Comments: 2 1/2" SS ASCA bolts w/ links were installed on the top of the second pitch.

This route is adventurous and the rock quality is questionable at times on the 2nd pitch... Use caution! I believe the story was erased on here, but a couple local climbers had some serious rockfall w/ a cut rope.


1st pitch: This was the most obvious line to get to the base of the climb w/ the least amount of crunchy rock. We tried to make it a lil less bushy, but it's still bushy. Climb 4th class shenanigans until y... more >>

Comments: This route has recently been replaced. Another classic Urisote route which has lost sight because of the old quarter inch bolts. The two 11 corners are fantastic, exposed, and technical on excellent rock. After the Crux pitch, I don't think the rest of the route is worth doing.

Pitch 1: A little different than the guidebook. Scramble up to the left facing corner. Climb the corner midway through and then head right over the arete onto the face where the protection is good. Going straight up the ... more >>

Comments: The anchor has been restored a top of pitch 2. A 1/2" SS 5 piece ASCA bolt was installed near the previous bolt which had came out. The old hole was patched. We weren't able to get the wedged nut out, but it is somewhat hidden. Enjoy!

Also, there is now a optional rap descent off of Time's Up (Anchors replaced) if The Nightcrawler is a little busy. The route can easily be rapped with a 70m and possibly even a 60m. I'd stay on belay while traversing over to the times up anchors.

Comments: Jumped on this thing yesterday, was excited to climb it ever since ya'll posted it up. I thought the route route was enjoyable, adventurous, stout, and bold. It's committing nature is was really brought me in, all natural belays. Retreat from any point would be somewhat difficult unless you want to leave gear. Far from a classic, but something a local in the area might want to jump on. I think the route will get better as it cleans up, but still is very fragile in a lot of areas.

As far as a ra... more >>

Comments: 1st pitch - 8 bolts, No gear needed.

2nd pitch- Sustained and awesome. Bring the rack. Don't forget the RP's, thought that it was pretty heads up.

3rd pitch - amazing. Bolts/gear

4th pitch - crux is in the beginning, liebacking up a left slanting crack, then it's 5.8/9 climbing w/ spaced bolts on plates/petinas. Bolts/gear.

5th pitch - slab/petina climbing, bring a single 2 or 3" for protection in a horizontal after the 8th bolt.

Like others have said, you could probably go w/out the numb... more >>

Comments: Cassandra, Killis, and I replaced all of the bolts w/ ASCA hardware.

As of 3/25/12, the last few quarter inchers still need to be removed from the 4th pitch, which can easily be done by bringing a wrench and tightening the bolt until it snaps. (Yes, the bolts are that bad.)
