Comments: Not sure if I just got spoiled climbing in RMNP but this climb was pretty disappointing. The Third pitch was good, the rest were bad.

Comments: The crux pitch was amazing, the other pitches were unremarkable.

Comments: ^ I used a 5, the party in front of me used a 6. Either one will work fine.

Comments: Climbed it yesterday, and someone bailed off a quicklink halfway up the route. I tried to get it off, but it was on there pretty good. If someone wants to bring a wrench up there, that would be great. Also, I know it's been beaten to death, but please don't be the guy bailing off quicklinks, it's a pain in the ass for everyone else.

Comments: We added bolts to the belays at the top of pitches one and three. Also added a bolt to the traverse on P4 (on Whit's suggestion).

Comments: The crux pitch is one of the best in the park. If it were a couple pitches taller or closer to a trailhead, it would be a top five classic route.

Comments: This climb seemed like a pick your own adventure type deal. I ended up below the summit block and climbed a pretty cool 5.7-8 handcrack/corner past a nest of webbing and then up the finger crack.

Comments: Thought I would add my 2 cents after climbing the route. No need for a hammer, however, I found tri cams were really useful. We brought doubles from green alien to #4 camalots plus a #5. Offsets would have been nice but we got by without them. Someone posted to bring a #6 camalot, we brought one and I didn't use it at all. I'm about 6' and was able to climb the last pitch without a cheater stick, all clips were easily reachable except for the last one which I got with two ... more >>

Comments: The top of this is sugar snow over steep kitty litter right now. I'd wait for a little more snow before doing it.

Comments: Hey Brett, I was on the route on 7/3, and it was pretty dry. Maybe it rained the night before you got on it?

Comments: Climbed this with Adam, once you're above the last bolt the route trends slightly right on the better looking holds. I went left at first and got into an area where it was clear people had been pulling off chunks of rock. Not a great place to be when you're going to hit the deck if a hold breaks.

Comments: ^Joseph,

There are no eyebolts on this route. There is a nest of webbing at the end of the third pitch traverse, but that's the only fixed anchor I can remember. If you've done much climbing, you shouldn't have trouble building an anchor at the end of any of the pitches.

Comments: Pretty sweet route. On the approach the fixed rope is currently there for the descent and in decent shape. I tried combining the last two pitches using a single rope and got stopped by some heinous rope drag. It might have worked with double ropes but I would advise against it with only a single. Also, the summit register was gone, maybe the next party could bring up a spare nalgene?

Comments: Didn't realize the bolts end after the roof and ended up climbing quite a ways with no pro. Bring some small cams!

Comments: If you're trying to get from 3 to 1 with two 60's be careful! The anchor is right at the end of the 60's and it wouldn't be hard to go off the ends of the ropes if you forgot to tie knots.

Comments: Climbed this one a couple days ago and didn't notice anything too loose at the bottom of changing corners. The loose flake on the pitch after the enduro is still there though. It makes an interesting, almost metallic sound when you hit it.
