Comments: Second time up so I tried the 10c variation on p4 and it was really good. The final 10a finger section looked dirty so at that pointed you can also stem back to the regular route. Perfect hand jams on slight overhang. Really fun.

Comments: I tried the Werner's Ant Trees alternate start this time and it caused some problems. The 10a lieback is awesome but then at the roof I couldn't figure out the 10c move so after about 10 min I tried the more obvious 10d way, got pumped and went for a ride on a purple tcu behind that scary thin flake. Any one remember beta for either the 10c or d section?

Comments: Climbed on Sat 9-17-11 and the first 3-4 pitches had some water in the cracks from the week of rain we just got. Wouldn't be bad but it was freezing cold and we didn't see the sun till about pitch 8. Luckily we were the first on it at about 7am. At one point I counted 13 people below us. I won't be doing this route again till it warms up.

Comments: 1st pitch was amazing. I did the awkward 5.9 variation to start it. I felt the entire route had a off width feel to it and worked my partner and I. I'd rate everything at the books much higher if it were cleaner and didn't have ants on about every pitch.

Comments: I thought that we were jumping on the caverns and didn't realize what we were doing until the chim section of P2. Besides the dirt and leaves on P1 and loose blocks all over P4 I would rate this much higher. The lie back to finish 1 and all of 2 and 3 are great. Oh and move quickly to not get swarmed by ants.

Comments: Nice crimps all the way through the 10 section. I would bring 3 blue mastercams if I had it over. I stopped at the 6th (I think) bolt and did a almost 90 degree turn to the lie back tree, does this climb have its own anchor up higher?

Comments: 1st go plugged an orange tcu and slipped and pulled it for a ground fall. Second go it went free. I agree that you shouldn't add a pg 13 for a slippery start. It's a valley 9 for a reason. I climbed it as a straight in crack and felt that was easier for placing pro.

Comments: Great route, definitely some loose rock throughout. As of 5-14-11 all belays have at least one new bolt if not more.
