Comments: I hopped on some climb, rated 10a in the book, to the left of peaches. Had a bulgy start, then a scramble to a tree. Forgot what it was called, but it was not 10a in the slightest. Easy 5.8 or so. Had a fun start and an anchor at the top.

Comments: Beer prize to anyone who finds my orange soft shell at the base! It's pretty tattered, I'll cover shipping as well as an alcohol based finders fee. Also, that sling on the butter knife is from this weekend, super solid.

Comments: Is it just me, or is the first pitch of this thing nerve wracking? ooof.

Comments: Such a wicked good route! I would highly suggest following the crack to the right most anchors. It's the natural line, it makes for a much better climb!

If you don't climb this route, you hate America...and your mom. climb this route.

Comments: This rock is insanely good! It bites so hard your belayer will feel it! I highly suggest starting in the slanting crack down the hill. It's splitter, the same grade and a more direct line. Super fun route!

Comments: I agree, felt harder than straight and narrow. Be prepared for typical shortoff headgames, gear puzzles and sandbagging!

Comments: This climb is fantastic! I would go as far as to call it a classic! If for nothing else, do it for the worm hole!

Comments: Death block is gone! I trundled it off today. there was less than a 1/2 in. of duff. Yikes! Also rapped off of the fixed gear, if you are questioning the sturdiness of them.

Comments: Once at the bolt, cut right. Don't follow the natural line straight up. I had to bail and leave a tricam in a sea of lichen. The topo in the book is very misleading.

Comments: If you are a beginner leader, give this one a shot. A well protected, fun climb, with such a view!
