Comments: Interesting features on this one. Wish I would have known about the left variation when I did it.

Comments: Two move wonder. I was definitely doing it the reachy way by grabbing a very high under cling right at he bolt.

Comments: Had to bail after P4 due to darkness but I thought up to there was absolute junk. I looked forward to doing the rest however. My beta is to skip the first 4 pitches and enter the Ubangi Lips from Angel's Fright.

Comments: Meader is the last name of my uncle. He climbed with Dave back in the day. Funny coincidence that he was a climber, I didn't even know until many years after I started climbing myself. He still lives in the area but is more into MTB now.

Comments: I just checked out the topo in the new book, it's spot on. Wish I saw that before I climbed it!

Comments: I did this a bit weird. Started right of El Dorado and placed gear as high as possible to the right, then down climbed back left and then straight up to the first bolt. Two stars for P1.

On p2 I traversed right from the anchor to easy ground. I didn't notice the shiny new bolt straight up. Not a good looking pitch either way. There's not bolted anchors at the end of p2.

For p3 I chose the 5.9 option to the right also not noticing the first bolt I traversed straight right from the bolted anchor... more >>

Comments: P1 is a great 10a with a bolted anchor. P2 has great climbing but the bolts are SHIT! Looks like roofing nails pounded with home made aluminum hangers.

Comments: Hmmmm, seemed not very protectable at the start of the layback arch. I went up about 15ft then traversed across from Open Book skipping the wide part of the layback, seemed like a good call. Then did a wild stemming move to traverse up into Mechanics.

Comments: Climbed the crack finish, would have been runout without my #000 C3! Sundike is the superior finish.

Comments: Sustained? Not really, good rest before the crux. I sewed it up with a purple and red C3. Felt on grade, 10b maybe. A #4 (or was it a #5?) was useful in the first quarter. Interesting succulents in the upper crack!

Comments: Way too much faith is needed in your rubber to gain the first bolt.

I think you were off-route Jim. After clipping the second bolt go straight right for 10ft to gain the 3rd.
