Comments: It would be nice to have a set of chain anchors at the top of this buttress... time for a discussion? ..fixed anchors would allow parties to come up here and do all these pitches (well, maybe not Mens Rea!) quickly and rappel safely, as opposed to topping out, tearing down the gear anchor and having to solo the upper step to get off the formation. The day bozeman beautiful was put up i was forced to on sight solo the last step (5.5) in fading light...a heady move that is avoidable.

Comments: I'd expect a pretty big sandbag due to the era it was done and who put up the route.

Comments: maybe i have this one wired, but all the locks feel pretty positive for me...10b seems reasonable considering the nature of climbing and grades in the canyon. the description abobve may be a little intimidating, as the gear is readilly available and bomber...not all that heady.

Comments: looks cool...although pulling with care is in direct opposition to my hamster style, which calls for indiscriminate yarding with maximum crushing force! exploding holds mid route only adds to my experience...

Comments: after the first pitch, continue up generation x (5.9 pg-13) and the 5.9 alt finish of the tower for a sweet 5.9 linkup. Also, the new bolts up there are in a poor spot. There are hairline cracks all around where the bolts were placed. More than one of my friends has gotten up there and felt they are sketchy. A rearrangement of these anchor bolts may be in order...

Comments: i found the face climbing crux to be relatively positive...you are not forced to mantle if you hit the crimps right. getting to the first jug was harder for me.

Comments: ya, adventurish for sure, but i recall some pretty obvious and secure climbing, until that headwall splitter petered out for some reachy moves high above a purple C3. I believe that the headwall pitch was the physical and psychological crux, and the chimney below it was easier, not 9+...
