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: We happened on this route after climbing Eagle's Nest. Didn't know what it was but it looked cool so we went for it. Really a cool climb! Too bad it's such a pain to get to it, otherwise it'd probably be climbed a lot more. Not knowing the grade, we thought 5.10b was fair. It's not quite as hard as Flakes of Wrath.

Comments: This low angle gully is not worth the time needed to climb it. It's currently full of broken limbs, leaves, and pine needles from a tree that fell somewhat recently. The best thing about this route is that you can set up a top rope over above Captain Hook, Passtime, and Frustration by traversing left across the ledge at the top of this route.

Comments: Just did this one after having put it off for a while. No individual move felt all that challenging to warrant the 5.9+. However, all the essential pieces of pro were very small and a few key holds were just wedged/hanging blocks. A heady lead for sure. Be solid at 5.9 before getting on this one. You can get to the first pitch belay, placing pro at every opportunity, with nothing larger than a #1 C4 and a good selection of small cams.

Comments: Led this thing recently. Kind of an interesting route. Some DFU moves getting to the first bolt, then a cruxy traverse left to the flake on Razor Games. An orange Metolius fits perfectly near the top of the flake, where the flake is most solid. You can then step up to clip a bolt on Razor Games before moving left again towards Hernia. I led it with nothing bigger than a 0.75 C4. Anything bigger would be for the Hernia part, which is trivial compared to the climbing that got you there, and can st... more >>

Comments: Never a line for this climb. I think this was my first 5.9 lead. I've done it twice and think it's a pretty interesting route. It also gives you easy access to the super-anchor on top of Captain Hook, Passtime, and Frustration.

Comments: When this route was originally done, it was only 5.6. Since then a block fell off the climb, forming the crux roof. The block that fell is still at the base of the route; you can see old pin scars on it!

Comments: The first 20 feet of this route put you on Insomnia or give you access to Hesitation. You could do the bottom as a squeeze, but it's easier and faster to stem the corner. You could try to place an offset brass to protect the moves, but it'll probably fall out when you climb past it. Better to just not mess up the moves and have a large, soft belayer to land on if you do slip.
