Location: TX : Enchanted Rock State Natura... : Main Dome : Devil's Slide : Easier Than It Looks (5.5)
By: Stan Jones When: Jan 26, 2014

Comments: The route description states that it is 140 feet from the P1 anchors to the ground, so it should not be a surprise that you can't do it with a single 60m rope. Someone commented that they were barely able to reach the ledge to the SIDE of the route near where it starts with a 60m, but that was probably with a lot of stretch. Rapping with gravity does not take you back to the start. Take two ropes for a standard rap to the ground, and by the way that will work from the P2 anchors as it says in... more >>

Comments: Added a rap station at the top of pitch 3. If you climb the crawl ramp up and right from the big ledge (labeled class 4 in "Oklahoma Select") then climb the left-hand wide crack from the next big ledge, the new rap station is at the top around a boulder. A rap with a 50m rope will get you close to the lower rap station mentioned in other comments.

Comments: When I pulled the ropes, the ends of the second 60m met about 30 feet above my head, so the rap must be about 130 feet.

Comments: Another good place for P1 belay is about 25 ft above the first turn. That keeps you from having huge rope drag at the crux. You can deal with the rope drag on the easier climbing above the second turn.

Comments: We added some static cord to the in-place rap ring on the lower ledge that you can scramble down to (from P2). Just bring a piece of cord or webbing to back this up and it's a short rap.

Comments: For posterity - Ancient Art is the centerpiece of a CitiBank commercial that has been airing in Nov-Dec 2011.

Comments: If you traverse right after the P1 belay and go up the face/shallow gully, the climbing is easy with great exposure.

Comments: If you traverse to the Texas Flakes anchors, you'll need several directionals to keep the rope out of the cacti.

Comments: After you pull the overlap, look left for the next two Hartford bolts. The Dome Driver bolt is more obvious, but it's to the right.

Hartford shares the P2 Anchor with Boston.

2 Ropes for P2 Rap (approx. 130 ft). 1 60m rope for P1 Rap.

Comments: There is a perfect pink tricam placement in the first pocket on the face below the overlap.

The most obvious hold on the right side of the notch cracked when I pulled on it and seems loose. Use caution.

When we pulled the rope from the P2 anchor, it stuck at the top of the flake and required a reclimb/down-climb. This can be avoided by traversing to the Kracken anchors before rapping or rapping to Hartford P1.

Comments: Take a BD #3 to put behind the Boot flake before the traverse to the pin. The pin is at the bottom of the crack across from the upper part of the flake. Otherwise all medium to small stuff. A 60m rope will easily reach either the shelf or the ground to the west from the anchors for a rappel, contrary to the route description.

Comments: We followed the Rossiter topo and used the belay stations he describes for Left Standard, and it seems to be a different route than the one described here. However, we disagree with some of Rossiter's ratings. Here are the rope lengths and ratings we saw:
P1 - 55m 5.6
P2 - 50m 5.3
P3 - 60m 5.6 crack and a lot of 5.4 runout
P4 - 55m 4th class to 5.0
P5 - 20m a single 5.5 move at the short headwall
Note: there was a very loose rock of more than 100 lbs at the 2nd belay station tetering on the br... more >>

Comments: Expect a slight downclimb after passing the arete in the middle.


Location: OK : Wichita Wildlife Refuge : The Narrows : Zoo Wall : The Dihedral (5.6)
By: Stan Jones When: Jun 1, 2010

Comments: Felt like 5.7 to me. Similar difficulty to Yellow Corner, and harder than the other 5.6's in the Narrows due to being off-width and slick.

Comments: To me, getting off the ground was tricky but not hard. The cruxes were the offwidth just below the ledge in the middle of the route and the slightly overhanging move a bit above the ledge. I also agree with the 5.7 rating.

Comments: I recommend putting a #4 Camalot or a Large Supercam under the overlap at the top of the beginning slab. Then you can more comfortably fiddle with a nut in the crack above the inverted V in the first overlap. Definitely a mini-crux stepping up on that first overlap.

Comments: The line of bolts to the right of the Boston notch in the overlap on P1 is a route called "The Kracken" that shares the P1 anchors. The bolts on the face above the P1 anchors to the left of the Boston flake is the P2 continuation of "The Kracken". Kracken ends up at anchors between Dome Driver and Boston.

Comments: If you climb this on the original line, which is staying on the dihedral and not traversing right into the chimney, you'll have great pro the whole way. Big cams up high (#3 to #5).

Comments: Climbed this on a 50m rope and just barely had enough to reach the P1 belay station. The rap off P1 is about 150 ft, so two 50's are fine. If you rap off P2, don't even consider trying to reach the middle belay station on the Water Streak wall with a single 60m - you'll come up about 10 ft short.

Comments: There are no bolts at the top of P3. See the description of Easier Than It Looks - it shares P2 and P3 with HTIL.

Comments: Actually the first bolt is above the overlap, but it can be reached from a stance below the overlap (unless you're really short).

Comments: I prefer to access this tower via the 5.5 climb on the Lake end of the canyon between the two towers. It's only about 20 feet before you're on a ledge with an easy scramble. And no depending on a tree!

Comments: The crack widens, so take large gear (at least #3 Camalot). Lots of good stances make it a good novice leader climb.
