Comments: Great route! More intimidating from the ground. The movement and exposure are wild. This can feel harder if you don't find the good undercling at the second crux ;)
You'll most likely have this side of creek side all to yourself.

Comments: Good chance this has been climbed long before, I pulled 2 pins out of this line a couple years ago.

Comments: This route is awesome and should get done more often!!! My partner lukas and i did it in a day, 5hr 30min to the summit, up and down total of 7hrs.18th party on the summit. The key was short fixing pitches 1-2, and combining 4-5. Found myself, as usual on most of the other Fisher trade routes, out of my aiders alot on p1-3 making free moves saving time. P.4-5 when combined can be climbed all free by following french free through the last aid part.
The "x" pitch isn... more >>

Comments: Great route that has diverse climbing, solid rock, and safe (if not over bolted, not complaining) bolting and solid anchors. The first pitch is a fun chimney, that is tucked in an alcove, P2 isn't great.

The headwall is AMAZING thin, thoughful face climbing. You can combine P3-4 for a long, continuous, technical pitch, skipping what looked like an uncomfortable semi-hanging belay. We had 20 draws and did some backcleaning where bolts were close together.

The 5th pitch was s... more >>

Comments: Fun route and well worth the effort! A rack singles 0.3-0.75, and doubles 1-4, single 5 and 6 worked well. The first pitch seemed a tad harder than the second pitch, which can easily be layed back for the first half. Route finding is straightforward with great belay stances. Has everything from wide crack to runout slab.

Comments: Here is a good beta photo of EOB with surrounding routes. When I went back and bolted the first pitch, I followed the way I originally went while leading it on gear, hence the rope drag. There really wasn't to much rope drag while leading it on gear, perhaps because there wasn't much gear. In retrospect, I could have straightened the bolted line out on the part before the roof, though that rock looks a little more friable. It is possible to stop above the ... more >>

Comments: Is it possible to do the first 3 bolts of Gneiss Route and continue into R.M from the anchor at the top of Billy without much of an issue?

Comments: This is a great route with each pitch being fun and interesting; bolts and gear right where you need protection. Did the traverse right instead of the 5.10+ V-slot, quick and easy with a cool tunnel up behind chockstone, best to belay before this, unrope and make easy scramble through). Highly recommend continuing on to Acid Crack on Velcro Wall to summit Sheep Rock. You can easily walk down to the raps on the 5.8 to the right of Acid Crack and do two raps (I had a 70m). From there, it... more >>

Comments: There is a variation waiting for someone to bolt it just right of Eye of the Beholders 3rd pitch, stemming up the opposite dihedral. I have top roped, cleaned, and chalked where bolts might go. I lack a drill and bolts, have at it! 5.10, 7 or so bolts.

Comments: As of my April 2nd ascent There is no longer a bolt at the end of pitch 7, just before the belay ledge,which i assumed is what ben pulled out, requiring trickery to get to the anchor. Next person up should take a bolt kit.

Comments: Just like a lot of other clean aid routes in the desert offset nuts AND cams kept this pretty mellow.
Double set of nuts, having doubles of the DMM offsets was perfect
Double set of cams plus one #4. Offset mastercams. some slings/draws.
No tricams or anything else really needed.
2 60m ropes with straight forward raps
An optional #5 or #6 camalot for the initial crack at the start, but its very easy.
Makes for a great solo route

Comments: Great climb! Cool temps help and there are plenty of rests (two being no hands if you work the feet right) before and after the crux sections. The roof isn't hard if you're good at stemming.

Comments: No way this thing is 5.12; unless you climb it very contrivedly if that's a word. Pulling over the roof is maybe the crux, but there is a huge layback pinch the whole way up the pegmatite.
A good example of bolts trying to force you to climb harder ground. Luckily the natural line follows arms reach of the bolts the whole way.

Comments: I think this should be bolted, Wayne spotted the line and put a lot of work into cleaning it up. After we climbed the route on top rope, and he realized it could be led, it was to him, his last mark he'd leave in Eldo before moving away.

Comments: This makes for a sweet trad line for those wanting to not use the bolts. Offset cams are nice, a #3 Camalot protects the traverse and mantle up and left and the beginning of traverse.
