Comments: Not bad, I agree the hardest part was at the first bolt. Some cool moves up higher.

Comments: Really liked this route, but didn't think it was that hard. Hopefully it just means I'm getting better.

Comments: Really surprised this is 10b.... I thought it was much easier, but maybe I'm just getting better. Still a very fun route.

Comments: I thought this was a really fun climb, lots of good crimpy holds mixed in with a few jugs.

Comments: As of 3/19 the loose block is gone - and the anchor has been updated to 2 bolts at the left side of the pillar.

Comments: Hey guys, my partner and I were climbing below you on LJW today (3-11-12) when you dropped the Alien cam. It didn't hit anyone, but some guys on the trail yelled up to my partner to let you know that it landed on a rock after that drop. You might not want to use it any more. I didn't see it laying at the base when I came back down, so I'm guessing you were able to retrieve it.

Happy climbing!

Comments: Didn't mess with the crappy P1 start... instead did Ignonimity to P1 of LJW and beyond. Linked the first 2 pitches together, and then linked the last 3 for a 2 pitch climb with a 60m rope. Just seems like a huge waste of time to do it in 5 pitches, as long as you use some shoulder-length slings, rope drag isn't too bad. Anyway, loved every minute of it, this is one of my favorite 5.8s in the canyon!

Comments: I did this one as a TR from the anchors for Duh Dihedral. The crux move seemed very hard for me, even harder than Pool of Blood to the left.

Comments: Very cool - I thought it was easier than the 9+ to the right of it. Loved the slight overhang at the top.

Comments: I followed this one today. Fun crux move, but my foot slipped and I fell from about 10 feet up. With rope stretch I hit the ground, although it was cushioned quite a bit. Fired right back up and enjoyed a great climb the rest of the way to the top. Moving out right around the corner near the top was really nice.

Comments: Fun, easy handcrack for the start, to more fun, thinner finger cracks later on.

Comments: Spicy moves at the beginning made this seem a little harder than 7 for me. Still liked it a lot, great route.

Comments: This was a fun route, but it felt harder than its 5.9 neighbor down the way, "Made in the Shade." Anyone else agree?

Comments: This was good, but this route and the two directly to the right of it can get a bit crowded around the first two bolts. The starts of all these routes just seem too close together.

Comments: This is a fun route, but the roof itself didn't feel like the crux for me. Anyone else think the face after the roof was a bit harder?

Comments: I had fun on this climb today, but I did it top-rope from the Gondolier Arete anchors, because I didn't see the point in bringing trad-gear to the Canal Zone. Definitely would be a good lead for someone working on leading 5.8-5.9.
