Comments: Great route. Rack was good with a single .3-.5, doubled up in .75 to 3, lots of draws to clip bolts and gear.

Generally only got lost once while on the variation to the 5th pitch. Easy 5th gets you back to the belay.

Comments: I changed the PG13 rating to nothing as isn't really relevant. General yam rules apply, if this gets a PG13 then so should Kahl or Directissima. In fact i felt pretty safe with most of the climbing.

This is a good route. very good if you only count the third pitch and most of the second pitch.

Rack: bring big chocks, .3-.5 single and then .75-3 double with up to #5 if you are confident with leading wide. Third and second pitch are wide but protectable.

Comments: Was on it today. Great fun and enjoyable. The first half, however, is marred by occasional choss and 3rd/4th class moves.

HOWEVER, for the grade, the second half is worth doing.

Comments: compare this to excavation at the minimum and you don't really have a comparison on quality and grade. I didn't really like many lines at Pipeline and this may be the 'best' one.

Both excavation and angry inch are "classic 11c" climbs but the minimum is good climbing and this climb seems to be like you did a crux and clip the chains as it's over in a minute. I agree with 60 ft being generous and it being about 45 ft. Otherwise you have a really tall and somewhat consistant V0/V1. If you can ov... more >>

Comments: A couple of forgetful Canadians here: we may have forgot a pair of black yoga pants at the last site before the end of OK corral. If you find them and would not mind mailing them to a US or Canadian address we will pay shipping. We are already in Jackson and cannot turn back really due to time constraints. If it has been eaten by a bear already I hope the bear enjoys it.

Comments: Things that we are learning from ten sleep:

1. we wish we knew the order of the cliffs at Valhalla, FCR and Mondo (umbrella areas that are not well sorted on MP). This could be done in MP which would be great for visiting climbers. Obviously the new book will solve this issue. Or if MP sorts the crags better.

Slavery approach obviously leads to slavery wall and near is left towards world domination/Antarctica/metropolis and right towards dreamland/chaos.

Gate approach goes to FCR and Valhall... more >>
