Comments: Bring:

- Lots of slings
- As many #2 and #3 as you want to carry
- used a couple #1 and could've used a #4 or #5

Comments: I saw a guy send this but he slapped one left move on the arete. Truly a short problem and sick send but is any part of the arete on? it was around 3/4 up the problem.

Comments: When I die, I'd prefer it be at the base of this .11b that Johnny Copp put up in 1996 (?) Beautiful

Comments: Skinny Len has 5 bolts - don't fall clipping #3
And I'm pretty sure that 3rd route has 4

Comments: Btw, someone told me if you start in the V3 dihedral and went straight up over the roof that it was a V6. I tried this and found it well, for me at least, impossible. Maybe you guys will have better luck than I did! :)

Feel free to add pictures, change route gradings, and which line each route correctly follows to keep things accurate for y'all and future boulderers! Peace!

Comments: The north slab could be V3 but it felt like a V1 to me. This was my warm up climb so it's very possible that the muscle memory I built up made me expend much less energy. The crux of those two V3's on the west face are low, like below the halfway mark. If I remember right, the problem next to Tiptoe traverses left to a large awkward pinch, while the problem left of the that lets up quickly at the rail.

I was thinking and here's probably the problem: All the routes are insanely slick. So ev... more >>

Comments: Very technical route but the holds are there and it's very sendable once you dial the sequence. There definitely are a variety of sequences for this climb which makes it fun to do laps on. Some of the key holds, at least for me, are like holding onto Skittles!! I plan on building some better anchors around the tree very soon (there were no anchors when I did this route). A must do route in Ferguson!!

Comments: Cool climb but I feel like the rating is way off. I feel like I have fought harder on .10b's than this climb. The crux feels like it is at the lower section for sure (first 3 bolts) then a no hands rest (or just sit down and shake out) before the super insanely juggy sharper upper section. Good for the ego but soft for the grade!

Comments: Probably the sickest and most beautiful 5.10- that I have ever climbed. Very well protected although one of the bolts is a spinner. Awesome!! Easy onsight!!

Comments: This is a sick climb that I felt was .10a because it felt easier than Tribal Bounderies. Tony Calderone gave this an X rating? What a dumbass! This is not X, nor is it R, hell it ain't even pg-13!!. I only used three cams on this one and they were all bomber placements! Three C4s: #.3 (blue), #.4 (grey), then a bolt, then another #.4 (grey), followed by 2 other bolts. Well protected and an easy onsight!!

Comments: Sick line up the left arete! Hopefully it'll clean up a lot with more traffic. The crux felt like the last 3 bolts of the route. Below that section is a no hands rest!!

Comments: Thanks guys for bolting this awesome line!

  • Pitch 1: 5.10c starting move or two followed by 5.8ish climbing
  • Pitch 2: 5.10d pretty sick but short n soft for the grade.
  • Pitch 3: 5.7 straight forward climbing gets you on top of lower pillar
  • Pitch 4: 5.11a that felt pretty soft for a .10d/.11a SICK route!

Also did Godzirra after rapping down the side of the arete - it felt soft for a .11b but nice exposure and definitely a classic! The only downside to the final pitch is the abundance of l... more >>

Comments: Felt like this was a solid .11a. Follows this black streak up the gently overhung face. Sustained and technical..well for a Maple Canyon 5.11a at least. Probably would be a good warm-up route for the other climbs at the Pipeline. Cool route!

Comments:
  • Definitely WAY easier than a .12a (Def no V4 moves anywhere)
  • Felt like it was over-bolted
  • The cobbles are solid
  • Maybe if you are really really really short this is a .12a?
  • Definitely worth doing if you're in the area!!

Comments: It's just a highball V1. Sit start didn't add difficulty. Did laps on this one. Forget about the rating and just have fun on this one!!

Comments: The holds are there - pockets and awesome crimps - but a very solid .10d all the way. Just wish that they didn't share the same anchors as the .10a to the right.

Comments: Holds are slightly less obvious than Black Monday. Warmed up on Black Monday and then jumped on this and it felt slightly easier. It's a pretty cool route I think!

Comments: The start was the hardest part for me and the rest was just endurance. If you screw up the start at the first bolt then it's gonna hurt.

Comments: This offwidth is all Big Bro territory. I did not find any anchors or chains at the top; rather I down climbed the south face, which is pretty easy. Skip this offwidth unless you just bought a bunch of Big Bros and don't want to go very far just to test them out.

Comments: "Perfect Rock! Perfect Holds! It's the best 5.8 in the canyon. I should have drilled this route 20 years ago!" - Jason Stevens.


"Decent Rock! Decent Holds! It's the most overrated 5.8 in the canyon and The Redemption Of Madonna is 100X better! You should never have drilled this route. Not 20 years ago! Never!!" - Skat B (and 15+ others who were at the Schoolroom on June 1st)
