Comments: Very good route indeed and a great way to finish Maiden Voyage. The runout on P1 is not too bad, and the gear is good protecting the crux.

HELP! I think I left my camera somewhere just to climber's left of the topout. It's a Panasonic point and shoot in a red case, and I would be hugely grateful if someone could return it. Thanks!

Comments: Phil Berggren and I did this route yesterday (my third time up) and have a few comments to add:

On pitch 5, we were confused by a bolt above and well right of the belay (above the death blocks that lead to another ledge above the belay), which seemed to lead nowhere. Instead, we finally located a pin, then a bolt, then another pin on a line about 30 feet to the left, and just slightly R of the belay, and this seemed good.

We combined pitches 2 and 3, and 9 and 10, so that the leader would be ... more >>

Comments: We made one day trip to the area from the Western slope...great stuff!

Can anyone suggest camping options nearby? We hope to go this weekend (August 4, 2012). I contacted the Forest Service office, and apparently the Mizpah Campground is still closed.

Thanks in advance,

Comments: Climbed this last weekend with Dave Meyer. A very good route with good pro the whole way...3 stars, in my opinion. Did not need RPs or a #3.5 or 4 Camalot. I think the best rappel is far to climber's left from the summit, down the ridge. It's an easy 4th class downclimb of about 20-30 meters to good anchors that drops you right at the base of the exit gully. A 60 meter rope was fine.

Comments: I lost/left my camera on a ledge at the top of the third pitch of Black Orpheus on April 19, 2011. I feel like an idiot! It should have been in plain view, and if anyone picked it up I would really appreciate getting it back...reward, plus tons of good karma points!

Thanks,

Comments: Can anyone tell me if there are any decent car camping spots along the road to Sister Superior, or are people camping at the main spot for Castleton?

Thanks,

Comments: This is a great route, and definitely deserves 3 stars. It is already pretty clean (compared to Mud Flap Girl), with good bolts and plenty of them on the 1st and 2nd pitches, comfy belay stances, and great climbing. It's easy to pull through the 5.11 crux on pitch 2 if needed. The 3rd pitch is all gear. We had doubles from a #2 (yellow) BD C3 to a #2 (gold) BD C4, and I used most of them. We forgot to take a #3 (blue) BD C4, and although there were places for it, I never r... more >>
