Comments: Good idea Greg. I added Bacon Strip. Not sure where the anchors are, but this should get folks close. Let me know if it needs edits.

Comments: XM direct is a new 40m, 12 bolt route to access the big ledge for XM arĂȘte or Clowns and Jokers. Around the corner right towards Do It For Doug a bit down the hill. 5.10/10+ crux comes at mid way. Continue up XM or walk down the ledge system to use the standard rap anchor for the original start.

Comments: There is a 5.8 (crux at bolts 1 - 2) warm up around the corner to the right of this climb (The Duke's White Heel - named after a ski binding found near the top of the route). It was put in last winter/spring. Be careful it is still pretty fresh and a wee bit loose. You can set up a TR on Amada's Route from the anchor of TDWH. You can walk to the top and access this anchor too! The carabiners on the anchor will some day become chains. please leave them there.

Wear a helmet and enjoy.

Comments: There is a new guidebook that just went to press from Aaron Gams. It looks awesome and has 80 something routes, 14 of them new routes. Should be out mid May.

Comments: Jorge,

In Renny's book there is a description for Staircase Arete. Looks like a fun route. It goes at 5.6 and is right of the south buttress wall.

Nice work, any old photos?

Comments: Rumor has it some bolts just got added to this area! Anyone have any idea which routes got bolted. When I climbed here years ago Ken Nichols was always there too and those bolts wouldn't have lasted long.

Comments: Sounds like the top of pitch one can be confusing for some folks. Don't get suckered over to Grand Central on the right. After the piton towards the top of P1, head up and left to a bolt and a small bulge. Belay at a small ledge with bolts and chain/ biners. From the belay you will see a bolt not too far to the right, heading into a gray dihedral, that is pitch two. You can see the pitch two dihedral from the ground, scope it out before heading up. Awesome route!!

Comments: A fun TR variation to this one is straight up the face. The line in the shadow of the tree in this photo, mountainproject.com/images/39/... A short traverse left to get the block hold was the crux. This start gives the route a more sustained feeling, meeting up in the big horizontal part, before the second crux.

Comments: Sweet climb! Well worth doing even with the bushes in the crack. Great variety of moves. The rock is just a bit dirty but with some traffic would be stellar. As for the sketchy block at the top, we traversed around the left side and rapped off bolts on some 5.6 on the east side.
