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.

Comments: Fun climbing because of the variation. More so than Lean and Mean IMO which is more just friction climbing.

Comments: Bring small-medium stoppers to protect the middle crux section. I didn't cuz I was dumb enough to think it would take micro cams just fine.......wrong! I had to run that shit out and was wishing I brought the stoppers. It is sustained which makes the 5.9 rating more of a 5.9+ (whatever that is) or 5.10a.

Comments: No need for any big gear to the bolted anchor. The upper "finger crack" wasn't much of a finger crack for me. Too small to get my fingers in. More like a seem that takes small-medium stoppers for pro.

Comments: I coulda swore that WHOLE flake system moved as I was lay-backing up that thing midway. Be careful. Otherwise fun climbing.
