Looking up at the second and third pitches. I began the pitch just right, then moved up and left to a lieback flake with a fixed pin and hex. Then I moved back right and up. I moved over the big roof

Looking at P2 from Bye Gully. From this perspective, it seems pretty obvious that I joined Continuation after moving left half-way up the pitch.

I went left at this mini-roof. It seemed like the logical way to go at the time. Looking back, I think Commencement continues straight up, but I'm not really sure.

Looking down from partway up the second pitch. I went right from the belay, then up for 30' then back left, following the easiest path. About 5.7/5.8 in here.

Adam leading the first pitch. There is one rusty bolt half way up and other small pro options. Not really "R" if you're used to easy Weeping Wall slab.

Comments: I managed to take the fall midway through the traverse...wasn't too bad. I ended up back even with the roof. It was a clean fall, no problems. I even climbed everything up to there on-sight. I really just wasn't concentrating enough on my foot placement during the traverse and lost balance. Climbed back up and finished the route.

Comments: Where on the Muir is this? I did the route this past summer and don't recall any part of the route looking like that, especially up high.

Comments: A friend of mine pulled that pin in a fall! The gear he had below it protected him well enough and kept him of the deck.

Comments: We did this one without knowing the rating. I thought it was 5.10 material between the first two bolts. The movement was awkward, but the feet were very positive. Maybe that's why it's given 5.8? Felt about as hard as they crux on Loose Lady. Worthwhile route.

Comments: Interesting position, but not a great route. The first pitch has an old rusty bolt about half way up, and there are a few options for gear. The second pitch route was non-distinct. There were numerous ways one could go. I think I found my way over to Continuation for the top out. Nothing really felt 5.9 for me, but I was likely off route due to following the path of least resistance. Pro was tricky at times. No gear bigger than 1" cam needed.

Comments: I thought this was a full-value 5.9 for Idyllwild. Route-finding was a challenge on every pitch. Every pitch until you get over the roof a few hundred feet up was challenging and probably 5.9. There were frequent "better not fall" areas on every pitch, but nothing too crazy. Overall, I enjoyed the route and would recommend it. Make sure you're solid on 5.9 and be prepared to take your time finding the best route up, because there are often many good looking options that may or may not work out w... more >>

Comments: A good lead for the budding climber. Fun finger locks with reasonable protection. Very short by Idyllwild standards.
