Comments: Fun adventure to get to the top of the formation - it's worth topping out for the views.

Comments: Great rock - committing moves on this one near the top, but the gear is there.

Comments: Very nice route - diverse and physical. Straightforward to do as one long (and tiring) pitch. Some tricky flared pro in places.

Comments: This is a very clean and striking crack. The lower portion seemed way hard if you don't stem. #5 C4 camelot is pretty tipped out in the narrowest part of the crack - next time I would just bring two #6 camelots. Bolts on top for belaying/TR and easy walk off.

Comments: Farewell horizontal is great, but traversing over to The Consolation from the top is kind of a pain in the ass.

Comments: As with most routes in Lower Devils, it's wise to bring a light rack to ease the runouts.

Comments: Nice exposed climbing on steep featured rock - long pitch! More or less well protected, as long as you don't break a hold on the upper part. 10a seems like a bit of a stretch, too.

Comments: First pitch was pretty gross, and had to dust feathers and crap off of most edges. The top of pitch one was particularly nasty at the mantel and belay.

On the flip side, no chalk made for a fun onsight dancing up the face! Doesn't get much better if you dig steep edging routes.

Comments: PG13 is probably due to the wide section on the second pitch. might be a little intimidating if this is at your limit. if I remember correctly, the rock is a bit crunchy in places as well.

fine line to the top of a cool formation though!

Comments: Fun climb, and certainly well worth finishing on Resolution Arete to top out. Walk off down First Creek is casual, but probably slow if you get caught in the dark. Even if rappelling, make sure to scramble up to the awesome sundeck where the two routes join!

Comments: Thanks Bob!

FYI, if heading up this, bring a wrench for the second bolt. Cool terrain.

Comments: Does anyone know what the line that leads directly above the P2 bolted belay is? Climbed up a couple bolts of this before I realized it was not 5.8 and I was off route...

Comments: Standup Flake to Super Pooper to Price of Fear is one of the better 5.10 linkups on Tahquitz

Comments: If you can deal with some lichen and flaky rock, this is a superb line - the top off-fingers section is harder than it looks from below, especially after dealing with the OW

Comments: Killer fingers with great position - easy to link this with Crossbow for a nice long pitch.
