Comments: Gritty, probably doesn't get a lot of traffic. Avoid looking up if you're belaying, you'll likely end up with crumbly rock in your eyes. Also, first bolt is unnecessarily high given the exposed start.

Comments: The first half's "slab" is AMAZINGLY FUN if you're into super thin, techy, hard-to-read climbing. ~12a, maybe a/b, I found it harder than Tricks for You over at Superratic. If permadraws aren't up and steep 12+ isn't you're thing, the lower half is totally worth a bail biner. (The steep section is fun too, doesn't feel as crazy overhung as it looks)

Comments: Update (no spoilers though!) - while climbing this yesterday I broke the right foot feature off at the start of the crux sequence. The sequence of least resistance has changed a bit and the cool beta to do the moves most easily is now kind of irrelevant.

Update #2 - a few of the anchors have missing quicklinks or rope-tangling single biners. If rapping this consider finding a path down the climbs to climber's right instead, those anchors all looked to have rings on them.

Comments: The "large" knob hand/foot down low (glued on, makes the move onto the lower ledge easy) feels like it's about to break off. Pulled gently and it feels pretty bad, didn't pull on it anymore and didn't dare step on it. Ups the difficulty of those moves; needs a re-glue. (Dec 6 2014)

Comments: This climb is phenomenal. No moves are terribly cruxy, the real difficulty comes from the ridiculous pump. However, the cruxes do come a bit past the bolts, which are around 8 ft apart or so for most of the route. Adds some mental stimulation to the fun!

Comments: Got on this on Memorial Day, super fun route! Some holds are a little dusty.

Route is still mostly climbable and very fun! Missing a bolt that could put you into groundfall range from 30 feet up or so, with some cruxiness before it. Bring your lead head for this and a few alpines to lower the clip down for other leaders with you who might want a more reasonable clipping stance.

There's a lower-off biner before the ledge up top to lower off of, might be worth being familiar with one-bolt ... more >>

Comments: First bolt is missing a hanger. Can either stick clip it (big branch at the base if you don't have one) or just skip it, the moves to the second bolt are pretty cruiser.

Comments: Short people rejoice! If you're tall and lanky, the crux on this feels like a 12a/b.

Comments: ~16 bolts to do as one pitch, two possible first pitch starts. Right one is 10a/b and pretty crumbly. Crux is tricky to figure out but you can camp out below it and figure out what to do. Higher up it rewards flexibility with fun stemming and a sweet, super-exposed, no-hands rest.
