Comments: There is a really good ledge for his left foot that he is missing. Basically reach up with your left hand over the flake and use your left foot on the ledge. It is 5.8 if you do it this way. If you don't, then it requires some grunt work.

Comments: P1 - sustained 5.9 up the wide crack. You can stay on the outside for some of it but it does require some mandatory offwidthy skills higher up to gain the belay ledge.

P2 - Stay left for the direct variation. Sustained 5.8 hand cracks. mmmmm.......hand crack!

P3 - 15 feet of 5.10- right off the belay to gain the ridge then run it out on 5.easy as far as you can. Nice views!

P4 - 3rd class to 5.easy. Wind your way up and left around a pillar up into a corner. Many options here.

P5 - Many op... more >>

Comments: Do yourself a favor and leave the haul bag at home. If this is your first wall just practice up so that you can move efficiently through C1 (be comfortable leap frogging pieces and you will should be OK). C1 comprises about half the route and the rest you can free.

Comments: Use a 70m rope to make this go fast. Solo up to the 5.8 bulge like others say and pitch one will be from there up to the start of the dihedral. Looking at ST, pitches 4 and 5 can be linked. Then just run the rope out to a full 70m for the next two pitches and belay where you feel comfortable. Given the blocky/ledgy terrain above the dihedral it is easy to build belays anywhere. Instead of going all the way to the top like most people do, you can traverse left just under the headwall/ridgeline fo... more >>

Comments: Didn't seem to need many stoppers on this thing. Used RP's a couple times though. Between the two of us I think we each did two hook moves on cliffhangers. No need for beaks. All the fixed heads were bomber.

Comments: Climbed this with a 60m and when looking at the supertopo topo linked pitches 2+3, 6+7 (I don't think the lengths mentioned are correct), 9+10, 12+13. In order to link 6+7 go up from Pitch 4 anchor (bolted) to the big ledge and then move left 50 feet and up into the gully and go up the easy blocky terrain to where the real climbing starts and make your anchor there. There is no need to make an intermediate anchor (or even place pro) if you are pitching this out which makes this pitch super fast.... more >>

Comments: If you blow it just before clipping the second bolt you will deck. Cruxy up top after the 6th bolt. Great climb!

Comments: Good climb. A couple of committing moves up high but well bolted so go for it.

Comments: Start off under the small roof (directly in line with the bolts) and pull it instead of starting to the right. Adds some spice to the climb! Crux is higher up where it gets thin like the rest of the climbs on this wall.

Comments: I thought it only felt 5.8 on the last move to the anchor. I didn't notice any loose rock but maybe I missed it.

Comments: The 5.10 climbing is in the middle thin section. A couple of delicate moves in a row and the rest is easier. As of 4/24/16 the lower section needs some big time cleaning. Very mossy and mungey. The route is cleaner above that.

Comments: Sick route! If you are in the area I'd say it is a must do. Pretty wild start (it's easier than it looks though) with one crux after the fourth bolt and another crux at the top reaching the anchor. Did it on 4/24 so I must be a Johny-Come-Lately.

Comments: I climbed strait up the prow to the small mostly dead tree halfway up. I don't think this is the proper route. All the large blocks above the tree are WAY loose. Avoid going directly up past this small tree! Also the climbing strait up the prow was just plain lame. The route proper is either just left or right of the prow?

Comments: When I climbed this flow the crux was getting from the lower slabby section onto the curtain. There was no ice in between those two parts so it made the curtain bulge out and slightly overhanging with almost no foot placements. After that it is just strait up sustained to the anchor.

Comments: Jeremy Jones is the shit. Those Jones boys are doing descents in the Himalaya now.

Big mountain skiers intentionally do spines like these all the time.

Comments: I thought I had average size hands/fingers for a dude but that upper finger crack was like off-fingers for me. I was finger stacking and had problems staying in.

Comments: Really good hand jams except for the weird pod. The whole climb protects well in the hand size but you can use a #3/#4 in the pod to protect and step left onto a shelf outside of it. Getting back into the hand crack above wasn't hard for me (I'm 5' 11'') but it was very difficult for my partner (she is 5' 2''). The whole climb is short sustained 5.10b sections with good rests in between all the way up. This is obvious from the ground.

Comments: Yup, crux is the first 25 feet. If you got the huevos just run it out and cruz right up to a nice ledge rest stop to plug in pro. After that the route is cake. Just don't strain too much pulling that lay-back and end up farting on your belayer like I did.
