Comments: after burlesque the day prior, there were no real squeeze chimney portions here IMHO (correction - Burlesque attempt as my petite 6'6" frame would not fit thru. the narrowest part of that chimney). great route this one!

Comments: wonderful line with some spectacular climbing & views (& a fun summit adds to the goodness)...supposedly an enterprising farmer once got a herd of sheep/goats? onto the summit plateau for a season of grazing in the sky :)

Comments: If you're tall (enough), the starting crux is a one-move wonder which is then followed by fun stemming & double finger crack jamming to the anchors.

Comments: I thought it was hard (the move out of the roof..and then it just gets harder :) - esp. compared to some of the other 10a's on the wall. Nice climbing like all the other routes here.

Comments: Good photos of the 2nd doing the traverse on std. route but the variation mentioned above is better climbing. Also, for a superior experience, start off the ground with the right side (slanting) crack (featured in the original Oregon Rock book).

Comments: This got officially downgraded to a .9 in the new guidebook while Cruel Sister got a slight promotion to a 10b and something called Titus (a whaaaa?!??...exactly) made VP by going from a 5.9 to a 5.10b R :)

Comments: "while sizing up the chossy offwidth pitches "

did you finish it? got rained off from P1 last fall so never really saw the crack up close ("crack" on P1 was not promising...)

Comments: I might have placed a #4 C4 but I think that was mostly because I wanted to unload it. I THINK you could get away with up to blue Camalot as the OW constricts in the back & I recall placing couple of nuts actually.

Comments: Great modern route! Pitch 2 is a real gem (slab, hand crack, chimney, finger crack, steep face!) but pitches 4 & 5 were also very cool we thought. Just to echo what others said, climbing felt hard for 5.9 (compared to Too Tough... which we did the day before & Absinthe IMHO). Thanks to Geir for another great topo.
