Comments: Best route on this wall or the adjacent wall behind it. Some cool moves and some cool gear.

Comments: Probably the best on the this side of the wall and worth doing if you are in the area (across the way at the Sailor wall is better). We easily combined the first two pitches - you might want a single big wire to protect this second pitch after you step up above the belay. the final pitch has a short cool mantle sequence and then is easy.

Comments: Unlike others I was pretty underwhelmed by this route. Kind of generic bolt clipping on all the routes on this entire wall - nothing much different for the various routes other than the grade - Reach up, step up, clip, repeat. There is a single short section at the very end that was interesting.

Comments: Amazing not to be missed route. Be sure to have your thin edging skills intact. The start takes a #4 camalot followed by a bolt followed by a medium cam in the 1-2 inch range (a nest of cams is possible in the undercling crack). After a few more moves it gets very thin and balancy. A 70 meter rope makes it to the ground exactly with stretch.

Comments: This route is spectacular. Among the best crack climbs in the park at this grade - on par with Thin Slice in terms of quality and difficulty. It is quite intimidating from the base but goes at an easier effort that you suspect. It climbs like a sport climb with crack protection (except the initial short section of hand crack). A 60 meter rope off the belay to the left is adequate. The climb directly to the right, however, needs a 70 meter rope to return to the ground.

Comments: A big hold that was present in the late 1980s near the start is now missing making the start very hard - much harder now than 20 years ago.

Comments: Stunning route - great variety of techniques used. Seems like there is no gear from below but after every cruxy sequence there is bomber gear, wires, cams. Bring brass for the upper crux thin crack.

Comments: A half inch cam after the second bolt (grey camalot) makes the bottom safer and a 1.5 inch cam at the top (green or red camalot) makes the top safer. Niether is neccesary since these are easy moves, but having done it both ways I prefer these two pieces of gear. to keep any drag down, put a long sling on the last bolt due to it being a bit off line to the left.

Comments: "R" rating? Huh? It is a sport climb with plenty of bolts. Great climb with standard sport bolt protection and nothing R about it. I suspect an "R" rating will scare people off but no need for that here.

Comments: Great natural line with good gear. Not sustained but quite fun. Definately worth ding if you are in the area and have a rack.

Comments: After the first clip (boulder up to get that bolt) the gear is bomber. It sucks up small cams and wires if you are strong enough to hang out and place them. For a weakling like me - I have to punch it a ways between placements for any hope of a redpoint. What a fantastic line - as good as it gets.

Comments: Burly. Tape up for the crux and don't forget heel hooks, breathing (or you will get very winded) and all kinds of crazy body contortions.

Comments: I think the current grade is appropriate and the protection is adequate. My best recollections are from heady climbs like this that require focus and commitment. I still clearly recall the wonder at how unique the moves and gear were on this line during my ascent of this route shortly after is was established. Please leave that experience available for my kids in their future. We have plenty of generic sport climbs. I prefer keeping this route as it has been since the 1980's - a classic mixed ro... more >>

Comments: Fantastic solid 10c line not to be missed. Wear shoes that edge really well so you can stand on the tiny bumps and this will greatly assist you in the cruxes. Combination of thin edge/crimping and small finger crack cruxes all in the first 30-40 feet of the climb.

Comments: Fun and worthy pitch. Makes climbing Doggy style worth it to get up here for this pitch. A burly balancy start leads to many fun lay offs and thin moves with plenty of rests. Hope it gets a lot more traffic to clean it up. Bring a few cams for the very end - 1/2 to 1 inch will fit.

Comments: A bit loose in places so tread carefully. If you lower with a 60 meter rope - the belayer needs to hike up a bit onto the ramp. Better to just rappel - saves the rope and safer on this route.

Comments: Great line, fun moves with and neat bit right up the arete itself. If you do this jump on pitch 2. The second pitch is barely much harder and the its crux had 3 bolts in 8 feet right off the belay.

Comments: A very nice second pitch to the route that should be done since it is one of the better pitches on the wall. A rare hard move that tops out in the 5.10 range, lots of rests, plenty of bolts - just fun climbing.

Comments: An easy warm up. Another one of those 5.8/10a sport climbs that abound in the gym and sometimes outside. Worth doing, but not 5.10.

Comments: Cryptic moves on steep slopers with some slippery feet on really solid rock. One of the best sport routes on this wall - definately worth doing.

Comments: Probably about 1987-88. Old rigid stem Friends and Sportiva Mariachar shoes. I was scanning in old slides and had to put a few of the good old day shots from my favorite winter playground on the web site.

Comments: Phenomenal face sequence - one of the best slad section I have done here. You can do this in 2 pitches with a 70 meter rope - Pitch 1 plus 2 are almost exactly 70 meters.

Comments: An absolutely stunning line reminicent of the hard pitch on Levitation or Dogma - just easier. Away from the crowds,in the shade, pulling perfect crimpers on a steep wall with the need for a little gear near the top. One of my favorite plated face pitches in the park. Pitch 1 will keep down the crowds due to a 50 foot 5.5 runout. Belay on top of the pillar just left of the line - sit down belay with great gear in the crack (any cam from 1 inch to 4 inches). You can then rap down to the top of La... more >>
