Comments: I think it's more of a point-of-view/foreshortening error, since I put the X on the bolt.

Comments: A 70 meter rope will BARELY get you back to the start of the pitch. Plan on 3 raps.

Comments: You won't see this sign from the parking lot, but you can see a Wichita Wall sign.
(This one is 30 seconds up the trail.)

Comments: Since this WAS originally all trad, I only showed the bolts at the lower optional anchor.
(If you blow up the photo, you can see others.)

Comments: Considerably foreshortened in photo. If you look real hard, you can find
3 or 4 bolts on either route in the photo.

Comments: Rope is still clipped into Notches on right.

On higher magnification, you can see some of the bolts on Corner Route, just to the left, which finishes at the the same chain anchors.

Comments: How sure are you THIS is Report Card? I thought RC was the anchor/route with the tree next to the railing that is 2 showerheads right of this. (I think this is Kindergarten.)

Comments: No pin that I could see. Optional pro might be a 0.4 and a #2 Camalot to shorten the higher runouts?

Comments: How did you get off if you only did the first pitch? Is there a bolt anchor where we used to use pro in the horizontal?

Comments: I left my chalk bag lanyard and a 'biner on the anchor last year. You may want to leave a new runner.

Comments: Likely the same route we did in April, we called it ABC (Already Been Climbed), start 50ft right of trail junction on Hemingway Wall. See photo. P1 was 100 feet. P2 sounded about the same: walked left and up a trough ~220' without moving belay. P3 we went up a little and then traversed left ~90 feet to some anchors and rap'd. Std rack and thought it was about 5.6.

If this isn't the same route, let me know and I'll write it up separately.

Comments: i think i belayed on that feature at the top of this pitch and decided it looked like a spine too! Nothing in the MP description mentions climbing it; you'd have to traverse a long way right to actually climb it as a pitch, wouldn't you?

Comments: This climber is at the top anchor of Webster-Ellis, 5.6 (a 1 pitch climb to the right). As a second pitch from the W-E anchor, you can zig-zag clip the last 2 bolts and cut left to the so-so anchor at the top of QYB.

Comments: THIS IS BACK TO 4 BOLTS. It took a while to find them, but we replaced the 2nd and 4th bolts (within 6" of the originals) yesterday.

This doesn't make it less likely you could fall, but the 1st, 2nd, and 4th bolts will now definitely hold you. (That 3rd bolt is a Rawl buttonhead with a Leeper hanger which [seems] ok now.) This doesn't make it safe by modern sport standards. (Remember, this is a route put up by old masters: they got to where they were AND had a good stance that allowe... more >>

Comments: Alec must have missed the classic 3 1/4" bolts-in-a-line anchor that services both this (and the X rated Unhead). After the last bolt, this classic anchor is a fair bit to the left in a scallop.

Rob, since I seem to own this climb, based on ticks, I'll offer the advice that I start all three of these right-most climbs off the big, crumbly, within-20-degree flat boulder at the base. I traverse in left to right so I've got the slab mojo going by the time I hit that first bolt. FWIW, the first... more >>
