Comments: Locker,
Wow, a blast from the past.
I just think there are better 5.2 cracks around. I agree with you though, you can sew this thing up.

Comments: First time I led this, I didn't use a stick clip. I led again this past weekend, and had no problems using the stick clip. I can't afford any more injuries.

Comments: "Do you know what the route immediately behind this one (on the other face of the slot) is called? It's technically on a different formation, but can't figure out what the formation or climb is called. Seemed to be in the 5.10 range."

Was wondering about this myself. Crux looks to be at the bottom. steep, jug feast, but don't think it's a ten.

Comments: with all due respect to Brutus, this climb is not 5.7. the friction is good, but somewhat friable is places.

Comments: I agree, a little stiff for a nine.
a bit crumbly, and may get harder if the few key holds break off.

Comments: followed Tony Yeary up this route(thanks Tony).
start is intimidating, but not hard.
crux for me is the leftward traverse move off the flake,
did not think it's 10a, 5.9+

Comments: I've climbed this route three times, and have led it twice. the most recent was on November 18th. It was hot and greasy. I believe under those conditions the route is 5.7+

Comments: I've climbed this route three or four times. the route is more fun if you avoid the starting crack. It is a bit runout, but no harder than 5.9 imo
