Comments: Does anyone know what the "Seam Direct" finish is all about on P.2? Rather then breaking right around the bulge, you would stay in the seam. From what I remember: there was a fixed nut and 2 bolts (with red tags).

Comments: Nope, not us (CMS). Fixed ropes...on Dragontail.....on M2. C'mon now. You should make more educated assumptions in the future.

Comments: Steve Su and I climbed this on November 26, 2005. We fixed a Knifeblade for a belay 20 feet to the left of the start of the pillar. Another blade or some RPs would complement the anchor and is recommended given the fallout terrain and the tenuous nature of the route and its protection (especially at the start).
We also fixed an angle approx. 10 feet up in the crack at the back of the wall.
The "approach" pitch is a little exposed and you may want to consider roping up.
Also, given that this u... more >>

Comments: Helpful Beta....take your helmet and pack off for the crux. You may want consider ditching your pack for the OW section on p.9 too (only necessary if you are as pooped as I was). If you have a tag line, you can haul your pack on these pitches....but given the fact that a possible walk off ledge splits the route, it's a good route to go commando style on (one rope). After p.1 (400 ft.), No pitch is over 120ft.

Comments: FYI- The Park Service and (hopefully) competent volunteers will be doing an East Face/ Diamond clean up on the weekend of Sept 17/18th. The cleanup teams will be ascending Kiener's and rapping in from Table ledge. They will be removing as much tat and bail junk as they can on The D and the Lower E. Face. It might be wise to avoid the area that weekend as it could be a bit of a madhouse.

Comments: This is a great addition to Twin Owls. [Don't] underestimate it, it packs a punch. The gear is good....but you need to know where to place it. My belayer was telling me if the gear in the layback/ undercling flake was good because I [couldn't] really see it. Also, save a green alien for the traverse between the two cracks.

Comments: ...A helpful hold broke from just below the overhang last year, upping the ante a bit. Slab climbing w/ crampons and tools is really fun. Take your meds....

Comments: I'm not very good at the rating game, but after talking with some folk who have tried it and after doing the route...I'm thinking mid/hard 12. I'm psyched to try it placing the gear and for other folks to get on it and see what they think. [It's] a great route.

Comments: The Des is starting to disappear. The top right side (20 ft or so) is completely hollow with an inch of veneer over running water. The Fang is in great shape 4+ or 5-.
