Comments: Beautiful exciting climbing on great rock (pitch 4 excepted). Due to complex gear and moves every pitch took some time to lead safely. I thought the first pitch required some very interesting zig-zagging and gear placements to stay "safe." Pitch 2 had a very stout transition into the corner - probably better to get gear high, climb down a bit and do the transition then climb up past your overhead gear on tips lieoffs. Pitch 3 is exciting and again thoughtful and pitch 5 is straight on steep crac... more >>

Comments: Best route on the wall by far. Great pro, cool moves, if you miss the key toe hold it is 10a lockoff near the top, otherwise probably a little easier.

Comments: This is a nice area that gets sun by 9 am in the winter. Good for warming up and getting used to red rock style climbing. All the routes are very generic without any particular memorable moves that will stick with you and differentiate the routes in your mind, but still a good area to get outside and get used to the rock. Approach is a cruise right up the gully past Sweet pain wall - maybe 15 minutes.

Comments: There seems to be 3 bolts with chains 30 feet up - either this route is now bolted or a newer short route has been established.

Comments: More thoughtful moves required. Best route of the wall in this general grade.

Comments: Worth doing if you are climbing here. I thought the rock quality was pretty good, moves pretty cruise for the grade.

Comments: kind of a 1 move wonder at the start on not great rock, then a soft rock thin section and a bit of 5.8 climbing. OK if you just need a final route in the sun.

Comments: A beautiful line - Classic crack climbing - too bad it is so short. Honestly I think the crux is the start, not the upper crack but everything is hand size dependent as I could hang off killer jams at the top and the feet were great. Be sure to have a variety of cams - micro cams at the start, medium small up 15 feet and 2.5 - 3 inch up high (1 or 2 yellow camalots and 1 or 2 blue camalots). You won't need any wires. You can walk 15 feet back from the top and toss your rope under a huge bolder... more >>

Comments: Another nice warmup line that won't get you as pumped as the routes just to the left of it.

Comments: Beautiful position up a dead vertical plated wall. Once it cleans up it will be even better. Be sure the belayer is wearing a helmet and has some mobility at the belay as there are still a number of loose flakes.

Comments: A nice warm up but nothing memorable. If you don't like the spacing between the bolts up high, there is a crack that will take medium gear.

Comments: Spectacular line with a very fun monkey move up the steepest section of the arete. Immediately to the right of this route is another very fine line at about 5.10d that needs a few more ascents to clean up the lichen.

Comments: A bit odd, ledgy. I would look for steeper terrain where the falls are safer.

Comments: A hard move at the bottom - actually quite hard - but the rest was kind of easy and not particularily interesting. Do the routes nearby - they are steeper and better.

Comments: A comment to assist with locating this area for those from out of town: The turn off of Hwy 18 on Pine Valley highway is past Veyo. After turning off of Hwy 18 I went 5.6 miles (on my odometer) to the post and cairned trail - if you go to far you pass a white railing on the right side of the road and you can see the rocks down below. There is a turn around point 6.0 miles with a large Pine Valley sign.

This area is higher altitude - snow on the ground up top and can feel bitter, but much of the... more >>

Comments: Kris Barta, a friend, took the picture. I was taking them up an "easy route" based on a faulty memory from the first ascent.

Comments: I can't remember where the rest is - I do not think it is that flake. There is some tricky knee lock near the top. However, 17 years ago I tried to remove that flake with a car jack because I thought it was dangerous also - and it was SOLID then - it did not budge. Not sure if the ensuring years have loosened it much but you don't need it anyhow.

Comments: A very nice introduction route to the mountain that essentially climbs the same terrain as you rappel. Nothing to hard, great gear, a perfect route for someone looking for a short, safe (can rappel at any pitch)traditional line in the mountains with a spectacular summit.
