Comments: This route is pretty crappy. Pretty long bushwhack for one good pitch. I guess if you've done everything else?

Comments: Good route, I've done it 2 years in a row with Chris Erickson. Anchors all still bomber. Last pitch will probably need bolt or drilled angle placed, since we blew out a crucial "fixed" piece. Wouldn't want to go without a couple beaks and LAs either. You will not wait in line for this route!

Comments: Not allowed to solo aid in the park, I was sent away by the local "authority". This particular route now has some type of pigeon closure for over half the year.

Comments: Aren't all these modernities such as nylon and sticky rubber stripping the adventure out of climbing? I only climb routes in true adventure style: hemp rope, iron mongery, and leather soles. Man up people, you call yourselves climbers!!! Driving to the trailhead, Give me a break! A real man takes a wagon trail from St. Louis with 9 kids in tow and establishes everything ground up on horseback, now that's a clean ascent! Dried buffalo bladders filled with sand and placed in small depressions in t... more >>

Comments: The route photo with the red line marking the route doesn't seem to match the route photos. I climbed a route with Chris Erickson matching the line in the photo and it consisted of two pitches in the M4+ range. It pretty much eliminated the snow pitch by climbing a long (65 meter) mostly offwidth pitch to the right of it. Recommended and no piece of cake, be ready to haul packs. The regular line is the deep inset further left.
