope for, minus one loose flake that has a lot of chalk on it. Quite easy to avoid that flake.
