Comments: After a nice fall by my partner the small flake one encounters to get up to the frist bolt has gotten smaller. The route is no more difficult as the flake is only used for balance.

Comments: I ended up backing off the first time after not being sure about the moves and not wanting to land on the not so cushy slab.

Comments: Did anyone else find this harder to protect witout wondering onto throne room? I had a yellow and red c3 and those were about the only bomber pieces I could get. Although with some smaller tricams and rps I suppose it would sew up nicely. You wont need anything larger than a #2 for the climb.

Comments: Higher first bolt on a not so good hold can be mitigated with a #2 bd cam placement lower. Or a longer stick clip. Not a give me climb but worth it for the pump factor alone.

Comments: Gokul- I think you are mistaken on this. The corner to the left of the red line with the tree and bushes is Colostomy. If you climb the route with the red line you experience only 5.3 climbing.

Comments: Why would you even climb this pile. Its maybe 10-15' of exposed rock with giant bushes and trees in the way.

Comments: To protect this thing decently on lead if you are not well versed in the wide required a large rack. I used a #10 hex, a #3 and #4 Big bro and a #3 cam. But with that gear it was sewed up. Great climb. Too bad its not another 30 foot taller.

Comments: Bonus points if done as an off-chimney. Fun thrutch with bolts.

Comments: Great climb. First two bolts have good clipping stances. Great climb for hot days as it is in the shade.

Comments: Good climb for beginner leader. No need for anything bigger than a #3. Two slings and rings on the rap tree. Bring your own those two are getting tatty.

Comments: One of the best slab climbs in RR. Sustained hut doable for the grade. Either the closer anchor or the higher up one. The route is the same. Must do.

Comments: Crux is between 1st and 2nd bolt. Bring a 70m rope. Great climb for breaking into the. 10s. Very physical,

Comments: Be careful with the first two bolts. After that your good to go. Getting to the first two bolts is easier climbing but mentally tough. Amazing climb.

Comments: Feet were fine. Only problem is the shitty paint. Worth a shot if u have any crack skill. Love the rattly fingers.

Comments: Great route. With more climbing it will clean up. There is some slings and rap rings at the top but dont be fooled. Rap from Sleeper. 60M rope will not cut the mustard for the rao down. Doubles.

Comments: First pitch is an easy lead. The second pitch is amazing. An easy hand crack that swalows gear the whole time. Also plenty of good stances for putting on pro. Watch out thouhg, a 60M rope will just barely get the job done. The rap off to the right with double ropes and easy downclimbing provided to be no problem at all. A must do route

Comments: How would you possibly protect this thing? I had a 4 big bro and only could use it at the lower section. Also the anchors were in a horrible spot. Not even worth doing.

Comments: 5.10A is the only good way to climb this. Straight up the chute with no using the side. Good friction all the way. Clipping stances were good. But dont miss the 3rd bolt or you will end up in the hospital.

Comments: Some wide gear 5,6 would have better protected the chimmney on pitch 2. If you slipped your looking at hitting the cave floor. But more heady than difficult.

Comments: Be careful on lead. The lower section has a decent runout when rounding the corner. The rest can be sewn up using small nuts or mirco cams. Overall great climb.

Comments: Off width section is tons of fun. A nuber 11 hex sideways back as far as you can get will protect the first section of it. The second one needs a #4 Camalot or larger. Everything after that can be done using a regular rack. Good pro the entire way.

Comments: Easy lead for a new beginner. Plenty of gear throughout the climb. Top section can be slightly difficult for the grade though. Overall a good lead for a new beginner with good moves at the top.

Comments: This one is a head check. Not much pro for the top section. The mantle into the middle was comitting and required good focus.
