Comments: P1 is solid 5.11 and comparable in difficulty to anything else on the first 7 pitches. P4 is a bit heads up off the pillar. The p7 move to the belay is awesome, don't think just jump! p8 is nails hard, much harder than anything else on the route. No need to bring double #3, even a single #3 isn't really even necessary. Triple up on green and yellow Alien. Great route!

Comments: Pitches 1-7 are very heads up. Beware of pitch four, the topo is misleading, there are at least three different options that are not obvious on the topo.

P4 Option 1 is to go straight up the crack and continue up the lichen face above (and left of) the bolt, into flakes and eventually the corner above. Reportedly heads up but not as sketchy as option 2.

P4 Option 2, clip the bolt and traverse right, this looks sketchy as fuck, I started this way then backed off.

P4 Option 3, after the litt... more >>

Comments: February 2016 condition report:
P1: Soaking, but easy enough to pull through on gear.

P2-3: The ledge off the belay was wet making the traverse harder, linked with P3 (70m rope) which was an amazing and dry pitch. Turning the arete was awesome as were the splitter hand cracks. Both pitches felt about 10b (except the 5.11 traverse).

P4-5: More amazing splitter cracks, mostly hands. Awesome corner. Annoying but fun tree hopping at top of P5. Linking is the way to go (70m rope). 10b

P6-7: A sh... more >>

Comments: 10m pitches, over bolted and contrived. This route is an abomination. The compressor route of Yosemite. We did it in 3 pitches.

Comments: Start the route with an unprotected face traverse on knobs from left to right (5.8/9). Turn the corner to a chimney and a fist crack. This section protects with a #4 BD and a #3 BD on a double-shoulder length runner.

Turn back around the corner and move onto a perch and the start of the finger crack. Unclip the big cams to prevent rope drag and place a few pieces in the crack so you are safe. The finger crack eats up yellow alien and green alien sized cams. I brought 4x yellow size... more >>

Comments: Vlad, regardless of which way you go at the start (chimney or arete), move back out to the arete above the second bolt and stem your way until you can move into a lieback off the edge of the left side of the chimney. Bust a few moves, clip a bolt then reach out to the good vertical edge under the roof with your left hand. Clip another bolt, move the feet, undercling, clip, another undercling, high right foot, left heel up over the roof, grab the jugs. Done!

You don't even have to do it now! Rea... more >>
